How Much is my Personal Injury Claim Worth?

If we believe you have a strong claim for compensation, we take immediate steps to start the legal process, which can ultimately help us maximize recoverable damages under California law. We investigate the accident scene, consult experts, interview witnesses and subpoena medical and police records. Our attorneys take a proactive, detail-oriented approach when assessing the true value of your personal injury case.

That said, there are many variables that will affect how much money you can recover after being injured by another party’s negligence. It’s understandable that clients want to know the projected settlement offer or verdict, but each case is unique, and there is no magic formula for calculating this sum. A good rule of thumb is to choose a personal injury lawyer who will outline the key factors that influence this outcome, rather than promising a big-figure settlement.

Your answers to the following questions will largely determine how much your personal injury claim is worth:

  • What is the type and severity of your injury?
  • Did you have one or multiple surgeries?
  • Were you partially to blame for the accident?
  • Where did the injury take place?
  • How has the injury negatively affected your life?
  • What is your prognosis for recovery?
  • How much are your past hospital and medical bills?
  • How much lost income (both past and future) is related to your personal injuries?
  • Will you need extensive rehabilitation?
  • Will you be able to return to work?
  • Did you suffer permanent or partial disability or disfigurement?
  • Was a wrongful death involved?
  • Did the liable party violate any laws at the time of the accident?

If the claim or lawsuit is successful, your compensation package may include damages for economic and non-economic losses such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Out-of-pocket expenses that resulted from the injury

Placing a fair monetary value on intangibles like “emotional distress” or “loss of enjoyment of life” takes immense skill, as your attorney must demonstrate past and future suffering in a quantifiable way.

Even if you suffered chronic pain injuries that are difficult to prove, never underestimate the value of your claim. Our attorneys possess the determination and knowledge to build a formidable case, and are renowned for achieving swift justice for our clients.

Ellis Law cannot predict your final recovery at the outset, but we can provide the range of settlement amounts procured in similar cases. If you were offered an insurance settlement before retaining counsel, understand that this is likely much lower than the real value of your case.  

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in California?

Statutes of limitations dictate the amount of time given to file a legal claim for damages. In California, you have two years from the date the harm occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit. If the defendant involves a state, county or federal governmental agency, this time limit is usually just six months. After the statute expires, you forfeit your right to bring a claim before the courts. For this reason, injured parties are encouraged to consult with an attorney at Ellis Law as soon as possible.

What Constitutes Negligence in California?

California law provides that individuals or entities are responsible for injuries caused by their negligence. “Negligence” is a legal term that describes actions (or a failure to act) that falls below an ordinary standard of care. For example, a patron who slips and breaks her hip on a wet supermarket floor may have a claim for negligence if the owner did not dry the spill or warn customers. Any legal claim based on negligence involves a violation of a legal duty owed by the defendant to the injured person.

California Civil Code 1714 states: “Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person, except so far as the latter has, willfully or by want of ordinary care, brought the injury upon himself or herself.”

Plaintiffs must establish the following four elements to plead a cause of action for negligence:

  1. Duty – The defendant owed a duty to use “ordinary care” in conducting activities from which injury might reasonably be expected. For instance, all motorists have a duty to use reasonable care while operating a vehicle.
  2. Breach – The defendant breached their duty of care, either willfully or by accident. In California, this breach may also occur when the defendant violates a statute, such as running a red light and causing a traffic accident. By violating CA Vehicle Code § 21703, the defendant would be negligent per se.
  3. Causation The defendant’s conduct or inaction directly caused or contributed in some form to the accident and injury. For example, a distracted driver who veers off the road, harming a pedestrian. The driver’s actions would be viewed as causation for the injury event.
  4. Damages – Actual damages were sustained. These damages can include both physical and emotional injuries, pain and suffering.

Under California’s comparative negligence laws, plaintiffs can still recover compensation even if they were partially at fault for the accident. In these personal injury actions, the award or settlement is reduced based on the plaintiff’s percentage of liability.
