Types of Car Accident Damages
But don’t delay. In the state of California the statute of limitations on personal injury cases is 2 years. Which means, from the moment of your car accident, and subsequent injuries, you have two years in which to file your claim. Failure to do so can result in a forfeiture of your rights and ability to collect compensation. Get in touch with a Fresno personal injury attorney at the Law Office of Rick D. Banks today and let us get started, before time runs out. With proper counsel you could be awarded damages from one or more of the following categories:
- Emergency medical services
- Extended hospital treatment
- Specialist diagnostics and care
- Therapeutic services, physical and emotional
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of wages and employment
- Loss of consortium
- Funeral costs
- Wrongful death
Items to Consider Following Your Fresno Car Accident
If you are reading this, there is a good chance you’ve already been in a car accident and you are wondering what options are available to you. First, assuming you have already spoken with the authorities and visited your doctor or nearest emergency room, you should take the time to collect anything that may be related to the accident and organize it in a file. This includes hospital records, police reports, phone numbers of those who witnessed the accident and any other concrete pieces of evidence you may have been provided following the wreck. Should you decide to pursue legal action, these items will be critical in building a successful claim. Do NOT lose them.
Additionally, if possible, take as many photos and videos of the accident scene, your damaged vehicle, your injuries and anything else that may seem pertinent to the collision. Like the aforementioned documentation, these images and movies can become a linchpin in your case.
