We Will Make Sure Your Claim Accounts for All Potentially Recoverable Damages

At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are passionate about helping victims of personal injury and wrongful death recover the compensation they need to get their lives back. Besides medical bills and lost income, a serious injury or death in the family can cause severe pain and emotional trauma. These are called "non-economic damages” because they are not objectively verifiable using invoices and receipts. Fortunately, personal injury claimants have the right to pursue compensation for their non-economic losses in addition to their economic damages. The San Anselmo personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers have extensive experience helping clients pursue non-economic damages. The types of evidence we might use to prove your damages will depend on the facts of your case, but in general, the following evidence might contribute to the strength of your claim:

  1. Diagnostic images (MRIs, CTs, X-rays);
  2. Income tax returns, paystubs, and other proof of lost income;
  3. Your journal about how your injury or loss has affected you personally;
  4. Testimony from your loved ones and caregivers;
  5. Photos of injuries and property damage;
  6. Estimates for property repairs and replacement; and
  7. Testimony from medical experts, vocational experts, and economists.

If the person who injured you acted with malice, fraud, or oppression, you may be able to recover a punitive award in addition to your economic and non-economic damages. Punitive damages might be available if you were injured by a drunk driver, for example, or violently attacked. Unfortunately, just because you are entitled to damages doesn’t mean the insurance company will step up to the plate and offer a fair settlement. In fact, you can expect the claims adjuster to use all the resources at his or her disposal to dispute your case. The adjuster might review your social media profiles for evidence to use against you, try to coerce you into making a recorded statement, or put you under surveillance. Even if you have compelling evidence, the insurance company might be more inclined to challenge your claim if they think you wouldn’t be willing to go to trial. This can happen when people represent themselves or hire an incompetent attorney who is never willing to go to court. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we will make sure you are treated fairly by the insurance company from day one. You won’t have to make any recorded statements because we will handle all correspondence with the adjuster on your behalf. We will also gather all available evidence so your case is as strong as possible before we enter settlement negotiations. Our trial lawyers have many decades of combined experience in litigation, so insurance companies in California know that we are willing to go to trial if they refuse to cooperate.
