When a driver fails to do so and injures someone else, the personal injury auto accident lawyers of Lim Law Group are there to keep the driver and the insurance company accountable for the harm they caused.

If you have been injured in an accident, you will often need medical treatment for your injuries. The Los Angeles personal injury auto accident lawyers of Lim Law Group can help you get back on your feet and provide the right medical treatment. Lim Law Group will pursue each claim so that you are compensated to the fullest extent possible.

Medical Expenses and Loss of Income

Often times, automobile accidents result in treatment in the emergency room, and/or treatment from a chiropractor, orthopedist, physical therapist. Such treatment can be to alleviate immediate diagnostic care, or at times to address long-term treatment and/or rehabilitation. The law entitles you to compensation under both circumstances. Moreover, aside from medical bills, the pain and suffering associated with your injuries can cause you to take time off from work, thereby preventing your ability to earn a wage during your recovery time. You are entitled to reimbursement of such loss of income as part of your personal injury claim. It is important to note that when possible, it is best to maintain a good record of all work missed, as well as obtain a note from your physician who can provide details regarding how you will be unable to perform the essential functions of your job due to the nature of the injury. This also applies in circumstances where you were forced to use sick days and/or paid vacation time in order to recover.

Loss of Earning Capacity

In other occasions, when the injury may be so severe as to cause permanent disability, you are entitled to compensation for not only your loss of income but also your loss of earning capacity. In such circumstance, you would be entitled to compensation that is equivalent to the amount you would have made over the course of your career had the accident not occurred minus your current earning capacity given the permanent disability. If you are unable to work altogether due to your permanent injuries and/or disabilities, then you would be entitled to the loss of income for the remainder of your life.

Pain and Suffering

The pain and suffering that you experience after an accident can be one of the worst experiences in your life, especially the pain and suffering you feel at the time of the injury as well as during the entire process of recovery. Moreover, under certain unfortunate circumstances, you may also experience the unimaginable pain associated with having a permanent disability that will never heal. Although your pain and suffering can be the largest portion of your damages, as well as any settlement, it is extremely difficult to quantify. The Los Angeles personal injury lawyers of Lim Law Group can help you to fully capture every aspect of your pain and seek to obtain maximum compensation for your harm.

Property Damage

If you have been involved in an automobile accident, your automobile and/or other property may have been damaged. If so, you are entitled to compensation for repairing the damage to your property or the cash equivalent. You are also entitled to a rental car while your vehicle is being repaired. If there is no need for a rental car, you are still entitled to the loss of use of your property. Aside from your vehicle, the accident may also have damaged/destroyed personal items in your vehicle. You are entitled to compensation for these personal items that were damaged/destroyed in the accident.
