I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.

What Factors Can Affect the Compensation I’m Entitled to After An Accident?

Some factors that can impact the types of compensation you may be entitled to include:

Severity of Injuries

The severity of your injuries will significantly impact the types of compensation you can recover. More severe injuries, such as spinal cord damage, often result in higher compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Lost Income and Loss Of Earning Capacity

If your injuries prevent you from working or reduce your ability to work, you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages, lost earning potential, and future income losses.

Pain and Suffering

Compensation for pain and suffering compensates you for physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish caused by your injuries. The compensation you can recover for pain and suffering can vary and depends on the severity and impact of your injuries.

Disability and Impairment

If your injuries result in a permanent disability that impacts your ability to perform daily activities or enjoy life,  you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disability benefits
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Property Damage
If your personal property, such as your vehicle, phone, or laptop, was damaged in the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for repair or replacement costs.

Insurance Coverage

The compensation you can recover can also depend on insurance policy limits.

Percentage Of Fault

In California, you can recover compensation even if you were 99% at fault. However, your compensation will be reduced based on your percentage of fault.

What is the Statute Of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in California?

In California, you will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you miss this deadline, your case will be dismissed and you will be unable to pursue compensation for all accident-related damages. When you hire an attorney at Child & Jackson to handle your case, they will ensure that your lawsuit is filed correctly and within the statute of limitations.
