Injuries affect more than just your body. Your finances can be greatly affected. Medical expenses are steep, and even health insurance may not cover the cost. If your injuries caused you to miss work, you must take that loss into account. Sometimes, to stay financially secure, you may have no choice but to file a lawsuit.
Civil court exists for situations just like these. Within this institution, a wronged party can seek financial compensation for their injuries. When a defendant loses a civil case, they are not put in jail. They must, instead, pay financial damages to the plaintiff.
When you must file a lawsuit in Santa Barbara, you can trust Klein DeNatale Goldner to represent you. With a combined 70 years of legal experience, we have the skills and the tools to help fight for the compensation you deserve.
Negligence in an Injury Case
Civil lawsuits often revolve around some form of negligence. This is when one party caused harm to another through inaction. It is often easy to confuse this concept. People tend to look at what someone else did when they caused damage, such as driving too fast. It is more legally accurate to think of what the person didn’t do. If they were driving too fast, it means that they failed to follow the speed limit. They were negligent in obeying traffic laws.
Negligence can take place in many forms and many situations. It can be easy to recognize in a vehicle accident, but sometimes it is not discovered until much later. A defective product, for example, can cause injury after it has been used several times. The manufacturer was somehow negligent when designing, building, or labeling its products, causing injury to consumers.

Lawsuit compensation is given in the form of damages. You can receive damages for several different reasons. Your medical expenses can be reimbursed. If you lost wages due to your injuries, those can be compensated as well. You may even be eligible to receive damages for lost potential wages. For instance, you may have lost a career opportunity due to your recovery time. Sometimes, you can receive damages to help compensate for your pain and suffering.
Wrongful death is a kind of personal injury lawsuit where the injured party does not survive. In California, a surviving family member can file a lawsuit on the deceased’s behalf. The family of the deceased can receive compensation for several reasons. They can receive damages for medical expenses, funeral expenses, and mental anguish. They could also be compensated for their loss of support. For example, the deceased may have managed the home or the children. In their absence, the family must learn to adjust. Financial support can help greatly during this transition.
