Damages in a Personal Injury Case
After getting injured in a motor vehicle accident in Huntington Beach you might be entitled to receive compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
There are different types of damages that you might be able to seek:
- Medical Bills – This is related to everything injury-wise stemming from the accident, and the bills can add up quickly.
- Loss of Wages – If you have missed work due to your injuries, or if you foresee missing work in the future.
- Pain and Suffering – Referred to as simply “non-economic damages”, things like physical pain, and mental suffering that a victim might endure.
- Punitive Damages – In a personal injury case, punitive damages are sometimes awarded by the judge or jury if the conduct of the defendant was outrageous or egregious.
- Rehabilitation Costs – This would be related to someone who suffers a major injury and needs rehabilitation moving forward like physical therapy, etc.
Making Demands and Negotiating
Many times a small personal injury claim could be settled outside of court before a lawsuit needs to be filed.
If our law firm feels that your case can be settled, then we will make an official demand to the other insurance (and lawyers) to settle your case ASAP.
By avoiding a lawsuit, a settlement can be reached much quicker and save everybody time and money.
But there are instances where our clients have an injury claim for a permanent injury, and in this situation, you can count on Daniel Kim to help you all the way, and he won’t settle just to get a fast payday.

Dealing with Insurance Companies after an Accident
If you have never had to deal with the insurance companies after an accident (hopefully you’ve never been injured) then count your lucky stars.
Insurance companies are very large corporations that don’t enjoy paying out money on accident claims.
Some accident victims think the insurance company is their friend and that by dealing directly with the insurance company that life will be just fine.
Don’t make that mistake.
The insurance adjuster might come across as friendly and nice and wants to be your best friend, but in reality, he has a job to do.
And that job is to minimize the value of your claim if possible.
Once you start giving recorded statements, signing papers, and telling a story that might not be in your favor, the insurance company then may use all of that against you.
Insurance companies have a way of determining fault in an accident and it might surprise you to know how it works.
