The Dominguez Firm provides the following answers to questions frequently encountered by our attorneys as we help people throughout Southern California with their personal injury or workers’ compensation claims. If you have other questions or would like a consult on a particular legal matter, please call us at: 877-924-2639.
Your recovery may be limited. Under California law (Proposition 213) a driver must hold valid automobile liability insurance. If you have been involved in an accident and you did not hold valid liability insurance coverage, your recovery may be limited to your “economic damages”. These include things like medical bills and damaged property. However, you may not be able to recover “non-economic damages.” These include things such as your pain and suffering, the inconvenience an accident causes, physical impairment and disfigurement, and other damages. Call us for a free consultation at 877-924-2639.
Money recovered in a personal injury settlement is generally free from taxation, except in a few very narrow circumstances, such as compensation for loss of wages or medical bills related to your accident which you claimed on your tax return. An experienced attorney can explain any potential tax liabilities in a personal injury settlement.
Personal Injury Law is a wide area of law and allows for compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of others for any number of reasons. Accidents for which you could seek compensation include slip and falls, dog bites, pool injuries, transportation/common carrier accidents, boating accidents, injuries at work, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, sexual harassment claims, and much more.
