Can I Be Compensated for Emotional Distress or for My Pain and Suffering?

It is natural to wonder what your car accident case might be worth. In California, you have the right to seek damages for the full extent of your losses, which includes compensation for your noneconomic losses. Maximizing your settlement requires an understanding of the types of damages available under the law. You must also know how to prove you have suffered such a loss.

How to Recover the Compensation You Deserve

You may receive compensation through a benefit in your insurance called medical payments, or “Med Pay.” Medical payments are compensation from your insurance company for medical treatment that you seek in a car accident. However, many of these medical payments are reimbursable, which means that if you receive any compensation from a third party, those medical payments need to be repaid back to the injured party’s insurance company at a certain percentage.
