Damage Claims Advice From a Dana Point Car Accident Lawyer

A smart Dana Point accident injury attorney knows that if you've been injured in a car accident, you and your spouse may be entitled to recover a host of damages. Before going into your legal rights concerning compensation, a quick overview of car accidents in Dana Point, California may help.

Car Accidents in Dana Point Take Their Annual Toll

Car accident statistics reported by the California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) revealed that in 2006, two people were killed and 94 were injured in Dana Point car collisions. DUIs were responsible for one death and 22 crash injuries. Pedestrian accidents injured four and motorcycle accidents injured seven. Bicycle accidents killed two and injured six. In 2007, two car accidents resulted in two deaths.

Car Accident Victims May Be Entitled to Recovery in Many Areas

Expert Dana Point car accident lawyers know car accident victims often face a gauntlet of medical bills that seem to go on and on. "If you are seriously injured, you may seek recovery for physical and mental pain and suffering, medical and rehabilitative expenses, permanent impairment and permanent disfigurement, and past and future lost income," notes John Bisnar. "You may also be compensated for the loss of enjoyment of life. You may even be compensated for re-injuring or aggravating an injury you sustained months or years before your car accident." Car accident lawyers advise, however, that to be fairly compensated for your injuries, it helps to keep a daily diary of how the accident has impacted you, your life and your family.

Family Members May Also Recover For Damages

Astute Dana Point car collision lawyers know that you or your spouse may be entitled to recover for damage or loss to the marital relationship. This claim, called "loss of consortium," can be either temporary or permanent. Damages in this category are characterized by any negative effect the accident has had on the marital relationship. This can include loss of the spouse's love, companionship, comfort, affection, solace, moral support, sexual relations, ability to have children, and physical assistance in the maintenance and operation of one's home.
