Helping Injured Victims & Their Families Recover from Negligence
A serious injury has the potential to completely disrupt your life—physically, emotionally, and financially. The cost of medical bills and the impact an injury can have on a victim’s ability to work can set a person back economically, while the accident itself can lead to severe pain, suffering, and distress.
If your injuries were caused by the negligence of another person, the Oakland personal injury attorneys at Pacific Workers', The Lawyers for Injured Workers can help. We can assist you in filing an insurance claim and guide you through the legal process. We are committed to representing your rights and pursuing the compensation you deserve.
A personal injury case can involve any type of accident or incident that results in harm.

Personal Injury Claim Damages
In general, the purpose of pursuing a personal injury claim is to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages that a victim has incurred as a result of an injury.
To calculate a verdict or settlement, the full costs that a victim has been responsible for in the wake of an injury are often added to arrive at a figure. To account for non-economic damages, the true cost may be multiplied or added to.
Common damages in personal injury cases include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Transportation expenses
- Property damage
- Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering
A personal injury attorney’s job is to represent the interests of a person who has been hurt because of the negligence of other people. In performing this responsibility, personal injury lawyers recover compensation for the damages resulting from injury and hold the negligent parties accountable.
