  • How do we calculate Non-economic damages for personal injury insurance claim in california?

    What is included in pain and suffering? and how can I claim for non-economic damages?

    Manuel’s Answer

    There is no set formula and you are free to state what value you wish for your pain and suffering. Juries usually want to see some sort of metric associated with your pain and suffering, i.e $ per hour, $per day etc. I usually choose an hourly compensation rate and multiply it by all the hours my client has experienced pain. If an injured person will have surgery in the future, then that person is also entitled to future pain and suffering. However, unless you are represented by an attorney and your lawyer is willing to stand.by you all the way to trial, insurance companies always like to low ball pain and suffering. My advice is get a lawyer near you and let him do the heavy lifting. Best of luck.

  • Kid punched my son at middle school (in his glasses). Put gash in his head. May have permanent scar. Can I sue the parents?

    What are my rights here? I am furious. So far, it sounds pretty unprovoked.

    Manuel’s Answer

    I agree with attorney Mindlin's advice. Be curious. Ask to meet with the principal and ask him for an investigation. If that is done, get a copy of the report. If your son's medical damages are serious, have his pediatrician continue with his treatment and most importantly, make sure that he gets to see a school counselor or a private psychologist. These acts of violence sometimes cause deep emotional damages to young children and should not be tolerated. Always hire a local attorney who practices in this field. Best of luck.
