A personal injury occurs whenever one person’s negligent or intentional actions harm another person. Some personal injury claims arise from honest mistakes, but the parties responsible should still expect to face liability for the damage they cause others. Other personal injuries result from egregious negligence, intentional misconduct, and even illegal activity. The parties responsible for such injuries face civil liability for their victims’ damages and potentially criminal prosecution.
If you or a loved one recently sustained injuries or economic losses in the Pasadena, CA, area due to another party’s actions, a Pasadena personal injury lawyer can assist you in holding them accountable for the damage they have caused you and your family. A personal injury claim can help you secure the compensation you need to recover from your experience as fully as possible. However, you will need experienced legal counsel on your side to see this process through to a successful conclusion.
The Law Offices of Carl D. Barnes can provide the comprehensive legal counsel and ongoing support you need for a challenging personal injury claim. Our firm has assisted many clients in complex personal injury cases spanning all types of injuries and economic losses. When you choose our firm to represent you, we will do everything to maximize your recovery as fully as California state law allows.
If you tried to handle a personal injury claim without legal representation, you could potentially succeed with the claim unassisted, but doing so would be extraordinarily difficult. Not only must you meet stringent court filing deadlines and various procedural obligations with the court, but you would need to handle these necessities while also managing the aftermath of your personal injury. Additionally, if you do manage to secure compensation for your losses without an attorney, you will likely agree to take less than you legally deserve and less than an experienced Pasadena personal injury attorney could have obtained on your behalf.
When you have the right legal team handling your case, it is more likely that you will get the most economic recovery. You will also be able to recover with some peace of mind knowing your attorney can handle your legal affairs and uncover every available compensation channel in your case.

A successful personal injury case can potentially yield various forms of compensation. For example, while you may have the ability to file an insurance claim after some personal injuries, such as those resulting from car accidents, you may need to take further legal action for a complete recovery from your losses. In California, most personal injury plaintiffs can claim compensation for all the economic losses inflicted upon them by the actions of defendants, and many are able to claim pain and suffering compensation as well.
The damages available in a personal injury claim vary depending on the unique details of the case. In most personal injury cases, claimable economic damages include lost income, lost future earning potential, medical expenses, and property damage. These losses are generally easy to prove with the proper records and documentation. Additionally, under California law, personal injury plaintiffs can seek compensation for pain and suffering. The amount they can claim typically hinges on how serious their injuries are, the nature of the defendant’s actions that caused their injuries, and whether they face long-term medical complications.
