Money Damages in Los Angeles Car Accident Injury Collisions

California law provides that victims of car accidents have the legal right to be compensated in money for their injuries and damages. In California, every person who has suffered any injury through the fault of another is entitled “to be made whole.” That is, to be restored, as far as possible, to their pre-injury condition by compensatory money damages. In that regard, California Civil Code Section 3281 specifically states:

“Every person who suffers detriment from the unlawful act or omission of another, may recover from the person in fault a compensation therefor in money, which is called damages.” Civil Code Section 3281.

California law further sets forth the general amount of such compensatory money damages in tort actions such as car accident claims, expressly providing at California Civil Code Section 3333, that:

“For the breach of an obligation not arising from contract, the measure of damages, except where otherwise expressly provided by this Code, is the amount which will compensate for all the detriment proximately caused thereby, whether it could have been anticipated or not.” Civil Code Section 3333.

We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
