Auto Accident Injuries
The Javid Trial Firm specializes in cases where the plaintiff suffered catastrophic injuries (i.e. burns, amputation, brain injury, death, paralysis, etc.) We handle the auto accident cases other law firms aren’t equipped and don’t have the resources to handle because such cases will most likely necessitate the use of expensive medical and other experts and have a higher probability of being taken to trial.
Some of the more serious physical injuries that we have helped our clients recover financial compensation include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Internal bleeding and organ damage

Auto Accident Financial Compensation
The Javid Trial Firm can help you recover compensation for any damages incurred as a result of an auto accident. These damages typically fall into one of three categories: economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.
Economic damages, also known as special damages, are intended to compensate the victim of an auto accident for out-of-pocket expenses they incur as a result of the accident. These damages would include medical bills covering the treatment of any injuries arising from the accident, property damages to cover the damage to the victim’s vehicle, lost wages if the injury is severe enough to keep them from working, etc.
If you suffer long-term or permanent disability as a result of the accident, you can also seek compensation for future medical care, rehabilitation, physical therapy, nursing care, and vocational rehabilitation. The value of these damages will be determined based on estimates made by medical experts.
Non-economic damages, also known as general damages, are designed to compensate personal injury victims for intangible losses associated with the changes the injury has caused in their lives. These damages include things like pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of consortium (loss of a relationship with a partner). These losses are based on the tangible losses included in the economic damages. For example, an auto accident victim who has large medical bills for serious injuries is assumed to have a greater amount of pain and suffering.
Punitive damages aren’t designed to compensate the victim of an auto accident. Instead, their purpose is to “punish” the at-fault party. In California, punitive damages are rarely awarded because they only apply when it can be proven that the person at-fault for the auto accident acted with malice, oppression, or fraud.
Some of the types of damages that we have helped our clients recover compensation for include:
- Past medical expenses (ambulance and hospital expenses)
- Future medical expenses (future medical expenses you will incur as a result of the accident)
- Lost earnings (time off work)
- Pain and suffering (in connection with the physical injuries you suffered)
- Property damage (car repairs and rental car costs)
- Emotional distress
- Punitive damages
