Personal Injury Lawyer in Santa Monica Fighting for Below Compensation

If you are pursuing a personal injury claim in Santa Monica, several types of compensation may be available. Generally, a personal injury attorney in Santa Monica can help recover damages such as:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes reimbursement for immediate medical treatments and ongoing health care needs related to your injury. It also covers rehabilitation costs and specialized medical equipment to aid recovery.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for wages lost during your recovery period and potential future earnings you cannot receive due to your injury.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical injuries and emotional turmoil caused by the injury. This includes both immediate and long-term suffering.
  • Property Damage: If your property was damaged or lost due to the incident leading to your injury, you may be eligible for compensation to repair or replace items like vehicles, personal belongings, and other valuables.
  • Punitive Damages: In instances where the defendant’s conduct is particularly harmful or malicious, punitive damages may be awarded. These are not tied to your direct losses but are intended to punish the wrongdoer and prevent similar actions in the future.

Consulting with a Santa Monica personal injury lawyer can help you better understand what specific compensation you might be entitled to based on the particulars of your case.

4 Elements of Negligence in a Personal Injury Case

In a personal injury case, proving negligence typically involves establishing four key elements. These elements form the foundation of a negligence claim, and the plaintiff must demonstrate each one to win the case:

Duty of Care

The defendant was legally responsible for acting safely and preventing harm. This is a standard expectation in similar circumstances.

Breach of Duty

The defendant failed to uphold their duty by acting carelessly or irresponsibly, which is not how a reasonable person would act.


There must be a direct link between the defendant's actions and the plaintiff's injury, showing that the injury resulted from the breach.


The plaintiff must have sustained actual harm or losses, including physical injuries, financial losses, or emotional distress.

These elements form the basis of most personal injury claims, whether handled by a Santa Monica personal injury attorney or elsewhere. For the plaintiff to succeed, each component must be sufficiently demonstrated.
