Los Angeles, CA is home to nearly 4 million people, and Los Angeles County is home to 10 million, making LA County the most populous county in the United States by almost double. With this many people living in such close proximity, it is no surprise that personal injury claims arise due to someone’s negligent or reckless behavior that causes injury or wrongful death to another. These situations allow for the victims (or, in the case of wrongful death, the surviving family members) to seek financial compensation for a number of impacts, or damages, that the accident has had on their lives. Most often, a victim will file a personal injury claim with an insurance company representing the at-fault party and assuming liability for the repayment.
Filing an insurance claim is actually a relatively simple process once you clearly identify the liable party, but getting the money you deserve is a different story entirely. Whether you are seeking compensation directly from the party that caused your injury, or if you are filing a claim with an insurance company, you can be assured of one thing: nobody on the other side of your personal injury claim will be trying to ensure that you get all of the money you deserve. In fact, insurance companies and civil defense litigators alike are looking for the quickest and cheapest way to settle your claim.

Making Sense Of Your Personal Injury Case
One of the first things to understand about your situation is what makes a personal injury case after an accident in Los Angeles, California. The first details to understand are those relating to a defendant’s duty of care and how a failure to uphold a duty of care can lead to a Los Angeles personal injury case.
The Four Factors Of a Personal Injury Case
The following four factors must be present in order for a victim to be able to seek compensation for their injuries. These factors are applicable in countless situations, and since no two accidents are ever truly alike, this is often the simplest way to get clarity about a situation.
Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?
The factors explained above can give you a general idea about whether or not you have a case, but the best way to truly know how you can move forward is by connecting with our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys for a case evaluation. There is a lot of nuance in these cases, and without professional personal injury law experience, it can feel impossible to translate the complex California civil code into an explanation of your own rights.
If you are planning to file an insurance claim with the other party’s insurer, then it may be likely that you have the right to move forward with a full personal injury claim. We encourage you to connect with our Los Angeles personal injury law firm before you even contact the insurance company so we can be sure that every step in your claim is taken with the ultimate goal of winning you the maximum settlement for your situation.
When insurance companies are contacted by a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer instead of a victim, they know right from the start that their normal tactics will not work. Send a clear signal from the moment you initiate your claim by partnering with the team at Kirakosian Law from day one.

Proving Fault In a Los Angeles, CA Personal Injury Case
After an accident, one of the first things that a Los Angeles personal injury attorney will need to investigate is the matter of fault: who caused the accident, and how? Under California law, Los Angeles, CA uses a rule known as “pure comparative fault” when assigning fault in a personal injury case. With this law, an individual is able to seek compensation for their damages even if they are partially to blame for the accident, and their final award will be reduced by the percent that they contributed. For example, if you are 10% responsible for a car accident, your final settlement or award will simply be reduced by 10%.
Using Comparative Fault Correctly
This tool is extremely useful in that it does not bar a victim from seeking compensation if they are partially at fault, whereas in states that use “contributory negligence,” 1% of the blame is enough to bar a victim from filing a claim. While beneficial, though, insurance companies have learned to use this law to their advantage by attempting to place as much blame as possible on a victim in order to reduce their financial obligation. Los Angeles personal injury attorneys understand these tactics and will use their own experience with personal injury law to combat this approach and ensure that you do not accept any fault that is not yours to bear.
Calculating Damages For a Los Angeles Personal Injury Accident Victim
Injury victims are owed what are referred to as “compensatory damages” after personal injury accidents, which seek payment for two distinct categories: economic damages and non-economic damages. While each of these categories is equally important, one is much easier to calculate than the other, which is why insurers oftentimes attempt to avoid broaching the subject of non-economic damages as much as possible when working directly with victims. Luckily, your Los Angeles injury attorney will be handling this process on your behalf and aggressively negotiating for the money you deserve.
At the same time that your Los Angeles personal injury lawyer is working towards a final agreement about fault and liability, they will be going through a comprehensive investigation of your situation in order to gather as much evidence as possible about the myriad damages you have suffered. After personal injuries, victims may overlook or fail to recognize many subtle impacts of an accident; attorneys, however, know exactly what to look for and are able to catalog these impacts to ensure that no details are overlooked.
A big part of personal injury cases is the attention to detail regarding the seemingly countless minor damages that Los Angeles injury victims suffer. Each of these impacts adds to the total amount that a victim is owed and one of the biggest benefits of working with Los Angeles personal injury lawyers from the start.
