Recovering Compensation for Your Norwalk Personal Injuries
In general, there are two primary types of compensation you may be able to recover if you have a personal injury case against the party or parties who caused your accident and injuries. This includes:
Economic Expenses and Losses
Economic compensation arising from a personal injury case may include financial expenses and losses such as:
- Medical bills
- Care costs
- Future treatment costs
- Lost pay and future lost income
- Property damages
- Related out-of-pocket expense
Non-economic losses are those that accident victims suffer but that do not have a direct financial cost. Many people refer to this as “pain and suffering.” California law puts a limit on the amount of non-economic losses recovered by victims of medical malpractice at $250,000 under California Civil Code section 3333.2. However, this cap does not apply to other types of personal injury cases.
In some rare cases, you may also be eligible for additional types of compensation. Your Norwalk personal injury lawyer can explain more if you may qualify.

Our Norwalk Personal Injury Attorneys May Be Able to Build a Case for You
At Pintas & Mullins Law Firm, our team believes accident victims should not have to pay for their injuries, treatment, and other expenses out of pocket. Instead, those responsible for their accident should have to cover these costs and any other additional damages. This is why we work to build strong cases to recover a fair settlement or award for our clients.
We also handle these cases with no upfront costs to the victim or their family. We front the costs to pursue an award and only recoup those costs and our fees after we secure a settlement or verdict at trial. If we do not get compensation for our clients, we do not get paid.

Time Limits on Filing a Norwalk Personal Injury Lawsuit
If you were the victim of an injury or accident in Norwalk or another location in the greater Los Angeles area, you might be able to hold the liable parties accountable and secure a financial award. However, you only have a limited time to take the steps necessary to do so, per the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1.
Generally, the California statute of limitations on personal injury accidents gives victims two years from the time of their injury to decide if they will need to take their case to court. The decision process, though, takes time. For example, your lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm will need to:
- Investigate your accident.
- Identify the potentially liable parties.
- Prove the value of your losses.
- Seek a settlement based on the case they built.
- Negotiate with the insurance company or at-fault party.
- Determine if any settlement offers compensate you fairly.
Only once we have taken these steps can we determine if we may need to file a lawsuit and represent you in court, asking the judge and a jury to grant you an award based on the case we present. For this reason, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible after your injuries occur.
