Before you file a lawsuit, you should be aware of what you can potentially earn. One of our attorneys with experience in gas leak cases can give you a full breakdown of how a case is valued, as well as your earning potential. The value of a case is dependent on many factors, some of which include:

  1. The severity and magnitude of the physical health damage suffered by victims.
  1. The level of indiscriminate, intentional and or reckless actions taken by SoCalGas or any of their employees resulting in the harm suffered.
  1. The percentage of liability which can be attributed to the reckless or negligent behavior of the at-fault party.
  1. Level of Pain and Suffering – including emotional distress and psychological damage resulting from the exposure to the methane gas leak, and being compelled to depart from your residence. Pain and suffering compensation is calculated on a per-diem basis in the state of California. For example, if your exposure to dangerous elements lasted for 20 days, a jury will calculate a daily monetary number and multiply it by 20 days. If the exposure results in long-term or permanent harm, then a potential jury will place a daily monetary amount on future pain and suffering, which a victim is likely to experience as a result of the harm suffered.
    Punitive damages can be awarded for these victims, but as most courts view them as unnecessary or excessive, only an accomplished lawyer experienced in gas leak cases will be able to win them.
  1. Amount of economic damages suffered by victims. Economic damages may include loss of property, reduction of the value of a property due to a hazardous condition caused by the at-fault party, costs of relocation, costs of new housing, transportation, and reimbursement for hotel room stays. An expert attorney who has experience in gas leak cases can secure you total coverage for your economic damages.
  1. Loss of income and future loss of earnings – victims are entitled to lose income and future earning potential due to long-term complications associated with exposure to toxic chemicals.

An experienced attorney skilled at negotiating will be able to win you the maximum settlement possible under the law.
