Overview of Loss of Enjoyment of Life Damages in a California Personal Injury Claim
Loss of enjoyment of life damages refer to the diminishment of enjoyment in daily tasks after sustaining a serious injury after an accident. This can include activities such as hobbies, experiences, or being able to participate in other life events that you may have been able to do before your accident, such as the following:
- Recreational activities
- Family bonding activities
- Social engagements
- Volunteer activities
- Running errands
- Doing household chores

How to Calculate Loss of Enjoyment of Life Damages in a Personal Injury Claim
Calculating non-economic damages such as loss of enjoyment of life can be challenging without the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. Due to the lack of tangible evidence, such as medical bills, a lawyer can calculate the loss of enjoyment of life damages based on unique factors specific to your life circumstances and the impact of injuries, including the following:
- The severity of the injuries you sustained
- Future impact of your injuries
- Permanent scarring, disfigurement, or disability
- How injuries impacted your career
- The type of activity that you can no longer enjoy
- Your age
- Your educational background
Loss of enjoyment of life damages are typically calculated by analyzing and comparing the current state of your life before and after sustaining an injury in an accident. Evidence that can help prove the toll your injuries have had on your day-to-day life can include a physician’s testimony to why you have lost certain abilities and how that loss impacts you, testimony from friends and family on what you used to enjoy in your former life, or photo and video evidence depicting the activities you used to enjoy.
With the help of the skilled Younglove Law Group personal injury lawyers, we can help build a robust claim on your behalf by obtaining valuable evidence depicting the loss of enjoyment of life.
