Why You Need an Attorney to Recover Your Lost California Investment

It can be very difficult to recover losses from investment fraud without assistance from an attorney you can trust. Although the Internal Revenue Service has processes in place to help victims of certain types of fraud, such as Ponzi schemes, a lawyer may also be necessary to help with these processes. Hiring a lawyer from Meyer Wilson can help with every aspect of your case, from the initial evaluation of your losses to negotiating a fair settlement from the defendant(s). Hiring an attorney allows a professional to pursue damages on your behalf while you focus your attention elsewhere.

How to Recover Losses

Dozens of types of investment fraud pervade the market in California. Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes, insider trading, fraudulent transfers, trading fraud, churning, broker misconduct, oil and gas scams, real estate fraud and securities fraud are some common examples. If you fell victim to one of these fraud schemes and sustained significant losses, a civil claim could restore the money a fraudster took. Filing a civil claim against an individual or corporation in California could lead to the defendant paying for your economic and non-economic damages.

You must abide by the state’s statute of limitations to bring a claim in California. In general, you will have three years from the date of discovery or the date a reasonable person would have discovered the investment fraud scheme. A lawyer can help you file the proper paperwork by the state’s deadline so you do not miss your opportunity to recover losses. A lawyer can also help you prove your case against a defendant so you successfully obtain a settlement or judgment award.

Compensation Available

If your lawyer wins your investment fraud claim on your behalf, you and your family could receive financial compensation for the losses you suffered because of the incident. This can include economic and non-economic damages. Your attorney can file a demand letter seeking an appropriate amount for all your losses.

  • Lost money or income
  • Lost assets or property
  • Attorney’s fees
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost quality of life
  • Punitive damages

A compensatory award could make up for everything you lost out of pocket because of the fraud scheme, as well as potential additional damages such as interest payments or penalties against the defendant. You may also qualify for a punitive award, which serves to punish the defendant for investment misconduct. Combined, both types of damages could provide your family with future financial stability.
