California Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury lawyers are attorneys who represent individuals who have been injured as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another party. These personal injuries are not limited to physical injuries, as they also include emotional injuries and economic losses. So, if you feel you’ve been significantly cheated out of an opportunity or have incurred physical or emotional injury, finding a personal injury lawyer might be the first place to start. Usually, an experienced personal injury lawyer would help you assess the level of damages done, seek evidence that backs up your claim, and help you secure a win in court. Fighting to get justice for a case of personal injury isn’t something you should do on your own. At best, you’d only get attention and no result. There are too many eggshells only an experienced California personal injury lawyer would know to avoid.
Personal injury lawyers give people who have been hurt the legal advice, direction, and support they need to win compensation. The following are typically included among the general duties of a personal injury attorney comparable to those of a litigator:
- Investigating claims and gathering evidence
- Documenting injuries and expenses
- Calculating damages
- Interviewing witnesses
- Reviewing medical documents
Why Should You Hire a California Personal Injury Attorney?
If you’ve been hurt and need help filing a claim with your insurance company, a personal injury attorney can do that while you focus on getting better. It is not in the best interest of accident victims to help insurance companies by giving statements and signing medical releases. Accident victims may feel pressure from the insurance adjuster to settle their claim before they fully understand how badly they were hurt and how much money they lost. Hiring a lawyer to protect your interests after an injury will ensure this doesn’t happen and that you get the care you need while the legal system sorts out your case.
A lawyer who specializes in personal injury cases knows how and where to look for the evidence needed to prove who is at fault and who is responsible according to the laws that cover these situations. Depending on the law that applies to your situation, the things you need to show to back up your claim may be slightly different. Your lawyer will do the necessary investigation to determine who is at fault and collect the evidence necessary to establish liability.
If you don’t know much about personal injury laws, it can be hard to figure out how much your damage claim is worth. The insurance company tend to pay as little as possible to settle your claim. Your financial and non-financial losses help a personal injury lawyer figure out how much your claim is worth. In your case, an attorney knows how to maximize non-economic or pain and suffering damages.
Your injury lawyer puts together a full settlement demand package for the insurance company. This package explains the legal basis for who is responsible and liable. The settlement demand also includes evidence to substantiate the value of your injury claim and prove your damages. Our lawyers are excellent negotiators. We pride ourselves on getting the highest possible settlement for your claim. We are, nonetheless, highly trained and experienced trial lawyers.
Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in California
The statute of limitations is a legal term that refers to the time frame in which an individual can file a lawsuit or claim for a specific issue. In the context of injuries, the statute of limitations is the time frame in which an individual can file an injury or property damage claim against another party as a result of an accident. It is important to understand the statute of limitations for accident claims because if an individual misses the deadline to file a claim, they may be barred from seeking compensation for their injuries or damages.
The statute of limitations clock starts ticking on the date of the accident, not the date that the individual discovers the injuries or damages. For example, if an individual was involved in a motorcycle accident on January 1, 2021, and did not discover their injuries until December 31, 2021, they would still have until January 1, 2023 (California has a two-year statute of limitations) to file a claim.
It is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after an injury to determine the applicable statute of limitations and ensure that a claim is filed within the required time frame. An attorney can also help the individual understand their rights and options, as well as assist with the claims process and negotiate with the insurance company.
