What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

  • Determine Value of Your Case- An injury lawyer will help you to navigate your specific situation to determine how much your case is worth and how much you may be able to receive in a settlement.
  • Collect Necessary Evidence- There are several types of evidence required for filing a successful injury claim. Personal injury lawyers can help you collect camera footage, statements from witnesses, run asset checks, and much more.
  • Uncover Compensation Opportunities- There may be aspects to your injury claim that will assist in maximizing your payout amount. An injury lawyer can help you find these opportunities.
  • Use Experience for Your Benefit- Personal injury attorneys have a wide range of experience in dealing with insurance companies. Insurance adjusters can be aggressive and ruthless. Our experience will help you get the compensation you deserve for your case.

Should I Hire an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?

Chances are you would greatly benefit from hiring a qualified attorney from our firm. Not only can we walk you through the entire personal injury claim process, but unlike insurance companies, we are true advocates on your side. Insurance companies more often than not are looking out for their own company’s best interest first and foremost, not yours.

Additionally, many people find that their injuries turn out to be more severe days or weeks after they sustained them. If you accept an insurance settlement before you know how serious your injuries actually are, you may find your settlement no longer covers all your medical expenses. An attorney from our firm will fight to protect your rights and help you recover the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.

Personal Injury Statute Of Limitations California

According to the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1 statutes, the statute of limitations on personal injury cases is two years. This means that unless you file your personal injury claim within two years from the date of your injury you will lose your right to recover compensation.

While California does recognize some exceptions to the statute of limitations in some cases, it’s best to file your personal injury claim as soon as possible. Some of these exceptions that can extent or shorten your time period to file a claim include:

  • If your claim is against a city, county or government agency, you have only six months to file a claim
  • If a minor is injured, they have two years from their eighteenth birthday to file before the statute of limitations ends

Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Case

Generally speaking, there are three types of damage available for injury victims to pursue in a personal injury claim. These damages are:

  • Economic, also called general damages
  • Non-economic, also called special damages
  • Punitive damages

Economic and non-economic damages are responsible for compensating the injured party for losses they suffer. Compensating for both tangible and intangible losses these damages cover:

  • Loss of income
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

Unlike economic and non-economic damages, punitive damages have only one purpose: to punish the party responsible for causing the injury. Because of this, punitive damages are not often awarded and usually are reserved for cases where the at-fault party knew they were behaving negligently.

In all cases, how many damages you will be able to recover compensation for and how much depends on your specific case, as every personal injury case is different
