What to expect moving forward with a personal injury case?
When moving forward with a personal injury case in Alhambra, you can expect the process to be as follows. First, there will be an initial consultation where you can ask questions and provide the details of your case to the attorney. Then, there will be an independent investigation into the accident, where the attorney will gather as much evidence and information as possible relating to your case. During this part of the process, your attorney may interview eyewitnesses, consult with medical experts, speak with law enforcement officers, review medical or police reports, and/or analyze photograph or video evidence of the accident. The next step is the negotiations, where your attorney will draft a legal argument on your behalf and send it to the insurance company/at-fault party in the hopes of reaching a beneficial settlement. Should a settlement not be reached, the final step would be litigation, meaning your case would be taken to court and your personal injury attorney would continue to vehemently represent you and your rights.
When should a personal injury attorney be used?
If you’ve been seriously injured, physically or emotionally, following an accident, then hiring an attorney to help you navigate your personal injury case is the best decision you can make. If you walked away from an accident without injury or with minor injuries that resolved themselves after a couple of doctor’s visits, then an attorney may not be necessary. If, however, you suffered significant injuries following an accident - for example, you were taken to the emergency room, suffered a head injury or concussion, are struggling with neck or back pain because of the accident, or have yet to fully recover after weeks or months of rest, then we highly recommend hiring an Alhambra personal injury attorney to help with your case.
Should I hire an attorney for my personal injury case?
In most cases, the answer to this question is yes. The state of California has one of the most complex legal systems in the country, and as such, it can be incredibly difficult for the average person to navigate. Having a personal injury attorney by your side will prevent you from being taken advantage of, and instead ensure you are awarded the greatest amount of money possible. Without a personal injury attorney representing you, it would mean that you alone are up against the at-fault party’s insurance company, which has an entire team of attorneys behind them. Their job? To ensure you receive the smallest payout possible. As you can see, the odds are stacked against you from the beginning. While this is frustrating, it’s reality. Thus, hiring a personal injury attorney will help level the playing field, giving you the greatest chance of winning your case and receiving the money you rightfully deserve. Plus, a personal injury attorney typically works with a team of medical experts, and together, they can help assess the full extent of your injury, as well as the long-term effects, allowing you to demand more money from the insurance company. At the end of the day, hiring an Alhambra attorney for your personal injury case is a decision you won’t regret.
How long do I have to file a claim?
According to the California Civil Code of Procedure 335.1, injured parties have up to two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. This timeframe is extended to three years if property damage was involved, such as your vehicle being damaged in a car accident. There is one other exception to the two-year rule, which is if you're suing the government of California for personal injury. For example, if you were in a car accident involving a government vehicle, then you have just six months to file a claim and that claim must be filed directly with the government agency. Given the complexity of California state law, especially as it pertains to personal injury cases, we recommend contacting a personal injury attorney in Alhambra as soon as possible following the accident.
What damages are available in a personal injury case?
Personal injury cases cover a wide range of circumstances. Therefore, there are several types of damages injured parties can claim in a personal injury case. If you have been the victim of any of the following, then filing a personal injury claim may be the right decision for you: motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, car accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, elder abuse, wrongful deaths. Beyond the types of damages you can sue for, there are also several types of compensation your Alhambra personal injury attorney may seek on your behalf. Your attorney may help you recover damages relating to lost profits, lost wages, medical expenses, potential expenses (such as more health care expenses or therapy), and pain and suffering (both physical and emotional). At the end of the day, the best way to receive the compensation you deserve is by working alongside an experienced personal injury attorney.
