How much does a personal injury attorney cost in California?
There are several costs associated with suing someone for personal injury in Moreno Valley, so this is a difficult question to answer. For example, the expenses involved with filing a personal injury lawsuit include but are not limited to legal fees, filing fees, service fees, and discovery costs. In regards to legal fees, these vary between attorneys. Some attorneys use a sliding scale for their contingency fees while others have a set hourly rate. Further, your attorney may state that their fees are a percentage of the settlement reached (often between 33.3% and 40% of the settlement). Given this, it’s nearly impossible to assign a dollar figure to the cost of a personal injury attorney in California. Instead, we recommend asking your attorney about their fees during your initial consultation. Once they have assessed your specific situation, they should be able to offer an accurate estimate. We’d also like to take this opportunity to note that all Moreno Valley personal injury attorneys at AAESQ Law operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay a dime unless we win your case. No exceptions.
What is the average personal injury settlement in California?
Unfortunately, this question is nearly impossible to answer given all the types of accidents that personal injury law entails. As personal injury cases range from car accidents and truck accidents to wrongful deaths, product liability issues, and construction site accidents, it’s extremely difficult to assign a dollar figure to the average personal injury settlement in California. However, we will say that few too many people realize how lucrative personal injury cases can be. Any experienced attorney knows that personal injury law was designed to make the victim feel “whole” again; to help them return to the life they had before the accident. That is why there are all kinds of damages that you and your attorney can seek to recover in a personal injury case. Plus, there is no limit to the number of damages that can be claimed. With a Moreno Valley personal injury attorney from AAESQ Law by your side, they will aim to recover all damages for past, present, and future costs relating to your accident. For example, a claimant may receive compensation for medical expenses (such as prescription medications, doctor’s visits, rehabilitation/physical therapy, emergency room bills, diagnostic tests, surgeries, or caretaking) or lost wages, loss of profits, or lost career opportunities, if you were forced to miss work owing to your recovery. Further, the state of California considers emotional harm a valid form of injury, so your attorney may also seek damages relating to emotional injury like mental anguish, loss of enjoyment, or loss of companionship. Ultimately, there are all kinds of damages that claimants in Moreno Valley can seek to recover in their personal injury case. Given this, it’s possible to receive a significant payout when you file a personal injury claim.
Can I represent myself in a personal injury case?
Technically, yes, every person has the right to represent themselves in any kind of legal matter, and that includes personal injury cases. However, just because you’re able to do so doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best idea. There are a number of reasons why claimants may wish to hire a Moreno Valley personal injury attorney to represent them rather than representing themselves. First and foremost, unless you have a strong legal background, an experienced attorney like those at AAESQ Law likely has a better understanding of California state law. California law is complex and navigating it can be overwhelming. Meanwhile, a personal injury attorney understands the rules of civil procedure and evidence, they know the deadlines that must be met for your claim to be valid, and they have experience calculating damages and negotiating with at-fault parties and/or insurance providers. Further, as mentioned above, personal injury attorneys understand the intention of personal injury law and will seek to recover more damages than you likely ever thought possible. Thus, hiring a personal injury attorney gives you the greatest chances of your claim being successful.
