Quality Representation for Your Personal Injury Concerns
The fact that mishaps are fairly commonplace does not detract from the
pain and confusion that can result when an accident or injury happens
to you or a loved one. If you decide to take steps toward protecting your
legal rights after an accident or injury, you may have a number of general
questions about your potential “personal injury” case.
What is a Personal Injury Case?
Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when a person suffers
harm from an accident or injury, and another person or entity is legally
responsible for that harm. The law defines ‘personal injury’
as a physical, mental or emotional injury or harm which is the result
of negligence on the behalf of another individual, business or other entity.
A formal personal injury case typically starts when a private individual
(the "plaintiff") files a civil "complaint" against
another person, business, corporation, or government agency (the "defendant"),
alleging that they acted carelessly or irresponsibly in connection with
an accident or injury that caused harm. This action is known as "filing
a lawsuit." Many disputes are resolved through informal settlement
before any lawsuit is filed.
Whenever possible, disputes over fault for an accident or injury are resolved
through informal early settlement, usually among those personally involved
in the dispute, their insurers, and attorneys representing both sides.
A settlement commonly takes the form of negotiation, followed by a written
agreement in which both sides forgo any further action (such as a lawsuit),
choosing instead to resolve the matter through payment of an agreeable
amount of money. The "middle ground" between a lawsuit and an
informal settlement is alternative dispute resolution procedures like
mediation and arbitration.
Do you have a personal injury Case?
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, suffered a slip and fall
injury, or have been injured by a defective drug or product, you may be
entitled to compensation. It can sometimes be difficult to determine if
you have a case, even if you’re sure someone else is at fault for
your injuries. We will help you better understand personal injury law
and the various factors that go into evaluating a personal injury case.
Auto Accident and Slip and Fall Cases
Two of the most common type of personal injury cases are auto accident
and slip and fall cases. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident,
you may have an auto accident case claim and may be entitled to compensation.
Alternatively, if you’ve been injured because of a slip and fall
incident on the property of another person or business, you may be entitled
to compensation under the law.
How to Successfully Prepare a Personal Injury Claim
When suffering from a personal injury, you need to understand how to effectively
proceed following the accident to receive the compensation you deserve.
Providing evidence of who or what caused your injuries is crucial in winning
a personal injury claim, and understanding how to preserve different types
of accident evidence is key.
Learn and understand the concept of negligence and how it pertains to your
personal injury case. Regardless of what kind of personal injury you’ve
suffered, there must be proof or evidence to support the claim in order
for a lawsuit to succeed. Regarding legal liability: If you know you’re
in the right and have the evidence to support your claim, then there will
be no doubt of negligence in the circumstances that resulted in your personal
injury. On the other hand, if you’re unsure about the evidence of
negligence, one of our personal injury lawyers can assess your case.
Understand the compensation you could receive from your personal injury
case. Under the law in California, you are entitled to recover for your
physical injuries related to the accident. You are also entitled to recover
for your lost wages or lost profits related to the accident assuming they
are applicable. If you have suffered a physical injury, you may also be
able to recover for emotional distress or mental pain and suffering. Not
all injuries are easily noticeable or contain a dollar value, and we can
help you recover for these real injuries.
Personal Injury Settlement Negotiation
Understand the factors of settling your personal injury case and how to
properly negotiate. Settling and negotiating your personal injury lawsuit
can involve many steps, however, understanding how to effectively go through
the process can help you win your case. Resolving a personal injury case
out of court or in a trial contains different compensation and circumstances.
We will evaluate the settlement value of your case and help you get top
dollar for your case.
