What attorneys can do for you immediately after you’re injured
There is much work to be done in the aftermath of an accident. It can be a lot for one person to handle. A personal injury lawyer is a great asset to have during the initial investigation, given the disorienting nature of sudden accident and injury.
- We investigate. We’ll come out, take a look at the scene with our team of accident investigators, and leave no stone unturned. We help find eyewitnesses who can serve valuable testimony later and verify the accuracy of your story. We’ll take professional grade photographs to serve as additional evidence if you take your case before a judge and jury. We conduct depositions and subpoena documents from the defendants the average individual could never get ahold of, and this becomes the linchpin of many a successful case.
- We make medical referrals. If you’re injured severely at the scene, you might go to the nearest hospital right away. If your injuries appear latently or you are able to go home first, you can call your attorney to ask for a referral to the best local medical facilities, surgeons, and care providers for your particular injuries.
- We strengthen the evidence. We’ll make sure you attend regular follow-up appointments that chart the progress of your injuries, and we’ll check to see that the police report is accurate in every way and consistent with the evidence.
Determining how much a personal injury is worth
It can be difficult to know how much money your past, present, and future injuries are worth. A personal injury attorney advocates for maximum compensation in times of great uncertainty. While insurance companies operate under the guise that they’re here to protect you from financial ruins after an accident, they’re also in the business of making a profit, so they often try to settle as quickly as possible – for less than accident victims deserve.
Exploring your legal options with a legal advocate
At first, you may not be sure whether or not you want to file a lawsuit – and that’s okay. There are many legal options we can explore with you, from pressing criminal charges and sending a demand letter, to out-of-court settlement talks and insurance payouts. We’ll give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.
Don’t let financial concerns hold you back from pursuing justice
If you do want to pursue civil charges, we’ll make sure all your court and filing fees are covered – without asking for anything in return. As a general rule, personal injury attorneys only get paid when their clients get paid through a successful settlement or jury award. When you were hurt through little to no fault of your own, liable third parties should be held accountable.
California statute of limitations for personal injury compensation
California’s Statute of Limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years. No matter how valid your claim may be, if you wait too long, you’ll miss your opportunity to receive compensation that will guarantee you receive excellent medical care and additional income in case you can’t work in the years to come.
