Sudden injury is one of the most devastating occurrences in life, but it doesn’t have to be a financial calamity. Filing a personal injury lawsuit is one of the best ways to afford the best possible care and stay afloat financially during your recovery. It costs you nothing to contact Montrose personal injury lawyers at the Ellis Injury Law Firm All our fees come out of the settlements and jury awards we win on our clients’ behalf.
What happened to you?
The immediate aftermath of a car accident, dog attack, slip-and-fall, or other adverse event can be a confusing time. How did the accident occur? Were you responsible for what happened to you, or was someone else? Could it have been prevented? The investigative team at Ellis Injury Law is second-to-none. We find out what factors led to the incident, who is liable, and how to mitigate future harm. Having these answers will be an important step in your recovery. We have a look at the accident scene, track down eyewitnesses who can corroborate your story, seek expert opinions, and work to construct a winning legal argument.
How much money are personal injury lawsuits worth?
Accident victims can receive compensation for:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Loss of past, present, and future income
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Disability-related devices and home modifications
- Punitive damages for gross negligence or recklessness
- Wrongful death, funeral, and burial expenses for family members
Even if an accident is determined to be partially your fault, you may still be entitled to compensation under California law. You will need to act quickly, as the deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit is just two years from the date of the accident in California. There are some exceptions to the statute of limitations, but it’s best to work with an attorney from the very start.
