Steps to take if you are injured
If you or someone you love suffers physical injury due to another party’s wrongful conduct or negligence, there are some important steps that can protect valuable evidence in the event that legal action is warranted. We always suggest taking the following actions:
- Take photos and/or video of where the accident took place and contributing factors
- Collect the names and contact information of eyewitnesses
- Report the accident to the authorities and police
- Visit a doctor as soon as possible and document all injuries
- Do not provide a recorded statement or sign a release form for insurance without legal counsel
- Consult with experienced personal injury lawyers in North Hills
Trying to navigate a personal injury case by yourself is not advisable. Claimants who do not have the benefit of competent legal counsel will not have the skillset or resources to fight for fair compensation. Retaining talented attorneys at Ellis Law will not only put your mind at ease, it won’t cost you anything since we operate on a contingency basis.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?
Typically, under California Code for Civil Procedure, injured parties have two years, starting from the date of the accident, to bring a civil suit for legal reparations. In some instances, however, this time varies and you may have even less time. It’s best to speak with a personal injury attorney as quickly as possible, while memories are still fresh, evidence is more readily available, and to assess how much time your specific case may have.
With nearly three decades of experience winning personal injury claims in California, Ellis Law is focused on achieving the best possible result for each client.
