Car Accident in San Bernardino? Don’t Wait to Call Our Firm!
There were more than 7,000 injuries and fatalities caused by accidents last year in our local area alone. That’s almost 19 injuries or fatalities every day. If you were harmed in a serious motor vehicle accident, there is so much at stake. From whiplash and broken bones, to more permanent injuries, victims are not equipped to handle legal challenges or insurance adjustors on their own.
Our car accident attorneys work closely with clients to develop a thorough understanding of the full impact of your injuries, pain and emotional suffering. We collaborate with medical professionals and crash reconstructionists, along with industry experts we can call on for expert testimony about the present and long-term medical needs of our clients.
Ellis Law has championed the rights of clients injured by negligent motorists, as well as those harmed by defective vehicle parts. When another party’s misconduct or poor decisions cause serious injury or death, you need an aggressive advocate who specializes in car accident litigation. For a free consultation about your car accident case, you can reach Ellis Law 24/7.
How Much Money Will My Personal Injury Case Settle For?
Ellis Law has the knowledge and skills to help clients secure maximum compensation for their losses. Even if you feel you were partly to blame for the accident, you may still be eligible for monetary damages. One of the first and most pressing questions posed by clients is “how much is my case worth?” Any attorney who estimates the value of your settlement on the first meeting is being disingenuous. Every claim is unique, and many variables will affect the amount of damages awarded in a settlement or verdict.
Some factors that will influence your payout:
- The type and severity of injury suffered
- Your age at the time of the accident
- The amount of your past and future medical bills
- Whether you suffered permanent injury, disability or disfigurement
- Whether you will be able to resume work and earn income
- Extent the injury has negatively impacted the quality and enjoyment of life
Personal injury litigation may seek compensation for:
- Medical treatment
- Expenses related to injury other than medical bills
- Lost wages
- Consortium matters (loss of services of family of injured or deceased party, such as income, child care, companionship, lifestyle that family would have received if not for the injury)
- Cost of remodeling a home to accommodate disability
- Compensation for pain, suffering, and emotional distress
- Damage to reputation
- Punitive damages
- Funeral expenses
Do I Still Have Time to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in California?
In California, the statutes of limitation allow plaintiffs up to two years to pursue legal action and bring a claim for damages. The clock starts ticking on the date of the injury event. This time limit may be shorter if the defendant includes a state, county or federal government entity. Once the statute expires, California plaintiffs may no longer sue, thus losing their right to seek reparations.
How Long Will It Take for My Case to Resolve?
Most of these cases, including those involving accidents, settle before going to trial. The time it takes to negotiate a fair settlement will hinge on three major factors: if liability is contested, if both parties agree on the damage amount, and if multiple defendants are listed.
We always advise clients to be as patient as possible, as a premature insurance settlement will not account for the full consequences of your injuries and losses. Once clients are fully recovered, medically stable, and all financial losses tallied, you’re in a better position to enter final settlement talks, or prime the case for trial. Whether your injury claim takes two months or two years to successfully resolve, the attorneys of Ellis Law will be fighting every step of the way for just compensation.
Time and again, we have prevailed in complex injury claims, helping clients on their way to a full recovery. We make sure our clients are well-informed on all aspects of their case, and have the talent and drive to face-off against insurance companies and corporate giants. Let us protect your rights, call our attorneys today.
