Crash Your Car in Sherman Oaks? Call to See How Much Your Case Is Worth!
Motor vehicle accidents are a specialty area that should be handled by an experienced car accident attorney. We know the importance of hiring the most knowledgeable authorities in their field – including accident reconstruction experts, biomechanical engineers, forensic pathologists and medical experts who can pinpoint liability and help us build the most convincing claim for damages. With a view toward securing your financial stability and future, we work relentlessly to recoup damages for:
- Past and future medical costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of expected earnings
- Property damage repairs
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Prior case results are an important factor to consider when selecting a lawyer to represent your injury claim. While past car accident settlements and verdicts do no predict future outcomes, they do speak to the skill and experience of the law firm.
These are some key factors that will affect the potential value of your car accident case:
- Extent of property damage
- If liability is contested
- Severity of your injuries
- Actual losses relating to medical bills, rehabilitation and future care needs
- Intangible losses such as emotional distress, permanent disfigurement
Ultimately, the value of your claim will depend on the consequences of your injury. Plaintiffs who suffered spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis are likely to collect more than someone who broke their wrist.
Who Can I Sue If I am Injured?
In order to prevail in a personal injury claim, negligence must be established. When your injuries are caused because of the reckless actions or inaction of another party, it’s possible to sue for damages. California Civil Code provides that “Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person.”
A texting driver who slams into your car could be held liable for damages. A grocery store owner who fails to clean up a spill can be sued if a patron slips and falls. A building contractor may be legally responsible for failing to provide a safe work environment.
During a comprehensive case evaluation and investigation, our lawyers will identify all liable parties and discuss the soundest strategies for obtaining a positive outcome.
Statute of Limitations in California for Personal Injury Lawsuits?
California limits the amount of time you can file a action to two years from the date the incident took place. Because of these time constraints, you are encouraged to retain legal counsel as soon as possible, so your claim is filed within the statute of limitations. California lawsuits involving government entities or agents – state, county or federal — must be filed within six months.
