How Long Does It Take To Settle A Personal Injury Case?The length of proceedings for a case is highly dependent on the details of the accident. Some complex cases with large settlements can take much longer than more straightforward claims. The majority of cases can be settled through negotiation, but some require taking the case to trial, which can extend the time needed for resolution. Your lawyer should keep you up to date on the status of your case and the expected timeline for a settlement.
Should I See Doctor After A Accident?It is always strongly recommended to have a prompt medical evaluation after any accident, even if you feel uninjured or believe you only have minor injuries. The reason for this is twofold. First, it ensures your health and safety. Some life-threatening injuries, such as brain hemorrhaging or internal bleeding, may not cause immediate symptoms but can be discovered through an examination. Second, a timely exam protects your legal rights. Having a record of your injuries that clearly links them to your accident is critical to any personal injury case.
How Do I Know If I Have A Case?You do not need to make this decision on your own. Contact an attorney and set up a free consultation to go over your situation in detail. The attorney will be able to tell you whom you can sue and what you can expect to recover, based on the facts of the accident and the laws in your state. Essentially, in most situations, you will have a case if someone acted carelessly under the circumstances and caused your injuries. Applying this standard is more complicated than it sounds, however, which is why it is important to consult an attorney
What Is A Personal Injury Claim?A personal injury claim is a legal case where an individual seeks compensation for injuries or damages caused by the negligence or wrongful actions of another party. It typically covers various accidents, such as car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, or product liability incidents
Do I Have A Case If I Do Not Feel Hurt?You may still have a case even if you do not feel hurt at the scene. The biological response to a traumatic situation like an accident sends a rush of adrenaline through the body, which can temporarily reduce sensations of pain. You may start feeling significant pain or developing other symptoms later. It is wise to consult a doctor even if you do not feel immediate, excruciating pain, since some of the most serious conditions emerge over time.
How Much Does Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney Cost?Most personal injury attorneys in California work on a contingency fee basis. This means they only receive payment if they successfully recover compensation for you. The attorney's fee is typically a percentage of the final settlement or court award. It's crucial to discuss the fee structure during your initial consultation.
Can I Still Pursue A Personal Injury Claim If I Was Partially At Fault For The Accident?Yes, you can. California operates under pure comparative negligence laws, which allow individuals to seek compensation even if they share some degree of fault. However, your compensation will be reduced proportionally based on your assigned level of fault.
HOW DO CALIFORNIA’S COMPARATIVE NEGLIGENCE LAWS IMPACT YOUR ABILITY TO FILE A CLAIM?
California operates under pure comparative negligence laws. Under these laws, anyone involved in an accident that is not 100% responsible can seek compensation from the other parties for their losses. However, the victim’s compensation is reduced by the amount of fault assigned to them. For example, a person with $100,000 worth of damages that is 80% at fault for an accident would only be eligible to collect $20,000 from the other party.
The insurance company will often try to use comparative negligence laws in their favor by claiming the victim shares more fault in the accident, which reduces the amount the insurance carriers have to pay for medical care and other damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you fight back against these claims and collect the damages you are entitled to.
