What are some of the damages I could receive in a successful injury claim?
You could receive a settlement that pays for your injury-related medical expenses, physical therapy costs, lost wages, permanent disability, pain, suffering, mental anguish, and lost life enjoyment.
Is there a time limit for personal injury actions in California?
The state of California grants injury victims up to two years from the date of the accident to bring a claim. That doesn’t mean you should wait that long. It’s advisable to file a claim as soon as possible so that witnesses and evidence will be most effective.
Can I file a claim on behalf of a minor?
Yes, you can file a claim for an injured minor. If you are a parent or guardian, you can file a claim on their behalf. They can receive a settlement for what they suffered.
What if I can’t afford to pay a lawyer?
Many people can’t afford to pay for an attorney’s services up front. We provide contingency fee arrangements for people who are in that position. Your attorney’s legal help would be paid out of your settlement amount.
