Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Cases
Stockton Personal Injury Lawyer
How do I know if I have the right to make a claim for damages?
There are certain factors that make it possible to file a lawsuit related to a personal injury
claim. The injury must have resulted from some type of negligence committed by another party, intentional wrongdoing or
from strict liability. This could include many types of cases, including incidents such as car accidents, medical malpractice
cases, workplace injuries, animal attacks or any other injury case in which another individual failed to protect you
from injury. Any such case requires legal representation from a Stockton personal injury lawyer
to assist you in the complex matter of seeking damages through legal channels.
How much should a claim be worth in a personal injury case?
It should be possible to determine the amount of the claim with a fast review of the circumstances of your case. The
personal injury lawyer from Accident Lawyers will analyze the situation and advise you what you should expect and the length
of time you it may take to collect the settlement, or whether it is likely that your case may have to go to court
for a judgment.
How long do I have to make a claim for damages?
California law allows 2 years in which to file a personal injury claim. You should act quickly however, as the evidence
becomes more difficult to find as time passes.
Why do I need a lawyer?
When an accident or other incident results in an injury, the insurance company for the responsible party often pays the
claim. They are not representing you, the victim – they have the best interests of the client to protect, as well as
the profit for the insurance company. This results in many cases in efforts to reduce the claim amount, or even to deny
certain valid claims. When you have legal representation from Accident Lawyers you know your interests will be protected.
