Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most common types of personal injury cases that you work with?
Auto accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, animal bites, slip-and-falls, and equipment malfunction are some of the most common types of personal injury cases that are taken to court.
In order to win a case, you have to prove that the injury you suffered was due to the negligence of another party (an individual, such as a dog owner, or a company).
What is negligence?
When a person or company does not act in a responsible way to prevent injuries, it is known as negligence. We are experienced in determining whether there has been negligence involved in your accident or injury. Please contact us for a free consultation so we can go over the details of your situation and let you know whether you have a case or not.
How much is it to meet with an attorney before deciding to file a lawsuit?
It is free. We offer a free initial consultation for your convenience.
Can I be reimbursed for medical bills that occurred due to the accident?
If the judgment is ruled in your favor, then yes, you can receive reimbursement for medical bills. You can also receive compensation for other damages, which may include compensation for loss of employment or lost days at work as a result of the accident or injury, reimbursement of the monetary value of lost property (such as a car), and compensation for pain and suffering.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
The statute of limitations defines how long a person has to file a lawsuit in a personal injury case. The state of California allows you to file a suit before the two-year anniversary of the accident or injury. If you allow two full years to pass without filing a suit, you will have forever waived your right to sue.
Can you help me file a lawsuit due to a dog bite?
Yes. If the injury occurred while you were working, you can file a personal injury claim against the dog owner and a workers’ compensation claim. If you were not working when the injury occurred, you will be seeking compensation through the at-fault party’s renter’s or homeowner’s insurance. If the dog bite came from a pet that is a wild animal (such as a hybrid wolf), the state of California allows you to file for damages whether you were negligent or the dog owner was, because the law is strict on owners of wild and semi-wild animals.
