DO I HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
Not every accident victim knows right away if they have a valid personal injury claim. Even if you have a strong case, there might be some flaws in your claim that the other party could use to lower your compensation. Most personal injury claims are based on negligence. You may have a solid negligence claim if all of these are true:
The Defendant Had a Duty of Care Toward You
To win a negligence claim, you have to prove that the defendant had a duty of care toward you. For example, a driver has a duty of care to operate their motor vehicle in a safe and responsible manner to avoid injuring others.
The Defendant Failed to Meet the Duty of Care
Were you hit by a drunk or distracted driver? These situations could be considered a failure to meet the duty of care, which means not acting as a reasonable person would in the same circumstances.
You Suffered Damages Because of the Breach
The main goal of a personal injury claim is to recover financial compensation. Claimants may be able to get compensatory damages, which include economic and non-economic losses. If you didn't suffer any damages – like an injury or loss – you wouldn't have a valid personal injury claim.
The Incident Happened Within the Last Two Years
In California, the standard time limit for personal injury lawsuits is two years. There are some exceptions to this rule, but generally, you have to take legal action within two years from the date of the accident.
You Haven't Made Any Mistakes That Would Weaken Your Case
Some of the more common mistakes that could damage your chances of building a strong personal injury claim include:
- Posting on social media about your car accident, your injuries, or your case;
- Delaying medical care;
- Not following your doctor's orders; and
- Giving the insurance adjuster a recorded statement.
OUR CLIENTS TRUST US AND RECOMMEND US. SEE WHY:
I'm so glad I found Golden State Accident Lawyers after my car accident. At first, I didn't think it was a big deal. I had headaches here and there but it didn't seem like I was badly hurt. I was close to settling with my insurance but thank goodness something else came up which delayed me in signing the documents. At that time, headaches, bad dreams and other symptoms started to appear. I didn't know what was happening to me. I went to the doctor and got referred to a mental health professional. Long story short, I was diagnosed with PTSD which was attributed to the accident and that changed everything for me. Had I signed with the insurance company, I would have not been paid as much to cover my treatment. Luckily I found a wonderful attorney at Golden State Accident Lawyers who helped me fight for a better settlement and won. I am sincerely grateful for these lawyers and highly recommend them.
