A car accident can change someone’s life in an instant. What’s more, some head injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents are even fatal or will end up leaving the person with limited cerebral function, which is especially devastating for friends and loved ones who are part of the event. Some of these are caused by commercial vehicles, drunk drivers, or drivers who aren’t paying attention to the road. What’s more, a head injury alters how a victim like yourself is able to enjoy life and to make decisions that are in your best interest. A traffic crash changes how you see the world and can limit other life functions. As San Diego head injury attorneys, we understand that this time of confusion and pain is damaging your health and mental state and hurting your family. It’s likely that you and your family will want someone to pay for the effects on your life. This is common to all accident victims who weren’t expecting to have their lives forever altered, especially because the event occurred through no fault of their own. This is a time when legal and financial answers are hard to find, and, sometimes, the only help victims get is from qualified San Diego head injury lawyers.
Don’t Get Left Behind
As a head injury victim, you should not feel alone. There is the initial period of recovery in which you are still in the hospital fighting for your life. Then, there comes the period when you are resting at home and attending nearly constant doctor appointments and therapy sessions. The medical bills are piling up, and you aren’t sure how you will pay them. You are missing time from work, and your family is worried how you will continue to pay for their housing and food. We understand that this period is frustrating. The healing process takes time. Fortunately, California state law provides two years for you to file a lawsuit against the defendants in a personal injury case. This gives you some time to choose the best course of action and to get well. For many victims, however, the maximum medical recovery will not be complete. They will have permanent effects from the accident. During this stressful time, take time to consult an attorney and determine your rights as a victim.
What We Can Do
We are experienced personal injury attorneys licensed to practice law in the state of California. We advise on victims’ rights and aggressively seek compensation for our clients through the civil courts. We have extensive trial experience, which is what people with serious injuries need to recover anything from the big bad insurance companies. If you consult us, we will gladly help you research the defendants in the case and determine if there are any applicable insurance policies and/or financial assets from which you might attempt to recover damages. As lawyers, we are not able to promise you any results.
How Personal Injury Cases Work
Getting injured in a traffic accident can change your life. It can take years to recover any damages for medical bills, lost wages, future expenses, and pain and suffering. Making a claim for a head injury will place the burden on you (and your legal representation) to show how your injuries resulted from the defendant’s negligence. Otherwise, the defendant and his or her insurance carrier can totally escape any kind of liability for the event. You want to seek damages because this accident was not your fault. Your family should not have to suffer years of financial difficulty because the other party caused a preventable accident. After you file a lawsuit against the defendants, then you must present convincing evidence to a jury that they were negligent. Many cases will end up settling out of court, which helps to contain legal costs.
How We Get Paid
If you don’t have money to hire a personal injury lawyer, don’t despair. We work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we pursue a claim for your serious, life-threatening injuries against the defendants at no cost to you. If we’re able to attain a recovery on your behalf through an insurance company settlement or a jury verdict, we then take a percentage of that award. We also deduct our reasonable legal expenses, which could include things such as court filing fees and paying for expert witnesses to testify at the trial. Because you were not the at-fault driver or vehicle owner, you are not at fault in the accident. It’s important to contact a San Diego head injury lawyer as soon as possible. You want to discover your legal rights and options because you suffered in a preventable accident. This head injury has changed your life, and the defendants must pay. We are glad to provide a free consultation and help you understand the legal process that must take place before we attempt recovering any damages for head injuries on your behalf.
