Michael represented me when another firm felt they were unable. I was hit by a car while driving my motorcycle. The police report was not helpful in my case. Michael pursued against the odds and found the truth I needed to be successful in winning my case. His diligence and hard work is why I will be proud to refer him to my friends and family.

In California, you can still recover damages even if you are partly at fault for an accident. However, your compensation may be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault, you would only be eligible to receive 80% of the total damages awarded.

Personal injury attorneys will be able to investigate the accident and help determine who is really at fault.

You might be eligible for both economic and non-economic damages in a personal injury claim. Economic damages are those that have an identifiable price attached to them, such as medical expenses, missed income, and property damage. Non-economic damages are more subjective, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.

The statute of limitations for most personal injury lawsuits in California is two years from the date of the accident. This means that you have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you do not file within this time frame, you will likely be barred from doing so.

In California, comparative fault is a doctrine that allows plaintiffs to recover damages even if they are partially at fault for the accident. Under this doctrine, the court will determine the percentage of fault for each party and then award damages accordingly.

If the other party does not have insurance, you may still be able to recover damages through your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. You should also contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your options.

A personal injury lawsuit is a civil suit brought by an injured person against the person or entity responsible for their injuries. The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to seek financial compensation for the injuries suffered.

Personal injury law is a branch of civil law that allows individuals who have been injured to seek compensation for their injuries. This includes physical, emotional, and financial damages.

Most common accidents that are covered under personal injury law include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, boat accidents, truck accidents, Traumatic Brain Injury, whiplash injury, and medical malpractice. However, any type of accident that results in an injury may be covered.

It is not required that you hire an attorney after being injured in an accident, but it is recommended. An attorney will be able to help you navigate the legal system and ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.

If you are injured in an accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Once you have received treatment, you can then start gathering evidence and building your case. An experienced attorney will be able to help you with this process.

There is no definitive answer to this question since each scenario is unique. Some personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency basis, which means they are paid only if you win your case. Others charge an hourly rate. You will need to discuss payment options with your attorney before hiring them.

Even if the individual who harmed you does not have insurance, you may be able to obtain compensation. You can file a claim with your own insurance company or sue the at-fault driver directly. An experienced attorney will be able to advise you on the best course of action.
