The Elements of a Personal Injury Claim / Lawsuit
Wondering if your case qualifies you to take legal action? When you call us to discuss what happened to you, we can evaluate your case based on a set of criteria. A successful injury claim should have all the following elements:
- The Defendant - the person or person(s) responsible for the accident
- Negligence or Liability – the defendant's act or an omitted action
- Incident / Accident – the act or omitted action resulted in a hazard or accident
- Resulting Injuries – the hazard or accident led to actual and measurable injuries
Injury claims can even be filed in cases of joint/shared liability, so long as the plaintiff was not more than 50 percent responsible for the incident.
Riverside Car Accident Lawyer
One of the most common types of case that we handle is car accidents. In 2011, the state of California saw 2,835 traffic deaths and 225,602 traffic injuries.
This statistic is staggering and tragic, but even more tragic is knowing that most of these accidents could have been avoided. Driver inattention, failure to yield, alcohol impairment and recklessness are all common causes of auto accidents in the state of California. If you were injured in a car accident, we can help you fight for maximum compensation.
Far too often, insurance companies short-change claimants and even sometimes deny legitimate auto insurance claims. If you were in an accident, but the insurance company isn't offering you the money you think you deserve, is not communicating with you, is wrongfully placing you at-fault for the accident or denied your claim, contact us to discuss legal representation.
We also handle other motor vehicle accident cases such as truck accidents and motorcycle accidents.
Our Riverside personal injury law firm also handles the following types of injury cases for clients:
What can I recover?
One of questions we get asked most frequently is "how much is my case worth?" and our answer is always the same – it depends. The overall value of a claim is dependent on a number of factors, such as:
- Percentage of fault
- Estimate of property damage
- Total cost of present and future medical bills
- Emotional pain and suffering compensation
Contact a Riverside personal injury attorney at our firm today and we will be able to give you a more exact estimate of how much you might be able to recover. Ultimately, our goal is your success and we will do whatever it takes to make sure our clients get the results they set out to achieve.
