What To Do If You've Suffered A Personal Injury
Personal injury accidents cause grief, financial stress, mental and emotional distress and can take years to recover from. Assaults, automobile accidents, unsafe products, and even poisoning all can cause personal injury and may entitle you to financial compensation.
A personal injury, which is an injury to the body or mind, can be purposely caused by another individual, such as assault, or can be caused by negligence, such as employers providing unsafe working conditions.
Should I File A Personal Injury Claim in San Diego?
You must avoid filing and litigating your own personal injury claim. We urge you to please not take your chances by taking on a personal injury case on your own. Experienced San Diego personal injury lawyers such as Bisnar Chase will have access to expert witnesses, medical professionals and other resources that help immensely in winning the claim.
Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims
If you were involved in an accident for the first time, understanding what you should do next can be stressful. Questions of "how much a lawyer will cost" or "will you be able to gain compensation" come immediately to mind. The legal team at Bisnar Chase handles the most complex cases and is here for any question that you need to be answered. The following are the most frequently asked questions injury victims have after an accident.
- Does my case qualify as a personal injury? A personal injury claim involves a person being severely injured due to someone's negligence. California law states that accident victims must be fully compensated if the injuries could have been prevented. If an insurance company is not offering you the full amount that you need to recover for your losses it is strongly suggested that you speak to a personal injury attorney in San Diego.
- How much is my personal injury claim worth? First and foremost do not rely on settlement calculators that you find online. These settlement calculators are incorrect because they are not taking every detail of your accident into account. Some of those details can include rehabilitation, vacation hours from work you have used up since your injury and if you have suffered the loss of a loved one (wrongful death), funeral expenses. The settlement amount that accident victims receive is dependent on the amount of damage that took place physically, mentally and the damage that you have faced to your property. This means that there is not a standard amount of compensation every claimant receives.
- Should I settle or file a personal injury lawsuit? The choice of whether you should settle or sue the negligent party can be daunting. You should not settle for anything less than you deserve. If you see that the offer you are handed by the insurance company is not sufficient enough to cover your expenses you can negotiate. If the insurance company does not compromise or does not want to negotiate you may seek legal representation from a San Diego personal injury law firm.
- How long will it take to settle my personal injury case? Each personal injury lawsuit is unique. The period of time it will take to settle your accident case can take months or years. The reason why it takes so long at times is due to factors such as the amount of money that is involved, the gathering of all the details of the case or the progression of your injuries. If your injuries have worsened during the trial period then the amount of compensation you should be awarded may need some altering.
- Would it beneficial for me to hire a San Diego injury attorney? If you feel as though the negligent party's insurance company is operating in bad faith, you should hire an accident attorney in San Diego. Some examples of insurance companies acting in bad faith can be denying a claim for no reason, not conducting a full investigation of the accident or using complicated language to confuse or mislead the victim. Our personal injury lawyers in San Diego have been helping clients who have suffered from extreme losses from a catastrophic accident for over 40 years. Our legal representation has sustained a 96% success rate because we won't settle for the minimum amount of compensation an insurance company offers you.
