Is It Worth Getting a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Yes, it is often worth getting a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing. Here are some reasons why hiring a personal injury lawyer can be beneficial:
- Experience and Expertise: Personal injury lawyers have specialized knowledge and experience in handling injury claims. They understand the legal complexities and can navigate the process efficiently.
- Maximizing Compensation: An attorney can assess the full extent of your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future needs, ensuring you receive fair and maximum compensation.
- Legal Representation: Having a lawyer on your side means you have a dedicated advocate who can protect your rights and interests throughout the case.
- Negotiation Skills: Personal injury lawyers are skilled negotiators who can handle insurance companies and opposing parties, ensuring you are not taken advantage of during settlement discussions.
- Legal Strategy: A lawyer can develop a strong legal strategy tailored to your case's specific circumstances, increasing the likelihood of a favorable outcome.
- Court Representation: If your case goes to trial, an attorney can represent you in court and present your case persuasively to a judge or jury.
- Peace of Mind: Knowing that a knowledgeable professional is handling your case can provide you with peace of mind during a challenging time.

According to California state law, you are able to file a personal injury lawsuit up to 2 years following the date of your injury (California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1). However, depending on your case, there may be exceptions to this law that shorten the amount of time you have. This law is known as the statute of limitations. As time goes by, it becomes more and more difficult to prove a personal injury case. Witnesses may begin to forget important details of an event and evidence may be harder to procure, so it's important to begin pursuing your case as soon as possible!
In a personal injury case, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the following types of damages: medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and punitive damages.
A damage cap is put in place to limit the amount of compensation someone may receive for certain types of injury lawsuits. In California, there are several specific damage caps in place, one of which limits the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that may be recovered in a medical malpractice case to $250,000 (California Civil Code section 3333.2).

No! In fact, we recommend that before accepting any settlements being offered (whether by the responsible party's insurance company or your own) that you consult with a personal injury lawyer. Until your case has been analyzed by a professional, you can't be sure that the settlement you're being offered is fair or will actually cover all of the expenses incurred by your accident.
When reporting your accident to your insurance company, it's important that you do not provide more information than necessary or information that you are uncertain about. We recommend you avoid providing the following information until you have discussed your case with a personal injury attorney:
- Do not admit fault: It is up to the insurance companies to determine fault.
- Do not provide opinions, only facts: Speculating can sometimes lead to confusion and damage your case.
- Do not say that you were not injured: Until you have been thoroughly examined by a medical professional, you have no way of knowing whether or not you were actually injured in the accident.
While you should always be truthful with your insurance company, you do not want to provide too much information until you have discussed your case with a professional.
