When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?
You should reach out to a Thousand Oaks personal injury lawyer if you were injured because of someone else’s negligence. For example, if you were involved in a car accident that left you with even “minor” injuries, getting in touch with a lawyer is never a bad idea. The adjusters from the other party’s insurance company will do everything in their power to ensure they payout as little as possible. They will attempt to make it look like your injuries aren’t as serious as they actually are or try to pin the blame on you. All the while you are recovering from your injuries.
If you hire a personal injury lawyer, they will bring their experience to the table and make sure you get the fair amount of compensation you deserve. The lawyer will do most of the heavy lifting so you can focus on getting better.
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). To learn more about California personal injury damage caps, contact our Thousand Oaks personal injury attorney today!
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.
