Frequently Asked Questions
Irvine Personal Injury Lawyer
How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?
Claims for personal injuries are based on the fact that your injury or illness was caused by the negligence of another. If your injury came about due to the intentional actions of someone else, this can also be cause for a personal injury claim. Many times individuals don't know that they can be compensated for their injuries or that they even have a valid claim. At the Accident Lawyers we can review your individual situation, help you to understand the personal injury claim process and go over what can be done to assist you.
What is compensation in a personal injury case?
Compensation is an appropriate payment of money to an individual to make up for the consequences of the injury they have suffered. Commonly, compensation is paid to take care of current and future medical expenses brought about by your injury. If you cannot earn wages, either in the short or long term, these lost wages may be compensated as well. In certain instances, damages can be awarded for your emotional trauma. If your injury came about due to another's malice or intentional action, damages may be awarded for this as well.
Why do I need an attorney to work on my case?
Individuals and companies that are liable for your injury are not going to freely give you the full amount that you need or may be owed. Insurance companies in particular have adjusters and attorneys who are trained in tactics designed to delay or greatly reduce any eventual settlement to you. The other side will have trained professionals working against you; an experienced Irvine personal injury attorney can help even up the odds.
How much compensation will I be able to get?
Compensation is based on how much current and future medical care and treatments will cost and other factors. The extent and seriousness of your injury will play a part in the compensation you receive. If your injury was caused on purpose or with malice, this can affect the amount of compensation in your case. Amounts awarded in cases similar to yours can be one determining factor in personal injury compensation. In our firm, we always strive to recover the maximum compensation on your behalf.
