Proving Negligence in Injury Claims
Our team of dedicated attorneys have the knowledge and skill necessary to win cases. We know what it takes to prove that our clients have endured undue suffering and deserve to be compensated for their damages. In most personal injury claims, the governing concept is known as negligence. This is based on the notion that every human has a responsibility to take any and all reasonable measures to avoid causing harm to others.
When someone violates this notion and acts in a manner that is reckless or careless and disregards the safety of those around them, this is considered negligence. If such actions resulted in an accident that caused injury, he or she is typically responsible for any damages that were caused. Thus to prove a personal injury claim, your lawyer has to show evidence that the defendant’s negligent actions directly or proximately caused your injur
“How much is my claim worth?”
When you bring your case to our firm, we will conduct thorough and extensive investigations into the circumstances of your incident and into the scope and severity of your damages in order to fight for every dollar that you deserve.
The following factors can affect the amount of compensation you are entitled to:
Furthermore, it is important to note that a victim’s own actions leading up to an accident can affect the amount of compensation that you can receive. California’s negligence laws allows for the defense of modified comparative fault. This means that a plaintiff can only recover monetary damages in amounting to the total damages minus the percentage of their own liability.That is to say that if a plaintiff is determined to have contributed to 25% of the fault for the accident, he or she can only recover 75% of the total damages. Additionally, under California laws, plaintiffs determined to be more than 50% at fault cannot recover damages at all.
You Only Have 2 Years to File Your Claim
Regardless of the type of accident you have been injured in, you must keep in mind that California law places a limitation on the amount of time that you have to file a claim. There is a two-year deadline, called a statute of limitations, which mandates that personal injury claims or wrongful death claims must be filed within that time-frame. Our firm is here to make sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve, regardless of what your accident involves and who was responsible.
