Do I Have A Valid Personal Injury Claim For My Accident?
If you are injured in a personal injury accident, you may be entitled to be compensated for your injuries, losses, and damages under California’s personal injury laws. However, knowing whether your claim will be approved is a different matter. Even though you believe you have a valid claim, you must prove each of the elements required to establish fault and liability according to the law for an injury claim.
Our California personal injury attorneys can help you file a claim to recover money for your injury claim. You might be entitled to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other out-of-pocket expenses, in addition to compensation for your pain and suffering.

Questions We Will Ask About Your Accident?
Some of the questions we will ask during your free consultation to help determine if you can file a personal injury claim include:
- Did you suffer any injuries? To recover compensation in a personal injury case, you must show that you were injured. Injuries can include physical, emotional, and mental injuries. An example of a personal injury would be if you suffered broken bones or a head injury after falling in a grocery store or being involved in a traffic accident.
- Do you have recoverable damages? Recoverable damages in a personal injury case can include financial and non-financial damages. Damages can include lost wages, medical bills, travel expenses, medication, physical therapy, and medical equipment. It also includes physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional suffering.
- Did another party cause your accident? If another party caused your accident, you might have a valid claim against that party if you can prove fault. To recover damages, you must prove that the other party was negligent in causing the accident that resulted in your injuries. Proving fault and negligence can be difficult; however, our attorneys have extensive experience in handling injury claims. We investigate the accident to identify the responsible party or parties and gather evidence to prove fault. This is a very important step in the claims process because the insurance company for the other party will work to limit its liability for your damages.
Hiring a California Personal Injury Attorney
It is important that you have an experienced legal team fighting to protect your right to recover full compensation for your injury claims. Insurance companies look for ways to underpay and deny valid claims. For instance, if the company can prove you were partially liable for the accident, your compensation can be reduced under California’s comparative negligence laws. In addition, the company may try to delay your claim until you run out of time to file a lawsuit under the state’s statute of limitations.
