Handling your personal injury law matters and lawsuits
When a person is injured because of another’s negligence or wrongful conduct, the injured person is entitled to compensation for the damages suffered. The law recognizes several categories of recoverable damages, including:
However, even though the injured person may be entitled to compensation by law, obtaining that compensation is not always a simple or straightforward matter. The burden is on the injured person as the plaintiff to prove the entire case to a jury. This means proving that the accident was the fault of the defendant and that the accident caused the plaintiff’s injuries. The plaintiff must also prove and justify the amount of compensation being sought. Proving these facts is often a complicated matter.
Meanwhile, the defendant, most often represented by a law firm hired by the insurance company, will deny responsibility and try to shift blame for the accident onto the plaintiff. However, under California’s doctrine of comparative negligence, an injured plaintiff can still recover damages, even if the plaintiff was partially negligent in causing the accident or injury. In addition, insurance companies routinely offer far less at first than they are willing to pay. We know how to negotiate for the maximum compensation that you deserve.
