Personal Injury

Personal Injury

Under California law, when an individual is seriously injured due to the carelessness or recklessness of another person or party, they have the right to take legal action to recover financial damages. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen automatically. Accident victims are expected to make their case through the claims process, which can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive ordeal. By working with a skilled Pomona personal injury attorney during the claims process, victims can get help filing their claim and seeking financial justice. We will help you to secure the maximum possible financial compensation allowable under state and federal law.

Most of the time, accident victims don’t need to go to trial to get a fair outcome. The vast majority of personal injury cases are resolved through negotiations rather than litigation. This takes the form of a back-and-forth exchange with the claims examiner who is handling your case. If the claims examiner makes an offer that you find acceptable, your case is over. However, victims who enter into the negotiations process without legal representation, often have no idea what their claim is worth. It’s may be easy to calculate the total income lost and/or medical expenses related to an accident, but how do you put a monetary value on your pain and suffering? The only way to truly know whether or not you are being offered a fair settlement is to let a personal injury lawyer review your case.

If negotiations fail, the next course of action is litigation. During litigation, verdicts are determined by a jury based on the information presented in court by both sides. Having legal representation during a trial can help level the playing field and allow you to take on insurance companies effectively.
