Santa Ana Personal Injury Attorney

Were you recently injured in an accident?

Have you recently sustained injuries in an accident that was no fault of your own? In California and across the nation, when men, women and children are injured in accidents as a result of someone else's negligence or recklessness, they have the right to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim. Such claims can cover all of the victim's economic and noneconomic damages such as medical bills, ambulance bills, pain and suffering, loss of income and loss of future income.

While injury victims are legally entitled to compensation under California law, injured parties must file a claim within the state's statute of limitations because once the statute "runs out," the legal claim is no longer valid. In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years or one year after the injury was discovered.

Dealing With the Insurance Company

The biggest mistake that people tend to make is handling a personal injury claim on their own. While you can do this, the practice is never advised in the legal community. Since insurance companies are for-profit businesses, they will do everything they can to pay as little as possible in their claims. You can count on the fact that whatever they offer you will be far below what your claim is actually worth. If you make the common error of accepting their offer, you can expect to sustain losses, losses that will come directly out of your pocket, and this is not a good thing.
