Proving fault is everything
California personal injury law follows a strict comparative negligence rule. In other words, winning your case requires proving that the other party is more than 50% at fault for the accident. If you’re found to be partially responsible, you can still win your case — you just won’t be able to collect quite as much compensation as you would if the other side were 100% at fault.
There’s a time limit
In California, the time limit (or “statute of limitations”) for most personal injury cases is two years. This means you have two years from the day you get hurt (or discover symptoms from a delayed injury) to file a claim and begin the process of financial recovery. The big takeaway from this rule: it pays to act sooner rather than later. Don’t wait to contact us and get started on your claim so we can help you
You can file on behalf of a loved one
Certain scenarios will allow you to file a personal injury claim on behalf of a loved one who’s unable to do so themselves. For instance, if you have a spouse or family member who’s incapacitated or was killed in an accident caused by someone else, you can (and should) file on their behalf. This occurrence is common in cases involving traumatic brain injuries, nursing home abuse, and wrongful death.
