When you’ve suffered a serious injury and want to file a lawsuit against the person who caused it, knowing where to begin can be difficult. Personal injury law is incredibly complex, and it’s common for victims like you to have many questions. That’s why Haffner Law is here to answer some common inquiries our clients have.
What Do I Need to Prove My Case?
The pieces of evidence you’ll need for your attorney to build your case will depend on the type of accident you suffered. In general, you’ll need documentation from your doctor that details the extent of your injuries, any photographs from the scene and of your injuries immediately after the incident, witness statements, and a police report, if one was filed.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim for Compensation?
Every state has a statute of limitations regarding how long after an accident you are allowed to file an injury claim. In the state of California, you have two years from the date you were injured.
What Is My Claim Worth?
Although it won’t be possible for our attorneys to determine exactly what your claim will be worth upon a first meeting, we will eventually be able to determine the value of your claim by understanding the impacts your injuries have had on your life. You could recover compensation for medical care, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
What Are Some Common Types of Personal Injury Cases?
Personal injury law encompasses many different types of accidents and injuries. Some examples of these cases include car accidents, workplace accidents, premises liability cases, <, medical malpractice cases, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and nursing home neglect.
Do I Qualify to File a Personal Injury Claim?
If someone else’s negligent actions caused your injuries, you will, in most cases, be able to file a personal injury claim.
