Personal injury accidents in San Diego
A large and densely populated city like San Diego is the scene for all types of personal injury accidents and most of these involve vehicle crashes and pedestrian injuries. If you are injured in a car crash, your best choice is to talk to a Los Angelespersonal injury attorney before signing any release form with the insurance company. An expert will be able to evaluate your case and tell you what are the compensations you are entitled to, as well as help you negotiate with the insurance agency and the defendant to obtain the maximum compensation.
Personal injury cases like spinal cord injuries or paralysis cases will be harder to negotiate because the amount of monetary compensation is substantially larger for these types of injuries. A lawyer will be able to negotiate a maximum amount for the physical damages and the medical bills associated with them but also for the emotional trauma that is common in these cases.
Negotiating with the insurance company is a step in itself whenever someone is injured by another individual. Insurance company representatives have several tactics they can use to try to minimize your claim. Having a lawyer by your side, who knows all of the facts of your accident, can help you obtain the right amount of compensation and not a reduced one.
Legal representation in personal injury cases
A set of laws and regulations are distinctive for the State of California. An accident lawyer in San Diego is able to help you understand the laws that apply to personal injury cases in the state of California. One important regulation is the strict liability in all dog bite injuries as well as the limited amount of time to bring a case to court: two years from the date of the accident. Also, plaintiffs in California can bring their case to court based on a pure comparative negligence rule: the plaintiff can also be to blame for the accident but he may still claim compensation even if he is at fault. The condition, in this case, is that the final settlement amount will be reduced by the percentage of fault the plaintiff is found guilty of by the judge and jury. This scenario is most common in vehicle or motorcycle accidents where both drivers failed to observe the applicable traffic regulations.
