Serious accidents can happen almost anywhere: behind the wheel, at work, at home, or even at the grocery store. Under California law, when an individual is hurt in an accident that they did not cause by themselves, they have the right to file a personal injury insurance claim against those responsible in order to recover financial compensation for their injuries. If a claim is accepted, victims can use the money so received to pay for hospital bills, lost wages, and other economic costs related to their injuries. In fact, victims are entitled to receive compensation not only for these costs but also for their pain and suffering and for other factors related to an accident that may be harder to quantify. Hiring a knowledgeable Salinas personal injury attorney to help you with the claims process can significantly increase the likelihood of your claim being accepted and of you receiving the financial compensation you deserve. Call the Law Office of John KIopfenstein today to speak with an aggressive Monterey County personal injury lawyer. We’ve never lost a case and we are confident we have the expertise and attitude you need on your side to give you the best possible chance of obtaining a favorable outcome where your issue is concerned.
California is one of the states that operates under what is called the legal doctrine of comparative negligence. This means that if you were partially responsible for causing an accident in which you were injured, you can still recover damages by filing an insurance claim, although the total amount of compensation you receive may be reduced. Even if you suspect that you yourself are to blame for an accident in which you were involved, speak to a knowledgeable Hollister personal injury attorney about your legal options. Sometimes there are third parties such as manufacturers or property owners whose shared responsibility for an injury may not be immediately obvious. Let us evaluate your circumstances and see if proceeding with a claim makes sense.
