An unexpected injury can wreak havoc on your life, causing physical pain, mental distress and long-term financial complications. Fortunately, California law protects those who have been injured due to the negligence of another. At the Law Office of Craig Charles, we have a track record of fighting vigorously for those who have suffered personal injuries and helping our clients make a full financial recovery.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of another, California law gives you the right to pursue a legal claim that may result in a financial settlement. Common forms of personal injury cases include:
If you’ve been injured in such a scenario, it’s critically important to follow some smart safety protocols to protect yourself and the viability of any legal case. First, immediately after your injury, contact any relevant medical and legal authorities. If possible, document the scene and the conditions that contributed to the injury with photos or video.
Those who have suffered an injury may be entitled to medical bill payments, lost wages and other forms of compensation. Because of this, it’s important to carefully track all expenses during your recovery. Once you’re feeling well enough to move forward, it’s advisable to contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
Those who are liable for causing serious personal injuries (or their insurers) often make an inadequate first offer in the hope that the injured person will accept it and walk away. These offers often underestimate the expenses that occur with long-term injuries, leaving the victim in an even more precarious position.
Our law firm will fight to make sure that doesn’t happen. We’ll negotiate to ensure that you receive equitable compensation. If a trial is necessary, we have access to medical experts, vocational specialists and other professionals who can help substantiate your case. To give yourself the best odds of receiving a fair settlement or prevailing at trial, it’s important to understand how personal injury law works, and the steps you need to take right after being injured.
