Compensation for Personal Injuries

A personal injury claim seeks money for all losses that flow from the accident. Medical bills and lost income are only two of the most obvious losses people suffer. They can cost you thousands of dollars and make it hard to move forward.

When injuries are serious, we seek money for future medical care and diminished earning capacity. Someone with a permanent brain injury might suffer hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses stretching over several decades. Whoever injured you should be held responsible.

Other compensation can cover damaged property and pain and suffering. Many people are unsure of how much their case is worth, which is why it is important to meet with a lawyer. We bring decades of experience to personal injury cases. Based on this knowledge, we can estimate how much you might receive in an insurance claim.

  • The defendant owed you a duty of reasonable care.
  • The defendant’s conduct fell short of that duty.
  • Your injuries were caused by the defendant’s conduct.
  • You suffered compensable damages.

California’s comparative negligence law will reduce your compensation by your degree of fault. For example, imagine you are riding a bicycle which is hit by a motorist who was texting. However, you also drifted over the center line because you were intoxicated. Because you both are at fault, you will not receive 100% of what you otherwise could receive if you were blameless.

You also have important deadlines to meet, one of which is found in the statute of limitations. This law sets a maximum of two years to

How Heidari Law Group Can Help

Personal injury claims are some of the most complicated legal issues we see. Although you might be tempted to handle your own case, we recommend that you contact us instead. We immediately help our clients by:

  • Communicating with insurance companies to fill out paperwork and answer questions.
  • Gathering helpful evidence to establish who is at fault for your injuries.
  • Negotiating a settlement with the defendant and their insurers.
  • Assisting you in documenting the full extent of your losses.
  • Filing a lawsuit against the defendant if we can’t negotiate a favorable settlement.

Without legal help, the odds are high you will settle for too little money. Other personal injury victims struggle to get an insurer to even make a decision on their claim. But we know how to use California’s bad faith insurance laws to prod insurers to take our claims seriously.
