Personal Injury Lawyer Cost
Our personal injury practice represents injury victims on a contingency fee basis. This means our personal injury attorneys only charge a fee if we obtain a recovery. Our services are free if we don’t obtain a recovery for you. Our fee is simply a small percentage of any recovery we obtain for you. There is no upfront cost for our services. You will never owe us any money out of your own pocket.
We Know The Best Doctors To Treat Your Injuries
We’ve been practicing personal injury law in California since 1990 and we’ve proven to the finest doctors in the state in that time that we are the experts at obtaining financial recoveries for personal injury clients. They have agreed to wait until our clients’ cases are over before charging for their services because they know almost all of our cases settle out of court for sizable recoveries.
We can get you to the best doctors for your injury treatments and you won’t have to pay for their services until your personal injury case is over.
Personal Injury Recoveries
We can recover financial compensation for many kinds of damages in personal injury claims or lawsuits, including:
- Medical bills: Most personal injury cases involve medical bills. You may be eligible to recover compensation for not only medical bills you have already incurred due to your serious or permanent injuries, but also compensation for any medical bills you can be reasonably expected to incur in the future in connection with your personal injury accident.
- Medication costs: Your injuries may cause you to need medication, and we can help you obtain financial compensation for the costs of any medication related to your personal injury claim.
- Lost wages: It is common in personal injury accidents for injury victims to end up missing time from work due to their injuries. They may be unable to work because of their injuries or they may have to take time off to attend medical treatments or appointments. A personal injury settlement can involve financial compensation for any wages you were unable to earn due to your injuries.
- Loss of earning capacity: It is common for an injury victim to be unable to work after their injury, or unable to do the work they did before their injury. You may qualify for financial compensation for any loss of earning capacity related to your injuries.
- Physical and mental pain and suffering: It is common for personal injury victims to suffer from physical pain and mental suffering. We can help you obtain a fair settlement which compensates you for your pain and suffering.
- Vehicle/property damage: A car accident is one of the most common accidents involved in personal injury cases. We can help you obtain financial compensation from the insurance company for any property damage you sustained in your accident.
- Permanent disability, disfigurement or scarring: These are injuries which are accompanied by financial and emotional damage which lasts a lifetime. Our lawyers are experienced in accurately valuing and obtaining compensation for such damages.
- Wrongful death: We are sorry for your loss if you lost a loved one in a personal injury accident. You may qualify for compensation for burial expenses, funeral expenses, the loss of the love and companionship of your loved one, the loss of your loved one’s income, and more.
Why Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
You need a personal injury lawyer if you’ve been injured in an accident because you’ll never receive full, fair compensation for your injuries without one. Insurance companies don’t have any reason to pay you fairly for your injuries if you don’t have a lawyer, since they know you can’t take them to court and win over a low ball offer if you lack a lawyer. Insurance companies will refuse to offer you what you are entitled to for your injuries under California law if you don’t have a lawyer. They will do so and literally dare you to sue them over it, knowing you can’t win a lawsuit without a lawyer.
In addition, insurance adjusters are literally trained to manipulate you into saying things they can take advantage of in order to pay you less money or no money at all for your injuries. The insurance companies are not your friends. Your well-being is not their priority. Their priority is their profit margin, and they will not hesitate to resort to cheap tricks in order to pay you less. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer like the lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen who can handle all communications and negotiations with insurance companies for you. This way, you don’t have to worry about saying the wrong thing. All you have to do is sit back and let us take care of every aspect of your case while you focus on your recovery.
Negligence: The Key To Your Recovery
Almost all of our cases settle out of court because we are the experts at proving that our clients’ injuries were caused by someone’s negligence. Negligence is the failure to be reasonably careful in order to prevent harm. One is negligent when they don’t act as a reasonably careful person would in the same situation.
California law holds those who cause injuries via negligence liable for those injuries.
Proving negligence is a complex and time-consuming task which involves thorough evidence gathering and skillful construction of a case. You don’t want to try to handle this task on your own, and you don’t want to hire lawyers who don’t have vast experience in performing this task. We have been successfully proving that our clients’ injuries were the result of other parties’ negligence since 1990. We have the experience and tenacity to prove that your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence.
Is There A Time Limit In California To File A Personal Injury Lawsuits?
You must file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident in California. This time limit is known as a statute of limitations.
However, the time limit is only six months for claims involving governmental agencies.
What Should I Do After A Personal Injury Accident?
It’s important that you take the right steps after a personal injury accident. Taking the wrong steps can severely impact your ability to obtain financial compensation for your injuries. If you have been injured in an accident, you should:
Get to safety: It’s common for those who have just been hurt to freeze due to pain or shock. Don’t panic; perform an evaluation of your surroundings.
Look around you for anything that can hurt you even more. If you’ve been in a car accident, for example, the safest place you can be is off of the road. Try to get yourself and your vehicle to the shoulder or median. However, don’t move a vehicle if it could lead to harm to yourself or others. Be sure to take pictures of the vehicles involved before moving them. If your injury doesn’t involve vehicles, take pictures of the accident scene which show how the accident happened and document any conditions present.
Make sure others involved aren’t in an unsafe place, too, if you can. However, if you can’t move, stay in place and call 911.
Self-evaluate: Once you’ve made it to safety, scan your body for injuries. Ask yourself:
- Do I have severe pain?
- Can I wiggle my legs, arms, toes and fingers?
- Am I capable of standing?
- Do I have blurry vision?
- Do I have trouble breathing?
- Am I numb? If so, where?
- Am I bleeding? If so, where from?
Ask others involved in the accident these same questions once you’ve confirmed that you’re OK.
Call 911 if you or anyone else display any of the above symptoms. Ask someone else to call for you if you’re unable. Don’t assume that others will call for help.
Obtain medical attention: You need to seek medical attention as quickly as possible even if you don’t think you’ve been hurt. Go to the ER, a healthcare clinic or your GP as quickly as you can, and, of course, call 911 for an ambulance at the accident scene if need be.
Insurance companies can claim your injuries weren’t caused by your accident if you don’t get your injuries documented right away, so it’s vital to seek prompt medical attention after being injured in an accident.
Tell your doctor about any pain and issues, no matter how minor, but don’t exaggerate or embellish. Be honest and listen to your doctor.
Collect evidence: If you’re able to and you don’t need to immediately go to the hospital, speak with the person you believe caused your accident. Get their contact and insurance info. Be very careful what you say to them. Don’t excuse their behavior, apologize, or admit fault. Just get their information.
Be sure to take pictures of the accident scene.
Get the contact information of any witnesses to your accident.
Confirm with first responders that a police report will be made. Take down the names, badge numbers and station address of any officers at the scene. You will want to request a copy of the police report and this information will help.
Write down a narrative: Write down everything about what happened leading up to and during your accident as soon as you can, before your memories fade. Every little detail counts.
Keep a journal detailing your experiences during and after your accident. Describe your levels of pain and how your injuries have affected your life quality and your daily life. This journal can be important evidence when it comes to obtaining compensation for your injuries.
Document the following in your journal:
- Do you have residual effects after the accident?
- Have you experienced lasting impacts?
- How much pain are you in?
- Do you experience fluctuating pain during the day?
- What are you stressed about because of your injury?
- Has being injured affected your relationship with friends or family?
- Has being injured affected your ability to perform work?
Be Careful What You Say: You should only talk about your case with your lawyer and your doctor. Your lawyer should be present if you ever talk to anyone else about your case, such as another lawyer or an insurance company.
Call Nadrich & Cohen: The most important thing you can do to maximize your financial compensation after a personal injury is to call experienced personal injury lawyers like Nadrich & Cohen. Injury victims who are represented by lawyers receive far more compensation on average than those who are not, even after contingency fees are taken into account.
