Personal Injury in California
If you or a loved one was seriously injured in an accident due to someone's negligence, your mind is probably inundated with questions and concerns – How will the medical bills get paid? How will the rent get paid if you cannot work for an extended period to recover from your injuries? What steps need to be taken if you are permanently harmed from the accident? These are important questions that deserve answers. Those answers can be provided by an experienced personal injury lawyer in California with The Geller Firm.
When you have an effective personal injury lawyer on your side, it means you have someone devoted to your interests who will work tirelessly to pursue financial restitution for your harms and losses.
Damages You Can Pursue in a Personal Injury Case
If you were seriously injured in an accident, whether it be a car accident, motorcycle accident, slip-and-fill accident at a business establishment, etc. you typically have the right to pursue economic and noneconomic damages stemming from the accident. Those damages generally include:
- Immediate medical expenses
- Long-term medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
The potential valuation of your personal injury claim will depend primarily on the severity of your harms and losses. One of the best ways to assess the general value of your claim is to schedule a free, confidential consultation with a member of The Geller Firm.
Do I Have to Pay a Retainer Fee or Prepare for a Large Hourly Expense to Hire a California Personal Injury Attorney?
Answer: No. The Geller Firm does not charge a dime to meet with you, we do not require a retainer fee, and we do not work hourly to represent you. Our firm operates on a contingent fee basis. This means our firm does not get paid unless and until you get paid.
Statute of Limitations for California Personal Injury Claims
It is important to understand that accident victims in California do not have an infinite amount of time to file a personal injury claim. There is a statute of limitations that applies to a civil claim stemming from a preventable accident. In California, the statute of limitations that applies to personal injury cases is two years. This means you must file your lawsuit within two years of your accident. If not, you will be barred from making a claim and receiving compensation.
