The California Highway Patrol reported 156,909 accidents resulting in injury per their latest released Statewide Annual Report of Fatal and Injury Motor Vehicle Traffic Collisions. If you’ve been affected by a car, truck or motorcycle accident in California, it’s vital that you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Only a personal injury attorney specializing in California vehicle accidents can ensure that you get the full benefit of your legal rights.
The California statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the date of the injury. Many people mistakenly believe that the statute of limitations starts running from the time you discover the injury. You must take action immediately on behalf of yourself or your injured family member to make certain that you have the financial means to deal with any medical complications that arise in the future.
If you’ve lost a family member to a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, the two-year statute of limitations also applies. You have final expenses that can wipe you out financially. You must pay the bills and buy groceries while medical bills arrive daily. The last thing that you want to think about is dealing with attorneys, but it’s necessary to protect you and your family. Guldjian Law is experienced in dealing with personal injury and wrongful death cases related to car accidents in California. We can help make your life easier by getting you the money to which you are entitled.
Any motor vehicle accident can result in death, serious injury or permanent disability. “Minor” injuries can keep you from returning to work or school for weeks or months. You may be denied disability even though you’re physically incapable of working. Injuries that seem to heal quickly can cause arthritis or other disabling conditions when you get older. The other party’s insurance company has lawyers that will contact you at home or even come to the hospital and try to convince you to settle the case. The amount of money may sound like enough at the time but will run out quickly. If you’ve lost a family member, you may receive a large sum in a wrongful death suit. If you agree to a settlement, you sign away your rights.
Don’t sign anything before speaking to an experienced personal injury attorney at Guldjian Law. We can tell you if you have a case and how much you may receive if you choose to file suit. Contact us today so that we can help you.
