Hurt in an accident? Speak with an Inglewood Personal Injury Lawyer Today

After an accident, you probably have many worries. Will I ever get well? Can I return to work? How will I pay my bills?

Accidents cause serious injuries which probably left you in pain. It’s understandable that you are concerned about your ability to provide for yourself and your family.

Fisher & Talwar can help. We are a personal injury law firm serving the Inglewood community. If you’ve been involved in an accident, now is the time to call us. Negotiating a settlement takes skill and legal experience, which few people have. We can do everything possible to seek compensation for your injuries.

How an Inglewood Personal Injury Lawyer Helps Your Case

Your ability to receive compensation depends on our ability to identify who is at fault for the accident. In many cases, someone did not act with sufficient care, or they were reckless or dangerous. As a result, innocent victims end up in the back of an ambulance or laid up at home struggling to overcome their injuries.

Our lawyers know how to do the following:

We analyze cases to determine fault. Was everything a blur after your car crash? Are you unsure of who is to blame for your slip and fall? We will carefully go through the record to identify who is to blame. In legal terms, this means assigning liability, and it’s a necessary step to receiving compensation.

We reduce your stress levels. Our personal injury lawyers will handle all communication, evidence gathering, and claims submissions so you can focus on getting well.

We work with qualified experts to strengthen your case. Some experts include medical experts, who can help us understand your injuries, and crash reconstruction experts.

We only get paid if you win. This is a terrific advantage of working with Fisher & Talwar. We only ever charge attorney fees if we secure a settlement or win a court case.

We negotiate for fair compensation for your injuries. We are not afraid of the biggest insurance firms in the state or large corporations which deny liability and try to blame you for your accident.

Personal Injury Laws

Many California laws come into play with personal injuries. We want to take a moment to discuss some of the more important things.

First, California has a statute of limitations that identifies the maximum amount of time to bring a lawsuit. For personal injuries caused by negligence, the limit is two years. You absolutely must meet this deadline. If you go over, you might never receive a penny for your injuries.

Second, California has a comparative fault law that divides fault between parties. If you were partially at fault, you can still sue. But your compensation is reduced by your percentage of fault. This means that you will receive only 40% of your compensation if you were 40% to blame.

Third, California’s rules of evidence allow any statement you make to be introduced later. For this reason, we recommend not admitting fault at the scene of the accident. Even if you were looking at your phone before colliding with someone, there is no reason to admit that upfront.

Compensation Should Make a Difference

Many insurers will offer small settlements in the hopes of making the case go away in a cheap manner. You should realize that accident victims can receive compensation for all sorts of losses:

  • Medical care to treat accident injuries
  • Future medical care in the event you suffer long-lasting or permanent injuries
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Damage to your property
  • Other consequential damages
  • Pain and suffering

Our goal in every case is to obtain meaningful compensation based on the facts. For example, if you suffered a permanent brain injury or amputation, you face decades of expensive medical care. We work closely to identify the correct amount to seek.

What Steps to Take Following an Accident

To increase the odds of a fair settlement for your injuries, we recommend that accident victims take certain steps to protect themselves. Some of the more important are:

  • Identify any witnesses to the accident who can provide vital testimony later.
  • Seek immediate medical care and follow through with your doctor’s recommendations. If your doctor recommends four weeks of rehab, never miss an appointment.
  • Refuse to talk about your case on social media and make all profiles private.
  • Decline to give a recorded statement to the insurance companies unless you have your attorney with you.
  • Never sign a proposed settlement offer unless an attorney has reviewed it.
  • Keep all communications about your accident in a folder. Never delete files or throw any paper away.
  • Document your injuries and whether you missed work by holding onto medical bills and records.

If you take these steps, you can put yourself in a good position for receiving fair compensation. We can discuss what other steps to take in a free consultation.
