Understand Personal Injury Law

Our personal injury attorneys believe in keeping clients informed. Here are some of the basic principles of personal injury law in California:

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

If you've suffered an injury from a car accident or other incident caused by another person's negligence or recklessness, you can make a personal injury claim. This claim allows the injured party to go to civil court in order to achieve a legal solution for all damages and losses associated with the injury. 

California Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit following your personal injury. California's statute of limitations in personal injury cases is two years. If the injury is not discovered right away, you have one year from the date of diagnosis to file your lawsuit.

Complimentary Case Review

Get the process started with a free case review from one of our esteemed lawyers. At this time, your attorney will ask you various questions to help them understand your situation.

The attorney will ask about the accident itself, any medical bills you've had, and how your injuries have prevented you from working. Bring all related documentation to this consultation.

Gathering Evidence

Once you've explained your accident to your lawyer, he will begin gathering evidence to build your case. He might collect statements from witnesses at the scene, check security footage, and even speak with an expert witness to explain how your injuries happened and what negligence caused them.

Filing a Compensation Claim

Once your attorney has gathered the evidence needed to support your case, he will create a claims package to deliver to the insurance companies. In some accidents, such as car accidents involving just you and another driver, you may only file a single claim. In more complex accidents, your lawyer may file multiple claims to hold all liable parties responsible. Your claims package will include all the evidence your lawyer has gathered, and it will specify the amount of compensation you are seeking.


After your lawyer has issued your compensation claim, the responsible party's insurance company will give you a settlement offer. This step is when your lawyer's negotiating skills come into play. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers will fight for maximum compensation. We won't settle for lowball offers from the insurance company.

Bringing Your Case to Court

Ideally, your lawyer will be able to reach a fair settlement with your insurance company without having to go to court. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, your lawyer will not hesitate to proceed to a personal injury trial and argue your case before a judge and jury.
