Who Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Under state law, Sacramento accident victims can seek compensation from the negligent, at-fault party through a personal injury lawsuit. Some type of injury, minor or severe, must have been sustained.
A few examples of injuries that may qualify for a personal injury claim include:
- Blunt force trauma
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Vision or hearing loss
- Eye or facial injuries
- Birth-related injuries
- Cancers from toxic exposure
- Burns of the second, third, and fourth degree
Note that personal injury victims must also prove that “damages” which may include pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages.
How Much is My Case Worth?
Accident victims harmed by negligence deserve full and fair compensation. Insurance companies try to cut deals with victims to limit their liability. Often, they may claim they are doing you a favor by offering you a low settlement. In our experience, it is always best to have a lawyer to at least review a settlement offer before you sign anything.
As mentioned, the Insurance Research Council conducted a study finding that people who hire a personal injury lawyer to represent their interests receive settlements that are 3.5-times larger on average when compared to people who do not use an attorney.
At Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman, we are passionate about protecting and advocating for the legal rights of Sacramento residents.
