A San Diego car wreck attorney from The Kindley Firm, APC, would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about your car accident and filing a personal injury claim. However, you may want to get a few of your more pressing questions answered beforehand.
Below, we’ve compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions.
To file for personal injury compensation, you must first complete the necessary court forms; insurers must be contacted (both to file your insurance claim and to negotiate settlements); evidence must be gathered and witness statements obtained; medical documentation will be collected; and, if necessary, your case will be argued in court.
If settlements are reached with the insurers or negligent parties outside of court, you may not ever need to set foot in a courtroom. In many cases, your San Diego car accident attorney can file motions and court papers on your behalf. If your case goes to trial, you may need to attend court to recover compensation, but you won’t be forced.
The state of California uses a system of comparative negligence for car accidents. This means courts compare the negligence of the involved parties to see who is the most responsible. Any responsibility you’re found to hold will reduce your compensation.
California’s statute of limitations allows you to file an injury claim up to two years after your car accident in San Diego. This is a relatively firm deadline.
Your car wreck was a tough enough experience; let a knowledgeable injury attorney help you with the aftermath. We will do all the heavy lifting to get you the compensation you need so you can focus on recovering from this traumatic experience.
