We Offer Free Initial Consultations |  If We Don't Win, You Don't Pay

We offer free case evaluations to all prospective clients. Even if you’re not sure whether you have grounds for a claim, one of our Hayward personal injury lawyers will assess your situation and help you make informed decisions. If we take on your case, you won’t owe us any attorneys’ fees unless we make a successful recovery either through settlement negotiations or a trial verdict. To ensure your case gets off to a strong start, it is important that you come to your first meeting prepared with any evidence you have compiled. If possible, bring along your medical records, most recent tax return, pay-stubs, any photos you took of injuries and the accident scene, and other evidence that might be relevant to your case. If you do not have access to one or more of these items, don’t worry; our attorneys can gather them for you.

What If I Was Partially at Fault for My Injuries?

If you’ve done any research on personal injury law or the claims process, you may have come across the term “liability.” For your claim to be successful, you must demonstrate that another party is liable for your injury or loss. But what if you were partially liable? Can you still recover compensation? Under California’s “comparative fault” system, a plaintiff who is found partially liable for their own damages may still be able to recover compensation; however, their monetary award will be reduced by their percentage of liability. There are many scenarios when a personal injury victim might be held partially liable for their damages. For instance, if your taillights were out and you were rear-ended by a driver who was texting behind the wheel, both you and the other motorist might shoulder a percentage of fault. Likewise, if you were crossing the road outside of a designated crosswalk and you were hit by a drunk driver, you both might be assigned a percentage of fault. If the insurance company is arguing that you were partially liable or if you believe this might happen, it is important that you consult a Hayward personal injury attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer from Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can gather evidence and possibly bring in accident reconstruction experts and other specialists to determine how your injuries occurred. If it turns out that you did contribute to your injuries, we will do everything in our power to reduce your percentage of liability and help you obtain the highest compensation possible. Our lawyers have many decades of combined experience negotiating with insurance companies, and we have an extensive background handling cases that involved liability disputes. You can count on our seasoned legal team to help you overcome any hurdles you might encounter on the path to fair compensation.
