Do You Need an Oak View Personal Injury Lawyer?
After a serious accident that causes you harm or leads to a relative’s death, you suddenly have a lot to deal with. You may be hurt and facing expensive and painful medical care. You may be worried about the medical expenses when you are out of work or your loved one’s funeral expenses that will have to come out of your savings. All of the physical pain, emotional suffering, and financial repercussions of the accident are why it is important to speak with our Oak View accident lawyers to determine if you have a valid legal claim. You need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to review the accident, determine if another party’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional misconduct is at fault, and explain your legal options. In addition to an initial analysis of your claim, our Oak View personal injury attorneys offer:
- Damage Calculations:
When you file an insurance claim or a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, you need to know how much your claim is worth. This is not something you can calculate on your own unless you suffered only property damage and minimal injuries. After suffering serious or catastrophic injuries, it is best to have an experienced lawyer review your damages and calculate the full potential value of your claim. Our Oak View injury lawyers will review and calculate the value of your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, disability, reduced earning capacity, and emotional distress.
- Years of Negotiation Experience
When you bring a personal injury or wrongful death claim, you will often deal with an insurance company. You may go through the insurance claim process, or the at-fault party’s insurer will provide their defense team. Either way, when you have a strong claim, you can expect the insurer to try to settle with you instead of wasting time in court. It is important to have a clear view of your claim and its potential value to avoid low settlements. Initial settlement offers are often low and partnering with an attorney with negotiation experience ensures you are best able to work toward a fair financial recovery.
- Litigation Experience and a Track Record of Success
While many personal injury and wrongful death claims result in insurance settlements, this may not be the outcome for your case. The negligent party may lack insurance, your insurance claim may be denied, or negotiation settlements may breakdown for a variety of reasons. If you wish to pursue compensation when a settlement is not possible, you will need to go to trial and present your claim before a judge and jury, who will then decide if the other party is liable and if so, how much compensation you should receive. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we have years of experience litigating personal injury and wrongful death claims in Oak View and throughout California.
- A Strong Reputation
One of the benefits of hiring a firm like Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is the reputation we have with insurance companies. When an insurer sees that we represent you, they know you take your claim seriously. They know that we will do whatever we can within the law to pursue the maximum amount of compensation for you. Insurers know we are not afraid to take our claims to court and will not settle for a low and inequitable settlement. We are proud to be able to say we have helped more than 5,000 clients throughout California recover more than $300 million in settlements and court rulings.
