We’ll Make Sure the Insurance Company Treats You Fairly
There are all sorts of strategies that insurers use to minimize their liability. They might offer a premature settlement before the full extent of your injuries is known. They might misrepresent recorded statements or contend that you were at fault for your own injuries. They might even prolong the proceedings so your financial losses will add up, giving you incentive to settle. Sometimes insurance companies mislead injury victims regarding the amount of coverage available. Insurance companies also go to great lengths to find reasons to dispute claims. For instance, they might put you under surveillance or browse through your social media accounts to find photos and posts that can be misrepresented to challenge the severity of your injuries. The San Fernando personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers are familiar with these tactics, and we will make sure you are not duped into accepting an unfair settlement. Our attorneys will handle all correspondence with the claims adjuster so you aren’t coerced into making any statements that might be harmful to your case. We will also help you avoid potential disputes by gathering all available evidence and using our extensive resources to prepare for negotiations.
No Attorneys’ Fees Unless We Win Your Case
Many people are hesitant to seek legal counsel because they fear the cost of hiring an attorney. If you’re already facing steep healthcare bills and lost income, the last thing you want to do is pay legal fees. But at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we offer free consultations, and we won’t charge you any attorneys’ fees unless you recover compensation.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Some attorneys will say whatever they must to win your business. They might even promise a particular result. But even if your case seems straightforward, no respectable personal injury lawyer would ever guarantee a specific outcome. The San Fernando personal injury attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers believe in practicing with integrity. We will be honest with you about the strengths and weaknesses of your case as well as the strategies we will use to maximize the potential value of your claim. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to estimate the amount of compensation you might be able to recover until we have conducted a thorough investigation. One way to get an idea of the potential value of your claim is to learn the types of damages available in these cases. Personal injury claimants in California may be entitled to compensation for economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. Examples of economic and non-economic damages include:
- Emergency care, surgeries, rehabilitation, treatment modalities, and other medical expenses;
- Lost income;
- Lost earning capacity;
- Property repairs and replacement;
- Other objectively verifiable losses such as home care and alternative transportation;
- Emotional distress;
- Loss of enjoyment of life;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Loss of consortium.
Punitive damages, which are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar misconduct in the future, are only available if the defendant acted with malice, oppression, or fraud. The San Fernando personal injury lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers can help you determine the types of damages that might be recoverable given the facts of your case. Because there are many kinds of damages that might be available, there are numerous factors that could influence the potential value of your claim. These include the severity of your injuries, the amount of time you were sidelined from work, and the effects your injuries have had on your relationships with loved ones.
