We Have a Track Record of Success in Catastrophic Injury Cases
Our law firm accepts a wide range of truck accident claims including those that involve either minor injuries or serious, permanent disabilities. The type of injury you’ve sustained and its severity will impact the approach we take when investigating your case, negotiating with the opposing party, and (if necessary) preparing for alternative dispute resolution or trial. Not all truck accident attorneys in San Francisco have extensive experience handling catastrophic injury cases, such as those that involve brain trauma or spinal cord injuries. But at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we understand the nuances of these claims, and we know the most effective strategies to employ in the pursuit of a fair settlement. When a truck accident victim suffers a permanent disability, the outcome of their personal injury claim could be a highly influential factor in determining their future quality of life. Depending on the circumstances, obtaining a fair payout could be the difference between living independently or having to move into a government-funded assisted living facility. While this particular scenario might not apply to your case, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of doing everything in your power to pursue the highest settlement possible. That starts with hiring a well-credentialed personal injury attorney with the right experience. Our lawyers have won more than $300,000,000 for accident victims in their families. Many of our most substantial recoveries were in catastrophic injury cases. We know when to bring in medical and financial experts and how to use their deposition and testimony to strengthen our clients’ cases. We know the kinds of damages that might be recoverable—including damages that many accident victims overlook. We also understand how to maximize the potential value of our clients’ cases by applying the relevant case law and statutes to the damages calculations. Future medical care, domestic help, modifications to your home and vehicles, loss of earning capacity—all of these may be recoverable losses. But with more money on the line, you can expect the insurance company to aggressively search for reasons to dispute your claim. Our lawyers can help you stay one step ahead by anticipating the most likely disputes to arise and taking the necessary steps to put ourselves in the best possible position to prevent or overcome such disputes. The bottom line—we take a personal interest in the wellbeing of our clients. When representing an accident victim who has suffered a disabling injury, our legal team works night and day to fight for the highest compensation possible, and we won’t settle for anything less than you deserve.
Factors That Could Influence the Settlement Calculations
As you might suspect, the severity of your injuries and how those injuries have affected your life will have a profound impact on the settlement calculations. Below are a few other factors that might influence the potential value of your claim:
- Whether your own negligence contributed to the accident;
- The amount of income you were making before the injury;
- The cost of healthcare;
- The amount of time you will spend out of work due to the injury; and
- Whether the defendant acted with malice, oppression, or fraud.
