How Watsonville Personal Injury Attorneys Are Here to Help

At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we have seen firsthand how devastating an unexpected accident can be. We know you are suddenly burdened with medical expenses. If you do not have health insurance, then these bills can become astronomical. If your spouse or a parent you depended on was killed, you are not only facing funeral and burial expenses, you are still responsible for your normal bills without their income. The financial repercussions of an accident are often the basis for pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit or insurance settlement.

There are many steps we will take in pursuit of an appropriate financial recovery, including:

  • Gathering evidence, which may include photos, videos, sound recordings, paperwork, physical objects, and eye witness testimony;
  • Connecting with expert witnesses, when you are facing a complicated or highly contested claim;
  • Analyzing the evidence to build a case regarding who is at fault and liable;
  • Calculating your damages, including your medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain, emotional distress, disfigurement, disability, reduced earning potential, and more;
  • Communicating with insurers with the purpose of having your claim approved;
  • Protecting your privacy and other rights during the insurance claim process;
  • Appealing a denied claim, when necessary;
  • Participating in settlement negotiations;
  • Filing a lawsuit;
