When someone suffers from an injury due to the careless or deliberately harmful behavior of another person or entity they may experience financial losses due to the incident. The costs of their medical care, therapy, and the repair or replacement of personal items can lead to exorbitant expenses. If you have been injured due to another party’s actions, before you accept an insurance company’s settlement offer, you should contact our experienced personal injury attorney.
Insurance companies often make initially-attractive offers that ultimately fall short when long-term expenses begin to add up. Loss of ability and enjoyment, physical therapy and rehabilitation, lost wages, and disability expenses should be included in any personal injury damages. The assistance of a competent personal injury attorney may result in settlement offers considerably higher than the initial offer.
Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyer can advise you regarding the statute of limitations, the amount of time you have to pursue your case after the incident. Most have two years to file or until their 20th birthday, if they were under the age of 18 at the time of the incident. However, many exceptions to the rule exist, and the advice of our attorney can help you make the right choice for your situation.
