What is the legal definition of a personal injury?
Think of a personal injury as one that affects your body, mind or emotions, as opposed to your property.
Why do I need a personal injury lawyer?
While there’s nothing under California state law that requires you to work with a personal injury lawyer, we highly recommend doing so. Our laws are wildly intricate and esoteric, and there’s no overstating the benefits of consulting an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Is there a statute of limitations on filing a personal injury claim?
Yes! For more information regarding statutes of limitation in California, contact Hales & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation as soon as possible.
Does Hales & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation accept all personal injury cases?
We do! Contact a member of our professional legal team for more information.
If someone else caused my auto accident, can I sue their insurance for compensation?
Yes. California is an “at-fault” insurance state, meaning that those responsible for causing accidents and injuries will be held liable for the damage they cause.
Can fault for an accident be shared?
Yes. If it is determined that you were partially at-fault for causing an accident, the amount of compensation you can collect will be reduced by the percentage of responsibility attributed to you.
Does California have a cap on noneconomic damages in personal injury lawsuits?
Yes. California law limits the amount of noneconomic (or pain and suffering) damages at $250,000.
Is there a cap on economic damages in personal injury lawsuits?
No. You can collect as much in economic damages as the court sees fit.
