If you or a loved one sustained an injury because of another person’s negligence, you are likely wondering how you can move forward with a bevy of medical expenses hovering over your head.

Factors that Can Impact Your Damages

There are a number of factors that come into play when determining the damages in a personal injury case. The primary consideration is the amount of financial damage that has occurred from loss of income and medical expenses. In general, the more serious an injury is, the higher the value of the claim.

The level of severity of the injuries suffered is also a significant factor when calculating damages. Although conditions such as whiplash can be very uncomfortable and impact one’s life temporarily, they won’t require as much financial compensation as permanent disfigurement.

Another consideration is the amount of continuing treatment required from the injury. If the condition requires surgery or rehabilitation, your attorney will have strong evidence for a significant claim for damages.

Should an Injury Attorney Help with Your Claim?

Oftentimes, people wonder if they should hire a personal injury attorney after an accident. The answer will always depend on the specifics of each situation and the pending injury claim. However, you can usually err on the side of caution and assume that your personal injury claim would benefit from the guidance of an injury attorney.

An attorney’s insight and experience can help with:

  • Creating a strong claim
  • Filing your claim on time and answering any responses
  • Investigating liability by using evidence and testimonies
  • Calculating your total damages and pursuing them

At BD&J in San Jose, we offer our legal services for personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis and provide free case reviews. In short, contingency fees allow you to hire our attorneys at no upfront cost. Additionally, you do not have to pay us any attorney fees unless we win your case by securing a positive settlement, jury verdict, or court award. Any payment we do receive after a victory is also limited to a percentage of your total winnings, so you never have to worry about not being able to afford using our legal counsel.

The only time you would probably not need an injury attorney is if the value of your case is quite small. Attorneys need to reserve their time and resources for clients who are dealing with significant financial damages and life-changing injuries.

Time Limit for Filing a Claim

California holds to a strict statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims. This is the time limit for which an injured victim can file. For most types of claims, you will have two years from the data of the injury or else be unable to file. There are some exceptions and factors that can extend or shorten this, however.

You only have six months from the date of the incident to file a claim against a government agency, for example. Though rare, there are special circumstances that may allow an extension of the two-year rule as well.
