How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You
If you’ve been hurt or have suffered losses in a car accident, boat accident, bike accident, motorcycle accident, or other accident in San Diego, California, the Law Offices of Bruce S. Meth can help you in a number of ways. First of all, our law firm can review your case to determine whether you might be entitled to make a claim. From there, our personal injury lawyers can take all necessary steps to help you seek the damages you deserve either from the negligent parties or from insurance companies.
- Determining Negligence. Victims who have been hurt due to another party’s negligence or neglect may be able to seek damages for their losses. However, determining negligence is not always straightforward. Under California’s pure comparative fault rule, you can sue another party even if the other party is only one percent at fault for your accident. Why would anyone want to sue another party for 1% of fault? Take an example where a person is seriously injured. Spinal cord injuries, for example, can leave victims with medical bills in excess of one million dollars, in some cases. If another driver is any way at fault for this kind of accident, it may be beneficial for the seriously injured party to pursue a claim. In order for another party to be found negligent or at fault for a crash, the party must have had a duty to either drive carefully or to properly maintain his or her property. If the person failed to either drive safely or failed to properly maintain his or her property, and you or a loved one suffered damages as a result, you may be entitled to make a claim under the law. Let the Law Offices of Bruce S. Meth, a personal injury firm in San Diego, California, help you.
- Estimating the Value of Your Claim.Many factors will go into determining the value of your claim. Your personal injury claim lawyer at the Law Offices of Bruce S. Meth can review your medical bills, review your rehabilitation costs, and lost wages. If you have been seriously injured or are disabled as a result of your accident, our firm may be able to estimate future lost wages and medical costs based on the seriousness of your injury. Finally, you may also be entitled to seek damages for pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your accident related injuries. Our attorneys utilize over 50 years of combined experience to determine the value of your pain and suffering damages. Finally, in special instances, victims may also be entitled to receive punitive damages.
- Pursuing the Claim. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Bruce S. Meth utilize a variety of means to pursue a claim. Our firm can speak to insurance adjusters and fight to help you get the settlement you deserve. We can review insurance policies, help you understand your deductibles, and work with you to help you get the best possible settlement permitted under the law. We can also fight negligent parties either inside or outside of court to help you get the damages you deserve.
Navigating the claims process after a serious injury accident can feel overwhelming and confusing. Not everyone is accustomed to speaking to insurance adjusters and individuals may not always understand their rights.
