Huntington Beach Personal Injury Lawyer
A catastrophic injury can require expensive medical care and make it impossible to work. Find out if you can seek compensation from those responsible by consulting with a Huntington Beach personal injury lawyer.
If you have been injured in any type of accident, you may have a case for financial compensation. As long as someone else was at fault for what happened to you, a personal injury claim could allow you to receive a settlement to cover your damages and losses.
Unfortunately, it’s not easy to know what your claim is worth, and the insurance company that your compensation will most likely come from isn’t going to be eager to help you assess your claim’s value. A Huntington Beach personal injury lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you navigate this process and achieve a successful resolution.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Virtually any accident situation could qualify as a personal injury scenario as long as someone other than you was at fault for causing your injuries. Some of the accident types we see on a regular basis include all of the following:
- Slip-and-falls and premises liability
- Traffic accidents involving passenger cars, motorcycles, and commercial trucks
- Defective products
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace and construction accidents
- Dog bites
Proving Negligence for a Catastrophic Injury
Your Huntington Beach personal injury lawyer must prove that someone else was responsible for your accident in order for you to receive compensation. You can be partially at fault as long as someone else was more at fault than you. To prove this, we will need to review any and all available evidence:
- Accident reports
- Pictures or videos
- Witness testimony
- Accident-related medical records
Dealing with Insurance During a Personal Injury Claim
When you file an accident claim, the other party’s insurance company might contact you and ask questions or try to get you to make a statement. Avoid communicating with these entities as much as possible. They are not on your side and will use your words out of context against you if they think it will help them blame you for your injuries.
Instead, let our office handle the communications and negotiations on your behalf. We can keep the insurance company honest, allowing you to focus on your recovery without having to worry about inadvertently giving the other side an unfair advantage.
Personal Injury Compensation
Your Huntington Beach personal injury lawyer will get you as much money as possible for your injury claim. We will work closely with your doctor to determine the full extent of your injuries, how likely you are to recover, and what medical care will be required in the future.
This is a critical step because injury victims often settle too quickly without realizing that they will need medical care on an ongoing basis. We can also seek compensation for any of the damages listed below that apply to your situation:
- Lost wages, income, and earning potential
- Cost of in-home caregivers
- Mobility and medical equipment
- Transportation expenses
- Physical therapy and medication
- Cost to retrofit your home or vehicle
- Lost enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
