After an accident, you may wonder whether you have grounds for a lawsuit and what person can be held responsible for the injuries you or a loved one have sustained. The general principle of personal injury law in Los Angeles is that the incident must have stemmed from negligence, intentional wrongdoing, or strict liability. In these cases, the defendant (the person responsible for your injuries) must have acted or failed to act and this caused your injuries. The actions may have been intentional, as in the case of an assault, or unintentional, as in most motor vehicle accidents.
If you have recently been injured or made ill by the actions of another, then you are likely well-aware of the confusion that can arise from dealing with a personal injury claim. If you have questions that you would like answers to, we encourage you to contact a lawyer from our firm as soon as possible. Over the years, we have proven to be advocates for the rights of the accused – you can trust that we will go above and beyond in our efforts to help you during this troubling time. Below, we have compiled some of the most commonly asked questions and answers. Please read through these and contact us if you have further questions.
Simply speaking, the statute of limitations (SOL) is the given timeline that you have following an injury; it is a window of opportunity that you have to file a claim. In California, general personal injury and negligence claims have a SOL of two years. This involves the Discovery Rule, however, which means that the SOL does not apply until the injury or illness has been discovered or would have reasonably discovered. There is a one year SOL for cases of wrongful death, although this does not apply to cases involving asbestos or medical malpractice. For medical malpractice, it is three years.
No two cases are exactly the same, and as such it may be difficult to determine exactly what your injury claim should be worth. However, a lawyer experienced with these matters can work with experts in medicine and economics to establish what your case should be worth – based upon what amount of compensation will best help you rebuild your life as much as possible.
Personal injury law covers a broad range of accidents and injuries, all related to or stemming from negligent or intentional conduct or strict liability. All types of auto accidents are covered under personal injury law and are the most common grounds for these types of cases. Additional cases may involve medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, defective products as well as toxic exposure and poisoning.
Depending on the case, whatever party or parties who caused your injuries may be held responsible. In an auto accident, this may be the driver of the other car. In a case involving medical malpractice, this may be the doctor that made a mistake or acted carelessly in providing your medical care. If you were injured by a defective product or a defective drug, the manufacturer may be held liable. By investigating your particular incident and what led to your injuries, an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer can determine against what party you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit.
Hired Mr. Shayani recently after getting rear ended pretty badly. Mr . Shayani’s firm did a wonderful job settling my case. It’s hard to find any service business with the level of communication that they had with me from start to finish. Besides Mr. shayani the person who stood out to me the most is Olivia at the firm. She was so dedicated to my case, and so attentive. The entire staff there deserves a round of applause. Would def recommend them, and would go back to them my self as well(hopefully I don’t get into another accident though).
Just settled my case with Mr Shayani and it was done in a timely manner, very professional and they answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend them!
I just want to take the time to thank Olivia for being so helpful at the time when I was completely lost, I had a car accident and she answered all the questions I had, filled me in on things I didn’t know I needed to do, and was quick to direct me in the right way! Very friendly staff, would definitely recommend PAG!! Remember they know what their doing, and everything takes time, so be patient!!!!
Looked up a bunch of personal injury lawyers on Google and called a bunch, found this place on Yelp and I am glad that I hired them! They were upfront and honest and ultimately in the end I received exactly what they thought I would! Highly recommended!
Great experience I had with PAG. The best case worker I had, and her name was Azade amanollahi. I highly recommended her for worker’s Comp. My case takes about 2 years and throughout this 2 years my case worker Azade always in touch with me. Any news pop up she give me a call and letting me know what happened. She did help me to get my mileage. She was very professional and very nice and knowledgeable about all of my questions in Farsi and English. Even I went to the office with out appointment she did manage to seat down with me and my case lawyer. I highly recommend if you have Worker’s Comp case get with PAG. They are the best.
