Common Personal Injury Myths
1) You don't need an attorney for minor injuries
Just because your injuries are minor doesn't mean that you aren't entitled to being compensated. Minor injury cases are the most important cases to hire an attorney on as insurance companies will attempt to offer the lowest amount for these types of cases. A personal injury attorney can help you secure fairer settlements for your injuries.
2)The party at fault will have to pay out-of-pocket
Some people are hesitant to file a personal injury claim because they believe that the party at fault for the incident will have to pay the settlement out of their own pockets,
However, in most cases, the other person's insurance company is the one who ends up paying any settlement you're awarded.
3) You can file a claim whenever you want regardless of when it happened
Don’t think that you have all the time in the world to file a personal injury claim. California has a statute of limitations that prevents you from filing a personal injury claim after two years.
The time frame usually begins on the day of your accident, which is why it’s important to consult with a personal injury attorney soon after the accident occurs.
