IS IT WORTH HIRING A NOVATO PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY?

It’s natural for the victim of a personal injury to wonder whether they really need legal representation, particularly when fault for their recent injury is readily apparent. However, it’s crucial for any potential personal injury plaintiff in the Novato, CA, area to understand that even the most seemingly straightforward personal injury claims can easily evolve into highly complex litigation battles requiring the utmost care and professional attention.

If you were to attempt to handle your personal injury claim on your own, you would likely encounter problems that you would not know how to address. You could make mistakes with your court filings and face unexpected delays in your case proceedings. It’s also likely that you would overlook some compensation channels and settle for much less than you should. The team at Rush Injury Law can help you not only succeed with your personal injury claim but also maximize your recovery to the fullest extent possible under California law. You can recover with peace of mind while your legal team handles the complex procedural requirements of your case.

HELPING VICTIMS OF ALL INJURIES

A severe injury can throw your life off course, changing your sense of normal in an instant. You may be unable to work, helplessly watching as your medical bills pile up while your body struggles to recover. We understand the uncertainties an accident brings and work to provide you with a sense of normalcy and comfort while we pursue a fair settlement.

We have helped accident victims who sustained a variety of serious injuries, including:

  • Serious burns. Burns are not only extremely painful but also highly traumatic. Some burn victims suffer permanent scarring that can be as psychologically harmful as it is painful. Additionally, many severe burns will require multiple rounds of skin grafting surgery and other restorative treatments that are difficult to endure and expensive.
  • Amputation and dismemberment. Losing a limb is one of the most traumatic experiences anyone can have, and these injuries not only entail substantial medical expenses but also permanently alter the victim’s quality of life. Most amputees require long-term or permanent in-home care to compensate for everyday tasks they can no longer do, and they may be unable to work in the future due to the severity of these injuries.
  • Significant disfigurement. Any injury resulting in permanent disfigurement will undoubtedly change the victim’s lifestyle and significantly diminish their enjoyment of life. In addition, disfiguring injuries can not only entail psychological trauma, but the victim may also require several rounds of restorative treatments to reach maximum medical improvement.
  • Permanent loss or limited use of a body organ, function or system. These injuries will completely alter the victim’s quality of life. They may require permanent in-home medical treatment and be completely unable to live independently, even after reaching maximum medical improvement.
  • Soft tissue injuries. While “soft tissue injuries” may sound mild, the reality is that the tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues of the body are highly susceptible to severe injuries, some of which may require surgery to correct. Additionally, soft tissue injuries have a very high chance of causing chronic pain and other permanent medical complications.
  • Brain and head injuries. The human brain is incredibly complex and highly vulnerable to traumatic injuries. Any head injury has the potential to cause permanent damage, and all brain injuries are inherently unpredictable. It can take weeks, months, or even years for the full range of effects of a brain injury to become noticeable.
  • Spinal cord damage. The spinal cord cannot heal itself like the rest of the body, and any injury to the spinal cord can interrupt the neurological pathway between the brain and other parts of the body. Spinal injuries often result in loss of sensation and paralysis for the body parts connected to the spinal cord below the injury site.
  • Back and neck injuries and whiplash. These injuries are common from car accidents, and the victim may experience pain and other adverse symptoms for weeks or even months following their injury. Back and neck injuries, including whiplash, also commonly cause long-term medical complications for victims.

In addition to helping injury victims recover, we also seek justice for loved ones and families of fatal accident victims. A wrongful death claim can functionally replace a personal injury claim when the victim does not survive their injuries. Filing a wrongful death claim is very similar to the personal injury claim process, with a few notable exceptions. Our team will guide you through the wrongful death claim process with confidence and compassion if you recently lost a loved one due to another party’s negligence.

HOW WERE YOU INJURED?

If you are unsure whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim, simply determine whether the injury occurred because of another party’s actions. If so, you likely have grounds for a civil claim against them, no matter how they injured you. Serious injuries happen with alarming frequency in a surprising number of ways. Common causes of accidents include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: From a red-light collision to a rear-end accident involving a semitruck, we help car crash victims seek maximum compensation.
  • Premises liability: Premises liability claims can range from a slip-and-fall accident to a dog bite injury.
  • Boating accidents: The abundance of open water in the Bay Area contribute to a high volume of watercraft accidents.
  • Defective products: From improper warning labels to factory imperfections, defective products can cause grave injuries.

These are just a few of the most common causes of personal injury claims throughout Northern California. Personal injuries can happen from an extensive range of potential causes. The determining factor as to whether a victim has the right to file a civil claim for a personal injury is whether the injury occurred due to another party’s negligence. Your Novato personal injury lawyer will assist you in determining liability for your recent personal injury, and Rush Injury Law will help you investigate every potential channel of compensation that’s available in your claim.

HOW DO I PROVE FAULT FOR A PERSONAL INJURY?

“Negligence” is the core legal concept of every personal injury claim filed in Northern California. To succeed with your personal injury claim in Novato, you will need to identify the party or parties responsible for your personal injury and then prove they were negligent in some way that directly resulted in your claimed damages. First, the plaintiff must determine who bears liability for their damages. A Novato personal injury attorney can help their client recover video footage, eyewitness testimony, and other physical evidence they may require for establishing a defendant’s duty of care in the situation in question. Next, the plaintiff and their attorney must show the court how the defendant failed to uphold this duty of care.

When it comes to damages in a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must provide a complete and accurate list of all the damages they intend to claim. Additionally, they must prove those damages resulted solely due to the defendant’s negligence and not some other cause. For example, suppose you had a back injury before a negligent driver caused a car accident with you, making your back injury worse. In that case, you could not sue for medical costs you incurred before the accident, but you could sue for any further medical expenses related to the treatment of your worsened back injury.

Every personal injury claim will involve unique details, and the right attorney will make a tremendous difference in the outcome of any personal injury claim. Rush Injury Law will carefully review the details of your recent personal injury, help you determine who is responsible for your damages, and then assist you in calculating those damages. Our goal is to maximize your recovery to the fullest extent allowable under California state law.
