  • What damages are available in a personal injury case?

    In California, the “statute of limitations” (deadline) to file a personal injury claim is two years from the date of the accident.

  • What damages are available in a personal injury case?

    Any losses you suffered as a direct result of your accident should be covered. Generally, this includes compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and property damage as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

  • How much is my personal injury case worth?

    Everyone’s losses are based on unique factors specific to their case, so it is impossible to determine exactly how much you can receive without legal counsel. However, if you consult with a personal injury lawyer such as those at Block LLP, we can help you determine how much your case is worth.

  • Do I need a lawyer for a personal injury case?

    You can file a claim without an attorney’s help; however, unless your claim is extremely straightforward and/or you have a significant amount of legal knowledge, working with a lawyer is best. An attorney can help you navigate the claims process and take care of most of the legal paperwork and procedures on your behalf. A lawyer can also accurately calculate how much you are owned, collect and preserve relevant evidence, find trusted expert witnesses to testify for you, and argue your case during negotiations and in court. Plaintiffs are much more likely to secure just compensation with a lawyer’s help; otherwise, the defendant’s insurance company and their lawyer may take advantage of your lack of legal know-how and coerce you into accepting a settlement that is far less than the amount you need or deserve.

  • How do I pay for a lawyer in a personal injury case?

    Most personal injury lawyers, including those at Block LLP, work on a contingency fee basis. This means that rather than paying your attorney up front, legal fees come out of the settlement you receive if you win your case. If you lose your case, you don’t owe your attorney a thing. Either way, you almost never have to pay out of pocket for a personal injury attorney.
