Woodland Hills, CA Personal Injury Claim FAQs
I was just injured in a car accident in Woodland Hills. What should I do to protect my rights?
After any type of accident – car, truck, motorcycle, dog bite, or slip-and-fall – one of the most important steps you can take is to seek prompt medical attention. Your adrenaline could be masking a serious injury, and internal bleeding or organ damage could have serious consequences if not treated promptly. In addition to calling 911 from the scene of the accident, you should:
- Take photos with your phone or camera.
- Collect contact and insurance information from any other drivers involved in the accident.
- Record each vehicle’s make, model, and license plate information.
- Report the accident to your insurance company, but avoid discussing any details about what happened.
- Speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible (we are available 24/7).
What if I was partially at fault in the accident? Or, what if I provoked the dog that bit me?
Never assume you were at fault after an accident. The law is complicated, and you won’t truly know what happened until you hire an attorney to conduct a thorough investigation. But, even if you were partially at fault, under California law you could still be entitled to partial compensation.
What if the driver who hit me doesn’t have insurance?
If the driver who hit you was uninsured (or underinsured), you may need to pursue a claim against your own auto insurance policy. This can be tricky, and you will want to have an experienced attorney on your side. It is also possible that you could have a claim against someone else (or another company) for your accident-related injuries.
Besides the other driver, who else could be at fault for my car accident?
Car accident cases are far more complex than most people realize. In fact, in a typical car accident case, there are as many as eight different parties that could all share responsibility for the victims’ injuries:
- An at-fault driver
- The at-fault driver’s employer
- The owner of the vehicle
- Vehicle and parts manufacturers
- Property owners
- Government entities
- Private government contractors
- Businesses that served alcohol to a drunk driver
How long do I have to file an injury claim in California?
In California, the general “statute of limitations” for injury claims is two years from the date of the accident. However, exceptions may apply (e.g., for claims against government entities), and in any case it is important to conduct an investigation as soon as possible.
Do all injury lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis?
Most, but not all, injury lawyers represent clients on a contingency-fee basis. At Barry P. Goldberg, A Professional Law Corporation, we handle all cases on contingency. Your initial consultation is 100 percent free, and you pay nothing unless Mr. Goldberg helps you win just compensation.
