Do you have a Burbank, Santa Clarita, Van Nuys or Palmdale Lawsuit?
In order to win a personal injury lawsuit, you must be able to prove the following:
- That your accident was the direct result of negligence on the part of someone else, or on the part of a company or other such legal entity. This means that the accident was foreseeable based on the actions of the negligent party, or that the negligent party engaged in activities reckless enough that a reasonable person in the same situation would have avoided.
- That you suffered physical damage as a direct result of this personal injury.
These can be tricky propositions for any Stevenson Ranch lawyer to prove in litigation, and an experienced attorney who is worth their salt will be up front with you regarding your chances of proving these facts beyond reasonable doubt. If, however, you do have solid grounds for litigation, a Stevenson Ranch personal injury lawyer should also inform you of this, and advise you of the best way to proceed with your lawsuit.
Our experienced law firm can help guide your personal injury settlement or lawsuit through the legal process from start to finish.
First steps in filing a personal injury lawsuit in California
First and foremost, if you have serious injuries, you should seek medical treatment. Keep in mind that there is often a statute of limitations that limits the amount of time a victim has to file suit. As soon as possible, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney. Such an attorney usually recommends bringing documentation of your medical treatment to date as well as any reports on the accident that caused your injuries. Often an attorney initiates an investigation of your accident, usually with the help of qualified staff.
If you have a valid case, you must then draft a written compaint outlining your version of the events of the accident, while specifying the defendants you wish to sue for damages. Once you serve these papers to the proper courthouse, your Stevenson Ranch personal injury lawsuit is filed.
