There are many things that a personal injury attorney can help with. One of these things is filing a claim for personal injury caused by another person or party.
Most states have a statute of limitations or a time frame by that you have to file a claim. In California, you have up to 2 years from your injury. If your claim is against the state, the statute of limitations is up to 6 months.
If the accused party can put part of the blame on you, the shared fault law comes into play. You will only get partial compensation if you are partially to blame for the incident.
There are a few limits on when you can and can’t get compensation for your claim. If you claim non-economic things like pain and suffering from a car accident, but do not have insurance, then you can’t get compensation for it. There is also a cap on non-economic medical malpractice claims.
