Accidents Happen. But We Fight Against Injuries That Could Have Been Avoided.

Personal Injury Attorney in Walnut Creek

Delivering Powerful Legal Advocacy for Injury Victims

There are many ways in which a person can be injured, very few of which are purely accidental. Widely used to describe injury incidents of every nature, the word accident is often misplaced. More often than not, the incidents that lead to injury and victimization are ones that could - and should - have been prevented. That being said, the work accident is hardly applicable to the case at hand.

If you were involved in an "accident" that was caused by another party's negligent or reckless behaviors then you are rightfully entitled to take legal action, and you should consider nothing else. With the help of a Walnut Creek personal injury lawyer aiding you in your efforts to do so, you can effectively take on cases of this nature either in or out of the courtroom.

With combined experience that spans six decades, you can count on the associates from The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand for help in any of the following legal matters:

  • Cross Over Cases: In some instances, an injury accident incurred on the job can be applicable in both the workers' comp and personal injury fields of the law. These are known as cross over cases.
  • Car Accidents: If it can be proven that your car collision was the result of third party negligence or reckless driving behaviors, then you have cause to make a legal claim.
  • Construction Site Accidents: Being injured onsite a construction zone is not an uncommon occurrence. However, it is one that could likely have been prevented, and as such, should be compensated accordingly. 
  • Slip & Fall: If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be eligible for compensation through a personal injury claim. 
  • Lien Process: The workers' compensation carrier associated with your case will need to be notified of the third party action being taken. This is a job for your attorney. 
  • Credit Rights: It is very important that your injury case is handled by a skilled legal representative that can work to ensure that your case is credited in your favor. 
  • Alternative Medicine: The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand supports clients who wish to seek other forms of medicine and treatment beyond those traditionally offered through medical insurance and injury claims.

Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

The last thing you need after being injured is to deal with the uphill battle of trying to secure compensation from the responsible party's insurance company. As you face mountains of paperwork, expensive medical costs, the financial strain of time away from work, and the physical and emotional toll of your recovery, it can be difficult to know where to turn or who to trust. Having a trusted advocate by your side can help to ensure your best interests are protected during this difficult time and allow you to focus on your recovery with peace of mind.

A personal injury attorney can provide the following benefits to your case:

  • They can handle all necessary paperwork and ensure you meet all filing deadlines
  • They can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and ensure you are treated fairly
  • They can use their knowledge to help you secure a much higher settlement
  • They can keep your case on track and help you avoid costly delays
  • They can investigate the circumstances of your injury and help you build a stronger case
  • They can help you pursue additional damages through litigation if an acceptable settlement cannot be reached

What Damages Can I Recover?

Injury victims in Walnut Creek can seek economic and non-economic damages from the party responsible for their accident. Economic damages encompass all quantifiable losses such as medical bills, property damage, and lost wages, while non-economic damages compensate victims for things like pain and suffering, disfigurement, and emotional distress. With the exception of injury cases related to medical malpractice, California does not impose a cap on compensatory damages in personal injury cases.

Additional punitive damages may be awarded in rare circumstances where the responsible party acted with extreme negligence or malice, such as cases involving intentional harm. Our attorneys can review the details of your case and provide you with a more accurate expectation of what damages you can expect to recover.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in CA?

The general statute of limitations for personal injury claims in California is two years from the date of the injury. In other words, you have two years to file a claim in civil court to seek damages for your injury. With that being said, certain circumstances can extend or shorten this deadline, such as cases involving medical malpractice or the victims of criminal acts. Since adhering to the statute of limitations can have such a critical impact on the success of your case, it is important you contact an attorney as soon as possible to maximize your chances of success.

Common statutes of limitations in California are as follows:

  • General personal Injury: 2 years
  • Wrongful death: 2 years
  • Medical malpractice: 1 year (from discovery)
  • Felony victim claims: 1 year (from conviction)
  • Serious felony victim claims: 10 years (from conviction)
  • Injury claims against a government agency: 6 months
