Injury Lawyers Riverside
Have you sustained any kind of loss due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others? Maybe you were on Magnolia when a car ran a red light and sideswiped you. The other person claims it is your fault for making a right on red without looking. If it is your word against their insurance agency, you may want to hire a lawyer. Perhaps you were hiking Mount Rubidoux and another hiker’s dog bit you. That car you bought at a dealership downtown had a factory recall you should have been told about. The defect caused you to get in a wreck on the 91 to 60 interchange on your way to Moreno Valley.
Whatever the nature of your loss, you may be entitled to compensation. Perhaps the other party is not claiming fault and is refusing to supply sufficient reimbursement. Whether your losses are physical, financial, psychological or related to loss of reputation, the Panish Shea & Boyle’s Riverside personal injury attorney team can research your situation and determine how much compensation you are due.

If you have sustained sizable loss of any kind, a Riverside personal injury lawyer may represent your case against other individuals, companies, agencies, government entities, or other groups. Special tort laws govern damages and losses of any kind and personal injury lawyers exhaustively research these laws to provide their clients with the best possible defense. When lawyers gather information from their clients, they determine which laws are directly related to the situation and can provide a case for gaining compensation.
How much is your case worth?
Your lawyer will look at a number of factors to determine how large your settlement claim can be. These factors include your current and future medical bills, lost income due to disability or hospitalization, loss of ability to work, physical or emotional pain, property loss, reputation loss, and other factors. There is no formula for figuring out the value of your case. Lawyers must take all the elements of your situation into consideration while researching laws and previous cases.
How long will your personal injury case take?
The length of your lawsuit is also determined by many factors. Each case is unique and a general timetable cannot be defined as they can range from a few months to a few years. When you are providing evidence under oath, you will be asked about the types of losses you have sustained, whether there were witnesses, if you have had any previously related circumstances, what your job history is, and more. The answers to each of these questions can potentially simplify or complicate your case.
How Much Will A Lawyer Cost?
At Panish Shea & Boyle, our attorneys take their clients’ cases as their own. As we partner with our clients, we do not charge attorney’s fees and work on a contingency fee basis where costs are not due until a recovery is obtained for the client in the case.
What Is Negligence or Wrongdoing?
In order to have a case for personal injury compensation, the victim’s injuries must be directly related to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or group. Negligence is when a person or organization does not follow required policies or laws or does not follow a reasonable standard of expected behavior. If a person fails to act reasonably, he or she may be considered at fault.
What if I Was Partially At Fault?
Even if you were at fault, you may still have a case, depending on the nature and geographic location of the incident. Some areas do not allow victims to file for personal injury losses if the victim’s negligence contributed to the incident. However, most places support victims by holding that the partial fault of the victim may not nullify the greater fault of the defendant. This is called comparative negligence. Possibilities depend on the jurisdiction and the details of the case so be sure to contact a personal injury attorney to explore your options.
