Thousand Oaks Personal Injury Attorney
Protecting the Recovery Rights of Victims throughout Ventura County
A serious injury is a devastating ordeal. Following your accident, the most important thing to do is get the care you need to fully recover and not have to worry about getting your bills paid or going into debt because of it. While it is the responsibility of the at-fault party to provide funds for your medical care, their insurance carriers will do everything they can to pay you as little as possible. That’s why a Thousand Oaks personal injury attorney at A. Singer & Associates, Inc. is crucial to help you build a case for the compensation you need and deserve. We offer consultations to guide you through the process of a personal injury lawsuit so you can recover from your injuries and know you are in competent hands.
Cases We Handle
When you need compensation for healthcare costs, you will most likely be dealing with an insurer—not an individual. These companies are known for their tactics to try and pay the lowest possible amount to victims of injury. There is a chance you may have already received a call from an insurer with a settlement offer they insist is generous. It is important to always speak with an attorney first.
At A. Singer & Associates, Inc., we handle all types of personal injury cases, including:
- Auto accidents
- Commercial vehicle accidents
- Animal attacks
- Defective products
- Slip and fall accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Swimming pool accidents
A Note on California Injury Law
All states have their own provisions when it comes to personal injury law. In California, the statute of limitations for most injury claims is two years, shortened to just six months for any claims against city or state government agencies. This is why it is important to seek representation as soon as possible after your accident.
In addition, California has limits on injury damages in specific cases. For instance, uninsured drivers in car accidents cannot collect non-economic pain and suffering damages, even if the other driver is clearly at fault. The exception to this is if the other driver is proven to have been operating their vehicle while under the influence and receives a resulting DUI charge. Medical malpractice cases also have a limit of $250,000 for non-economic damages.
These are just some of the specific state laws that can affect an injury case. At A. Singer & Associates, we have the experience and knowledge of both state and federal law to help you get the results you need and deserve in your injury case.
What You Should Do to Improve Your Chances in Your Injury Case
Immediately after your accident, your top priority needs to be seeking the medical attention you need. By speaking with a medical professional about your injuries, you will have proof of your condition that will hold up in court. If possible, you should take photographs of the accident scene, noting dangerous conditions such as unstable footing or defective machinery.
It is also crucial to talk to your lawyer before speaking with an insurance representative. While they may seem eager to get you compensation for your recovery, they are paid to make sure their employer pays you as little as possible. Our firm has experience fighting these companies, and we can help you with your case.
