Personal Injury FAQ's: San Luis Obispo Personal Injury Attorney
Injury Cases and Common Questions
How much is my claim worth?
There is no real way of determining the amount that a settlement could be without reviewing all the information about your case. A San Luis Obispo personal injury lawyer from Pacific Attorney Group provides a free case evaluation to those who believe that they may have an injury case. We urge you to contact us so we can help.
What if the individual who got injured lost their lives in the accident?
When someone dies through the negligent or wrongful act of another, the close family has the right to file a wrongful death claim. It is important to realize that there is a statute of limitations on all such cases in the state of California, and it is advised that you contact us as soon as possible so as not to lose the opportunity to seek justice for the loss of your loved one.
How do I know if I have a medical malpractice case?
These cases can be complex, as there are often complications from medical treatment that are not related to breach of duty. There are, however, many more cases of medical malpractice than we should have in our state. If you suspect that you are a victim of medical malpractice, we can evaluate your situation. We have resources in the medical field who can review the case and determine whether negligence or breach of duty was the underlying cause of the illness or loss of life.
Why do I need a lawyer?
Some people believe they don't need one; the insurance company for the responsible party may have already contacted them and made plans to review their medical records, or interviewed them in person. We cannot stress enough how much this could damage your case. Never provide medical records without getting an attorney first. You working directly with the insurance company can result in loss of certain types of compensation, simply through a failure to correctly manage the case.
