No Matter How You Were Injured, We Can Help
We proudly serve clients across California from our offices in Sacramento and Placerville. The Sacramento area is highly populated. Because of the high volume of traffic on the roads, the chances of an accident occurring drastically increase. If you or someone you know has been injured in an auto accident in Sacramento, we are here to fight for your right to compensation.
Injuries On Hazardous Property
Property owners are responsible for ensuring that they provide pedestrians with safe premises. When they fail to live up to this responsibility, serious accidents and injuries can occur as a result. We understand just how devastating these accidents can be, which is why we are here to help those in California who have been wrongly injured on other people’s property recover the compensation they need and deserve in order to heal. If you are looking to file a premises liability claim, we are here to help.
At The Law Offices of Dale R. Gomes, we are also skilled at handling any other type of injury cases, including nursing home negligence, injuries resulting from defective products, and cases that involve a tragic death.
Documenting Your Accident
After an accident, the most important thing anyone can do is ensure that they receive the medical treatment they need. This is why you should always call 911 and request emergency services to arrive at the scene. However, once you do, make sure that you take pictures of the scene of the accident and the damage it caused. You should also get the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident.
After being treated in a hospital, you should make sure that you keep a copy of any medical documentation pertaining to your injuries as well as all medical bills stemming from your injury. We can use these to help demonstrate both the origin and extent of your injury in your personal injury claim. Finally, you should reach out to an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer who can gather and present all additional evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf. For example, in some cases, your attorney may be able to subpoena surveillance footage of an accident, which can be the most efficient way to prove a personal injury claim.
Recovering Financial Compensation
As long as we can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should receive the financial compensation you deserve and need to heal. This compensation should help you cope with the economic and noneconomic damages you’ve sustained. Some examples of economic damages are lost wages, the cost of medical care, damaged property and more. Some examples of noneconomic damages can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium and more.
Time Limits On Personal Injury Claims In California
As you may know, each state has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to filing personal injury claims. In California, in most cases, the statute of limitations is two years. This means that generally, you will only have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. That said, depending on where you were injured, you may have even less time to file a Notice of Claim. This is why it is simply best to receive medical treatment and speak with an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer immediately afterward. We are prepared to take your case at once. All you need to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
