Palmdale Personal Injury Lawyer

REQUEST A FREE CONSULTATION

Palmdale is a relatively affordable city with good school districts and plenty of entertainment for business professionals and families alike. However, in the midst of all the positive attributes to be found in Palmdale is also the risk of being injured in a number of ways, whether in a motor vehicle accident on the streets of the city, as a result of a property hazard at a commercial, public, or private property, or more. These accidents can leave people injured, unable to work, and facing extraordinary expenses as the result of someone else’s negligence.

If a negligent motorist or property manager has caused you to become injured, you can seek compensation through California’s personal injury claims process. This process generally involves first seeking compensation through a relevant liability insurance policy held by the at-fault party. If the at-fault party’s insurer fails to pay the claim, it can be filed in court within two years of the date of the injury as a personal injury lawsuit. An experienced Palmdale personal injury lawyer can help you with this process.

Your Injury Causing Accident

Which Types of Accidents Are Covered by the Personal Injury Claims Process?

Personal injury law is a wide umbrella of different types of accidents, and most personal lawyers concentrate their services on a few types of accidents.

Here is a look at some of the types of accidents our clients at Kash Legal have been injured in.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

SR 14 is part of the California Freeway and Expressway System and provides an essential route through Palmdale that is used not only by commercial trucks delivering products and supplies to the area, but also by commuters.

Like many roadways in California, SR 14 and the other roads around Palmdale are often congested and frequently the site of motor vehicle accidents that can include cars, trucks, motorcycles, and—on some area roadways—even bicycles or pedestrians as well.

 

Premises Liability Matters

Those who control commercial, public, or residential properties in Palmdale are legally obligated to perform regular inspections on their property in order to search for hazards that could cause injuries to guests. If these hazards are found, the individual or entity that controls the property must promptly mitigate them and provide prominent warnings of hazards that have yet to be repaired so that guests know to avoid them. 

Some of the types of accidents that can occur due to premises liability include:

Failure to repair property hazards can result in an accident where someone is injured and give rise to a personal injury claim.

Wrongful Death

In most circumstances, people have a legal responsibility to take reasonable actions to avoid causing injuries to others. On the roads throughout Palmdale, for example, the reasonable actions drivers take to avoid harming others generally involve driving their vehicle safely and legally. Those in control of Palmdale properties can take reasonable actions such as inspecting the property, repairing known damages, and providing items such as locking doors, surveillance cameras, or even keeping their pets secured to avoid causing injuries to guests.

Unfortunately, the same negligence that can result in an injury can also result in a wrongful death. A wrongful death claim can be filed in California by family members including the decedent’s spouse, surviving children, or grandchildren (if the decedent’s child is also deceased) in order to seek compensation for the financial and psychological impact of the loss.

How Can an Attorney Help You With a Palmdale Personal Injury Claim?

One of the most important attributes an experienced Palmdale personal injury lawyer can provide for their clients is guidance. The personal injury claims process can be quite overwhelming to navigate on your own, particularly without experience and education in the law or a knowledgeable team to assist you in gathering the documents and evidence to prove your claim or an understanding of what amount of compensation is needed to fairly compensate you.

In addition to experience, a Palmdale personal injury attorney and their legal team can provide services such as:

  • Determining who is liable and the insurance they have that can compensate you.
  • Establishing a value to your claim based on the severity of your injuries, the potential of permanent injuries that will impair your ability to earn an income, and the out-of-pocket expenses you incurred as a result of the accident.
  • Communicating with the at-fault party’s insurer about the claim, including negotiating a settlement on your behalf.
  • Filing a personal injury lawsuit in court before California’s two-year personal injury statute of limitations in order to ensure that your right to seek compensation through the court process is intact.
  • Gathering the evidence and medical documentation needed to prove your claim and justify its value.
  • Preparing your case for trial and presenting it to the judge or jury.
  • Assisting you in collecting the compensation you received through the process at the conclusion of your claim.

A personal injury lawyer will be able to guide you through this process step-by-step while you focus on your recovery.

Affording the Services of a Palmdale Personal Injury Lawyer

Many people attempt to navigate the personal injury claims process on their own because they don’t believe they can afford a personal injury attorney. However, these worries are needless, due to the contingent fee billing method that many personal injury lawyers use. This billing method allows you to hire an attorney, receive their services, and wait until the successful conclusion of your claim to pay them. Here is how it works:

  • When you decide to hire an attorney to assist you, they will ask you to enter into a contingent fee agreement. This agreement will outline the services to be provided and will designate a percentage of your award to be paid to the attorney at the conclusion of your claim.
  • Because the attorney did not require money upfront, they are able to begin working on your claim immediately without worrying about whether you’ve paid. Work can continue throughout the case without you having to worry about staying current on the attorney’s bills.
  • At the conclusion of your claim, the proceeds of your settlement or court award will be sent directly to the attorney, who will deposit these funds into a trust account.
  • From the trust account, your attorney will satisfy any medical liens placed on the award and will withdraw the agreed-upon percentage for their payment.
  • The attorney will meet with you to finalize the case and will turn the remaining compensation over to you at that time.

A quality lawyer will take care of this entire process for you, so you can focus on what matters during this time.
