The City of Camarillo is situated a little more than 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles in Ventura County. Although nearly 70,000 residents live in the city, its largest employer is California State University Channel Islands with fewer than 600 employees. What that tells us is that many residents of Camarillo are employed in neighboring communities like Oxnard, Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and Santa Monica.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department provides police services in the city, and the Ventura County Fire Department provides fire protection services. Accidents happen in and around Camarillo, so those services are needed on a daily basis.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does It Take to Settle a Personal Injury Case?
The length of time required to settle a personal injury case primarily depends on the nature and extent of your injuries. A routine neck injury from a rear-end accident might take a matter of a few months.
How Do I Calculate the Value of My Personal Injury Claim?
A close evaluation of liability and damages in your case must be made. Stay away from value calculators that appear on some law firm websites. They don’t consider many of the factors that figure into the value calculation. We’re not going to estimate the value of your case until such time as you’ve been discharged from medical care, and all medical bills and lost earnings records have been fully evaluated.
After You Receive the Check, How Long Does It Take to Get My Net Proceeds?
You’ll need to sign a settlement statement that details where every penny of the gross proceeds is going. You’ll also need to sign the check. We then deposit the check in our client trust account. When funds transfer from the insurer’s bank to our bank, we can write our check for your net proceeds. Think of a time frame of about a week.
