Do I Need a Lawyer After a Personal Injury Accident?

If you suffer a serious injury due to an individual’s or a business owner’s mistake, you may need a skilled attorney to make sure you get the support you need while you recover. An injury like a broken bone, or a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), could result in thousands of dollars of medical expenses, all coming at a time when you can’t work.

When the cost of care skyrockets, insurance companies look for ways to wiggle out of taking responsibility. It’s why a Merced personal injury lawyer is often a necessary safeguard for victims. Your lawyer investigates your accident and has evidence ready when insurance adjusters try to blame you for your accident and or limit the support you receive.

Merced Personal Injury Accident Dangers

The people of Merced are on the go traveling in and out of their city and surrounding communities daily. Residents work in wineries, factories, hospitals, schools, and other various industries available in the valley. This puts the people of Merced in their cars and in many public locations where they can get hurt.

Traffic accidents are the most common way people get injured. A driver on Highway 99 might be going too fast and can’t slow down to avoid a rear-end collision with your car. You or a family member might come away with broken bones or a head injury. California’s Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS) reports there were 1,644 car accidents involving serious injuries in Merced County in 2022.

Many other types of accidents and negligence can result in personal injury. A dog owner may leave a dog off a leash at Fahrens Park and that dog bites you and breaks fingers. A store owner may not monitor the aisles for spills left by customers. If you come along and slip on a puddle, you might suffer months with a hip injury or a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Who is Responsible After a Personal Injury Accident?

When drivers behave carelessly and you get hurt in a crash, they can be held fully accountable for your recovery costs. If a landlord fails to fix a crumbling stairwell at your apartment complex and you take a dangerous fall, the landlord can be liable.

Victims are legally empowered to file personal injury claims due to the “duty of care” California expects from individuals and property owners. This duty means they must act to prevent harm to other motorists, customers, clients, tenants, and visitors. A restaurant owner is responsible for the safety of customers from the parking lot and to their tables and back. The City of Merced may be responsible for providing compensation if someone is hurt in a public building or in a city parking deck.

When landlords, drivers, and corporate chains put others at risk, they should be willing to pay every recovery cost for victims. But unfortunately, their insurance representatives will usually spend more time trying to avoid accepting accountability.

Types of Personal Injuries

While car accidents are by far the most common type of injury accident in Merced, there are other common accidents that can impact our community. Rest assured, Maison Law has successfully represented clients who have been injured in a wide variety of accidents including:

Each injury is different and how the injury happened and where it happened can make a difference in the way a claim is made. At Maison Law, we understand this and work hard for every client to get them the compensation they deserve.

What Our Clients Say

Compensation Available for Merced Personal Injury Victims

Your Maison Law attorney works to secure all evidence available after an accident. This will include surveillance video, witness testimony, and medical documents. But your lawyer can’t be there right after your accident.

If you feel well enough and the scene is secure, try to get photos of the scene. Takes pictures of the cars involved in a traffic collision. Show the obstacle that caused you to fall or injured you at a business or at work. Take photos of any visible injuries too. This powerful evidence will help when insurance companies begin to look for ways to rob you of benefits. 

Your lawyer will include all of this proof in an accident claim as a full list of the hardships you and your family have been put through. Each damage will be critical in increasing the value of your personal injury settlement check:

  • Past and future lost earnings.
  • Costs associated with a long-term or permanent physical disability.
  • The physical pain and emotional anguish you endure.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Loss of consortium (intimacy with a spouse).
  • Reimbursement for the repair or replacement of personal property.
  • The income and benefits victims lose while unable to go to work.
  • Travel costs while visiting doctors and surgeons. The expense of shuttle services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Two years. You have up to two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. But don’t delay. The sooner you turn your case over to an attorney, the easier it will be to gather fresh evidence, secure security footage, and track down witnesses.

First and foremost, call 911. You must ensure your child has access to medical care and that the police file a report of this crash. If your child isn’t significantly injured, you should encourage them to take pictures of the crash site, collect eyewitness testimony, and get the other driver’s name, phone number, and insurance info. Later, you could request the official police report from CHP and speak with an injury lawyer for guidance.

If you feel we can help you earn more for your claim, you won’t need any upfront money to hire Maison Law. We don’t get paid unless we win your case for you. Then our fee comes out of the settlement money you receive.
