Injuries can lead to significant setbacks for victims. In an ideal world, any person injured due to the careless or negligent actions of another individual or business would receive prompt compensation for their losses. Unfortunately, that is not how this works. At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, we are here to help if you need an Anaheim personal injury lawyer by your side. Our Anaheim personal injury attorneys have vast experience handling complex injury claims in Anaheim and throughout California, and we are ready to help you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
An Anaheim personal injury claim is a civil case that involves two or more parties. The party filing the lawsuit is the injured victim, also known as the plaintiff. The plaintiff will file a lawsuit against the person, business, or entity alleged to have caused the injury, also known as the defendant.
Not all personal injury claims necessarily become civil lawsuits. It is not uncommon for a personal injury claim to be resolved through a settlement with an insurance carrier before a civil lawsuit becomes necessary. Even if a lawsuit is filed, the two parties often come to an agreement where the case settles before a jury trial becomes necessary. However, if the two parties are unable to reach an agreement, the case will have to go to trial.
Injury victims often lack the resources necessary to stand up for themselves, particularly when going up against major insurance carriers and well-funded at-fault parties. However, a skilled Anaheim personal injury lawyer will level the playing field against these other parties. A personal injury lawyer can use their resources and legal expertise to uncover any evidence needed to prove liability. This can include, but is not limited to, the following:
Additionally, an injury attorney will ensure their client is evaluated by a trusted medical professional and help properly calculate their total expected losses. Finally, an attorney will vigorously negotiate on behalf of their client to reach an out-of-court settlement while also preparing to take the case to trial if necessary.
At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, our attorneys have decades of experience helping clients who have sustained injuries in a variety of ways. Our Anaheim accident lawyers regularly handle the following types of cases on behalf of injured clients:
This is certainly not an all-inclusive list of the types of cases that we handle, and we strongly encourage any injury victim to call one of our offices for a free consultation so we can help determine the best steps forward for their case.
At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, our Anaheim personal injury lawyers have helped hundreds of clients successfully resolve their claims through settlement or jury verdicts. Our legal team has experience helping clients who have sustained a range of injuries, including the following:
Additionally, our attorneys recognize that not all injuries that our clients sustain are visible traumatic injuries. We also know that injury victims can sustain significant emotional and psychological trauma as a result of what happened to them. This can include feelings of fear, anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The goal of our Anaheim personal injury attorneys is to secure full compensation for our client’s injuries, including the visible ones and the unseen injuries. We also know that there are times when personal injuries lead to the death of a victim. In these cases, our compassionate Orange County wrongful death attorneys are standing by to help family members and estates stand up to the at-fault party in order to recover the compensation and closure they are entitled to.
There is no set amount of compensation available to personal injury victims in Anaheim. Rather, the total compensation a person receives will vary depending on several factors. This can include the severity of the injuries, the level of property damage, how much income a person loses, whether or not there was any shared fault, and more.
Our attorneys are regularly able to help clients recover both economic and non-economic damages in these situations. This includes:
Proving a personal injury claim can be challenging. Anaheim personal injury victims often have to stand up to aggressive insurance carriers and well-funded at-fault parties, but an attorney will assist them and have their back throughout this process. In order to properly secure compensation in these situations, an injury victim and their lawyer will need to show that the other party was negligent, and this comes with certain elements that must be proven:
At DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo, our team handles Anaheim personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. This means that our clients do not have to worry about paying any out-of-pocket or upfront costs while their case is ongoing. Our team handles all of that. Additionally, clients will pay no legal fees until after we successfully recover the compensation they are entitled to. A contingency fee percentage will be agreed upon before we begin working on the case, and our legal fees will be paid out of a final settlement or jury verdict.
Injury victims in Anaheim need to be aware that they have a limited amount of time to file their claims. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the day the injury occurs. If an injury victim fails to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party within this two-year timeframe, they will lose the ability to recover the compensation they deserve. Please understand that this two-year window does not apply to any deadlines put in place by insurance carriers. Typically, insurance carriers require that injury claims be made very soon after an incident occurs, or they will delay or deny the claim altogether.
