Anaheim Personal Injury FAQs

What is a Personal Injury Case?

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.

Why Do I Need an Anaheim Personal Injury Attorney for My Case?

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:

  • Photo or video surveillance of the incident
  • Accident and safety reports related to the at-fault party
  • Statements from eyewitnesses
  • Mobile device data
  • Vehicle or truck “black box” data

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.

What are the Some Common Types of Anaheim Personal Injury Cases?

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:

  • Car accidents

  • Crime or violent attacks

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.

Common Injuries We Help Clients With

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:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head and neck injuries

  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Lacerations

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.

How Much Compensation Is Available For An Anaheim Personal Injury Claim?

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:

  • Medical bills: Anaheim personal injury victims should be able to recover compensation for all medical bills related to their injury. This includes any emergency medical expenses as well as all follow-up doctor visits, physical therapy and rehabilitation, surgical procedures, and more. This also includes coverage of any prescription medications or medical devices needed to help a person make a full recovery.
  • Loss of wages: It is not uncommon for individuals to not be able to work after sustaining an injury. Injury victims should be able to recover compensation for any current lost wages they cannot earn while recovering as well as any loss of future earnings they incur due to a disability. It will be important to establish how long a person will be away from work, their average wage before the incident occurred, as well as any benefits they lose as a result of not being able to work.
  • Pain and suffering: There are various types of pain and suffering losses that individuals can sustain as a result of injury events. This includes physical pain and suffering as well as emotional and psychological pain and suffering. Even though these types of losses do not necessarily have bills or receipts that can be added up, they are very real for the individual.
  • Funeral and burial costs: In the event an individual loses their life as a result of the negligent actions of others, their families should be able to receive compensation for funeral and burial expenses. Funerals can reach high dollar values, and it is important for families to not have to worry about how they will pay these expenses.
  • Property Damage: Individuals often sustain property damage expenses in the incident that caused their injury. This is particularly true for vehicle accidents, where property damage can reach tens of thousands of dollars. However, other property can also sustain damage, including phones, computers, jewelry, and more.

How to Prove Your Personal Injury Case

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:

  1. Duty. The first step is establishing that the defendant (the person who allegedly caused the injury) owed the plaintiff (the injury victim) a duty of care. The duty of care will look different depending on the situation at hand. For example, drivers owe everyone on the roadway around them a duty of care, which means they must operate their vehicles safely in order to avoid injuries and property damage. A duty of care will look different for a property owner because property owners must ensure the safety of their premises for anyone who has the right to be there. These are just two examples, but there are many other situations where duty of care is a factor.
  2. Breach. After establishing that there was a duty of care between the plaintiff and the defendant, it must be shown that the defendant breached the duty of care in some way. Again, this will look different depending on what type of claim we are dealing with. For example, drivers can breach their duty of care by operating impaired or failing to follow traffic laws. Property owners can breach their duty of care for failing to repair broken sidewalks or failing to clean up spills of food or drink on the floor.
  3. Causation. After establishing that there was a breach of duty, it needs to be shown that the breach directly led to the incident that caused the injuries. It is not enough to simply say that someone breached their duty, particularly if it cannot be shown that this breach resulted in harm to another.
  4. Damages. If it can be shown that a breach of duty directly caused a person’s injuries, it must also be shown that the plaintiff sustained some sort of monetary losses as a result of the incident. This can include medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and more.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Cost?

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.

What is the Time Limit to File an Injury Claim in Anaheim?

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.
