These injuries have the ability to affect a person’s entire life. In many cases, victims of personal injuries need extensive medical care and are not able to work while they recover. Sometimes, victims are permanently disabled. These injuries can affect the financial livelihood of a personal injury victim and their family, especially if a person is not able to work due to their injuries. Contact our law firm to help you during this difficult time.

What Is the Statute of Limitations on Santa Ana Personal Injury Claims?

California law does not give injury victims an infinite amount of time to file a personal injury claim. If you are considering filing a lawsuit in Santa Ana or anywhere else in the state of California, you must file by the state’s deadline, also known as the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in California is two years. You must file your claim within two years of your accident or injury. Failing to do so will likely result in the courts throwing out your personal injury claim and you will not be able to recover financial compensation for your injuries, regardless of how serious they might be.

How Do You Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Claim in Santa Ana, CA?

When filing a personal injury lawsuit in California, the burden of proof falls on the injured party, or plaintiff. Because of this, it is extremely important to work with a knowledgeable Santa Ana injury attorney to handle your lawsuit while you focus on recovering from your injuries. Your lawyer will have the experience needed to prove negligence and ultimately, convince a judge or jury to side with you based on the facts of the case. There are four elements of negligence that your attorney will need to prove in order to successfully obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf:

  1. Duty of care. The defendant (person at fault for your injuries) must have owed you (the plaintiff) a legal duty to exercise reasonable care when you were injured.
  2. Breach of duty. The defendant intentionally or carelessly breached this duty by doing or not doing something the average person would do in a similar situation.
  3. Causation. Your Santa Ana personal injury lawyer will need to prove that the defendant’s breach of duty was the cause of your accident and injuries.
  4. Damages. Your attorney will also need to prove that you suffered damages because of the defendant’s actions or inactions. (i.e. hospital bills, lost wages, etc.)

An attorney with years of experience handling personal injury lawsuits will know how to build your case in a way that achieves maximum compensation. At Callahan & Blaine, our Santa Ana personal injury attorneys understand the ins and outs of filing a personal injury claim in Santa Ana, CA.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Charge?

At Callahan & Blaine, your Santa Ana personal injury attorney will not cost you anything unless he or she is able to obtain you a financial award. Like most personal injury law firms in Santa Ana, CA, our firm operates on a contingency fee basis for all accident and injury claims. This means we only charge our clients for our legal services if we win their case. Rather than paying out of pocket, you will pay your lawyer directly out of your settlement or judgment award, which will be a pre-agreed upon percentage. Contingency fee agreements allow us to offer high-quality legal representation at an affordable cost to our clients.
