Catastrophic Injury FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Riverside Injury Attorney
How do I know if I can even file a lawsuit? Whether you can file a personal injury lawsuit will depend on what caused your injury. If your catastrophic injury was caused by another person, whether intentional or unintentional, you may be able to move forward with a personal injury claim. If your injury is work-related, you may be able to file for workers' compensation. A Riverside injury attorney at our offices can help in either of these situations.
If I file a personal injury case for a catastrophic injury, will I have to go to court? Because the majority of injury cases are settled out of court, you most likely will not have to go to trial. However, this may vary depending on your particular case so we recommend talking to a lawyer about your specific situation.
Can an attorney help me find out what my claim might be worth? Yes. An attorney with the proper resources and experience can work with medical professionals, economists and other qualified professionals to determine what amount of financial compensation you should be entitled to. This may vary greatly depending on the extent of injury and impact your injury will have on your life.
What types of damages are awarded in a Riverside catastrophic injury case? There are many different types of economic and non-economic damages that may be considered in a Riverside injury case: medical expenses, lost earnings, future expenses, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and possibly more.
