    Make sure to seek medical care for your injuries. Your personal injury attorney will obtain the police report for you and establish liability. Most personal injury attorneys will also handle the property damages claim for you. The only thing you and your friend should be concerned with is getting medical treatment. You leave everything else to your personal injury attorney. The statute of limitations in California for bodily injury is two years and for property damages three years....

    To determine the amount of compensation that each individual may recover Will depend on the extent of injuries sustained by each Individual. It sounds like your parents sustained serious injuries. A personal injury attorney will need to review all the medical records and also determine if there will be need for future care/Damages. That being said, it is premature to put dollar amounts on compensation. It is Also important to find out the insurance coverage amount of the other party. If...

    In California, if you were the not at fault driver, you may recover economic damages (e.g., medical bills, loss of earnings, property damages, etc.) but unfortunately you can't recover non economic damages., e.g., pain and suffering (Propesition 213). However, your son may be entitles to both economic and non economic damages if he was the passenger). I recommend that you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Most personal injury attorneys (including our firm) represent...

    Even if you didn't have your drivers license at the time of the accident you're still entitled to claim damages. Both for property and personal-injury. Contact a personal injury attorney as expeditiously as possible so that they can handle both the property damages and personal injury claims for you. Most personal injury attorneys (including our firm) work on a contingency fee basis. That is, if there's no recovery, there's no fee. Best of luck!

    I definitely recommend that you contact a personal injury attorney for a free consultation. If you are still injured you should definitely continue seeking medical care. Also, if your case is accepted by a personal injury attorney, the personal injury attorney can arrange medical treatment for you on a lien bases. That is, you will be able to pay the doctor back at the end of your settlement (out of your settlement proceeds). That way, you'll be able to obtain medical treatment without...

    Based on the information provided it sounds like the other party is 100 percent at fault. Is the other party's insurance carrier contesting liability? Are damages being contested? We definitely need some additional facts. What stage is your case in? Mediation is held to help facilitate settlement. Please feel free to contact our firm for a free consultation or anyone of the personal injury attorneys listed this site. Best of Luck!

    You should contact a personal injury attorney and allow him/her to handle the claim process against any and all possible defendants. I would recommend that you avoid giving a statement to the insurance carriers and allow your attorney to handle the statements. Your attorney should also help you handle the property damages claim. Most personal injury attorneys (including our firm) represent accident victims on a contingency bases (that is, if there is no recovery, there is no fee). Most...

    You can always sue the other driver and owner of the vehicle for both physical/mental injuries as well as property damages (for either repairs of the vehicle or total loss value). However, it would make more sense to initiate a claim through their insurance company and attempt to resolve both your bodily injury claim and property damages claim without immediately filing suit. Should the insurance carrier fail to adequately compensate both you and your sister for physical/mental injuries and...
