What Is a Personal Injury Case?
The civil justice system allows accident victims to seek financial compensation for various expenses that were caused by another’s careless actions or wrongdoing. Common types of accidents involved in personal injury cases include:
Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents
Uber / Lyft Accidents
Foster Care Abuse
Nursing Home Physical Abuse
In most cases, the injured person or surviving family is awarded an amount of money by the person or company legally responsible for causing the accident.

The experienced team at Myers, Widders, Gibson, Jones & Feingold, LLP, has the knowledge and the resources to help you fight for the restitution you deserve. Oftentimes, people find themselves overwhelmed with the complex process of filing their claim, gathering evidence, and presenting it in court. With the help of a talented trial attorney, you will have guidance throughout every step in your journey toward receiving financial help to heal properly.
You’ll be going up against large, powerful insurance companies. They have likely fought and won numerous claims just like yours in the past. Without a legal professional with a proven track record, you will be at a serious disadvantage and almost certainly lose your case. Even if you don’t think you need a lawyer, whoever you are filing a lawsuit against will get one, and you deserve the same level of legal representation as the defendant in your civil suit. Your lawyer fights for you and acts on your behalf, which takes the burden of handling a lawsuit off your shoulders.

Personal Injury FAQ's
I’ve been hurt in an accident and I want to file a claim for my injuries. What’s the first thing I should do?
There are a number of things you can do in the first few days and weeks after an accident to protect your right to compensation should you want to file an injury claim. Except for filing a formal claim against a government entity, there’s no single step that you absolutely must take to obtain a fair settlement, and no set order in which you must proceed. However, the more of the following suggestions you can follow, the more smoothly your claim process is likely to flow.
Write down as much as you can about the accident itself, your injuries, and any other losses (such as wages) you’ve suffered as a result of the accident.
Make notes of conversations that you have with people involved in the accident or the injury claim.
Preserve evidence of who caused the accident and what damage was done by collecting physical evidence and taking photographs.
Locate people who witnessed the accident and who might be able to help you prove your case , and
Notify anyone you think might be responsible for the accident of your intention to file a claim for your injuries.
Is there a deadline for filing a lawsuit to recover compensation for my injuries?
If you have no success reaching a settlement with an insurance company, you may be forced to consider bringing a lawsuit in small claims or other court. But you must be aware of the laws, called “statutes of limitations,” that limit the time in which you have to file. The general statute of limitations in a California personal injury case is two years from the date of the injury. If you miss the deadline, you will lose your right to recover compensation in court, and will be forced to abandon your claim altogether.
