Helping Individuals in the Greater San Francisco Region Seek Compensation through Personal Injury Cases

When individuals suffer a serious personal injury in an accident that was not their fault, they are often forced to miss time from work, receive extensive medical treatment, and endure long hours of pain and suffering. Fortunately, all of these damages are legally compensable in California personal injury cases. 

If you are injured in a motor vehicle collision, slip and fall, or another incident that resulted from another person’s negligence, you may be eligible to pursue monetary compensation from the at-fault person and/or that individual’s insurance company. The San Francisco personal injury lawyers at Bogaards Law could assist you with filing your personal injury claim and recovering the compensation that you need. Please contact us to find out more about how we could assist you with pursuing monetary damages for your injuries.  

Making a Claim for Personal Injuries

If you have been injured in an accident that someone else caused, you may be able to file a personal injury claim. To be successful in a California personal injury case, you must be able to demonstrate that the at-fault individual violated a certain duty of care owed to you (e.g., to drive in a responsible manner or to keep the premises safe), and that this neglect resulted in your physical injuries and other damages.

Many accidents can lead to injury claims, including:

Settlement versus Litigation in a Personal Injury Case

A San Francisco personal injury attorney could assist you in negotiating a settlement of your claim. Once you have finished seeking medical treatment for your injuries, your attorney will likely prepare a demand package consisting of all of your medical records, bills, and any lost wage documentation. The attorney will then submit that information to the at-fault individual’s insurance company and attempt to negotiate a settlement. 

In many instances, initial settlement offers from insurance companies are extremely low and need to be negotiated further. You and your lawyer can mutually decide whether a pending settlement offer is worth accepting – or whether you would be better off filing a lawsuit and litigating your case in the court system. 

Litigating a case can be costly, but in some instances, it can yield a better result than what you may be able to obtain via settlement. An experienced San Francisco personal injury lawyer can lend his or her expertise when helping you decide whether to litigate your case and when explaining the likelihood of your obtaining a favorable result in court.
