Top 5 Sherman Oaks Car Accident Questions

  1. How long do I have to file a Sherman Oak car accident claim? If you are filing a claim (aka personal injury lawsuit) as a result of the injuries that came from your Sherman Oak car accident then you have two years from the day of your accident to get a case filed. Known as the statute of limitations, this is a strict deadline and one that happens quickly for various reasons. 
  2. How long does a car accident personal injury lawsuit take? There is no absolute answer to this common personal injury question because your timeline depends on the specifics of your accident and who the defendant is. Longer cases tend to be those that involve a defendant fighting every fact and the case going to trial. A shorter case is one where the injuries and liability are clear and there is an acceptable settlement in place. 
  3. Who can file a Sherman Oaks wrongful death car accident lawsuit? If this is your situation, we are so very sorry for your loss. Wrongful death cases are devastating and can also be a huge financial fit to a family. For instance, if the deceased was the family breadwinner with years of work ahead of him or her then the grieving family must now find where this source of support will come from. If the deceased was married then it is the spouse and/or children that file a car accident wrongful death lawsuit. Next to file would be the parents and then the siblings.

  4. I did not have any injuries but my car is totaled, what should I do? We help individuals and families when there have been serious injuries or death. If this is not your scenario and you are simply needing to figure out how to work with insurance to get compensated for the vehicle damage, start with the obvious-- calling your insurance company. Generally speaking, you do not need a lawyer to help with your car accident when it has to do with just vehicle damage but no personal injuries. We are always here to help so happy to answer questions you might have about this process too.
  5. How much does a car accident lawyer take? Here's the good news- we take all of our Sherman Oaks personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis meaning that you do not pay a thing out of your pocket until we get you a big check to put in it. Contingency fee agreements are especially great for personal injury lawsuits because they do not place an additional strain on individuals and families that are hit with mounting medical bills, missed work, etc- and we work hard to make sure you get all of that back in your settlement, if possible. Our fees are extremely reasonable-- around 33% of your total recovery and something we are very upfront about from the beginning. Schedule your free consultation with us today to learn more.
