Guidance In Personal Injury Matters
Accidents can cause expensive property damage and medical bills. You may wonder about your options for bringing a lawsuit to recoup costs for repairing/replacing property or paying medical bills as well as money to help you and your family cover other costs like household bills if you aren’t able to work.
At Sacino, Bertolino & Hallissy, APC, we are experienced in various areas of personal injury law, including motor vehicle accidents, boating accidents, wrongful death and more. We can answer your questions and let you know what to expect in a personal injury suit.
How do I know if I have a case?
The best way to know for sure if you have a case is to contact a lawyer. However, you may have a case if you were in an accident and the other party or their insurance company won’t cover costs that only exist because of the accident. Even if you aren’t sure who was at fault or think you may have been partially at fault, a lawyer can discuss your options with you.
How long do I have to file in California?
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases is only two years from the injury. If you didn’t know that you had an injury at first, the limit is one year from the date you found out about the injury. This is one reason why it’s always so important to contact a lawyer if you even suspect that you might have a case. Your time is very limited.
How much does a lawyer cost?
Personal injury attorneys work on contingency. This means that they do not bill their clients until and unless the case is won.
