Take a look below at some common questions we get asked.
When an individual or company is responsible for another’s injuries, strict liability can ensure that that entity is held liable for the injuries the victim sustained. Strict liability is the responsibility for damages or personal injuries, even if that company or person is not at fault. In some cases, manufacturers of products are held to the strict liability if a consumer is injured from a manufacturing or design defect. Your lawyer from Gonzales Law Offices can ensure that the responsible party is held liable for their actions.
Many personal injury claims can be settled without trial. Going to trial is a possibility but is not always necessary. We can negotiate a settlement that ensures that you obtain the compensation you deserve. If necessary, we can take your case to trial to fight for the maximum amount of compensation available. We take whichever course of action is in your best interest.
After involvement in an auto accident, the insurance company will ask you to provide a recorded statement discussing the details of the incident. At Gonzales Law Offices, we encourage you not to comply. The goal of the insurance company is to have you settle with the lowest possible compensation package. Our lawyer can speak with the insurance company to help you obtain the maximum compensation available.
If you are injured as the result of another individual’s negligence, you are only given a certain amount of time to file for compensation. The time limit for an individual to file a lawsuit is called the statute of limitations. In California, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is two years. Product liability and wrongful death cases also have the same time limit. This means that you only possess two years from the date of the accident to file a claim for compensation.
Each individual filing a personal injury claim has a unique situation. As a result, the value of each case will be different from others. Various factors are used to determine what compensation the individual may obtain. Financial losses, emotional trauma, and the victim’s level of involvement in the accident are all factors that may be considered. Other considerations include the type of injuries, the type of incident, and the necessary treatment for injuries.
