After an accident, it is important that you focus on getting the medical care you need as soon as possible. However, once you are stable enough, you should discuss your rights and options with a San Francisco personal injury lawyer. The right lawyer can help with the following and more.
Identifying liable parties – In order to seek compensation for your losses, you must identify who should be held responsible for your injuries. Sometimes, it is an individual, such as another driver. However, companies can also be liable for personal injuries, including manufacturers, stores, trucking companies, construction companies, nursing homes, employers of negligent employees, and others. Determining the right parties to file claims against can be a difficult process.
Calculating damages – Many injury victims add up their medical bills and assume that is the value of their claim. With legal assistance, you may learn that your claim is worth significantly more. A skilled personal injury attorney can accurately calculate your damages, which may include payment for past and future medical expenses, past and future lost earnings, pain and suffering, permanent disabilities of disfigurement, mental trauma, or wrongful death.
Insurance claims – The personal injury process generally begins with insurance claims against the insurers of the parties liable for your accident. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with, however, and they often work to challenge valid injury claims. You should never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first discussing the claim with an attorney, as these settlement offers are usually far less than you deserve. A lawyer can handle the entire process and negotiate the payment you deserve for all of your past and future losses.
Personal injury lawsuits – Insurance claims are not always sufficient to obtain the payment an injury victims needs, especially in cases involving particularly severe injuries. In these situations, the right lawyer will know how to prepare and file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. The litigation process is complicated, but your attorney should handle every aspect of the case, including negotiations to reach a favorable settlement agreement. If no fair agreement is reached, you want an attorney who knows how to zealously represent you at trial.
After an injury, you are likely consumed by your pain and suffering, limitations, financial concerns, and many other stresses. You may put off contacting a San Francisco Personal Injury Lawyer because you want to avoid any additional stress the legal process may bring. It is important to realize that a personal injury law firm should fully take over the insurance and legal process, relieving that stress from you. The sooner you contact a San Francisco accident and injury attorney, the sooner they can begin standing up for your rights.

Nick came across as genuine, thoughtful and dare I say it for a legal presence: friendly! Perhaps needless to say, Nick is now my 'go-to' person when I have a legal matter I need sorted out. Or at least to make sense of. He may rue the day he ever was so generous with his time and advice, but I for one am most grateful for it!

Everyone at the Cartwright Firm is very likeable. The attorneys and staff are kind, thoughtful, and sincere. They helped walk me through the entire process and were patient when explaining the legal jargon I didn't understand. It is clear they not only really care about your claim, but care about making sure you understand whats going on. Can't recommend them enough!
Rob Cartwright and Jack Bollier helped me win a claim against the City and were as professional, courteous, whip-smart and clever as you could ever want. It was pretty amazing in both my deposition and arbitration to see them both in action. Highly recommended!!
