Sacramento Personal Injury

Lawyer Law Firm

Have you been hurt in an accident due to another person's negligence? Are you contemplating filing a claim to receive compensation for the losses incurred but do not know where to begin or how a skilled personal injury lawyer can help you?

If so, you are at the right place. We provide a free consultation with a qualified lawyer at Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer Law Firm and have experts that listen to you and review your case. We take claims on a contingency basis; you will not pay any fee unless you receive compensation.

A common complaint about law firms is that attorneys do not return calls. We do not allow that to occur. All our clients have direct access to our legal team. We regularly email and call clients with news and updates about their accident cases. We understand you and how your injuries have affected your life and will spend quality time with you. We intentionally keep our caseload small so we can focus on our clients.

Over the years, our law firm has been committed to two things:

  • Obtaining maximum compensation for all our clients in personal injury claims.

  • Furthering laws that apply to the cases and how the claims are handled.

We have helped many people in Sacramento receive just compensation for their injuries in various personal injury practice areas throughout the years. Our lawyers strive to find creative and practical solutions to continue our tradition of passionate advocacy and representation. We have also assisted hundreds of plaintiffs in securing millions of dollars in compensation.

The reason we realize favorable results is that we build cases for trial. We begin the process once you contact us. Typically, insurance adjusters know which attorneys are scared of courtrooms and who is not. And the adjuster will use the knowledge to lowball these law firms. Not us. We take personal injury claims to trial and win.

While our history is filled with numerous accomplishments, the one we want to discuss with you is one we are yet to realize, which is your personal injury case. Let us prove how we will achieve it by contacting us today at 916-313-4859.

When you call our office, you will be treated with respect, courtesy, empathy, and compassion; from the friendly receptionist who picks up your call to our skilled personal injury lawyer who will fight for your rights.

Practice Areas



Negligence is an action or failure to act when you owe a duty of care to somebody else.

As a plaintiff, you should demonstrate the following elements to prove the defendant was negligent:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care — Everyone should be cautious when engaging in a task where another person can be injured. For instance, all California drivers must take care of all road users.

  • The defendant breached the duty of care — In California, the breach is established when a defendant violates a law. For instance, a police report can indicate that a driver was following you too closely, rear-ending your car.

  • Causation (the breach of duty caused your injuries).

  • You suffered damages like lost wages, pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, lost consortium, and emotional distress.

Statute of Limitations

A statute of limitations is the deadline for filing your personal injury claim. Generally, the lawsuit is no longer valid once the SOL on a legal case runs out. In other words, the court will not hear the case, and you will lose your right to compensation.

In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two (2) years from the date of the accident. However, some exemptions can extend the timeframe when the SOL clock starts ticking.

Plaintiffs acting legal action against a government employee or entity should file their case within six months and comply with strict procedural rules.

Comparative Negligence Law

In a personal injury case, you seek monetary damages from the responsible party. If the defendant is entirely accountable for your accident, you will receive 100% of your damages. Nevertheless, what would occur if you were also liable for your injuries?

Comparative negligence law is a doctrine that shares fault between parties. The jury will then lower your damages based on your portion of negligence that caused the injuries.

Typically, the judge or jury determines the degree of responsibility.

If the at-fault party claims that your negligence caused the accident, they should establish the following:

  • You were negligent.

  • Your negligence was a significant factor in causing your injuries.

If the defendant successfully establishes the above, your damages will be reduced by the portion of your accountability.

Sometimes at least two parties are responsible for an accident. In this case, comparative negligence law works the same as when there is one defendant. The jury will apportion fault between all parties, including multiple defendants and the plaintiff.

How Long Does It Take to Settle Your Case?

Typically, accident victims and their families ask how long their case will take to close. Most of them want to resolve the matter and return to their daily life as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, there is no exact answer to this question. The duration depends on several factors like:

  • The seriousness of the injuries — Before the damages are fully calculated and your claim's value determined, you need to reach maximum medical improvement. Maximum medical improvement is when the physician believes that you have fully recovered. The more severe your injuries are, the longer it takes to reach maximum medical improvement.

  • Your claim's value — Claims worthy of a lot of money are hard to resolve quickly. The more money involved, the higher the stakes for the insurer and the higher the incentive for the insurance provider to reduce the claim's value.

  • If you choose to resolve the matter through alternative dispute resolution methods like arbitration or mediation, the case can be closed in months. On the other hand, filing a lawsuit can take longer.

Are There Caps in Personal Injury Cases?

Generally, the law does not place a cap on compensatory damages. The jury can award any reasonable and fair amount in the case.

However, medical malpractice cases are an exemption. They have a cap of $250,000 on pain and suffering and other non-economic damages. The limit applies irrespective of the number of defendants and how severe your injuries are.

While punitive damages do not have a cap, the award should not be grossly arbitrary or excessive. Punitive damages are designed to punish the at-fault party for their acting with fraud, oppression, or malice.

Understanding the Lawsuit Process

If you have sustained injuries caused by a negligent party, this could be your initial encounter with an insurance adjuster. The process is complicated and confusing. Understanding the lawsuit process can reduce impatience and stress.

  1. Hiring a Lawyer and Seeking Medical Attention

One essential step you need to take immediately after your accident is seeking medical care. You will receive treatment for the injuries and have medical records of how and when the injuries happened. It can be beneficial when seeking compensation for losses incurred.

You should also consult with a lawyer who will advise you on the available legal options and protect your rights. They will also investigate the accident. Depending on the case facts, it can involve gathering and analyzing evidence like police reports, medical records, surveillance videos, and witness statements. They can also engage expert witnesses.

  1. Demand Letter

The lawyer will draft a demand letter using the collected details and issue it to the defendant's insurer. A demand letter comprises case facts, why you are taking legal action, and demands compensation.

It initiates a negotiation process, and the insurance provider counters the demand letter with a settlement offer. Most personal injury claims are settled through settlement. The likelihood of resolving your case through settlement increases when represented by an experienced and seasoned lawyer.

  1. Filing a Lawsuit

If the insurer refuses to pay a fair and reasonable settlement, your lawyer will file a lawsuit. Generally, this happens when:

  • The fault is disputed, or

  • The insurance adjuster challenges the seriousness of the injuries.

Next, the involved parties move to discovery, where every side seeks details about the matter. Typically, discovery takes the following forms:

  • Interrogatories.

  • Requests for admission.

  • Depositions.

Your lawyer can also engage an expert witness to strengthen the case. For instance, if the fault is disputed, the lawyer can hire reconstruction experts to establish that you did not cause your accident.

Settlement negotiations continue during the pretrial phase. If the involved parties disagree, the judge can order mediation. Generally, a neutral third party will review your case and listen to all parties' arguments. Then the mediator will try to help these parties reach an agreement.

  1. Trial

The injury case will proceed to trial if the parties cannot settle the matter.

Your personal injury lawyer will present an opening statement, followed by the defendant's lawyer. Then the at-fault party will introduce their witnesses and evidence. Your skilled lawyer will cross-examine the defense witnesses. All parties will also present their closing argument asking the jury to find in their favor. Finally, the jury will render its verdict.
