Alameda Personal Injury Attorney

Alameda Personal Injury Attorney

When you are involved in an accident that results in a personal injury, it can be challenging to navigate the aftermath. Determining your next steps while simultaneously attempting to rest and recover can quickly become overwhelming and frustrating. At the Law Offices of Scott Righthand, we have been helping clients through the personal injury claims process for over thirty years. We are dedicated to fighting for your rights to just compensation in the event of an injury in which another party was liable.

Understanding Personal Injury

A personal injury is classified as an injury that was caused by another party’s negligence, meaning that the actions of another party resulted in your injury. Common types of personal injury cases can include but are not limited to: 

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Truck accidents

In the event of a personal injury, your attorney will work to establish the damages that are suffered with the hopes of allowing you to return to the life that you experienced before the accident. Although every injury is unique, some of the damages might include compensation for:

  • Hospital bills
  • Ambulance ride
  • Lost wages due to time off work as you are recovering
  • Outpatient physical therapy
  • Talk therapy
  • Future medical expenses
  • Medical equipment required after the accident
  • Changes to your home in order to compensate for your injuries
  • Lost future earnings

Filing a Claim in the State of California

In the state of California, you have up to two years after the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. While this might seem like a long time, it is beneficial to file your claim as soon as possible after the accident. By waiting, it is often much more difficult to produce the information needed to support your claim. Therefore, if you believe that you have been injured by another person’s negligence, it is advisable to speak with an attorney as soon as you can.
