Personal Injury FAQs

Answered By Berkeley Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal injury covers a wide range of legal situations, ranging from car accidents to product liability cases to wrongful death suits. If someone is injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, the victim potentially has grounds for a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Personal injury lawyers help individuals seek fair compensation for their injuries. From negotiating with insurance companies and healthcare providers to representing individuals in court, experienced personal injury attorneys help clients navigate the often-complicated legal processes surrounding these types of cases.

  • I Have Been Injured in an Accident. What Do I Do Next?

    If you have suffered injuries in an accident, your first step should be to seek medical attention from a licensed medical professional. A doctor can help diagnose the extent of your injuries and start treating them. Even if you do not feel like your injuries are serious, you should still speak to a doctor because some injuries, such as brain injuries, do not make themselves immediately known. Not only is a medical professional important for treating your injuries, he or she can also document the damage that has been inflicted upon you, which could be invaluable evidence for your personal injury claim later on. After seeking treatment, contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer from our firm right away at (510) 876-9500 and schedule a free consultation. We can handle everything from there.
