It is Never Too Soon to Get Our Personal Injury Law Firm Involved in Your Case
Because your accident occurred in San Jose, it is subject to the state of California’s statute of limitations. CCP § 335.1 defines the amount of time you have to file your lawsuit — generally two years.
The best way to understand the filing deadline and meet the window of opportunity to file a lawsuit is to let our legal team take care of it for you.
What You Need to Know About Financial Liability
The state’s personal injury laws allow you to assign financial liability to the liable party or parties in your case after you prove their negligence. The four legally required elements of negligence include:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
Our personal injury law firm’s familiarity with state and local law means we know how to document these components. We will build your case file and submit it to the at-fault party and their insurance provider in a timely and organized fashion.
Your Evidence Collection Can Lead to a Monetary Settlement
The evidence we collect for your case file generally runs along two tracks. One type of evidence proves the cause of your accident. It can include:
- The accident report
- The incident report
- Medical records
- Your written prognosis
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Accident reconstruction
- Witness statements
- Expert testimonials
The other collection of evidence we obtain will prove the costs of your accident. It can include your medical and rehab bills, proof of income, and vehicle repair or replacement costs. You can leave this potentially overwhelming task to us. We take care of compiling evidence and building your case file.
