5. How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in California?

7. How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?
The duration of a Poway personal injury case can vary based on the complexity of the case, the severity of the injuries, and whether a settlement is reached, or the case goes to trial. While some cases may settle within a few months, others can take more than a year.

8. What if the insurance company offers me a settlement?
It is generally advisable not to accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without consulting a personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies tend to offer lower settlements to minimize their payout. A lawyer can evaluate the offer and negotiate for a fair settlement on your behalf.

9. Can I still file a claim if I was partially at fault for the accident?
Yes, California follows a comparative negligence rule, which means you can still recover compensation even if you were partially at fault. However, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
