FAQ's

  • What does “no recovery, no fee” mean?
    A. You see this phrase on many personal injury lawyers’ sites. No recovery, no fee is a universal way of saying that if we do not obtain compensation for you by way of a settlement or verdict, you do not owe your attorney a fee. We also call this a contingency fee, in which the lawyer’s fee is contingent on the outcome of your case. The contingent fee allows you to hire a lawyer without being required to pay anything up front.
  • What is comparative negligence?
    A. In general, “negligence” is when someone else, be it a person or company, commits some form of wrongdoing by acting in a careless or reckless manner concerning your safety and well-being. A prime example is texting while driving, running a red light as a result, and injuring a pedestrian in the crosswalk. “Comparative negligence” takes into account each party’s blame for the accident. If you were five percent at fault, for example, your compensation is reduced by five percent. Comparative negligence is the law in California.
  • What is the statute of limitations on personal injury cases in California?
    A. You can think of a statute of limitations as a time limit on how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. The clock starts ticking on the date of the injury or accident. In general, the statute of limitations on personal injury cases in California is two years. A word of warning: The statute of limitations is not a soft deadline. If you miss this deadline, you will have forfeited the right to try your case in court. Only in very rare circumstances can you get around this deadline. It is prudent to file your case as soon as possible under the circumstances.
