How is a settlement reached in personal injury cases?
A settlement is reached when the defendant agrees to pay the plaintiff a specified amount in order to drop the case. This is usually the case for most personal injury cases – in fact, most injury cases end in a settlement before a suit is even filed.
Because there are several factors that are taken into consideration to determine a settlement amount, it’s difficult to estimate the “average” cost of a settlement. The defendant’s assets, the severity of the injury, and the pain and suffering associated with the incident are considerable factors in calculating a settlement.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in California?
In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. It’s imperative that you pursue legal action within that time frame – should you fail to file a suit, it is very likely you will be unable to have your case heard. Although two years seems like sufficient time, it’s recommended that you contact a trusted personal injury attorney as soon as possible after being injured in an accident.
