Have you or a loved one been injured at Moffett Field or in Santa Clara County? If so, you may be entitled to legal compensation if your accident and injuries were caused by another party’s negligence or legal wrongdoing.

Whether we reach a fair settlement offer or obtain a successful verdict at trial, we always keep the needs and best interests of our clients in mind.
To this end, here are a few key facts to know about personal injury lawsuits and why your claim may be worth far more than you realize.
California Personal Injury Victims Often Deserve Significant Compensation
Federal research tells us that there is an estimated amount of nearly $1 trillion in accident costs every year nationwide. Nearly 60 percent of that figure is based on an accident victim’s reduced quality of life, pain or loss of life altogether.
If you are an accident victim, know that you are likely entitled to far more than what you are offered by the insurance company. Their offer is intentionally low, but it will be tempting enough that you may want to impulsively sign the settlement without talking to an attorney.
If you have serious injuries, such a settlement will not give you the money needed to be made whole and live the life you deserve to have after a tragic accident. With our help, you can have a strong legal case based on a fully investigated accident that will help you receive a genuinely fair settlement offer that gets you the money you need long-term.
This is important for any accident victim, but it is perhaps especially meaningful for California accident victims. The state of California does not place a limit on damages for personal injury victims, which effectively means our attorneys can fight to maximize the value of your legal claim.
Waiting Too Long to File a Claim May Waive Your Right to Legal Compensation
Even if you are entitled to legal compensation based on California law and the facts of your accident, this does not mean you are guaranteed to see compensation. California’s statute of limitations says that most accident victims have two years to file a claim after their accident.
Accident victims who wait longer than this two-year period run the risk of losing their right to file a claim and receive deserved compensation altogether. So, the time to act is now if you have been injured in an accident and are considering a lawsuit against potentially responsible parties.
