Norco Personal Injury Claims Overview
In California, an injury or accident is comprised of the initial incident that then resulted in damages to your property or yourself. In many accidents in Norco, the damages could have occurred to both and an example being an auto accident where the victim’s vehicle was totaled, and the victim suffered serious physical injuries. Injuries from accidents in Norco can be the result of a negligent person, and claims can be pursued. If that negligent person was currently working the claim could be expanded to a business, a governmental agency or more. California law has protections for victims of injury accidents in Norco. These rights are law, but not always considered by negligent parties after an accident. Despite the variety and the potential severity of accidents and resulting injuries, a personal injury lawyer can help you understand your rights, and importantly…protect them.
Time Restrictions for Victims in Norco to File a Claim
With everything in life we typically have some form of time restriction or requirement attached. This is no different with regards to accident injuries and even more crucial to adhere in these cases. The time frames attached to personal injury cases both provide for protection against abuses or warrant-less cases, but can also be a devastation to those who have legitimately sustained injuries caused by another and fail to meet certain time requirements. To protect your ability to pursue a claim you should fully understand the time frames related to your accident and injuries.
Most personal injury claims in California are bound by a 2 year filing window. This time is known to as the Statute of Limitations. The count down on a victims statute of limitations typically starts at the date of the incident. Example: a car accident victim who suffers a traumatic brain injury in Norco…the statute of limitations started the date the auto accident occurred.
Exceptions to the California Statute of Limitations for personal injury claims could be if the negligent party was a government agency or institution. In most of these claims, an initial claim must be filed with the agency for attempted resolution. If the agency does not settle or denies the victims claim, a civil court claim can be filed but the deadline to do so is a mere 6 months. In these situations it is important to have a legal advocate moving your claim forward to avoid missing your opportunity to recover damages. Another example of a claim that can be filed outside of the statute of limitations would be claims where injuries were found or diagnosed after the 2 year filing window. This allows victims who find injuries later to still have the opportunity to attempt to recover compensation. In these cases, California grants victims and their personal injury attorneys 1 year to file claim.
Wow, what more can I say about Justin King other than I am so thankful that I met him!
Justin King is not just a lawyer, he is someone that you can trust. When I first found out that I needed a lawyer for my case, I was a bit weary and quite frankly didn't know where to start. That all changed when I sat down and began talking to Justin. He didn't just glaze over my case, throw a heap of knowledge at me and tell me sign the dotted line. Justin went through every step and explained to me everything that he was doing and what exactly was that was going on. I can vividly remember Justin calling me after my strenuous appointments to see how they went, and helping me in every way possible to not only get through my case, but to help me get better. Justin went above and beyond and not only treated me with respect as a client, but as a human and a friend. I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that if you give this man your trust and your time he will not only help you with your case, but give you the ease of mind and heart that you are being taken care of. Thank you Justin for everything you have done, I can't thank you enough.

I was a passenger in an extremely horrible car accident involving multiple cars and a semi-truck. I sustained the worst injuries out of all the parties involved. I hired Mr. King to represent me for the duration of my case, which was 3 years. During this time, I felt I had made the correct choice in choosing Mr. King to represent me. I would receive constant updates regarding my case. Mr. King would make personal visits to my house and he helped to assist my family in anything that they needed. I felt he went above and beyond his station. I would consider him part of my family now. My entire case was extremely arduous, but I was extremely happy with the final outcome and with everything that Mr. King did for me. I would definitely recommend Mr. King to my family and friends. His integrity, morals and ethics are something to envy.

Not all injuries are a result of an accident. While accidents are more common, injuries from intentional acts can be just as, if not more devastating. Traumatic injuries from accidents can bring their own flood of physical and emotional damage, but combine that with the fact that someone purposely caused those injuries, and victims have a long road to recovery. Victims injured as a result of intentional acts still have rights in California. Those rights include the opportunity to recover compensation for damages. Further, the perpetrators of the act may also face criminal charges and penalties, which in some cases can help ease some of the emotional damage done do victims in Norco.
When a person in Norco has been injured by a defective, or even a dangerous product, claims can be filed. This type of personal injury case is known as a “Products Liability” case or claim. Victims injured by products during the normal course or instructed use are also protected in California. Within these types of cases different parties can be liable for the injuries sustained. The liable parties could be the manufacturer, the designers or even others with the production or supply chain. Products liability cases are difficult to move to completion due to their complexity, so an experienced attorney could make all the difference in your claim.
Negligence, in California, is when a party does not act in a reasonable way that another person would act in the same situation. California laws mandate that reasonable persons will work actively to prevent harm or injury from occurring to others throughout their interactions with others. When injuries happen because someone did not act in this fashion, injury claims can be filed. Damages that can be recovered from an at fault person could be lost income, medical costs, property damage costs and more. Further, injuries that result in death could offer additional options for compensation.
More Information – Negligence Claims for Victims of Norco
As mentioned above, negligence is the most common type of claims when injuries have occurred. There are many procedures and processes in determining the fault and liability of a negligent person in California and most used is the “Reasonable Person Standard”. The courts use this standard to quickly identify negligence and assign fault. This concept also addresses a person’s duty of care and mainly their responsibility to avoid causing injury to others they encounter.
In California negligence claims, several factors and proofs must be met to move towards compensation for injuries and damages. Did the at fault party have a duty to the victim? Was the duty breached? Was the accident and resulting injuries directly a result of the breach? If these statements can be answered with a “Yes”, then injury claims can likely follow.

Resolving Your Claim Could Be By Settlement or Court Order/Verdict
When all of the requirements per California law have been met for a claim, and it is time to work towards recovering compensation, there are two main ways to do so. Option one would be a settlement. This is by far the most common way for insurance companies to close a claim for injuries in California. In many cases insurance companies may make settlement offers very soon after an incident and before a victim has even retained the services of a personal injury attorney. The positive aspects of a settlement are that you know exactly what the payout will be, you avoid court time and the risk of leaving your recovery in the hands of a jury and typically a settlement can happen and be done very quickly.
Option two would be a court lawsuit for damages. This is typically done after the insurance company either makes a settlement offer deemed to low by an attorney, or after an insurance company denies or rejects a claim. Court trials can be beneficial as they can bring more compensation than the settlement, but the potential drawback would be months or years in court, and the risk of not winning or recovering less than the settlement offer.
Each option and the benefits and drawbacks will be unique to the specific case, so understanding the best option is often best left to a qualified personal injury attorney. They can weight the options and inform their clients of all potential outcomes as well as prepare them for either option.
