Grounds for Orange County Personal Injury Claims

orange county personal injury lawyer

As any Orange County injury attorney will tell you, not every accident creates a viable, compensable personal injury claim. To have a personal injury claim that entitles you to compensation, another person or business must have been at fault (or at least partially at fault) for your harm. Another party may be at fault because of intentional conduct, negligent conduct, or strict liability.

Negligence is the most common ground for personal injury claims. A party is negligent when they fail to act as a reasonably prudent person would in similar circumstances. For example, if you slipped and fell and hit your head on a hard floor because a store owner failed to promptly clean up a spill, the store owner was probably negligent and you would have a claim. As another example, if you fell in a resort hotel bathroom shower because the hotel did not maintain the grab bar and it fell off when you used it, the hotel was probably negligent and you would have a claim.

Common Types of Orange County Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases arise in as many different types of ways as one can be injured. The following are some common types of cases our Orange County personal injury attorneys represent clients in:

Orange County Personal Injury Lawyer Frequently Asked Questions

After an accident or incident that results in injuries, many people know they should consider getting an attorney, but have questions about how being represented by an attorney works. The following are answers to the most frequently asked questions we get about working with an Orange County personal injury attorney.

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

A personal injury attorney is a legal advocate that leads and manages your case on your behalf. You will need to help your personal injury lawyer by answering their questions, making certain key decisions (like whether to accept a settlement), and providing requested information, but they will otherwise manage your case so that you can live your life freely.

Civil lawsuits, like personal injury cases, can be lengthy (sometimes spanning multiple years) and complex. There’s an array of documents that need to be prepared, including pleadings, discovery, motions, medical lien agreements, and subpoenas. There are typically thousands of pages of evidence to review. There are negotiations to participate in. There are depositions to prepare for. There is a strategy to develop. There are laws and cases to analyze. There are court hearings to attend. The list goes on and on. Personal injury attorneys handle all of this.

Is It Worth Getting a Personal Injury Lawyer in Orange County?

Yes, it is. Of course, as a law firm, we  may be partial, but that’s because we see the difference in financial outcomes between people who try to represent themselves and people that hire Gomez Trial Attorneys to represent them.

When you work with an experienced and reputable personal injury law firm like Gomez Trial Attorneys, you increase the likelihood of getting better compensation. Further, by working with experienced attorneys who  manage the entire process, you will be less stressed.

How Do I Find the Right Personal Injury Lawyer?

The right Orange County personal injury lawyer is one that has strong legal experience and feels like a good fit for you. We recommend considering the following when deciding which Orange County personal injury lawyer to choose:

  • Legal Recognition. Have attorneys within the firm been recognized for their work, receiving Super Lawyer recognition or other top lawyer awards?
  • Reputation. What is the firm’s reputation in the community? Are insurance companies familiar with the firm? (This latter detail helps with bargaining power.)
  • Case Results. What types of results have the Orange County personal injury attorneys received? A firm’s past results do not guarantee future results. However, these results are helpful in demonstrating the firms capabilities.
  • Years of Experience. How many years of experience do firm leaders have?
  • Focus on Personal Injury. Does the firm focus on personal injury cases? It is typically best to use a firm that focuses on personal injury cases rather than one that takes them on occasionally but focuses on another area of the law.
  • Trial Experience. Does the firm have experienced trial attorneys? Is the firm willing to take cases to trial when it is in their client’s best interest?
  • Who Will Work on Your Case. Will the firm work on your case or farm it out to a different law firm in exchange for a referral fee? This won’t be advertised on a firm’s website so you will need to ask directly.
  • Local Knowledge. Does the firm have experience working in the area’s Superior Court (local) and federal courts? Are the lawyers there familiar with the reputations of judges that they will be in front of and defense attorneys in the area that they will fight against?

When Should You Contact an Orange County Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you have been injured in an accident or incident in Orange County, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Hiring one early will prevent you from making any legal mistakes that could cost you and will allow negotiations to start on your behalf.

Retaining a personal injury attorney quickly is particularly important for cases involving insurance (most personal injury cases). Insurance companies are notorious for trying to take advantage of an unrepresented individual’s lack of legal training with low-ball offers and misrepresentations about what injured persons are entitled to. Using a law firm, particularly one like Gomez Trial Attorneys, which has a reputation for winning cases, will help you get the highest settlement offer possible from involved insurance companies.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost in Orange County?

There is no upfront cost to hiring an Orange County personal injury lawyer. Orange County personal injury attorneys front the costs of personal injury cases, which can be thousands of dollars to over $100,000, depending on the case’s complexity and whether it settles before trial. They also take on the risk of bringing a suit because personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency fee basis which means they only get paid if you recover money.
