Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
In every personal injury case, it is highly recommended to first retain an attorney before proceeding with any options for compensation. It may be tempting to represent yourself in a case, especially if it seems fairly straightforward. However, even simple cases can quickly turn complex in the eyes of the law, and the proceedings can become stressful and frustrating even to legal professionals.
This is especially true if you have been seriously injured and are still recovering. A lawyer can handle all the legal work so that you do not have to do so while in a hospital bed. They ensure that there is someone advocating on your behalf for maximum possible compensation – while you are focusing on healing and recovery.
Additionally, an attorney can act as your buffer for communication, negotiating and speaking with other parties on your behalf. This prevents possibly uncooperative and/or contentious parties from making your life difficult. It also can ensure that you do not receive unfair, lowball offers from insurance companies looking out for their own best interests.
Ultimately, an attorney is there to be your trusted support and help during a time when you may not have anybody else who is fighting for you on your side.

What is the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims in the Inland Empire?
If you have been injured in an accident, it is crucial to file your claim as soon you can. Like other states, California has a strict statute of limitations on personal injury claims – a time limit on valid claims. In California, the general statute of limitations on personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury or accident.
However, it is important to note that there may be some exceptions to this rule. For example, California also has a “discovery” rule that may extend your statute of limitations in some circumstances. In cases where a discovery rule applies, the time limit starts when you first discover the injury or illness – or would have reasonably discovered it. This is often applied to cases where the appearance of injuries or illnesses is delayed, such as in medical malpractice cases, but it may apply in other situations as well. It is best to consult with an attorney before filing your claim to ensure you have enough time to file your case.
