Riverside Personal Injury Lawyer
With mild weather, numerous annual festivals, and the focus of local law enforcement in recent years on reducing crime, Riverside provides plenty of safe activities to keep its population and its visitors busy. However, even in a place where fun abounds, accidents happen.
Many people don’t think about needing a personal injury lawyer until they have been injured and need compensation to assist with their recovery.
If you were injured in an accident in Riverside that someone else’s careless or reckless actions caused, you are entitled to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Read on for more information about personal injury law and how the team of Riverside personal injury lawyers at Garcia & Phan can help you seek accident-related damages.
What Does A Riverside Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
Some individuals, after becoming injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, choose to attempt to navigate the legal process of pursuing compensation without an attorney. This is almost always a mistake, as attorneys possess specific knowledge and skills that can greatly improve their clients’ potential for recovering fair compensation through a personal injury award or settlement.
Some of the services that Garcia & Phan Attorney can perform on behalf of their personal injury clients include:
- Providing thoughtful guidance to help their clients understand the legal options available to them through the personal injury claims process.
- Determining a value for the case based on the client’s out-of-pocket expenses and the impacts that the injury has on the client’s life.
- Filing legal paperwork in the proper jurisdiction within the legally-mandated time frame.
- Carefully examining the facts of the case to identify all potentially liable parties and all insurance resources the client might access to provide compensation.
What do I do after an accident?
If you have experienced serious injuries after an incident, seek medical attention right away. Even if you believe that you did not suffer a major injury you should still be examined by a medical professional. Some symptoms from an injury such as a concussion do not appear until weeks or even months later. Make sure to keep all medical documentation as well. This can be helpful later for your personal injury case. Once it has been confirmed that you have suffered from an injury, immediately after, file a claim through your insurance company. The insurance representative that is handling your claim will then speak to an adjuster to discuss the compensation that you may receive. Remember that most of the time the job of the negligent party’s insurance company is to provide you with as little compensation as possible for your losses. You should not have to settle for any amount that will not cover the costs for your medical bills, lost wages or mental anguish.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?
The value of your claim will rely on the nature and extent of the injuries, damages and losses you have sustained. For example, if the incident resulted only in property damage or in minor injuries such as scrapes or bruises that did not require you to seek medical treatment, then your case may not be worth much. However, if you did suffer injuries serious enough to require hospitalization you may be eligible to receive much more in terms of compensation. Negligence is also a crucial element in a personal injury case, which might affect the amount of compensation you receive.
What Evidence is Needed to Win a Personal Injury Case?
Winning your case is our ultimate goal. In order to do so, your personal injury attorney will build the strongest case possible. It is best to support your legal claim with as much relevant evidence as possible.
One of the first things a personal injury victim should look to do once they are no longer in danger is to compile as much evidence as possible.
These are some of the items which can prove most useful:
- A clear account of the incident, including the location, those involved, what happened, the time it occurred, etc.
- Medical records and documentation of your injuries.
- Witness statements and their contact information.
- Photos and or videos of the incident, injuries, those involved, etc.
