Why Choose Us for Your Injury Attorney?

Choosing the right law firm to handle your California personal injury claim is one of the most important decisions you will make after an accident. The amount of money you receive in compensation can vary based on the skills, knowledge and experience of your attorney. There are many personal injury attorneys in California, but none as experienced or dedicated to providing affordable, client-centered services to injured clients in our community.

A California injury attorney understands that you are facing many expenses in the aftermath of an accident. Medical bills, treatment costs and lost wages are common expenses in personal injury cases. To help alleviate your financial stress during this difficult time, we offer free initial case consultations and advance all of the costs associated with filing your claim for damages. Each case is accepted by our firm on a contingency basis, meaning we do not get paid unless we win you compensation.

We believe that accident victims are entitled to the best legal representation possible. Our attorneys and support staff provide the highest level of client-centered services in each individual we represent. Each California injury attorney at our firm is dedicated to maintaining availability over the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, listening to your questions and concerns, visiting your home, office or hospital to meet with you, assisting you with obtaining the medical care and therapy, providing open and honest dialogue about your expectations, and working to get you the highest amount of compensation possible.

Our attorneys have successfully interacted with thousands of insurance companies on behalf of our clients, always maintaining professionalism when negotiating settlements and pursuing trials. We have an advantage over other California injury attorneys because we have experience working directly with insurance claims adjusters. This inside information about how personal injury claims are evaluated has earned our firm a reputation for obtaining favorable settlements in cases that other attorneys refuse to handle.

We represent clients who have been injured in all types of accidents throughout California. We have the experience and resources necessary to handle complex cases that are often turned down by other firms.

Dedicated. Trusted. Compassionate.

Our California Injury Attorney Answers Your Top Questions

If you have suffered a personal injury, we know you have a multitude of questions regarding your ability to collect the compensation you are owed. At Banafshe Law Firm, P.C., our personal injury attorney is here to provide you with the guidance and representation you need.

A personal injury case is a legal case in which one party is seeking monetary compensation from the other for injuries caused by a third party. The individual bringing the case is termed the plaintiff, while the party from whom compensation is sought is the defendant. Personal injury cases are torts, which are cases in which a remedy is sought for a legal wrong. Usually personal injury cases are brought for injury accidents allegedly caused by the defendant’s negligence.

Our personal injury services are offered on a contingency fee basis, meaning you never pay us any upfront fees and we advance all costs. We stand behind our promise that there will be no fee unless we win. This guarantee assures our clients that we will provide zealous advocacy that results in the best outcome possible. If our client does not receive any compensation, neither does the firm.

We advance all case costs. Advanced cases costs come with the same promise — if our client does not receive any compensation, we do not seek reimbursement from our client and we bear the loss.

At the heart of every injury claim are two issues: liability and damages. Did another person cause you to suffer an accident or injury? Did that injury result in damages? If your answer to these two questions is “yes,” then the next issue is to determine to what extent the person that caused the injury is liable and the amount of damages that occurred due to that liability.

The amount you receive in compensation for your personal injury depends on many different factors. The extent of the injury, the amount of your medical bills, loss of income (both past and future), loss of property, loss of enjoyment and consortium, and emotional distress are all issues that will be considered when determining the amount of monetary damages that will be awarded. You may also be entitled to collect punitive damages if the behavior that caused your injury was conducted in a malicious or grossly reckless manner.

Just as important in determining the amount of compensation you receive is the quality of the injury attorney who represents you. To collect maximum benefits, you are encouraged to use the services of a skilled personal injury lawyer who has the experience and skill necessary to secure the money to which you are entitled.

The short answer is yes. The long answer is as follows:

The legal term “comparative negligence” means that both the plaintiff and defendant share some culpability for the accident. Your settlement will be adjusted using a formula to determine compensation based on the percentage of fault that is applied to both parties. For example, if you are 25% at fault for the accident, the defendant will be liable for 75% of your damages.

If you have suffered a personal injury in California, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit is two years from the time the injury accident occurred. In some instances the statute of limitations is temporarily stopped. For instance, if the injury victim is a minor, she is not legally entitled to file suit until she turns 18. The two year limit then would begin on her 18th birthday.  If you have been involved in an accident call a Los Angeles injury attorney immediately.

The length of time it will take to resolve your personal injury case and receive your money depends on your specific set of circumstances and whether your case is able to be settled or must proceed to trial. No matter the situation, it is expected that the insurance company will make a “lowball” offer for settlement. While you may be in dire need of financial help, it is imperative that you do not accept an offer to settle your case for less than it is worth. An experienced personal injury lawyer with a track record of successfully representing personal injury claimants will be able to provide you the guidance you need to determine exactly what your case is worth and advise you as to when you should settle and when you should proceed to trial.

Not until you speak with a personal injury attorney.  Insurance companies will offer you significantly less than the actual value of your case to make the case go away before you have the opportunity to treat your injuries, which you may later find to be more serious.  Only under very limited circumstances should you settle your case with an insurance carrier prior to being released from your treating physicians care.

To assert your legal rights!  Do not represent yourself against an insurance company and their attorneys in your personal injury case.  You need to hire a personal injury attorney to represent your interests against tactics insurance companies have in place to pay you as little as possible.  Just like any other for-profit business, which most insurance companies are, an insurance company’s loyalty is to their shareholders, their goal is to increase profits, and it is common practice to undervalue your case.  Personal Injury Attorney Payum Ryan Banafshe of Banafshe Law Firm will protect your legal rights and obtain the best possible outcome in your case.  All personal injury cases are no compensation, no attorney fees.
