Personal Injury FAQ

PERSONAL INJURY

WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

Personal injury cases fall under civil law. Civil matters have a different burden of proof, which is the obligation to prove the claims that are being made against a defendant.

In criminal cases, the standard is “beyond a reasonable doubt,” however in civil cases, the burden of proof is lower. In personal injury cases, the burden of proof is based on “the preponderance of evidence.” This means that the evidence presented is “more likely than not” that the plaintiff's claims are true, and that the defendant was responsible for causing the injury.

To have a successful personal injury claim, you must prove that you were injured, and that someone else caused those injuries through their negligence. You will need evidence to show how the accident happened, who was responsible for it, and the extent of your injuries. A personal injury attorney is needed to gather the evidence and fight on your behalf. Hiring an attorney puts you in an advantageous position to pursue your claim rather than attempting to pursue a claim by yourself.

If you have been injured in Orange county or Los Angeles county due to someone else's negligence, you need a skilled personal injury attorneys who are prepared to fight for you and get you the compensation you deserve!

Our accident attorneys at Accident Network, are not afraid to take your case to trial if the settlement offered by the insurance company is less than what you deserve. In some instances, where the insurance company is not taking your personal injury claim seriously, trial may be the most effective way to ensure that the insurer pays you the full and fair compensation you deserve.
