We represent clients facing a wide variety of personal injury matters, including:

When it comes to filing a personal injury claim, there is no time like the present. After all, the statute of limitations in California only allows you 2 years to file your claim. After that point, the courts may refuse to hear your case. This is why it’s imperative that you seek medical attention and legal representation immediately following an accident.

We can handle the details of your case so that you can recover in relative comfort. Call (760) 537-4457.

Compensation for Personal Injury Claimants

You could be owed significant compensation for your injuries and losses after being in an accident. Yet you will not see a penny of it unless you take the steps to demand and pursue it. For all the guidance and representation that you need, put Christopher C. Vader PC in charge of your case. We know how to calculate the full damages owed to you, so you don't risk leaving even a dollar unclaimed.

Damages that can add to the value of your claim include:

  • Past and future medical treatment costs
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Pain, suffering, and traumatization
  • Property replacement when applicable

California Pure Comparative Negligence Rule

California is one of a few states that use pure comparative fault rules when considering liability and damages in a personal injury claim or lawsuit. Under this rule, you can demand compensation and make a recovery from any other party that is at least 1% liable for your damages and losses. You can be 99% liable for an accident and still retain the right to file a claim against the other party.

The higher your liability, though, the smaller a recovery you can make. The final recovery amount will be reduced by your liability percentage, so it is crucial to work with an attorney who knows how to use evidence and arguments to keep your liability as low as possible.

Rancho Mirage Personal Injury FAQ

  • What is the statute of limitations on personal injury claims?
    California uses a two-year statute of limitations for most personal injury claims. The statute begins on the date the injury occurred or when it should have become reasonably apparent to the plaintiff. Once the statute expires, you effectively lose the right to bring a claim against the defendant.
  • Can I file a claim if I am partially responsible for the accident?
    You can file a personal injury claim in California even if you were partially responsible for the accident due to the state’s pure comparative negligence rule. You can be mostly responsible for the accident that hurt you and still have the legal right to file a claim.
  • How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
    Personal injury attorneys at our firm accept cases on a contingency fee basis. This payment system doesn’t require you to pay any attorney fees unless we win your case by securing a favorable settlement or award. We don’t win? You don’t pay!
  • Will I get a settlement for my claim?
    Many personal injury claims with a strong argument for the plaintiff or claimant end in a settlement because the defendant doesn’t want to end up paying court costs just to lose. However, some cases do go to court, even if they seemed like they could be settled at first. No lawyer can guarantee that a case will settle or not.
