Personal injury law demands that an attorney be knowledgeable as well as tireless in developing an injury claim that maximizes the compensation that an injured claimant can reasonably receive. Settlements and judgments are based on the nature and extent of your injuries and these need to be proved by you and presented in a way that convinces an insurance adjuster, defense attorney or jury that your claim has a certain value. In most personal injury cases, you are entitled to the following damages:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future wage loss
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Spousal claim for loss of consortium
In wrongful death claims, the family of the decedent can claim burial and funeral expenses, lost financial support and loss of the love, guidance, counsel and support of the decedent.
Pasadena personal injury Attorney Richard Jacinto has successfully handled thousands of injury claims over his 30 years of practice. Many injury cases involve disputed or complex issues regarding liability and proving damages. If a municipality is involved, there are notice and filing requirements that differ from the usual injury case. Truck and motorcycle accidents, product liability and slip and fall cases also have different rules and evidentiary principles requiring expanded experience and resourcefulness, qualities found in Attorney Richard Jacinto who has developed and refined them over the years. Claimants who handle their own injury claims often regret it. Studies consistently show that injured victims with legal counsel obtain substantially more in compensation than those who go it alone, even accounting for legal fees.
