If you’ve been injured in California because someone else was negligent, state law entitles you to monetary compensation for your medical expenses, your accident-related lost wages, and your other losses. However, simply because you are “entitled” to compensation doesn’t mean that you will actually receive it. In Southern California, an injured victim of negligence will need legal help from the right Orange County personal injury attorney. The Gibson & Hughes legal team fights diligently and effectively on behalf of our personal injury clients in Orange County and throughout Southern California.
We also represent consumers injured by defective or dangerous consumer products, and we represent surviving family members who file claims for wrongful death after the loss of a loved one due to negligence. An Orange County personal injury attorney with Gibson & Hughes can offer you honest, reliable legal advice and tenacious, effective representation. We will handle all aspects of your injury or wrongful death case, and we will insist on the maximum amount of compensation that’s available. For example, if you are injured by a negligent driver in a traffic crash, contact us at once. An accident attorney will negotiate on your behalf with the other driver’s insurance company for a just and fair resolution to your injury claim.
If you are injured on another person’s property because of the property owner’s negligence, you’ll also need advice and representation from Gibson & Hughes. When a California property owner fails to repair broken railings or stairs, to mop up spills, or to fix cracked or uneven pavement, the owner may be held liable if someone slips, falls, and sustains an injury. When you sustain an injury on another person’s property because of negligence, a personal injury attorney with Gibson & Hughes will question witnesses, compile evidence, and take legal steps to acquire the compensation you will be entitled to under California law.
If someone else’s negligence – in traffic, at work, or in some other accident situation – is the cause of your injury, do not sign any insurance papers, provide a statement, or agree to any settlement with an auto insurance company before you’ve met with a California injury attorney from Gibson & Hughes. Do not accept a first settlement offer. If you do, you’ll waive the right to take more legal action or seek more compensation. First offers are typically for “low-ball” amounts. Let a lawyer with Gibson & Hughes negotiate a more generous settlement of the claim.
When Gibson & Hughes handles your personal injury claim, you pay no attorney’s fee until and unless we acquire an out-of-court settlement or a jury verdict for you. Your initial legal consultation comes without obligation or cost, so put our considerable experience and legal skills to work on your behalf.
