What Types Of Cases Do Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?

Personal Injury attorneys are lawyers who focus their practice on cases that involve people who have been injured or harmed due to the negligence or intention of another party. These are non-criminal disputes that typically arise when an injured party is seeking repayment for the damages they have suffered. These damages may include pain and suffering, loss of wages, medical expenses, and more.

An injury accident attorney is an expert in the laws of non-criminal injury disputes and can handle injury litigation cases that stem from car accidents, workplace accidents, slip and fall accidents, and more.

Because Personal Injury cases can take on such a wide range of content and scope, attorneys will typically specialize in a grouping of case types.

Consider a dog bite lawyer: This is an attorney who handles cases where injury has been sustained through interactions with pets and other animals. If you have suffered an injury from a pet, it’s important that the personal injury lawyer you are speaking with has particular experience handling that type of case. While you are likely to find an attorney with this specialization, it’s uncommon that they would exclusively take on cases of this nature. The laws that govern dog bite cases (or other cases arising from animal injury) are not as complex as others and tend to fall under the umbrella of larger practice areas as a whole.

For this reason, personal injury attorneys will typically cover a range of personal injury specialties that are related to overarching practice areas. For example, it’s not uncommon for an attorney who generally practices as an auto accident lawyer to offer specific services as a brain injury lawyer or spinal injury lawyer as well.

What Are The Most Common Personal Injury Claims In California?

In California, the majority of personal injury claims arise from motor vehicle accidents.

While traffic collisions are the top cause of personal injury claims across the U.S., California’s high population, geography, and driving culture sets the state apart as a hotspot for these claims. What’s more, car accident lawyers are seeing an even greater rise in auto accident cases with the growth of rideshare apps and services.

The second-most prevalent form of personal injury claims are Slip & Fall Incidents. These incidents are handled by premises liability lawyers because they’re typically the result of negligence in commercial properties.

Other common personal injury claims in California are Product Liability Claims, Workplace Accidents, and Medical Malpractice Suits.

How Much Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Cost In California?

The cost of a Personal Injury Lawyer in California varies greatly depending on factors such as which firm you work with, the nature of the litigation, whether or not the case goes to trial, and more.

Because of how personal injury cases are handled in the state, you will not owe a fee upfront when you hire an attorney. Instead, attorneys will charge a “contingency fee” for their services. This fee is only collected when the case is settled or won. If the case is not won and no settlement or judgment is awarded, the attorney will not collect any fees.

On average, attorneys typically charge a contingency fee of 33.33% of the total settlement amount or judgment awarded by the court. However, this percentage may vary, depending on the attorney and firm that you work with. Additionally, an attorney may charge a lower fee for a case that is resolved in the early stages, with the rate may increase as the case progresses and becomes more complex.

There is no maximum or minimum limit on contingency fees in California. However, the state does prohibit excessive or “unconscionable fees”, which protects litigants from overpayment.

Speaking with an attorney about your case in an initial consultation is the best first step to determine if they will be a good fit for your needs. In your initial consultation, you may discuss preliminary rates, projected or possible outcomes, and what increased rates you may expect should the case become drawn out.
