Personal Injury: Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need an attorney when the accident was not my fault?
Determining liability is always a key issue that is investigated by the other party's insurance company. You may know you didn't cause the accident, but the other person's story may not reflect what actually happened. You may find yourself fighting the insurance company following your claim being denied. Even when they accept liability, insurance companies often attempt to settle claims for as little as possible. For the compensation you deserve, contact a San Bernardino personal injury lawyer from the Pacific Attorney Group to protect your rights.
How long will my case take to settle?
There is no set amount of time to settle a case. Every accident claim is different and depends on the exact circumstances. For fairly clear cut motor vehicle accidents, a few weeks to months can resolve the case. For some complex cases involving product liability cases or medical malpractice, litigation can sometimes take years. Consulting with our firm to discuss your case will provide you with more information regarding a settlement of your claim.

What is a wrongful death claim?
When someone is killed in an accident or because of medical malpractice or a
defective product, the surviving immediate family may be eligible to file for a
wrongful death claim. When it can be shown that negligence or intentional harm was caused by another, this type of claim provides the survivors with compensation that can include medical expenses sustained prior to death, funeral costs, lost potential earnings and pain and suffering for the family members.
