When you’ve been seriously injured in Sacramento, the type of injury or accident matters less than the fact that negligence played a role. There are thousands of ways a person can be injured. If someone caused your accident because of his or her failure to take your safety into account, it’s very likely you have a viable Sacramento personal injury case.
The following are some of the more common types of personal injury cases we handle:
Any kind of injury can qualify you to pursue personal injury compensation in Sacramento, as long as you suffered damages and your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence. Here’s a list of serious injuries that are often involved in Sacramento personal injury claims:
Following a personal injury in Sacramento, you can pursue compensation for your losses by suing the at-fault party. That could be a person, but it could also be a company, an organization, or even a government agency in California or Sacramento. In many cases, the party you’re suing will have an insurance company to protect it from financial liability.
For example, if you’re seeking compensation from a negligent driver following a serious car crash, that driver’s insurance company will likely be the one to pay for your damages. If your personal injury was caused by the negligence of a business, the business will likely also have an insurer you must negotiate with to recover compensation.
In either case, if you attempt to negotiate with insurance companies on your own, chances are you won’t come out on top. Insurance companies have attorneys and adjusters who will do everything they can to lower the value of your claim. They have a variety of tactics to accomplish this goal, such as placing blame on you.
One way to prevent them from winning is having a legal team of your own. Your Sacramento injury injury lawyer can negotiate for you, and we can even handle all communications on your behalf. We won’t let them take advantage of you, and we will do everything we can to ensure you don’t have to accept an unfair settlement amount.
You’ve been seriously injured in Sacramento, and that means you’ve suffered financially due to your injuries. You obviously have medical expenses from your accident, and those alone can be a daunting financial obstacle to overcome without compensation. You may also have suffered many other financial losses because of the carelessness of another person.
You may currently be unable to work because your personal injury has prevented you from doing so; you may be paying for the costs of mental health treatment due to trauma from your accident; or you might be paying for caregiving services because you’re in need of help while you recover from your injuries.

You can call our office anytime to get your free case review, but we’ve listed a few common questions we receive regarding personal injury, along with their answers, to get you started.
In Sacramento and California, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of your injury. If you attempt to file after that date, your case will likely be thrown out. In some cases, such as with claims against the government or medical malpractice cases, the time frame is shorter. It’s often best to get started on your personal injury case right away.
In most instances, there is no case too small for an attorney to assist with, as long as you’re trying to recover compensation for damages caused by a negligent party. We are happy to discuss the details of your case during a free consultation.
Most people would like to stay out of the courtroom if at all possible, and in most cases, your claim can be settled out of court through negotiations. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, however, your Sacramento injury lawyer won’t be afraid to fight in court on your behalf.
When you’ve suffered because of another person’s negligent actions, don’t let that carelessness go unpunished. You deserve fair compensation for your medical expenses and other personal injury losses. A qualified and experienced attorney at Crowell Law Offices is ready to help you.
