Personal Injury Lawyer in Ukiah, California

Ukiah, California personal injury

If another person’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, it is difficult to know where to turn for help and what to do next. You may wonder if the best path forward is leaving the issue to the insurance company involved and simply attending to the important business of recovering your health and well-being. However, this strategy is unlikely to end with you obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled—compensation that covers your losses and full range of damages. If you are coping with injuries suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence, now is the time to consult with an experienced Ukiah personal injury attorney.

Your damages

If you have been injured in an accident of any kind that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you likely face very significant damages, potentially including:

Medical expenses

Your medical costs may include emergency medical treatment at the scene of the accident, emergency transportation from the scene of the accident, and more. Other medical expenses can include surgeries and aftercare, medical treatment from doctors and specialists, prescription medications, physical therapy, rehabilitation services, adaptive physical devices, home health care, adaptations to your home, treatment for secondary physical complications, and much more.

Lost wages

If you have suffered a serious injury, you will very likely miss work and experience a reduction in your income. If your injury is very serious, you could face a diminished earning capacity far into your future, an altered career trajectory, or even the inability to return to work at all. Because many of us closely associate our careers with our identities, such losses can be especially difficult.

Pain and suffering

You have been injured, and that is physically painful, but there your mental pain and suffering needs to also be taken into consideration. Enduring the losses wrought by a serious accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence can be devastating. It is common for the victims of such accidents to experience increased anxiety, depression, emotional instability, and PTSD symptoms. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured, call us. Our experienced Ukiah personal injury lawyers are on your side.

The insurance company

After someone else’s conduct results in your injuries, you may feel like letting the insurance company do its job, working under the assumption that they will fully compensate you for your damages in their entirety. Unfortunately, however, this is rarely how it works. Insurance companies are in the business of turning massive profits, and one of the ways they manage to do this is by cutting corners when it comes to compensating accident victims like you for your losses. In other words, the insurance company is not on your side, and they have a wide variety of tactics at their disposal for obtaining the results they seek, including:

  • Insurance representatives are well-versed at coaxing accident victims into providing recorded statements that negatively affect their personal injury claims. You are not required to provide the insurance company with a statement, and you are well-advised not to do so. As the best personal injury attorney in Ukiah, California, Blair & Ramirez LLP will skillfully negotiate on your behalf for compensation that covers your full range of damages.
  • Insurance companies sometimes forward speedy settlement offers to accident victims who are overwhelmed and, therefore, more likely to accept a less-than-adequate settlement out of desperation. It is in you and your case’s best interest not to accept a settlement offer before you have consulted with an experienced personal injury attorney.
  • Another tactic insurance companies sometimes engage in is delaying the settlement process until the claimant is nearly ready to give up. Once the insurance company has pushed things to this extreme, they are in a better position to push their lowball settlement offers through.
