What Is a Personal Injury Case?
A personal injury case is a civil action in which an injured party strives to secure compensation for damages sustained by the actions of another party, the defendant. Personal injury law relies on the existence of negligence in a claim. Another party failing to act with reasonable care in a given situation or uphold a duty of care in relation to the injured party is negligence. For example, a driver’s duty of care is operating his or her vehicle safely and abiding by the traffic laws to prevent a car accident.

How Much Does a Santa Ana Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?
Most personal injury attorneys offer contingency-fee billing; the attorney only collects legal fees when he or she wins a case for a client. At Bentley & More, LLP we promise no upfront fees during your initial consultation and we strive to make every aspect of our client billing practices as transparent as possible. This helps ensure potential clients can afford representation when they need it most and only owe legal fees when they secure compensation.
Steps for Filing a Personal Injury Claim
The first step in filing a personal injury claim is contacting an attorney. Attempting to navigate the complex court system without legal counsel could be detrimental to your case. Your attorney will serve a complaint to the defendant in your claim and help you manage the response. An initial complaint may lead to a settlement offer and an easy resolution, or the defendant may attempt to fight the elements of your complaint or even countersue.
An attorney can help you navigate these issues as they arise and prepare you for trial. Contact Bentley & More, LLP today to schedule your free consultation with a Santa Ana personal injury lawyer, and we can let you know what to expect from filing a lawsuit.
