FAQ’s

Los Angeles, California

How do I know if I have a personal injury claim?

The best way to learn if you have a personal injury claim is by scheduling a consultation at the Manhattan Beach office of Mickey Fine. During this consultation, our Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will gather information about your claim, discuss your rights, and help you determine if you have cause to file suit. If you have a viable case, Mr. Fine will work with a team or legal experts and consultants to investigate your accident, establish liability, and help you determine what your claim is worth.

Are all injuries sustained in an accident eligible for legal action?

When you sustain an injury in an accident, you often have a right to seek compensation through legal action. While catastrophic injuries will result in a larger settlement, even minor injuries may demand more than an insurance company is willing to pay.

In the state of California, you have two years from the date of most accidents to file a claim. However, waiting is never a good idea. Contacting the Law Offices of Mickey Fine as soon as possible after an accident will give us a better opportunity to evaluate your injuries and help you decide on the best course of action.

What if I am partially to blame for an accident?

Events such as auto accidents often involve the actions of more than one person. In California, you may still be eligible to collect compensation even if you were partially to blame for an accident. However, your compensation will be less than in accidents in which you shared no responsibility.

It is important to remember that liability is complex and seldom easily determined. The only way to actually identify the responsible party is through an extensive investigation performed by our Los Angeles personal injury lawyer. Do not admit fault for an accident or discuss what role you feel you may have played with anyone until you have had a one-on-one consultation with Attorney Fine.

Why not just accept an insurance settlement?

Insurance companies are often quick to offer settlements after an accident. They do this because they know if they can convince you to accept their offer, you waive your right to legal action. Sadly, time and again, insurance companies have proven they are more concerned with profits than with people. Insurance settlements are never enough to cover the full range of damages you will face after sustaining an injury.
