Have you or a loved one been hurt because of an act of negligence by another party? If so, our Sacramento personal injury attorneys at Smolich and Smolich are ready to help you ensure the negligent parties are held responsible and that you receive the fair compensation you deserve. We handle cases involving head injuries, back and neck injuries, burn injuries, amputation injuries, and even wrongful death.

Our firm was founded in 1969 with the goal of securing the best possible result for hardworking men and women injured due to the fault of others. Over the years, we have achieved that goal and obtained compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering damages for those harmed by the negligence or intentional acts of others.

You deserve compensation for your injuries. Contact us online or call (916) 571-0400 now to discuss your personal injury claim with an attorney from our team.

Statute of Limitations on Sacramento Personal Injury Claims

If you have been injured as a result of someone else's negligence, it is crucial you act fast and speak with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your compliance with all applicable legal deadlines. Under Section 335.1 of California's Code of Civil Procedures (CCCP), personal injury claims in Sacramento are subject to a two-year statute of limitations which requires injured parties to file a lawsuit with the courts within two years of their accident to preserve their right to seek compensation. This window of time may be even shorter for claims against government entities.

The sooner you contact our attorneys, the sooner we can begin gathering evidence and building a strong case that maximizes your chances of securing the compensation you deserve. Since memories can fade and key evidence can be lost as time passes, it is crucial you do not delay with retaining trusted representation.

Steps to Take After Suffering a Personal Injury

Experiencing a personal injury can be a traumatic and overwhelming event. It is important to take the right steps to protect your health, well-being, and legal rights. Here are some important steps to follow after suffering a personal injury:

  1. Seek immediate medical attention: Your health should be your top priority. Even if your injuries seem minor, it is crucial to get a thorough medical evaluation to ensure there are no hidden injuries or complications.
  2. Document the incident: Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage. Collect contact information from any witnesses who saw the incident. This evidence can be valuable in supporting your personal injury claim.
  3. Report the incident: Notify the relevant authorities about the accident, such as the police or property owner. This creates an official record of the incident, which can be useful when filing a personal injury claim.
  4. Contact a personal injury lawyer: It is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can guide you through the legal process and protect your rights. They can help determine if you have a valid personal injury claim and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
  5. Keep records: Maintain a detailed record of all medical treatments, expenses, lost wages, and any other costs related to your injury. These records will be crucial in calculating your personal injury compensation.

At Smolich and Smolich, our Sacramento personal injury attorneys understand the challenges you may face after an injury. We are dedicated to providing personalized attention to our clients and fighting for fair and full compensation.
