Accidents are sometimes hard to avoid. Fortunately, California provides a basis for redress when a negligent act causes an injury. When a personal injury results from a car accident, fall on defective property, a dog bite, malpractice by a health care provider, or some other negligent act, our legal system permits an action against the responsible party or entity. Monetary damages are typically given as compensation for a personal injury, but other damages may be available. Establishing negligence, causation and damages are essential requirements for any successful resolution of a personal injury action, and at Nye, Stirling, Hale & Miller, we’ve been litigating personal injury cases for thirty years.
Some cases resolve early after one or two letters, while others require a lawsuit and jury verdict to resolve a personal injury claim. At Nye, Stirling, Hale & Miller, an experienced trial attorney will handle your case from the initial interview to final settlement or judgment. We do not employ associates, and will never have your case handled by an attorney without significant experience in the field. If you have sustained a personal injury and want to discuss your case, or simply need advice about the appropriate initial steps, please give us a call. We only handle personal injury cases on a contingency basis, so you will never be asked to pay for a consultation, and once your case is accepted, you will never get billed for asking questions or meeting with your attorney.
