What happens if I am injured in an accident while visiting California?
California is a popular destination for people across the country and all over the world. Whether traveling here for business or pleasure, millions of people visit the state every year. California boasts the scenic Pacific Coast Highway, historic sites, world class beaches, resorts, and amusement parks and exceptional entertainment and sporting events. While most visitors enjoy their time here, some inevitably are injured in accidents, and that’s when the good times end.
Getting the proper treatment is crucial, but while on the road to recovery, many accident victims will face physical, emotional and financial burdens. If you are injured in an accident while visiting California, you have the same legal rights to obtain compensation as a resident of the state does. The law firm of J&Y routinely represents out-of-state accident victims who were injured in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, San Bernardino County, San Francisco County, Sacramento County and all of California.
Our firm is widely regarded by our clients and peers as the premier personal injury law firm in California. Through many years of practice, we have gained the experience and legal know-how that are necessary for successful injury claims. We routinely collaborate with attorneys who represent out-of-state clients injured while visiting the area.
Whether you were injured in a car, bus, limousine, pedestrian, or train accident, or in a slip and fall at a hotel, restaurant, or other public location, our personal injury attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. When you engage the services of J&Y, you never pay any up-front fees and we only get paid if your case is successful.
While it will be necessary for you to appear in the state for a deposition and a medical exam by a doctor selected by the other party, our experienced attorneys will handle all the local matters so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. We can assist with making arrangements for you to return and stay in California to give your testimony or for the physical examination. Even though you don’t live in the state, we will offer you a superior level of personal service and promptly return phone calls and emails and keep you up-to-date about your accident case.
We will effectively manage your case by collecting and preserving any evidence and identifying and interviewing witnesses. Our experienced attorneys will protect your interests locally and be your advocate before the insurance company involved in your case. If the insurer does not make a fair and reasonable settlement offer, we will aggressively fight for you in the courts. Our goal is to hold those who are responsible for your injuries accountable and to obtain the maximum possible compensation for you.
If you live outside of California and have been injured while visiting, you must act quickly because the statute of limitations to bring a claim is 2 years from the date of the accident. Don’t let your injury spoil your visit to our beautiful state. Call the law firm of J&Y today at (888) 806-6722 for a free evaluation of your case.
