How To Choose the Right Attorney for a Riverside Case

There are many law firms in the Riverside area that may be able to help you. But some firms have a greater track record than others and are a better bet to make sure you get the maximum compensation that you deserve.

The following are some of the points you should look for in the best injury attorneys:

  • Make sure you work with a personal injury lawyer who has recent experience handling cases similar to yours.
  • Your initial consultation should always be free.
  • The law firm should work on contingency with a no win no fee promise. That means that the lawyer will not be paid unless they win for you.
  • The firm should have extensive experience in and around the Riverside area. This means they will know the local courts, clerks, and other legal agents. Local knowledge cannot be underestimated.
  • Longevity is important. All attorneys have to start somewhere, but working with an experienced firm can give you greater peace of mind at a difficult time.
  • A law firm with a great success rate.
  • It is also important to work with a law firm with the resources to take your case as far as it needs to go. This may mean going to trial if necessary.
  • If your case does go to trial, you need to work with a firm made up of trial lawyers; attorneys who have handled trials and won before.

We firmly believe that working with Bisnar Chase offers you the best chance of success with your injury lawsuit in Riverside. We fulfill all of the criteria above. Our firm has been in business for more than 43 years, winning in excess of $700 million for victims and their families.

Does Your Accident Fall under Personal Injury Law?

How do you know if you can file a personal injury lawsuit after an accident?

A personal injury claim is recognized as tort law. It gives an accident victim the opportunity to hold wrongdoers responsible for the damages and losses they have faced. The wrongdoer is the party that is held accountable for the injuries, usually causing the accident through an act of negligence.

There are two important factors that need to be proven in a personal injury claim. The first factor is that the negligent party had a duty of care for the victim. For example, a driver has a duty to ensure that they travel safely on California roads to ensure the safety of others around them, while a property owner would have a duty to make sure conditions are safe for visitors. The second factor is that the at-fault party failed in that duty of care through careless or reckless actions.

Start by contacting an attorney who will be able to review the facts of your case and make sure you get the superior representation that you deserve.

Common Accidents in Riverside, CA

Some of the most common types of incidents that result in personal injury claims include:

  • Car accidents: Traffic accidents, in particular crashes involving cars both in parking lots and on open roads, are the most common cause of injuries in Riverside County. If you have been injured in a car accident or in any other kind of road collision that causes injury, we can help.
  • Slip-and-fall accidents: Property owners are responsible for the accidents and injuries that occur on their property. Victims of slip or trip and fall accidents may seek support for their medical bills and other related losses.
  • Premises liability claims: A slip and fall is one kind of premises liability accident. But there are other forms too. If you have suffered any kind of injury due to unsafe conditions on another person or company’s property, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
  • Defective product claims: Product manufacturers are legally obligated to make products that do not harm consumers when used correctly. When a product is defective, be it a faulty auto part or a dangerous drug, the manufacturer can be held accountable for any injuries and losses.
  • Dog bite claims: Under California law, dog owners are financially responsible for the actions of their pets that result in injuries. California’s strict liability statute requires that dog owners be held financially responsible for injuries caused by their pets.
  • Pedestrian accidents: The CDC has reported that every year almost 6,000 people are killed in crosswalk collisions. Distracted driving is a particular danger to pedestrians, and drivers must be off their phones and always remember that pedestrians have the right of way.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Motorcycle accidents in and around Riverside County can be deadly, due to the high speeds and poor visibility of riders at times, as well as the inattentiveness of other drivers on the roads.
  • Truck accidents: When trucks collide with other vehicles or crash into stationary objects it can have disastrous consequences. These vehicles are very large and heavy and have the potential to cause extreme damage.
  • Public transport accidents: Accidents and injuries can be suffered on all kinds of public transport, including buses and train accidents. There are several potential negligent parties in such cases; trust an experienced attorney with your claim.
  • Bicycle, e-bike, and hoverboard accidents: Users of bicycles, electric bikes, scooters, and hoverboards could all suffer injuries. In some cases, an accident might be caused by product faults, in other scenarios they might be caused by a collision.
  • Workplace accidents: When an injury occurs in the workplace you might be able to take legal action against the employer or a number of other parties, such as a property owner. Contact an attorney to find out more about your options.
  • Employment cases: In addition to injury cases, Bisnar Chase handles a wide range of employment cases. These include wage and hour claims, wrongful termination, harassment, whistleblower, misconduct, and much more.

If you have suffered harm due to someone’s careless actions, seek legal representation from a personal injury lawyer in Riverside, CA. Our attorneys will make sure you are properly compensated.

Medical Treatment After You Are Injured

If you have been injured, it is critical that you seek medical attention right away. Getting prompt treatment and care will not only create a medical record for your case, but it will also give you the best shot at a speedy and complete recovery.

If you refuse medical care, the insurance adjuster who takes your case may claim that you were not really hurt. It is best to prevent that challenge by documenting your injuries as soon as possible. If emergency personnel offer you medical attention at the scene, it is highly advisable to accept it. If not, make sure that you go to an emergency room or see your doctor right away.

At Bisnar Chase we handle cases involving all kinds of harm, from relatively minor injuries to catastrophic and life-changing injuries and even fatalities.

We have won cases involving injuries such as:

  • Cuts and bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal damage
  • Muscle and ligament strains and tears
  • Burn injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Fatal injuries

These are just some of the cases we take on. Contact us now for a free consultation to find out if we can help you. We will handle every element of your case while you focus on recovery.

Dealing with Insurance Companies After an Injury

If you have suffered an injury, dealing with an insurance company is often the first step, and this can be extremely stressful. Here are a few useful tips to remember before discussing your injuries with an insurance adjuster:

  • Be prepared: Before even picking up the phone you should have your notes in front of you. If you contradict yourself while discussing your injuries, the validity of your claim will be called into question. Refer to your notes and stay on point.
  • Understand your rights: You have the right to refuse the insurance company’s request to record the phone call. Tell them upfront that you do not consent to be recorded. Any statement you make during such as conversation can be used against you. File a claim as soon as possible. According to the statute of limitations, accident victims have two years to file a personal injury claim.
  • Talk to your injury attorney: Having the right kind of lawyer on your case is imperative in winning. An attorney that does not specialize in accident and injury law will not be able to recognize the signs that can help win your case in or out of court. When possible, we recommend contacting our Riverside injury attorneys before speaking to the insurance company. Let an expert handle all negotiations for you.

Never Rush into a Settlement

Do not accept the insurance company’s first offer, even if you are tempted to take it and move on with your life. Insurance adjusters often offer inadequate settlements to make these cases go away quickly. Their adjusters are trained to make lowball offers to help protect their bottom line.

Once you accept a settlement, your claim will be closed and you will no longer be able to pursue any further support for your losses. Instead of accepting your first offer, discuss how much your claim should be worth with an experienced California personal injury attorney.

Do not let them rush you. Take expert advice and take your time to make the right decision for you.

What is an Injury Case Worth in Riverside?

Want to know how much you could win in an injury lawsuit? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question. No two cases are the same and compensation will depend on a variety of economic and non-economic factors.

Those listed below are just some of the factors that will influence a settlement or verdict:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Costs involved with ongoing care and rehabilitation
  • Compromised ability to work
  • Lost quality of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of consortium

Speak to our personal injury lawyers to make sure your case covers the full impact of your injuries, ensuring the best possible financial result.

What Will a Riverside Injury Attorney Do For You?

Many people are advised to hire a lawyer after an accident but have no idea what a law firm can do for them, or how the whole process works. Filing a lawsuit has to be the right decision for you. But this is specifically how the process works, and how our team will work with you to achieve the best possible outcome in your case:

  • Free consultation: When you call or email Bisnar Chase, you will speak to one of our intake specialists. They will assess the merits of your case, provide support and guidance, and consult with an attorney.
  • Gather evidence: Our team will work with you to gather the elements you need to build a strong case. 
  • File paperwork: Legal paperwork can be a minefield. We are here to make sure the proper forms and documentation are submitted to the correct courts in a timely manner.
  • Negotiate: The first step is usually to engage in negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company or defense team. The other side will have experts handling their negotiations, and you should too.
  • Constant contact: While some lawyers have earned a bad reputation for being hard to contact, we have a policy to keep our clients up to date at every stage of their case. If we negotiate a settlement offer, we will discuss it with you and provide advice and guidance.
  • Go to trial: If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we can go to trial. This means arguing your case in front of a judge and jury in civil court. Not every firm or lawyer is equipped to do this, but at Bisnar Chase we have the experience and resources to take your case as far as we need to in order to get the best outcome.
  • Appeals: Once a verdict has been passed, there may be appeals and challenges that prolong the legal process. Our team will provide representation as long as you need it.
  • Collection: Whether you win compensation through a settlement that is agreed out of court or a jury verdict, we will help you with the collection of your funds.

Above all, we are here to help. If you are unsure about any part of the process when it comes to filing a personal injury lawsuit, please do not hesitate to contact us for free advice with no obligations.

Riverside Injury Claim FAQs

We want you to feel comfortable leaving your case in our hands. If you have questions, we are here to answer them. And if your question is not answered below or elsewhere on this page, do not hesitate to give us a call.

Some people try to go it alone when it comes to filing a lawsuit, but it is tricky and time-consuming, and very difficult to negotiate with experienced professionals who are working to limit your payout. Working with an attorney is the best way to make sure you are properly compensated while taking the burden off your shoulders and allowing you to focus on recovery.

Most personal injury cases must be filed within two years of the accident date, according to the California statute of limitations. There are occasional exceptions, but it is better to act sooner than later.

This one depends on the individual case. Your injury case could be settled very quickly, or it could take weeks, months, or even years in extreme cases. We are not here to make promises that we cannot keep, but we will work to make sure you get the right outcome as soon as possible within the circumstances of your case.

There is no set figure when it comes to personal injury cases in Riverside. Each claim is taken on its merits, and it is up to your attorney to build the best possible case and secure top dollar for you.

We work on contingency. We will cover the expenses required to win your case so that you will not face any out-of-pocket costs. According to our no win no fee promise, we take a pre-agreed percentage of any settlement or verdict, and you keep the rest. If we do not win, you owe us nothing.

Bisnar Chase Reviews

Bisnar Chase has been amazing with me through my lawsuit. I felt real compassion for my case and I was given their very best to make sure I was well taken care of. In addition to the great service given during my case, Bisnar Chase helped me get my son to his invited USA Football Team camp in Texas. They immediately offered to help fund the trip and are so supportive of his journey. I felt Kristi is just as excited for him as I am with this opportunity. Kristi has been an absolute delight to talk with. Bisnar Chase is more than I ever expected I could get in an attorney. I would recommend them to anyone!

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.

Bisnar Chase Google Review

Great people in this office, everyone was really helpful explaining everything. I was referred by my aunt for my car accident in October and the case went pretty fast. No problems and very professional. I was kept in the loop thru the whole process and was able to get a better settlement than my insurance company said I would. I can’t really compare them to other law firms because it was the first time I had to use an attorney, but my bad experience with the car accident was handled as well as I could have hoped.
