San Bernardino Personal Injury Attorneys

We all know that life has a way of throwing unexpected curve balls at you. Sudden and unforeseen accidents can happen anywhere and at any time, leaving you to nurse a painful injury and perhaps even rendering you unable to work for a time.

In fact, in 2018, 48 people per 100,000 died in California as a result of accidents. Lasting injuries were much more numerous.

If you were hurt or injured in any way in the San Bernardino area, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced San Bernardino attorney at Oaks Law Firm can review your accident and advise you about what to do next. We’ll help bring your case to court and work to make sure you get what you deserve.

Common Causes of Personal Injury in San Bernardino

Distressing as it may sound, the possibilities for personal injury are virtually limitless. Personal injury cases in San Bernardino can, and commonly do, involve hit-and-run accidents in poorly lit parking lots, complications resulting from botched surgeries, slips or falls on wet surfaces near business premises, poorly placed carpets, or an uneven floorboard that makes pedestrians trip.

Essentially, if you’ve been injured in any way on a public street or on the property of a private business as a result of either negligence or malice, the attorneys at Oaks Law Firm may be able to help you.

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in San Bernardino

If you’ve been injured and believe that you’re entitled to damages, your time to file a personal injury claim in San Bernardino, California is strictly limited by law. Sections 335.1 and 340 of the California Code of Civil Procedure stipulate that you have up to two years from the time when you were injured to file your lawsuit.

There is, however, one special exception to this law that falls under what is known as the “discovery of harm” rule. Side effects from injuries you suffered are not always immediately evident, so California law gives you 2 years from the moment at which you discovered the extent of the harm done to you to file your claim if your injury is the result of:

  • A mishap
  • Accident
  • Negligence

In such cases, medical records proving that the injury was discovered at some time after the accident occurred will become important.

The discovery of harm rule mostly applies in cases relating to medical malpractice, though there are other cases in which it may be applicable as well.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve

If someone else is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for the full amount of damages you've suffered. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, as well as pain and suffering. You must bring forth your claim within one year of the accident date. Not filing your case within one year will bar you from recovery.
