Tips for Your Sacramento Personal Injury Litigation
The Law Offices of Mark A. Doughty has over thirty years of experience helping victims in need of personal injury settlements in Sacramento. If you are considering personal injury litigation in Sacramento, here are some tips:
- Ask your Sacramento injury attorney about contingency fees. A contingency fee arrangement is when your attorney does not collect payment unless he or she obtains an injury settlement in Sacramento on your behalf. This is the basis on which the Law Offices of Mark A. Doughty typically operates.
- Do not assume that you cannot collect a personal injury settlement in Sacramento. Certain individuals make the mistake of thinking that they are ineligible to collect a Sacramento personal injury settlement because of the type of injury suffered, or the way it was sustained. The truth of the matter is that any injury severe enough to impact your daily life — and that was obtained due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another person — can be the basis for successful injury litigation in Sacramento.
- Consider whether you may be eligible to pursue mass tort injury litigation in Sacramento. Mass tort litigation allows numerous individuals who were harmed by the same person or organization to pursue a lawsuit as one entity, often resulting in larger settlements or awards.
Common examples of personal injuries in Sacramento resulting in substantial settlement amounts include accidents involving automobiles, trucks, big rigs, and semi tractor trailers. One reason these types of incidents result in large settlements or awards is because they have the tendency to cause serious, permanent injuries to their victims.
Another reason that victims may receive sizeable compensation for injuries caused by such accidents is that numerous parties can be found at fault. Drivers, mechanics, loaders, parent companies, and even road maintenance crews may all play a part in causing the accident, and therefore can all end up contributing to the Sacramento injury settlement of the victim.
