Cases We Handle:

How Much is My Case Worth?

Personal injury case settlements range from just a few thousand dollars to million dollar settlements. The state of California does not have set awards for personal injury claims. Instead, an award is given for each particular injury claim based on a wide range of factors. Some of those factors that will be considered are:

  • How serious the injuries are that have been sustained
  • Whether or not the victim is able to return to work
  • Whether any scarring or disfigurement has been sustained
  • How much pain and suffering resulted

Ways our Sacramento Injury Attorneys Can Help

Car Accidents

Car accident cases are not as cut-and-dry as filing a claim with the insurance company and waiting for a settlement; especially serious accidents that result in severe injuries.

After an auto collision, you’ll be faced with a host of potentially difficult problems, including low-ball settlements from the insurance adjuster, uninsured or underinsured drivers, and potential accusations that you’re the one at fault. To ensure you get the full and fair compensation you deserve, it’s wise to involve an attorney in the process as soon after the accident as possible. Early intervention will better allow for a full investigation of the accident scene.

It will also ensure your legal representation has time to contact witnesses, gather evidence, and fully prepare your case for trial, should it come to that. Not to mention, the statute of limitations in California requires all injured parties in an auto accident to take legal action within 2 years from the date of the accident, so there’s no time to waste!


Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are those that so severely harm a victim that his or her life will forever be changed as a result. When an injury is catastrophic, the assumption is that the person will never again be able to experience life as they once knew it, making the impact on the victim’s life “catastrophic.” Common injuries of this nature include: brain injuries, amputations, permanent disability, disfigurement from burns/scarring, spinal cord injuries, and more.

Because the costs of responding to these injuries are both expensive and lifelong, compensation for victims often totals in the millions or multi-millions of dollars. As such, catastrophic injury cases require extensive investigation, documentation, and evidence to prove the significant loss and consequent costs of dealing with these injuries.

Truck Accidents

Whether you call commercial trucks big rigs, semis, tractor-trailers, or 18-wheelers, the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley can help you file an injury claim after being hit by one.

Trucking companies are notorious for trying to avoid responsibility for accidents caused by their fleet, even when those hurt in the crash are left thousands of dollars in debt due to mounting medical bills and lost wages.

The average truck accident also typically results in a life-changing injury, like a broken bone, brain injury, or spinal cord damage. With so much on the line, you need to know you can trust the legal team representing you.


Personal Injury

Personal injury law was designed to protect victims of accidents caused by someone else’s act, or failure to act. Per the standards established by the American Bar Association, filing a personal injury lawsuit, or tort lawsuit, is done to seek compensation from the negligent/reckless party to be used for the party that suffered loss.

Compensatory damages in these cases can be used to cover the costs of: immediate medical expenses and/or long-term rehabilitative care, loss of income, loss of property, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, pain/suffering, and emotional distress.

In cases involving egregious conduct, damages may also be punitive, with the goal of “punishing” the defendant for his/her actions and, hopefully, preventing similar actions from occurring in the future.

Premises Liability

Property owners are legally obligated to keep their grounds safe for visitors, and when they don’t, they can be held to the laws of premises liability.

These state that all property owners, businesses, and municipalities must maintain their grounds in such a way that all visitors to the property are free from risk of slipping, falling, or otherwise endangering themselves without proper warning.

However, the caveat to these cases is that the injured party must have been an invitee or licensee; trespassers will find it much more difficult to successfully win a premises liability case  
in California.


Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ comp claims are NOT handled the same as a standard personal injury claim. In fact, the outcomes and settlement amounts will look very different. If you were injured on the job, you are legally entitled to workers’ compensation coverage from your employer in almost all circumstances, and we can help make sure you get it.

We can also help you appeal a denied claim if needed. Visit one of our five offices located in Chico, Redding, Roseville, Sacramento or Yuba City to learn more.

Wildfire Property Damage

For the past couple of years, California has faced some of the deadliest wildfire’s in its history, and far too many innocent people have been affected, including some of our very own at the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley. Given our legal standing in the community, we have a unique opportunity to do something about it, and we humbly extend our services to any/all victims of wildfire property damage in Northern California.

How Contingency Fees Work

Many people who’ve been injured are hesitant to hire a Sacramento personal injury lawyer; understandably so. After all, the thought of paying an attorney can be daunting when already dealing with the medical, financial, and emotional aftermath of the accident itself. This is why we offer our services on a contingency fee basis. If we do not successfully help you recover compensation, you will owe us nothing for our legal services.

Our attorney fees are dependent on our ability to recover compensation on your behalf. Even then, nothing comes out of your pocket. Before we handle your case, we will agree on a percentage of the total settlement amount to be paid to our team if/when your case is successfully resolved. By this arrangement, you won’t have to worry about paying if you don’t receive compensation, and you won’t have to make payments afterwards if you win.

Why Negligence Matters in Personal Injury Cases

While many people are familiar with the general concept of negligence, fewer understand the importance of this concept when it comes to pursuing a personal injury claim. In California, your eligibility to bring a claim almost always relies on proving that another person or party acted negligently and that this is what led to your injuries and damages.

Showing that someone else was negligent is important, as it points to who was at fault for the incident and, therefore, who is liable for your damages, including your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. There are very few exceptions to this rule, making negligence a critical component in the vast majority of personal injury claims.
