Harrison | Kristopher, LLP Assists Injured Concord Residents Obtain Justice

Concord, California may not be as famous as nearby San Francisco or Los Angeles to the South, but this does not mean the nearly 120,000 residents of Concord are immune from terrible and traumatic events such as car wrecks, slip and fall injuries, medical malpractice, and other personal injury incidents. These events can cause indescribable financial, physical, and emotional harm and cripple you and your family.

Harrison | Kristopher knows and understands this reality, and is dedicated to assisting injured Concord residents in navigating the civil recovery process. If another person is to blame (even in part) for causing you or your loved one to suffer injuries, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation from this person. Harrison Kristopher can help you accomplish this goal quickly and effectively.

Who is At-Fault in My Concord Personal Injury Case?

Determining who is at fault for causing your injuries in your Concord personal injury accident is critical to knowing what rights to recovery you may have. In California, a person who causes injury to another person is generally held responsible for paying the monetary losses and expenses incurred by the injury victim as a result of the accident.

Moreover, a person does not need to have intentionally caused injury to another in order for that person to be held responsible for the results experienced by the victim. It is sufficient if the person acted negligently (or carelessly) or recklessly and in so doing caused the victim’s injuries. A person acts in a careless manner when a judge or jury finds that a reasonable individual placed in the same situation would not have acted in the way the person behaved. Reckless conduct is often found to have occurred where the person knew or should have known that there was a considerable risk that the victim may have suffered harm if the person continued in his or her course of conduct and the person chose to continue with his or her behavior in spite of the risk.

In California, an injury victim is able to recover compensation from an at-fault party even if the victim him- or herself is also partly to blame for causing his or her own injuries. Thus, for Concord personal injury victims it is not only important to establish who is at fault in causing the injuries but also in establishing the extent of that person’s responsibility in causing your injuries. Doing so gives you, the injury victim, the greatest possible chance of recovering full and fair compensation.

Aren’t Concord Personal Injury Attorneys Expensive to Hire?

One persistent myth about personal injury attorneys that keeps many people from speaking with a lawyer following a serious accident or injury incident is that it is prohibitively expensive to retain an attorney. While some law firms may charge large, up-front fees to handle your case or will bill you for every phone call or e-mail, Harrison Kristopher is different. We are focused on and committed to your recovery, not making a profit.

In Concord personal injury cases, Harrison | Kristopher works on a contingency-fee basis. This means that there are no upfront attorneys’ fees or retainers that you must pay. Instead, we will get to work on your case right away and help put you on the path to your legal recovery. If we are successful in helping you recover compensation for your injuries, a reasonable portion of your award will be retained as payment for the services we rendered to you. If we are not successful in assisting you, you do not owe any attorneys’ fees. We believe this arrangement allows you to remain focused on your health and your family and not on how you will pay for quality legal counsel and representation.

Can’t I Just Handle or Settle My Case By Myself?

Just because you suffered an injury and associated expenses and believe another person is responsible does not mean that recovery of monetary damages is guaranteed. Between your injury accident and the time your case is resolved through a settlement or judgment, however, there are many legal tasks that must be completed in a timely manner in order for your case to advance. Failing to properly respond to a legal motion filed by the opposing party (for example) doom your chances of experiencing any recovery for your injuries. Or (for instance) failing to document all of your past and reasonably-anticipated future injuries at the outset of your suit can limit the amount of compensation you ultimately receive.

Rather than risk your recovery and your and your family’s financial security by pursuing compensation in your case yourself, trust Harrison | Kristopher to handle all aspects of your personal injury recovery claim with skill and tenacity.

How Long Do I Have to File a Concord Personal Injury Case?

In Contra Costa county, California statutes govern the length of time you have to file a claim for compensation following an injury accident in Concord. In most situations, you must file your claim within two years of the date of your injury accident or else you will not be able to recover any compensation at all for your injuries and losses (no matter how severe or extensive).

While there are certain exceptions to this rule in the case of injuries that are not immediately apparent or detectable, it is better and wiser to retain counsel early and file your claim for compensation as soon as is practical. Not only does filing your personal injury case in a timely manner ensure you are able to pursue your claim, but it also increases the likelihood that evidence and witnesses needed to prove your claim can be more easily found.
