Personal injury cases in California can involve a wide range of medical ailments.    The most common injuries sustained are neck and back injuries.  These injuries always require careful evaluation due to the fact that severity of the injury is not always apparent from the amount of acute pain and the fact that the injury can become worse over time.   Insurance defense attorneys are well aware of this fact and will often push for rapid settlement to prevent the plaintiff from receiving a full diagnosis and course of treatment.   California personal injury cases can also include more serious injuries such as ruptured, bulging, or herniated discs, other spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, lost limbs, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and even death.

Finding the right California personal injury attorney involves locating someone with experience and compassion who is willing to fight with corporate defense counsel to obtain just compensation for your injuries.   Skilled practitioners will often have existing contacts with a team of medical professionals and other resources to ensure that your injuries are properly diagnosed and presented so that you can achieve the maximum settlement or award after verdict.
