You were involved in a car accident in California, and you are thinking about bringing a claim or a lawsuit, and you want to know what an attorney looks for in deciding to take your case. Well, I can tell you the things that an attorney looks for because as an attorney practicing here, there are three main things. Here’s what I look for when deciding to take a case: liability, causation and damages. Liability – who was legally responsible for the injuries? Causation – were the injuries that you suffered caused by that person’s legal responsibility and damages? What are the extent of your damages? Not just wage loss and past medical expenses, but the inconvenience, the pain, the humiliation and the suffering.
