How long do I have to file a claim?

The California statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident or discovery of injury to file a claim.

Am I entitled to compensation?

This depends on numerous factors and can’t be answered categorically. Schedule a free consultation with a personal injury attorney in Riverside from the team at The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates. We can help you understand your options.

Should I accept a settlement offer from my insurance company?

Don’t agree to a settlement before speaking to our firm. We are experienced in these cases and can ascertain whether or not the offer is fair. If it isn’t sufficient, we are able to push your case further.

If I pursue legal action, will I have to go to court?

Most like you will not have to go to court over your personal injury claim. The vast majority of these matters reach settlement pre-trial. But if your case does go to trial, don’t worry: Our team at The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates is experienced and ready to fight for your interests and rights in any scenario.

I don’t think I can afford an attorney. What should I do?

After an accident, you may feel that you are too strapped financially to hire a Riverside personal injury attorney, but this isn’t something you should worry about. At The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates, we operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that unless we are successful in recovering on your behalf you won’t owe us anything. You don’t pay unless we win — it’s that simple! If you do win, our fee will be taken out of your recovery as a percentage. Learn more about contingency fees.
