Frequently Asked Questions

Personal Injury Attorney in Sacramento, CA

The aftermath of an accident can be an overwhelming and difficult experience, one filled with uncertainty and uneasiness. I, Ross Nott of Ross Nott, Attorney at Law, wish to lend a helping hand to injured victims during their time of need. To better serve Sacramento personal injury victims, I have collected a list of some of the most commonly asked personal injury questions and provided the answers below. I hope this information is useful to you.

How much compensation will I receive?

It is hard to predict how much compensation you will receive for your injury claim. A variety of factors will be considered, such as the extent of your injuries, the need for present and future medical care, as well as the amount of lost wages. Having legal representation can help ensure that you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law.

I've just had an accident. What should I do next?

If you have just had an accident, it is important that you remain calm. Take pictures of the accident, such as any damage done to your car and to the other vehicle. Do not apologize at all because simply saying "sorry" can be considered as admitting responsibility for the accident. Get the other's driver's contact and insurance information. Collect the contact information of any present witnesses who can testify on your behalf. Seek medical care for your injuries, even if they don't seem serious. Speak with a Sacramento personal injury lawyer such as myself as soon as possible.

The insurance company has made me an offer. Should I accept it?

I strongly recommend that you do not accept an insurance company's initial offer without first consulting a lawyer. I can take a look at the offer to determine if your claim is worth more. If so, I will do everything possible to secure an offer that reflects your needs, even if that requires taking your case to court.

What is premises liability?

Premises liability is the area of the law that applies to cases where injury has occurred on someone else's property due to unsafe conditions. An example of a premises liability case is when a customer slips and falls in a grocery store aisle that did not warn of slipperiness. Property owners have the responsibility to maintain and create a safe environment for all visitors and patrons. Click here for more information about premises liability cases.

Why should I hire you to represent me?

I have handled thousands of civil litigation cases during my legal career, which spans more than two decades. I also have the sharp litigation skills required to protect the rights of my clients, inside and outside of court. As my client, you can feel peace of mind in knowing that I will do everything in my power to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve. My inclusion on the Super Lawyers® list and AV Preeminent® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell® are a testament of the kind of high-quality services I provide, which could make all the difference in the results of your case.
