Secluded inside the “Redwood Curtain” just over five hours from the San Francisco Bay area, Humboldt County, California is a veritable oasis that is still considered “out of the way” for most Californians. Those who live in Humboldt County, which was not long ago rated among the most beautiful counties in the United States, enjoy its awe-inspiring beauty—from the tallest trees on the planet to the largest area of unspoiled coastline in the country.
But, unfortunately, Humboldt County also has one of the worst pedestrian injury and fatality rates in the state. Furthermore, the county exceeds the national average for motor vehicle deaths. In fact, according to statistics from 2016, Humboldt’s total per capita motor vehicle deaths for that year was about three times both the national and statewide averages. Approximately one-third of all these fatalities were cases of pedestrians being hit by motor vehicles.
If you have been seriously injured in an accident in Humboldt County, there are many decisions you need to make in areas where you probably don’t have any experience. This can be very confusing. Especially after what you have already suffered.
Personal injury law allows a person to seek compensation for injuries they sustained as a result of someone else ‘s negligence or recklessness. Although not every situation in which someone is injured will lead to liability, there are a variety of different circumstances that can give rise to a personal injury case.
Some of the most common types of personal injury case are as follows:
Picking the right attorney to represent you in your personal injury case will greatly affect the outcome of your case. But, although success is important, it is also important to have an attorney who actually cares. If that’s what you are looking for, you have come to the right place.
The Law Office of Michael Rehm will help:
Nationwide statistics show that accident victims who are represented by a counsel recover approximately three times more compensation than those who attempt to go it alone, even after their attorney’s fees are subtracted. This means you will receive more money to compensate you for your injuries and losses by being represented by our law firm than you will recover on your own.
When you get us involved in your personal injury case, we will protect you from being taken advantage of by an insurance company whose goal is to get you to accept an injury settlement that is less than you deserve. Insurance companies are well-known for taking advantage of the fact that accident victims rarely know what rights they have and just how much compensation they are entitled to receive.
Regardless of how pleasant (or how rude) the representative from the insurance company is to you, their job is to minimize the amount of money that they have to pay you. Our job, on the other hand, is to maximize the amount of compensation you receive for your injuries and losses.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, don’t hesitate to call our law office. Your future and the future of those you care about may depend on it.
The law gives you limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit, two years in California. If you miss this mark, you may be forever barred from seeking the compensation that you deserve from those who are responsible for your injuries.
Don’t make the common mistakes of putting it off. The sooner Attorney Michael Rehm gets involved, the sooner he can help you get the compensation you are entitled to.
