Frequently Asked Questions

What are “pain and suffering” damages?

In many cases, it costs a lot of money to be injured. But if you broke your ankle, strained your back, or suffered a concussion in a slip and fall accident, that’s not all you lost, is it? Isn’t the physical and emotional distress that you endured because of your injury worth something? Actually, it is – at least under California personal injury law. And in many cases, it can be the largest element of damages in your case. 

Do I need to prove my claim beyond a reasonable doubt?

No. “Reasonable doubt” is the standard for a criminal prosecution. In a lawsuit for money damages, the “preponderance of the evidence” standard is used. If you can prove that your evidence outweighs the defendant’s evidence, even by a little bit, you win. 

Is it possible to win without proving fault?

Yes, under certain circumstances. You can win a claim against the manufacturer of a defective product, for example, without proving fault. You can also sometimes win a claim against an employer for the wrongful conduct of their employee without proving that the employer was at fault. Also you can collect damages under the Montreal Convention for injuries which occur during international airline flights up to a predesignated limit without showing the airline was at fault.  It all depends on the facts of your particular case.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU:

  • Our Burlingame personal injury lawyer can help you avoid making common mistakes so you obtain the justice you deserve. If you give a recorded statement to the insurance company, if you do not obtain medical treatment right away, if you have gaps in your medical care, if you do not preserve important evidence, if you fill out a form that you should not or fail to fill out a form you should, then your legal claim or the value of your recovery could be dramatically affected. Mr. Shapiro will be there every step along the way in the claim or legal process to help you avoid these common mistakes. This will allow you to focus on your health and your recovery. If you have a question about what you should do, call Shapiro Legal Group today for your free consultation.
  • Our Burlingame personal injury attorney will help you decide whether to settle your case. When the time comes either before a lawsuit is filed or when a decision to go to trial must be made, our economically based analysis will help you determine what is the best course for you. These are very difficult and emotional decisions. We always examine the choice based on your bottom line and what is best for you and your family. If you have a question as to whether you should settle or hire a Burlingame personal injury lawyer, you should call Mr. Shapiro at 1-650-274-0180.
  • We will examine whether you have a claim which is worth pursuing. Because of our experience having handled numerous fact patterns, we will examine the strengths and weaknesses of your case to determine whether you should hire a highly-skilled Burlingame personal injury attorney. If based on the merits we do not think you have a case then we will tell you. For many people, this is some of the best advice we can give. Some cases are relatively straightforward. Others have potential avenues of recovery which most people would not consider or even know about. For example, in one case a vehicle was struck head-on by another car traveling the wrong way on the freeway rendering one of the passengers a quadriplegic. The matter resolved for millions of dollars against Kaiser for allegedly improperly filling out a form regarding the wrong-way driver's seizure condition allowing her to regain her driver's license. Not only was Mr. Shapiro able to help the young woman rendered a ventilator-dependent quadriplegic, but he also obtained a wrongful death recovery for the son of the wrong-way driver. There were no leads regarding these important legal facts in the police report. Only because Mr. Shapiro investigated the life of the wrong-way driver did the avenue of recovery come to light. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury or if you have tragically lost a family member then you owe it to yourself or your loved one to call and speak to a trusted Burlingame personal injury lawyer at Shapiro Legal Group for a free consultation. Free of charge and with no obligation Mr. Shapiro will analyze your case and see if he can help.
