Personal Injury
in Rocklin

Brian P. Azemika understands personal injury law. For more than 15 years, he has helped men, women and children receive compensation after being injured in accidents. The days following a car wreck or other incident are confusing, and many people feel that all hope is lost. We know better. We have built our reputation fighting for powerless victims when they confront mammoth insurance companies to request money for their injuries.

If you’ve been injured, please contact us today. We can meet for a free consultation to go over your accident and explain your rights.

We Handle the Full Range of Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury involves situations where a person suffers a bodily injury due to the careless or dangerous conduct of another person. If you were injured in any of the following accidents, we can help:

  • Car wrecks
  • Truck accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motorcycle collisions
  • Train accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Dog bites

Why Sue after an Injury?

The injuries our clients suffer tend to be serious. They are often in considerable pain and must spend weeks or months going to doctors and specialists to figure out the best way to recover. Rehabilitation, surgery, and prescription drugs are some of the expenses that they incur, and it is not unusual for accident victims to spend more than $10,000 to treat a relatively minor injury.

No one injured in an accident should have to shoulder these financial consequences alone. When someone else is to blame for your accident, then they should pay you compensation for your injuries.

For the past 15 years, our firm has fought to obtain compensation to cover:

  • Medical care, including any future medical needs
  • Lost income and lost earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

For example, after a dog bite, you might need to go to the hospital for stitches and a rabies vaccine, as well as meet with your doctor for regular checkups. If you catch an infection, you might spend a day or two in the hospital so that your condition does not worsen. Because of your pain, you quite possibly will miss several weeks of work and could even struggle with depression and anxiety. At the end of treatment, you might have an ugly scar on your face which causes intense embarrassment and possibly prevents you from leaving home.

All of these losses should be compensated. And we know how to make compelling arguments to secure favorable and just compensation following an accident.

How to Find the Right Rocklin Personal Injury Attorney

Rocklin and surrounding areas have countless qualified attorneys—but how do you know who is the right fit for your needs? We recommend that you take a deliberate approach to find the right lawyer for you:

1.       Ask friends and family for a referral or do a web search of attorneys who practice in Rocklin. We’re glad you’re here to check out our webpage.

2.       Check that the lawyer practices personal injury law. A divorce lawyer might be great at his job, but he doesn’t have the depth of experience in personal injury law that we do.

3.       Attend a consultation and ask questions. Of course, you can ask any question you want, but try to find out more about the lawyer’s experience and what he thinks are your odds of success.

4.       Analyze how comfortable you felt with the lawyer. Communication is a big part of a successful attorney-client relationship. You should hire someone you enjoyed talking to.

5.       Understand how the lawyer charges for his services. For example, our firm represents clients on contingency, meaning they don’t pay any legal fees upfront. Instead, we only charge a fee if we win your case.

Why You Should Pick Up the Phone without Delay

After an accident, you might not know where to turn, and some victims are tempted to just handle their insurance claim themselves. This is a big mistake. The smart thing to do is to pick up the phone immediately and call our office.

California sets strict deadlines for injured victims to bring a lawsuit to court. The deadline is found in the statute of limitations, which in California gives you only two years from the date of your accident to sue. If you wait too long, then you’ll lose out on your chance for compensation. This is a harsh rule, but judges will enforce it.
