Types of Cases We Take
Personal injury is a pretty broad area of law. It basically covers anyone injured through the careless or dangerous conduct of another person. At our firm, we have extensive experience helping those who are injured in:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Dog bites
- Slip and falls
- Train accidents
- Other premises liability claims
After a devastating accident, many people suffer from serious injuries which send them to the emergency room for care. They really don’t know what happened or who is to blame. In fact, they might have no memory of the incident at all. At this point, the next logical step is to contact a seasoned Roseville personal injury lawyer who can review the facts known and investigate to find out more information.
Is an Injury Attorney Right For You?
The first question victims often ask themselves is; “Should I hire an attorney or deal with the insurance company myself?”. This is a difficult decision in some cases which is why we always advise you to consult with an attorney, allow them to review your case, and offer the best advice.
With the Law Office of Brian P. Azemika in Roseville, consultations are always free. Insurance companies would prefer to work directly with the victim because they often are able to settle for far less than when you are represented by a personal injury attorney. Many insurance companies offer peanuts to people suffering from serious injuries.
Often times your lawyer will be able to settle your case for far more than you were initially offered. There are several reasons for this. For one, an experienced Roseville personal injury attorney should understand the full value of a case. For another, an attorney should be familiar with the different tricks insurance adjusters use to “lowball” clients. Our team is prepared to hold out for fair compensation to cover your losses.
Some Benefits of Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Case
Many people wrongly believe that lawyers do not add value to a case. The truth could not be more different. Lawyers provide many benefits, including:
- I take on the stress of dealing with the insurance company so you can focus on healing from your injuries.
- I know how to negotiate with the insurance companies.
- I will give you peace of mind.
- I know all the laws that apply to your rights and responsibilities when you are injured due to someone else’s negligence.
Armed with our knowledge of the law, we can fight for maximum compensation following an accident or other incident.
Here is one example. Under California law, a victim who was contributorily negligent will receive less compensation than if she were 100% blameless. For example, someone struck in an intersection by a speeding vehicle might have stopped with their front fender over the line. In that case, the victim shares some of the responsibility for the accident, so her compensation will be reduced.
However, our team can use our experience to collect evidence that minimizes our client’s negligence. In this way, we can increase the amount of money she takes home.
What Is Fair Compensation for Your Injuries?
This is a question we get all the time. Sometimes, people ask what the “average” personal injury settlement is. The simple fact is that, under California law, there is no such thing as an average settlement. Instead, an accident victim should receive money damages for:
- Medical care to treat your injuries. If you need surgery, rehab, and/or prescription drugs, then the person responsible for your accident should have to pay.
- Lost income. Many injuries prevent a person from going to work. As a result, innocent victims lose out on important compensation, and many fear that they won’t be able to support their families.
- Property damage. If someone damaged your car, they should pay to fix or replace it. It’s that simple.
Our clients also can receive compensation for certain harder-to-value losses like pain, suffering, disfigurement, and emotional distress. Serious injuries can leave people bedridden and in considerable pain. Even relatively minor injuries, like a burn, could cause intense emotional distress. Damages for these losses often make up a big percentage of any settlement, but many insurers try to limit their payout. An experienced attorney knows how to value emotional distress and other pain to their client’s advantage.
There is No Reason to Delay
Please contact a Roseville personal injury attorney right away. In California, injured victims are given a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit for their injuries. This is called the “statute of limitations,” and in most cases, it is only two years. If you wait too long—even a day too long—you can lose the ability to see compensation forever.
Reaching out to an attorney benefits accident victims and their families in another way. Every case turns on evidence. For example, if you were struck by a truck, you need proof that the driver was negligent. This evidence can take many forms, such as eyewitness testimony or electronic logs. Unfortunately, as time passes, this evidence can disappear or get erased. By hiring an attorney promptly, you preserve as much evidence as possible, strengthening your claim.

Brian Azemika fought for me when others thought my case was a lost cause. Brian Azemika took over my case with only a few weeks to prepare prior to trial. His knowledge and expertise showed in how he prepared me for my testimony at trial. He also had a great presence in the courtroom and really connected with the jury during the entire trial. He did such a great job in the eyes of the jury that many of them approached him after the trial and asked him for his business card. Thanks to Mr. Azemika, the jury returned a verdict for $400,000.00, which was amazing since the settlement offer from the insurance company was for only $45,000.00 on the first day of trial. I am so glad that Brian Azemika was my trial attorney.
