We care about your well-being and will work tirelessly to prevent you from paying expenses that resulted from someone else’s wrongdoing. Your injury has already cost you enough, and in the aftermath, you shouldn’t have to focus on anything other than recovering and moving forward. Our personal injury attorney is an experienced negotiator who can work to pursue the highest settlement possible. At Law Office of Heather Hinton, we strive to resolve personal injury cases outside of court to save clients from the time and hassle involved, but we recognize that some situations require a judge.
If you’re not satisfied with the settlement offered to you by the insurance company, we will take your case to court.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
There are various ways in which you can suffer an injury at the expense of someone else’s actions. Our personal injury attorney is experienced in helping clients fight for maximum compensation if third party negligence left them injured. Common types of injury and accidents cases we handle include but are not limited to:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Dram shop law
- Dog bites
- Intentional torts
- Medical malpractice
- Product defects
- Premises liability
- Workplace accident
In most of these personal injury cases, someone else’s reckless or thoughtless behavior caused injury that could have been prevented if the proper precautions and foresight had been followed. Our mission is to prove that you sustained an injury as a result of someone else’s actions, or failure to act, and that you should be compensated for the pain and suffering that resulted as such. In doing so, we hope to supply you with the financial resources you need to pay your medical bills, rehabilitative costs, time off work and more.

What to Do After Suffering an Injury
Injuries are typically unexpected. As soon as you’ve been hurt, you may feel caught off guard and overwhelmed with emotions, and that’s completely normal. However, you are responsible for seeking medical help and gathering as much documentation of your injury as possible, including:
- Pictures and videos of the accident scene
- Pictures and videos of your injury
- Doctor’s notes
- Bills related to your injury (medical, bank statements, etc.)
- Police reports
Should you entrust us with your personal injury case, do not communicate with anyone other than our attorney. Talking to your insurance company or the defendant at any point may negatively impact your case because what you say could be used against you. Even saying “sorry” after an accident may end up hurting your chances of receiving a fair settlement.
How Long Do You Have to Sue Someone for Personal Injury in California?
In California, you have two years to sue the party that is at fault for the personal injury.
How Much is Pain and Suffering Worth?
In California, there is no set formula to determine pain and suffering. In order to recover damages for pain and suffering (including mental distress and other economic damages), the plaintiff must prove that they suffered this harm or are certain to suffer in the future as a result.
Fighting to Win Your Personal Injury Claim
There are four parts to a personal injury claim, all of which must be satisfied in order to have a better chance of getting maximum compensation:
- Duty of Care: The defendant was obligated to treat you with care and prevent harming you.
- Breach of Duty: The defendant failed to exercise reasonable care.
- Causation: The defendant’s actions, or failure to act, resulted in your injury. If the defendant didn’t perform such carelessness, you would not suffer an injury.
- Damages: The victim must prove that they sustained bodily harm, or personal or property harm. Proof of harm may come in the form of medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and disability.
We are prepared with the skills and resources to help you seek maximum compensation. Don’t face your personal injury case without our lawyer by your side. You can count on us to fight for you.
