STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

Personal Injury Lawyer in Stockton Discusses Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases

A statute of limitations is the maximum amount of time after an incident occurred that a lawsuit may be brought about regarding that incident. For personal injury in California, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is general two years from the date of the incident during which the injury occurred. There are some exceptions to this rule but they are relatively rare. If you miss a deadline relating to taking legal action, all right to sue is lost so make sure to contact a personal injury lawyer in Stockton immediately if you’ve been injured.

Delayed Injuries

Unfortunately, there are some injuries that take awhile to make themselves apparent. Head injuries are especially susceptible to delayed manifestation and unpredictable developments. What may initially seem like a mild injury resulting in a slight headache can turn out to be a more serious, debilitating, and expensive problem requiring extensive treatment and medication. There is no forgiveness for delayed symptoms – the statute of limitations stands even if your symptoms from an injury don’t show up until past the deadline to take legal action. This is one reason it’s so important to speak to a personal injury lawyer in Stockton about whether to move forward with legal action as soon as possible after the injury occurs. (more…)

DANGEROUS TOYS, PRODUCTS & EQUIPMENT

If you are ever injured because of a defective product, you should contact an experienced injury attorney in Stockton at the Sadiq Law Firm, P.C. as soon as possible.

As a parent, you take every measure necessary to ensure your child has a safe and enjoyable upbringing.

NECK & BACK INJURIES

What Causes Different Types of Neck & Back Injuries

Neck and back injuries can be very devastating and can be incurred through common incidences, such as a car accident or a fall. Consequences from these injuries can extend from the physical and include emotional and financial damage. Neck and back injuries typically not only affect an individual at the time of the injury but may have long lasting effects for weeks to even years. This long-term pain and damage may affect the ability of that individual to perform their job and otherwise live their life in a normal fashion. Neck and back injuries can negatively affect an individual in many ways for a long time so make sure to speak to a Stockton injury attorney if you have been suffered any type of injury.

When an individual experiences an accident, it is important that they pay attention to any symptoms, even after the incident. Individuals should pay close attention to any symptoms they have in the neck and back areas immediately after the incident as well as several days after. Neck and back injuries can feel mild and symptoms can be delayed by some time. Immediate medical attention should be sought if any pain or discomfort is felt in these areas. (more…)

ELDER ABUSE & NEGLECT

Personal Injury Attorney in Stockton Provides a General Overview of Elder Abuse & Neglect

Recent estimates conclude that over 400,000 elder individuals live in nursing homes or elder care facilities in California. Some 7,000 of these care facilities may not be licensed and may not be providing adequate care to their residents. With our rising population, the number of elder individuals and the number of individuals in assisted care will dramatically rise in the near future. That means the cases involving elder abuse will increase as well. If you or someone you know has suffered from elder abuse, speak with a personal injury attorney in Stockton.

In California, elder abuse is considered neglect, exploitation, or “painful or harmful” mistreatment of anyone who is 65 or older. It also protects “dependent” adults aged 18 to 64 from this mistreatment. This covers mental and physical abuse, isolation and abandonment, abduction, and theft. These individuals are at a higher risk for abuse for several reasons, including dementia, physical weakness, isolation from family, accumulated wealth, and a general lack of knowledge or understanding about modern life, such as the internet. There are many different factors that go into these cases and it’s best to speak with a personal injury attorney in Stockton regarding your specific circumstance. (more…)
