Lake Elizabeth Personal Injury Lawyer

Lake Elizabeth Has a History of Accidents

The town of Lake Elizabeth received its name from a slip and fall accident. In the middle of the 19th century, a young woman named Elizabeth Wingfield was walking along a log that extended into the lake, carrying buckets to fill with water for cooking and drinking while she was visiting the area on a camping trip with her family. Ms. Wingfield slipped and fell into the water, though she was fortunately not hurt. Other campers who saw the accident jokingly named the lake after Elizabeth, and with the passage of time the name ended up sticking.

During the times when California was under Spanish and Mexican rule, Lake Elizabeth saw a large volume of traffic traveling up and down the Old Road, with travelers passing through on trips between Southern and Northern California. More recently, however, it has turned into a quiet rural community, and the shared area of Lake Elizabeth and Lake Hughes are now relatively safe and peaceful. Accidents, however, continue to happen, with traffic traveling through on Elizabeth Lake Road and Pine Canyon Road, as well as the winding mountain thoroughfares of Lake Hughes Road and San FrancisquitoCanyon Road.

Do You Have Questions?

  • If someone else's negligence or carelessness caused your accident, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for your damages. Speak with a lawyer from Accident Attorneys to learn more about your legal rights and options with our firm. You can also fill out an online evaluation form for additional information about your unique case.

  • Every case is different. A variety of circumstances determine the value of your claim. Property damage, medical expenses, hospitalization fees, pain, and suffering, missed wages, and many other factors can affect the outcome of your case.

    You can even collect damages for future unemployment / missed wages and ongoing medical costs. Speak with a member of the legal team at Accident Attorneys to learn more about the potential value of your case.

  • If you file a claim against an individual, his / her insurance company is probably aware of the judgment. If the insurance is unaware of the settlement, you can notify the insurer. At this point, the insurance provider should issue a check for the settlement.

    If the responsible party does not have insurance, you may need to enter the settlement with the court. The court has the authority to enforce the judgment if the responsible party refuses to pay.

  • There is no minimum amount of money allowed for a personal injury settlement; every case is determined by the unique facts surrounding the claim. Additionally, most jurisdictions do not have a cap on the amount of my money that you can receive through a personal injury settlement.

    In California, the amount of money that you can receive for noneconomic damages (pain, suffering, etc.) for a medical malpractice case is limited to $250,000; however, other injury settlements are not subject to this restriction.

  • Generally speaking, parents are not allowed to access any money given to their child for a personal injury settlement. This is because some parents may take the money for their own benefit instead of the child.

    Your child's money will probably be placed in a blocked bank account that only he / she can access at the age of 18. The court may allow you to access the money sooner, but only if it is needed for the child's well-being or health.
