Speak with a Lake Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer
The Lake Los Angeles personal injury attorneys of our firm do not only specialize in motor vehicle accident claims. We also handle a wide variety of other types of personal injury and wrongful death cases, ranging from slip and fall premises liability claims to medical malpractice cases and even product liability lawsuits against major manufacturers and drug companies. In every case we represent, we pursue an out-of-court settlement whenever possible. When the insurance company or defendant is not willing to pay a fair settlement, however, we do not hesitate to take our client's claim to court for a full jury trial in pursuit of a favorable verdict. With success, you may be entitled to receive financial compensation for your medical expenses, your lost income and the pain, suffering and emotional distress you have been forced to experience.

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.
