Understanding Your Case
Personal injury cases are based on the idea that harm caused by an accident or injury is due to the negligence of others. Although this may seem straight-forward, proving this type of negligence can be a complicated process and one that should not be undertaken without the help of a qualified attorney.
Do You Have A Claim?
Have you suffered an injury to your person or property? Was your injury the result of someone else’s fault? It is not always necessary to have a physical injury to bring a lawsuit; however, suits may be based on a variety of non-physical losses and harms. You also may have an action if someone has attacked your reputation, invaded your privacy, or negligently or intentionally inflicted emotional distress upon you.
How Much Is Your Case Worth?
Although most lawyers may have a sense of the value of each case at the beginning, evaluation of many factors is prudent. At some point after a thorough evaluation of the evidence and a proper work up of the case, the Lawyer handling the case will provide information as to his opinion on value. Generally this occurs later in the case. The Lawyer's opinion of value does not mean there is a guarantee of any recovery. People often want to know what they can win after being injured in an accident. Here are a few examples:
- Current Medical Bills – Being involved in an accident usually means large medical bills. As a victim, you are entitled to have these expenses paid in relation to your case.
- Future Medical Costs – Recovery is often a long-term process. We'll fight to have your expenses covered now and in the future.
- Lost Wages – If you had to leave work due to your injuries, you are entitled to lost wages as part of your compensation.
- Future Income – Sometimes returning to your previous job or career is no longer an option. If this is a result of an accident, we can recover the money you may miss out on for years to come.
- Pain and Suffering – You are entitled to payment for your pain and suffering as a result of your experience.
The Importance of an Experienced Lawyer
Watching some of the movies or television shows these days can give you the wrong idea. Hollywood makes it seem like injury and accident cases are normal and that anyone can represent themselves in a court of law.
But those outside of the legal profession are rarely equipped to handle the complex issues that can arise when using our legal system. Make sure you have a trusted partner on your side to help with this process.
Frequently, you'll find those at fault will have the backing of the insurance companies and an army of lawyers arguing on their behalf. Their main goal is to deny your claim, downplay your pain and suffering, and minimize your compensation. Without a tough attorney on your side, winning your case – or getting everything you may be entitled to – can be almost impossible.
Matthew Donahue knows how to defend your rights, negotiate with the insurance companies, and get the results you want.
Preparing for Your Initial Consultation
For the initial meeting, it will be helpful to bring in all of the documentation you have regarding your claim. If you're not sure if the information is relevant, bring it anyway – the more the better. Don't worry if you don't have everything you need right away. We can always gather whatever else is required afterwards.
A few things you may want to bring:
- Police Reports, or the card given to you by the police or CHP. If you do not have a report, bring all of the defendants’ information that you do have.
- Medical Reports from your doctors or hospitals that describe your injuries
- Insurance Information for the other driver
- Photographs from the accident scene, your vehicle, and your injuries
- Your Driver’s License
- Your medical insurance identification card
- Your automobile insurance policy
- The name and address of your current doctor(s)
- The name and address of the doctors you have seen in the past five years

"Before I got injured I was a party to two lawsuits that were both sticky messes. Getting involved in another one made me wary, but Matt Donahue and his team maintained this case in a way that it didn't become so heavy on me. At the end, we got the maximum policy amount. Matt and his firm are very good."
I’ve known Matt Donahue since 2007 when he handled my first auto accident. He handled it with grace and the utmost care. Then when I was rear-ended again in 2015, the case was significantly more difficult, but he again, did the absolute best for me that anyone could ask for. This office is professional, timely and steadfast in their ability to get the job done. I now work with them from time to time on a professional level some days and they’ve never wavered. They work hard to make sure the system does not fail their clients. I would confidently recommend giving them a call if you’ve been involved in an accident.
