Frequently Asked Questions

At Karns & Karns Personal Injury and Accident Attorneys, personal injury is all we do. We handle a wide range of injury cases, including all types of motor vehicle accidents. For example, we represent victims of car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and rideshare accidents. We also handle wrongful death, slip and fall accidents, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, dangerous and defective products, construction accidents, and many more injury cases.

"Damages" is the legal term for what you have lost in the accident. Damages generally fall into two main categories, economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include monetary or quantifiable losses you have incurred, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and property damages. Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify because they are non-monetary losses. Examples of non-economic damages include pain and suffering, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Each state has its own time limit for filing a personal injury claim. This time limit is called the statute of limitations. In California, Nevada, and Texas, most personal injury claims will fall under a two-year statute of limitations. That means you have two years from the date of the injury or death to file a lawsuit. However, there are certain exceptions to these deadlines. Consider discussing your unique situation with an experienced personal injury attorney from our firm. We can help you understand how the statute of limitations in your state may affect your potential claim.

Most personal injury lawyers, like us, work on a contingency fee basis. Working on contingency means that you pay nothing upfront for legal representation. Instead, you only pay if you win your case through a settlement or verdict. You and your lawyer will agree to an amount, usually a percentage. If your case succeeds, that amount will be deducted from the verdict or settlement. If your case is not successful, then you owe the lawyer nothing.
