How to File a Personal Injury Claim

In order to file a personal injury lawsuit in California, you must be able to demonstrate that the accident was caused by the negligence of another and that you have sustained injuries as a result. One of the most important things you can do after an accident is to gather evidence and get medical attention. This is true even if you are not yet sure of the full extent of your injuries. Many people do not realize that they have been significantly hurt and that their medical conditions will continue to influence them for years to come.

For example, many victims of whiplash report that they are still suffering chronic pain years after the accident has happened. Even with a comprehensive health insurance plan, this may not be enough to assist you with the recovery you need. This is why hiring a Santa Barbara personal injury attorney to assist you with the next steps to protect you now and in the long run. When filing an injury lawsuit, you need the insight of an experienced injury attorney who has experience in the field of personal injury cases. You should never attempt to handle a personal injury case on your own as you could make big mistakes that could cost you and compromise the integrity of your claim.

Our attorneys have helped countless accident victims and their families win tens of millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts.

Injury Scholarship

At The May Firm, we understand the importance of an education and just how difficult it can be to finance college these days. Robert May, our founding attorney here at The May Firm, was the first in his family to attend college! He’s incredibly appreciative of the opportunity he had to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for his undergraduate degree, then moving on to law school. As we all know, the cost of obtaining a higher education keeps rising, which can often times put students in a tough situation, both mentally and financially.

Our goal is to provide students with assistance in obtaining a higher education, and taking some of the financial burden off of hard working students.

We’re offering a bi-annual scholarship in the amount of $1,000, which will be provided to a student enrolled at either a community college or University.
