Common Questions
(read the firm’s frequently asked questions)

What does contingency fee mean?

“Contingency fee” means that your attorney’s fee is contingent (i.e. dependent) on the case outcome.   In other words, if your attorney does not secure any compensation for you through a trial verdict or a settlement, you will not have to pay any fee to your attorney.  Contingency fee arrangements ensure that injured parties have access to the civil justice system by allowing them to hire a lawyer without an obligation to pay upfront legal fees.


What is the statute of limitations?

Every case has a specific limit on how much time a person has to file a lawsuit.  This limit is called the “statute of limitations.”  Generally, this time period starts on the date of an accident or injury.  In some cases, the proverbial “clock” starts ticking from the date the injury is “discovered” – i.e. when the injured party suspects or should suspect that the injury was caused by someone’s wrongdoing.

Different kinds of claims have different statutes of limitations; there is no universal time limit applicable to all cases.  For example, in California, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is 2 years, but the time limit for medical malpractice claims is only 1 year.  Claims against Governmental agencies may have to be filed as early as 6 months after an incident.   The importance of the statute of limitations concept cannot be underemphasized – it is a hard deadline that must be strictly complied with; otherwise, any potential rights to pursue your case and obtain a financial compensation may be lost forever.


How much is my case worth?

The determination of the value of a case depends on the physical, emotional, and financial injuries suffered by you.  The legal term used for this evaluation is called “damages.”   The two most common kinds of legal damages are: (1) non-economic (e.g. pain and suffering) and (2) economic (e.g. medical expenses and lost earnings).  In some rare cases, punitive damages and other forms of compensation could potentially be recoverable as well.   All of these complex factors are taken into account when deciding how much a case is worth.  Cherepinskiy Law Firm, the premier Los Angeles personal injury law firm, has the expertise needed to accurately evaluate and successfully pursue multiple types of personal injury and other matters.


What does it mean to be partially at fault for my injury?

California courts follow the legal principle of “comparative negligence”.  Under this doctrine, the respective fault of every party involved in an incident is considered.  For example, when a drunk driver hits a pedestrian who was crossing a street when the light was red, the pedestrian is partially at fault for the accident and the resulting injuries.   If a plaintiff is found to be 30% at fault, the defendant’s degree of fault is reduced to 70%, and the level of compensation is decreased accordingly.  In such a case, if a jury’s verdict is $100,000, the plaintiff’s final trial award will be $70,000.
