Some of the city’s biggest employers are in the wine industry, health care, electronics, and medical devices. The cost of living in Santa Rosa is quite high, with a total cost of living that’s about 75% above the national average and a median home cost at about 125% above average.

What if I’m Not Sure Whether I Have a Case?
Wondering whether or not you have a case for an accident claim in Santa Rosa? No need to wonder! Let’s talk asap. We can help you understand your options and decide how to move forward. When you are injured by a person, corporation, or government entity, you are legally entitled to collect monetary compensation in an amount suitable to cover your expenses and damages.
Of course, your compensation is never guaranteed. You’ll have to make a strong case and stand up assertively when the other side puts up a fight. That’s why you need help from a personal injury lawyer who gets results!
Generally speaking, someone from Santa Rosa has three options after a personal injury:
- Start a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company.
- File a lawsuit in court.
- Negotiate a fair, private settlement out of court.
With the experience and wisdom of your personal injury lawyer, you can demonstrate the legitimacy of your injuries, show that someone was negligent, and request reimbursement for medical costs and other hardships. The Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers team will help you stand up to difficult people and demand what you deserve.
Our goal is to help you maximize your compensation by making a case for your financial losses and damages related to your injuries. Sure, it’s possible to do this without a lawyer’s help, but we don’t advise it. You’re already trying to rest and heal from your injuries, so a lawyer serves the vital role of moving your case forward so you can let go of all the legal stress.
What Kind of Compensation Could I Recover?
The value of your total compensation depends on the circumstances of your accident. In terms of what kind of compensation you could get, start by looking at how you’ve been hurt and what kinds of injuries required medical care. Most injury cases only cover two categories of damages if you can prove them.
- Special damages: Your special damages may include car loss, property damage, medical bills, and lost earnings.
- General damages: Your general damages are more abstract and may include pain, inconvenience, distress, loss of hobbies, and loss of a lifestyle with your loved ones.
Make sure you talk to your lawyer about the losses you suffered that are impacting your life. The better case you can put together and the more evidence you have, the better chance you have at receiving high-value compensation.
