PAUL OVERETT

Lead Attorney

Paul was born and raised in Northern Michigan but quickly realized he was more suited to the southern California lifestyle.

He attended California State University, Long Beach where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Real Estate, and Law. His long standing dream of practicing law began to take shape as he was accepted to local powerhouse Loyola Law School where he graduated in 1998.

The early years of Paul’s practice provided a broad foundation of experience across several areas of law, but his path was clearly leading to personal injury. The daily grind of battling insurance adjusters and defense attorneys is now the center of Paul’s wheelhouse, where he has the reputation of being a relentless, aggressive negotiator with studied patience and a calm demeanor.

Paul is a member of several important organizations that support consumer and plaintiff issues through informational exchange and government lobbying and frequently attends events to stay on top of key issues and collaborate with colleagues.

The father of two teenagers, Paul spends his spare time surfing, running the beach, and traveling as often as possible, as well as abstract painting and learning Spanish.

CALIFORNIA LAW FOR PERSONAL INJURY

Different state laws define personal injury actions for each state. The California laws pertaining to personal injury apply to intentional acts or negligent actions, which resulted in serious injury. These acts can result from vehicle accidents, violent assaults, and liability torts, including defective product injuries and animal attacks.

If another person's negligent actions result in you suffering an injury, you can file legal action against the one responsible. By submitting a personal injury claim, you could receive financial compensation for a variety of losses. The losses you can be compensated for include a reduced earning capacity, rehab costs, medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering resulting from your injuries.

To receive this compensation and to file a personal injury claim, you need to contact Orange County Personal Injury Attorney. We specialize in this field, and you could receive up to three times more compensation with proper legal representation, then if you attempt this process on your own. We are experienced in California personal injury laws and will ensure your claim is filed on time and with the proper information.

Each state has an amount of time you are allowed to wait before filing a personal injury claim if you have suffered harm. This time is called a statute of limitations, and the different deadlines depending on the type of case you are filing.

The State of California allows a person up to two years from the date they are injured to go to court against those responsible for their injuries. This statute of limitations means the injured party has to go to court within a two-year time frame, or the court can refuse to hear the case, and their right to compensation can be lost.

Due to the statute of limitations, you should contact Orange County Personal Injury Attorney as soon as possible. Evidence can be collected, and any supporting material for your claim can be gathered and filed on time. This information will allow your attorney to prove negligence on the responsible party's actions and seek the compensation you deserve.

To prove negligence in a California personal injury suit, you must show:


If you are filing a claim against a government body, you have six months to file a personal injury claim and are required to follow strict procedural rules. A person can be injured in countless ways that can create a personal injury claim against the government. Faulty stairs in a government building, a city bus causing an accident resulting in harm, or a slip and fall from oil left standing at the DMV are just some of the examples where you can sustain an injury that results in the government being responsible.

Special rules have to be followed if your injury has resulted from an accident that the government is even partially responsible for, whether it be a city, state, or federal. The city, county, or federal government set their own rules as to who can sue them, how they can be sued, and for what they can be sued. To file a claim against the government for harm received, you have to start by filing a formal written claim against the government body responsible. This claim generally has to be filed within 30 to 180 days from the date of the accident. By not filing within their time limit, or failing to provide the required information, you may forfeit your right to compensation.

If you have been in an accident that involves a government body, for example, a city bus driver’s poor driving skills or harmed inside a government building, contact Orange County Personal Injury Attorney immediately. Some time limits are as short as thirty days, and our attorney will be able to verify the deadline you must follow and ensure all information is filed properly. You do not want the wrong information entered, as correcting the error may not be possible if time runs out on filing.

Lawsuits against governments are more complex than a similar case. You will need an experienced personal injury attorney working with you to address any form of a negligence claim against a city, state, or federal government body. Examples of where you may be able to hold them accountable include falling down on a crumbling sidewalk outside a government building, being struck by an on-duty police officer who runs a red light, or being involved in an accident caused by a city bus driver.
