FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A personal injury lawsuit can be filed when you've been hurt by a person or entity (a business, organization, or government agency) because of a negligent or intentionally wrongful act. A personal injury can be anything from physical harm suffered in a car accident to emotional distress that's the result of someone committing libel or slander against you.
In a personal injury case, the only remedy is money. If you file a personal injury lawsuit, part of the claim will be a request for a certain amount of “damages,” which is the money that the defendant is obligated to pay you if you win. Your lawyer can help determine what your demand should be based on how much you've lost.
The basis for personal injury law is to make the plaintiff “whole”. In other words, it's intended to restore you to the position you would be in if the accident hadn't happened. The way the court does this is by awarding money that will cover any expenses associated with the injury.
Some states have damage caps, which means there's a maximum amount a plaintiff can recover for a personal injury.
In California, you can always recover your economic damages to the fullest extent. The only damage cap in state statute is on non-economic damages (for instance, pain and suffering) specifically for medical malpractice cases. If you're a plaintiff in a medical malpractice case in California, you can recover up to $250,000 in non-economic damages.
In every personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff faces the burden of proof to demonstrate that these elements exist:
Everyone owes a duty of care to the people around them, whether they're fellow drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians, retail store patrons, a doctor/patient relationship, or any other situation that relates one person to another. That means you have a duty to act or not act in a certain way in order to avoid causing harm to other people.
The staff was knowledgeable, showed great patience, and knew how to communicate complicated legal stuff in a way that was informing, and comforting. I was also able to do my entire case virtually! Nancee was great at keeping me organized and up to date with any important documents or meetings. Shawn professionalism in my case was impressive and he was very encouraging, while also honest. Definitely happy I found this team!
Shawn and Nancee exceeded my expectations. They were on top of my case and communicated clearly with me at every stage. They were always available with any of my concerns and responded quickly. Nancee scheduled all my appointments and got me all the help I needed quickly from start to finish. Shawn was able to negotiate with insurance co. to maximize the resulting settlement. Both Shawn and Nancee handled everything quickly and professionally. I can’t thank or recommend them enough for their efforts. They were a great team for me.
What can I say just an amazing law firm just amazing Thank you Nancy thank you Shawn for all you are doing If you need a good lawyer these are the people you should be calling they are on top of their game and through this whole covid pandemic situation going to the doctor's offices have been very safe I have not caught covid whatsoever through the past year of going to doctors they keep their offices very clean and sterile for their patients. Thank you all.
Shawn and his legal team went over and above the Call of Duty. My attorney Shawn negotiated my case with the insurance company and did a fantastic job I can't praise him enough.
I was referred to this team from a good friend and I'm so glad I called. Lady ran a red light and totaled my minivan. Broke my thumb and injured my neck and back. I worked mostly with Nancee the paralegal and she handled getting x-rays, MRI, and physical therapy for me. She fought for a fair settlement and kept me updated every step of the way. I didn't have to deal with anything. And this all started at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and statewide lockdown and they kept working hard for me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
This firm, especially Nancee and Shawn, are very much on it. They respond quickly whenever you have a question about your case and treat you like a real person. They handled all medical appointments and therapies I needed after my auto accident. I felt like I had a blanket of protection throughout entire process. I highly recommend Sheridan & Runs, PC. Ask for Shawn Karoba and Nancy Furuya.
Sheridan & Rund did a great job representing us in our accident case they we extremely informative constantly sending us up dates and won't settle for just anything extremely satisfied that we got what we deserved, not that I plan to get into any more accidents but If I do you better believe I'll be calling Sheridan & Rund to represent me!
My experience with Sheridan & Rund has been exceptional! I dealt mostly with Nancee and Jason. I can not speak highly enough about them and their Law Firm. My case was a difficult one because the lady who crashed into me was under insured. Nancee and Jason worked tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome and substantial settlement. Throughout the process they were courteous, professional and communicative. I felt that they were always on my side. I recommend them without hesitation and will be definitely referring them to my friends and family.
This is my second time Sheridan & Rund had helped me out with a car accident. I got to say I'm very happy with how Shawn and Nancee have handle my cases. From the consultation to the end they give you all the attention you need and try to find the best solutions. They are knowledgeable and accommodating. Thank you Shawn, Nancee, and team for your great commitment!
I was rear ended while in the back seat of a Lyft on my way home from LAX. I spoke with Nancee and Shawn the next day and retained them. They referred me to doctors for care and fought on my behalf to get the maximum settlement. They did an amazing job and I'm very grateful for their assistance and hard work. Nancee is the best! Thank you!
Absolutely wonderful. Shawn cares about his clients, be it big or small. (I know, he has handled two for me!) Amazing communication, very open and honest. Also, the support staff is equally wonderful. It's rare that's the legal supports communicate this much, or that they care as much as the staff at S&R. I know there are a lot of firms to go to for accident work, but these guys make the rest look bad.
This firm is truly a class act. I came in and spoke to Shawn after I got into an accident and he helped me with EVERYTHING. They are more than just lawyers here, they look out for their clients. I went through a lot of BS from the opposing insurance company, Shawn fought for me all the way through and got me a settlement beyond what I ever expected. Thank you, Shawn! I really owe you guys! Recommend to all!!!
When I got into automobile accident I was referred to contact Sheridan & Rund, and boy am I ever so thankful! Everyone there made the whole process smooth, clear, and were extremely helpful! I would definitely recommend to others!
