Why You Need a Lawyer
While everyone would prefer to have everything work out for them financially after an accident, that is generally not what happens. Insurance agents will often try to diminish what you went through so they can get away with paying out less than what you’re owed. This underhanded behavior makes recovering from an accident much more stressful than it needs to be. Being injured in a car accident is not only physically painful, but also mentally and financially taxing. So many people are injured in an accident and then treated terribly by insurance companies that don’t care about them unless they can make money off of them. Luckily, you don’t have to accept this. It’s possible to get the compensation you deserve, but to do it right, you’ll need someone on your side who you’re confident can help you come out of a lawsuit with a win under your belt. An experienced, trustworthy lawyer can ease the stress of expensive medical bills, loss of property, and mental and emotional trauma sustained during the accident by being by your side every step of the way, offering advice and taking on tasks that are difficult for someone who hasn’t handled them before. These tasks include: crafting an argument to present in court, collecting and analyzing evidence pertaining to the crash, interviewing witnesses, keeping track of court dates and deadlines, filing important paperwork, and, lastly, negotiating with insurance agents and other lawyers. Trying to do all of this by yourself, without the help of a lawyer, is not only going to be extremely stressful, but it’s also going to basically ensure that you lose your case. People who represent themselves very rarely win anything better than what the insurance company has already offered. You should be focusing on recovery and spending time with the people you love instead of slogging through complicated legal matters.

Cases We Handle
Getting around Carlsbad and the surrounding area is becoming more dangerous as the population grows. More people means more cars on the road, which means more accidents. As much as we’d all like to deny it, many people are guilty of being irresponsible drivers. Some examples of irresponsible driving that we see are:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol – Driving under the influence is illegal and extremely dangerous to other people on the road. In the state of California, someone with a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .08% or higher is assumed to be impaired and is prohibited from driving. While there are serious penalties for this behavior, including jail time, it’s sometimes not enough to dissuade people from getting behind the wheel when they’re drunk, causing injury and sometimes death to innocent people. Our firm protects people who have been hurt by drunk drivers from continuous hurt after the accident.
- Driving while under the influence of drugs – Driving while high is just as bad as driving while intoxicated. Even prescription drugs, when misused, can lead to loss of perception and result in car accidents.
- Distracted driving – Although distracted driving is usually thought of as texting and driving, which it is, distracted driving is also anytime a driver becomes preoccupied with an activity other than driving. Examples of distracted driving are attending to children or other passengers, messing with audio settings, eating lunch, putting on makeup, and talking on the phone. All of these activities, though people do them while they drive every day, can be very dangerous when they take the driver’s attention from the road. Even looking away for a few seconds can be enough to cause a fatal car crash.
- Failure to follow traffic laws – Travelling dangerously over or under the posted speed limit, running red lights and stop signs, and driving incorrectly down one-way streets are all examples of people simply not following traffic safety measures. This behavior can cause serious accidents that lead to terrible injuries, and it should be met with legal action.
Common injuries we see due to car accidents include whiplash, broken bones, bruising, lacerations, and head trauma. These injuries may even be caused by seemingly small accidents and can have far-reaching effects, possibly leading to surgeries, treatments, or chronic pain years after the accident occurs. Being hit by a negligent driver throws your whole life out of whack, not only for the moment, but for an indeterminate amount of time as you struggle to pay bills and recover from your injuries. It’s truly terrible that tragedies like this occur, but when they do, people should help other people get back on track. That’s our goal at Jurewitz Law Group, where we have been helping people in Carlsbad receive compensation for the types of accidents and injuries listed above for over a decade.
