A: It is important to remember that insurance companies are interested in protecting their profits, not your best interests. So, it is likely your insurance adjuster is advising you against getting your own legal representation because s/he knows that a lawyer will help you get the best claim possible, and thus cutting into the insurance company's profits. Do what is best for your situation. Consult with a qualified personal injury lawyer in Carlsbad right away.
A: Perhaps one of the most frequently asked questions we receive, it is understandable that accident victims are concerned about costs. The main goal of taking legal action is to secure financial compensation for the various expenses you've accrued as a result of your accident. Let us assure you that our firm not only provides FREE consultations, but we also offer our legal services on a contingency basis. This means that if our Carlsbad injury attorneys represent your claim, you do not owe us attorney fees or out of pocket expenses; our payment is simply a percentage of the final verdict or settlement we win on your behalf.
A: The sooner you take legal action, the better your chances of securing the best possible outcome. In the state of California, the deadline (statute of limitations) for most personal injury claims is within two years from the date the injury was sustained or discovered. If you fail to file your claim or suit before the statute of limitations expires, you could forfeit your right to take legal action at all. Do not let this happen. Contact an attorney to evaluate your circumstances.
A: The amount of money you are entitled to will depend on the severity of your injuries and the type of accident, such as a car crash, truck accident, slip and fall, or defective product accident. You may receive compensation for the following past, current, and future damages:
- Costs of medical care
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning ability
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Funeral/burial expenses
However, the amount you are entitled to and the amount that you receive will also depend on those who represent your claim. Your insurance provider may attempt to minimize or outright deny your rightful claim, whereas a lawyer will pursue compensation for the full scope of damages you have suffered.
A: You may be questioning whether you have the right to take legal action after an injury accident. Personal injury law deals with disputes between individuals or entities in which one party believes the other is legally responsible for the harm s/he has suffered. If you were involved in a vehicle accident, for example, and the other party caused the crash as a result of carelessness or willful wrongdoing, you will likely have a legitimate claim. Contact a Carlsbad injury lawyer at the Jurewitz Law Group to evaluate your situation and determine whether legal action is the right choice.
