Jurewitz Law Group Won’t Let You Get Screwed

Are you and your family struggling to make ends meet after an accident? If you or a family member was injured due to the negligent or reckless behavior of another party, you shouldn’t be stuck with medical bills and a lack of income from missed work. The person or company that caused your injury has an obligation to compensate you for any losses you’ve suffered. But to get that compensation, you’re going to have to go through their insurance company.

Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t care about your pain and suffering, medical bills, missed work, or how your injuries are going to affect the rest of your life. They only care about making a profit, and they make a profit by not paying injury victims what they deserve. San Diego’s Jurewitz Law Group won’t let you get screwed by the insurance industry and its unscrupulous lawyers.

For more than a decade, Jurewitz Law Group has been protecting the rights of injury victims in Southern California. We will stand by your side and fight to get you the compensation you deserve, not just what an insurance company chooses to pay you. For a free case evaluation, call us today at (888) 233-5020.

What Constitutes Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions; as opposed to damage to (or loss of) property. In order to have a viable personal injury claim, it must be shown that another party’s negligent, careless, or intentional behavior caused or contributed to your injury.

Common Causes of Personal Injury Claims

Common causes of injuries that result in personal injury claims are as follows:

In reality, any time you can show that another party’s actions were fully or partially responsible for your injuries, you have grounds for a personal injury claim.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get In a Personal Injury Claim?

The amount of compensation you can be awarded in a personal injury claim depends on the severity of your injuries and the degree of fault of the other party. To illustrate how a personal injury claim works, let’s take a hypothetical situation:

You are crossing the street, in a crosswalk. A driver who is texting runs a red light and hits you, causing severe injuries, including broken facial bones, road rash, and more. A successful personal injury lawsuit could get you compensation for:

  • Your medical bills resulting from the accident.
  • Future medical bills caused by your accident: In this case, you are going to need future skin grafts and other procedures due to multiple broken bones.
  • Pain and suffering the injuries caused.
  • Mental anguish and emotional duress: In many cases, physical trauma can cause non-physical injuries, such as PTSD or panic attacks that will require therapy.
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
  • Permanent injury or handicap: The accident left you with a permanent limp that makes walking difficult and painful.
  • Household and vehicle modifications: Suppose the damage to your leg kept you in a wheelchair for several months. You could be compensated for the cost of wheelchair ramps at your residence, and lifts to get your wheelchair into a vehicle.
  • Scarring and disfigurement: The accident caused permanent scars to your face, which can affect your social and professional life.
  • Lost wages: If your injuries caused you to miss work, you can be compensated for the income you lost.
  • Loss of career or earning capacity: Suppose the damage to your leg was so severe that you can no longer perform your usual work duties, such as climbing ladders or standing for long periods of time. If that’s the case, you could be compensated for the loss of your career and the money you would have earned in that line of work.
  • Reduced earning capacity: Suppose your injuries allow you to keep working in your former profession, but in a limited capacity, such as only four hours per day.
  • Occupational therapy and retraining: You could be compensated for cost of training for an occupation you can work at while sitting down.
  • Hedonic damages: Suppose that, in your spare time, you enjoy running marathons. The injuries to your leg will prevent you from ever running again. In such a case, you can seek compensation for loss of joy of life.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in San Diego?

In California, you generally have a maximum of two years to submit your personal injury claim to the court. In order to build an airtight case and successfully obtain damages for your injuries, you’ll need to act quickly. It is highly recommended that you speak with a personal injury attorney if you are considering a lawsuit. We know what steps to take first.

Speak to a Personal Injury Attorney First

As we said earlier, insurance companies aren’t concerned about the hardships you and your family are suffering after an injury. They just want you to accept their inadequate offer and disappear. But remember, you don’t have to accept an insurance company’s offer, even if they try to pressure you and tell you that if you don’t accept it, you’ll get nothing. Instead, talk to us.

The experienced personal injury team at Jurewitz Law Group will deal with the insurance companies involved and work hard to make sure that the payout you receive covers your losses. To find out more, call (888) 233-5020 for a free consultation.
