Battling the Insurance Giants

We know how to do battle with large and powerful insurance companies who want to persuade you to settle for the small amount they are prepared to offer you, knowing you probably have little idea of the true value of your case. They will often tell you that you don’t need a lawyer.

If you’ve been injured, the adjuster for the at-fault party’s insurance company may be after you to get a recorded statement, insisting on having you sign medical authorizations. They may also try offering a quick and easy settlement and you may be uncertain as to how to proceed. The personal injury attorneys at the Kitay law firm are available to review your case with you and give you an overview of your legal options—at no cost to you whatsoever and with no strings attached. Our attorneys are not only skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced, we are deeply committed to justice for the injured.

About Personal Injury Law in California

Personal injury law is the area of civil law in which accident victims can seek financial compensation by proving that someone else’s negligence, wanton disregard for the safety of others, or intent to harm, caused their injuries. To make this system work in your favor, you must understand the California statutes that may affect your case. Three laws you should know are as follows:

  1. Statute of limitations. You must act quickly to secure compensation for a personal injury accident. In California, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim, in most cases.
  2. Car accident laws. California is an at-fault car accident state, meaning you will seek initial recovery after a car crash from the at-fault party’s insurance company. You will have to prove the other driver’s fault to recover compensation.
  3. Shared fault laws. The California courts may assign percentages of fault to multiple parties, including the claimant, in a personal injury case. You can recover at least partial compensation even if you were 99% at fault for an accident. Hiring a lawyer can make the civil justice process easier for you after a serious accident in El Cajon or La Mesa. Your attorney can handle difficult aspects of your claim such as evidence preservation and building a case on your behalf while you focus on your family and healing. Our lawyers know exactly how to negotiate with insurance companies for top-dollar case settlements. If your case needs to go to trial for fair recovery, however, we have years of courtroom experience.

Potential Damages in El Cajon Personal Injury Claims

Injuries can have a significant impact on your everyday life, depending on their severity and their circumstances. Under California law, you can claim compensation for the losses that your injuries cause you, as long as the injuries were not your fault. You can receive funds to compensate for both economic damages and noneconomic damages. Available damages in a personal injury accident include:

  • Past and future medical expenses, including hospitalizations, surgeries, medications, mobility equipment, and physical therapy
  • Lost wages because you had to stay home from work to recover from your injuries
  • Property damage sustained during the accident, such as damage to your home or motor vehicle
  • Physical pain and suffering, such as chronic pain, impairment, and disability
  • Mental pain and suffering, such as loss of quality of life, emotional anguish, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Only certain people have the right to file lawsuits after personal injury accidents in California. To win your case, you must show four main things. First, that the other party (the defendant) owed you a duty of care. Second, that he or she breached this duty through some act of neglect or intent to harm. Third, that this breach of duty caused your accident. Fourth, that you suffered damages as a result. Damages refer to both the harms you suffered and the monetary awards you may receive for your claim.
