Do I Really Need a San Diego Apartment Complex Accident Lawyer?
Yes. The insurance companies employ experienced claims adjusters to settle your case for as little as possible. Their bonuses are based on tricking you into an unfair settlement as quickly as possible. Let’s face it, after an accident, many people are upset, injured, in pain, on medication, without a vehicle, and want their life back to normal as quickly as possible. The insurance adjusters know this and prey on it. Do not talk to them! You need an attorney to represent YOUR interests and make sure you are protected now and in the future. And, at the end of the case, you want to make sure your attorney gets you the maximum settlement value for your damages. The Law Offices of Howard Kitay will handle all aspects of your case, and get you the settlement you deserve, while you concentrate on getting better.

Who is responsible for my injuries in an apartment building accident?
There are hundreds of apartment center complexes in San Diego County. Many are owned by large corporations such as Avalon Communities and Shea Properties. Others are owned by small local companies or individual private owners. Both residents and visitors can be injured at apartment complexes. Many apartment injuries occur as a result of property management negligence or failure to maintain acceptable safety standards. Property management companies and apartment owners have a responsibility to their residents to maintain a safe environment for residents and visitors alike. Tragically, apartment complex injuries occur frequently because apartment complex owners neglect the responsibilities they have to their tenants. This negligence can lead to unsafe property conditions and can ultimately lead to serious injury and wrongful death.
If you have been injured in an apartment building accident anywhere in San Diego County, get immediate medical care and then hire an apartment building accident lawyer. At the Law Offices of Howard Kitay, we specialize in apartment building accident cases, and we know how to win.

What do I do first?
GET MEDICAL TREATMENT IMMEDIATELY.
Any DELAY in getting treatment will be used by the insurance company to show you were not very injured, and instead sought treatment just to bring a “legal case.” If you don’t have health insurance or enough money to see a doctor, we can assist you in getting a qualified doctor right away; we can arrange for the doctor to wait for payment until the end of your case. After you start treatment, any GAP in treatment will be used by the insurance company to show you were not very injured, and instead sought treatment just to bring a “legal case.” At this point, you might see a theme. Insurance companies will say your injury was your own fault and you are exaggerating whatever injuries you really have.
How do I prove my injuries?
The best way to prove your injuries is to treat them with a doctor and tell the doctor everything that is bothering you. The doctor will record your complaints in the medical record, which documents and helps prove your injuries.
