Do I Need an Attorney?
Yes. The insurance companies train claims adjusters to settle your case as quickly as possible for as little as possible. Do not talk to them! We will make sure you recover fair and reasonable compensation for all the harms and losses you have suffered. We handle all aspects of your claim, so you can concentrate on getting better.
What Are My Rights?
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you have rights:
Fair and Reasonable Compensation for All Pain and Suffering. Compensation for pain and suffering is the biggest part of any personal injury settlement or verdict. After an injury, you are entitled to only one settlement. It is important to know the full extent of your injuries before discussing settlement.
Immediate Medical Treatment and Future Medical Treatment. After an injury, it is important to get prompt medical treatment. If you do not have health insurance, your attorney can help arrange immediate medical treatment, with no payment due until the end of your case. If you have health insurance, your health insurance will expect to be reimbursed at the end of your case for medical bills they paid following your injury. We will negotiate with your health insurance company to make sure you keep as much of your settlement as possible.
Compensation for All Lost Wages. If your injury makes you unable to work, you have the right to be reimbursed for all lost wages.
Even when you use "sick time," you have the right to be reimbursed for the sick time you were forced to use.
Auto Repair or Replacement. If your car was damaged in an accident that was not your fault, you have the right to have your car repaired or replaced. You have the right to a rental car until your car is repaired or replaced.
An experienced personal injury attorney can get you into a rental car, usually the same day.
Will I Have to Go To Trial?
Probably not. Most cases settle before trial. Preparation for trial is the key to obtaining the maximum settlement or the best trial result. At the Law Offices of Howard Alan Kitay, our Chula Vista personal injury lawyers prepare every case for trial; as a result, our clients obtain the best possible result, usually without going to trial. We advance all costs, and if you don't win, you pay nothing.
