Were you or a family member injured in an accident? Our team will help you hold the liable party responsible for your injuries and damages.

Call the KJT Law Group team as soon as possible to get started. Our law firm would be glad to assess your case at no cost or obligation to you.

You Have Two Years to File an Injury Lawsuit in California

Per CCP § 335.1, you have only two years to file a lawsuit against the party who caused your injury. If you fail to do so, you risk recovering nothing. While you still have the right to negotiate for fair compensation, you cannot threaten to sue, so you don’t have the leverage you may need to persuade the insurance company.

We recommend that you get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can manage deadlines and protect your rights. 

Does Your Injury Entitle You to Economic Damages?

If you lost money (or if you will likely lose money in the future) because of this accident, then yes, you could be eligible for compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of income and benefits
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Miscellaneous accident-related expenses
  • Property damage

Can I Also Recover Non-Economic Damages?

“Non-economic” is a catchall category for the physical, mental, and emotional distress you have endured as a result of the negligent party. If your injury has caused you any or all of the following, KJT Law Group can seek non-economic damages on your behalf:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and trauma
  • Scar tissue
  • Disability
  • Reduced quality of life

If you lost a loved one due to an accident in Downey, our team offers our most sincere condolences. We can file a wrongful death action on your behalf, seeking the justice and compensation you deserve. 

How Our Personal Injury Law Firm Supports Downey Clients

We understand that you have been through a painful, traumatizing event. On top of the distress caused by the accident itself, you now have to worry about supporting your family and regaining your health as much as possible.

You do not have to manage your lawsuit by yourself on top of all the other things you are dealing with. Our personal injury attorney serving Downey can represent you by:

Identifying Key Aspects of Your Personal Injury Case

Identifying the liable party and figuring out how much your case is worth can be difficult. KJT Law Group handles all the following on your behalf:

  • Speaking with everyone involved in the case, including the liable party, their insurance company, and any witnesses who were present at the time
  • Gathering documentary evidence from your doctor, the police, and the liable party
  • Working with expert witnesses
  • Reviewing any available photos or video footage
  • Building a strong case

Negotiating a Personal Injury Settlement

Negotiation is a vital part of many cases. By sitting down with the liable party’s insurer and working out an appropriate agreement, we can potentially:

  • Put money in your pocket relatively quickly (compared with the process of going through a trial)
  • Avoid having to go to court
  • End your case to the satisfaction of both parties

If, for any reason, negotiations are not a viable option in your case, we are not afraid to take your case to court and fight for a jury award.

Explaining the Legal System in California

Depending on your situation, you might have to navigate a variety of local, state, and federal laws in order to succeed in your legal case. Any mistake—even if it is the result of an innocent misinterpretation—could put your case in real trouble.

To help clients avoid the pitfalls of the legal system, our Downey personal injury lawyers make sure to explain each client’s rights in detail, provide as much advice as the client wants, and keep the client updated on a regular basis. Call KJT Law Group to find out more for free.

We Handle Downey Insurance Companies

Our Downey personal injury attorneys are proud to help clients with cases of all kinds, from auto accidents and workplace injuries to medical malpractice and premises liability cases.

While each of these cases offers very different challenges, they all have one thing in common: the presence of insurance companies who are often reluctant to pay a fair settlement.

The Role of Insurers in Downey Personal Injury Cases

In most situations, the negligent party has an insurance policy designed to pay damages on their behalf. This way, the liable party does not have to pay out of pocket for the harm they caused.

On paper, the insurer’s job is to fairly assess each case, determine whether their client was liable, and pay a just sum for the damage their client did. In practice, insurers sometimes try to avoid their responsibilities.

Tactics Insurers May Use to Avoid Paying Injured People or Their Families

Insurance companies have developed many methods of underpaying people like you—or even avoiding paying anything. Some red flags to watch out for include:

  • Being asked for a recorded statement. The insurer may use the recording against you down the road. Politely decline the request and direct any questions to us.
  • Being offered a fast settlement. Quick settlements may not reflect the true value of your case. Our team will review each offer to ensure it covers your expenses, losses, and pain and suffering.
  • Being told the insurer will not negotiate. The insurer may imply that you will never get any compensation if you reject the initial offer. However, you have the right to negotiate. We can fight for a better settlement even if you turn down their offer.

How to Handle Insurance Companies After a Personal Injury

If the insurer tries to contact you, do not answer. Instead, tell them to direct all communication to your lawyer. Then, either give them our contact information or start the process of hiring a personal injury attorney right away.

KJT Law Group knows how insurers operate, and we also know how to interact with them in a way that does not endanger our clients’ cases. With our help, you can fight for the money you need without having to worry if you are being taken advantage of.
