Auto accidents occur every day in San Diego County. In 2012, San Diego County reported 270 fatalities from motor vehicle accidents. Some accident are caused by innocent mistakes, others because of reckless, distracted, or intoxicated drivers. And while there may be many different reasons why car accidents occur, they frequently have the same outcome - a seriously injured person.
If you have been injured in an auto accident, the most important thing you can do is heal. In serious accidents, you may have been transported by ambulance to the emergency department. In less severe accidents, you may not develop symptoms until days or weeks later. Your health is most important. We work with several different doctors and chiropractic doctors to make sure you are well.
Mr. Kleven understands that making a claim for injuries after an accident can be a frustrating and painful process. Insurance companies seem to make it as difficult as possible, and when a person should be focusing on their health and getting better, they find themselves trying to gather paperwork, filling out forms, and arguing on the telephone with an insurance adjuster who seems not to care. When someone has suffered an injury, this is the last thing they need. Contact our offices today to schedule a free consultation to learn more about how we can help you.
In California, car accident injury claims usually must be filed two (2) years from the date of the accident. If the claim is not resolved by settlement (usually with the insurance companies) then a lawsuit should be filed within two (2) years of the accident or the claimant will be forever barred from seeking money damages for personal injuries resulting from the accident. Therefore, it is essential that injured parties who believe they have a claim seek out professional assistance as soon as possible after the accident in order to best protect their rights.
