Personal Injury Attorneys in San Diego
Working to Hold Responsible Parties Accountable
The law defines personal injury as an injury to you, your family, or your
reputation. A personal injury can be caused by a criminal assault, a vehicle
collision, flooding, mold, uneven pavement, or even an underground tank
buried near your home. When you are injured because a person or company
ignores common sense, safety measures or the rules of law designed to
protect us all, they are responsible for the injury. You deserve to pursue
just compensation and our firm is here to help you fight for your rights.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
Due to the complexities of personal injuries, the State of California has
statutes of limitations set for the varying accident types. For instance,
the statute of limitations for car and motorcycle accidents is two years
while victims of medical malpractice have up to three years from the date
of their accident to file a claim. Just as each accident type is unique,
each individual accident has its own complexities and the statute of limitations
can vary dependent upon the nature of your injury. Navigating life after
an accident can be difficult. Victims of personal injuries may benefit
from consulting a skilled personal injury attorney who can advise victims
of their opportunities for financial recovery and what important steps
should be taken. In the days following your accident there may be documents
or evidence that can be helpful in your case. Working with an attorney
has many benefits and can allow you the time to focus on recovery while
we focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.
That is why
our personal injury attorneys are here to protect your rights and fight for the compensation that you
deserve. Tell us about your case in a

Representing Injury Victims for 25+ Years
For 25 years,
Allen Semelsberger & Kaelin, LLP attorneys have helped many clients—people who have been seriously injured as the result of a criminal
assault, flooding, mold, or because of toxic chemicals contaminating their
water or land. The results of these incidents can be devastating, including
brain injuries, death, and lifelong health struggles. At Allen Semelsberger
& Kaelin, LLP, we believe every person is entitled to a safe living
and working environment. When others ignore the rules of law that keep
us safe, they are playing Russian roulette with our safety. Sometimes
these rule breakers get away with their unsafe conduct. Unfortunately,
when they do, they can cause tremendous damage, such as:
- Brain and head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Burns, scarring, and disfigurement
- Badly broken bones
- Partial or total loss of vision or hearing
If someone has violated a safety rule and you have been hurt, get
legal help today. While we can’t restore what was broken, we have dedicated ourselves
to obtaining full compensation for the harm suffered.
Suffered a Catastrophic Injury?
Some injuries simply heal with time. Other injuries are much more severe
and may cause permanent disability and complications. Catastrophic injuries
can be caused in all sorts of ways from accidents on construction worksites
to medical malpractice and defective consumer products. In addition to
physical pain, injured individuals often face the costs and difficulties
of major surgery, rehabilitative therapy, and sometimes even permanent
assisted living care.
Millions of Dollars In Verdicts and Settlements
We have helped obtain millions of dollars in compensation for injured victims.
Allen Semelsberger & Kaelin, LLP previously helped residents of 18 homes
recover 3.6 million in compensation for drinking water that was contaminated with high levels
of manganese and iron. We also helped recover $4,550,000 in damages for
drinking water in the Paradise Ranch community that did not meet state
regulations and $3,000,000 for medical conditions related to mold contamination.
Let Us Create a Strategic Case on Your Behalf
Just as we have helped people who have been harmed and suffered personal

by listening to you and understanding the harm done to you. Working with
experts, we research and document each contributing factor until we can
