San Diego Personal Injury Attorneys

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. Call us at (888) 998-2031 to tell us about your case in a free evaluation today!

What Types of Damages are Available in Personal Injury Cases?

Compensation in personal injury cases will account mostly for medical bills. Other expenses that may be compensable include lost wages, travel costs, and more. In some cases, non-economic damages are compensable as well. An injury victim’s ability to recover these damages depends on how compensation will be paid and the strength of each side’s case.

Medical Bills

Medical bills usually account for the majority of expenses in a personal injury case. Your health should be your top priority after sustaining an injury, and getting proper treatment is crucial. Through a successful personal injury claim, you can receive compensation for the medical bills you have already paid, as well as benefits to pay for the medical expenses that may arise in the future.

Lost Wages

If your injury has affected your ability to work, you may be entitled to compensation for the wages you lost. Like compensation for medical bills, the compensation for your lost wages may account for both past and future expenses. Compensation may even be available if you have continued to work through your injury but have had to do so in a limited capacity and earn lower wages.

Additional Expenses

Your injury may have resulted in additional expenses other than medical bills and lost wages. You may have needed to pay for the cost of traveling to and from medical appointments. While incapacitated, you may have paid for help with cleaning, home maintenance, and other services. It could be possible for you to recover compensation for these other injury-related expenses as well.

Non-Economic Damages

Injuries can also cause extensive non-economic damages as well. Non-economic damages are damages that are not physical, financial, or tangible — such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish. Although these damages do not have a monetary value, it is possible to recover compensation for them through a personal injury claim as well.

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
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • 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.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

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.
