San Diego Serious Injury Lawyers
The San Diego, California serious injury lawyers at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers work closely with individuals who have been seriously hurt due to the negligence or neglect of another person or party. Serious injury claims can be more complicated than other types of injury claims. Insurance companies may scrutinize these claims more closely because they may involve larger settlements, and they may ask for more evidence during the claims process. Seeking damages can also be more complex because after a serious injury an individual might be disabled or in need of long-term rehabilitation, requiring a larger settlement than a minor injury claim. If you or someone you love was seriously injured, reach out to the serious injury lawyers in San Diego, at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers.
If you have suffered a serious injury caused by a car accident, truck accident, boating accident, aviation accident or other motor vehicle accident, you are likely overwhelmed by pain and suffering, as well as by mounting medical costs and/or property damages. The losses following a serious injury can be quite financially devastating. Families might not only face high medical expenses, but may face medical expenses in the future stemming from their serious injury. Victims may require ongoing nursing care, rehabilitation, and other services, and these costs can add up quickly. In addition to these expenses, individuals may miss time from work, resulting in even more losses. These losses also don’t account for other damages which may not be so easy to quantify.

How an Accident Claim Lawyer in San Diego, California Can Help You
If you’ve been injured in a serious accident in San Diego, California, the accident claims lawyers at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers may be able to assist you.
An accident claims lawyer in San Diego, California at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers can help you navigate the complexities of the claims process, so you and your family can focus on what matters: healing. Here are some ways we can help:
- Estimating the Value of Your Serious Injury Claim. The value of your serious injury claim will depend upon many factors. The value of your medical bills, the estimated future medical and rehabilitation costs, and lost wages due to missed time at work can all play a role in the value of your claim. Other factors can also play an important role, including the percentage of negligence of the at-fault party (sometimes the other party isn’t found to be 100% at fault), and the value of other damages, including pain and suffering. Pain and suffering damages will depend largely on the seriousness of your injury and whether your accident will have left you disabled. The serious injury lawyers in San Diego, California at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers can estimate the value of your claim and may be able to help you with the recovery process.
- Negotiating With Insurance Adjusters. In the aftermath of a serious injury insurance companies are required to honor their contractual obligations. However, sometimes insurance companies might offer clients a lower settlement than they may deserve, or they may require more detailed documentation of the accident. A serious injury attorney in San Diego, California at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers can help you understand what your claim might be worth, help you understand the insurance company’s obligations to you, and help you navigate the complexities of the claims process.
- Writing Demand Letters to Negligent Parties. An accident claim lawyer in San Diego, California at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers can identify negligent parties and write demand letters to help you get the settlement you may deserve under the law. Some accident claims can be more serious than others. For example, a truck accident claim may involve multiple stakeholders, including truck drivers, truck companies, shipping companies and more.

- Take Your Case to Court. Many claims can be settled outside of court, through negotiation or through demand letters. However, sometimes cases need to be taken to court. Insurance adjusters and negligent parties may be more likely to take your claim seriously if they know you’re working with a lawyer willing to take your case to court. The accident claim attorneys in San Diego, California at Jeffrey Estes Injury Lawyers can help you every step of the way, when we take on your case.
