Point Loma Personal Injury Lawyer
Do you know what to do if somebody hits you in an car accident and leaves you with the consequences in the form of serious injuries? Whether it’s a head and back injury, a spinal cord injury or any other injury type, you may be entitled to recover compensation under California’s personal injury laws.
Unfortunately, far too many victims in vehicle accidents such as those involving cars, trucks or motorcycles may not realize the full range of their rights. They may be pressured into accepting a settlement amount offered by the insurance company early on thus compromising their ability to recover compensation.
Once you accept a settlement amount from the insurance company, you will typically sign a release that means you can never pursue a legal claim against them. But what happens if the settlement amount you’ve accepted doesn’t cover the full scope of the injuries you’ve sustained and the damage that it’s created? Unfortunately, in these cases if you accept a settlement amount you are barring yourself from ever being able to pursue the responsible entities in a legal claim like this again.
This can have devastating impacts on your life for you as well as your family members. If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident, contact The May Firm for a free case consultation. We have convenient office locations in San Diego and Carlsbad to best serve you.

In order for an accident victim to recover damages associated with the injuries from an accident, the accident should have been caused by someone else’s fault. When injuries in collisions result from someone else’s negligence and these could have been prevented, this can form the basis of a personal injury claim. Did you know that only 2% of vehicle collisions are associated with degraded or failed components of the vehicle?
The vast majority of vehicle accidents are caused by human error and when someone else’s reckless behavior causes injuries and changes your life for the worse, you may be entitled to recover compensation.
