When you have been hurt or lost a loved one in an accident that was not your fault, The Law Office of Frank S. Clowney III can help you seek compensation for your loss. I represent people injured on the job, hurt in motor vehicle accidents, injured in slip-and-fall accidents and hurt in other kinds of accidents.
I understand the issues facing people injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident or another type of accident. They need to work on recovering physically and adjusting to the unexpected and unasked-for changes in their lives. They should not have to be given a hard time by insurance companies or their employers. With my help, this won’t happen. I have helped people who suffered a spinal or a head injury, burn, paralysis or other serious injury recover damages from insurance companies.
Medical bills, lost wages and an uncertain future can all be part and parcel of an injury. As an experienced, aggressive and thorough personal injury attorney, I seek full and fair compensation for all losses that my clients have incurred.
Losses are generally broken down as follows:
I know how insurers operate and have extensive experience overcoming the hurdles they may throw up to avoid payment of medical bills or rightfully incurred losses. Because of the length and depth of my personal injury legal experience, I know when the insurers are offering too little, and I also know when I need to push all the way to trial to help you obtain the compensation that you need to get on with your life.
Personal injury law is rarely straightforward. When you have a serious injury, however, you will need to know what to do to recover. At The Law Office of Frank S. Clowney III, I take ample time to explain the options and legal process to my clients. Read my personal injury FAQ below and call my San Diego firm at 619-557-0458 to get more answers today.
When a crash happens anywhere in California, safety should be your priority. Check to see if you or anyone else involved needs emergency medical help. If urgent medical help is not necessary, move to a safe location, exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver, and report the incident to the police.
However, do not admit fault or apologize to anyone. Simply state what happened to the police. It is best to avoid speaking with insurance agents until you consult with a car accident lawyer first. What you do in the moments and days following a crash could determine whether you can get compensation – or whether the other driver could file a claim against you.
Often, one of the clearest signs of a good lawyer is their experience. With decades of solving personal injury cases, a lawyer may be able to anticipate any obstacles in your case. They are also more likely to know how to solve complex problems involving insurance or other legal matters.
Your attorney must also be able to handle your case with skill. In addition to having comprehensive legal knowledge, they should be strategic, loyal and compassionate. Your lawyer should make you feel respected and heard. When working to recover from severe injuries, compassion can make all the difference.
Contingency fees mean that your lawyer will only charge you for their services if they can secure compensation for you. If your lawyer wins your case, you can pay them a percentage of the recovery they helped you obtain. If your attorney cannot win your case, you do not have to pay for services beyond limited court filing fees.
A contingency fee plan benefits injured clients. If you suffered a serious injury, you already have medical bills to pay, lost income and other costs related to your case. Contingency fees prevent further financial loss if you do not gain compensation to cover the damages. Legal fees should not have to stop you from getting the money and justice you need.
I have helped people recover compensation for serious injuries suffered in dog bites, slip-and-falls, animal attacks, construction accidents, work accidents, boat accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, and motor vehicle accidents.
