2017 New Year’s Resolution: Knowledge Is Power

Andrew Mendlin Blog Leave a Comment

At Curtis Legal Group, we spent the 2016 holiday season reflecting on the past year and reviewing new approaches and new ideas to help our clients get fair and just compensation for their personal injuries.

We know that the insurance companies are doing just the opposite.  The insurance companies are in the laboratories investigating new methods of minimizing your injury claims in an effort to raise profits at your expense.

If you have been injured in an accident, then your New Year’s resolution should be to get informed.  We have all heard that “knowledge is power.”  Well, it is.  You are harming yourself if you don’t contact Curtis Legal Group.  The insurance companies are not in business to inform you about your injury claim.  In fact, you may get misinformation.  Even worse, you may settle your injury claim for pennies on the dollar.  Our team is ready to assist you and avoid such a result.

Besides the above, there are various statutes of limitation that prevent you from making your injury claim after a certain amount of time has passed.  For example, if you have an injury claim against a governmental agency in California, e.g. if you tripped on a city sidewalk, then you typically need to file a governmental entity claim within 6 months of the accident giving rise to your injury.  Otherwise, you could lose your rights to pursue any compensation.

As another example, California requires that you file suit in a court of law against a non-governmental agency within 2 years of the accident date causing your injuries.  If a suit is not filed, then, you will most likely lose your rights to seek any monetary damages for your injuries.

These statutes of limitation, amongst others not mentioned, all vary depending on the facts of the case.    It is important that you get informed.  You may still have time to pursue your rights.

Make it your New Year’s resolution to get informed about your injury claim.  We know the insurance companies stay informed, so why don’t you?
