It is in your best interest to contact us as soon as possible after you have been injured. Your claim has to be filed with the responsible party’s insurance carrier. Evidence has to be gathered and preserved. Witness statements have to be taken. The records of your medical treatment have to be analyzed and organized. Your medical expenses need to be tracked. Your wage loss has to be documented. Deadlines mandated by the courts and state law must be met. You can trust us to make sure that nothing relevant to your case is overlooked.

If you do not have health insurance or cannot afford medical care, it may be difficult for you to find a doctor. We can help. We can refer you to doctors, hospitals, therapists, and other healthcare providers who will treat our clients on a lien basis; that is, they will agree to wait for payment until your case is settled.

Our attorneys and professional staff recognize that your case is unique and that you should be represented in a way that reflects your particular injuries and circumstances. We meticulously record and present every pertinent detail of your claim to assure that your case will be successfully resolved, either by direct negotiations with the insurance company, through mediation, or at trial.

Your Personal Injury Lawyer

Law BookshelfThe stresses of being injured in an accident can be overwhelming. Not only will you be in pain, you may feel confused, anxious, worried, frightened, or angry. Right now, your primary concern should be caring for your injuries. But, if you are not represented by an experienced personal injury attorney, you will also have to deal with a barrage of telephone calls, paperwork, and appointments. This is the time when you will be vulnerable to mistakes that may later prove costly. Beware of any attempt by a representative of the other party to obtain a statement from you. Use caution in dealing with people who offer to settle or adjust your claim. Do not sign anything before consulting with an attorney at the Law Offices of Catharine Kroger-Diamond.
Your personal injury lawyer will guide you through the intricacies of managing your claim, so you can concentrate on what is most important to you – healing your injuries and getting back to your life. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Catharine Kroger-Diamond will make sure you have the sound advice you need to make informed beneficial decisions regarding your case. Throughout the settlement or litigation process, we will keep you advised of the status of your claim, and we will involve you in the choice of accepting or rejecting settlement offers. Our priority is to make sure you are treated fairly and obtain the maximum monetary recovery that you are due.

Statutes of Limitation

Filing your claim Keep in mind that the law imposes time limitations on filing lawsuits, and you will be forever barred from recovery if you wait too long. You must preserve your rights by filing your claim within the time period specified by the statutes of limitation. These vary depending on the circumstances of your claim. In California, most personal injury claims must be filed within two years. However, the time limit for filing is shorter if your claim is against a government entity; it is longer if you are filing on behalf of a minor. To assure that your claim is appropriately filed within the time limits specified by law, you should obtain legal representation as soon as possible after you have been injured.
