Injury Claims We Can Handle

Accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. Though you can take precautions to protect yourself from injury, another person’s negligence is out of your control.

If you have been injured in an accident, Klein DeNatale Goldner can step in and guide you through the legal process ahead. Our personal injury attorneys go the extra mile to obtain favorable results for clients throughout California.

We handle claims involving:

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

According to the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, the statute of limitations in California is two years, this means you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation. If you claim is against a city, county or government agency you have only six months to file a claim.

Do Not Settle for Less than You Deserve

In the aftermath of an accident, as you are struggling with:

  • Juggling doctor’s appointments
  • Time out of work
  • Significant property damage

you may receive a call from the insurance company offering you a settlement. In nearly every case, this is a lowball offer that the insurance company hopes you will take without question.

The insurance company does not have your back – they are, first and foremost, a business. Before you answer another call from an insurance adjuster, reach out to the professionals at Klein DeNatale Goldner. We can review your claim and – with the help of industry experts like doctors and financial advisers – determine how much compensation you are entitled to. From there, we can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
