Law Office of Jeffrey A. Moss

Personal Injury – Auto Accidents

If you are injured in an accident, you need expert and experienced legal counsel; very important legal rights and your recovery are at stake. We do not represent insurance companies; our only goal is to provide the best possible service and settlement to our injured clients. We are experts in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycles, bicycles and trucks and other types of injuries (but not work related injuries. If you have a work related injury let us know and we can refer you to a Workers Compensation attorney who will help you). Experience in filing insurance claims and prosecuting insurance lawsuits is very important; we provide you with that experience, leaving you free to concentrate on getting better.

If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you are entitled to compensation for both economic losses (including medical bills, property damage, past and future wage loss, accident related out of pocket expenses, as well as compensation for pain and suffering. We try hard to avoid litigation because it is costly, time consuming and stressful for you, especially if you are still trying to recover from your injuries. However, if the insurance company will not cooperate and does not offer you a fair settlement, we will take them to court and help you through that process.

Things to remember:

1) The time for filing a lawsuit for personal injury in California is two years. This means you need to settle your claim or file a lawsuit in court before this two year anniversary. Speak to an attorney soon to make sure there is time to present and negotiate your claim before you have to go to court.

2) When your health insurance company pays for treatment related to an accident, it usually requires reimbursement out of the settlement. We try to secure the highest possible settlement from the insurance company of the person who injured you and negotiate the lowest possible reimbursement for your health plan insurer. This puts more money in your pocket in the end.

3) Remember not to sign anything or speak to anyone about your accident until you speak to a lawyer. Despite what you may be told, you do not have to give the insurance company a statement and remember, the insurance company is not your friend. Their job is to see that you are paid as little as possible and will use anything you may say (to a stranger, your family or friends) against you if it is their interest to do so.
