GJEL Accident Attorneys have demonstrated long-term success at obtaining maximum compensation for their injured clients. Our attorneys have recovered a total of over $400 million in verdicts and settlements from virtually every insurance company in the state, including:
- State Farm
- CSAA / AAA
- St. Paul
- Fireman’s Fund
- Liberty Mutual
- 21st Century
- Western United
- American General
Most of the funds recovered in California car accident and other personal injury cases come from insurance companies representing the individuals involved in the accident. Depending on the nature and causes of the accident, you may be eligible for compensation from the other driver’s insurance company, particularly if you were not at fault for the accident. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, there are cases in which the comparative negligence of the other driver makes it possible to recover a substantial verdict or settlement.
The legal team at GJEL was masterful in their negotiations, compromise, and legal skills…I will always be grateful.

If you have been seriously injured, it is important to consult with an attorney (even if you don’t end up hiring one) before talking to the insurance company of the person who caused the injury. An insurance dispute lawyer at GJEL will help you determine whether or not it is in your best interest to deal directly with the insurance company. There are certainly times when it is in your best interest to speak directly with the company’s insurance adjuster, but without professional legal advice, it is difficult to know if doing so may help your case or hurt it.
If you have been seriously injured, there are many potential traps and pitfalls from dealing directly with an insurance adjuster. Injury victims often end up giving a recorded statement, agreeing to be examined by a company doctor, or signing a release for something for which they did not mean to sign a release. It is only later that they learn these things were not in their interests.
Many accident law firms (including ours) offer free, confidential consultations. What sets a consultation with our firm apart is that you receive an immediate response directly from a lawyer at our firm, rather than waiting for days before someone responds to your phone message or email.
If we cannot help you with your case, we will provide you with information on alternative legal services and resources that may assist you. If you do end up hiring us to represent you, there are no fees until we win or settle your case.
