Helping You Recover Damages

Car accidents can cause any number of injuries and damages. GJEL’s car accident lawyers are ready to help you recover damages in or out of court. Whether it is negotiating with insurance companies, helping you add up medical bills, or filing an injury lawsuit to recover your claim, you can count on GJEL Accident Attorneys as your key ally throughout the legal process.

Helping You Assess and Prove Fault

The percentage of fault attributed to each party in a car accident is an important aspect of California’s legal process. California uses a pure comparative fault system to determine liability for damages in car accidents. In such a system, the percentage of fault attributed to you corresponds with the percentage of total damages you can recover from the opposing party. If the opposing party claims you were at fault, we will go to bat for you to fix things up.

Your Primary Point of Contact

You might get all sorts of unwanted communications as you try to recover and navigate the legal process. Insurance claim adjusters, medical bill collectors, or even opposing attorneys can pressure you to make decisions that aren’t in your best interest. With GJEL’s car accident attorneys on your side, you can forward all of those calls to us. We’ll take care of them for you.

Our Attorneys Don’t Just Help with Car Accidents—GJEL Also Has Experienced Teams of Motorcycle Accident Lawyers and Truck Accident Lawyers

Trucking is a common occupation in the Antioch area, so truck accidents are a common occurrence. Truck accidents can lead to significant damages and injuries. If a truck driver hits you, the driver or the trucking company may be at fault. Our team of Antioch-based truck accident lawyers will fight to get you the full compensation you deserve, so you can recover from your injuries.

Given the natural beauty and refreshing climate of our area, motorcycles are popular. Plenty of people ride motorcycles as their commuter vehicle or as a hobby. Despite your best efforts to ride safely on your motorcycle, an accident is always a possibility. GJEL’s motorcycle accident lawyers know exactly how to help you navigate the legal process after an accident, connect you with the right medical professionals, and take care of all the administrative details so you can focus on recovering.

GJEL’s Wrongful Death Lawyer and Brain Injury Lawyers

The wrongful death lawyers at GJEL understand how impactful the wrongful death of a loved one is. Not only are you dealing with the psychological trauma of a lost loved one, but there are also practical and economic implications.

If a loved one passes away due to someone else’s negligence, you may be due a significant amount of compensation. The wrongful death lawyers at GJEL will take care of the legal process, so you can grieve for your loved one instead of trying to navigate the legal system alone.

Damages are more complex in wrongful death cases than in other accident cases, so it’s important to have an attorney with experience with wrongful deaths specifically. You may be due compensation for things like loss of future earnings, loss of job benefits, emotional distress, and loss of consortium. The experienced wrongful death lawyers at GJEL will make sure you get all the compensation you deserve.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are always significant injuries. TBIs can cause a wide variety of life-altering effects. The effects may not show themselves immediately. Furthermore, doctors sometimes attribute TBI systems to other injuries or conditions. As a result, litigating TBI can be complex. The legal process may involve hiring expert witnesses to help prove the existence and cause of a TBI.

Calculating damages after a brain injury is also a complex process because effects don’t always manifest immediately or clearly. That’s why it is so important to have an experienced brain injury lawyer on your side. If you are looking for help recovering damages after a brain injury, contact GJEL Accident Attorneys’ experienced team of brain injury lawyers today.

Damages Might Encompass More Than You Think

Like the injuries and accidents themselves, the types of damage you suffer after an injury can vary considerably. Damages don’t just include immediate medical bills; there are plenty of other damage categories you might be entitled to after an injury. It all depends on the specifics of your case.

California law generally splits damages into two primary categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are those that have a demonstrable, objective monetary value. They are tangible damages that you can prove with a bill or other document.

Economic damages include things like:

  • Rehabilitation costs,
  • Lost wages,
  • Loss of future earning potential,
  • Emergency medical costs,
  • bills,
  • Hospitalization,
  • Prescription costs,
  • Surgery,
  • Amputation,
  • Medical assistive devices,
  • Loss of the use of a limb,
  • Mental health professional costs, and
  • Costs of damage.

Speak with a GJEL personal injury attorney to help figure out what types of economic damages you are eligible to recover. We will work for hand in hand with you to make sure that none of the damage you suffer goes unrecovered. GJEL’s personal injury attorneys are here for you.

Non-economic damages are intangible losses that are more subjective. As a result, they can be harder to identify and prove. Non-economic damages include:

  • Emotional distress,
  • Loss of enjoyment of life,
  • Loss of a loved one,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Grief,
  • Insomnia,
  • Loss of bodily function, and
  • Loss of consortium.

Because non-economic damages are often less identifiable than economic damages, they are often harder to demonstrate and prove. That’s why it is so important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about non-economic damages. A knowledgeable and experienced accident lawyer will help you identify non-economic damages and know how to prove their existence so you can recover damages for them.

GJEL Accident Attorneys in Antioch has helped countless clients recover non-economic damages of all kinds.
