GJEL Accident Attorneys Care

Andy Gillin, the founding partner of GJEL Accident Attorneys, started the firm to help victims seek justice after being wrongly injured. At GJEL, we help people. No one whose injury results from another person’s negligence should have to bear the costs themself. The laws of the state of California recognize and reflect this. The primary goal of our Concord personal injury attorneys is to help you get the justice you deserve.

Our Concord Accident Attorneys are Recognized for Their Service

Thanks to our Concord personal injury attorneys’ commitment to our clients, we have been nationally recognized as one of the top law firms in the country. Most recently, attorney Luke Ellis was named the Best mass tort lawyer for 2018 by US News & World Report.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

Our Unique Approach

The accident attorneys at GJEL’s Concord office like to take a unique approach to personal injury law. The focus of our approach is client satisfaction. Here are just three of the ways we strive to help our clients to the best of our ability.

Ensuring Our Legal Help Is Accessible

There are no two ways about it; medical bills are expensive. Treatment costs for significant injuries can strain the finances of households at any income level. Worrying about legal fees on top of medical costs is a dizzying prospect after a serious injury. We believe that legal aid should always be available to whomever needs it, no matter their income level. After all, what good is legal help if it is unaffordable? That’s why we at GJEL Accident Attorneys offer to work on the basis of contingency fees. This means that we won’t charge you a penny until your case is won in court or settled out of court. If we don’t win the case or get you a settlement, you won’t owe us anything. By working on the basis of contingency fees, we ensure that our accident attorneys’ help is available to anyone who needs it.

Connecting You with the Right Medical Professionals

Because each injury is unique, recovery from every accident is unique. Having the right doctor for your specific injury type is an important aspect of the claims process. We have an established rapport with medical professionals in many different fields in the Concord area. Your injury may require significant continuing care or rehabilitation services. GJEL Accident Attorneys will work with you to connect you with the right doctors for your injury. We will work closely with your doctors to fully estimate the scope and cost of your treatment plan. By taking care of this, you can have the confidence of knowing that your personal injury settlement will cover your full treatment costs.

We Deal with the Insurance Companies for You

Insurance companies’ primary goal is to minimize the amount of money they have to pay you for your injury. To achieve this goal, insurance companies employ many dirty tactics. Pressuring you to sign a settlement agreement, forcing you to go to a specific medical professional, and trying to draw the settlement process out until it’s too late to file a lawsuit are just a few of these underhanded tactics. GJEL’s Concord personal injury lawyers know all the tricks they have in their book. We won’t let you fall victim to such underhanded tactics. Whenever an insurance company contacts you, you can send them to us. We will handle negotiations and communications with them, so you don’t have to.

GJEL Accident Attorneys Strives for Accessibility for All

We at GJEL Accident Attorneys understand the trepidation that some may feel about hiring a lawyer. Lawyers can cost a lot of money out of pocket, right? While that may be true for some attorneys, it is not the case for the lawyers at GJEL Accident Attorneys. At GJEL, we believe that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, should be able to afford legal help. Furthermore, everyone should be able to take their legal claim to its logical conclusion without going broke in the process.

With economic accessibility in mind, we work in such a way that if we don’t get you a settlement or win your case in court, you won’t owe us a dime. The way we do this is by using a payment structure called a contingency fee. With a contingency fee payment arrangement, your fee is contingent on us getting you a settlement. Once we settle your case or win a judgment in court, your payment to us consists of a pre-negotiated percentage of that amount. Contact GJEL’s injury attorneys in Concord for a free case review.

GJEL Has the Resources Necessary to See Your Case Through

One of the most important things to consider when hiring a personal injury attorney is whether they have the resources necessary to help you win your case. If an attorney doesn’t have the resources to adequately represent you in whatever way necessary, you may miss out on proving a crucial aspect of your case. 

For example, proving damages can pose a problem in some cases. Sometimes opposing attorneys and insurance companies will claim that a particular type of damages are not relevant to your case. This is especially true of noneconomic damages. To prove the relevance and pertinence of those damages in such cases, your injury attorney may need to hire an expert witness to testify in court. Doing so takes resources, so it is important that your injury attorney has those resources.

In other cases, the opposing party may argue your own negligence or percentage of fault to avoid liability. In a car accident where fault is challenged by one party, your attorney may need to hire a traffic expert to assess the facts of the accident and prove your lack of fault. Other times, your attorney may need to bring a specialized car accident investigator to investigate the damage on your vehicle in order to show that you were not at fault. Some attorneys may balk at such a request and claim it is not worth the resources, but we disagree.

GJEL’s Concord accident attorneys have the resources necessary to fight for your rights and compensation. We are committed to fighting for you with every possible tool we have and committing the resources necessary to do so.

Making Sure You Have the Resources You Need to Fully Recover From Your Injuries

We recognize that damages often go far beyond immediate medical treatment costs. Here are just a few of the other damages associated with personal injuries that we will help you account for:

  • Long-term medical care or rehabilitation;
  • In-home care while recovering from significant injuries;
  • In-home care after a life-altering injury;
  • Treatment for psychological trauma;
  • Lost earning potential due to a life-altering injury;
  • Lost future earnings after the wrongful death of a loved one; and
  • Damage that occurs as a result of the accident.

This list includes both economic and non-economic damages. Economic and noneconomic loss are the two distinct types of loss that the state of California categorizes damages into. Economic loss is a tangible loss with a set monetary value. Medical bills and lost wages are two of the most common types of economic loss. Aside from the economic loss, there is noneconomic loss. Noneconomic loss is just as real as economic loss but is often harder to quantify and identify. As a result, the non-economic loss is often a major point of contention in personal injury cases. If the opposing party questions your noneconomic losses, we will be ready to counter them and prove your losses.  

No matter what sort of damages you suffer as a result of your personal injury, you deserve compensation for all of them. GJEL will help you account for all damages and do everything we can to ensure you recover compensation.

Any Sort of Injury Can Happen in Concord

Due to our location in a densely populated area of California, just about any injury can occur in Concord. The variety of fun things to do in the Concord area add to the variety of injuries that occur here.

For example, you may suffer an injury due to someone else’s negligence at any one of the area’s beaches. The sorts of injuries that might happen at a Concord beach include things like:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI),
  • Broken ankles,
  • Near-drowning,
  • Concussions,
  • Sprained wrists, and even
  • Whiplash.

At the beach, serious accidents can happen in the water that require hospitalization. There is even the risk of serious injury when you are walking to the beach from the parking lot. Whether you are walking down to the beach and break your ankle from slipping on wet stairs or get a broken nose and concussion from someone’s errant football, the costs of an injury can add up quickly.  

If you suffer a serious injury while you are out enjoying the natural beauty the California coastline has to offer, it can seriously disrupt your life. If someone else’s negligent actions cause your injury, you deserve compensation. To get proper compensation, you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side. GJEL Accident Attorneys in Concord will advocate for you throughout the entirety of the legal process.

Types of Cases We Handle

Truck Accidents

Trucking is a major industry in the Concord area. With trucks being so common in our area, trucking accidents are an unfortunately common reality. Truck drivers don’t always see other cars on the road, and the results can be catastrophic. Because of trucks’ large size, truck accidents often cause significant injuries. When a commercial truck hits you, the truck or tractor-trailer owner may be responsible for damages. Our truck accident lawyers will help you hold the responsible party accountable for the damages they cause you.

Car Accidents

Car accidents happen every day in the Concord area. As a result, our car accident lawyers have a great deal of experience in accidents of all kinds. In California, you are eligible for recovery of some damages even if you are 99% at fault for an accident. Our team of car accident lawyers will fight for you to get the full amount of compensation you deserve after a car accident.

Motorcycle Accidents

With the beautiful weather and landscape of Concord, it is no wonder that so many people choose to ride motorcycles here. Riding a motorcycle is an excellent way to experience the natural beauty of our surroundings. However, riding a motorcycle can be dangerous. Some drivers fail to share the road properly, and accidents happen. The risk of serious injury after a motorcycle accident is significantly higher than in a typical car accident. GJEL’s Concord motorcycle accident lawyers can help you fully recover from your injuries and any financial costs so you can get back on the road as soon as possible.

Wrongful Death

GJEL’s wrongful death lawyers understand how significant a wrongful death is. The damages that the loss of a loved one causes a family are far-reaching and life-altering. If you lose a loved one, you and your family deserve to recover proper compensation for all damages by the responsible party. Worrying about your family’s future financial security is the last thing you want to deal with after losing a loved one. Our wrongful death attorneys can help you account for the full extent of damages so you can have confidence in your family’s financial security.

Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can have a wide variety of long-term effects that lead to lasting complex damages. The process of litigating brain injuries is often equally complex. Our brain injury lawyers understand the unique nature of such injuries. As a result, we are prepared to fight for you every step of the way, no matter how complex the case becomes. Your recovery is the most important element, and it is our primary focus.
