I throughly enjoyed working with Erik and the Child & Jackson firm. I was unfortunate enough to be in an automobile accident, him and his team really took care of me and helped me win my case. I am satisfied with all the help and the outcome of the lawsuit. I would definitely work with Child & Jackson if the time comes again. Thank you for everything.

Child & Jackson came highly recommended and did a great job. Unfortunately, after my case settled for coverage maximum, I was in need of their services again. I didn’t even consider going anywhere else. Very caring people.

I was referred to Child & Jackson from a family/friend who had a good experience with them. To my surprise, I actually got to meet and speak with Mr. Child, who was so down to earth (we all know how attorneys can be intimidating). Mr. Child assured me he and his team will take care of me and they kept their words.

I was in a slip and fall injury while 8 months pregnant. My case was difficult as it was a premises case, however, I was referred to Child & Jackson and they fought for my case to justify my injuries. The paralegal was excellent and very through. She was also available whenever I had any questions and walked me through the entire process!

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?

When someone has acted negligently and you are injured as a result, you have rights under California law to pursue compensation. At Child & Jackson Personal Injury Lawyers, our legal team understands what you’re going through and will help protect your rights and your claim. 

When you work with a member of our legal team, they will handle every aspect of your claim, including:

Gathering and Analyzing Evidence

When you hire an attorney on our legal team, they will act quickly, gathering evidence that supports your claim and proves liability. 

Some types of evidence they may obtain includes:

  • Police report
  • Photos of your injuries, the accident scene, anything that may have contributed to the accident, and any property damage
  • Video footage (if available)
  • Witness statements
  • Expert testimony
  • Phone records
  • Employment records
  • Pay stubs

Working with Experts

Our attorneys often work with experts to determine the cause of an accident, prove liability, and accurately value damages. 

Some of the experts we consult with include:

  • Forensic accountants
  • Economists
  • Life care planners
  • Mechanics
  • Engineers
  • Private investigators
  • Medical professionals

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

Dealing with an insurance company alone can be stressful and frustrating. A claims adjuster often looks for any excuse to minimize payout or deny a claim. They may even pressure or try to intimidate an accident victim to get them to accept a low settlement offer. At Child & Jackson Personal Injury Lawyers, our attorneys have extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies and they will not back down until they make a reasonable settlement offer.

Filing a Lawsuit

If the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer, our trial-tested personal injury attorneys will prepare your case for trial. During this time, we will continue to negotiate with the claims adjuster. Fortunately, the majority of personal injury cases are settled out of court. Insurance companies do not want to waste time and resources on a costly trial.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover After an Accident?

The economic and non-economic damages you’re entitled to will depend on many factors, such as:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • Your prognosis
  • Whether you were forced to switch careers due to your injuries
  • Whether you’re able to return to work at all
  • The value of property damage
  • Your level of fault

And many other variables.

On average, an accident victim can pursue compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical care costs
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress

And more.

What is the Statute of Limitations in Sacramento, CA?

In California, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you wait and file your claim after this important deadline, your case will be dismissed. This means you will be unable to recover any compensation for your accident-related expenses. At Child & Jackson, we will stay on top of your case and file your lawsuit within the statute of limitations.
