Jacoby and Meyers Dedicated to Protecting Monterey, CA Residents
Jacoby and Meyers has deep ties with the city of Monterey, and it is with great passion that we protect its residents from being taken advantage of by guilty parties and insurance companies when one is injured in an accident.
Monterey is the seat of Monterey County and sits on the scenic edge of Monterey Bay off California’s Central Coast. With strong roots linked to Spain and Mexico, Monterey has a rich history that locals are proud of. Monterey hosted California’s first constitutional convention in 1849, making it a top tourist destination for state history buffs. It also attracts a number of artists for its various picturesque colonies, and draws crowds due in part to Cannery Row, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the California Roots Music and Arts Festival, and the famous Monterey Jazz Festival. The Old Fisherman’s Wharf, Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail, close proximity to Carmel, and its various restaurants and day tours to nearby places makes Monterey a bustling city. Take all of this traffic into account, combined with the nearly 30,000 people who reside in the tight confines of roughly 12 square miles, and accident rates are higher here than in other cities. Jacoby and Meyers offers award-winning personal injury attorneys to the people of monterey, and our genuine care and passion for our clients is what drives us to offer the best personal injury attorney Monterey has to offer.
How Long does it Take a Monterey Personal Injury Attorney to Resolve My Case?
The aftermath of an injury poses confusion, fear, pain, and people tend to experience a wide variety of emotions. Personal injury victims have a number of questions after an accident that usually revolve around wanting to know what their case is worth, how long the case will last, and its strengths and weaknesses.
Before our Monterey personal injury attorney can give you concrete answers pertaining to these questions, we must first perform a thorough investigation, receive any police and medical reports, and communicate with the insurance companies. In terms of the proceeding duration, our ideal outcome is to get you a high settlement without having to move into litigation. Whether or not this happens will depend on the nature of the dispute. Some of the factors that impact the time it takes for a case to close includes the following:
- If multiple parties were involved in the accident
- Whether you hold any causation for the accident (for example, a negligent driver could have blown a red light and hit
you, but you were speeding through a green light, and the insurance company and defendant’s lawyer could argue that had you been driving the legal speed, your injuries would be less severe therefore limiting your claim amount)
- The dollar amount you are seeking for pain, suffering and other damages
- The time it takes to reach maximum medical improvement (MMI)
- Whether or not your case moves into litigation
What Factors does a Monterey Personal Injury Attorney Use to Maximize the Value of a Claim?
No two cases are alike; there are a number of variables that play into the dollar amount a Monterey personal injury attorney from Jacoby and Meyers can assign to a claim’s value. However, our attorneys exceed settlement amounts and case values due to our experience, endless resources, and connections with expert witnesses and even relationships with insurance companies.
