in Car
Accidents Cases in Seaside

To begin these cases, liability will be the forefront of the case. Insurance companies and any other interested parties, including us at the Johnston Law Firm, will investigate all aspects of the accident.

Common Misconceptions 
about Starting a Case

I am not that type of person that sues somebody. Obtaining a lawyer in these circumstances are not always about suing someone, but truly about ensuring that you get a fair say in what happens with your health and financial security. Our main concern is doing just this, making sure you get everything you are owed. As well as making sure you are treated fairly.

I cannot afford an attorney. Hiring the Johnston Law Firm is simple. We will listen to what happened to you and give you a free case consultation. We will give you our quick, honest, and helpful advice in your next steps. We do not get paid until we win a settlement for you. 

I can handle my car accident on my own. You certainly can handle this on your own. If you have little to no injuries, and are not worried about obtaining a large settlement, you can do it on your own. But if you have injuries that will negatively affect your life and well-being, we highly recommend contacting us to at the very least, get helpful advice. We can handle all communications with the insurance companies and medical providers so you can handle your recovery. We make the process simple for you, we fight for your interests. The insurance companies will not care for you, they have one goal. This goal is to hand out the least amount of money as fast as possible. We will treat you like part of our family.

Common Pains
and Injuries after a Car Accidents

No matter how severe a car accident is, pains and injuries can come in various forms. Car accidents result in some common pains:

  • Upper neck soreness and stiffness
  • Lower back soreness and stiffness
  • Whiplash
  • Lacerations or cuts
  • Lower body trauma
  • Head trauma

No matter how you feel after the accident, it is important to get checked out by a medical professional if able. Many pains and injuries can go under the radar after an accident, especially immediately afterward, as the body can numb the pain with adrenaline.

Filing your Car
 Case on time

Our lives are for the most part, dictated by deadlines and timing. After a car accident, it is important to report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible and to fill out an accident report through the DMV within 72 hours. The other major deadline that needs to be on your mind is two years.

An injury victim has two years from the date of the accident and injuries (same date) to file a claim. If this sounds like a long time, it can be deceiving. Time flies in these stressful situations and circumstances, therefore it is important to call an experienced and dedicated attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can help you make the best decisions for you and your loved ones.
