A common question asked by many new clients is:
Do I Have a Case? Over the past 24 years, I have successfully handled thousands of accident
cases and recovered millions for my client. I can tell you whether you
have a legitimate case.
The first part of my analysis is liability, or:
Who Caused the Accident? To determine liability, the more information you can provide, the better
my analysis will be. Photos of the damage to both cars and the scene are
essential. If you think the other party will blame you for the accident,
try to get photos of the scene before moving the vehicles. These photos
can be strong evidence to support your case. Talking to people at the
scene may locate witnesses.
The second part of my analysis is:
What are Your Damages? While most injuries resulting from
car accidents are not catastrophic or life threatening, that doesn't mean you won't
have medical bills, time off work, and other out of pocket expenses. Also,
some injuries are not obvious because they don't show up on X-rays,
but they can cause you to miss work and they may require significant treatment.
Be wary of claim adjusters who try to pressure you into agreeing to settle
quickly and be cautious about giving the claim adjuster a recorded statement
about the accident or your injuries. Such statements may typcially use
deceptive or leading questions that will be used against you.
DO I HAVE A CASE?
The easiest way to figure out whether you have a legitimate case is to
speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer. Even those who do not
see themselves as the "suing type," often have questions about
their rights, the claims process, and DMV accident reporting requirements
that should be answered by a legal professional.
PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS!
If you've been injured through no fault of your own, remember: the
lawyer you choose could be the difference between being fully compensated
for your injury and not. For over 24 years, I have been helping accident
victims throughout San Diego and Southern California get the compensation
they deserve. I can help you, too.
