How much does hiring an attorney cost?
At our law firm, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we only get paid if we win your case. This allows us to represent clients who may not have the financial means to pay upfront legal fees. When we win your case, our fee is a percentage of the compensation you receive. This percentage may vary depending on the complexity of your case, but we will discuss all fees with you upfront. Rest assured that our goal is to help you receive the maximum compensation possible, while ensuring that our fees are fair and transparent. Contact us today for a free consultation.
How much is my case worth?

What does the process look like?
At our law firm, we understand that the legal process can be daunting, especially when it comes to personal injury cases. That’s why we are here to guide you every step of the way. After you have completed your medical treatment, we will gather all the necessary documents to begin the settlement process with the opposing insurance company. If they offer an adequate amount of compensation, we can settle the case without the need for a lawsuit. However, if the offer is not sufficient, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf. During the litigation process, we may participate in mediation with the opposing attorney to try and reach a settlement. If we are unable to reach an agreement, we will proceed to a jury trial. It’s important to note that approximately 90% of personal injury cases settle before a trial is necessary. Rest assured that our team will work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome for you.
How do I pay medical bills?
Our law office will contact your various medical providers to help address your medical bills. Oftentimes we will request the doctor pause collecting payment while we are litigating your case. In the case that the doctor does not respect the request, we will work with you on determining how to fund your medical bills.
What if I don't know who injured me?
If you do not know who injured you, our team will help investigate your claim to identify who should be held responsible for your injury and the financial burden. If it was a hit and run, we will also examine your insurance policy as your own insurance may cover the claim, particularly the case if you have underinsured motorist coverage or uninsured motorist coverage. Our investigation will also look at your family members’ insurance policies to see whether they have any coverage that can be applied to your claim.
Will my monthly insurance rate increase if I make a claim?
The California Department of Insurance, the entity responsible for regulating insurance companies, forbids insurance companies to increase your premium if your injury was caused by someone else.
What if I was injured on the job?
If you were injured on the job you are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits which includes a portion of your wage loss and medical treatments. If someone else injured you while you were working, you may also have a personal injury claim against the person who injured you. This personal injury claim would entitle you to damages beyond workers compensation including pain and suffering.
