What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit? What Makes a Good Case?

When pursuing a personal injury claim, you are not dealing with the responsible party, but rather their liability insurance company.

Personal Injury Cases – Proving Negligence

The heart of a personal injury case is la negligencia. Can you prove that the other party’s negligence caused your injury? If you can prove with evidence that this is true, then you have a good case.

Compensation & Settlements

When an injured person seeks compensation for their pain and suffering, a variety of factors are taken into consideration by insurance companies. For a majority of cases, when it comes time to settle this is done outside of a courtroom. Litigation is often a final step in a personal injury case, but sometimes necessary. If it comes to litigation, one of our trial lawyers will be well-prepared to fight for you.

La mayoría de acuerdos

For most cases, a settlement is reached outside of a courtroom by the victim, their legal representation (if they choose to have any), the insurer and their legal representation. A settlement usually involves a negotiation concerning damages to be paid, followed by a written agreement that no further action will be taken by either side, rather the matter will be resolved by payment for the damages.

Nuestro proceso

Nuestra primera prioridad es asegurarnos de que usted está en el mejor camino hacia la recuperación para que pueda seguir con su vida después de que su caso se haya resuelto. Nos concentraremos en su caso, mientras usted se concentra en recuperarse de sus lesiones.

En primer lugar, el equipo jurídico que se le asigne reunirá toda la información y los registros relacionados con su demanda. Utilizarán su historial médico, las facturas y la información de la póliza de seguro para ayudar a a determinar los daños y la compensación a buscar para su caso. 

Después de haber reunido toda la documentación, su abogado y sus asistentes legales investigarán su accidente y reunirán cualquier detalle relevante que pueda ayudar a su caso. La información crítica podría incluir vídeos de cámaras de seguridad, vídeos de cámaras de tráfico, grabaciones de cámaras de velocidad y registros policiales.

Before they move to litigation, your lawyer will negotiate with the insurance company and the defense to get you the compensation you deserve. In most cases, a settlement can be reached without having to step into a courtroom. If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, your team is prepared to go to trial and present your case

How Much Does An Injury Lawyer Cost?

En California, el tipo de tarifa más común de un abogado de lesiones personales es una tarifa de contingencia. Esto especifica que los honorarios del abogado son un porcentaje del dinero que el cliente acepta pagar cuando su caso se resuelve, sin pagar dinero por adelantado. La palabra "contingencia" significa que si, por cualquier motivo, no se recupera el dinero, el abogado no recibirá nada por el tiempo dedicado a representarlo. 

Fee Structure & The Law

Section 6147 of the Business and Professions Code requires lawyer fee agreements to be in writing and that the fee is negotiable. The percentage an lawyer charges can vary depending on the law firm, types of injury, and the nature of the case. 

Why Have A Contingency Fee?

Contingency Fees Prioritize Injury Claims of Merit

Few personal injury lawyers are willing to risk their valuable time and their own money on cases that have little chance of success. Most injured people prefer to know in the beginning if their case has merit. If a lawyer won’t accept a case on a contingent fee basis, that’s a good indication that the case doesn’t have merit. It’s always a good idea, of course, to talk to other injury lawyers about your case.


It Allows Victims To Get Valuable Legal Help When They May Not Be Able To Afford It

An accident can eliminate a victim’s earning power and cause unforeseen expenses. Medical bills often exceed the victim’s own insurance benefits, and if they don’t have insurance, these bills can be overwhelming. Most injured people do not have money to pay an lawyer’s retainer and hourly fees in addition to other costs caused by the accident. However, insurance companies have vast resources and pay their lawyers generous hourly fees.


It Eliminates Financial Risk If You Lose Your Injury Case

Because the fee is contingent, the lawyer does not earn a fee until after money is collected from a settlement or verdict. If no money is collected, the lawyer doesn’t get paid and the client is not responsible for any fee to the lawyer. Make sure that this is clearly spelled out in a signed agreement with the lawyer.


It Encourages Results

The contingent fee provides the lawyer with the purest form of incentive to get results – the more money they obtain for you, the more they earn. It also provides an incentive to resolve the case as soon as possible. The incentive for insurance lawyers, who work on an hourly basis, is to maximize the number of hours they spend on a case.


Focus On Recovery

In terms of personal injury lawyer fees, a contingency fee is ideal for most clients. It promotes a healthy lawyer-client relationship due to its mutually beneficial nature. The client is assured their personal injury lawyer will be strongly motivated to get results. While their lawyer is fighting for them, they can focus on their recovery.



Our Lawyers Want To Help

The insurance industry is continually fighting to reduce, control or eliminate the contingency fee. They know that it is the only fee arrangement that allows an accident victim to obtain experienced lawyers to fight for their rights. Without a contingency fee, most people could not bear the financial burden and risk of obtaining legal help, and without formal legal advice, getting the best settlement is very challenging.
