Understand Personal Injury Law

Our personal injury attorneys believe in keeping clients informed. Here are some of the basic principles of personal injury law in California:

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

If you've suffered an injury from a car accident or other incident caused by another person's negligence or recklessness, you can make a personal injury claim. This claim allows the injured party to go to civil court in order to achieve a legal solution for all damages and losses associated with the injury. 

California Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit following your personal injury. California's statute of limitations in personal injury cases is two years. If the injury is not discovered right away, you have one year from the date of diagnosis to file your lawsuit.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Attorneys Can Handle

Our personal injury attorneys take on cases involving auto accidents, slip-and-fall injuries, defective products, and more.

Complimentary Case Review

Get the process started with a free case review from one of our esteemed lawyers. At this time, your attorney will ask you various questions to help them understand your situation.

The attorney will ask about the accident itself, any medical bills you've had, and how your injuries have prevented you from working. Bring all related documentation to this consultation.

Gathering Evidence

Once you've explained your accident to your lawyer, they will begin gathering evidence to build your case. They might collect statements from witnesses at the scene, check security footage, and even speak with an expert witness to explain how your injuries happened and what negligence caused them.

Filing a Compensation Claim

Once your attorney has gathered the evidence needed to support your case, they will create a claims package to deliver to the insurance companies. In some accidents, such as car accidents involving just you and another driver, you may only file a single claim. In more complex accidents, your lawyer may file multiple claims to hold all liable parties responsible. Your claims package will include all the evidence your lawyer has gathered, and it will specify the amount of compensation you are seeking.


After your lawyer has issued your compensation claim, the responsible party's insurance company will give you a settlement offer. This step is when your lawyer's negotiating skills come into play. Our San Diego personal injury lawyers will fight for maximum compensation. We won't settle for lowball offers from the insurance company.

Bringing Your Case to Court

Ideally, your lawyer will be able to reach a fair settlement with your insurance company without having to go to court. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, your lawyer will not hesitate to proceed to a personal injury trial and argue your case before a judge and jury. 

We Build Compelling Cases Using the Resources at Our Disposal

Our personal injury attorneys work alongside experts in various fields to build compelling cases. We can call upon accident reconstruction specialists, medical professionals, and others to explore the details of your case and prove that you're owed compensation for your injuries, property damage, medical bills, rehabilitation, modifications to your home, and more. The average person can't do this on their own, so put our San Diego law firm on the case to give yourself the best chances of obtaining maximum compensation.

Personal Injury FAQ

Is it worth it to hire a personal injury lawyer?

Yes. A personal injury attorney can make all the difference when pursuing compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies are likely to offer you a low settlement, but our lawyers can call upon our network of professionals to determine the extent of your injuries and prove that you're owed more. Hiring an attorney also affords peace of mind—you can rest assured that our team will handle the legalese and make sure all paperwork is filed correctly and on time.

How should I handle the insurance companies?

Don't. Let us handle them for you. Insurance companies will likely contact you so they can twist your words and use them against you. Even something as simple as an apology can hurt your case. Insurance adjusters will do anything they can to minimize the amount they pay you. If you find yourself on a call with one, politely end the call and contact our San Diego attorneys.

How can I help build my case?

While our team will collect evidence like witness testimonies and security footage on your behalf, you can help us build a compelling case by attending doctor appointments, even if you think your injuries aren't that serious. Paperwork from doctors can prove the extent of your injuries, result in higher compensation, and show the insurance companies that your injuries can be linked to the incident. Additionally, you should obtain a copy of the police report and take photos of your injuries and any vehicles involved.

How can I maximize my compensation?

Our San Diego personal injury attorneys will go after every penny you deserve. To help us in this endeavor, collect proof of your lost wages, keep track of your medical bills, and stay off social media for the time being. If your social media profiles show that you're doing fine after an accident, your case can become compromised. If you go to trial, be sure to put your best face forward so the judge and jury view you as a reputable person.
