How do I choose the right lawyer?

Look at their past results for an indicator of what they have been able to recover for past clients. While every case is different, if they have been able to recover large settlements and verdicts that is usually a sign that they have been successful in the past.

Are there California attorneys that will make home and hospital visits?

Yes, we know many attorneys who will come to you no matter where you are in the state of California. There is no fee for the lawyer to visit you, if they feel you have a good case then many attorneys will come to you no matter where you are in the state.

Should I hire an attorney before talking to the insurance company?

Maybe. You should at least talk to an attorney first and get their opinion. If you don’t have a good case or you are better off handling on your own, honest attorneys (yes, they do actually exist) will tell you so. It is dangerous talking to the insurance company because they are trained to ask you questions that can reduce the value of your claim. Some of the best personal injury attorneys in California that we know of have former insurance company adjustors working for them so they know exactly what to expect and how to negotiate with them in order to get the most money for your accident.

How much is my case worth?

This is a question everyone wants to know but the truth is every case is different. The more serious the injuries and costs associated with the accident, the more a case is worth. Factors like medical bills and healthcare costs, how much time was missed from work, how much income is the injured party losing by not being able to work, is it a permanent injury, etc. To get an idea, you need to have a conversation with a lawyer about your specific situation.

Below are some of the most common questions asked by people looking to hire a California personal injury lawyer.


How much do California personal injury lawyers charge?

Personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay them any fees for their services unless they are able to successfully recover money on your behalf. These fees typically range between 33%-40%. If a case goes to trial, the percentages are typically on the higher range. Cases that are able to be settled without going to trial are most commonly billed at 33%.

Why hire an attorney at all to settle my claim?

Many people think they will handle trying to get a settlement from the insurance company without the help of an accident attorney. If you were in an accident and no injuries were sustained, yes, handle this without the help of an attorney. However, if you suffered an injury, it’s smart to get help from a highly experienced personal injury lawyer who can help negotiate maximum settlement for you. The insurance companies would love to deal with you instead of an attorney because they know consumers don’t know how to “work up the value” of a case. A really good lawyer knows how to maximize the settlement money you receive from your insurance company and will not let you get taken advantage of. Unfortunately, this happens all the time in California.

How long will it take till I get paid?

Another common question people ask when they have a personal injury claim is “How long will it take for me to get paid?”. The answer is different for every person, as every case is unique. If you had an accident, were injured, are now completely healed and you have no more medical bills or other related costs, your case should resolve faster than a situation where you don’t know how much longer you will have to receive medical treatment or physical therapy, etc. Of course, there is also the side of the insurance company and whether or not they are offering a fair settlement, or trying to get you to accept a settlement offer that is less than what your case is actually worth. Situations like this can drag a car accident claim on for a lot longer than it should. However, if the insurance company knows the reputation of the attorney that is representing you, that also will play a part. Not only in how fast the case resolves, but how much you actually get.
