SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS

As personal injury lawyers we provide legal representation to those who have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity.

The expression "trial lawyers" can refer to personal injury lawyers, even though most cases handled by personal injury lawyers settle rather than going to trial and other types of lawyers; thus leaving the lawyers being inexperienced trial lawyers. As former defense attorney and prosecutors, who appear in trial more frequently than almost any other type of lawyer, are the lawyers who possess the greatest amount of leverage in the field of personal injury. In our humble opinion, only trial lawyers should be considered in your decision as to which personal injury you hire to get remuneration for the harm you suffered as a result of the negligence of the defendant. Do not trust you case to just any lawyer – only consider trial lawyers if you expect to increase your chances of the highest compensation for the losses you incurred as a result of the defendant’s negligence.

The personal injury, intellectual property rights, commercial and business litigation attorneys are some of the best trial lawyers in Southern California – you cannot find a better “team” of attorneys ready to get you the money you deserve to compensation the unimaginable loss you suffered as a result of the defendant’s negligence.

Contact your Southern California Personal Injury Attorneys for a consultation regarding your personal injury case or any kind of civil matter. You owe it to yourself – do not trust your case to any lawyer other than your Southern California Personal Injury Attorneys.


CONTINGENCY FEES AVAILABLE – IF YOU DO NOT WIN, WE DO NOT GET PAID - YOU HAVE LITTLE TO LOSE - SCHEDULE A FREE CONSULTATION TO DISCUSS YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE

Typically lawyers’ fees are based on a number of factors, which may include the time and energy spent on a case, the outcome of a case, the difficulty of a claim, the experience and prominence of the lawyer, and the costs associated with the case. There are several standard payment options a personal injury lawyer may offer his/her clients. These options include contingency fees, hourly rates, flat fees, and retainers.

A contingency fee is an arrangement in which the lawyer receives a set percentage of the amount of recovery awarded to the plaintiff. When an attorney takes a case on a contingency fee, the client has no obligation to pay his/her lawyer a fee unless the case is successfully resolved. We work on a contingency fee basis in certain cases, typically personal injury. The average contingency fee is about thirty percent. An hourly rate is not uncommon either and if the matter proceeds to trial, the lawyers’ fees are increased by another 10%. This is common and as a result of the countless hours that are invested in preparing for a case that could last weeks or months and the attorneys could gain nothing from the case after spending all that time preparing for and conducting the trial – if the lawyer loses, he or she gains nothing from the case – this is why the fee is increased by 10% and it is not unreasonable considering the amount of risk involved to both sides. The client needs a good lawyer and the lawyer needs to win to obtain a settlement or a verdict in the lawyer’s favor.

Sometimes personal injury cases can be taken on a "contingency fee" basis, which again means that we will pay most if not all of the costs of the case up front, and will not charge attorney's fees unless you win the case. If you win, the award will be reduced by a predetermined percentage and reimbursement of the costs. Generally, in the event you lose, you will only have to pay the court costs, but not the fees.

Don't let the potential costs and complexity scare you away from a personal injury case. If you were injured by someone's negligence talk to an personal injury attorney to see if you have a good case. Not only can you get money or "damages" for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, but you can also make sure that the same mistake does not happen to someone else, particularly in cases dealing with medical malpractice.
