Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

You Need to Give Yourself an Advantage

You Deserve to Benefit From Experts

There’s a Good Chance You’re Going to Be Blamed

You Need to Invest in Your Recovery

It’s simple: insurance companies don’t want you to hire an attorney after an accident. Why? It’s much easier for them to deny your claim or convince you to accept a lowball offer if you’re handling a claim by yourself. These companies have playbooks full of strategies designed to prey on your stress, fear, and anguish.

Once you hire an attorney you level the playing field. When you hire Mission Personal Injury Lawyers, you don’t just put yourself on level ground – you tip the odds of a favorable outcome.

Insurance companies rely on experts all the time. These experts are asked to accomplish one simple goal: help to company deny a claim or drive down value. If you don’t have experts on your side, then you’re at a disadvantage from the start.

When you hire a law firm, you should benefit from a network of industry experts – including:

  • Forensic specialists,
  • Accident scene recreationists,
  • Appraisers,
  • Medical professionals,
  • And more.

They can provide insight, analysis, and guidance at every stage of the claims process – allowing you to build a stronger, more persuasive case on your behalf.

Blaming the accident victim for getting hurt is perhaps the most utilized strategy by defendants. In California, sharing blame won’t bar your compensation, but it will affect how much money you can get for your injuries.

The state’s pure comparative fault rules dictate that your award will be reduced in direct proportion to your degree of fault. If you’re 25% to blame, your damages will be reduced by 25%.

You can protect yourself from these types of allegations – whether they’re true or not – by hiring an attorney. Your lawyer will know how to anticipate and counter claims that you’re to blame, which can involve:

  • Gathering evidence to clearly show others are at fault,
  • Finding ways to discredit witness statements, or
  • Other strategies to minimize how much fault is ultimately assigned to you.

Under the state’s contributory fault system, the less blame you share the more money you can get.

The best way to make sure that you get back on your feet is by dedicating as time and energy as you can to your recovery. Money won’t guarantee that you make a full recovery.

Hiring a San Diego personal injury lawyer gives you the opportunity to concentrate on yourself and increases the odds of winning your personal injury case. In fact, research suggests that hiring a lawyer significantly increases the amount of money you’ll ultimately recover for your injuries.

Do I Have a San Diego Personal Injury Case?

In California, you might have a personal injury case if:

  • You got hurt because someone else was negligent
  • A dangerous or defective product contributed to your injury
  • You were injured while lawfully on someone else’s property
  • A medical professional made a mistake
  • You were attacked by an animal
  • You got hurt on the job, or
  • Someone hurt you intentionally.

There are a lot of different factors that can come into play. Did you contribute to your injury? If so, how much? Did another person have some legal obligation to keep you safe or act in a certain way?

Personal injury cases are complex. But, if you suspect that your injuries happened due to someone else’s negligence, it’s important to speak with our San Diego personal injury attorneys immediately. Contact us for a free case evaluation to learn more about your rights today.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists usually have nothing more than a helmet to keep them safe on the roads. And while a helmet might protect against serious brain damage, riders are still susceptible to other catastrophic injuries like broken bones, amputation, and paralysis. These injuries can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of a lifetime.

If a negligent driver is responsible for a bicycle accident, our lawyers will fight to hold them financially accountable for your suffering.

Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury can cause chronic pain, change how your body functions, and impair your ability to live your life. If you suffer a brain injury because someone else is negligent, you shouldn’t have to suffer the costs and consequences on your own. Our lawyers will work to recover maximum compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and suffering.

View practice area

Car Accidents

After a car accident, insurance companies will go to great lengths to deny your claim or pressure you to accept a lowball settlement. Our attorneys know these strategies well. Better yet, we know how to counter their moves at every turn. We’ll force at-fault parties to accept responsibility for your injuries and work hard to get you all of the money you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists often ride right alongside much larger, heavier vehicles. When crashes occur at high speeds, the consequences can have life-altering – or even fatal – consequences for the rider. Even worse, other parties like to blame motorcyclists for the collisions in which they’re involved. Our personal injury attorneys in San Diego will defend you at every turn so that you can walk away with the compensation you need.

Pedestrian Accidents

San Diego has made great strides in providing safe pedestrian infrastructure. However, drivers still create dangerous situations for people on foot. Those responsible must be held accountable. When you choose our law firm, you’ll get the time you need to recover. We’ll work around the clock to recover the compensation you are entitled to.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents shouldn’t happen. However, when businesses and property owners cut corners, slips, trips, and falls occur. Our lawyers know the evidence that will be required to build a successful injury claim on your behalf – and we’ll be ready to get a jump start on an investigation the moment you ask for our help.

View practice area

Truck Accidents

Collisions involving large trucks shouldn’t happen. But when truck drivers are overtired, undertrained, or using unmaintained equipment, crashes are almost inevitable. You can count on our lawyers to seek monetary damages from anyone who contributed to your truck accident – including drivers, trucking companies, manufacturers, and other liable parties.

Wrongful Death

If someone else’s negligence caused a fatal accident, you might be entitled to compensation for the losses you suffered. You deserve time to grieve – let our experienced attorneys handle your wrongful death case. We’ll work hard to hold those responsible for your tragic loss fully accountable under the law.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in California?

Most personal injury lawsuits in California must be filed within two years of the date of an accident. The statute of limitations can vary in certain situations – like when a government agency is involved or if a victim is a minor.

However, it’s important to speak with an attorney promptly after getting hurt – if you don’t file your claim on time you’ll forfeit the right to get the money you are entitled to.

How Do I Determine Negligence in a San Diego Personal Injury Case?

Most personal injury cases are based on negligence. This means that one person failed to exercise a reasonable level of care under the circumstances and, in turn, caused another person to get hurt. In order to establish negligence – and recover compensation for your injuries – you’ll have to establish four things:

  1. The defendant owed you a duty of care
  2. The defendant breached that duty
  3. You suffered damages
  4. The defendant’s actions caused your injuries.

If you got hurt because someone else was negligent, you might have the grounds to file a personal injury case.

California Personal Injury Laws

California has pure comparative negligence rules in place. In simple terms, this means that your financial award can be reduced if you share responsibility for your accident. One strategy employed by insurance companies is to “blame the victim.” The more blame that’s assigned to you, the less money the insurance provider will have to pay. That’s more money in the company’s pocket and less in yours.

David Muñoz is known for having zero tolerance for these underhanded efforts. We will hold insurance companies accountable and force them to deal with you in good faith.

If you did play a role, we will work diligently to minimize the proportion of blame that’s ultimately assigned to you.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

It costs nothing upfront. Instead, personal injury attorneys typically charge anywhere between 33 and 40% of the money they recover for a client. But, this fee is contingent on whether or not the case is a success. If the lawyer doesn’t win, then they don’t get paid.

That means there’s no risk in hiring a lawyer to represent you. You get an advocate in your corner without having to worry about paying for them out of your pocket – when you’re already under enough financial pressure as it is.
