Why Should I Hire Mission Personal Injury Lawyers To Handle My San Diego Injury Case?

You Need to Give Yourself an Advantage

Insurance providers don’t want you to consult a personal injury attorney after an accident in San Diego. Why? It’s much easier for them to deny your claim or convince you to accept a lowball offer if you are handling a claim by yourself. They have playbooks full of strategies designed to prey on your stress, fear, and anguish.

When you hire our law firm, you will level the playing field and tip the odds of a favorable outcome.

You Deserve to Benefit From Experts

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

When you hire a law firm in San Diego, 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.

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

Blaming the victim in a San Diego personal injury claim is perhaps the most utilized strategy by defendants. In California, sharing guilt won’t bar your compensation, but it will affect how much money you can get for your serious 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 are 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 experienced personal injury lawyer in San Diego. Your attorney will know how to anticipate and counter claims, which can involve:

  • Gathering evidence,
  • Finding ways to discredit witness statements, or
  • Other strategies to minimize how much blame
  • is ultimately assigned to you.

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

You Need to Invest in Your Recovery

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

Why Should I Hire a San Diego Personal Injury Attorney After an Accident?

Insurance companies settle most personal injury claims. They would prefer to avoid the costs and unpredictability of trial. However, that doesn’t mean they will settle them for a fair amount. In fact, insurance adjusters will use every trick in the book to undervalue or deny your claim.

They may:

The best way to combat these tactics is to hire a personal injury lawyer. Your San Diego attorney will handle all communications and negotiations with the insurers. They will help you avoid saying things that could hurt your claim or claim negotiations.

An attorney can also:

  • Protect you from unfounded accusations that you share the blame for your injury,
  • Gather evidence that another party is responsible for your injury, and
  • Compile proof that your injury wasn’t preexisting.

Consult with an experienced lawyer to discuss how they can help you negotiate a fair settlement after your accident.

Do I Have a San Diego Personal Injury Case?

In San Diego, 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 injured on the job, or
  • Someone intentionally harmed you.

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 because of someone else’s negligence, it’s important to speak with our injury attorneys in San Diego immediately. Reach out to us for a free case evaluation to learn more about your rights.

Personal Injury FAQ

What Are California’s Statute of Limitations?

The statute of limitations limit the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. In California, injury victims must file their lawsuit within two years of the date of an accident. This 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 – if you don’t submit your claim on time you’ll forfeit the right to get the money you are entitled to.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a San Diego 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 secure compensation, then they don’t get paid.

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 are already under enough financial pressure as it is.

California Personal Injury Laws

California has pure comparative negligence rules in place. In simple terms, 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 guilt 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 insurers 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 to Calculate Future Damages in a San Diego Personal Injury Case

Some injuries will come with future damages, especially long-term or permanent injuries. The most common are future medical expenses related to your injury and future lost wages/diminished earning capacity.

Typically, your lawyer will need to consult financial experts to calculate your future damages. These professionals will have to evaluate many variables to determine how much money you stand to expend in the future due to your injuries. The best way to determine whether you might qualify for these damages is to consult an experienced personal injury attorney.

What Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

The value of your claim will depend on your damages. The facts of your case and the identity of the at-fault party will also influence the value.

You can expect the following factors to have the greatest impact on your claim’s value:

  • The cost of your medical bills and whether you will have future medical costs
  • The extent of your lost wages and whether your ability to work is affected
  • The amount of pain and suffering you’ve endured since the accident
  • The insurance coverages available to pay for your damages
  • Whether you share responsibility for your injuries or losses
  • The strength of your evidence proving negligence

The easiest way to get an accurate estimate of your claim’s value is to consult an experienced law firm in San Diego. We offer free consultations to help you get a sense of your rights and the value of your claim.
