Personal Injury process.
Every one of our Personal Injury cases starts with thorough discussion and intake with one of our attorneys and injury team. It’s important that we understand the facts underlying your injury, but also who you are, and how this Personal Injury case may affect you. Next, we send notifications to all necessary companies and agencies that you are represented by our Santa Monica Personal Injury lawyers. If there’s important evidence for your case that needs to be preserved, our attorneys make sure to take care of that as well. We make sure any of your personal property (including your car, motorcycle, bicycle, etc.) is either repaired, or that your compensated fairly for the damage. We ensure that you get the medical treatment you need for you injuries as soon as possible. We stay in touch with these doctors and facilities and eventually request and review your medical records. After your treatment progresses or ends, we’ll send off a “demand letter” to begin our settlement negotiations with the insurance companies. Most cases typically settle not long after negotiations begin, but some inevitably will result in a lawsuit. Keep in mind, you have the final say on whether you want our Santa Monica lawyers to file a lawsuit on your behalf for your injuries. Lawsuits typically result in higher settlements, but often come at a greater expense and time commitment.
It’s very difficult for any Personal Injury attorney to accurately predict how long a case will take to resolve. Cases typically take a minimum of a few months to resolve, as we must wait for your treatment to complete and for all of your medical providers to send your medical records to our Personal Injury lawyers. Occasionally, there is the rare case that takes 2-3 years to resolve. One reason a case could take longer to resolve is if there are disputed issues of fact or liability in your case. Cases involving slip and falls are more often contested, and therefore typically don’t resolve without the filing of a lawsuit. Rear-end car accidents are an example of a typically more straightforward case that can resolve in a matter of months if things move very quickly. Our Santa Monica Personal Injury lawyers always remind our clients that it is nearly impossible to recover great value overnight. Insurance companies are big, bloated companies that have a series of approval tiers. Ultimately, good things come to those who wait, and it is best to approach this process with a great deal of patience.
The industry standard in accident cases is to charge a Personal Injury contingency fee. As a result, Personal Injury clients are not charged until their case is over. This fee structure allows injured people who cannot afford to pay an attorney on an hourly basis to have access to an attorney. Attorneys’ fees in a Personal Injury case are a percentage of the total amount recovered. The recovery may be from a judgment at trial, an award at arbitration, or by an earlier settlement. Hence, a “contingency fee,” means the amount of the fee is contingent on the amount of the recovery. The Personal Injury contingency fee typically slides upwards if the cases progresses to certain critical points that require additional work, for example, filing a lawsuit or going to trial. At Sina Rez Law, our accident attorneys start every case on a 33.33% Personal Injury contingency fee. We front all of the costs associated with the case, and only get reimbursed if we successfully recover you money. Personal Injury contingency fees align the client’s and law firm’s best interests together. If we don’t succeed on behalf of our clients, we don’t get paid. While we certainly are focused on maximizing your financial recovery, we are equally focused on making sure you have access to the best medical care to make a full physical and emotional recovery as well.
