How Does a Contingent Fee Agreement Work?

How Does a Contingent Fee Agreement Work?

In simple and easy to understand words, This means that if there is no recovery for you, there is no fee for me .  Years of litigating cases has allowed me the opportunity to develop an experienced team of expert witnesses, investigators and paralegals that I can use to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients. By preparing the case for trial from the very outset, we send a message to the defense that we are willing to go the distance to make sure we achieve a recovery that fairly and adequately compensates our clients for their injuries. 

After finishing in the top ten percent of my first year class and receiving an invitation to joint the Law Review at CalWestern, I graduated Cum Laude with honors and went on to found my own personal injury firm. I have since recovered millions for my clients by developing an aggressive approach towards resolution. My commitment to my clients is to treat their interests as if they were my own.

My first concern when a client contacts me is to determine whether he or she is getting the appropriate medical care and treatment needed to properly address the injuries he or she sustained. I have excellent working relationships with physicians all over the greater San Diego area. I can refer clients to medical doctors, orthopedists, neurosurgeons and physical therapists that can properly assess the extent of their injuries and determine what is needed to help the client recovery from his or her injuries as quickly as possible.

What kinds of damages can I recover?

What kinds of damages can I recover?

In a personal injury action, damages are divided into two categories: special damages and general damages. Special damages are those that have a definitive number like medical bills and lost income. General damages are things like physical pain, anxiety, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement. Each of these is a separate and distinct harm that deserves individual consideration. By maintaining open communication and staying familiar with each of my clients, I am able to adequately argue these damages to a jury.

When should I hire an attorney?

When should I hire an attorney?

As soon as possible. I can’t tell you how many clients have come to me after attempting to make their claims on their own and there was simply nothing I could do for them because they waited too long without understanding the process. Evidence may need to be preserved. Investigators may need to take statements from witnesses and photographs of evidence that can disappear with time. One example that comes to mind is a case I litigated involving a head on collision. One of my clients was a 10 year old boy that suffered intestinal perforations. A key piece of evidence ended up being the edge of a roadway that was paved over two months after the accident. Fortunately we were able to preserve the evidence before this happened, but potential clients frequently come to me too late after trying to resolve the case on their own.
The bottom line is that you need a trained professional from the beginning to advise the client on the pitfalls that can take away any ability to recover.
