PERSONAL INJURY LAW

San Diego Personal Injury & Family Law Attorney, Edward G. Summers

The phrase “personal injury” is a legal term that refers to physical injuries and financial losses resulting from another’s reckless, careless, or intentional wrongdoing. Under California law, a person who suffers a personal injury can recover money in compensation for their immediate and long-term medical care, lost wages, and lost earning potential.

In almost any type of serious injury or wrongful death case, you will be seeking to recover your damages against an insurance company or corporation, not an individual.  Insurance companies have sophisticated systems in place to deny or diminish your claim—insurance adjusters, appraisers, investigators, and a host of lawyers.If the defendant does not offer a fair settlement, I will take your case to court to let a jury decide.   It is also in the insurance company’s interest to delay paying your claim as long as possible.

The lawyer you hire is the only person who is looking out exclusively for your interests and who cares about what happens to you.  I am your voice in negotiations and in court.  If the insurance company refuses to honor your valid personal injury claim for compensation, I will not shy away from taking your case to court to let a jury decide.  Do not lose your right to sue; by filing a claim quickly you will protect your rights.

I offer an initial consultation with no obligation, and operate on a contingency basis, which means you pay no attorney fees until I achieve a successful verdict or settlement for you.
