We Handle All Traffic Accident Cases

Car accidents are a common occurrence on our roadways. If you have been a victim of a car accident that was not your fault, our San Diego automobile accident lawyers can help.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can happen during any part of the day or night. Here are some common types of personal injury that we can help get you compensation for:

We Understand Personal Injury Law

Pines Salomon personal injury lawyers represent the people of San Diego and not the large companies that are out for their own good. These companies often have a hard time seeing the individuals who are affected by accidents. It is our job to make sure that negligent parties and the companies that insure them are held to the standard of the law. These parties must follow their obligations to society when accidents occur. It is our job to make sure that you can get back to normality as soon as possible when unexpected events happen. We will work to make sure that you are compensated for what you had to go through and will provide the guidance that you need to start rebuilding what was lost.

Our attorneys, paralegals, and support staff stick to the belief that no one should have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. While we cannot remove the pain that comes with your injury, and know that money is no replacement for what you have lost, we do believe that there is a responsibility to pay back what has been taken. Recovering from an injury caused by someone else can take years. This process is stressful enough without the added weight of medical bills and living expenses. We will work endlessly to see that you are compensated for your loss so that you can concentrate on recovery.

Our experienced team of San Diego lawyers is aware that there are emotional struggles that come with recovery as well. No one should have to experience the stress of trying to pay for medical bills while working to make up for time out of work. Even if you are unsure whether or not you have the right to seek compensation for the harm you’ve suffered, we can help. Our personal injury lawyers are here to help you understand what your options are and work to get you the compensation you deserve.

Our Commitment to San Diego citizens

If you have experienced a serious personal injury from an accident you are probably wondering how you will ever be able to repay your medical expenses or recover the costs your family has incurred. Luckily, the responsible party is accountable for the things that you have had to endure. Many times, people are not aware that they can dispute an insurance company’s decision about an accident. Insurance companies can deny you the money you are legally entitled to, and we are here to uncover and undue their lack of accountability.

Getting compensation from individuals is not easy. However, insurance companies are supposed to compensate you for the damages you’ve incurred. Unfortunately, some insurance companies are only concerned about retaining their own money. These companies may not be on your side. Denying or underpaying claims is a common practice for these companies. Luckily, Pines Solomon injury lawyers know the practices that insurance companies use and are skilled at reversing these practices so that the money ends up in the right hands – yours.

Our select group of San Diego lawyers will apply the highest level of care and dedication to each case that we pursue. This level of consideration is hard to find at other firms but it is our mission to offer you the best representation available. We will not take advantage of you, and we will go after those who do.

When we work on your case we think of you as more than just our client. We consider you a friend. We will not rest until we are satisfied that you have received the compensation that you deserve. We will not settle for a quick and easy settlement if we aren’t sure that you are getting what you deserve. Our San Diego lawyers will work tirelessly to get you every penny you are owed and will do so with the talent and expertise that surpasses our competition.

We Will Get the Compensation You Deserve

There are many different types of damages that can occur as a result of a personal injury. When you are the victim of a personal injury, you may suffer physical, emotional, and financial hardship. Our experienced attorneys create a thorough case to ensure that you receive the maximum settlement award possible to cover any expenses and damages incurred as a result of your injury. This can include:

  • Loss of Earnings
  • Medical Bills
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Property Damage

How can hiring an attorney help me now?

Upon hiring our San Diego personal injury law firm, we assume the responsibility of your claim. Our experienced personal injury lawyers contact all parties involved with the auto accident and their insurance companies and promptly cancel all prior settlement offers and authorizations. In essence, we begin working immediately towards building a much larger settlement offer.

Insurance Companies Take Advantage of You

A lot of things can go wrong for your personal injury claim before you hire an attorney. You are most likely not qualified to represent yourself after an automobile accident injury. Many of these reasons are not your fault:

  • You may be in pain.
  • You may have lost a loved one due to a   wrongful death.
  • You could be under strong medication and therefore unable to think or speak clearly.

Meanwhile, insurance companies generally have no real obligation to give you a fair settlement offer, let alone explain the process to you. It is a numbers game for them. Their main goal is to settle for as little or no money as possible in your personal injury claim.

Good Personal Injury Attorneys Do More Than Settle Your Claim

A good personal injury lawyer handles each claim on a case-by-case basis because each claim is different. That being said, here are some of the benefits of hiring our San Diego personal injury attorneys:

  • If you do not have health insurance, we will do our best to set you up with medical treatment, which will be reimbursed at the end of the claim.

  • We carefully examine the nature and extent of your injuries to determine what your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and any future expenses.

  • We do our best to make sure that we receive all medical billings you have received.

  • If you are hospitalized or on pain medication, we will not allow a recorded statement.

  • Even if a recorded statement is done, there are many limits that we can place on it to protect your rights.

Always remember, you only receive one settlement for a personal injury claim. With just one chance for justice, it is extremely important that you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your injury.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an automobile accident that you didn’t cause, then we urge you to contact our bilingual offices as soon as possible at 1-858-280-0263 or please click here for a FREE consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney in San Diego. We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay nothing until we recover money on your behalf.

Do you charge any attorney’s fees?

At our San Diego personal injury law firm , our attorneys do not charge a single dollar until we recover money for you. While many other lawyers will charge you an expensive hourly rate, we only charge for the result. Our personal injury attorneys charge what are referred to as contingency fees.

Anyone Can Afford Our Personal Injury Lawyers

Contingency fees are a great way to allow injured people to hire a personal injury attorney immediately. A contingency means a specific condition must occur before we, at the law firm, are paid a dime. Our personal injury lawyers get paid when someone injured in an automobile accident is properly compensated for their injuries and other losses. The attorney fees are calculated from your liability recovery.

The reason for this arrangement is that it allows anyone access to the legal system, not just those that can afford it. Many lawyers charge high hourly rates, so how will someone that is unable to work due to injuries and cannot afford their medical bills be able to hire an expensive lawyer? The answer is that they cannot! That is not the case at our law firm. Anyone can hire us, regardless of your income level.

How long until I receive my settlement?

When will I receive my personal injury settlement? Our personal injury attorneys hear that question more than any other. Since no two automobile accident injuries are the same, each insurance claim is similarly unique. In fact, the time frame for your settlement all depends on your health.

We’ve always believed that a good personal injury lawyer usually waits until you have reached the maximum medical improvement, meaning your doctor clears your release from medical treatment, before presenting a settlement demand. Until that time, our attorneys investigate all the necessary facts and documents to properly present your personal injury settlement demand.

Our Personal Injury Attorneys Produce a Settlement Demand

A settlement demand is a complicated legal document that our personal injury attorneys present to insurance companies. In calculating your personal injury settlement demand, both you and your attorney must consider many things, which include:

  • Past, present and future medical bill expenses
  • Lost earnings from time missed from work as well as the time you’re expected to miss in the future
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Any other expenses that may be required to treat long-term injuries or ailments associated with the accident.
We Seek Compensation for All Damage Claims

Pain and suffering claims focus on human factors, and it’s something that your insurance company will not calculate in their small personal injury settlement offer.

  • Time you lost with your spouse or significant other
  • Time you lost with your children
  • Missed birthday parties
  • Vacations cut short

Since your insurance company might not tell you about these damages, not to mention the difficulty involved in calculated pain and suffering, wouldn’t it be easier to have an experienced personal injury lawyer — who can include all these human factors into your personal injury settlement demand — deal with the insurance companies?

We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you owe us nothing until we recover money on your behalf.

Can I handle a claim without an attorney?

A lot of our clients ask us if it’s possible to settle a personal injury claim with an insurance company on their own. The answer is yes, but you will likely settle for pennies on the dollar.

Insurance Companies Are Not Your Friends

Insurance companies are usually very skilled at putting on a friendly front and getting you to trust them because they spend millions of dollars on advertising and use slogans and celebrity endorsements to gain your trust (“You are in good hands with us”). Additionally, insurance companies often promise that your medical bills will get paid, and that you will a fair amount for your pain and suffering.

What you must realize is that insurance representatives really do not care about your well-being. Their general goal is to settle your claim as soon as they can for the least amount of money possible. Many insurance claims adjusters will try to get you to sign a document called a General Release of All Claims right after your auto accident and offer a token minimal settlement. You are entitled to recover money for other damages, but your insurance company will probably not inform you of those rights. They also will not until you have fully recovered from your injuries, making it likely that you will still be left with outstanding medical bills. In fact, insurance companies are not required to help you.

You are on your own.

The best way to make sure that your legal rights are protected and recover a fair monetary settlement is to hire experienced personal injury attorneys , people who can help you recover what you deserve.

Should I exaggerate my damages?

The number one goal for every personal injury lawyer is to maximize a client’s settlement, but the one thing you should never do is exaggerate injuries or damages. Why? You must accurately portray your damages because other people have taken advantage of the system to recover more money than they are legally entitled. These people commit what’s referred to in the legal world as insurance fraud.

It’s Against the Law to Exaggerate Your Injuries

In what’s referred to as the duty to mitigate (or lessen) your damages, the law prohibits you from exaggerating injuries or damages sustained in a car accident. This means that, when making an insurance claim, you are obligated to be as honest as possible when disclosing your injuries or damages and should never exaggerate things.

There are many ways that people exaggerate in their personal injury claims, and here are some common examples:

  • Taking unnecessary time off from work
  • Claiming for a pre-existing medical condition that was not aggravated by your accident
  • Receiving too much treatment when it is not medically necessary
  • Claiming that unrelated business and personal losses were a result of the accident
  • Obtaining an unrealistically expensive estimate to fix your car’s property damage.

Not only could you face criminal charges for insurance fraud, lessening your damages also helps increase your trustworthiness in the eyes of the insurance company. When you deal with insurance companies in good faith, it shows that you are not taking advantage of them and helps your chances for a better personal injury settlement.

Michael Pines and his team have kept their promise.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.

Herminio Salamante

I cannot say enough good things about my experience

My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.

Michael worked non-stop, nothing deterred him

After falling on a cruise ship and being emergency evacuated to a hospital in Mexico, I was scared and needed help, especially because I am 89 years old. Michael worked non-stop, through the weekend, communicating internationally with stubborn insurance personnel who tried to put up roadblocks every step of the way.
