San Diego Personal Injury Attorney
Gateway San Diego personal injury law firm is devoted to protecting our clients’ best interests. If you or your family member has been harmed in an accident, you are going through a very emotional time. With everything you have to deal with right now, choosing a San Diego personal injury lawyer can be overwhelming. The reason to choose us is because we care about the outcome of your case. We work tirelessly to ensure that we maximize the amount of compensation that you receive. Sometimes it is possible to get money very quickly for clients by settling a case out of court. But often times insurance companies are not willing to pay out serious money until a complaint is filed with the court. We are not afraid to play hardball with the insurance companies and file a lawsuit. In fact, we pride ourselves on being personal injury attorneys and have an extensive track record of successful case outcomes.
This means that you can be assured that our injury attorneys in California will not push you to accept a quick settlement, and instead will work as long and hard as we must in order to get you the substantial settlement or verdict you deserve. Filing a lawsuit in California can be a long and time-consuming process. If your case is filed in court, opposing counsel will most likely want to take your deposition. A deposition is a time when you appear with your attorney and a court reporter, who writes down everything you say, and opposing counsel has the opportunity to ask you questions are relevant to the case. You need skilled and aggressive injury lawyers at your deposition in order to ensure that the opposing attorney does not ask you questions that violate your constitutional right to privacy, and also to ensure that the opposing attorney doesn’t ask you “trick” questions.
It is not just the opposing San Diego personal injury attorney that gets to take depositions. You also have the right to take depositions of witnesses who have information relevant to your case. Depositions are expensive, and often cost about $1000 a day. If you want to learn more about our San Diego injury attorneys, we will advance all costs in your case, including the cost of depositions. Another cost is expert witnesses. Experts often charge between $300 and $500 an hour, depending on their reputation and education, and depending on how specialized their testimony needs to be. For example, an expert testifying about traumatic brain injury would have to have a tremendous amount of knowledge and education. There are relatively few experts capable of testifying about traumatic brain injury that often occur in car accidents when compared more common injuries such as broken bones.
It is not uncommon for costs in a CA personal injury case, including the cost of depositions and expert witnesses, to be in the tens of thousands of dollars. You need a San Diego personal injury lawyer who is willing to advance those costs so that you do not have to come out of pocket for them.
