After two decades as San Diego paralysis attorneys, we've learned that most people believe if they're honest with an insurance company and cooperate that they'll be treated fairly. Unfortunately, this is not true.
What many people don't know is that the odds are silently stacked against them in a paralyzing accident and the personal injury claims process is tilted in the insurance company's favor.
We know this insider information because our firms founder, Michael Pines, after receiving his degree from the University of California's Hastings Law School in 1987, was once an attorney who represented insurance companies.
After he found out that insurance companies, who advertised themselves as good guys, actually profited by taking advantage of people with spinal cord injuries, he knew that the job didn't suit him.
Insurance companies, even your own, have trained claims adjustors and an army of attorneys to back them up. Did you know that you are only entitled to one personal injury settlement at the very end of your claim?
This means you have just one chance for justice. If you later find out that your spinal cord was damaged even more than what your doctors originally thought, even your own insurance company will tell you you're on your own.
Since 1992, our personal injury law firm has been dedicated to serving spinal cord injured people in Southern California, primarily in San Diego County.
Our paralysis attorneys realize how important it is to get your insurance claim handled right the first time. We will professionally guide you through the personal injury claims process as you recover from your spinal cord injuries.
