What Our Clients Say
Out of Court Settlements for Personal Injury Cases
Insurance companies and large organizations hate to go to court, especially when they know that there is a chance they will have to pay.
For this reason, many organizations and entities prefer to settle out of court by offering the injured person a settlement prior to trial. It is important that an injured person avoid interacting with insurance companies or representatives without an Escondido personal injury lawyer present.
A lawyer can advise a client on the best course of action to take, and it is important to remember that the goal of the insurance company is to pay as little as possible.

Establishing Liability in Court
Often, in court, it is not always possible to tell who is fully responsible for a car accident. For this reason, many courts often divide responsibility between the plaintiff and defendant.
For example, if person A is hit by a car while jaywalking and they want to take the driver, person B to court, the court may decide that both person A and B should bear an equal amount of responsibility for the accident. It is also possible that because jaywalking is illegal, person A would not receive any compensation.
Establishing liability can be difficult, and before an individual files suit, it is important that they speak with an Escondido car accident lawyer.
