Can My Case Be Settled Without Trial?

To Our Valued Clients:

As you are aware, the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has been declared a state, national, and global pandemic. In response, the State of California has issued orders to "shelter in place" and this means that all non-essential businesses must close their doors for the time being.

The Director of the California Department of Public Health has declared that "professional services, such as legal or accounting services, may continue their operation when necessary to assist in compliance with legally mandated activities." Still, we must all do our part to combat the spread of COVID-19. Accordingly, our attorneys and support staff are working remotely from home and our offices will close until these restrictions are lifted.

We will continue working very hard behind the scenes for all clients. If you need any assistance or would like to set up a special appointment to discuss any concerns you may have, please contact us by phone at (800) 345-4LAW (4529) or via e-mail at

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?
    There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
  • How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?

    This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.

  • What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?

    The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.

  • Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?

    Yes. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000.
