What Type Of Auto Insurance Should I Get?

Insurance coverage for a personal injury accident

In all of our cases, we prepare a Master Case Plan. We summarize all the facts concerning liability and injury which equate to damages. If appropriate we include prior medical history if it is relevant to the injuries, our client suffered in the accident. We know that our clients' medical history will be an issue in the case if they have a preexisting medical condition.

We will develop a litigation action plan for every case we file in court. Our litigation action plan always contains an investigation plan, a discovery plan and a trial or arbitration plan.

We use investigators on large injury cases.  We never rely just on a police report. For us, the police report is just the beginning. 

We have a group of sophisticated investigators which includes retired police officers and CHP officers who investigate further beyond the police report.  Their goal is to lay the groundwork to obtain liability or responsibility against all possible parties for our clients to recover from.

With over 50 years of combined experience in personal injury and car accidents, we work with accident reconstruction experts for cases including auto and truck accidents, defective products, defective tires, tire blowouts, tire separations, roof crush cases, defective automobiles, machinery related injuries, bicycles, motorcycles and industrial equipment.

Every client is assigned to a lawyer and paralegal in a team setting . All of our resources are directed to each case.

Our discovery plan is a litigation tool we use to gather information about not only the facts of the case, but about what defense's the defendant will allege. We do all this in all cases in order to win.

Our trial or arbitration plan will allow us to organize everything concerning your case. We will know what every witness will say, and we will be thoroughly prepared. Excellent preparation causes an excellent result. Our plan includes every witness we intend to call and a summary of what each witness will say. It will include all the questions we plan to ask that witness. We will also include all of the other side's witnesses so that we can prepare our cross-examination and impeachment of that witness. Our plan will also include a list of every exhibit that we will introduce and our plan for jury selection if it is a jury trial.

In this methodical approach, we guarantee success. On every litigation case we develop and follow our case plan. We use high-tech case management software to assist us to do the absolute very best for our clients.
