Wilshire Law Firm Provides Complete Personal Injury Legal Services
Wilshire Law Firm of Los Angeles, California specializes in personal injury cases and can offer accident victims complete legal services from the time they arrive at a medical facility until the negligent parties have paid full compensation for all injuries and financial loss they incur. Founder and Managing Partner, Bobby Saadian, a California native and graduate of Pepperdine University Law School, has assembled an elite team of personal injury trial lawyers, accident investigators, medical and engineering experts, and financial actuaries. Services provided include:
Medical Care Management
If you do not have adequate health insurance, the best medical treatment may be denied to you. In the critical hours after an accident, receiving the proper and necessary care is vital to your eventual recovery and rehabilitation. Wilshire Law Firm ensures that you get all necessary care provided by competent and caring health care professionals at the leading hospitals and medical facilities.
Depending on the circumstances of your case and the extent of your injuries, the firm may be able to negotiate an agreement with the health care providers to defer payment for your treatment until your case is settled and compensation paid. For other clients, it may be necessary to arrange financing of your treatment, again, payable upon collection of the financial settlement. The company has relationships in place with legal financing companies and major medical facilities in the Los Angeles area.
Contingent Fee Representation
For qualifying clients, Wilshire Law Firm will perform all legal services required to secure your complete compensation with no out-of-pocket expense to the client. Under the Contingent Fee Agreement, Wilshire earns no fee unless and until a settlement that is satisfactory to you has been negotiated or a judgment has been awarded by the court and payment from the defendants has been paid. If the firm fails to secure a satisfactory settlement, you owe nothing regardless of how long the attorneys have worked on your case or how many legal costs have been incurred in that effort.
When the settlement has been paid, the firm simply deducts an agreed percentage for its fees plus any legal expenses and court costs from that payment. For all clients, regardless of the amount of damages and difficulty in securing a settlement, the firm exerts every possible effort required to secure your full compensation as quickly as possible.
If your injuries resulted from an accident, such as a car wreck or work-related mishap, Wilshire has the capability to deploy a complete accident investigation team to the scene within a few hours of the tragedy. Time is of the essence since evidence can quickly disappear – for example, skid marks can wash away in a sudden rain, damaged property can be repaired or replaced, and witnesses can move away or forget the details of what they saw or heard. The firm acts quickly to collect and secure the critical evidence that will support your claim for damages.
The investigative team includes onsite photographers and videographers who document the conditions that exist in the aftermath of the accident. A civil engineer assesses environmental factors that may have contributed to the accident, such as poor road conditions or a lack of warning signage. A mechanical engineer analyzes the design and manufacture of any products or devices that may have malfunctioned to cause the accident, such as the steering linkage on a car or the cables on an overhead crane. Investigators also interview witnesses and anyone in the immediate vicinity of the accident and take their statements describing the events leading up to the accident from their perspectives.
The Wilshire attorneys have built a network of medical and engineering experts who can testify as to their opinions regarding medical treatment received and physical forces that may have contributed to the accident. A doctor specializing in the exact injuries sustained will review the health care provider’s diagnosis of your injuries and recommended treatment for inconsistencies, and they can offer their own alternative treatment recommendations as appropriate. Their testimony is particularly effective for establishing the long-term cost of needed treatment, rehabilitation, and personal care.
Engineers are also available from all disciplines and have the necessary credentials and work experience to speak as authorities in their respective fields. Their expertise can pinpoint the cause of an accident, or conversely, eliminate mechanical failures as a cause.
Negotiation with Insurance Companies
Few personal injury cases ever go to trial. In most cases, the defendant’s insurance company settles with the plaintiff after reviewing the facts of the case. However, they do not always accept your calculation of financial loss, and will almost always offer less for subjective damages, such as pain and suffering or loss of spousal consortium, than you deserve. Their attorneys are very good at minimizing any payout to plaintiffs; however, the Wilshire attorneys are not intimidated.
We fight for every penny owed to you and know what it takes to force the insurance company to pay up. Having earned a solid reputation for strong client representation by successfully negotiating many personal injury settlements, we have the respect of those insurance company attorneys and receive a fair settlement offer to begin with, so that you don’t waste precious weeks negotiating up from a low offer.
