We Take Difficult Cases … HEAD ON

The insurance company has a legal team to save them money after YOU have an accident. They would rather pay their lawyers than pay you fairly for your injury claim.

And quite frankly, that pisses us off.

Arthur D’Egidio

With deep experience and expertise in untangling complicated injury cases, and creating clarity to move forward through both steely negotiations and fierce litigation, Arthur prides himself in caring for clients that come to him when they fear their case has either not enough value to fight for or is so complicated that they may not be able to recover the damage that leveled their life. Arthur has proven time and again that no case “has too much hair on it” and that each client deserves the respect and care he would provide for his own family.

Irving Pedroza

With roots in serving communities and people groups that have already been marginalized, Irving drew the line and determined that he would fight for those who felt their case might not have value because they were told in many ways they personally might not be valued like others. Infuriated by seeing anyone under-served and unable to heal or recuperate after being hurt, Irving walks out his purpose as the guardian of the hurting and abandoned. He refuses to back down to insurance companies that feed on misfortune of injured victims and reinstates hope with his legal prowess and refusal to be scared away.

Unfortunately, accidents happen and when it happens you can count on Irving and Arthur to help you. My car accident was not huge, but Irving treated me with respect and both Irving and Arthur worked hard to get me the best settlement under the circumstances. I trust them to provide you with an honest advice because they actually care about their clients.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a common settlement amount for personal injury claims?

Every personal injury case is different, so it’s difficult to determine a common settlement amount. Even if you’re comparing two similar car accidents, the victim’s injuries or the cause of the accident could be different. This means that everyone receives a settlement amount specific to their situation.

Some factors that can affect your settlement include fault, negligence, and the severity of your injuries. Other factors, like economic losses or pain and suffering, can change how much compensation you earn. For example, if you lost wages due to the accident, you would likely earn a more significant settlement amount than if you didn’t lose any wages.

What is a statute of limitations, and how does it affect my case?

A statute of limitations is the set amount of time you have to file a claim or lawsuit after your accident. In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date you sustained your injuries.

This affects your case because it puts a deadline on when you can file a claim. Maybe you got into a minor car crash, but you decided not to seek legal action since you didn’t get hurt. Six months later, your doctor discovers an injury you received from the crash. Now you only have a year and a half to seek compensation for your damages.


Do I need to see a doctor if I don’t feel hurt after an accident?

After a minor accident, you might not feel the need to seek medical attention. However, you must see a doctor even if you don’t feel hurt. A doctor can identify injuries that you didn’t know you had. For example, maybe you have some internal bleeding, which you wouldn’t have known about unless you saw a doctor.

This is important because you can recover more compensation if you have proof of your damages and medical bills you’ve paid. A doctor can provide you with medical records, which you can use as evidence in court. If you’re able to prove your injuries, you can earn more for your damages.

Will I have to go to court for my personal injury case?

Whether or not you have to go to court for your case depends on various factors. Most personal injury cases, though, settle without going to court. Court proceedings can be expensive and time-consuming, so both parties will try to resolve the case on their own.

Your lawyer will try to negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company so that you earn fair compensation without going to court. However, if your lawyer and the other insurance company can’t come to an agreement, you might have to file a lawsuit against them, resulting in court. Sometimes going to court is the better option to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Do I need a lawyer if I didn’t cause the accident?

Some people might think that if they didn’t cause the accident, then they won’t need a personal injury lawyer. It’s your decision whether or not you want to hire a lawyer, but working with one is in your best interest. Without an attorney, you could be wrongfully accused of causing the accident. If you have no one to defend you, you might not receive compensation for your damages.

Working with a personal injury lawyer is also beneficial because they’ll fight to ensure you win fair compensation. Your lawyer will compile evidence, gather witnesses, and negotiate your settlement amount. They’ll do whatever it takes to help you achieve your desired outcome.

How can I maximize my settlement amount?

There are several ways you can maximize your settlement amount. If you can, take pictures and videos of the accident scene and your injuries. You should also exchange information with the other driver and any witnesses. You can use this evidence to prove the other party was at fault for the accident.

Some other tips for maximizing your settlement amount include filing your claim as soon as possible. If you file your claim quickly, you can tell your lawyer what happened at the accident while you still remember it. You can also resolve your claim quicker, which means you’ll get your compensation sooner.
