A free consultation with a Monterey County personal injury attorney will give you the information you need about your chances of collecting damages for your accident.  An experienced attorney will never give you false hope about your claim, nor will he or she give you an inflated value as a target settlement.  If you do not have a case, an accident lawyer will tell you so.  On the other hand, if your case has merit, a good lawyer can help you recover damages to pay for your injuries and to make sure you are fairly represented.

When To Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

With most personal injury cases you have to have damages. If a person claims to have bought a product that could have been harmful, but was not, then it's very hard to argue damages for that. However, if you were in a car accident, even if the other party had no insurance, you may be entitled to recovery if you were injured. The type of injuries and length of treatment will have a lot to do with the compensation you receive.

A good attorney will have years of trial experience and a lot of success in the courtroom. The last thing you'll want is for your attorney to hand off your case to another law firm if it has to go to trial. You should consult a personal injury attorney if you have sustained even minor to moderate injuries; the attorney will have the expertise to tell you if you have a case and whether to begin seeking long term treatment.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“My grandson and I were involved in a roll-over accident in which he broke his ankle, and I broke my neck. Unfortunately it was caused by a hit and run driver who got away. One call to Bisnar/Chase and they came right away. Of course, my case took about 3 years to settle, but Bisnar/Chase was there to inform me every step of the way as to what was going on. They answer calls and emails right away, and I was never left wondering what was going on. The whole staff is caring and friendly and everyone there treated us like family. Not to mention the fact that they never seemed to forget you, by sending birthday cards with BaskinRobbin gift cards and on New Years they always sent the fancy fortune cookies! I always thought that was very thoughtful and caring of them. I had nothing but a positive experience with them and I would recommend Bisnar/Chase to all of my friends and family or to anyone who is in need of legal help.”

“INTEGRITY, CONFIDENCE AND THOROUGHNESS-THIS FIRM IS AMAZING! when my German Shepherd was falsely accused of biting a child, I thought, who better than the best personal injury attorney out there to ask for advise? Researched best attorneys in OC for dog bites, and was directed to the law firm of Bisnar and Chase. To say I was astounded at the depth of the response I received to my online enquiry is an understatement.
Upfront they said they weren't defense attorneys, but (after winning numerous severe dog bite cases over the years) they took the time to line item their opinion of how events would unfold (putting my mind at ease). In this day and age, the fact they took the time out of their busy day to respond so thoroughly to a cry for help ( inwhich they had absolutely nothing to gain), speaks volumns about the integrity of this firm. I wouldn't hesitate to use them, or refer them.”
