Most accident injury cases stem from car accidents and our law firm has taken on and won millions of dollars in auto accident settlements over the past 40 years.

Some accidents are fatal and often caused by a hidden auto defect as in the case of faulty Takata airbags in Honda cars.

Our San Diego personal injury attorneys have the experience and knowledge to determine if there is more to an auto accident than just the fact that there was a collision.

There are many questions to answer and Bisnar Chase personal injury attorneys will take a thorough evaluation of your accident case then decide how to proceed.

What To Do If You've Suffered A Personal Injury

Personal injury accidents cause grief, financial stress, mental and emotional distress and can take years to recover from. Assaults, automobile accidents, unsafe products, and even poisoning all can cause personal injury and may entitle you to financial compensation.

A personal injury, which is an injury to the body or mind, can be purposely caused by another individual, such as assault, or can be caused by negligence, such as employers providing unsafe working conditions.

Should I File A Personal Injury Claim in San Diego?

You must avoid filing and litigating your own personal injury claim. We urge you to please not take your chances by taking on a personal injury case on your own. Experienced San Diego personal injury lawyers such as Bisnar Chase will have access to expert witnesses, medical professionals and other resources that help immensely in winning the claim.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Claims

If you were involved in an accident for the first time, understanding what you should do next can be stressful. Questions of “how much a lawyer will cost” or “will you be able to gain compensation” come immediately to mind. The legal team at Bisnar Chase handles the most complex cases and is here for any question that you need to be answered. The following are the most frequently asked questions injury victims have after an accident.

  1. Does my case qualify as a personal injury? A personal injury claim involves a person being severely injured due to someone’s negligence. California law states that accident victims must be fully compensated if the injuries could have been prevented. If an insurance company is not offering you the full amount that you need to recover for your losses it is strongly suggested that you speak to a personal injury attorney in San Diego.
  2. How much is my personal injury claim worth? First and foremost do not rely on settlement calculators that you find online. These settlement calculators are incorrect because they are not taking every detail of your accident into account. Some of those details can include rehabilitation, vacation hours from work you have used up since your injury and if you have suffered the loss of a loved one (wrongful death), funeral expenses. The settlement amount that accident victims receive is dependent on the amount of damage that took place physically, mentally and the damage that you have faced to your property. This means that there is not a standard amount of compensation every claimant receives.
  3. Should I settle or file a personal injury lawsuit? The choice of whether you should settle or sue the negligent party can be daunting. You should not settle for anything less than you deserve. If you see that the offer you are handed by the insurance company is not sufficient enough to cover your expenses you can negotiate. If the insurance company does not compromise or does not want to negotiate you may seek legal representation from a San Diego personal injury law firm.
  4. How long will it take to settle my personal injury case? Each personal injury lawsuit is unique. The period of time it will take to settle your accident case can take months or years. The reason why it takes so long at times is due to factors such as the amount of money that is involved, the gathering of all the details of the case or the progression of your injuries. If your injuries have worsened during the trial period then the amount of compensation you should be awarded may need some altering.
  5. Would it beneficial for me to hire a San Diego injury attorney? If you feel as though the negligent party’s insurance company is operating in bad faith, you should hire an accident attorney in San Diego. Some examples of insurance companies acting in bad faith can be denying a claim for no reason, not conducting a full investigation of the accident or using complicated language to confuse or mislead the victim. Our personal injury lawyers in San Diego have been helping clients who have suffered from extreme losses from a catastrophic accident for over 40 years. Our legal representation has sustained a 99% success rate because we won’t settle for the minimum amount of compensation an insurance company offers you. Call us today at 800-561-4887 for a free consultation.

Client Reviews

Bisnar Chase Google Review - Lena

I wasn’t sure if I needed a personal injury attorney because I’d never been in a car accident before. I assumed I’d just go straight through the other driver’s insurance but that quickly became a nightmare. I spent months fighting over the simplest of issues about my case, which was 100% the other driver’s fault. I hired Bisnar Chase to see if they could just take it over for me. I was really impressed with how much they communicated everything to me! I suddenly started getting calls from the insurance company, imagine that. My final settlement was 6 times what I asked for to begin with. Everyone I dealt with was really involved in what was best for me, not the insurance.

Bisnar Chase Review - Natalie

I’m so impressed with this law firm. I lost my mother because of a seat defect when she was rear-ended in an auto accident and Bisnar Chase stepped up and took our case. The staff is wonderful and Brian Chase took his time explaining everything via phone with me. I’m honored to have the best of the best working on our family’s behalf, trying to get justice for my Mom, because of a negligent car company still manufacturing faulty seats. I look forward to working with this firm and am hopeful for a positive outcome. Thank you so much, Brian Chase. I know you will work your hardest on this case. God Bless you.

Bisnar Chase Google Review

I had an attorney for my truck accident who wanted almost 60% of what my case was worth. Worse than that, he was willing to settle for $5,000.00 with the insurance company even though I was still treating for whiplash and back pain. I contacted Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys because a friend recommended them. My case was handled exceptionally well! I was being kept notified throughout the whole process and only when I was comfortable with the settlement figure, did my attorney Gavin Long, accept it. I felt like we were working together and I felt listened to. I would refer Bisnar Chase to anyone who wants quality over quantity!
