How our Law Firm Handles Your California Personal Injury Case
Once you have retained us to handle your California Personal Injury case, our law firm immediately goes to work for you to get you the best possible result, and the most monetary compensation in your personal injury case. Some of the things we do in your case are listed below.
Our law firm investigates all aspects of the accident, and your damages.
When possible, witness statements are taken, and reports are acquired.
If necessary, experts are hired to prove the defendant was at fault.
All necessary reports, records and bills are obtained to prove the nature and extent of the damages.
Much of the information is gathered through the use of specialized forms sent to you, and witnesses, and doctors.
The information we obtain is stored in computers and in physical files.
Our system allows members of our firm to be able to access your case records and history in a timely and accurate manner to aid in the prosecution of your personal injury case.
We monitor your medical treatment.
If you do not have insurance or if your medical provider is not giving you the result you desire, we will refer you to a medical provider near you, who will treat you without you having to pay any money out of your pocket, they will be paid out of the personal injury case.
Once you have finished medical treatment, we will request that your doctor provide a narrative report that will assist us in negotiating and resolving your case, and we will acquire all medical records.
Our law firm communicates information to you and requisite entities, while handling your personal injury case through email, fax, correspondence, and court pleadings and forms.
Documents may be sent to you, insurance companies, witnesses, doctors, employers, Courts, or other persons or companies requiring information.
We use high speed computers, laser printers, and state of the art equipment to increase productivity while keeping cost to a minimum.
Most members of our law firm are experts in all or certain aspects of processing your personal injury claim.
The functions that are usually necessary to competently process a personal injury claim are:
- Gathering information (investigators);
- Negotiation (Lawyers); and
- Litigation (Trail Lawyers).
Each member of our law firm is extensively trained in their area of personal injury expertise to obtain the best possible results for you in your personal injury case.
A Legal Assistant is responsible for communications with you and solving all problems not requiring the intervention of a lawyer.
Under the supervision of Mr. Fernandez or another senior attorney, the Negotiator places a value on your personal injury case, presents the claim to the insurance company, responds to defenses and settles the personal injury claim with your consent.
Negotiations begin as soon as you retain our law firm and end when your personal injury case is completed.
The firm has trial lawyers who experts in taking personal injury cases that do not settle to trial.
The trial may be a bench or jury trial, arbitration or mediation.
Arbitration is similar to a trial except a retired judge or lawyer decides the case.
Mediation is the process of placing the case before an independent retired judge or lawyer who helps to resolve the case without witnesses testifying.
While very few cases are actually litigated, (most cases are settled) the trial lawyers and their support staff are specially trained to prepare the case for trial, arbitration or mediation.
Unlike many personal injury law firms, our firm actually takes cases to trial.
Other attorneys have hired Norman Gregory Fernandez to litigate their own cases.
