$190,000 Settlement

We just negotiated a $190,000.00 settlement for our client that was struck by a car while crossing the street. Initially, the other insurance company blamed the entire accident on our client. We conducted a scene inspection and found a witness that was able help show that the driver was not paying proper attention to the roadway. Even after proving liability, the insurance company refused to offer a fair amount for his injuries.
After filing suit and going through discovery, we were able to properly communicate our client’s unique hardships and we reached a fair settlement. This one wasn’t easy, but we got to the finish line and the client is very happy. Onto the next one!!

Moving Vehicle Accident

$250,000.00 Policy Limits Settlement

We just finalized a $250,000.00 Policy Limits Settlement for our client that was knocked down by a car that was backing up in a bank parking lot.
Our client is an elderly man and was knocked to the ground causing him to suffer a back injury. After coming onto the case, we helped set the client up with a good specialist so he could start to get the care he needs. Due to his age, the recovery has been a very difficult process. He now walks slightly hunched over and in pain. After getting the defendant to tender their full policy limits, we were able to get our client’s insurance to also tender the policy limits for a total of $250,000.00. Our client was very stressed about the thought of having to litigate his case and we are thrilled we were able to get every dollar for him without ever filing a lawsuit 💙

$70,000 Settlement. Rear Ended by Drunk Driver

We just settled at case for $70,000 for our client was was injured after being rear ended by a drunk driver.
Thankfully, our client didn’t suffer serious injuries, but she had to go to the emergency room and sought care with a chiropractor for several months.
When we went to settle the case with the at fault party’s insurance they made an extremely low ball offer. Due to the DUI, we filed a lawsuit and asked for punitive damages. The judge granted the punitive damages and we were able to settle the case for five times what had originally been offered. The client is beyond happy and hopefully the defendant learned a lesson. DON’T DRIVE DRUNK!!

$15,000 Each Client Policy Limits

We just settled a case for two clients that were visiting San Diego when they were rear ended by a driver that wasn’t paying attention. Thankfully, neither suffered large injuries and they only needed to treat with a chiropractor and both fully recovered. The issue was that both clients missed a few days from work and that loss was fairly significant. The at fault party refused to take any lost wages into consideration. After several rounds of back and forth and almost filing a lawsuit, the insurance company finally tendered their full policy limits of $15,000 for each client. The clients are very grateful a lawsuit was not needed and they are able to be made whole so they can move on with life 💙

$100,000.00 Policy Limits

We just settled a case for the full $100,000.00 Policy Limits. Our client is a motorcycle rider that was hit when a car switched lanes into him while he was riding on the 163 freeway. Unfortunately, there were no witnesses and our client was placed at fault in the police report. We often have motorcycle cases with adverse police reports as there is a bias against motorcycles. Our office is used to these fights and we are well equipped to turn these situations around. And that’s exactly what we did here. This case avoided litigation, which means costs and fees stayed low, maximizing the recovery for the client. He is a good man and deserved this result 💙

$500,000.00 Policy Limits

We just settled $500,000.00 Policy Limits case for two ladies that were injured when a drunk driver hit them, causing their vehicle to flip. Both were rushed to the hospital by ambulance. In our opinion, DUI accidents are significantly different than normal accidents. We are extremely aggressive when it’s a DUI situation and we always demand the full policy limits. Because if you are so malicious as to drive drunk, you deserve the consequences when that decision hurts someone else. This case was no different. After refusing to move off the policy, the at fault party tendered their full $250,000 policy for BOTH of our clients. No lawsuit had to be filed. No expensive litigation costs. No unneeded stress. This is a win all the way around and we are very happy for our clients!!

$550,000 Settlement

We just finalized a $550,000 settlement for our client that suffered a knee injury while at work. The injury required our client to have a surgery on his knee. Although most work place accidents must go through workers compensation, we were able to show that a third party had caused the dangerous condition that caused our client to be injured. After proving that the other business was the cause of the negligence, we were able to negotiate a $550,000 offer to settle the case. Accidents are a part of life and we really hope you never need us; but if you do, we are always here to help!!

$100,000 Policy Limits

We just settled a case for the full $100,000.00 Policy Limits for a client that was injured in a car accident. The client had suffered a prior wrist injury and had surgery on the wrist a couple years prior to the accident. Unfortunately, this accident aggravated her wrist. After following up with her surgeon and trying physical therapy for several months, the surgeon recommended a second procedure to fix the injury from the accident. Due to COVID and other life obstacles, the client is unable to have the surgery at this time. We sent the at fault party a very thorough demand package that explained in detail how this was a new injury and not pre-existing. The insurance company continued to blame the prior injury. We let them know we had enough and were filing a lawsuit. But instead of filing immediately, we sent them a supplemental package with some additional hardships and a copy of the lawsuit we were prepared to file. Upon reviewing and realizing we were not playing around, the insurance company tendered they entire policy. This is a big win for our client because although some cases need to be litigated, litigation is stressful and time consuming. Our client deserved this outcome so she can move on with her life 💙

Personal Injury

$250,000 settlement for a client that was injured in a car accident

We just finalized a $250,000 settlement for a client that was injured in a car accident. Our client was an elderly woman that was a passenger in a vehicle that was rear ended. She immediately had pain in her shoulder and went to the emergency room the same day. After months of physical therapy and an MRI, the client was recommended for surgery due to a tear in her shoulder. The surgery went great and the client’s recovery went smooth but when we tried to settle the case with the at fault party they refused to consider the client’s pain and suffering and only offered enough to cover the medical bills. After filing a lawsuit and allowing the insurance company to take a deposition of our client, they more than doubled what they were offering and we were able to settle the case for $250,000.00. It may have taken a few extra steps and more work, but the client got a fair settlement and that is all that matters 💙

$100,000.00 Policy Limits Settlement injured in a rear end collision

We just finalized a $100,000.00 Policy Limits Settlement for a client that was injured in a rear end collision. The client was completely stopped when she was hit and the accident caused her car to be a total loss.
After treating for nearly a year, the client attempted to settle the case with the at fault party but they refused to be fair. After refusing to offer more than $12,000.00 (which wouldn’t even come close to covering her medical bills) we filed a lawsuit and turned up the heat. After discovery, we were able to show the other side the true value of the case and they offered their full $100,000.00 policy.
Sometimes you don’t need an attorney, but sometimes you are forced into the situation. We hope you never need our help, but we are always here to help.

$250,000.00 for our client that suffered a shoulder injury in a car accident

We just settled a case for $250,000.00 for our client that suffered a shoulder injury in a car accident.
Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was in a large accident. She immediately had pain in her shoulder but it was not properly diagnosed. We helped get the client into a shoulder specialist who was able to diagnose her with a tear in her shoulder.
After surgery, the insurance company failed to offer a fair amount of money to settle the case. As a consequence, we filed a lawsuit on the case. Fortunately, after showing the value of the case in discovery, the at fault party finally made a fair offer to settle the case.
This could not come at a better time for our client who has been hit hard by COVID and the economic shutdown. We are just happy we could help 💙

That was T boned by another vehicle that was pulling out of a side street.   There was not a significant amount of property damage and the at fault insurance company tried to claim there was no way our client could have been injured in the accident.  However, our client was injured, and ended up needing a hip surgery as a result of the accident.  After filing a lawsuit and going through discovery and depositions, we were able to reach a settlement through the mediation process.

$300,000.00 Policy Limit settlement

$300,000.00 Policy Limit settlement for a client that suffered a back injury in a car accident.  The accident itself was straight forward as the other driver admitted to running the red light, but unfortunately they did not have any insurance coverage on their vehicle. 

Thanks to the client carrying Uninsured Motorist Coverage (Check your car insurance policy!! If you live in San Diego, you NEED this coverage), we were able to capture all the money prior to the client ever having a surgery.  The timing was important in order to put as much of the money in the client’s pocket as possible. This client is a decorated Federal agent and we are honored to be able to help make this unfortunate situation right for him.

$1,000,000.00 Policy Limit settlement

We just finalized a $1,000,000.00 Policy Limit settlement for a younger gentleman that was injured in a car accident.   Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was hit by a pickup truck that ran a red light.  The client was able to walk away from the accident but he did suffer injuries to his neck and back that eventually required surgery. Unfortunately, the client did not have health insurance at the time of the accident.  Due to his injuries, we helped connect him with one of the top doctors in Southern California so he could get all the treatment and care he needed.

Initially, the insurance company refused to pay out on the claim but after forcing the claim into Formal Arbitration, we were able to get them to tender the full $1 million policy for the client.  The client is now healthy and back to doing what he loves (playing golf).  We are so grateful for the trust he put in our office and we are happy he is able to close this chapter and move on with his life with his health and dignity restored.

$50,000.00 Policy Limit Settlement

We finalized a $50,000.00 Policy Limit Settlement for a client that suffered very serious injuries in a motorcycle accident.  Unfortunately, there was only $50,000.00 to recover and the client had incurred over $250,000.00 in medical bills.  This is obviously not an ideal situation but it’s very common due to the fact most people only carry minimal insurance coverage (also why EVERYONE should have Underinsured Motorist coverage on their own policy).

Fortunately, Attorney Paul Batta was able to negotiate the medical bills to under $15,000.00 and our office reduced our attorney fees to put as much of the settlement in the client’s pocket as possible.  We know there will always be situations that we cannot make fully right due to unfortunate circumstances, but we will always do everything in our power to make sure every client gets the best result possible.

$500,000.00 settlement

RECENT SETTLEMENT UPDATE:  We just finalized a $500,000.00 settlement for our clients that were rear ended on the freeway after stopping behind a vehicle that was stopped in the middle of the freeway.  Unfortunately, the driver suffered a broken arm, and the passenger suffered a significant concussion. 

After taking the case and investigating the situation, we discovered that the vehicle our clients had initially stopped behind was stopped because it’s driver had fallen asleep and was intoxicated.   It was a unique case as there were two at fault parties that contributed to the accident and we had to recover from both in order to make this situation right for our clients.

Thankfully, we were able to negotiate a fair resolution with both insurance companies.  Our clients are now healthy and very happy to close this chapter in their life with dignity and respect.

$500,000 motorcycle injury policy limits

We recently settled a motorcycle injury case for the full $500,000 policy limits. The client was injured when the at fault party ran a stop sign. The other insurance company initially tried to blame our client for the accident but we were able to establish liability and help get the client the care for his arm and shoulder that were injured in the accident.
The client, who has been an avid rider for the last 30 years, will likely never ride again due to this accident and we were able to convey his hardships and injuries and the insurance company has agreed to pay every penny of the $500k policy.

This client has worked hard his entire life to enjoy his retirement and the enjoyment he has lost from not being able to participate in his passion of riding motorcycles deserves compensation. We are very happy for this gentleman and his family.
