When you have been injured by someone else's negligence in California, all you want to do is heal your body and your life. 


Insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid paying you the compensation that you deserve. Some companies will even try to prevent you from seeking legal action. They will send letters to people like you making them feel like they should not hire an attorney. 

Insurance companies always offer unfair settlements that are below what the true value of the case is. Until they see that a plaintiff (like you!) is willing to go to trial.  Remember when we told you to ask other attorneys about their trial experience? This is where it becomes important. 

The attorneys at Case Barnett Law are not only fearless when it comes to going to trial, they are passionate about it. Many attorneys will shy away from trial and the insurance companies know this.  Case Barnett Law is not afraid of trial. We are not afraid of insurance companies. We know that we can get our clients the compensation they deserve. 

Many attorneys will shy away from trial and the insurance companies know this. 

When hiring an attorney it is important to be knowledgeable about their trial experience and victories. This is because it matters. Does your attorney always settle cases or will he push them to trial? Insurance companies, as well as the lawyers for the defendants can (and do!) very easily see what kind of attorney they are working with. An attorney with many trial verdicts shows that she/he is willing to do whatever it takes to get the fair compensation for their client. An attorney who is unafraid to go to trial is also a rarity.  What kind of person actually enjoys jury trial? We do!  

When a plaintiff retains legal counsel the insurance companies know that they now have to deal with an experienced advocate. Not only do plaintiff's personal injury attorneys care about our clients, we only get paid if our client wins. The insurance companies know this. 

The attorneys at Case Barnett Law are not only experienced in legal matters. We are also masters at negotiating and know that we can get the best outcome for our clients.

We Fight for Victims’ Rights

As a small group of attorneys dedicated to helping people, we have the ability to choose our clients carefully. We have a core belief in helping the individual against the unjust and the opportunistic. Because of this belief, we also fight for the rights of people who have been injured or killed. We are organizers, researchers, writers, and advocates for justice. We think outside of the box, dig into the details, and push for legal changes that make our world a safer and better place.

To many people, the term "Personal Injury Lawyer" has bad connotations. They think of ambulance chasers just out to make a buck. The truth is that the personal injury attorney is the person who tells the story of the victim. The personal injury lawyer is the one who battles to obtain justice for those who feel defeated, whose lives will never be the same.

Important Information About California Car Accident Cases: Just for You. 

In an injury, accident or wrongful death case in California the person who was injured (the plaintiff) is responsible for proving that they negligence of another person caused the injury to occur. 

There is also this little thing called "comparative negligence." This means that your recovery will be reduced by the amount of fault that lies with you. An attorney can help you negotiate this strict California comparative negligence policy. 

Oftentimes, expert testimony is necessary to prove parts of your claim. Expert testimony is usually needed to prove the extent of your physical injury and how those injuries are related to your medical bills. Even more importantly, the expert will explain how both the injuries and medical bills are due to the defendant's negligence. Expert testimony is also used to prove how your injuries may affect your life or your ability to work. 

Case Barnett Law is not afraid of taking a case all the way to trial. 

We are back to the importance of trial. Insurance companies use another little thing called "pre-suit negotiation." This means they gather as much information as possible on you, your lawyer, your doctor etc. Many attorneys will spend (waste?) time trying to negotiate with the insurance company before actually filing the case.  

An attorney who loves trial will not do this. Why? Because an attorney who is fearless wants the case set for trial in case negotiations break down along the way. Case Barnett Law will almost always file a lawsuit before we negotiate. We always want there to be a trial date in place for your case. If we settle for a fair number before trial, great. If not, we are ready, willing, and beyond able to take your case to trial.

We also never want the statute of limitations to almost run out before we file suit. There are many terrible stories about this happening to people. Google it. Like anything in life, there are sometimes exceptions, and your case may be one in which waiting to file suit is justified. However, it's never justified to wait until the last moment just to play a game of "Chicken" with the insurance company. 

We also warn any friend who comes our way to be aware of attorneys making promises to you. Sometimes people will say anything to get a "sale" and with technology accessible to all, anyone can slap up a website and call themselves an expert. We have even seen attorneys who aren't licensed in California attempt to represent someone in the state. They hope to grab a settlement from the insurance company before the case moves forward. When it doesn't settle they are left trying to find a licensed attorney to file the suit and save them. This is never good for the client and it can put your entire case in danger. 

If you would like to speak to one of our attorneys about your case call Case Barnett Law today.

Answers to the Top 5 Questions About Car Accident Cases in California

1. What are the first steps I should take after an accident?

When you are involved in a car collision, it is important that you immediately or as soon as possible have your car examined for any defects in the car. Typically in an auto accident, the car repair costs are going to get covered by either your own insurance company or the other parties' insurance company. It is really going to be driven by which insurance companies are you dealing with and what kind of insurance do you have and what your deductible is. Learn more about what to do after an accident by watching our video.

2. Why is it important to hire an attorney who specializes in personal injury?

It is important, especially in the personal injury arena, to choose someone who is experienced in that area because there are subtleties that you are just not going to know unless you do this work every day and you understand the ins and outs, you understand the parties and you understand the motivations of everyone in a case like this.

3. How do personal injury attorneys charge/what are their fees? How much does it cost to get a lawyer?

Most plaintiffs personal injury attorney work on contingency. It doesn't cost you any money during your case; you only pay money if we are able to recover for it. When we take a personal injury case, the typical percentages range from 33 1/3% to 40%. Sometimes they go as high as 45% if it is a difficult case or a case that has to go all the way through trial.

4. Should I talk to the insurance adjuster? Do I have to talk to the insurance company?

There is no benefit in talking to the insurance adjuster from the other side. They are trained to drive down the value of the case by taking advantage of the fact that you might be unrepresented early.

5. How will I pay my medical bills?

If you were injured in a car accident, one of the most important first steps is to seek immediate medical care. Medical treatment for any injury can be expensive—leaving you with a stack of mounting medical bills to deal with. Unfortunately, the insurance company for the negligent driver will most likely not pay your ongoing medical bills while it is investigating and disputing your claim. Here, we discuss how to handle paying your medical bills while you are attempting to settle your claim. Learn more.
