Of the hundreds of personal injury lawyers in the Central Valley, why should I choose the Rodney C. Haron law group?
At the Rodney C. Haron law group, we differentiate ourselves from our many colleagues in the Valley in a number of ways. In addition to staying abreast of the latest scientific research in accident reconstruction and legal precedents, we are passionate about serving the people who have placed their trust with us during what is undoubtedly one of the most difficult times of their lives. It is often said that a lawyer is an expert in nothing – and at the same time, in everything. With access to a cadre of experts, highly regarded by the courts and specifically chosen for their impeccable credentials in vehicle accident and other personal injury cases, we are able to assemble a team to fight for our clients like no other law firm can.And insurance companies know this. They know our reputation. They know we refuse to be intimidated and will outwork them in support of our clients.Most importantly, we pride ourselves on our ability to take fewer cases in order to provide an unparalleled level of attention and care on those that we do take.
How much does a case like mine cost?
While every case is different, we work on a contingency basis, which protects our clients from tactics deployed by the insurance companies who seek to bury the victim in expenses in an attempt to reach a fast, often unjust settlement.To counteract this strategy, you only pay if we win. And here’s the good news: that’s exactly what we do, having received compensatory settlements and judgments in XX% of our cases during more than 35 years of practice.
In these cases, our contingency fee is traditionally a fixed rate of 33% of the final settlement.
Should I Settle My Case or Go To Court?
As your legal representation, we provide the appropriate advise based on the merits of your case. It is important to note, however, that many law firms are reluctant to force insurance companies to trial. The Rodney C. Haron law firm is not. We will aggressively pursue compensation and settlement that is fair and just. But we will never be intimidated by insurance companies.
Because insurance companies are well aware of our reputation, we resolve 97% of personal injury claims without going to trial, saving our clients money while enabling them to move on with their lives as soon as possible.
The insurance company wants me to see their doctor, what should I do?
This is a common tactic used by the insurance companies. It is perfectly legal, but you need to understand your rights. With 40 years of experience handling personal injury cases, the Rodney C. Haron law group knows how critical the insurance exam is to your case.
As a result, we send a certified and trained nurse to each exam to observe and record everything. Specific legal guidelines have been established to which these exams must adhere, and our medical representatives are there with you to challenge inappropriate questions, inappropriate tests and protect your rights – and the integrity of your case.
How Long Until My Case Is Resolved?
Depending on the circumstances involved, the severity of your injuries and the insurance companies with whom we are negotiating, a case can be resolved in as little as a few weeks or they can last significantly longer. What’s important to understand is that we will not rush any case to conclusion until you are completely satisfied with the result.
The insurance company suggests I work directly with them to settle the case as soon as possible.
The insurance company cares about one thing and one thing only: shareholder value. They make money and grow their bottom line by reducing as much as possible the amount paid out to personal injury victims.
They do not care that their victims are honest people looking for a fair and equitable settlement. Please remember this when contemplating working directly with an insurance company.
Is someone always to blame in an accident?
It’s important to be clear: accidents happen everyday and, in many instances, are not the result of negligence or wrongful behavior. The problem is that insurance companies refer to accidents all the time in an effort to deflect responsibility from their client.
If you are hurt due to no fault of your own, it is not an accident, it is a crash – and you deserve and are entitled to fair compensation for the damages and suffering experienced.
Why do I need a personal injury attorney?
Personal injury cases can simultaneously seem both straightforward and immensely complex. Because of this, those who have suffered a personal injury require a specialist. Just as you turn to a doctor to address a medical condition, you need an experienced and aggressive attorney to protect your rights when you are involved in a crash or have any other type of claim.
