From offices in Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara, our Los Angeles Area accident lawyers help accident victims in all of Southern, Central and Northern California including Los Angeles and Los Angeles County, Orange County, RIverside, and San Bernardino County.
When a person is injured due to someone else's negligence, that person is entitled to be compensated for all of his damages. However, insurance companies have attempted to poison the jury pool, claiming that most lawsuits are frivolous. A long history of success at trial, like AlderLaw's, is critical to getting insurance companies to pay attention to your claim and fully compensate you.
Unfortunately, one of the most important factors in whether the insurance company will treat you fairly and give you full value for your claim is how successful your lawyer has been in forcing insurance companies to "pay up" in the past.
AlderLaw has a proven track record of taking insurers and big business to trial and winning big verdicts. [Verdicts and Settlements]
Vehicle Accident Reconstruction
Understanding accident reconstruction (literally, a re-enactment, down to the tiniest detail, of the accident that caused your injury) is critical to properly representing the plaintiff in litigation and at trial. Insurance companies routinely hire the same "expert" witnesses to reconstruct accidents in the light most favorable to the defendant. Invariably, the defense "expert" analysis shows that the plaintiff is either completely or partially at fault for the accident.
Expert Case Development and Trial Work
AlderLaw maintains an extensive library of research on, and prior testimony from, most of the experts used by the insurance industry. This library, plus Mr. Alder's extensive personal experience with most of these witnesses in deposition and at trial, allows AlderLaw to vigorously cross-examine these experts and expose them as one-sided advocates for the defendant – not unbiased truth tellers, as they claim to be. At the same time, AlderLaw works hard to hire the best and the brightest engineers in the accident reconstruction field to show the jury what truly happened in the accident.
AlderLaw's superior technology is an important edge, and we often present animated recreations of the accident so the jury can see for themselves exactly what happened, and why the plaintiff's version of events is the correct one. Clear and easy to understand demonstrative evidence – such as animation, video, photographs or illustrations of the accident scene – goes a long way towards winning a trial.
AlderLaw Plaintiff's Attorneys; Experienced Legal Representation that Gets Results
Insurance companies ultimately respond best to one thing – the ability of the plaintiff's attorney to win at trial. AlderLaw has extensive experience in litigating personal injury cases of every kind throughout California and also in many other states, including Nevada, Arizona, and Louisiana.
Before you hire an attorney be sure to ask about their trial experience and if they have the financial resources to cover the costs of a trial. If the defendant refuses to pay what the victim deserves, and the victim is represented by AlderLaw, he or she will end up in trial.
In the last 12 months alone, AlderLaw has received 5 verdicts in personal injury lawsuits in excess of $1 million, including a $7.8 million verdict in December 2008. Our track record of large verdicts has also led to a record number of big settlements, because insurers and big business would often rather pay up front than take the risk associated with trial and endure the related publicity.
