At the Law Office Rick Fine, our staff know that it's hard enough for you and your family to deal with your injuries after an accident. For instance, you may be coping with a catastrophic injury, such as severe burns, head and brain trauma, spinal cord damage or a back injury. You may be unable to work and struggling to pay bills, including the astronomical costs of medical care. The last thing you need is dealing with an insurance company that will solely be out to protect its profits. That's where we can help.
We know how to investigate and develop cases so that insurance companies will have the information they need to negotiate reasonably and honor a personal injury claim. This includes our work with highly qualified mechanical, engineering and medical experts at our disposal. Our experience includes representing clients in cases involving:
We are skilled and tough negotiators who will settle for nothing less than full compensation for your damages, such as: property damage, past and future medical expenses, past and future lost income, pain and suffering, and disfigurement.
Rick Fine's usual arrangement for cases of automobile injury or wrongful death is a contingent fee agreement. The Law Offices of Rick Fine can advance expenses/costs on the client's behalf and it is deducted from the gross settlement along with the contingency fee. These expenses include but are not limited to: attorneys' and investigators' work, interviewing witnesses and others involved in the case, expert witnesses such as physicians, highway design experts, safety equipment experts and others, deposition fees, acquiring medical and other records, all of which can amount to substantial expenditures. Rick Fine agrees to be paid only if the client's case is ultimately successful, either by settlement out of court or by a judgment following a court proceeding. Rick Fine then receives a percentage of the final amount recovered. This fee arrangement is helpful for most people with a serious motor vehicle injury or wrongful death case because it does not require the person bringing the case to pay any money up front.
If your auto accident injury occurred as the result of negligence or misconduct, a auto accident attorney may be able to achieve a settlement that will recover your medical and rehabilitation costs, both current and future. A settlement may also cover home modifications and future specialized care needs.
If you decide to pursue legal action, you should contact an experienced auto accident attorney as soon as possible for review of your situation. There are deadlines called statutes of limitation, which regulate the filing of lawsuits. If you or a loved one have suffered injuries from a car accident and feel that negligence or misconduct was involved, you should not delay in contacting an attorney. If the statute of limitations expires, your right to pursue a claim may be forever barred.
As attorneys, the information shared with the Law Offices of Rick Fine is legally protected by the attorney client privilege. As a result, all information will remain 100% completely confidential, even if you ultimately decide not to use our services. You can rest assured that with your information secure, it is in your best interest to provide all details related to your case so that we can best prepare and maximize your compensation.
While most states require vehicle owners to have automobile liability insurance, many drivers manage to get around the law. California is a "fault" car insurance state which means there are very few restrictions on the options of anyone injured in an accident, when it comes to pursuing an insurance claim or lawsuit against those who are legally at fault. You may require legal help in receiving the proper and complete compensation from your insurance companies when injured by an uninsured motorist. The Law Offices of Rick Fine are here to help.

An important consideration in choosing your counsel in an automotive injury or personal injury case is to find an attorney with whom you feel comfortable, have confidence in, and someone whom you can trust. In the majority of cases there will likely come a time when you must decide whether to resolve your case through settlement or take it to trial. At that point, your confidence and trust in your attorney will be vitally important. We strongly recommend you interview at least two or three highly competent plaintiff's lawyers and law firms before making your final decision. Rick Fine would be honored to be among those that you interview and would be honored to be the firm you select.
