Since 1992, we at Vaage Law have lent a helping hand to injured individuals throughout San Diego, CA. Our San Diego personal injury attorney truly cares about the needs and well-being of the men and women we serve. To better assist our clients during their time of need, we have created this page of commonly asked questions for their convenience.

Why should I file an injury claim?
You should file an injury claim in order to obtain fair compensation for your injuries. Our firm can help you file a personalized claim so that you can pay for all injury-related costs, such as medical care, lost wages, property damage, and physical therapy.
The insurance company made me a settlement offer. Should I accept it?
We recommend that you don’t accept an initial settlement offer without first consulting with a lawyer. Insurance companies tend to offer low settlement amounts in order to close an accident matter as quickly and profit-friendly as possible. By retaining legal representation, you can feel at ease in knowing that we seek maximum compensation to cover all your injury-related costs.
How much compensation can I expect to receive?

It is hard to predict how much compensation you will be able to receive because it depends on so many factors, such as the severity of your injuries. However, hiring a lawyer to represent you increases the possibilities that you will obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to by law. 

What are your legal fees?
Our firm handles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means our clients don’t have to pay legal fees unless we recover compensation on their behalf. For more information about our contingency fee policy, please click here.
