What makes a great personal injury law firm? For starters, a meticulous knowledge of California personal injury law, which lays the foundation for an aggressive and confident negotiation that’s firmly based on precedent. From there, a compassionate approach to client relationships that helps you feel like your case is in the expert hands of an attorney who truly cares about the result of your case.
Not sure if your prospective case falls under the umbrella of “personal injury” under California law? Chances are, it does. Here are just a few of the more common types of personal injury cases we see every month:
Personal injury court is an intimidating and complex process to try and navigate on your own. With the help of Agemian Law Group's expert guidance and aggressive style, you can recover financial damages for physical and mental injury, plus loss of work/earning potential (and more). When dealing with insurance companies regarding Personal Injury Protection (PIP), most people get taken advantage of without realizing it. Unfortunately, there are entire departments at major insurance companies dedicated to ensuring that they pay the absolute minimum they can get away with in the aftermath of of a claim that involved injury. At Agemian Law Group, it's our job to fight back on your behalf -- to know the ins and outs of the California legal system to ensure that you get more than a fair shake at the justice system. We take these cases personally -- you deserve every penny possible to recover from the insurance company or any other entity that is liable for you or a loved one's injury.
We’re sure you have questions -- in fact, you may never have thought that you’d need the help of an attorney before your accident or incident occurred. Agemian Law Group is here to help you make sense of what’s next.
Most personal injury claims, at their core, are negotiations. Since the vast majority of personal injury cases never actually make it to a courtroom trial, settlement negotiations form the crux of your lawsuit. Keep in mind, the insurance company has a high-powered attorney on their end who is being paid to withhold as much money from you as possible. That’s why you need Agemian Law Group on your side, to meet that challenge head-on and ensure that you’re paid what you’re rightfully entitled to.
Yes. Trying to navigate the complexities of a personal injury lawsuit, while being met on the “legal battlefield” by a highly experienced attorney on the other side of the negotiating table, is a recipe for disaster. And what’s worse, once you’ve tried to go it on your own, you’re typically locked out of coming back to try again later on with an attorney by your side. You’ve got to get it right the first time, and that’s why you need the aggressive tactics and detailed eye of Agemian Law Group.
Settlements are enforced at the end of the proceedings via a settlement draft (check) in a lump sum. After applicable fees to your attorneys or medical providers, etc, the lion’s share of your settlement is yours and available to deposit as soon as the check is in your hands.
Every case is unique, and you can find special instances or outliers for just about any situation -- but generally speaking, statistics show that personal injury settlements typically span between $3,000 and $75,000, with most ending up around the $50,000 range.
Great question. To make sure your settlement is as high as it can possibly be, you need to make sure that you’re represented by a highly competent, experienced attorney like you’ll get at Agemian Law Group. The more an attorney can focus on your case and be emotionally invested in the outcome, the better off you’ll be. Small to mid-sized law firms typically excel at this, compared with gigantic corporate law groups where you’re just another Google Drive folder on someone’s computer.
Most people who have never been involved in a personal injury dispute might think that your legal fight is directly against the individual, company, or facility that caused your accident. But in reality, the majority of the time your fight will actually be with an insurance company. And unfortunately, insurance companies are quite good at manipulating your initial responses and communications in such a way that they minimize their settlement offer.
This is why it’s critical that you leave the insurance company communication to your attorney - a legal professional who is well-versed in this area of California law, who has completed dozens (if not hundreds) of these negotiations before, with a favorable outcome. You should never answer any questions without input from your attorney, because the insurance company’s entire goal is to minimize the amount owed to you -- the person who was injured.
OK, so now you know why it’s so important to retain legal representation ASAP after your accident. But how do you know which attorney to turn to? What makes Agemian Law Group the right firm to advocate on your behalf? Consider the following:
We know California personal injury law like the back of our hand. We fight aggressively for each and every client we take on, and we consider our clients family forever.
When you’re represented by a giant corporate law firm, it can feel like they’re doing you a favor just by returning your calls. Not at Agemian Law Group. We are fiercely protective of your rights and emotionally invested in your case. With us, you are a VIP from Day 1.

On top of everything else, let’s face it -- you’ve just experienced a traumatic event that left you seriously injured.

You deserve to have time to yourself, so you can recover and focus on what’s truly important.
