Settlement vs. Trial

Aggressive Advocacy in California Personal Injury Cases

Gavel, Balance and Money Experience, particularly trial experience, is an important consideration when choosing a personal injury lawyer. While most cases settle out of court, you and your attorney must be willing to fight to protect your right to full compensation. At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., our skilled team can help you get the compensation you deserve after an accident.

Over the years, we have built a nationwide reputation and an impressive record of verdicts and settlements in the field. If you have been injured in an accident or lost a loved one due to the negligent or wrongful acts of another, contact us today.

Personal Injury Settlements

When dealing with insurance adjusters, it is important to remember that their job is to resolve your case as inexpensively as possible. If they can get you to accept less than what you deserve, that is a victory for them. They will often offer a fast settlement in the hopes that you will agree before the full extent of your injuries is known. This is particularly true in catastrophic injury cases where the damage done to you will affect the rest of your life. Before accepting a settlement, you need to understand what your case is worth and what you will need to get on with the rest of your life.

Personal Injury Litigation

A settlement might not be reached for several reasons, including:

  • The insurance company is understating the severity of your injuries.
  • The offer does not properly account for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering
  • The insurer does not believe that you and your attorney are willing to go to trial.
  • The insurer is hoping you will accept a lower offer in order to receive financial compensation more quickly.

Personal injury litigation is generally slow. Courts schedule trials when they can, but the process can take many months. To protect your right to full compensation, you need a lawyer who has trial experience. You need someone to give you the honest advice and aggressive advocacy you deserve.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
