Help with Personal Injury Claims from Seasoned San Diego Civil Attorneys

If you have been injured in a car or truck accident, harmed by a doctor’s medical negligence, or hurt by a defective product or a slip and fall on somebody’s dangerous property, the law allows you to recover compensation from the responsible party for your legal damages. These damages can include all of your medical bills now and into the future, any income you have lost or will lose because of the injury, and your pain and suffering and emotional distress caused by the other party’s negligence. To actually get the money you are owed, however, requires negotiating a settlement with the insurance company or taking your case to court if an appropriate settlement cannot be reached. There, the burden is on you to prove that you injured by another’s negligence. We can help with that. At Banker’s Hill Law Firm, our attorneys know the law, and we know how much your claim is worth. We will work to negotiate a settlement that fully compensates you for all aspects of your injury, and if a settlement is not forthcoming, our lawyers have the trial skills and experience to take your case all the way to a jury verdict or court judgment in your favor.

Our personal injury attorneys handle cases throughout San Diego County involving a wide variety of injuries in a number of different settings, including all of the following:

  • Automobile Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Products Liability
  • Premises Liability
  • Wrongful Death


Automobile Accidents

You may not have noticed (or maybe you have), but you are surrounded by thousands and thousands of cars on the highway every day in San Diego traffic. Unfortunately, the average person will be involved in more than one traffic accident during their lifetime. Hopefully, if you are in a car, truck or motorcycle accident you will not be seriously injured, but if you are, you need to be fully compensated by the negligent driver to help you move forward from your injuries. California’s low mandatory insurance limits are rarely sufficient to cover the costs of a serious accident, and many drivers don’t carry insurance at all. We investigate the accident and fight to hold all responsible parties liable to you for your damages. Although you can’t always protect yourself from speeding, distracted driving, drunk drivers and fatigued cross-border trucking, you can find experienced and aggressive legal representation to hold negligent drivers accountable and get the compensation you need and deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, nurses and hospitals are required to treat you according to a certain standard of acceptable medical care. Medical mistakes can make you worse off than you were before your treatment, or even cause permanent disability or death. We hold doctors and hospitals accountable for surgical errors and other medical negligence, including misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, medication errors, and birth injuries. We understand how to gather and interpret medical evidence and present it to a judge or jury in a compelling, comprehensible manner.

Defective Products

Manufacturers can be held strictly liable when they create defective products that injure a consumer. Sometimes a lawsuit is the only way to get companies to change their behavior and put consumer safety ahead of their bottom line. We utilize all our skills and resources to stand up to the giant corporations and hold them accountable for product defects including design defects, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn defects.

Premises Liability

We hold property owners liable when they neglect to clean up a spill or leave an object on the floor for somebody to trip over. Slip and fall cases can be difficult to win, but we know what it takes to prove that a property owner neglected a dangerous condition for an unreasonable period of time. In addition, we hold pet owners liable for dog bites or animal attacks, even where the owner did not previously know the dog was dangerous or was not especially negligent in keeping the animal. Our premises liability attorneys also hold property owners liable when their lack of reasonable security measures allows an innocent person to be robbed or assaulted on their premises.

Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one because of the negligence of another, of course no amount of money can make up for their death, but neither should you be burdened with financial hardship because of this loss. We help you obtain the compensation needed to cover funeral and burial expenses and medical bills, and to make up for the loss of income, services and support the deceased would have provided to your family. In addition, we seek an amount of compensation to make up for the loss of companionship of a spouse, or the loss of guidance of a parent, which can so keenly be felt for years to come. California law recognizes the right to hold wrongdoers accountable to the people they have wronged through a claim for money damages. Let us help you get through this difficult process.
