No fees unless we win

When you’re represented by the legal team at The Swanson Law Group, you will owe us no legal fees unless we win. Your initial, free consultation is private and confidential, and there is no obligation or pressure to use our legal services.

Your first meeting with our team

If we have scheduled an in-person meeting with you at our office, please bring as many of the following documents as you have available:

  • Photos of the accident
  • Photos of your injuries
  • Contact information of witnesses to the accident
  • Auto insurance information
  • Medical records related to your injuries
  • Police accident report
  • Pay stubs and W-2s to verify your employment. When we take on a case, we pursue lost wages, lost earning capacity, and other financial losses. Your income verification can help with this.

If you don’t have these documents, don’t worry. The most important thing to do is meet with our team as early as possible after the accident. The sooner we get involved in a personal injury case, the better it could be. Our early intervention makes it possible for us to interview witnesses before memories fade, gather critical evidence before it’s lost, investigate the scene of the accident, find existing video, and many other actions to support your claim or lawsuit.

California statute of limitations

The Statute of Limitations is the timeframe in which you have the right to file a lawsuit. This is a crucial point in personal injury claims and lawsuits. After this time has passed, you are forever barred from filing a claim or lawsuit except under very rare circumstances. The California statute of limitations allows two years from the time of the injury to file a lawsuit.

The risks of speaking to the insurance company

When another driver is at fault, that party’s insurance company will usually contact you. We must warn you: an insurance agent that sounds friendly and supportive has another goal. They want to get you to say something that could reduce the value of your settlement. In any case of serious injury, you need a lawyer to protect your right to the compensation you deserve.

Filing an insurance claim

Filing an insurance claim is a completely different matter. The insurance industry is regulated under the California Code of Regulations, Title 10, Chapter 4,  Fair Claims Settlement Practices. You will be required to file an insurance claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company.

We listen. We care. We act.

At your consultation, we will listen to what happened and how the injury accident has affected your life. We will let you know if we can be of service to you. The first step is reaching out to a law firm that you can trust to fight for your right to a fair and full compensation.
