What Clients Say:

“After being injured after deployment in a car accident hitting my bike in San Diego off Basilone Road, I can say without question, these are the best lawyers in the Oceanside area. My family and I love Michael Ehline and I refer them to other Marines in my old unit who ride.” – Ryan H.

“Most definitely, highly recommended. Definitively went to bat for me as a client after I was run over in a San Diego crosswalk in the Gas-lamp District. They under-promised and overdelivered. Alan was honest, and Jack was very helpful with setting up the annuity. They are skillful and smooth, and I felt respected as an equal. If I every get run over in San Diego again, I will hire them too.”  – Joe W.

“A really terrific law firm! Superlative, head and shoulders above the rest. I met Ehline at the USS Midway with his kids and wife. They were unassuming, nice people. We struck up a conversation and it turned out he served around the same time as my dad at the 52 Area. Years later I needed him for a collision. Ehline took the call instantly, and immediately took the case without missing a beat. We met for lunch, went over the case, talked about Camp Pendleton and Marines and six months later, I got a huge settlement offer. Ehline refused to take it and told me to trust him. By far, this was a great decision, netting me almost twice as much as the first insurance offer. I appreciate Mike and Kathy and how they took care of my property damage and everything else. Ehline gets it done for sure.” – Timothy G.

“Talented beyond belief, attentive staff for sure. What a pleasure is was having Irene constantly taking my calls as we set up the conservatorship after my son suffered a brain injury in an auto accident in Ocean Beach, California. The insurance company said it was our fault, but Ehline paid for experts and even came to the scene. Eventually he discovered witnesses who-came forward. The Ehline Firm defend my family and exonerated us, and then they swung a hammer and got more than enough to cover the injury and the expensive rehabilitation. Thank you James and Irene!” – Julia S.

“When I was t-boned, my car was wiped out so I was spending money taking the Ubers. It was crazy and I was unhappy. My friend said Ehline helped his mama and got her a bunch of cash so I did too and they fixed my car and even got me money for missing work from being laid up with a broke leg. Bomb lawyers and like pitbulls for that cash.” – Halsey B.

“These legal beagles are the true item folks. Make no mistake, Mr. Ehline is brilliant, with a steel trap mind. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, this is the only firm you want representing your family! These dudes have a USMC ethos and they are relentless personal injury warriors. Do or die dudes, 100% ooohrah!” – Ryan E.

“I’m totally thrilled over the logistical and personable support their team gave me. I don’t normally write reviews but wow, are they ever top guns. I was happy with results of my case and I recommend their legal services to everyone at work and in my family of course.” – Adam S.

“This organization is dedicated to total war against the insurance company. They are unrelently professional and dogged at every dealing with the adjusters. I fired my first lawyer who wanted me to take next to nothing. Ehline straight up handled this case like a boss and took it to mediation and nearly tripled the first joke of an offer. They were super humble and friendly. I felt totally represented and happy. These are the people who know how to handle your accident case right. I highly recommend them to all San Diegans.” – Bruce A.

“The Ehline Law staff were super nice to my dad and I. Alan was very professional and did not act like the lawyers on TV and San Diego billboards everywhere .. lol. Everything went smooth and eventually the bus company paid for my dad’s broken tibia and fibia. They did a super job at helping me get the settlement we needed for his surgery and after care.” – Chester N.

“Great team of dedicated servants who did far more than they did, making this smooth for me and my tiresome work schedule.” – Eric A.

“Highly professional law firm and I definitely recommend.” – Mike P.

“My lawyer, dedicated paralegal and legal secretaries were all top notch, attendant towards my wife and I, and clearly not arrogant. After firing my last attorney who never called me back I dealt directly with this team via text and emails. I never really called them, it was just knowing they were there that mattered. Best of the best” – Niles H.

“The Ehline Law Firm was able to obtain the medical lien doctors I needed to re start my life fresh. As Ehline promised UP FRONT, these lawyers were swift, silent, and deadly and had both insurance companies on the run. I am satisfied with both my property damage and bodily injury settlement after being run off the road by a drunken sailor.” – John Gomez.

Can You Get Financial Compensation for Your San Diego, CA Car Accident Injuries?

San Diego, California is a fault-based state, where the comparative negligence law ensures that the compensation awarded depends on the degree of each party’s fault in a case like this, including yours. If you’re 50% at fault in San Diego, CA, then your own insurance company will have to pay 50% of the damages to the other party while you can also recover some compensation for your loss.

San Diego, CA car crash cases fall under personal injury law (law of negligence) and the jury gets to decide the degree of fault of both parties assuming the liability insurance settlement process was fruitless and a deal could not be struck to amicably resolve your San Diego, CA motor vehicle accident case. Our car accident lawyers in San Diego will fight tirelessly to pin the fault 100% on the other drivers, or their bosses, etc. Call our venerable car accident law firm to learn more before putting your foot in your mouth and blowing your liability, or uninsured motorist coverage claim. It all starts with a free case evaluation, so you have nothing to lose.

Get More than Just Medical Bills with Our Attorneys

Typically, many lawyers in San Diego, CA will help you recover compensation for your medical bills. However, very few have the resources and experience to get maximum compensation for the damages done to you physically.

Oftentimes, the damages far exceed the bills that one incurs. There are other factors that one must account for to get a bigger picture of the extent of the damage. A vehicle accident can leave a victim without a job resulting in lost wages or causing emotional trauma leading to pain and suffering.

Our experienced auto accident attorney can help you get compensation for emotional trauma, bills, surgery costs, loss of enjoyment, loss of companionship, punitive damages, property damages, and more. We’ll advance costs to order the police report and see what the California Highway Patrol or San Diego PD has to say about the accident scene. We’ll also have investigators look at all car accident cases painstakingly, with a fine tooth comb, including extra sources of insurance coverage. (Ex: Did someone run a red light and flee the car collision scene?)

How Long Do You Have to File Claims in San Diego?

According to the statute of limitations, car accident victims in San Diego have two years following the auto accident to file for a personal injury car accident claim. After the two years period passes, the victim does not have the right to pursue any claims. This two-year period reduces to six months if a government agency or local municipality is the reason for the victim’s personal injury.

Although two years may seem like a long time, the claims process can take longer resulting in delays or even cancellation of claims. Unfortunately, insurers are in the business to make money, and delaying claims or canceling them means more profit for the organization.

You Don’t Want to Deal with the Insurance Companies

When you’re injured in an accident or lost someone to it, it may be heartbreaking and stressful to deal with the insurance company for compensation. Many are often tempted to take the first offer the insurance company gives them just to end all the interactions with the company, however, these are low settlements that won’t even cover your bills. This can put a financial strain on you affecting your recovery process after the accident. Remember, once you accept a settlement, you can’t ask for more.

Having our experienced law firm and car accident lawyers representing you is just the sort of legal support you need while you recover from your injuries. An insurer is more likely to cooperate if the accident victims bring on a reputable law firm to deal with their personal injury case against the other driver’s insurance or your own uninsured motorist insurance.

There are many law firms that you may consider choosing but having a law firm that specifically operates in San Diego is your best bet to getting fair compensation. Ehline Law has offices in more than 15 locations across California providing personalized legal services fulfilling every client’s injury attorney needs.
