Rejali Law Firm

San Diego Personal Injury Lawyer

Top 100 Motor Vehicle Verdict Award
Rated by Superlawyer, Rising Star Badge

San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Omid Rejali

Our founding fathers envisioned the future that we are living in today. That’s why they included the 7th amendment right to jury trial in our constitution. They recognized that there are benefits in the capitalistic economic model, but also a need for a vehicle to hold those in power responsible for their wrongdoing.

I became a trial lawyer to remind the wrongdoers, that if you don’t look at us like human beings, created equal, the community as the conscious of humanity and what is right-will.

Attorney Omid Rejali

I endeavor to make my community a better, safer, more loving, and caring place through understanding, empathy and love for each and everyone of my clients. A jury trial in my mind is the only venue where we as humans can be seen as equals against a corporation, the government, and our employers. I look forward to having the opportunity to stand up for you.

  • Hired Omid Rejali to represent me in a complex fraud case (I was the plaintiff) He worked tirelessly and we won. He was efficient and caring the entire time. This was not an easy case at all and others would have charged an enormous amount of money to handle it . It went all the way through trial and we were victorious. A glorious day indeed. Omid Rejali wowed the jury in opening and closing arguments to get me justice!! Highly recommend. Dealt with other attorneys who only care about billing hours and creating unnecessary work. I will not use anybody else ever again.

  • Omid helped with a personal injury case when NO ONE else would because I was injured already for two years. He won FOUR times the amount what the insurance company offered me and fought hard for me. He is real and has heart. He even came for dinner one night to my house. I recommend him highly!!

How We Can Help

Heres how we can help you during the claim process and beyond.

Doctor Referrals

The law allows for an injured person to treat outside of its insurance, even if they did carry insurance during their accident. If for whatever reason, you cannot get to a doctor because of the difficulties with your own insurance, we are happy to help. Luckily, there are many doctors that are willing to help you without any money up front. They will however get paid for their services once your injury claim gets resolved.

Obtaining All the Relevant Records

Relevant documents are anything that can show your injury and how it has impacted your life. They include: 1) Medical Records; 2) Medical Bills; 3) W-2 wage statements; 4) Photographs; 5) Prior jury verdicts on similar injuries; 6) Video Recordings of your doctors testifying. And anything else that could help the other side put a value on the harm they have caused.

Meeting

Once you have completed treatment, or the doctors have provided you with a diagnosis and prognosis we will meet with you and an attorney will listen to make sure that all your medical needs have been taken care of. The more important reason for this meeting is to listen to you and to understand how the injuries have impacted your life. This meeting is crucial because it can help us better understand you so that we can better represent you.

Negotiation

The next step in the process is to try to negotiate with the insurance company in resolving your case prior to filing a lawsuit. Many factors come into play here. These factors can include the severity of your injuries; the impact they may have on your future earnings; the impact they may have on your enjoyment of life; the amount of your suffering; the amount of pain the injury causes and many more. We will negotiate on your behalf and will try to persuade the other side to be reasonable and to settle fairly.

Lawsuit

If negotiations do not resolve in a resolution of your matter, then we will proceed to filing a lawsuit on your behalf. Lawsuits can be a very frustrating process. However, we will be here for you every step of the way.

At Rejali Law Firm, we go the distance. We understand how important your health is and the impact that it can have on your life when it is taken away from you through no fault of your own. We also understand that the journey to Justice is not an easy one and are here to guide you through it all.

Mr. Rejali has won TOP 100 verdict in California and has a passion to hold wrongdoers accountable and make the insurance companies pay. He believes that he’s been placed on this earth to make it a better place and will make sure you obtain justice.

Why Your Attendance to Jury Duty In San Diego Is So Important During the Pandemic

November 12th, 2020

By Omid Rejali, Esq.

In San Diego and other parts of our state jury trials have been halted since March because of the Pandemic. Judges, attorneys, court staff and personnel are all getting used to the new normal.

Since the pandemic we have had criminal defendants not able to have their day in court. Under the law, all of us are presumed innocent until proven guilty and because of the pandemic, the courts have been unable to hold jury trials.

It has now been almost 9 months since the original stay at home orders back in March. Our courts have worked diligently to try to come up to date on cases, but they are still behind. Many of our litigants who had been waiting for years to have their day in court have had to wait longer than expected. Some of these people had already been waiting for 2 3 or 4 years. I have a case where my client has been waiting for over 5 years now.

Last month in October, the San Diego Superior Court reported that out of the approximately 900 juror summons that were sent out, only 40 people showed up.

I completely understand how difficult these times have been for all of us. Not having the ability to put your children in day care, working from home, many families losing their jobs and their health care. The uncertainty of it all has also impacted our mental health, as uncertainty breeds anxiety.

On the bright side however, we do know more and more about the virus than we did 9 months ago. And it looks like with a possible vaccine on the way, there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

I cannot express how important it is for all of us as a community to fulfill our time-honored duty to serve as a juror. We all need each other and, there are many civil litigants and criminal defendants that are suffering and anxious. They need our help to resolve their cases. We need to come together as human beings and begin the process of healing each other. The past 9 months have been awful to say the least. But our community needs us now. Criminal Defendants, and civil litigants who have chosen people like you and me to decide their fates have been waiting for a long time to have their day in court and for us to decide what is right and just.

Insurance companies have also began taking advantage of the situation and, those of us who need help the most. Prior to the pandemic, having the fear of a jury trial looming over their heads, they were acting more fairly and had an incentive to settle cases. Now, since they know that they can buy themselves more time, they have been taking advantage of the situation and, attempting to settle cases for much less than what they are worth. They also know that the clients are not in a good financial situation and, are more likely to accept a lower settlement.

This is all because they don't have the pressure of a jury trial on their backs.

Believe it or not, we have a lot of power and can make a huge difference by showing up to jury duty. Our presence, not only leads to a just outcome and result, but also, tells the big money corporation and insurance companies that we as the conscious of the community are going to decide how we want to live in our community, instead of them making those decisions.

Each one of us who attends jury duty during this time, is helping a fellow human being get closure to an injustice they have been facing for a long time. After closure, comes the healing process. And now more than ever we all need each other to heal.

Personal Injury Pandemic Scams and How to Overcome Them

November 5th, 2020

By Omid Rejali, Esq.

As Covid-19 ravages through our country, personal injury firms that work on what I like to call "turn and burn" model have become increasingly desperate to get cases. You may have noticed a substantial increase in personal injury advertising on your social media platforms like instagram and facebook.

Personal injury law firms with the "turn and burn" model need to have cases coming in as they settle cases that are going out. For example, if they settle 5 cases in one month, they would need to sign up at least 4 or 5 cases to be able to run their business. As you can see, this model can become all about the numbers and, not so much about you, the human being who has suffered a loss through no fault of their own.

The pandemic has hit these firms the hardest and so they have resorted to aggressive advertising campaigns, including misleading information to be able to get as many cases as they can. These advertisings may include statements such as millions and millions recovered or that they settled a case for $2 million dollars. Although, those statements may be true, you want to make sure that the firm that is advertising those results actually obtained those results.

Due to the pandemic, business slowed down for these "turn and burn" firms, and competition at the same time increased because now these firms could pick up cases in any part of the state or county by advertising there since businesses were not allowed to see clients in person and were conducting everything via various video platforms. And so, they began heavy advertising and I have seen many firms with few years experience claiming that they have recovered over $300,000,000. Again, although that may be true it behooves you to conduct further investigation to make sure that the firm itself has actually obtained those results, and is not using some other firms results as their own.

This is crucial because as part of the pandemic advertising from these firms, many of these firms won't even handle your case, they are merely a marketing vehicle to get the cases and will give your case to some other firm to work on, without you knowing.

With more and more people losing jobs and potentially not having health care as a result, it is extremely important to conduct your due diligence more than ever, before hiring your personal injury lawyer in San Diego or anywhere else for that matter.

Finally, it has also come to my attention that attorneys are taking high percentages from client's as a fee. Recently, I became aware of fees being charged as high as 45% for a simple case.

The market rate currently is 33 1/3 percent if your cases settles before a lawsuit is filed and 40% thereafter. Although, that is the case it is important to know that you have an absolute right under business and professions code 6147 & 6148 to negotiate that fee with your attorney. Do that before you sign a contract.

Thank you for reading my blog. I hope this information is helpful.

The No. 1 way Personal Injury Attorney Advertising can Mislead You & How to Protect Yourself From It.

October 29th, 2020

By Omid Rejali, Esq.

ATTORNEYS ADVERTISING THAT THEY HAVE RECOVERED MILLIONS WITHOUT PROVIDING ANY SPECIFIC DETAIL AS TO THE FACTS OR INJURIES OF THEIR CLIENTS; OR IF THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT A SINGLE RESULT NOT GIVING YOU FACTS ABOUT THE INJURY THEIR CLIENT HAD SUSTAINED.

With the advent of social media more than ever before you see advertising from personal injury attorneys showing the millions and millions of dollars that they have recovered for their clients, or advertising a single result that they obtained for a client.

The message of these advertisings is clear. Because we were able to obtain such a result for one client, we can get the same result for you. So, hire us! Plus you have nothing to lose because you don't pay us anything, unless we win!

The truth is, under the California ethics guidelines attorneys are not allowed to advertise any results without specifically mentioning that the result or outcome of the case is not a guarantee, warranty or prediction of any other outcome. Lately however I have not been seeing that in the recent advertising trends.

The next time you or anyone you know is in need of a personal injury attorney make sure that you do your due diligence before hiring them. Here are some suggestions.

1) Ask About the Attorney's Reputation in the Community or Look it up Online

Make sure that if you know an attorney to ask them if they know the reputation of the attorney that you will be hiring. Remember, the personal injury attorney that you hire can be extremely important to you because they can be the difference between an attorney who will settle your case early for a quick buck versus one that will fight till the end and will say NO to the insurance company until they pay you what is fair.

Another way you can look up the attorney's reputation is through avvo.com . Once there, you can see if the attorney has received any endorsements from other attorneys in the community. Although, this can be less reliable than asking around and doing your own research because the attorneys can have their friends write about them.

2) Have the Attorney You Are Hiring Explain to You Some of The Results They Boast About on Their Website

During your consultation make sure you ask the personal injury lawyer you are trying to hire about some of the results they have on their website to see if they can explain them to you. A personal injury attorney should be able to explain those results to you right away, especially if they are in the millions of dollars.

3) Ask the Attorney You Are Hiring if They have Trial Experience with Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury lawyers who have trial experience deeply care about their clients and do not back down until they get you what they believe is fair. You do not know the value of your case and that is the reason why you hire a personal injury lawyer. You want to make sure that the attorney knows you well, cares, and understands what the value of your case is and, is not looking to make a quick buck!

4) During Your Initial Consultation with the Attorney Ask About the Names of The Cases Advertised

During your initial consultation with the personal injury attorney ask about the names of the advertised results. Unless they are confidential, request that the information be provided to you. Once you have a name of the case, you can then search for that result online and verify that in fact that attorney or at least that firm was the primary firm responsible for that result.

You can search for verdicts on juryverdictalert.com. Once there, input the name of the case and you will see the names of the attorneys responsible for obtaining the result.

****It is important to make sure to make sure that the attorney you are hiring is the attorney primary responsible for the results they claim they have received. A lot of firms advertise that they are responsible for a certain verdict or result, when in fact they are not. What these firms do is they get you through the door and, afterwards funnel your case to a bigger firm to handle the case for you so that they can still collect a referral fee on your case.

It's important to go to the firm that will handle your case from start to finish, because many times these firms that funnel cases do an extremely poor job on working on your case during the litigation process, which can then have a devastating impact on the results of your case later on.

I hope this blog helps you.
