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.
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.

- Liz G.
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.
- American AF
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

How will the insurance company evaluate my San Diego car accident claim?July 30th, 2020
By Omid Rejali, Esq.
Insurance companies use a system to evaluate claims. This system is based on the data that is inputed into it. Once the data is inputed into the system it give the insurance adjuster claim evaluator a range of which what your case may be worth.
Here are some factors that the system takes into account:
The extent of the injuries (whether they are life long such as if you have been limited to a wheelchair or if you have had a broken bone).
The type of injury (Spinal injuries vs. Brain injury).
Attorney handling the claim and the firms reputation on going to trial (this is an important factor***
The venue where the incident took place (San Diego versus Los Angles)
Did you receive treatment right away
Any previous claims
Prior similar injuries to the same body part as you are claiming injury to in this claim
Their insured potential exposure should the case go to trial
These are only some of the factors that go into how the insurance company adjusters evaluate your case. As you can see there are many variables. Amongst the one's that we see being argued most of the time by insurance company representatives to not pay full value for your claim are: 1) your injury was pre-existing and 2) you did not seek treatment for your injury right away.
Of course both of these arguments are bogus arguments. The facts that your injury is pre-existing although relevant is not a deal breaker. This is because even if you had a pre-existing injury and that injury got worse as a result of the current San Diego car accident, then you would still be entitled to recover damages for the harms you suffered.
There are many reasons why a you may not have sought treatment for your injuries right away. It could be that you did not have health insurance and you did not want to have to pay out of pocket; or initially you thought that the pain would go away on its own, but unfortunately it did not and so you chose to go to the doctor.
These are some of the factors insurance companies take into account to evaluate you San Diego car accident case. It is never a good idea to try to settle your case with the insurance company on your own. I am happy to evaluate your case and give you my opinion. If you need to talk to me, you can reach me by texting 619-485-6313 or calling 619-887-4148 or by filling out our form here and I will get back with you.

Why does a lawsuit need to be filed in my San Diego car accident case?July 29th, 2020
By Omid Rejali, Esq.
There are many reasons why a lawsuit may need to be filed in your San Diego accident case. Here are some of the most common reasons.
1) The insurance company is refusing to accept responsibility
One of the most common reasons why you may need to file a lawsuit is because the insurance company is denying to accept responsibility. This is the most frustrating thing we see in our client's cases. Insurance companies are in the business in denying claims. The longer they drag a case out, the more money they make on the money that they have already had to set aside. Unfortunately, this is a tactic they use to force you to file a lawsuit.
2) The insurance company is not offering what you or your attorney think is fair
Many times insurance companies come up with excuses for not wanting to pay full value for your injuries. For example, they will try to pay for some of the medical bills necessitated our of the car accident, but not want to pay for some of the other ones. When this happens they usually argue that the medical treatment that you received was not "reasonable or necessary." On top of that even if they do accept the medical bills they want to get a discount on the amount of the bills that you owe to your doctors and they caused. Issues such as this lead to a standstill in the negotiation process and can lead to your attorney recommending filing a lawsuit.
3) You believe that the value of your case is worth more than the insurance company is offering you
We see this a lot. Clients coming to us from other firms wanting us to review their case to see if they are getting full value for their injuries. If you suspect that this is happening it is always a good idea to consult with other San Diego personal injury lawyers to see if you are getting the full value for you car accident case.
There they are. These are some of the reasons why a lawsuit needs to be filed.

What is a medical lien?July 23rd, 2020
By Omid Rejali Esq.
A medical lien is a contract.
Many times we have clients who either do not have health insurance; don't have the best health insurance or for a variety of other reasons do not want to use their own health insurance when they are involved in a San Diego car accident.
When faced with situations such as the ones mentioned we can provide our clients with options to treat with the best health care providers without having to pay any money upfront. These doctors are willing to treat the client, but will have a lien on the case.
What that means is that, once the case is settled either through mediation (I will discuss this in a different blog) or trial, the doctors will then collect their fee for the services they have provided.
So, there it is. A lien put simply is nothing more than a contract between you and the health care provider who has cared for you to be able to get paid for the services rendered at some time in the future.
Hope this information helps you.
We are always here to help or answer any questions you may have.
