My dad is an 81 year-old man.......The first time Mark met dad he was at the VA pallotive hospice unit. His knowledge of the medical field and the law just impressed me a lot.

Side-Swipe (Hit) Vehicle Accidents

We just asked Mark if he would represent our case to take it on and handle everything for us. He really took the hard part out of dealing with the insurance companies, the personal injury, and really made it easy for us. There are no surprises when he is representing you and going through your case.

Freeway 94 Car Accident

I did not call him (Mark) right away thinking I could handle the process all on my own; I just started getting really stressed out. I was started to be afraid of driving, and getting anxiety. That is when I finally decided to call Mark. He met with me the very next day. He made me fell really comfortable.

When you've been injured in a serious accident in San Diego or the surrounding areas, you don't want just an attorney out of the phonebook, you need a nationally recognized San Diego accident attorney expert who not only understands San Diego injury law, but has the experience and resources to make a real difference in your injury claim. Mark Blane, and his San Diego accident legal team aren't like some of the other accident lawyers you may have met with or heard about on the radio or television. Our goal is to educate our clients and even those whose cases we don't take, so that you not only understand the legal process ahead of you but the basics of San Diego injury law and your legal rights. Since 1999, San Diego attorney Mark Blane and his team have been dedicated to protecting the legal rights of injury victims throughout California. They are committed to giving each case personal attention, compassion, and aggressive advocacy.
So what do my injured clients really want to know and understand?  

1.  What is the BIGGEST value on my specific injury case??? (You are not going to believe this!)

2.  Does a Computer Program worth millions of dollars really review my injury case, and NOT a human being??? (You are not going to believe this either!)

3.  How long will my injury case take to resolve? (Each injury case is unique!)

4. Mark, what do you mean my private health insurance plan is like a "glorified loan" that must be paid back at the time we settle my personal injury case?!?

What makes your injury law firm so different from all the other San Diego accident lawyers out there?

Mark Blane has been fighting for San Diego accident victims and has successfully resolved more than 3,500 cases since 1999, in either trial or pre-trial settlements, maximizing compensation for his injured clients. We have dedicated our practice to offering personal support to our clients which goes much further than a good knowledge of the local courts, federal and state regulations and past settlements. Our attorneys have dug deeply into the insurance companies' settlement practices and calculations, and into the detailed medical and financial consequences of serious injuries, including brain and spinal cord damage, and have aggressively fought for our client's rights for fair compensation.
Also, I meet each client personally. I do not send an associate member or paralegal to "sign up a client."  I have to meet everyone myself so I get to know them as a person first, and a client second. This is important, so I know who they are and how the injuries affect them and how they will come across as a witness for themselves.
