Since we are a personal injury law office in San Diego, California, we only accept cases where the individual has sustained physical injury (meaning there was some treatment with a medical provider). This is because our attorney fee is a percentage of the recovery obtained on behalf of the injured claimant, and an injured claimant has special damages to pursue (such as pain and suffering damages). Most property damage claims cannot be pursued economically by an attorney where he or she is forced to charge you an hourly rate, which is often at least $150 per hour. Most insurance companies are reasonable when it comes to settling property damage claims which means you probably can settle your claim by yourself if you only sustained property damage loss.
