 Testimonials

Thank you so much for all the work everyone contributed to bringing my case to a successful conclusion. I am truly grateful to everyone.

Stephanie C.

Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and always kept me up-to-date on what was going on with my case. Thank you Karns & Karns!

Most knowledgeable and helpful personal injury firm in town. The best.

James T.

I have used the lawyers at Karns & Karns on a number of legal matters over the years. Their skill and expertise is unmatched in my opinion. When my family was the victim of fraud, I turned to the lawyers at Karns & Karns. After a long litigation battle which eventually went to arbitration, I was awarded over $1,500,000.00. The lawyers at Karns & Karns were extremely prepared and I would recommend them to anyone.

John B.

I was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. Bill Karns was with me every step of the way. Even though the other driver said the accident was my fault, I recovered over $1,300,000.00. Mr. Karns was professional, courteous, and skilled. I would recommend him and Karns & Karns to anyone involved in a major personal injury case.

Hank E.

After a horrible incident and life-changing event, Mike and Bill brought hope back into my life.

Mona L.

I was traumatically injured on the job by a negligent forklift driver. I reached out to Karns & Karns when I began to suspect that my other attorneys didn’t have the expertise to resolve a complicated case where the defendant, a massive organization, said I was at fault. I’m certainly glad I did. Bill and Mike treated me with respect, knew the law, and did exactly what was necessary to make the defendant accept responsibility for their bad acts. I recovered $1,000,000.00, and I have Karns & Karns to thank for that.

Ed B.

I can personally attest to the fact that Karns & Karns are perhaps the most responsive attorneys in California. To receive the sort of attention that I got from Mike and Bill is noteworthy.

Nelson A.

My experience with Karns & Karns is that they truly care. As a disabled veteran, I can’t ask for any better than two top gun lawyers whose main job is to get the best for me and my well-being.

 FAQ About Personal Injury Cases

We are here to help answer your questions and give your family the support you need

I was just in a car accident. What should I do?

First, get to a safe place and assess if anyone is injured. Next, call police and ask for a police report to be completed. Finally, get medical attention as soon as possible, even if your accident seems “minor”.

The person who hit me doesn’t have insurance. What now?

State law requires all drivers to have at least minimum coverage. Check with your insurance carrier to see if your policy include uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. If not, talk to a lawyer right away.

What happens if I am partially at fault for an accident?

California observes a comparative fault rule. Generally speaking, if you are 50 percent or less at fault for your injuries you can still pursue compensation against the other responsible party.

DO I REALLY NEED A LAWYER TO FILE A GOVERNMENT CLAIM FOR ME?

A government claim against an at fault government entity or city employee is not like an insurance claim. There are complex processes and deadlines that must be done for you to pursue a lawsuit. Your best bet is to work with a lawyer who knows how this process works.

What are “damages”?

Damages is the legal term for what you have lost in the accident. Damages include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, etc.

Is there a time limit for filing a personal injury claim?

Yes. The time limit is called the statute of limitations. In California, most personal injury claims will fall under a two-year statute of limitations. That means you have two years from the date of the injury or death to file a lawsuit.

WHAT DOES A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY COST?

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means that you pay nothing up front for legal representation. Instead, you and your lawyer will agree to an amount (usually a percentage), and that amount will be deducted from the verdict or settlement amount the insurance company pays if your case is successful. If your case is not successful, then you owe the lawyer nothing.
