Brad Nakase, Attorney
We can agree that we would choose excellent health over money. Nevertheless, if we suffer personal injury by another person’s wrongdoing, we want to be fairly compensated for our medical bills, pain, and suffering. As a personal injury attorney San Diego community trusted since 2005, I will fight for you and ensure you’re fairly compensated. If Medi-Cal paid for your medical bills, I would assist you with a Medi-Cal lien under the California Personal Injury Program.
You may be able to recover lost income, healthcare costs, and payment for damages such as pain and suffering. Contact the best personal injury lawyers in California to find out what you are owed. I’ve successfully litigated over $100 million for my personal injury clients.
If you or a loved one have sustained injuries, please contact Brad for your personal injury attorney in San Diego. You need a lawyer that cares and wants to ensure that you get the best result.
Many people would say that they act with caution when doing dangerous things. However, there is danger in almost everything we do as we cannot control other people’s actions.

If you or your loved ones are injured in an accident caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, we invite you to call award-winning Brad Nakase as San Diego personal injury lawyer.

Our team of personal injury lawyers and experts are sympathetic to the emotional and physical pain one has when recovering from a devastating injury. We often see victims struggling to pay medical bills when they have lost wages while recovering. However, you do have the right to receive compensation for your injury.
Attorney Brad Nakase strongly believes that you should not have to pay for another party’s negligence. If they have caused your injury, they should pay for the costs of your recovery and ongoing medical care. Money can’t make everything as it was before, but we will bring the responsible party to justice. You should not have to worry about how you’re going to pay the medical bills or how long you are going to have to take off work. You deserve to recover free of financial stress, and our California personal injury lawyers want to help you do that.
Many people have financial worries following a devastating injury. It is normal to worry about paying medical bills and how to support your family if you are no longer able to work.
Getting compensation from the people that caused your injury is challenging. Insurance companies will be the ones who will contact you and try to compensate you for the damages. It is important to remember that insurance companies are businesses, and at the end of the day, they want to protect their profits. These insurance companies will act like they are on your side, but they will pay you the least amount possible in compensation so they can make more money.
Insurance companies are notorious for underpaying, denying, or delaying claims until the injured party just gives up. They will always be trying to figure out ways to justify paying less money.
Our team of personal injury lawyers in California have dealt with many insurance companies, and we know all their tricks. We can help advise you when speaking to them or talk to them on your behalf so that you are not tricked into a smaller settlement. When you work with us, we advise you not to speak to insurance companies as their calls are recorded, and they will use everything you say to undermine the extent of your injuries. Instead, we will look after all the negotiations and protect you from their shady tactics. We want to ensure you get the full compensation you are entitled to so you can recover.
What Kind Of Injuries Can I Claim Damages For?
In California, financial, emotional, and physical suffering is taken into account in personal injury cases. While medical costs and loss of wages are easy enough to put a number on, there are other effects that are unquantifiable. Playing with your kids, enjoying outdoor activities, loss of quality of life are all side effects of serious injuries that are hard to put a number on. The depression and lifestyle changes that a serious injury can bring often affects the whole family almost as much as it does the victim. Acute pain can often change a person’s personality until they are unrecognizable to their loved ones.
The law calls the damages which you cannot put a number on “non-economic damages.” Under California state law, victims in personal injury claims can seek compensation for non-economic damages as well as lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. Please note that the California Department of Health Care Services’ (DHCS) Personal Injury Program seeks reimbursement for services that Medi-Cal paid on behalf of its beneficiaries who are involved in personal injury actions, such as auto accidents, slip and falls, and premises liability.

What Money Can I Get In a Personal Injury Case?
Some of the damages that you can claim for are:
You are eligible to claim emotional distress if your injury results in a long term physical disorder. If you witness a loved one suffer a devastating injury or die, then you are eligible for emotional distress compensation.
Pain and Suffering
Our California personal injury attorneys can assist you in calculating a fair payment for pain and suffering you are experiencing and likely to experience in the future. After a devastating injury, life will not be the same again, and you are entitled to seek compensation for the ongoing pain and suffering you will experience.
Loss Enjoyment to Life
You may be entitled to money for the loss of enjoyment of life. Depending on the injury, it might prevent them from participating in their favorite hobbies or from going out. Also, if the injury changes the relationship between the victim and their loved one then they are eligible for these damages. Contact our personal injury lawyers at Nakase Law Firm to find out if you are eligible for these damages.
Loss of Consortium
This is compensation for your spouse or registered domestic partner. If the injury causes a loss of intimacy, assistance, love, care, or moral support, then your partner is eligible for compensation. If they have to become your carer rather than your partner, then these damages can be claimed.
What Other Damages Can I Claim?
In some cases, you can claim punitive damages. These are only awarded when malice, fraud, or oppression can be proved in the actions of the defendant. Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant and to stop them from repeating their behavior in the future. Contact the best personal injury lawyers in California to see if you are eligible for punitive damages.
If you lost someone you love and the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or illegal behavior, then you can claim a wrongful death claim. This will help you be compensated for the loss of income in your household and the emotional distress of losing a loved one.
