Personal Injury

If you or someone you love suffered a catastrophic injury or was killed by a careless act, you will need an experienced trial lawyer on your side who will not back down or be intimidated by the aggressive tactics of insurance companies and their defense lawyers.

With more than 20 years of experience, Ted Swanson has tried over 120 cases in California courts—many more than most attorneys. This wealth of experience impacts every aspect of his practice and leads to better results for his clients.

The Resolute Trials Difference

Mr. Swanson understands exactly what is required at trial and does not get bogged down in needless discovery disputes or other distractions. Understanding the subtleties and contours of a trial, he recognizes the important theories of the case, quickly assesses its strengths and weaknesses, identifies witnesses that may prove critical, and narrows his discovery plan to obtaining evidence that a jury will rely on in its verdict. This leads to a streamlined approach that is laser-focused on the end result: winning at trial.

Individuals who are injured by third parties often assume insurance companies will act in their interest and offer a settlement for what their case is worth. This is not true. In fact, insurance companies make money by paying as little as they can in settlements to their clients. This is why you need a trial attorney.

Insurance companies track which lawyers try cases, and can tell how experienced a lawyer is through that attorney’s preparation. When the insurance company sees that your attorney is preparing to try a case, it changes its strategy to account for the possibility of a large verdict. The threat of losing at trial can convince a party to make a substantially better settlement offer.

Whether obtaining a large verdict or a favorable settlement due to his preparation of your case for trial, Mr. Swanson’s hands-on approach and vast experience ensures that he will maximize your recovery.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Due to the unique nature of his practice, Attorney Swanson must be highly selective about the personal injury cases he accepts. He is personally involved in every aspect of a case, and his attention to detail is second to none. Because Mr. Swanson only represents a small handful of highly selected clients, he cannot afford to lose.

Attorney Swanson’s specialized practice is devoted to seeking justice for people who suffered catastrophic injuries and the families of loved ones who were killed by another’s bad act. Resolute Trials only accepts high-exposure claims that have a high likelihood of going to trial.

Wrongful Death

Family members of someone who was killed by the negligence, carelessness, or intentional wrongful act of someone else can file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking compensation for the loss of a loved one. A wrongful death lawsuit is filed in the name of the estate representative and seeks compensation for:

  • Economic and non-economic losses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost income
  • The pain and suffering experienced by the decedent
  • Compensation for the loss of companionship and services of the decedent

Automobile Accidents

Whether in a truck, car, or other vehicle, a serious accident can result in broken bones, amputations, injuries to the head, neck or spine, brain damage, severe organ damage, or even death. Many result in paralysis or other permanent injuries. Because these cases result in substantial verdicts, they are often vigorously contested. Sometimes, the only way to achieve a full measure of justice is by taking the case to trial.

Dog Bites

A dog attack can cause massive physical injuries, permanent scarring, and long-term psychological damage. Nonetheless, some insurance companies refuse to take dog bite injury claims seriously. When a dog attack causes catastrophic, permanent injuries, you need a veteran trial lawyer on your side who will stop at nothing to obtain justice.

Premises Liability

Premises liability is the area of the law that deals with a property owner’s responsibilities to their guests. Whether your injuries were the result of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, inadequate security that led to an assault or robbery, or a swimming pool accident, your family deserves justice. Resolute Trials will evaluate your case and help you obtain the compensation your family deserves.

Products Liability

When defective products cause injuries, manufacturers and sellers should be held accountable. But seeking justice after a defective product caused a serious injury can be costly, time-consuming, and complicated. To win your case, you need an experienced trial lawyer who will anticipate the unique issues presented in a California products liability matter and understands how to overcome them.
