Serious & Critical Accident Claims
Unlike many internet or Yellow Page advertised offices located outside the Coachella Valley; our office settled over 2,800 serious injury claims exceeding $30 Million Dollars through referrals from prior clients, since 1975.
Over these past 43 years, we specialized in handling catastrophic injury claims requiring aggressive legal and trial management. Because of the high dollar amounts, insurance companies assign those files to their toughest claims agents and attorneys. With much higher stakes, Joel is associated with California’s best trial lawyers and able to spend whatever it takes to guarantee a positive outcome. A 98% success rate of settlements and 100% success rate in trials reflects a long history of success of his clients.

“I have known Attorney Joel Johnson for forty years. I first met Joel while working as a Litigation Specialist for a major insurance company. Joel was representing his client on a liability claim. From the start, I found Joel to be a formidable attorney who represented his client with professionalism, intelligence, and a deep understanding of the law and the facts of the case. After settling the case with Joel, I remember telling a co-worker “I just wrapped up a case with an attorney who I would use if I ever needed one”. In later years I referred family and friends to Joel for legal assistance, and all were very happy with the results. Later in my career as an Insurance Executive, I hired Joel to represent our company as a subrogation attorney. Joel’s results were always stellar. I can without reservation recommend Joel to anyone looking for an attorney with high standards of hard work, legal knowledge, and personable demeanor.”
Joel Johnson’s father was blinded in an accident several months before he was born. While friends played in after-school sports and other activities, he took the streetcar each day to help his dad at the family gas station in St Paul, Minnesota. Experiences from his youth sensitized Joel to the many difficulties confronting disabled and injured persons.
When becoming an attorney he continued charitable efforts of helping others and affiliated with Dr. Richard Grossman, a prominent burn surgeon. Through that relationship, he was referred to families of critically injured children, who other lawyers had rejected and described as “hopeless cases”.
Refusing to accept defeat, Joel never gave up and managed to succeed with those impossible cases Over the years his law practice has thrived on aggressive claim handling and proud referrals from former clients.
