Car accident lawyers with over 30 years of trial experience. 

Finding the right lawyer is essential after a car accident. Any lawyer you hire must understand how insurance companies think. We do.

We used to work for insurance companies for almost 30 years. Make no mistake about it, insurance companies are in business to make money and to do that they try to spend as little as they can on settlements. Insurance companies are not interested in paying you unless you make them.

Personal Injury Attorneys

California law provides that a person injured in a car accident is entitled to compensation for damages. There are two types of losses. The first type is called “economic” losses. These include such things as medical bills and lost wages. The second type is called “non-economic” damages. These include pain and suffering. We help you recover both.

Medical Treatment

Victims of car accidents do not always have health insurance. The absence of coverage does not mean you do not have access to competent and credible medical treatment. Many qualified and skilled doctors will work on a lien. A lien is an agreement that means you promise to pay the doctor after you have settled your case.

Personal Injury Trial Lawyers

Although there are many personal injury lawyers, there are very few trial lawyers. And of those who have gone to trial, only a few belong to the American Board of Trial Advocates (“ABOTA”).

ABOTA is the pre-imminent group of trial lawyers in the United States. Each member of ABOTA must have a minimum of 20 jury trials. Less than one-half of one percent of practicing personal injury lawyers belong to this organization.
