Burney Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer

water fall

With a population of just over 3,000, Burney is a very cozy and comfortable place to call home. There are nearly six square miles of area to enjoy, but a small town also has limited resources, which means residents often drive to nearby places to shop, dine, and work.

The city's spectacular waterfall, Burney Falls, draws thousands of visitors each year to the area. Unfortunately, more traffic leads to an increased risk of accidents and injuries.

Types of Accident Cases We Handle

Aside from auto accidents, we also handle many different injury accident types, including:

Being Personal is Part of Working as a Personal Injury Lawyer

Recovering from an accident is not just physical but financial, mental, and emotional. We understand what our clients go through as they work toward their own recovery. We treat our clients like family, and we offer a holistic approach that you won't see with too many attorneys. As your Burney car accident lawyer, we'll focus on the kindness and compassion you need to fully recover from your injuries.

The video below will give you an idea of our holistic approach to personal injury law.

Your Advocate in a Wrongful Death Case

Losing someone you love to an accident or a fatal injury is extremely painful and can leave you feeling overwhelmed and confused. Even daily life tasks can seem too complicated, and it's hard to make decisions. 

With all that going on, trying to recover damages is just one more thing you have to deal with. A delicate situation is made worse, but you shouldn't have to deal with that. We work with people in those situations, and we want to help you. As your Burney auto accident attorney, we can focus on recovering damages while you focus on recovery in other areas of your life.

We Take Cases on a Contingency Fee Basis

You or your loved ones require solid legal representation to financially recover from your injuries. But paying for that representation upfront might not be possible or realistic. We work on contingency, which means you won't pay anything upfront. We only get paid when your case is successfully resolved. If we don't settle your claim in your favor, you won't owe us anything.

You Want the Right Attorney for Your Needs

Attorneys advertise everywhere. You see accident billboards, pop-up ads, and TV commercials. All the attorneys in your area are just waiting for you to contact them. But unfortunately, a lot of these attorneys don't really keep those advertised promises. They may list high success rates, but they don't necessarily do everything possible to get the most compensation for their clients.

Instead, that high success rate could mean settling plenty of cases, but not for as much as their client really should have received. We won't count your case as a success unless you get enough compensation to fully recover financially, emotionally, and physically.

We don't know if we're the right injury lawyer for your needs, but no matter which Burney auto accident attorney you decide to hire, you'll want to know what you should be looking for in your legal representation. That could keep you from making the wrong choice when you focus on what an attorney has to say and don't look at what that lawyer has actually done.

What to Look for in a Burney Personal Injury Lawyer

Here are some things to look for when selecting the best attorney to properly represent your case.

  • Know the Experience the Lawyer Has - Personal injury is a complicated area of the law, and the attorney you select needs experience in handling cases like yours. Without knowledge of arguing in court, they might not have what you need, and they won't be the right lawyer for your case.
  • Check Out the Verdicts and Settlements the Attorney Has Reached - Attorneys often make their verdicts and settlements available on their firm's website. If you don't see that from an attorney you're considering, there's no harm in asking for that information. You have a right to know what kind of success your lawyer has seen in the past.
  • Read Reviews of Attorneys to See What Past Clients Think - Reading attorney reviews is essential. Even though some reviews can be inaccurate or biased, many provide good information you can rely on when considering a particular attorney. Past clients often leave reviews about their experience, especially if that experience was negative.
  • Determine Whether an Attorney is Properly Established - You want a lawyer. You choose to be established and have the financial means to tackle significant cases. It can be costly to pursue a case, especially if it goes to trial. An attorney who can help you properly will be a lawyer with resources.
