The “Personal” Personal Injury Attorney

Hello and welcome to my website, www.AutoAccident.com. I’m Ed Smith, founder of this website and Thousand Oaks personal injury attorney. I have been through my fair share of serious personal injuries and can relate to the physical pain and emotional rollercoaster of feelings that my clients are experiencing. I am also familiar with how to deal with insurance companies. My staff works diligently with me to research the nature of your injuries and avenues for recovering compensation, and we remain in contact with you throughout your entire recovery process.

They call me the “personal” personal injury attorney because I take the time to sit down with each and every one of my clients.

Why Choose Me For Your Thousand Oaks Personal Injury Case?

As I mentioned earlier, there are plenty of personal injury attorneys to choose from in Thousand Oaks. Many of my past clients have expressed their confusion about selecting a personal injury attorney. All of them claim to be the best, of course. Most personal injury attorneys advertise that they will take cases on for free. Most personal injury law firms boast years of experience and tout that they will get the maximum compensation that you deserve for your injuries.

With everyone saying the same thing, it is difficult to discern which one out of all of the choices will be the right pick for your case. That is why I have come up with some pointers to help you find the right legal representation for your specific situation.

Many of the lawyers out here have experience in several different aspects of the law – family law, real estate law, criminal law, employment law, bankruptcy law, business law, immigration law, personal injury law, toxic tort law, and more. If you have been seriously injured by a negligent party, you don’t want to put all of your eggs in the basket of an attorney who spends most of their day writing legal business contracts, do you?

Finding the Right Attorney for Your Thousand Oaks Serious Personal Injury Case

Finding an attorney who solely practices personal injury law is in your best interest, because you need someone who knows how to research multiple avenues of compensation for your case, someone who has sharpened their skills, day after day, negotiating with insurance companies, and someone who will be an unstoppable force in the courtroom, if necessary. I know this stuff, because that is what I do.

I spend my entire day, every day, working tirelessly and fighting to get my seriously injured clients the maximum compensation for their injuries. Some days, I am on the phone, negotiating and fighting with insurance companies that refuse to make fair offers. Other days, I am in the courtroom, doing the same thing on a different playing field.

You also want to do your research on attorneys like you would research a potential doctor or another service or product you are planning to purchase. Look for an attorney who has excellent reviews on the internet via objective sites like Yelp, Avvo, and Google Plus. You can read what my past clients have said about me and my staff on Avvo, Google Plus, and Yelp.

While client reviews on those sites can be one way to research attorneys, you should also look for or ask about past verdicts and settlements to get a good idea what the attorney is capable of obtaining for your case. You will find out what types of cases the attorney has handled in the past by researching their past verdicts and settlements and you will also find out the compensation the attorney obtained for their clients.

Here are a few examples past verdicts and settlements my law firm has accomplished:

  • A motor vehicle collision victim who suffered injuries that were so severe that his ability to continue to work in his regular job was impacted received $4,100,000;
  • A victim on his motorcycle who collided with a cow and could no longer perform his work duties received $1,650,000.

Even if you do not think I am the right attorney for you, feel free to call me at (805) 372-0200 or toll free at (800) 404-5400. Ask for Ed. I will provide you free and friendly advice to help you find the right lawyer for your personal injury case.
