Types of Serious Personal Injury Cases We Handle

At, our top-rated Vallejo personal injury lawyers only handle traumatic accident cases. Serious injuries and damages from these types of personal injury claims may have occurred as a result of the following:

Vallejo Residents Seeking Established Legal Representation

When Vallejo clients come and see us at our Sacramento office, we need to find the best personal injury attorney possible. They need someone with the resources and experience to obtain a fair and just recovery from their serious injuries.

We take on cases involving severe personal injury or wrongful death. If your claim does not involve serious injuries, we will likely refer you to an accident attorney to help with more minor cases. We've been handling severe personal injury and wrongful death cases exclusively since 1982. We've worked long and hard to build a strong and established law firm.

How to Choose a Top-Rated Personal Injury Lawyer

You've likely come here because you have been seriously hurt in an accident. Maybe you don't know any personal injury attorneys. Choosing a top personal injury lawyer in Vallejo for your case can be challenging, especially when experiencing pain from accident injuries.

There are many accident attorneys to choose from. Even if you decide to not choose us, here are some things you should consider:

Choose the best personal injury attorney in Vallejo who does not dabble in multiple areas of law. You want to select someone that practices personal injury law exclusively. It doesn't make sense to have your serious injury case handled by someone who handles family law cases, bankruptcies, or employment issues. 

You want someone with solid personal injury experience who has worked exclusively in that field for many years. You are looking for experienced representation, not someone who is a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. Besides, you wouldn't go to the mechanic to also have your haircut, would you?

Make sure the personal injury lawyer you select handles only personal injury and has a solid and lengthy track record of taking cases to trial if necessary. Sadly, some attorneys have never been inside a courtroom and prefer to settle all claims out of court. What if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement? You don't want to be forced to accept a low offer.
The lawyer you choose to handle your serious injury case must also have years of trial experience and, just as important the ability to properly prepare a case for trial, which can typically cost as much as $150,000. Does the attorney you are considering have trial experience and financial resources? Look at their office, its furnishings, etc. Be sure you select an attorney with trial experience and a long history of high verdicts and case settlements.

Our Vallejo personal injury law firm has the trial experience and financial resources to take your case to trial if that becomes necessary.

Handling Personal Injury Cases on a Contingency Fee Basis

Our personal injury law firm will handle your accident case on a contingency fee basis. Under a contingency fee agreement, our injury lawyers will not get paid unless we recover fair financial compensation in your case.

Working for you and your family is our philosophy. Your energy should be focused on getting well because your recovery is essential. While medical teams are helping to restore you to the condition you were in before the accident, our law office will work together to get you the best possible outcome you and your family deserve. 

Our personal injury attorneys will take the time to get to know you and your family members very well. We need to know your background, your dreams, and your struggles. This way, our legal team can better present your case to the insurance company or jury. Nothing inspires us more than helping Vallejo residents and their families find the positives in what could have been a financial, medical, and emotional disaster.

Vallejo Personal Injury FAQ

What if my accident involved a drunk driver?

Anybody who causes a collision while operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs is negligent. However, this alone offers little comfort to someone who has suffered trauma or lost someone close to them in an alcohol-related traffic accident. The motorist convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is responsible for paying you for all your damages. Our personal injury lawyers help people hurt in motor vehicle accidents caused by drunk drivers.

Can I still recover damages in a hit-and-run accident?

After a hit and run accident in Vallejo, you may recover compensation for your injuries and damages if you have uninsured motorist coverage. This auto insurance coverage is optional, typically offered by your car insurance carrier. If you are involved in a Vallejo hit and run accident or in a crash with a driver who does not have bodily injury liability coverage, then damages can be paid to you under your uninsured motorist coverage.
