Vallejo Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer
We have been called the “personal” personal injury lawyers, because we genuinely care about getting your life back on track after an accident to focus on what matters most, your family, and your future.
I understand how physical pain and suffering, brought about by a traumatic event, can turn your world upside down. I understand the pain, anxiety, grief and financial stress associated with being injured in a motor vehicle or other serious personal injury accident.Serving the Vallejo Community
Vallejo is the largest city in Solano County. This waterfront city is located in the northern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Perhaps you are wondering why I handle personal injury accident claims from my law firm in Sacramento. With the sinking economy of the past decade, many good law firms were forced to move out of Vallejo. This leaves Vallejo with a limited number of established law firms which can properly take on cases involving serious personal injuries and wrongful deaths.Types of Serious Personal Injury Cases We Handle
At AutoAccident.com, our 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:
- Bicycle Accidents
- Car Crashes
- Dog Bite Cases
- Farming Accidents
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Product Liability
- Truck Accidents
- Wrongful Death
When Vallejo clients come and see me at my Sacramento office, it is out of a need to find the best personal injury attorney possible. They need someone with the resources and experience to obtain a fair and just recovery for their serious injuries.
I take on cases involving serious personal injury or wrongful death. If your case does not involve serious injuries, I will likely refer you to an attorney who can help with smaller cases. I’ve been handling serious personal injury and wrongful death cases exclusively since 1982. I’ve worked long and hard to build a strong and established law firm.Drunk Driving Accidents Resulting in Injuries?
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 you are experiencing pain from your accident injuries.
There are many accident attorneys to choose from. Even if you decide to not choose me, here are some things you should consider:
Choose a 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 also handles family law cases, bankruptcies or employment issues. You want someone with a 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 on the inside of a courtroom and prefer to settle all cases 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 his or her office, its furnishings, etc. Be sure you select an attorney with trial experience and a long history of high verdicts and case settlements.
My law office has the trial experience and financial resources that it takes to bring your case to trial if that becomes necessary.

Our Vallejo 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.
My philosophy is I work for you and your family. I want your energy focused on the task of getting well. Your recovery and rehabilitation are of paramount importance to me. While medical teams are helping to restore you to the condition you were in before the accident, my staff and I are working together to get you the best possible outcome you and your family deserve. I will be taking the time to get to know you and your family members very well. I need to know your background, your dreams, and your struggles. This way I can better present your case to the insurance company or jury. Nothing inspires me more than helping injured victims, and their families find the positives in what could have been a financial, medical and emotional disaster.Vallejo FAQWhere are the most dangerous intersections for traffic crashes in the City of Vallejo?
