We work with the most specialized personal injury and auto accident lawyers in the San Mateo, Burlingame, Millbrae, Foster City and surrounding cities.
Why do you need a lawyer:

One of the most common injuries that arise from auto accidents is whiplash, or soft tissue injuries to the neck. The second most common injuries are low back pain. Since some of these injuries are low speed impacts, many insurance companies disregard these injuries and will attempt to settle for 'pennies on the dollar'. A classic example is Minor Impact Soft Tissue Injuries (MIST). These are typically soft tissue injuries resulting in low speed impacts with relatively little damage to the vehicle. Insurance Carriers 'segmented' these types of injuries from other injuries with the logic that if there was little property damage to the vehicle, then it is unlikely or impossible to cause significant or permanent injury. Therefore, these claims were denied or settled for far under what the victim deserved. Medically, we know that the research does not support this kind of thinking. There are so many factors that need to be taken into account in a car accident: what types of vehicles were involved ? How rigid were the frames on the cars involved ? What was the occupants position in the vehicle ? Was the seatback broken ? How far from the headrest was the head positioned ? These are but a few questions that your Doctor should be asking you. For example: Physics tells us that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. Once that body collides with another object, there is a transfer of energy. Depending on the Physics of the vehicles (types/rigidity), the occupant (patient) absorbs that energy during a collision. This is why one should seek a qualified Doctor with experience and expertise in these types of injuries in order to document these factors and explain why a low speed impact could cause significant injuries. Personal Injury attorneys can help recover damages such as lost wages, property damage, a proper settlement and Medical Treatment.

Recovery of your loss of earnings and any future losses. Reimbursement for your out of pocket expenses incurred.

What Is My Case Worth?

The value of each personal injury case and automobile accident case depends upon the severity of the injury; the permanency of the injury; the prognosis; the type of medical treatment received; the necessity of future medical treatment needed; current and future medical bills; the extent of the emotional trauma; and the length of time needed to heal. As auto accident and personal injury chiropractors we make sure your case will be documented properly to prevent any mishandling of cases.

Types of Car Accidents:

The types of automobile accidents that our car accident lawyers handle consist of, but are not limited to, rear end accidents, left turn collisions, going through stop signs, running red lights, speeding, out of control motor vehicles, drunk drivers, rollovers, unsafe lane changes, broadside collisions, and all other personal injury accidents.

No out of pocket fees for Medical Treatment:

In some cases, you may be entitled to treatment and legal representation without any out of pocket expenses. There may be certain cases in which our patients seek out the help of a skilled Personal Injury Lawyer to represent their rights and recover for damages. We may, at our discretion, accept a Medical Lien for services rendered. A Medical Lien is a binding legal document between your Doctor, Attorney and yourself in which your Medical Treatment costs may be deferred until your case is settled or resolved. Almost all Car Insurance carriers offer Medical Payment or 'Medpay' as past of their automobile insurance policies. Most people do have Medical coverage within their own insurance policies. Your auto medical coverage may also cover all of the passengers in your vehicle. Even if you are a passenger in another vehicle and you are involved in a car accident, the driver’s automobile medical coverage may also apply to you or you may be able to use your own automobile medical coverage if the driver does not carry any. Please note that all Automobile Insurance carriers may have different medical coverage policy limits, coverage limits and other limitations and it is important for you to contact your Insurance Broker or Insurance Carrier. In most cases, your automobile medical payment policy will pay the Doctor directly.

Legal Representation without up front Attorney's fees:

It is not uncommon to find that attorneys and lawyers charge $250-$500/hour for representation. We can refer you to an attorney that works on a contingency basis. That is, you don't pay any fees until your case settles. In most cases, Lawyers will take a reasonable fee once your case settles and can help negotiate settlement of all your outstanding Medical Bills.

Vehicle Damage Property damage is often an important issue in car accident cases. It is your RIGHT to have your automobile repaired or have it replaced for its value if it is totaled. You may also be entitled to car rental reimbursement. Insurance carriers often dispute the extent of your property damage claim.
