According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), 223,128 people were injured in car accidents in California in 2013. For the same period, more than 3,000 fatalities were recorded due to automobile accidents. On average, a traffic accident involving injury or death is reported every three minutes and seventeen seconds. These collisions can wreak havoc people’s lives, disrupting their ability to work, and making it impossible to enjoy leisure activities.

You may not think your car crash was a big deal unless it resulted in catastrophic injury, but many injuries often produce long-term symptoms that can substantially degrade your quality of life. Because you may not perceive the symptoms of your injuries right away, our first priority is making sure you get the medical care you need with no cost to you, regardless of whether or not you have health insurance. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may require chiropractic care, physical therapy, MRI scans, epidural injections, or even surgery.
We’ll make sure your car gets repaired or replaced quickly and, until that time, we’ll get you in a rental if you need one so that you’re not stranded without transportation. We’ll also fight to ensure that you’re paid for your pain and suffering and for any money you lose if your unable to work because of your injuries.
Because we’re so confident in what we do, we work on a contingency basis. That means we get paid only if you get paid first. And, our fee is just a portion of your total settlement or verdict, so you never have to pay us out of your own pocket.
