Serving people throughout San Mateo, we will assist you in every phase of the claim and litigation process if you have been seriously injured or have lost a loved one in an accident. You need a strong advocate on your side who will work hard for what you deserve. Recovering fair compensation requires a personal injury law firm with the necessary resources, skills, and legal knowledge to pursue a prompt and effective settlement or verdict in your case.

Personal Injury

To recover compensation for their injuries, a victim usually needs to prove that the defendant was negligent. This means that the defendant failed to act with the appropriate level of care in the situation, and the victim was injured as a result. Proving negligence is a highly fact-intensive task, since the standard of care varies depending on the circumstances. Our San Mateo personal injury attorneys understand how to gather and present the evidence needed to establish liability.

Catastrophic Injuries

Our firm has helped victims across the Bay Area bring claims based on brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, severe burns, organ damage, and other catastrophic injuries. The stakes are high in these cases, since the victim may never fully recover from these injuries. Thus, the lives of the victim and their family members may be changed forever. In many cases, expert testimony from doctors, vocational experts, and other professionals can help explain the scope of the victim’s injuries and their impact on the victim’s future.

Catastrophic injuries are serious events that cause devastating effects on an injured victim’s life that are long-term and often irreversible. Victims who suffer catastrophic injuries often require decades of rehabilitative therapy, medical care, and invasive surgeries. Traumatic brain injuries, disfigurement, spinal cord injuries, and third-degree burns can all be catastrophic injuries.

Catastrophic injuries can cause permanent disabilities and reduce a victim’s ability to obtain employment and live an independent life.

Wrongful Death

After a tragic accident claims a victim’s life, their family members may not know where to turn. California law allows certain people to bring a wrongful death claim in these situations, including a surviving spouse, domestic partner, or child. In addition, certain people who were financially dependent on the victim may be able to bring a claim, such as the victim’s parents or stepchildren. The victim’s estate may recover certain types of damages, while the victim’s family may recover other damages. The personal injury attorneys at our San Mateo firm will fight for the full range of damages to which you may be entitled. For example, the estate may recover compensation for the victim’s medical bills, lost income, and burial and funeral expenses, while family members may recover compensation for the loss of their loved one’s financial and moral support, affection, and guidance.

Car Accidents

Careless driving causes serious collisions each day in the Bay Area. For example, a driver may fail to yield at an intersection, speed recklessly, text while driving, or drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. When a driver fails to take the proper precautions to protect the safety of people around them, a victim can hold them liable for damages. These usually include compensation for the victim’s medical bills and lost income, in addition to their pain and suffering. Future items of loss also may be recovered in many cases.

Truck Accident

The weight of a commercial vehicle results in a devastating impact when it strikes a passenger car. A victim of a truck accident can sue the truck driver who caused the accident, and they often can hold a trucking company accountable as well. A trucking company may be directly liable for a crash if it failed to properly train or supervise the driver, or if it retained a driver who was unfit or unqualified to operate a truck. Moreover, the trucking company may be indirectly liable if the crash occurred while the driver was on the job. The personal injury lawyers at our San Mateo firm will bring all the at-fault parties into the litigation after a truck accident.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists have an equal right to use the road, but drivers of standard vehicles often fail to respect this right. A driver may fail to yield to a motorcyclist at an intersection or maneuver aggressively in the presence of a motorcyclist, among other dangerous behaviors. Sometimes a driver or their insurer will try to argue that a motorcyclist was at fault for an accident. This would trigger the pure comparative negligence rule in California, which reduces a victim’s compensation award in proportion to their percentage of fault. We know how to fight back against unfair allegations of negligence by a motorcyclist so that their right to compensation is fully preserved.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles offer an environmentally friendly and frequently enjoyable way to travel around the Bay Area. Like motorcycle riders, however, bicyclists have no protection from the elements. They tend to suffer especially serious injuries when a careless driver strikes them. For example, a driver may fail to check their blind spots for bicycles or fail to notice a bicyclist when they are making a turn. You should promptly consult our San Mateo personal injury lawyers if you suffered injuries in a bicycle accident so that we can start building your claim.

Pedestrian Accidents

Drivers must yield to pedestrians in California at any marked or unmarked crosswalk. They also need to exercise reasonable care when they see a pedestrian in the roadway to avoid a collision. Pedestrian accidents can be catastrophic, since the human body is not built to withstand the impact of a car or truck. Compensation awards thus may be substantial in these cases, accounting for a broad range of physical, emotional, and financial harm. If a victim dies from their injuries, their family members may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Bus Accidents

People trust bus drivers to operate their vehicles carefully as part of their job. However, bus drivers are human and can make careless mistakes, such as failing to check blind spots, making improper turns, speeding, or driving while distracted. Passengers on the bus and people in other vehicles struck by the bus may have claims against the driver and the entity that operated the bus. While some buses are operated by private entities, many buses are operated by the government. Special requirements apply to claims against the government, and the personal injury attorneys at our San Mateo firm can navigate these obstacles on your behalf.

Boat Accidents

The Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay provide many opportunities for recreation on the water. If an operator of a boat fails to handle the vessel properly, serious injuries can result. Inexperienced, poorly trained, distracted, or intoxicated operators can make errors that lead to a collision or an incident involving sinking or tipping. In other cases, a defective component of a boat may cause a fire or another type of accident. When this happens, a victim may have a claim against the manufacturer of the component.

Construction Accidents

The construction industry poses an elevated level of risk to people who work in it. Construction workers may fall from heights, suffer crushing injuries from heavy equipment, or suffer blows from vehicles or falling objects. If the accident occurred on the job, a construction worker should be able to recover workers’ compensation benefits, which provide medical coverage and partial wage replacement. In addition, a victim may be able to pursue a third-party personal injury claim with the assistance of a personal injury lawyer in San Mateo if someone other than their employer caused the accident. A third-party claim can result in additional compensation, such as damages for pain and suffering.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Many car accident victims suffer from whiplash and herniated discs, which are common types of spinal cord injuries that may be caused by a sudden impact. In more serious cases, victims may experience a type of paralysis, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia. Paraplegia affects the body below the waist, while quadriplegia affects the body below the neck. Spinal cord injuries are often classified as complete or incomplete, which describes the loss of communication between the nerves below the injury and the brain. The personal injury attorneys at our San Mateo firm provide compassionate representation to victims who are coping with these life-altering injuries.

Brain Injuries

Diagnosing a brain injury often requires a physical examination and possibly PET scans, CT scans, and MRIs. There are different types of brain injuries, including penetrating head injuries, closed head injuries, and blast injuries.

Blast injuries happen due to explosions. Closed head injuries are traumatic brain injuries in which the skull remains physically intact. Penetrating head injuries are fractures in the skull caused by the head striking the ground or a foreign object.

Severe brain injuries can permanently damage physical and cognitive capacities. Many people suffer so-called mild traumatic brain injuries and never lose consciousness, but they can still experience lasting effects.

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can result from contact with toxic gases, radiation, chemicals, heat, and electricity. Many burn injuries are severe enough to damage nerves. If the outer skin sustains damage from a burn, then that burn is a first-degree burn. Second-degree burns damage both the first and second layers of the skin. Third-degree burns damage all layers of the skin and can destroy nerve endings, possibly causing damage to muscle and bone after destroying skin tissue and nerves.

Carbon Monoxide Death

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious emergency occurring when an individual inhales carbon monoxide gas. Many people unknowingly inhale this tasteless, odorless gas. Burning wood, coal, natural gas, and kerosene will produce carbon monoxide.

Exposure to carbon monoxide gas can damage internal organs, including the brain. Carbon monoxide death occurs when carbon monoxide poisoning damages the heart, brain, and other vital organs.

Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can result in serious injuries that require immediate medical attention if a bite breaks through the skin. Many dog bites can cause permanent disfigurement, puncture wounds, deep lacerations, fractures, and infection, among other injuries and complications, including possible rabies exposure.

Children are more at risk for dog bites than adults, and dog attacks often occur when a child is playing with a dog. It is impossible to predict when a dog bite will occur, and dog owners should be responsible for injuries their dogs cause.

Electric Scooter Accidents

Shareable e-scooter accidents are on the rise in many cities throughout the United States. Thousands of individuals rent e-scooters, and distracted drivers may harm these e-scooter riders by striking them with motor vehicles. Some drivers follow e-scooter riders too closely and cause riders to crash, often suffering head, neck, or back injuries. E-scooter accidents are a serious problem, and injured victims often suffer catastrophic injuries.

Nursing Home Injuries

Elder abuse is common in many nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the United States. Neglect and abuse in nursing homes can be physical, emotional, or sexual. Physical abuse can involve restraining an elderly or disabled person or inflicting physical suffering and harm on an elderly or disabled person.

Neglect is a common form of abuse in nursing homes. Nurses and certified nursing assistants may fail to administer medications to patients. Nursing home employees may also leave patients in the same position on a hospital bed for long periods, causing bedsores to develop on the patients’ bodies. Neglect can result in serious injuries to residents.

Other Vehicle Accidents

Driving a motor vehicle is an inherently dangerous act. Advanced technology and engineering cannot put a complete stop to property damage, physical injuries, and fatalities caused during motor vehicle accidents. Rear-end accidents, sideswipe collisions, and intersection crashes are some of the most common types of motor vehicle accidents.

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the primary causes of personal injury throughout the United States. Spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and fractured bones all frequently occur during motor vehicle accidents.

Premises Liability

Premises liability injuries occur when an injured victim suffers an injury while on someone else’s property. These accidents often happen due to negligent property owners. Property owners must make premises safe for visitors, but slip and falls, inadequate security, property construction, hidden electrical wires, and dangerous work activities are all common causes of premises liability injuries.

Premises liability can involve many different types of owners and occupiers of property, including nightclubs, apartment complexes, restaurants, and gyms. These injury claims are often complex and involve many different areas of the law.

Products Liability

Products liability cases concern defective products. Some products may be inherently dangerous, but other products may be dangerous to users due to design defects or manufacturing defects. A product contains a design defect when the product contains a flaw in its initial design. A product may contain a manufacturing defect when there is a problem in the manufacturing process or assembly process.

Products liability cases typically involve many different responsible parties, including large corporations, which can make them challenging to pursue.

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries can alter an injured victim’s life forever. Nerves, vertebrae, and spinal disks are the components of the spinal cord, and injuries to any component of the spinal cord can affect the injured victim’s motor function and sensation. Spinal cord injuries can occur during both minor accidents and catastrophic accidents, and some victims suffer permanent paralysis.

Stairway Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, but falls on stairways may increase the likelihood of a victim suffering a costly and life-changing injury. The injured victim can strike his or her head or spinal cord with a great amount of force. Stairway accidents cause serious bodily injury, and many injured victims require long-term care and medical assistance to recover from these types of injuries.

Your Personal Injury Questions Answered

How Much Is My Injury Claim Worth?

Many factors contribute to the overall value of a personal injury claim. Tort law is designed to compensate you for injuries you suffered due to the negligent acts of another party.

 

One important factor to consider when determining the value of any personal injury claim is the total medical bills and treatment costs. You can receive compensation for past and future medical treatment, including any rehabilitative therapy you need to help you recover from your injuries.

 

Lost income is also a relevant factor to consider when determining the total value of a personal injury claim. Lost wages and lost future earnings are both recoverable in a personal injury claim. If you can return to work, but only in a lower position than you occupied before, then you can receive the numerical difference between your wages before and after suffering your injuries.

 

Additionally, injured victims can recover financially for the pain and suffering they experience as well as the emotional distress they endured as a result of their injuries. The actual numerical value of these damages will vary depending on the facts and circumstances of each case.

 

An attorney can obtain the necessary paperwork and calculate how much financial compensation you can recover. If you don’t hire a professional to help you perform this task, then the insurance company may attack your damage claims and suggest that your calculations are inflated and unrealistic.

Do I Need a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Claim?

If you suffered injuries in an accident, you have to deal with many different things simultaneously. You have to seek medical treatment, request time off work, and file paperwork with your insurance company.

 

Many people ask if they need to seek out a personal injury attorney following an accident. 99 percent of the time, the answer to this question is yes. It is in the best interests of everyone involved if you hire a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident. You want to hire an attorney to communicate directly with the insurance company.

 

Insurance companies can deny your claims, delay responding to your claim, and send you low settlement offers. Hiring a personal injury attorney can help you prevent the insurance companies from using these tactics early on during your case.

 

Having a professional communicate with insurance companies will help you notify them that you are serious about recovering the financial compensation you deserve. You do not have to fight against the insurance companies by yourself. A personal injury attorney can help you recover the monetary compensation you deserve without charging you excessive retainer fees or hourly fees.

Should I Accept an Insurance Settlement Offer?

No, you should never accept any insurance settlement offer before consulting with a personal injury attorney. These settlement offers are often too low, and they do not take into account future losses or pain and suffering.

 

Insurance companies do not want to take personal injury cases to court. Most insurance companies will review the facts of your case and then send you a settlement offer.

 

You should not accept a settlement offer without speaking to a personal injury attorney first because you may be entitled to more financial compensation. You also may be able to negotiate for a better settlement offer, and a personal injury attorney can help you put pressure on the insurance company.

 

You need a trained professional on your side when you are communicating with insurance companies. By hiring a personal injury attorney, you let the insurance companies know that you are serious about your injuries and the amount of financial compensation you think you deserve.

What About My Future Medical Costs?

Personal injury victims often require ongoing medical care that can extend years into the future. These costs will vary depending on the nature of the victim’s injuries. Future treatment may include testing, hospice care, doctor visits, and surgery.

A personal injury attorney can communicate with medical specialists, doctors, and physical therapists to determine how much future medical treatment will cost based on the injured victim’s age, treatment goals, and life expectancy.

 

An attorney may also help determine if medical costs will increase in the future due to market fluctuations or changes in treatment procedures. A permanent disability will affect an injury victim’s lifestyle, and a personal injury attorney can determine methods used to calculate how this disability affects the patient’s life financially.

 

A personal injury attorney will also consider additional costs created by specific personal injuries. Some injuries may require numerous surgeries over several years. A personal injury attorney can help the court determine a numerical figure to account for these costs.

What if I Cannot Work Because of My Personal Injury?

You may be wondering what to do if you suffer personal injuries during an accident and you can no longer work. You are entitled to lost wages, financial compensation for the costs of your medical bills, and other damages.

 

You do not have to be a full-time employee to recover lost wages and lost future earnings. Part-time employees are capable of obtaining financial compensation as well. You are eligible to claim money for the dollar value of missed overtime hours, vacation days, and the money you could have made from important projects, interviews, and commissions.

 

You will need a personal injury attorney to help you demonstrate to the court that you missed work due to the personal injuries you suffered in an accident caused by another party’s negligence. Also, you need to calculate how much money you would have made if you had not suffered your personal injuries.

 

You can help your personal injury attorney collect paperwork from your employer, so your attorney can use timesheets and employment documents to calculate the damages you suffered due to lost wages and lost future earnings.

Brain Injuries

Among the most challenging types of injuries are traumatic brain injuries, which can affect a victim’s cognitive and emotional condition as well as their physical health. Brain injuries are often divided into closed head injuries and penetrating head injuries. Closed head injuries occur when the brain is jolted by an impact, but the skull remains intact. Penetrating head injuries occur when an object breaks through the skull. Symptoms of brain injuries may not appear immediately, so victims should monitor their condition after an accident for signs such as disorientation, memory loss, mood changes, and severe headaches.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Many car accident victims suffer from whiplash and herniated discs, which are common types of spinal cord injuries that may be caused by a sudden impact. In more serious cases, victims may experience a type of paralysis, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia. Paraplegia affects the body below the waist, while quadriplegia affects the body below the neck.
