Service Category: Motor Vehicle Accident

Crosswalk Accidents

Pedestrians are often injured or killed in crosswalk accidents where inattentive motorists disregard the signals. We have traffic light engineers that help us establish the condition and color of the light at the time of the accident holding the driver and their insurers responsible for these devastating accidents

Emergency Shoulder Accidents

Motorists or motorcyclists will often pull off to the shoulder of the road to check on their vehicle, wait for assistance or look in the trunk only to get hit or killed by an oncoming driver. We have the experts in accident reconstruction, human factors and visibility to hold these drivers and their insurers responsible for these tragic events

Sidewalk Accidents

Pedestrians get injured walking on the sidewalk due to errant, inattentive drivers, open or improperly placed or maintained manholes or other debris, or falling objects from buildings, construction sites or locations above. We have the experts and experience to litigate and win these cases when these horrific events occur

Orthopedics & Joint Injuries

We see a host of serious orthopedic injuries that ranges from a broken foot to a hip replacement to a knee replacement. We have a stable of decorated experts who served on Olympic committees and professional sports teams as consultants and team doctors to evaluate, treat and serve as expert witnesses in our cases. We are wise to the defense’s common approach and argument that such injuries while caused by the accident were pre-existing through arthritic changes that would have likely occurred even without the accident, as well as there was no such mechanism of injury in the accident. Such defense attacks are tired and ineffective when met with experienced trial lawyers and experts that are prepared to demonstrate the manner in which the accident specifically caused the injuries resulting in substantial awards.

Paralysis & Spinal Injuries

In most of the accident cases we handle, our clients typically suffer neck or back spinal injuries ranging from complete paralysis to disk and facet injury in the spine. We utilize the best neurosurgeons, radiologists and pain management experts to evaluate, these injuries who can offer expert opinions on the severity at trial. In a world where every defense lawyer contends that any level of spinal injury is degenerative or pre-existed the accident, we aggressively litigate and offer evidence on the traumatic nature of the injuries through expert opinion, diagnostic tools, and medical illustration and animation. Our experience and knowledge of the jury instructions allows us to build a case around the defense arguments of degenerative conditions that wins every time and results in substantial monetary awards.


Paralysis is obviously the most serious form of spinal cord injury, whether it is intermittent or partial paralysis, or complete and permanent paralysis such as quadriplegia. We have handled paraplegia and quadriplegia cases from auto and truck accidents, falls, products cases or other accidents. We have the experience and the experts to present your case to a jury to obtain significant jury verdicts for this devastating life-long injury

Spinal Cord Injury, Surgery and Fusion

The most common form of spinal cord injury is a herniated or bulging disk which can enter the spinal canal or the nerve roots and cause extreme pain and/or weakness in your arms or legs. We handle many cervical spine or neck injuries and lumbar spine or back injuries through jury verdict. We have the experience and the experts to assess the spinal cord injury including spinal surgery, which could be a discectomy (trimming of the disk), a laminectomy (removal of the disk) and/or a fusion (a removal of the disk and fusion of the spinal bones). These injuries and surgeries have life-long consequences on your ability to work and function as a normal person, extensive medical bills sometimes losing your career and ability to take care of yourself and your family and live a normal life. We have taken many jury verdicts for clients with spinal cord injuries including fusions

Back and Neck Injuries (Whiplash) and Pain Management

Spinal injuries such as whiplash can be mild but can be very painful and lead to a life-time of pain and medical care. We have the experts to assess the spinal injury and refer for the appropriate care. The injuries often occur in low speed accidents, such as in bumper to bumper traffic, but we have the experience and the experts in accident reconstruction, biomechanics and kinematics to prove to the jury that the accident was most likely the cause of the injury. We also have experts available to assess the treatment for these injuries, whether it is chiropractic, physical therapy, pain management and injections or referrals for surgical consultations.

Automobile Accident

One may think that just any lawyer can handle a routine auto accident case particularly one that is minor or that has relatively minor damage. However, the concept that people always receive minor injuries in minor accidents is a misnomer. We have special litigation and trial skills and experts to prove to juries that victims of minor car accidents can, in fact, sustain more serious injuries or death in these minor accidents. Through the use of damage matching analysis, computer-driven crush analysis, and vehicle dynamics programs, we can demonstrate that even the most minor crash can cause more serious injuries or death. In focusing on the scientific variable of Delta V or change in speed, we can demonstrate to juries that even minor accidents can result in larger impacts on the human body than one would expect or imagine. Often times a minor accident initially causes what is believed to be minor injuries which later develop into more serious problems, but we have the medical experts to combat claims by insurance companies that the injuries were not produced by the accident or were somehow caused by natural degenerative processes. As trial lawyers, we routinely see these claims by insurance companies but they backfire and juries award substantial damages. If you are in a minor accident but feel your injuries are more significant, please do not hesitate to call upon us to handle these kinds of cases.

Limited Insurance

Auto accidents often raise the question of what happens when you have injuries and pain from an accident but the other party has limited insurance or will not even disclose how much insurance they have. We have experience in demanding insurance information and in some cases holding the insurance companies responsible for the damages well above the insurance policy limit. We can make these complicated issues very simple for you

Low Speed Accidents

Most insurance companies take great pride in claiming that injuries cannot occur in lower speed accidents like those that happen in bumper to bumper traffic. We have experience trying these cases to juries with experts and demonstrative evidence that shows that low speed accidents can cause serious injuries and/or cause a pre-existing injury to become much worse

Commercial Trucks and Buses Cause a Lot of Accidents

We are experienced in litigating the numerous kinds of reasons trucks cause accidents including drowsy driving, distracted driving, inadequate training, unsecured cargo, aggressive driving schedules, inverted driving schedules, night driving, circadian rhythms and poor road conditions. Sometimes commercial transportation companies let drivers drive that have a history of accidents and even criminal conduct

Commercial Policies

In commercial truck, vehicle or premises accidents often the responsible parties have “towers’ of insurance that need to be exposed and attached to make sure that all insurance carriers involved are aware of the accident and involved in the litigation, claim and settlement process. We have decades of experience litigating commercial and excess insurers for coverages and liability for commercial vehicle and premises accidents including bad faith litigation in commercial and excess policies

Bad Faith Cases

Insurance companies sometimes refuse to acknowledge and perform their obligations in cases involving residential accidents involving falls, burns, dog bites, drowning and swimming pool accidents and other accidents and damages that can happen in a home or around the house. We are fully experienced in how to handle these cases and require the insurer to assume coverage under the policies and pay the claim or face bad faith consequences under the Insurance Code

Motorcycle, Bicycle & Bird Scooter Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are a specialty unto themselves. These machines are of course unique and the operating rights of motorcycles are by enlarge ignored on the highway by other motorists. We have special
experience in litigating and trying motorcycles cases in accidents involving lane splitting, sideswipe and intersectional accidents. We use experts in motorcycle operation and technology as well as human factors experts on the requirement of other drivers to visualize and detect the presence of motorcycles. The reality is that most drivers do not know the rights of motorcycles on the road and do not know where to expect them on the highway, resulting in serious accidents. The same is true of bicycles and bird scooters, they have very special rules of the road and most drivers do not understand or respect the rights of non-motorized vehicles such as bicycles and bird scooters, bike lanes and other designated areas for their operation. For example, bicycles and bird scooters are required by law to operate according to the rules ofthe road, observe traffic lights and streets signs and are not considered pedestrians that can operate on the sidewalks and rely on pedestrian crossing signals. We understand those unique rules and know how to effectively educate juries in their application. Not surprisingly, jurors are by nature prejudiced against motorcycles, bicycles, bird scooters, and other non-motorized vehicles and we have experience in confronting those prejudices with jurors in voir dire resulting in a jury that is fair and willing to significantly compensate victims of motorcycle, bicycle and bird scooter accidents, which generally result in seriousinjury or death.

Motorcycle Accidents Cause Severe Injury

We are very experienced in handling motorcycle cases, which are unique kinds of cases. Motorcycle accidents often cause paralysis, broken bones, and death, which is why are called “donor cycles” in emergency rooms. Inattentive divers do not respect motorcycles on the road and do not recognize the legal ability of motorcycles to lane-split. We will protect you in any motorcycle accident case and we will retain specialized experts in the area of motorcycle law and handling to help you win your case

Bicycle Accidents Are Complex

We are experienced in accidents involving bicycles, which can also cause very serious injury or death. Bicycles in California are required to obey traffic signals not pedestrian signals and are required to be ridden on the road or the bike lane and not on the sidewalks. We are well versed in litigating serious bicycle accident claims and know all of the rules to protect your rights and obtain significant jury awards in these catastrophic accidents

Bird Scooter Accidents

Although bird scooters are a relatively new phenomenon, they are involved in a lot of accidents, because drivers are not aware of them, do not respect them, do not see them and do not account for them. We understand the bird scooter technology and have a team of investigators and experts ready to investigate and help you win your bird scooter accident
