Experienced Representation For Injured Workers & Persons
Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. You are driving along a California street and suddenly someone slams into you, leaving you with a totaled car, broken bones, expensive medical bills and years of continuing therapy, not to mention lost time from work as you recover. You should not be left holding the bag for these expenses.
Your insurance company may have sold you on the “we will take care of you” message in its advertising, but in reality the company bottom line is what matters most. You may receive an offer for a settlement that will never cover the full expense of your injuries. Working with a San Mateo personal injury attorney can get you a much more equitable settlement that will include compensation for future medical care related to this injury as well as current and future lost wages so you can still pay your bills.
If your injury is work related, we will evaluate it to see if it will support a personal injury claim as well as an application for workers’ compensation benefits. We look for a factual basis for suing someone other than your own employer. Potential defendants can include the manufacturer of defective machinery, an inattentive driver or a negligent property owner. Personal injury law covers a much wider range of damages than workers’ compensation, so we will look for the chance to bring a personal injury action on behalf of our clients whenever the opportunity appears.
