Burlingame, CA Personal Injury Attorney

Nurse Bandaging a Wound

Experienced Injury Lawyer Serving Victims in the San Francisco Bay Area 

Many people are injured in accidents who do not know what to do and are unaware of their legal options. Just because we use the word "accident" does not mean that the injury is not the legal responsibility of another person, business, or government entity. When people or companies cause an injury producing accident, the negligent wrongdoer should be held accountable and the injured victim should be appropriately and fairly compensated for their damages. There is an entire area of law called TORTS which covers the legal remedies for people and their families who have been injured or killed as a result of someone else's negligence. It is in this area of law that Mr. Shapiro received the American Jurisprudence Award and in which he has dedicated his entire legal career to help people just like you.

WHAT INSURANCE COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW:

Almost all accident claims are handled by insurance companies. They spend millions of dollars on advertising trying to convince you not only to buy their product but also to fool you into thinking that they will treat you fairly if they are ever handling your injury claim. DON'T BE FOOLED. The sole goal of the insurance company is to resolve your claim for as little money as possible. There are even settlement techniques designed to get people to sign away their legal rights before they know the full extent of their injuries. In California, if the insurance company is working for the negligent party then they owe you no legal duty to treat you fairly. Because you can't sue them for not treating you fairly they often don't.

WHY YOU NEED A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY:

The truth is that you need experienced representation to level the playing field. The insurance company starts gathering evidence from day one. They will request a recorded statement to use against you. They will offer you less than your claim is worth. And if you don't have an injury lawyer what are you going to do about it? Good luck filing a lawsuit in pro per and getting a respectable settlement or having a chance of success in court. When you hire an personal injury lawyer you will avoid making mistakes which could ruin your claim. You will get important counseling and legal advice regarding your options. You will work together to gather the evidence vital to support your claim both for liability and damages. Plus, you will get an advocate so the insurance company knows on a worthy claim that if the matter is not settled it WILL be going to litigation. Having representation often avoids litigation because the insurance companies know many unrepresented people will simply give up or settle for very little instead of trying to fight without an attorney.
