Why Choose Shapiro Legal Group?

1. History of Success

Injury lawyer Jacob Shapiro has helped numerous clients throughout California recover substantial financial compensation for their injuries and losses. This includes numerous multi-million dollar and six-figure settlements for catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. You can read about some past examples in his Prior Results.

Among his accomplishments, during more than two decades as an advocate for the rights of personal injury victims, is a landmark decision from the California Court of Appeals. The court upheld claims against commercial property owners in a case Mr. Shapiro argued on behalf of a client injured by a defective elevator. The decision prevented the property owners from avoiding responsibility.

Throughout his career, Mr. Shapiro has been equally successful representing individuals suffering injuries in other types of accidents, including:

·       Accidents resulting in wrongful death

·       Automobile and truck accidents

·       Claims against federal, state and local government entities

·       Slip-and-fall accidents

·       Defective products

·       Premises liability, including dog bites

·       Motorcycle accidents

·       Pedestrian accidents

Regardless of how you were injured, his extensive personal injury litigation experience makes Jacob Shapiro a formidable adversary willing to take on big insurance companies and their defense attorneys to achieve the results you deserve.

2. Personal and Individualized Representation

Mr. Shapiro differentiates himself from the insurance companies by seeing his clients as people and not claim numbers. As a dedicated South San Francisco personal injury lawyer. He takes a personal approach to practicing law – using the things that make each client’s case unique in order to help him or her make smart decisions and maximize the value of the claim.

3. Efficient Out-of-Court Settlements

It's a myth that most cases end up in court. The truth is that you may be able to save time and money by settling out of court. While most people do not know what option to choose, Mr. Shapiro's experience goes a long way in helping analyze his clients' cases. He will help you make this decision based solely on what is best for you and your needs.

4. Trial Ready

In settlement negotiations, Mr. Shapiro’s goal is to convince the other side that they do not want to try their luck at trial. Using the unique facts of your case, he employs negotiation tactics and sound legal reasoning to push for settlements of maximum value.

Unlike some of the law firms you see advertising on TV that take on a high volume of cases in order to churn through them by reaching quick settlements, we investigate and prepare each case thoroughly. Mr. Shapiro believes in preparation and has built a reputation as being ready to go as far as necessary to achieve maximum results for his clients. This reputation affects how insurance company adjusters and defense attorneys approach settlement negotiations. They know your lawyer will not entertain anything less than a fair and adequate settlement offer.

Brain and spinal cord injuries, burns and scarring, and other serious injuries may require future medical treatment for you to make a full recovery. A quick settlement that does not take into consideration the need for scar revision surgery or rehabilitation services in the future could put the burden of paying for such services on your shoulders. Mr. Shapiro puts his decades of personal injury litigation experience to work ensuring that any settlement he recommends includes compensation that is fair and takes into account your past, present and, if applicable, your future needs.

5. Available for Home or Hospital Visits

Sometimes a victim’s injuries are too severe to travel to a law office or you could still be in the hospital recovering from your injuries. If you have difficulty traveling or are unable to leave the hospital, Mr. Shapiro will be more than happy to come to you.

Meet with attorney Jacob Shapiro at your home or in the hospital.

This has enabled him to develop superior courtroom skills and an unsurpassed knowledge of the law to put to use on behalf of victims of the negligent conduct of other parties.

All Mr. Shapiro does is help accident victims fight for just compensation. He does not take on other types of cases; and, most importantly, he never represents the insurance companies. As a result, his interests lie only in fighting to maximize his clients’ financial recoveries for injuries suffered in vehicle collisions, slips and falls, and other accidents.

What Compensation Do We Seek for Our Clients?

Jacob Shapiro at the Shapiro Legal Group is your personal advocate. When you suffer a serious injury due to someone else's negligence you deserve maximum compensation.

Mr. Shapiro works tirelessly to collect the evidence necessary to prove to the insurance company that you deserve compensation.

Some of the categories of compensation we help our clients recover in their cases include:

Medical Expenses

Even if your health insurance, or auto insurance, company pays some or all of your bills, our team works to get compensation for all of your recoverable medical expenses, past and future, you will incur while recovering from your injury.

These medical expenses can include, but are not limited to:

  • Ambulance transportation costs
  • Emergency room visits
  • Physician office visits
  • Therapy and treatment costs
  • Prescription medication costs
  • Medical equipment
  • Hospitalizations
  • Surgeries
  • On-going rehabilitation
  • Psychotherapy treatments

Lost Wages and Loss of Earning Capacity

Even a minor injury can require time away from work to recover.  The more serious the injury, the more a victim may need to take time off.  This can mean little or no income and severe difficulties with household expenses.

Our law firm not only seeks compensation for those lost wages, including used PTO, but we also ensure that if our clients cannot return to work fully (or at the same earning capacity as before the accident) then they receive fair compensation for the loss in future earnings as well.

If you must change careers because of your injuries, your new career may not pay as much as the job you had before. You can receive compensation for the loss in pay so that you do not suffer financially for that difference.

Lastly, any time you have to take off work for medical treatment or consultation appointments related to your accident should be compensated as well.

Pain and Suffering

No dollar amount can take away the physical pain and emotional suffering you experience after an accident.  But it is our firm's goal to help you recover as much monetary compensation as possible for these general damages.

Any physical pain or emotional distress you suffer may qualify for recoverable compensation. It can include emotional distress, physical pain, adverse changes in your quality of life, and even a general loss of enjoyment of life. 

Wrongful Deaths

When a family member dies because of the negligent acts of another, Mr. Shapiro aggressively seeks compensation for this severe loss - including the financial impact on the loved ones left behind.  We also ensure that heirs receive compensation for funeral and burial costs and any loss of earnings that would have been contributed to the household by their deceased family member. 

Note: Compensation amounts vary depending on the unique circumstances of each case. The only way to find out what categories of compensation you are eligible for is to meet with a lawyer first.
