Additionally, certain local streets near popular shopping areas or schools may encounter heavier traffic at specific times of the day.

We represent accident victims who suffer severe injuries from auto, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents. These injuries may fall into various categories of damages for which plaintiffs are entitled to compensation. Such compensation received in a personal injury case should repay the monetary, physical, and mental cost of an accident caused by someone's negligence. It may even punish the most egregious kinds of conduct in some cases. These damages may include the following:
- The cost of medical treatment. This damage award includes all costs associated with any treatment of injuries from the accident, including reimbursement for treatment the victim has already received and compensation for future medical care that the victim must accept.
- Lost income or earning capacity. This damages award deals with the crash's impact on a person's ability to earn a salary and wages. It is not limited to income that the individual has already lost but the potential income they would have been able to make in the future. This lost income is also known as the person's loss of earning capacity.
- Property losses. One form of the damages award that a plaintiff may receive is the cost of repairs to personal property, such as vehicles or other damaged items due to the accident. If repairs are not feasible, a plaintiff should receive compensation for the lost property's fair market value.
- Pain, suffering, and mental or emotional distress. When it comes to more severe accidents, injuries may include any psychological impacts the crash may have on an individual. A person may receive compensation for such effects as anxiety, fear, loss of sleep, or even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Additionally, individuals are entitled to compensation for any pain and discomfort that they went through because of the accident and immediately after ongoing pain due to recurring or persistent medical issues.
- Loss of consortium. These damages usually refer to the impact a person's injuries may have on their relationship with a spouse or domestic partner. In this case, the award is generally made to the affected family member instead of the plaintiff.
- Punitive Damages. If the conduct of the negligent or reckless party is particularly outrageous, a court may award punitive damages, which are meant to punish the defendant for such behavior, as well as for deterrence.
It is critical for people looking for a Benicia car accident lawyer to analyze a prospective attorney's practice area to see if they can provide the skilled and dedicated representation you need. Some attorneys practice in various areas of law that are sometimes unrelated, such as family law, criminal defense, and business transactions. The problem with hiring general practice lawyers is that they usually cannot offer the kind of experience and nuanced knowledge you need in a severe personal injury or wrongful death case. Our legal practice is entirely devoted to serious personal injury and wrongful death cases, and we have done so for nearly four decades.
There is no good substitute for a face-to-face conversation with a prospective attorney to determine if the representation would be a good fit. However, to get to that point, people usually start by searching online for local Benicia auto accident attorneys. Information is available online regarding injury attorneys, including any pending disciplinary actions taken by a state bar association against a lawyer. Such corrective action should be the first red flag, and potential clients should consider this an absolute standard in finding representation.Check Client Reviews and Testimonials
Another method of screening search results for local attorneys is reading any testimonials provided by current and former clients. Some attorneys offer these testimonials on their law firm websites. Our website includes an extensive list of testimonials from clients who believe we have provided them with excellent legal representation. Attorneys may also post a summary listing of prior verdicts and settlements that a law firm has recovered on behalf of clients. This may prove informative in choosing an accident lawyer.Check Review Sites
We have a proven track record of achieving good results in my personal injury cases. Current and former clients have expressed their satisfaction regarding legal services in various ways. They have provided high praise and recommendations in legal services websites such as Avvo or other social media rating websites such as Google or Yelp. We have received excellent Avvo ratings (10 out of 10). Those who have received legal representation from our firm have received excellent reviews (5 stars out of 5) on Yelp. Our Google profile has also received similar accolades from former and current clients. These ratings speak for our advocacy and seasoned representation in personal injury cases.Check Past Verdicts and Settlements
Our website maintains a long list of past judgments and settlements we have secured for our clients. These favorable outcomes include million-dollar settlements and judgment amounts as high as $25 million. We belong to the Million Dollar Forum, consisting of personal injury lawyers who have successfully recovered settlements and verdicts over a million dollars. A track record of successful verdicts shows that we are comfortable with the courtroom and will not hesitate to proceed to trial if necessary. Often, personal injury attorneys who are only experienced with settlements but not with verdicts cannot effectively advocate for clients in the courtroom, which may be required if insurance companies fail to make reasonable and just settlement offers.
