In an instant, a car accident can destroy the lives of victims and their families. Millions of Americans are injured every year in motor vehicle accidents. Thousands of innocent people are killed, and those who survive often walk away with permanent disabilities, including brain damage and spinal cord injuries. If you have sustained serious injuries as a result of another driver’s carelessness, you have the right to hold that driver responsible. A West Coast Trial Lawyers attorney can help compensate you for the losses you have suffered, including medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

If you or a loved one is involved in a motor vehicle accident, protect your rights by contacting our experienced attorneys. Insurance companies are businesses, and their primary goal is to pay you as little as possible. The insurance company may offer you a quick settlement, hoping they can resolve your case for less compensation. Even if the accident was caused by a hit-and-run driver or an insurance motorist, we may be able to get you compensation from your own insurance company. Our lawyers have years of experience aggressively negotiating with insurance companies, and taking them to trial when necessary. At West Coast Trial Lawyers, we fight to obtain the maximum settlement for your injuries. You never pay anything if we don’t win your case, so call us today for a free, no obligation consultation.

We have represented thousands of clients, and have helped them recover more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements over the past fifteen years. We aggressively fight for full compensation for every client, and we prepare every case with the intention of going to trial. Because we take cases to trial and we win, we get the best settlements from insurance companies.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do I need a lawyer?

    Insurance is a business, and like all businesses, the insurance company’s chief concern is to maximize its profits. Their adjusters are trained to settle your injury claim for the lowest amount possible. Injury victims often have no idea of the value of their case, and so they may agree to a low settlement amount offered by the insurance company. If you have a skilled and aggressive personal injury lawyer working for you, you can maximize your chance of getting the compensation you deserve.
  • How do I pay for your services?

    West Coast Trial Lawyers is committed to providing clients with a no-stress, no-hassle intake process. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that if we do not win, we do not get paid. There are no up-front fees or costs. The amount you would pay as a client is equal to a percentage of your total recovery.
  • How much is my case worth?

    Determining the value of a case is one of the harder questions for a plaintiff lawyer to answer. There are many factors that are considered, including evidence of liability, witness statements and whether there are discrepancies in testimony, the severity of your injuries, insurance limits, and identity of the defendant. Compensation may include payment of medical bills, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of ability to enjoy life, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity. Over the past fifteen years, the lawyers at West Coast Trial Lawyers have helped clients recover more than $1 BILLION in settlements and judgments at trial. We have successfully negotiated thousands of claims and use our knowledge and experience to obtain the maximum recovery for our clients.
  • What damages am I entitled to recover?

    This depends on the type of case and the damages that have been sustained. If you have suffered injury and require medical treatment, past and future medical bills are recoverable, as are all past and future lost wages. You can also recover “general damages,” which include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and inconvenience associated with the injury. In automobile collision cases, our clients are also entitled to recover the damage to their vehicle, as well as the “loss of use” of that vehicle for the time our client was without the use because it was damaged.
  • I don’t want to go to court, can you still help me?

    Most certainly. Many of our clients are busy and want to avoid going to court. Though the attorneys at West Coast Trial Lawyers have successfully tried many cases, most of our cases are settled well before trial. We do our very best to come to a reasonable settlement before filling a lawsuit, and we never file suit without our client agreeing to do so.
