Car accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental injuries and death in Milpitas and across the state. Car accidents are always unexpected, which means that most people are not prepared for massive medical expenses and lost wages due to missing work while recovering from accident injuries.
The attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger know how quickly life can change after a car accident. They are dedicated to helping injured clients and their families get the compensation they deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s reckless actions, contact our office to schedule a free consultation.
Car Accident Practice
- Our law firm has spent decades pursuing maximum compensation for those who have been injured by someone else’s negligence. Car accidents happen, and those who bear responsibility should be held accountable for resulting injuries and damages.
- When we handle personal injury claims, we put our clients’ needs first. We take the necessary time to get to know you and your family and to understand your goals and expectations.
- We have one full-time physician attorney on staff and a second one on-call for medical consultations and case screenings. Our medical professionals help us determine and prove the extent of our clients’ injuries, which is a critical element to secure maximum compensation in a settlement or at trial.
Insurance Companies And Legal Representation
Recovering from your injuries and managing other accident consequences, such as medical care and pain management, can be a difficult and exhausting process. During this time, you should not have to worry about insurance paperwork and phone calls from adjusters who want you to settle your claim for as little as possible. Unfortunately, when people choose to handle their injury claims without an attorney, they often settle their case for a monetary amount that does not cover the extent of their injuries and damages.
If you require future accident-related medical care that you did not anticipate when you accepted your settlement, you may be left paying out of pocket for medical expenses. We will accurately calculate your total losses, including future accident related damages, to ensure that you only accept a settlement offer that fully and fairly compensates you. We will handle all of the settlement negotiations and communications with insurance company representatives.
Settlement Agreements And Litigation
Our attorneys prepare every case as if they are taking it to trial. When you have an experienced litigator, like ours, with a trial-ready case, defendants and insurance companies know that we will not settle for an inadequate offer. Litigation is expensive, and trials are risky for insurance companies, so when they know that we are ready for trial, they are often more willing to settle for an amount that you deserve.
