Auto Accidents

Bay Area Personal Injury Lawyer

After an injury in a car accident, do not take the first offer you get from an insurance company. Insurance companies are only interested in settling claims quickly and for as little as possible. Generally, you do not want to settle and injury case until you know the full extent of your injuries and other costly consequences of the accident. Before you do anything else, speak with an experienced lawyer.

For more than 35 years, attorney Michael E. Adams has helped people with personal injury matters. He works to get you as much compensation as you need, as opposed to insurance companies who make more money when they give you less. In a free phone consultation, Mr. Adams can tell you how the law applies to your situation. Contact us.

In his long career as an attorney, Mr. Adams has successfully handed many car accident claims. Just a few are as follows:

Mr. Adams' three clients were a driver and two passengers whose stopped vehicle was struck from behind at high speed. They suffered extensive neck and back injuries requiring long term chiropractic care. During settlement discussions, the other driver's insurance refused to give reasonable consideration to the cost of the chiropractic care. So Mr. Adams took the case to jury trial, proved that the chiropractic care was appropriate, and won a verdict awarding full damages.

Another case involved a head-on vehicular collision in which Mr. Adams' client suffered major abdominal injuries because his car was unequipped with seat belts. After obtaining a policy limits settlement from the other driver's insurer, Mr. Adams then sued the used car dealer that sold the car without any seatbelts, seeking both compensatory and punitive damages. He obtained a substantial settlement on the brink of trial.
