Fair Compensation For Car Accident Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most dangerous public safety hazards in the San Mateo area. Almost every time we drive on the highway or surface roads, we reach our destination safely. But all it takes is a single encounter with a reckless driver to change your life forever. Injuries from a car accident can cause permanent disability or take the life of a loved one.

When this happens, California law states that the negligent driver who caused the wreck can be required to pay for the victim’s damages, such as their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. But, for victims, obtaining rightful compensation can be too difficult to get on their own. Auto insurance companies have deep pockets and work hard to avoid paying valid claims.

The Law Office of Paul J. Smoot provides representation to plaintiffs in auto accident cases. Attorney Paul Smoot has practiced personal injury law since 1992 and secured millions of dollars in settlements and court verdicts. As a solo practitioner, he will work one-on-one with you at every step of the process. You will be in control of your case, backed by Paul’s seasoned advice and forceful advocacy.

A Firm That Handles All Types Of Crashes

Paul assists clients following all types of traffic collisions, including:

  • Car crashes
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian collisions

Every motor vehicle accident is unique, but Paul has handled virtually every possible scenario in his long career. He knows how insurance companies operate and what it takes to put together a compelling argument that you are entitled to maximum compensation. He will secure key evidence from the accident scene and help you diagnose your injuries properly. This evidence is part of creating a clear picture of who caused the accident, the extent of the harm you suffered and how much compensation you are entitled to under the law.

Most personal injury claims settle out of court, but sometimes, it’s necessary to take a case to trial. Paul is a tough, respected litigator. He has successfully tried cases throughout Northern California. If the insurance company’s final offer is unreasonable, you can trust that trial is a viable option.
