Car Accidents FAQs
– Get the medical care you need.
– Talk to your doctor about all your symptoms.
– Don’t talk to insurance companies about your injuries. Tell them you are unsure and looking to discuss this with a lawyer.
That’s a difficult question, and ultimately depends on assessing the unique conditions of your claim, which cannot be done by an automated calculator. According to the All-Industry Research Advisory Council (ARAC), a typical personal injury case without an attorney settles for $3,262, while a case with an attorney will re-coup $11,939 – that’s over 3.5 times more money in your pocket.
It’s advised that you not settle until meeting with our personal injury team. It is likely the insurance company’s offer is well below what you truly deserve. If you accept the settlement and you later need further medical treatment or are unable to work due to your injuries, your settlement and waiver agreement can prevent you from getting additional compensation.
Even though you may not be at fault for the accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will not pay for your medical bills, nor your property damage, until they complete their own liability and damage evaluation. Until then, you must make payment on medical costs associated with your accident or, have your health insurance pay them while your case is underway. It’s important to make sure that all of your medical providers bill your health insurance.

I was involved in another accident while my first case was still pending. I spoke to my wonderful lawyer Glenda De Guzman and her awesome assistant, Jennifer. They helped and guided me through this whole process – easy peasy. They made me feel like I’m not alone in this and they were always a call away. I would recommend them 1000 times over anyone else! Thank you guys again for everything.
You gave me my confidence that there are great and loyal lawyers.See Full Testimonial
I attended a funeral and was hit by a driver who was speeding. While recovering and putting my trust in a lawyer to be my advocate and representative, in return they said they could not represent me because I was at fault. I was crushed. The question I asked myself was “why do bad things always happen to good people?” In this case I cried while at my appointment and then began to search for any lawyer in the Bay Area that could help me. All six attorneys [I contacted] said they could not help. I called Dunnion Law and cried myself to them. They said not to worry and that they would gladly take care of me. I want to say thank you to lawyer, Tara, and the Dunnion Law team! You say what you mean, and mean what you say! You truly are the definition of “I got you!” You go above and beyond and helped me not only prove and win my case, but you also gave me my confidence that there are great and loyal lawyers. There is no lawyer team like you! I love you all, and thank you for treating my case with love before dismissing me like the others did. My favorite lawyer, Tara, is # 1 in my book. Feeling lost? Vulnerable? Go get a Dunnion Law attorney! They have your back and your best interests from Day 1.

I needed a lawyer, as I was surfing the web and watching TV, the Dunnion Law commercial came on. I gave them a call and they have been working with us ever since then. They are like family. Whenever I have a question or concern I can reach out to them, no questions asked. The staff is amazing. I have worked closely with Glenda De Guzman and Jennifer. Dunnion Law was a great choice to add to our family. Thank you all for all the hard work and time you have given us.
I never felt rushed . . . and always had the feeling she genuinely cared about my injuries.View Full Testimonial
I give Dunnion Law a 5-star review, but the person who deserves all the credit is Tara Delja. My expectations were constantly exceeded throughout the time that we worked together. In my opinion, the most important quality for an attorney is their font of knowledge. Tara clearly had lots of experience with cases like mine, and I deeply appreciated her straightforward manner. What really set her apart, though, was her kind attitude. Though I was mindful not to waste her time by providing unrelated details, I never felt rushed during our conversations and always had the feeling that she genuinely cared about my injuries. The cherry on as top was a settlement that ensured I would have all the medical treatment I needed. I can’t thank her enough!
These guys are the best at what they do.See Full Testimonial
These guys are the best at what they do. This was my first time ever having to deal with a car accident. I was really unsure of how to handle the whole thing so I went on Yelp, found these guys and they lived up to the reviews. They were so caring about the type of care I was getting with the doctors. They made sure I was comfortable with the care I was receiving and they would check in periodically. They were also really good at explaining the step-by-step process and how things are done. They really made a bad experience into a positive. I would like to say thank you Travis and Cristina and their team. I will recommend them 100% to anyone and everyone if ever I need. Thank you once again.
