What does a ‘personal injury’ lawyer do?

Dunnion Law practices personal injury law exclusively, which means we handle claims that involve injuries resulting from someone else’s negligence. Specifically, we handle motor vehicle accidents (crashes), slip and fall injuries, dog bites, workplace injuries, pedestrian accidents, wrongful death and bad faith cases. According to the Insurance Research Council (IRC), individuals represented by an attorney resolved their cases more quickly, and obtained settlements 3.5 times or more than their counterparts who did not have a lawyer.

On very rare occasions, we will take a medical malpractice or assault case if it overlaps into personal injury; however, this occurs very infrequently. We consider it our mission to recoup the maximum value for you and your loved ones. To do this, it is important that you contact a law firm that focuses solely on personal injury law, and can be there for you throughout the entire process.

As personal injury lawyers, we are proud of our record of recovering more than $800 million for clients, and successfully leading thousands of California personal injury clients through the legal wilderness. We can walk you through any circumstance if you have been injured in any way through the negligence of another individual.

For property damage only, assault, or other non-personal injury claims (termination, libel, slander, wills and estates, etc.), we recommend hiring an attorney who regularly handles those type of cases.
