Car Accidents

If you have been severely injured in a Northern California car accident, please contact the Palo Alto car accident attorneys at Ziff & Cohn as soon as possible. As experienced car accident attorneys in Cupertino, we will act promptly to preserve key evidence that will allow you to prove both what happened in the accident and the full extent of the harm that you suffered.

Car accidents can cause broken bones, brain injuries, neck and back injuries, and spinal cord injuries that can even lead to paralysis or other severe disabilities. We understand how damaging such accidents can be, both to individuals and to entire families. We do our utmost to protect our clients and to maximize the compensation they receive.

Our initial consultation is free. If you become our client, our office will take over the investigation of your case, while you concentrate on recovering your physical and emotional well-being. If necessary, we will assist you in finding appropriate medical specialists to treat you. Our Cupertino and Palo Alto car accident lawyers will work to make arrangements with your medical care providers to wait for payment until your case is resolved through settlement or trial.

Our experienced attorneys handle all car accident cases on a contingency basis, which means that you pay NO LEGAL FEES UNLESS YOU WIN. Once you become our client, we also advance the case and litigation costs—and you have to reimburse us only if you receive a monetary recovery.

Our Cupertino car accident attorneys are ready to use our experience in handling California car accident cases to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries. We will investigate every possible contributing cause of your accident—including driver negligence, hazardous road conditions, negligent maintenance work by a mechanic, defective products, and more. We will pursue every possible source of compensation, and we will use our professional skills as we negotiate with insurance adjusters—including, if necessary, those of your own insurance company (in cases where the other driver was uninsured or underinsured.) As experienced trial attorneys, we are also well prepared to take cases to court if necessary.

Some people who are injured in California car accidents accept settlement offers that provide inadequate compensation, simply because they need the money as fast as possible. However, in cases involving catastrophic injuries, the full extent of the resulting harm may not be apparent right away. Accepting an early settlement offer may not be in your best interest. In order to maximize your recovery, while also making sure that your claim is filed within the proper time frame, you should discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney at Ziff & Cohn.

Some people are victimized by car accidents in a different way—by the loss of a loved one. If one of your family members was killed in a car accident, please contact us to discuss the possibility of bringing a wrongful death claim.

In all cases related to car accidents, our initial consultation is FREE. Our office is conveniently located on El Camino Real in Los Altos, California.

Please contact us today by calling our Los Altos office at (650) 329-0851, emailing Harvey L. Ziff and Adrienne Z. Cohn, or filling out and submitting our “Contact Us” form.
