In an instant, a car accident can dramatically change your life

We’ve seen it time and time again. You may be the most conscientious driver in the world, but others are not always as diligent and as mindful as you are. Whether it is a distracted driver who is texting or checking emails, a careless driver speeding and making unsafe lane changes without regard for the safety of others, or someone who is simply not paying attention, the consequences of their actions are visited on you and your family.

Every 14 seconds, someone is injured in a car accident in the United States, with over 3,000 auto accident deaths occurring annually in the state of California alone. The injuries suffered can range from soft-tissue pain or headaches, all the way to more severe, life altering injuries such as paralysis, amputated limbs, broken bones or brain injury.

If this happens, it’s important to talk to an experienced team of personal injury attorneys like Phillips and Pelly. Our team of dedicated car accident injury lawyer’s will ensure that you receive compensation when eligible, for medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Office Appointments Or We Come to You
Generally, the other insurer is looking to do one of two things:

1. Obtain information from you that could potentially decrease your final compensation.

2. Offer an immediate settlement that is lower than what you may be owed, in exchange for signing a release to your claim.

Don’t fall for these common insurance tactics. Once retained, we immediately notify the insurer of our Firm’s representation on your behalf. They are not permitted to call you once this is done. We will take over handling all of the details, negotiating, paperwork, forms and document filings on your behalf. You only need focus on healing and getting better.

Should I represent myself? Why do I need an injury lawyer?

That’s a fair question. The short answer, is that although some car accident claims are simple to handle, there are others requiring extensive litigation skills and a vast knowledge base that only experienced San Diego car accident lawyers like Phillips and Pelly are able to handle. Studies have consistently shown that personal injury claims represented by a skilled injury attorney receive much higher compensation than those claimants who choose to represent themselves.

That’s why the insurance company will attempt to settle with you directly, and as quickly as possible. Car accident litigation, especially those resulting in serious injuries, require reconstruction experts, medical doctors and the like. It is strongly advised that you seek professional representation.

The Consultation is free, and our no fee until we win guarantee means that our fees are based on a percentage of the amount we recover on your behalf.

The leading causes of car accidents are no surprise

The top five most common causes of car accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving and running of red lights.

When you or a loved one are involved in a car accident, be certain that you are fully aware of your legal rights. Experienced attorneys like Oliver Pelly and John Phillips can advise if you are eligible for compensation. Whether the accident was minor or something more serious, seeking the advice of trained professionals can help you to understand the entire scope of your right of recovery.

No one ever expects to get into an accident. As a matter of fact, many are responsible drivers – but it only takes one person speeding recklessly down the freeway, texting or weaving in and out of traffic, to cause an accident resulting in injury. If this happens to you, you should not have to suffer because of it.

If you have been hurt because someone else was driving unsafely, our team of attorneys are available to carefully evaluate your case to determine if you are eligible for compensation.

    You can go with the catchy jingles that you see on TV as I did, and become just another client. Or you can go with a firm that treats you like family, and sets the bar high by fighting for the maximum payment from your injuries. Very impressed and glad I made the switch! Thanks for everything I truly appreciate you.

    I worked with Ashley LaFontaine and she was absolutely wonderful in getting me the care I needed. When things with the doctors got hung up she helped get things moving. She was super communicative and kept me in the loop through every step of the process. Set expectations from beginning to end very well and exceed my expectations!

    I met Oliver Pelly by happenstance and after I grilled him a couple of times, I decided to hire his firm. After being my initial POC, I began working with Blake Woodhall. Both were standup guys, and Blake kept me in-the-loop the entire time. He was patient when explaining the process and going over details and understanding of my situation and concerns. Everything concluded better than I could have expected, and Blake acted as an excellent buffer to keep everything at bay. I would highly recommend Blake, Oliver and their firm for any auto accident cases.

    Going through my accident was a very difficult and emotional experience. The process of choosing the right law firm can be overwhelming. Choosing Phillips and Pelly was the best decision I could have made. They are extremely knowledgeable and I trusted Oliver’s expertise throughout the entire process. He was very responsive. Anytime I would have a question, including nights and weekends, Oliver would get back to me right away. I would recommend Phillips and Pelly for anyone going through a similar situation. They really are the best.

    I have enjoyed my experience with this law firm. Alecia Gordon represented me with my case and throughout this entire ordeal has been extremely supportive and understanding of my own lack of experience and knowledge of legal matters. She is not only kind and considerate but very intelligent and professional. The paralegal team also deserve kudos as they were always there to assist and assure me of progress and necessary document completions. All in all, I would highly recommend this firm for personal injury claims.

    Matt was very helpful in settling a case for my son that was a passenger in an automobile that crashed into a home. My son suffered cracked ribs, a concussion amongst other injuries. Matt was helpful explaining everything to us as this was a 1st dealing with anything like this for our family. It took time and patience as the other party was reluctant to settle. In the end my son had his ambulance, medical bills and a small amount of recovered monies all paid out. Great man, lawyer and law firm .Highly reccomended

The lowdown on insurance companies. It’s just business…

Insurance companies are a business. That means, their primary focus is not on you. It’s on maximizing revenues and minimizing expenses. The insurance companies are highly motivated to limit their payout for injury claims. The objective is to entice you to settle for a fraction of what they may actually owe you.

Car accident victims and the families of those who have died in car accidents face a challenging uphill battle, which is further complicated by complex California insurance laws and legal issues.

If you are involved in a car accident in San Diego, chances are the insurance company will call to advise what you are entitled to under the policy.

Do NOT accept anything or sign anything from the insurance company without contacting an attorney first. Phillips and Pelly are experienced San Diego Car Accident Attorneys with vast expertise in navigating through the complicated insurance claims landscape. They will handle your entire case from start to finish, allowing you to focus on the most important task at hand….healing and getting better.
