Bay Area Personal Injury Lawyer

Faithfully Serving Your Community for 30 Years

For more than 30 years, the experienced legal team at Mitchell Law Firm has dedicated itself to representing accident victims throughout California. Led by personal injury attorney Tab Mitchell, the firm passionately pursues justice for those who have been injured or victimized by the negligent or wrongful actions of others.

At Mitchell Law Firm, we make it our goal to see that our clients are fully compensated for the injuries and emotional pain they suffered. Facing a serious accident or losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person can face. Mitchell Law Firm can meet you in your time of greatest need. We're not just here to secure a quick settlement – we're here to restore our clients. That's why our mantra is "Fixing that which is broken, one client at a time."

What kind of compensation can I receive for my injuries?

If you have suffered an injury due to somebody else's negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the following types of damages:

  • Special Compensatory Damages: This can include medical bills, loss of earnings (future and past), cost of future medical care, and more.
  • General Compensatory Damages: This includes compensation for pain and suffering, loss of consortium and mental anguish. (Compensation for these types of damages are restricted in California when it comes to accidents with uninsured drivers or medical malpractice cases).
  • Punitive Damages: Depending on the circumstances, you may also be eligible to receive compensation for punitive damages as well, which seeks to punish particularly egregious behavior by the guilty party.

Dedicated & Affordable Representation

At Mitchell Law Firm, our Bay Area personal injury lawyers advocate for the rights of injured victims. We are completely dedicated to helping you. To express our full commitment to your cause and demonstrate our confidence in our ability to help you, we work on a contingency fee basis. This means our clients won't have to pay for our legal services until after we secure a satisfactory resolution on their behalf.

Personal Injury FAQ:

  • Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?
    • There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
  • How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
    • This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.
  • What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?
    • The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.
  • Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?
    • Yes. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000.
  • How long do I have to file my personal injury claim?
    • According to the California Statute of Limitations (California Code of Civil Procedure § 335.1.), an individual is allowed to file a personal injury lawsuit for up to 2 years after the date of their accident, with the exception of claims against government agencies, which have a 6 month deadline.
  • Do I have to accept the settlement the insurance company offers me?
    • No. In fact, before accepting any settlement that has been offered, you should always consult with a specialized injury attorney in order to determine if the settlement is fair. After accepting a settlement it is impossible to go back and ask for more money, even if you have legitimate reasons in asking for more.
  • Can I still recover compensation for my injuries even if I was partially responsible for the accident?
    • In some cases, yes. However, if you played a role in causing the accident that led to your injury, this may reduce the amount of compensation you are eligible to receive. Contact our injury lawyers to determine if you are still eligible to receive compensation!
