Napa Personal Injury Lawyers

Were you injured in an accident? Our Napa personal injury lawyers are here to help. Wells Call has helped accident victims in Napa County for decades and has a strong track record of getting results. 

We have two main goals when we work on your case. The first is to help you move forward with your medical care. The second is to aggressively pursue a settlement.  When someone else causes an accident, the cost shouldn’t fall on your shoulders. 

To talk with us about your situation and how we can help, contact us online or call 707-273-1601. We offer free consultations, and we take cases on a contingency fee basis. There are no upfront fees. 

Should You Hire a Lawyer?

There’s a big difference between a fender bender and a crash that causes serious injuries. An attorney should review any incident that caused you or a loved one harm.

By talking with a Napa personal injury lawyer, you get clear advice on whether you have a legal claim. You also get a better picture of what your claim might be worth.

Partnering with an attorney is the best way to maximize your compensation. Whether you were hurt in a car accident or under other circumstances, another person or business’s insurance company isn’t on your side.

You can go through the insurance process yourself, but don’t expect any handholding. That insurer will do what it can to limit or deny your compensation.

Another benefit of hiring an attorney, which can’t be overstated, is having help in the upcoming months. We deal with the insurance claim process and personal injury litigation regularly.

We know California law, what steps to take, how to talk to insurers, and when to go to court. While we deal with the paperwork, you can focus on getting better.

Wells Call Tackles a Wide Range of Personal Injury Cases

With a population of 137,744, Napa County is tucked into 789 square miles of Northern California. It’s well-known for its wines, beautiful scenery, and tourism.

Millions of people visit the region each year for weddings, romantic getaways, and wine tastings. This influx of people can contribute to serious accidents, though locals often find themselves in difficult circumstances, too.

Our personal injury attorneys in Napa have years of experience working on claims involving: 

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Drunk Driving Crashes
  • Uber and Lyft Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Unsafe Property Accidents
  • Slip and Falls
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Wrongful Deaths 

Whatever has happened, we recommend you give us a call. We’ll listen to your story and advise you on your options under California law. You might be entitled to pursue an insurance claim or file a lawsuit. 

We know you might be from out of state or learn the other person was only visiting. This complication shouldn’t hold you back from pursuing compensation.

We can fight for you to receive a settlement or court award in California, whether you or the other party is from somewhere else.

Common Injuries

Our attorneys have seen it all, from moderate to catastrophic accident injuries in Napa. No matter the severity of your injuries, we will pursue the most compensation possible. 

Some of the most common injuries we see include: 

  • Broken Bones
  • Severe Lacerations
  • Muscle, Tendon, and Ligament Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

When you’re hurt in an accident, you need the best medical care possible. We help you access top medical specialists. We know the medical bills will start to arrive, and that’s tough. Even with health insurance, the bills can be astronomical.

We negotiate with medical providers to reduce the amount you owe, create payment plans or liens, and help you avoid collections when you can’t pay right away.

We Help Injury Victims Recover Compensation

When we take on your case, our goal is to win you full and fair compensation for: 

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Property Damage
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced Earning Capacity
  • Reduced Quality of Life
  • Loss of Consortium 

No two cases are exactly the same, which is why you shouldn’t rely on information online to determine the value of your claim.

We carefully add up your economic injuries, like lost wages, medical bills, and other out-of-pocket expenses.

Then, we take a close look at your non-economic damages, including your pain and suffering, which can be a big part of a settlement.

We research outcomes from similar cases to yours and gather evidence to prove the severity of your injuries to an insurer or court.

We care about every client we work with, and always fight for maximum compensation. We have recovered more $500 million for our clients since 1984.    

FAQs

When you or a relative has been hurt in an accident, you have a lot of questions. We are here to answer them. 

How Do I Pay My Medical Bills?

You are responsible for your medical bills while your case is pending. We recommend you use your health insurance first. Then, talk with us about negotiating with your doctors’ offices. We might be able to reduce the amount you owe.

Also, some providers will agree to place a lien on your settlement, which means your bills are put on hold. Our goal is always to help you address accident-related bills and avoid collections.

What Can I Do About My Lost Wages?

We will work with your employer to verify how much income you’ve lost while recovering from your accident. We include this amount in the damages we demand during your claim. The goal is for the other party to reimburse you for your lost wages. 

Will I Have to Go to Court?

It depends. A majority of personal injury claims are settled through insurance. It might benefit your case to file a personal injury lawsuit. We can use the discovery process to investigate further what happened.

But just because you file doesn’t mean your case will go to trial. If litigation is necessary, we handle all of the paperwork and court appearances.

What if the Other Person Doesn’t Have Insurance?

In 2015, the Insurance Information Institute estimated 15.2% of motorists in California were uninsured. It’s a serious problem.

California insurers are required to offer you uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage (UMC/UIM), which can help you in this situation. Without insurance coverage, you should talk with a lawyer about filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

What if I Can’t Afford an Attorney?

Everyone who has been hurt in an accident should have legal representation. That is why we work on a contingency fee basis.

We don’t charge a retainer or hourly fees or make you pay the court costs upfront. Instead, you only pay us a fee once we win a settlement or court verdict for you.
