Why Choose Award-Winning Attorneys for Your Personal Injury Case

Posted By Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP || 14-May-2018

Imagine this, you’re driving along the road and out of nowhere, you are struck by another vehicle. The other driver was acting negligently behind the while, swerving, speeding, and constantly reaching for their phone. What happens next?

Unfortunately, many people each year encounter this type of situation and are left dealing with numerous hardships including physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial struggles. It’s important for them to recognize how to get through this type of situation.

Before going through the legal matters that arise, injury victims should speak with legal counsel to better understand what their rights are, what options they have, and how to protect themselves. One thing you may want to look for is whether or not a firm has received numerous awards as a result of legal skills.

At Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP, our team puts together strong legal counsel and for that, we have been awarded numerous times for our skills and reputation. Here are some of the reasons you should look for an award-winning team:

What It Means to Be Award Winning

When a law firm has won various awards, it goes a long way in displaying their legal ability and their history of success. There are so many things to consider, such as the respect of peers and clients alike, as well as ability in the courts.

For instance, selection and inclusion in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum® is awarded if and when an attorney is able to recover a million dollars on behalf of seriously injured parties. This is just one award that our team of Northern California personal injury lawyers have been so grateful to receive.

When you hire an award-winning firm, you are getting more than just strong legal representation. You’re getting peace of mind and confidence that helps you get through these types of situations in a much easier manner.

Award winning means that there are a number of other legal professionals, judges, attorneys, and other peers who respect a firm for their ability to help clients succeed. We are proud every time we receive awards and recognition for our legal prowess.

How These Attorneys Help You

Injury victims are often in some of the most difficult situations, taking on large corporations with teams of legal professionals all looking to minimize your claim. Instead of helping victims as most insurance companies should, they work to put fault on the victim.

By hiring an award-winning team, you can feel confidence in your choice to protect your rights. Typically, winning awards means that the firm has plenty of experience representing injured parties in personal injury matters.

With that experience comes the ability to understand the tactics the defendant may use in your case and the ways in which they’ll attempt to minimize your claim. It is a big help if you know what the defendant will try and say to prove that their client is not guilty of the negligent action.

This allows you to put together strong evidence with the necessary information to prove that fault should be placed on the defendant. Being award-winning attorneys affords us this ability and the ability to seek compensation in an effective manner.

What are Our Awards?

As a result of a strong commitment and dedication to our clients and their rights in times of need, we have been recognized with numerous awards and achievements. These include:
