Personal Injury



Negligent drivers regularly violate the basic speed law, run stop signs, text while driving causing accidents that are completely avoidable.   Our attorneys protect you, the victim of these poor drivers and ensure that you receive full compensation for all that you have lost.   We collect money for your pain, your inconvenience, your car damage and your long term injuries.    

 No Fee Unless & Until You Recover

Our legal fee is ZERO until your case actually gets you money.  Then the fee is a percentage of your recovery.   We understand that there are many excellent personal injury lawyers in the Walnut Creek area.  We appreciate your time in considering our office and we hope that you choose our law firm to represent you.

Unmatched Personal Injury Experience

Trial Experience Results in Larger Settlements

A personal injury law firm settles most cases without a trial.  You will receive a better settlement when the insurance company lawyers know that your attorney can back up his settlement demands in front of a jury.  Daniel Horowitz' personal injury trials have been in Walnut Creek, Oakland, Stockton, San Francisco and Colusa County.  These include from freeway wrongful death auto crashes, cases against John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek/Concord, motorcycle vs. auto accidents, an elevator death and car accidents from low impact to multi-car crashes with major injuries.
