Accidents happen in an instant, but their effects can last a lifetime. Give yourself the winning advantage by working with The Wallace Firm.
Nobody ever leaves the house expecting to get hurt, but that’s just what happens to millions of people every year. Negligent actions by people or companies can have a profound impact on the lives of others and dealing with the fallout of an accident is always an overwhelming experience.
THE WALLACE PROCESS
First Steps After an Accident
When an accident of any kind occurs, the first thing you need to do is make sure you’re out of harm’s way. If you’re able to move, move to a safe area so that you won’t be injured any further. Also, try to note as many things as possible at the scene of the accident. Take pictures of the scene and get the names of any witnesses to your accident.
Seek Medical Treatment
When you’ve been injured in an accident, getting medical treatment needs to be your top priority. Even if you don’t think you’ve been injured, it’s still important to get checked by a doctor because, in some cases, the symptoms of an injury can take time to show.
Not only is it important for you to take care of yourself, getting medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident makes it harder for liable parties to deny responsibility for your injuries.
Report the Accident
After an accident, don’t forget to make sure all necessary parties are notified. This can vary depending on the nature of your accident. For example, in car accident cases, you would need to report the accident to the police, the California DMV, and your insurance company. Or if you have a slip and fall accident in a store, you should report the accident to store management.

Slip & Fall Case
The Wallace Firm successfully represented a client in their lawsuit against Leading Insurance Company, LTD over damages caused by a slip and fall accident.
I want to thank Mr. Wallace and his staff for their hard work on my case. They went above and beyond all of my expectations and were so thoughtful throughout my case to ensure they left nothing out and that my case was handled with supreme care. I am a Navy veteran and they showed me the utmost respect. If I ever had another case, The Wallace Firm would be my first phone call.
Professional, kind and dedicated! Thank you putting your hearts into my case. #forevergrateful #wallacewins
I just received word from your office that your team settled my case for more than what we originally discussed, and obviously I could not be happier. Thank you for taking on my case, I truly appreciate all of your hard work. You and your team have been an absolute pleasure to work with this past year. Thank you again for everything.
The Wallace Firm provided me with excellent legal services after I was struck by a motor vehicle. I’m very pleased with the settlement that Brad and his team were able to negotiate and secure. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs an attorney after being injured.
Need To Know
Verdicts and settlements for personal injury cases can vary greatly depending on many different factors, including how severe your injuries are and how they impact your life. For example, some people may have injuries that require in-home medical care or assistance around the house while others may still be able to live independently. To get a better idea of the damages you are entitled to in your case, consult a personal injury lawyer.
Accidents happen without warning and when they occur, the last thing you should have to worry about is whether or not you can afford to hire a lawyer to help you. At The Wallace Firm, your initial consultation is free and we work on a contingency basis, which means you only pay if you win.
When you’ve been injured in an accident, insurance adjusters may seem sympathetic and caring at first but don’t forget that they have a vested interest in paying out as little as possible and may be looking for anything, no matter how small, to use against you. If an insurance adjuster contacts you, you can tell them to contact your lawyer instead of contacting you directly.
