Silverthorne Attorneys began our practice in 2012. In that time we have been able to obtain multiple seven-figure settlements for our clients who have been injured in car accidents, dog bites, slip-and-falls, and families who have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another. As Cypress, CA injury lawyers, we know how difficult it can be to begin the process of finding someone who will listen to you. Contact us to discuss the details of your case. Consultations are free!
We Work on a Contingency Fee Basis
After suffering from injuries due to the negligent actions of another, the last thing you should have to worry about is how to pay your bills. By working on a contingency fee basis, Silverthorne Attorneys will take your case without requiring payment of fees upfront. When you’ve been hurt by another person’s actions, you deserve to have your medical care and other losses compensated. Furthermore, it takes an experienced Cypress personal injury attorney to make sure that you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Additionally, because we work on a contingency fee, we never require payment unless we win your case. That means that you will not have to pay us anything if we are unable to win your case. This allows you to pursue your claim without worrying about legal fees.

How to Handle a Car Accident
There are so many things to do after your car accident. One of the first things is to check yourself for injuries first and then check to see if your passengers and any others involved in the accident are suffering from injuries. After you have done this, contact the police to have the come down to the scene to take a report. Even if no one seems to be suffering from serious injuries, you want to make sure the police come down to get a report of the details of the accident.
Always Report Incidents That Result in Injury
Whenever you or your loved ones are injured due to the actions of someone else, it is very important that you immediately contact the proper authorities. This allows an official report to be made through the police department. You should make sure that you write down the report number and contact information of the department where copies of the report can be obtained. If you are unable to get the police report number right away, don’t worry. A part of our process is to order copies of the police report from the reasoning station.
An official police report that confirms the circumstances of your accident is of vital importance to our Cypress personal injury lawyers to pursue a case involving negligent actions. Especially car accident cases. While it certainly is not the only document needed for your case, it is a very useful one because it shows that an official authority saw the scene and confirmed your story.
Important Documents to Your Case
If you are unable to collect the important documents needed for your case due to your injuries, we are happy to assist you with this process. We often help our clients gather important pieces of evidence to support their case, and there are certain pieces of evidence that tend to be the most useful. Here are some of the items that are helpful to your personal injury case:
- Police Report – gives a professional analysis of the scene;
- Medical Records – documents that details your injuries;
- Lab Work – documents condition through relevant scans and other tests;
- Photographs – provides scene and injury details, if available;
- HR Work Attendance Record – shows work missed due to injury;
- Pay Stubs – shows amount of lost income;
- Medical Bills – documents costs of medical care to address injuries;
- Witness Contact Information – allows for third-party statements to be collected
The Cypress car accident attorneys in our office will be able to use these documents to help get you the compensation you need to get your life back on track after a automotive collision. Therefore, the more evidence that supports your case, the better the odds of receiving a sufficient settlement that allows you to recover not only physically and emotionally, but financially as well.
Dealing with Insurance Adjusters is Stressful
Whenever a victim tries to deal with the at-fault party’s insurance directly, it quickly becomes a game of cat and mouse. The insurance companies do their best to reduce their payouts. They are, after all a business and their goal is to save and make money. This unfortunately means that they have many tricks at their disposal to cheat you out of getting the compensation you deserve.
Since they try to record conversations, they will be looking for any excuse to deny your claim or minimize their responsibility. This is why we always advise our clients to not speak with insurance adjusters. However, if they contact you without our knowledge, they have to tell you that they are recording the call. Once they do, tell them to contact your attorney. You never want to speak with then on a recorded line. Expressions of regret over a serious accident can easily be twisted to make it seem like you bear some of the guilt, and the severity of your injuries may be questioned if you forget certain details. The best course of action is to have your Cypress personal injury attorney handle all contact with them so that they will not be able to use anything you say against you.
Our staff has years of experience handling insurance adjusters, and you can rest easy with us handling your case. We want you to focus on getting your health back, so we will handle the legal hoops and tough negotiations for you. This allows you to focus on you and your family instead of back-and-forth hassles with the insurance company.
A Quick Youth Safety Alert
There are few cases more emotionally taxing for any compassionate injury lawyer in Cypress to pursue than the type involving the death or injury of a child. We want to remind you to keep your children, and the children of others, safe.
Always prevent avoidable tragedies by using modern safety gear and household safety tips. Seat belts, life vests, helmets, and other such items should always be worn during relevant activities. Also, make sure that your home is safe by ensuring that young people don’t have access to dangerous cleaning products or other chemicals, nicotine products, plastic bags or other choking hazards, nutritional supplements or medications, drowning risks (such as laundry buckets), and other dangerous exposures.
Finally, when you are operating a motor vehicle, make sure to watch out for distracted children who may enter the roadway at crosswalks or other locations. In Cypress, it is best to be particularly cautious when driving in neighborhoods near schools like Clara J. King Elementary School and AE Arnold Elementary School. You should also be cautious near areas like Oak Knoll Park and other recreational areas, parking lots where cars make visibility of short children difficult, and local attractions known for attracting crowds of youths.
