Bay Area Personal Injury Lawyers

Watch Video About Firm

Danko Meredith represents ordinary people injured due to the fault of others.  We take on governmental entities and large corporations who, by choosing profits over safety, cause our clients burn, spinal cord, orthopedic, or brain injuries. Many of our clients turn to us after having lost family members or loved ones.

What Types of Cases Do We Accept?

Most of our cases involve injuries resulting from car accidents, explosions and fires, plane crashes, or dangerous products or machinery.

Those who caused our client’s harm are typically powerful and well-financed, with the resources to hire an army of lawyers to oppose us.  We’re used to being out-numbered, but we’re never out-lawyered.

Many clients come to us from the Bay Area, but others come from throughout California and beyond. We accept our cases on a contingency fee, meaning there is no charge for fees or costs unless we win a recovery.

There are amazing lawyers out there—but none can compare to you guys. You are the whole package.

Why Choose a Trial Lawyer?

Most clients would prefer to settle confidentially, out of court. But the quickest path to a fair out-of-court settlement is to hire a lawyer with a reputation for going to trial and winning. That’s because lawyers without a trial record aren’t taken seriously by large corporations or insurance companies.

It’s always your choice whether to settle your case privately or to take it to trial. But by hiring a trial lawyer with a reputation for winning, it’s more likely that you will be offered a fair settlement out of court. And if you do decide to take your case to trial, you won’t have to start over and find a new attorney—you can be confident in the one you have.

Damages in a Personal Injury Case

We can help secure compensation for:

  • Medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and the loss of future earning potential
  • Physical pain and mental suffering
  • If the defendant’s conduct was sufficiently egregious, punitive damages.

Our goal is obtain for you the compensation you need to move forward with your life. Along the way, we explain to you the process in plain language so that you are always in a position to make sound, well-informed decisions.
