Auto Accidents

Car accidents can be a nightmare, leaving you with injuries that can negatively affect the rest of your life. The burden of medical expenses, physical pain, and consequential lack of work can leave an emotional and financial toll that can be devastating for you and your family.

With William L. Paulsen & Associates, we fight to save you from this burden

We provide the experienced, personalized service to ease you of the weight from your injury claim. From the moment you hire us until the end of your case, we will eagerly pursue and handle your claim so you only have to focus on what’s important, your health!


For years, our dedicated team of skilled lawyers, compassionate paralegals, and highly trained legal staff has been making a difference in the lives of accident victims. We act as a support system for our clients, making every step of the recovery process easier and less stressful for them.

When you were not at fault, you should not be forced to pay for their mistakes. An experienced car accident attorney from our firm will document the losses you have suffered, fight for every penny from the insurance company.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may demand compensation for:

  • Emergency medical treatment after the accident
  • Medical billing for follow-up care
  • Surgery and hospitalization costs
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Medication costs
  • Future anticipated health care expenses related to your injuries
  • Lost income
  • Reduced earning capacity for the future
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Wrongful death damages related to the loss of a loved one


The answer to that question is a difficult one to answer, and is on a case-by-case basis. Some factors we take into consideration are the extent of injuries, amount of rehabilitation, future medical expenses, current pain levels, and other factors which may affect the valuation of your claim. To put it frankly, it will take time to understand how your injuries have affected you, and will continue to affect you in the future, that is why it is difficult to come up with a figure. However, this does not mean that we don’t know the general value of your case, or what you should expect from a settlement.

Although we understand that a quick settlement check may be tempting, it is crucial that we do a thorough evaluation of your losses, then give you the options based on your case. In doing so you are not left with unexpected financial burdens in the future. You can rest assured that we are looking out for your future, and want what is best for you and your family!


Being injured in a car accident is scary enough, but learning that the other driver did not have insurance or did not have enough coverage in their policy increases the complexity of your case. Our Orange County and Los Angeles car accident attorneys will fight to protect your interests where the other person who injured you was uninsured or underinsured:

If you are injured by a car driven by an uninsured driver, we can open a claim for you under your Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage, should you have this coverage. This coverage protects you and your family when you are injured by a person who does not have auto insurance, or their coverage required by law was not enough to cover your claim.

If you are injured by an insured driver who does not have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for all your losses in an auto accident, we can also open a claim under your underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage, should you have this coverage.
