Catastrophic Injury Attorneys



Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. I believe in personal attention. Taking the time to get to know my Clients and treating them like family is how I operate. I don't take a case and hand it off to another lawyer or staff member.

As a licensed California attorney, I am committed to empowering my Clients to make educated decisions about their injury matter.

If you have questions that need to be answered regarding your legal rights following an injury, call me. Consultations are always free. In fact, I don't charge a dime unless we recovery money on your behalf.

Nobody ever expects to get hurt. However, life is messy and unexpected events can happen at any moment. If you were hurt because of someone else's negligence, you have the right to seek compensation through a personal injury claim.

A personal injury claim can result from many different incidents, including the following:

Insurance companies want to ensure your compensation is kept to a minimum, regardless of the nature of your injuries.

An injury while riding in an Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare service presents unique challenges.

Flesh and bone has little defense against thousands of pounds of steel moving at speed when a driver fails to do the right thing.

Slip & Fall
Falling due to the dangerous condition cause by a property owner's lack of maintenance can cause serious injury.

Dog Bite
California has special laws to hold the owners of dogs accountable for the devestating injury caused by dog bites.

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to serious injuries and deaths. Injuries such as broken necks, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injuries are common.

Motorists are supposed to share the road, but when a distracted driver pilots 2,000 lbs of steel into a bicyclist, the results are devestating every time.

Wrongful Death
When a person dies due to the negligence of another, family members may bring forth a wrongful death lawsuit.

Brain Injury
Brain injury caused by someone's negligence can occur in a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall accident, or as a pedestrian walking on a sidewalk or crosswalk.


"Calkins law firm really helped me out after my accident. They were able to get me medical help and a settlement extremely fast. Their service was very professional and I'll gladly recommend them to anyone in need of legal advice."

"David was hands on from the first day I contacted him. We did business for 6 months, and not once did he leave me wondering or worried about anything. He was always first to contact me with everything. It's like a question would pop and he just knew I'd be asking soon, and a call or text would come through. But what I appreciate most is that he felt like a person ya know? Very kind,very attentive, he'd listen, and he didn't make me feel small for not knowing something, and y'all I had A LOT of questions. He'd ask about my day and make sure I was okay before getting to the business side of of everything. Just an all around good energy kind of person. As a lawyer, he cares. You can feel it. If you're looking for a good lawyer, 10/10. I highly recommend David. Will be working with him moving forward, for always, all the time. Thank you David. I appreciate you more than you know. Thank you for being a good person."

David Calkins is beyond an exceptional civil lawyer. What makes David a stand out Attorney is that he is sharp, creative, and very professional. We hired David for my parent's high-value property insurance claim. The insurance company was unresponsive and trying to find ways to limit their liability. David and his firm not only did not give up - but produced smart legal means to pressure the Insurance company to multiply their offer for resolution. Since this experience, we've recommended David Calkins to many friends and family. Thank you David once again, we appreciate having your brilliant mind (and friendly staff) on our side!

"I called in on a Saturday...talked directly to an attorney and had a great consultation within minutes. He listened, gave me great advice and helped me understand my options. I would definitely recommend this firm."

If I could give David from 10 stars I would. I originally reached out just to talk to someone to see if they could even help me with my difficult issue I was having with my car insurance company. David called me back personally right away and was so kind and very informative. I honestly reached out to a few other lawyers because I had no idea what I was doing and in the end my gut told me retain David. So I did and I couldn't have chosen a better attorney to represent me. He made me feel comfortable and most importantly confident. He was always great with keeping in touch with me and giving me words of encouragement throughout the horrible process that my insurance company put me through to settle my case. In the end, we came out victorious and got the insurance to settle the case in my favor. I truly believe if I didn't have David on my side representing me that I wouldn't have gotten my case settled in my favor. I can't thank David enough for his professionalism and more importantly his understanding and kindness. If you're looking for an attorney to help you, don't look any further because I promise you will not be disappointed with David. Thank you again David!
