Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Workers’ compensation is a very complex process. It involves substantial paperwork and can require a long, frustrating legal battle when benefits are limited or denied altogether. Many workers and their families simply don’t have the time or resources to handle this by themselves. This is where our firm steps in.The Law Offices of Noel Hibbard is a firm dedicated to helping injured workers throughout Northern California.
Our firm handles serious personal injury and workers’ compensation matters. We represent clients throughout northern California. We are different than other personal injury and workers’ compensation firms because of our background and approach to resolving cases. Mr. Hibbard has a background as an insurance defense attorney and understands not only the strategies used by the insurance company but case value. Our associates also have insurance defense backgrounds and have assistants with chiropractic backgrounds, which provides valuable insight that other firms do not have. We will meet with you and discuss the best options for you and will work together to formulate a strategy to resolve your legal problems. We will properly analyze your case and let you know if it is a case that should be fought. We have a long and successful track record of litigating cases on behalf of bicyclists, motorcycle riders, car drivers and passengers, and pedestrians injured or killed by other negligent drivers. Our firm approaches personal injury cases aggressively by preparing for trial early on. We work closely with experts such as orthopedic surgeons, engineers, life care planners, biomechanical and accident reconstruction experts early on in your case. This allows us to maximize your recovery because we will go to trial if necessary. At our firm, you will always meet with an attorney. While assistants will be working on your file, you will always have an opportunity to meet with an attorney to discuss your case. Our firm will work with you as a team. We treat our clients with respect, compassion and regularly communicate with our clients. All of our personal injury and work injury cases are handled on a contingency basis: meaning, there is no upfront cost to you. All consultations are free of charge. If there is no recovery than you do not owe an attorney fee to us.
We have a team of experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury attorneys and a helpful, friendly staff. We understand that people seek the help of a lawyer to make the process of getting workers’ comp benefits easier, not more difficult. That is why we take on every case ready to make the process as simple and successful as possible.
