Experienced Car Accident Lawyers
Each day, thousands of people throughout California have their lives impacted by car accidents. In the worst cases, these victims end up facing life-lasting injuries. If you have been injured in an accident, you should act quickly to protect your rights and improve the strength of your claim.
Fighting for Maximum Compensation after Ontario Car Accidents
Following an accident, one of the biggest challenges faced by victims are medical bills, which can quickly pile up. Besides medical bills, there are many additional costs that add up. Some of the other damages might include:
- The costs of future medical care
- Lost wages, and loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
While it can be difficult to predict all damages and accident might cause, a seasoned attorney can fight for the highest amount recoverable under the law.
Types of Ontario Car Accidents
While no two accident cases are the same, our lawyers have experience handling all types of car accident claims. Some of the most common types of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving accidents, which occur when a driver’s attention is diverted from the road. Attempting to use a cell phone while driving is one of the most common causes of these accidents.
- Accidents involving impaired driving. Most people know that they should not operate a vehicle when intoxicated from alcohol or drugs, but each year countless numbers end up injured by intoxicated drivers.
- Speeding. The odds of ending up in a deadly car accident increase substantially when motorists speed.

Get Help with the Insurance Company
Insurance companies focus on making the greatest profit possible and they rely on various tricks and tactics to settle car accident claims for the lowest amount. The carriers realize that you have expenses and are under a great deal of stress and they will try to take advantage of that situation with a lowball offer.
Get All the Compensation You Deserve
The insurance company hopes that you will agree to the low amount quickly, as that will cut off any claim later on if injuries get worse (or the claim gets bigger). As a result, before you discuss settlement with an insurance carrier, it is advisable to hire a personal injury attorney.
Attorney John Paul-Serrao helped us to win our case against the insurance company after we were involved in a traffic accident where our car was rear ended, we tried to handle it ourselves with the insurance company and they did not want to cooperate with us, so we hired Mr. Serrao and he was able to get us a settlement above with the insurance company was willing to pay. I would highly recommend him.
I had the pleasure of working a very large scale drug case with Mr. Serrao, representing co-defendants. Mr. Serrao was a pleasure to work with. Highly skilled and very aggressive in his advocacy on his client’s behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Serrao for anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.
John-Paul is a superb attorney. He was my mentor when I was in law school, and now as an attorney I still go to him for advice on complex cases. When my brother required representation I referred him to John-Paul. That is how highly I think of JP as an attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation.
Occasionally you meet another attorney who is so impressive both personally and professionally that you want to be affiliated with them in any way you can both personally and professionally. That is how I feel about John-Paul. I not only consider him one of the finest attorneys I know, but I now proudly call him my friend. He is among the very best.
John-Paul took my civil case when no one else would because other lawyers didn’t have confidence in my daughter who has special needs to testify, if needed. John-Paul won her case against the school district without a jury because he cared about my child, believed she was honest and deserved justice. He still doesn’t mind taking my calls whenever I have a question regarding her case.
John-Paul is an extremely effective criminal defense attorney. The one thing that makes him stand out from other defense attorneys is that he talks to his clients to learn the circumstances surrounding their incident and then he makes a forceful and articulate argument in defense of his clients. I recommend my clients to John-Paul when they are in need of a criminal defense attorney because I know he will stand up for them.
Mr. Serrao worked on my DUI charge earlier this year and all I can say is WOW! Not only did he keep me updated with the case but his knowledge of the process helped calm my nerves, which was very important to me. He showed care for me as a client and I can’t thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a quality criminal defense attorney.
John-Paul is well known in our community as a smart and effective criminal defense lawyer who is sensitive to his clients’ situations and responsive to their needs. I refer my clients to him with confidence when they need help with the criminal justice system.
