The Personal Injury Attorney You Choose Can Make or Break Your Case

With a combined experience of over 50 years, Santa Cruz personal injury lawyers, Brad and Tyson Wiles, have brought thousands of personal injury claims in Santa Cruz County and beyond to conclusion either through trial, arbitration, mediation, or settlement. 

What’s local got to do with it?

We have been voted “Best Personal Injury Attorney in Santa Cruz” three times, and have 28 5-star Yelp reviews and growing. But it’s really our record of winning the maximum allowable compensation for our clients over 90% of the time that makes working with our personal injury firm your best choice. And how do we do that? Being Santa Cruz locals helps. We know the community. We know the streets. We know the local ordinances. And we are also well-known and respected in the community.

But it’s also because we live here in Santa Cruz County (Soquel to be exact) that we care so much. We fight hard for all our clients whether their case is large or small because they are our neighbors. But we also fight hard because Santa Cruz County is our community too. We love helping to make it a safer place for us all.

Together, we have collected millions of dollars in settlements for clients in Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Santa Clara counties and beyond in cases involving car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidentsmotorcycle accidentsbig truck accidentsdog bites, back and spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, wrongful death and more.

I was seriously injured in an accident on Hwy 17. More valuable that the settlement was being able to sleep at night knowing these two were helping me and looking out for my best interest.

I was getting bullied by the insurance people. This father and son team not only made sure I wasn't bullied any more, but they also got me the PT I needed and more. My case was certainly not a money maker for these guys, but they still gave me their best.

This is because dogs are unpredictable. A pet that is submissive to its owner can be aggressive to others.

A personal injury attorney can help you unravel the facts and get compensation when compensation is due.
