I was in a terrifying accident. I was hit by a car while crossing the street in a cross walk. I was knocked into the air, and my head actually hit the car before I was thrown to the pavement, I was badly hurt, with injuries including a broken collar bone, a concussion and numerous abrasions. Emergency Medical Services took me to the emergency room and I had to spend the night in the hospital. It was a painful injury and it took time to recover.
I knew that I needed someone with experience to handle my case. John P. Burns and his Orange County, CA team knew exactly what to do. They dealt with the insurance company to make sure that I received an outstanding settlement. They also worked with Medicare and saved me the trouble of having to deal with the federal government. They kept me informed every step of the way. I am very pleased with how my case has turned out.
If you’ve been in an accident, then P. John Burns is the attorney that you need. Sherry Kihm, Mission Viejo, CA

I was in a terrible accident. My car was so badly damaged it ended up being a total loss and I suffered neck and back injuries. The insurance company wouldn't treat me fairly and they even tried to say that the accident was partly my fault.
I found attorney John P. Burns on the internet. He and his professional staff helped me with my case. They treated me with courtesy and respect and they forced the insurance company to pay me a fair settlement for my injuries.
Just to make things even better, John Burns made a claim against my own Under-Insured Motorist insurance and he got even more money for me.
I am very glad that I chose John Burns to represent me. No one wants to get hurt in a car accident. If you have been in a personal injury car accident and you need an attorney that will fight hard for you and treat you right, then call John P. Burns.

What an experience it has been. I was rear-ended at high speed by a truck on the freeway. My car was smashed and both my wife and I were both hurt badly. Things only got worse when my own insurance company tried to delay my claim while they “investigated” what had happened.
I said enough is enough. I got out the phone book and found John Burns in the yellow pages. John Burns and his excellent staff got things moving right away. They got a fair settlement for the damage to my vehicle. They also helped me to get the treatment I needed and they got me a fair settlement for my injuries. More that, though, I consider John to be a real friend and it is my pleasure to recommended him to you. If you’ve been in an accident, you need to call John Burns. Greg Deskin, Mission Viejo, CA

I was riding my bicycle on the sidewalk when I was hit by a car coming out of a parking lot. I injured my left hip and knee in the accident. My doctor sent me to physical therapy but that made my pain worse so I had to stop physical therapy. I also had pain at work and could not sit for long periods of time. I found attorney John P. Burns on the internet. Mr. Burns and his staff were very kind and helpful to me. Mr. Burn’s office got an orthopedic surgeon to take care of me with no out of pocket payments by me. Mr. Burns also got me an MRI and took care of other medical services without me having to pay until my case settled. I was very happy with the Law Offices of John P. Burns and the great way I was treated there. I fully recommend that anyone who has a personal injury case should talk to John Burns. Mr. Burns and his staff took real good care of me and my case.

I was sitting in the front right seat of our car and my husband was driving when our car was rear ended by someone driving really fast.
I had just had a left knee replacement several months before the accident and I re-injured my left knee in the crash. I also injured my neck and low back. Attorney John Burns and the people at his office helped me get to good doctors to give me medical care.
There were several insurance companies involved and Mr. Burns and his office staff took care of everything having to do with them. He made the insurance companies all pay the full amounts of their policy benefits. We had really good doctors and got all our medical care paid for out of the settlement. We also received excellent settlement checks.
My husband and I were really happy to have Mr. Burns taking care of our cases. If anyone needs a good accident attorney John Burns and his staff would be the best to have. Olga Cisneros, Hemet, CA

I was injured in a collision on the I-5 Freeway in Orange County, California. The accident was scary. A ladder fell off the truck in front of me on the freeway. I swerved to avoid the ladder and went off the road and slammed into a tree. The insurance company tried to blame me for the accident!
Attorney John Burns and his excellent staff investigated the matter thoroughly, tracked down all the witnesses and forced the insurance company to accept complete fault for the accident.
After that, Attorney Burns helped to get the medical care I needed in order to recover from the accident. He then fought the insurance company again in order to get all my medical bills paid and a fair settlement for me.
Attorney John P. Burns and his staff really fought hard for me and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone with a serious personal injury case. Mr. Christopher Lam, Lake Forest, CA.

I was in an accident and was injured. I was in so much pain that I could not sleep. I did not have health insurance so I couldn't get the medical care I needed. Attorney John P. Burns took my case and immediately arranged for me to be seen by a pain management specialist on a lien basis. This meant that I could get treatment right away but my medical bills could be paid later out of my case settlement. The pain management doctor treated my pain and gave me medication to help me sleep. Mr. Burns then negotiated a good settlement with the insurance company so that my bills were all paid and there was money left for me to do what I wanted with it. If anyone needs an attorney who will care for them as a person, as well as doing a great job as their lawyer, I highly recommend attorney John P. Burns. In addition the staff of his law office also treated me with friendship, care, and the upmost courtesy. Michael Nolan, Murietta, CA

Attorney Burns also performed all of the legal actions necessary to fully and adequately represent his client. Mr. Burns also retained and presented many very well qualified and competent medical experts to testify on behalf of his client. Although the case was hard fought by both Mr. Burns and me, we were able to reach a settlement satisfactory to his client and mine just before trial. In conclusion, John P. Burns is a highly competent and effective personal injury lawyer.

John P. Burns, a Super Lawyer
My neck and back were injured in a three vehicle rear end collision on the freeway in Riverside County. In addition to my neck and back injuries, the motor vehicle collision caused me terrible headaches. A family friend, who is also a doctor, referred us to personal injury attorney John P. Burns. As soon as John took on my case everything started going fairly smoothly. Then, in an unrelated case, I slipped and fell. In the slip and fall accident I injured my head where it struck the curb. I then suffered a different type of headaches, dizziness and other medical problems. The defense in the car collision case tried to argue that all of my continuing physical problems were due to the slip and fall accident, not the vehicle accident. John Burns did a great job in separating out the two accidents, the two separate injuries and the doctor who treated me for each. John was able to get the defense in the vehicle accident case to pay me a reasonable amount in settlement so that I could get on with my life without having to go to trial. I would strongly recommend having John P. Burns as their attorney to anyone who is injured and needs a super lawyer to help them prevail in their case.

Several years ago, I was driving home after dropping my son off at Kindergarten when a car hit my driver’s side door at 70 MPH. I suffered major internal injuries as well as broken ribs and pelvis. Recovering from the accident took months of physical therapy and was mentally exhausting and on top of it, I was buried trying to work with the insurance companies to cover my medical bills. A friend of mine recommended that I retain John Burns as my lawyer. I left my first meeting with John and felt an immediate relief that I had somebody willing to handle all of the details of my case so I could focus on my recovery. John was a true advocate for me throughout the entire process, communicating with me every step of the way, and working on my behalf. The case was settled in a swift manner, my medical bills were all covered with my credit intact, and John was able to settle for the maximum compensation possible. John Burns made a difference in my recovery and in my case because he cares about his clients and works with and for them. Recently I was involved in another accident where the driver was uninsured and unlicensed. John took my case without hesitation and immediately began working on my behalf. While my injuries are not nearly as extensive, having John represent me gives me the confidence that my case will be handled in the most professional and compassionate manner possible. I would highly recommend John Burns to others who find themselves in need of his services.

I was injured in a motor vehicle accident in which my car was rear ended at an intersection. I injured my neck and had concussion symptoms. I was represented by attorney John P. Burns of the Law Offices of John P. Burns. The insurance company of the at fault driver refused to admit fault. It also refused to offer a reasonable amount of money to settle my case. Mr. Burns filed a lawsuit and aggressively went after the insurance company of the at fault driver. As Mr. Burns was preparing my case for trial the insurance company settled with us for twice what their offer had been throughout the case. The insurance company saw that Mr. Burns was going to go all the way to win my case and I believe this forced the insurance company to finally settle with me for a reasonable amount of money.
