Let’s face it, a lot of things can go wrong on the road, and sorting out the cause of an accident can be tricky.

We can help you get the medical assistance you need, investigate the accident to determine who’s at fault, and handle the communication between you and the insurance companies involved. Once we determine the cause of your accident, our personal injury litigation team will work tirelessly to ensure you are compensated for everything you’ve been through. The sooner we can get started, the better. If you’ve recently been involved in an accident, please call for a free consultation.
Many of the situations discussed elsewhere on this site — premises liability, defective products, vehicle and pedestrian accidents — can result in catastrophic injury, which are those injuries that result in long-term consequences. Victims of catastrophic injury may require medical care for the rest of their lives. Life expectancy may also be shortened as a result of their injuries. These types of cases are complicated because current and future financial needs (which can be overwhelming) are addressed and included in any compensation. Victims of catastrophic injury also suffer such intangibles such as pain, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. Our firm can help ensure that your medical expenses are covered and that you are compensated fully and fairly for your financial losses and the intangibles mentioned above. If you've suffered a catastrophic injury, please look to us to become your personal injury attorney. We would appreciate the opportunity to fight for justice on your behalf.
In general, children are more susceptible to injury They haven't developed the common sense necessary to detect and avoid dangerous situations, and their bodies are small and not yet fully developed, making it more likely that consequences of an injury to a child will be more devastating than a similar injury would be for an adult. If your child has been the victim of a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, a defective product or any type of abuse, you may be very worried about getting your child the care that they need right now. Feel free to call on us to be your personal injury attorney and so much more. We can work together to hold the responsible party accountable and not allow the same thing to happen to another child.
Thousands of people are killed, injured or disfigured each year as a result of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can stem from something as trivial as a medical professional misrepresenting his or her credentials. These situations have far-reaching and serious consequences.
We've all heard stories of doctors operating on the wrong part of patients' bodies. Thankfully, these kinds of cases are extremely rare. But what about prescribing a drug a patient is allergic to? Or failing to diagnose a condition that could be treated and make a huge difference in a patient's quality of life if caught early? Doctors these days are under a tremendous amount of pressure, which can result in less time being spent on each patient. Frankly, some doctors today just can't work effectively under this kind of pressure.
Unfortunately, therapist abuse is as much a problem these days as medical malpractice. Therapists practice under clear ethical guidelines and are bound by California law, which provides — in no uncertain terms — that therapists may not have sexual contact with their patients. We all need to be clear about our rights.
If you need a personal injury litigation team to work for you before the statute of limitations on your medical malpractice case runs out, call us today. We will help you find a solution to your problem if you are in or around Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland or San Jose.
Construction sites are obviously dangerous, but the general contractor, the subcontractors and site supervisors are all responsible for minimizing the inherent dangers. If any of these parties fail in their pursuit to make the construction site as safe as possible, or if they have been negligent in the maintenance of any of the machinery on the site, they are responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of that negligence. If you've been injured on a construction site, you may be eligible to be compensated for lost wages, pain and suffering, as well as the cost of any medical treatment. If the accident you were involved in can be categorized as "catastrophic" (that is, it results in long-term consequences), it's even more important that you hire a personal injury attorney today. Please call us so we can start investigating your claim and help you get the compensation you deserve.
Think for a minute about all the different products you come into contact with at home on a daily basis: food, medicines, kitchen appliances, cleaning products, furniture, electronics — and don't forget your car! Basically, any product has the potential to cause injury. Sometimes a product just isn't designed in a way that makes it safe. In other cases, the product is designed well, but some corners may have been cut during the manufacturing process, or there may have been a defect in the production line of product. In either case the product didn't quite turn out as planned. Sometimes a company knows the risk of injury exists if its product is used incorrectly. It is their responsibility to warn consumers about that risk. The company's liability may be significantly increased when injury occurs.
If you've been injured as a result of a defective product, save the product (or however much of it remains) and if at all possible, keep the original packaging the product. Then call us to be your personal injury litigation specialists.
There is only a certain amount of time during which you have the right to claim damages as a result of a defective product, so the sooner you get in touch with our firm, the better!
Perhaps one of the most difficult decisions that we will ever be confronted with is how to help care for an aging or sick parent or relative. In our society, sometimes our elders, including parents, become residents of elder care living facilities, which are also known as nursing homes, boarding homes, or long-term care homes. Some of these facilities are lovely. However, due to budgets, ever-changing insurance guidelines and other financial considerations, some facilities have decided to cut corners in care and staff. These decisions adversely affect the level of care for our seniors, sometimes resulting in issues of physical abuse as well as neglect.
If you suspect that there is ongoing physical abuse at a facility, you may want to immediately contact the police. If your loved one has been hurt, injured, or died as a result of neglect at a facility, please call me to discuss the matter. You need a personal injury litigation team on your side.
Further, our elders have become targets for financial rip-offs. Brokers, stock brokers, financial advisors, accountants and/or other fiduciaries have a legal obligation to protect elders. If they violate that obligation, our firm can help obtain compensation.
We look forward to your call to help you resolve any of these situations. It is our goal to continually pursue justice for the people.
