  • Serious Automobile Accidents can cause terrible injuries. If you are looking for a car accident lawyer, it is important to find one with the right credentials. Whether from speeding, texting while driving, being rear-ended, side-swiped, t-boned or caused to roll over, the injuries in a car wreck can be some of the most serious seen in personal injury cases. When you or a loved one are injured in an auto crash, the financial hardships caused by medical expenses and loss of income can be devastating. Immediately after your accident, you should take important steps that will preserve your rights and protect you from the other driver’s insurance company. The insurance adjuster is not there to help you. They are employed by the insurance company to save money. It is that simple. They will try to stop you from obtaining the damages you are entitled to receive. Also, do not hire anybody that approaches you or calls you offering medical or legal services for your case. These people are scam artists and are breaking the law. They will settle your case for less than you are entitled to receive.
  • Drunk Driving DWI Accident Lawyers. We have represented many victims of accidents caused by drunk drivers. When you or a loved one are the victim of vehicle crash caused by a drunk driver, you should retain a competent personal injury lawyer to aggressively pursue the drunk for the damages and injuries he or she has caused. Accidents caused by drunk drivers often cause the most devastating injuries due to their outrageous driving. The wrongful conduct by the DWI offender can entitle you to punitive damages for your injuries. These are damages over and above those for your injuries. It is for this reason that it is our policy to demand no less than the full policy limits available from the drunk driver’s insurance company. Also, under California law, it is a crime to give your car to a drunk driver. In some cases, the person who handed over the keys to the drunk driver might also be liable. This is known as negligent entrustment. You need a seasoned personal injury attorney to properly handle this matter to ensure that you receive all the compensation available.
  • Truck Accident Lawyers. We represent folks who have been injured by the careless actions of truck drivers. 18-wheeler truck and other commercial vehicle accidents can be caused by many factors. Often, truck accidents are caused by driver error or improper maintenance of the truck. Most often, truck accidents are caused by the following:
    1. Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Fatigue Driver fatigue is one of the major causes of big truck accidents.  Regulations limit the time a driver can be on the road but these rules can be ignored causing serious accidents.
    2. Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Inattention As in other vehicular accidents, inattention of the driver can have devastating consequenses.  Whether caused by cell phone use, texting, reading or just general lack of attention, driver inattention is a major problem in truck operation.
    3. Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Intoxication Intoxication causing accidents with big rig trucks is not always the result of alcohol abuse.  While major accidents happen when drunks get behind the wheel, intoxication can also result from drug abuse.
    4. Truck Accidents Caused by Driver Negligence Truck drivers owe a duty to the public to operate their rigs in a safe manner.  When they fall below that standard of care, accidents can happen resulting in serious injuries.
    5. Truck Accidents Caused by Faulty Equipment When a company tries to save money at the expense of public safety, equipment failre can result causing crashes.
    6. Truck Accidents Caused by Improper Securing of Load Drivers should know how to secure their load properly.  When the either don’t know or just don’t do it right, this negligent conduct can result in injuries to other drivers.
    7. Truck Accidents Caused by Inadequate Driver Training Trucking companies are required to properly train their drivers.  When they fail to do so, they are creating a danger to the public by putting an inexperienced driver on the road.
    8. Truck Accidents Caused by Poor Maintenance Laws and regulations require owners and drivers to properly maintain their trucks.  There is are good reasons for this – lack of proper maintenance can result on truck accidents or items falling off trucks cauing injury to others.
    9. Truck Accidents Caused by Safety Violations Continual safetly violations are a big problem.  However, even one violation can cause devastating injuries to fellow drivers.
