Wrongful death cases

require experienced attorneys. The accidental death of a loved one in a fatal accident is devastating to the survivors.

Our experienced and compassionate attorneys have successfully represented husbands and wives, sons and daughters of those killed in fatal accidents of all types, including car and truck accidents, medical errors, and day-care accidents.

We will help you secure financial compensation to assist with expenses related to your loss, replace lost wages, and secure the financial future of you and your family.

Wrongful or accidental death can occur in a variety of circumstances. If you have lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence or malice, our wrongful death attorneys will help you hold the people responsible for your loss accountable for the damages caused to your family. We will make sure that the responsible party, insurance company or corporation is accountable and the jury understands the impact of your loss.

Auto & Truck Accidents

Personal injury claims from auto, truck and pedestrian accidents also require competent representation. When you or a loved one are injured in an accident, it is critical that you speak to an attorney with experience in the field as soon as possible. Clients who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions have unique needs. We understand the engineering principles involved in automobile accident reconstruction, and the medical issues presented by the bio mechanics of the crash. If you wait too long to speak with an attorney, it is possible that evidence in your case may be lost, witnesses may disappear, and memories may fade. When we accept your automobile accident claim, we immediately begin an investigation to secure and preserve evidence in your case.

Many people believe that claim resolution or settlement in auto accidents is simple and easy, and that insurance companies simply pay all claims in a fair and just manner. In fact, this is far from the truth. In California, the law requires that the injured person proven fault in the accident, and that the injured person prove their injuries. This means that your attorneys must be prepared not only to negotiate, but to bring your case to trial. If settlement on terms favorable to you is not possible, we are prepared to vigorously litigate your case in court.

If you, or a loved one, has been injured in an auto, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident, contact our firm for a free consultation.

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect also requires an experienced attorney. As our population ages, more and more elderly are unable to care for themselves. Because friends and family are not always able to care for their daily needs, nursing homes and assisted living centers must do so. Adult care providers are also often hired by concerned family members. Unfortunately, in some such facilities, and even by private daycare providers, elders are being abused – both physically and financially. Our attorneys have successful represented many injured elders because of the wrongdoing they have suffered.

Nursing home and daycare neglect can manifest itself in many different conditions, and it can result in a variety of injuries, including bed sores, infection, dehydration, falls, fractures, burns, malnutrition, failure to medicate and monitor, and failure to seek emergency treatment by a doctor or hospital.

Financial abuse of elders is also rampant. Working with experienced nursing home and neglect attorneys is critical in order to obtain proper compensation for your elderly family member, and to insure that your loved one will be treated with the proper dignity and respect. We have successfully obtained compensation, and secured changes in operation of the family to prevent further instances of abuse.
