Standing up for clients injured in the full range of accident types
If you’ve suffered an injury due to another person’s negligent or wrongful act, you need to act quickly to ensure your rights are preserved. California has a two-year statute of limitations for most personal injury claims, and there are shorter time periods when government entities are sued. It is also important to be aware of California’s comparative liability law, which places part of the financial responsibility on each person involved in an accident to the extent of their fault. Whether your injury resulted from an auto accident, a slip and fall, a pedestrian accident or a dog bite incident, you should consult with us about your options for pursuing damages and how your own conduct will factor into the recovery.
Winning full benefits under California workers’ compensation law
If you are injured on the job or suffer an occupational ailment, you cannot file a negligence action against your employer. Your sole remedy is workers' compensation, which reimburses victims for medical costs, lost wages and rehabilitation expenses, covering short-term or permanent disability. Our firm represents people who suffer industrial injuries, construction site injuries and work-related syndromes such as repetitive stress disorders. We also represent clients in FELA railroad worker injury cases. We help you navigate the system so you don’t get taken advantage of by insurance companies.
