Auto accidents often result in serious permanent injury, paralysis, emotional trauma, or death. When another person’s negligence jeopardizes the health and well being of you or your loved one, there is nothing more important than ensuring justice is served.

Although riding a motorcycle can be more thrilling than driving a car, when an individual gets in a motorcycle accident, the injuries are much more severe. Many victims of motorcycle accidents face life-threatening injuries, paralysis, or death. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in Ventura or Los Angeles County, you have a right to be compensated for your pain, suffering, emotional distress, medical costs, and financial hardship.

Construction workers are constantly exposed to dangerous working conditions on a daily basis. Despite federal and state legislation requiring construction companies to implement and maintain strict safety regulations, thousands of construction workers are still getting injured on the job every year.
Due to the shear size and power of an 18-wheel truck, individuals who are involved in trucking accidents often face grave injuries, and even death. Most 18-wheel trucks weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds, compared to the 10,000 pounds a passenger vehicle weighs. In many cases, standard-size vehicles are often crushed like aluminum cans when they collide with these oversized trucks. When a standard-size car, truck, motorcycle, or SUV collides with a massive semi truck, drivers and passengers have little chance of coming out of the accident without sustaining some type of serious injury.
When an individual dies as the result of another person’s negligence or reckless conduct, his or her family is legally entitled to receive compensation for their loss. If you have recently lost a loved one due another person’s negligence, it is important that you file a wrongful death claim as soon as possible. Failure to do so may waive your right to recover damages.
Bus & Train Accidents
Many people rely on public buses, school buses, and shuttle buses to get them to and from wherever they need to go on any given day. Southern California’s notoriously congested streets and highways increase anyone’s chances of getting in a bus-related accident, whether you’re a pedestrian, ride the bus, or just drive next to it. Bus accidents occur for a variety of reason including unsafe driving conditions, negligence, poorly maintained equipment, reckless driving, failure to adhere to traffic laws, fatigue, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Dogs make some of the best companions, and provide people with unconditional love and loyalty. Unfortunately, despite a dogs’ normally friendly and benign nature, sometimes they can turn on humans and attack. When an individual is attacked or bitten by a dog, he or she may sustain life-threatening injuries. If you or a loved one has been attacked or bitten by a dog, it is vital that you contact an experienced dog bite attorney. A skilled dog bite attorney can protect your rights and ensure you get the financial compensation you deserve.
Slip and fall accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere. When an individual slips, trips, or falls because of unsafe or poorly maintained property conditions, he or she has the legal right to receive damages for any injuries that were sustained. Property owners, including the city as it relates to sidewalks and streets, are legally responsible for ensuring their premises are safe, and free of any hazards or potentially dangerous conditions.
Every year over 100,000 pedestrians are either injured or killed by a motor vehicle. Pedestrians should not have to fear for their safety every time they walk outside. It is important to remember that pedestrians have the right to travel in intersections and on sidewalks, just as much as motor vehicles have the right to drive on the roads.
