Oakland Personal Injury Lawyer
Powerful Advocacy for Personal Injury Victims
Each year countless people in Oakland and throughout the East Bay are injured in accidents that could have been easily prevented. If a victim is harmed because another person acted in a careless or reckless manner, the victim could hold them liable for their negligence through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. A person acts negligently when they fail to take reasonable precautions to prevent harm to others. Under personal injury law, a victim can seek compensation for any injuries and losses caused by the negligent party's actions.

Were you injured in a negligent accident?
A person's careless choices can lead innocent victims to sustain a variety of painful and even catastrophic injuries. If the owner of a store or building fails to properly maintain their property and a patron or visitor is harmed in a
slip and fall or other accident because of this oversight, the owner could be held liable through a
premises liability claim. These claims are often filed after victims are hurt while visiting
amusement parks, shopping centers, and sports complexes. Premises liability law can also cover
animal attacks; for example, if an individual suffers serious
dog bites, the pet owner could be held responsible for the animal's actions.
Manufacturers have a responsibility to protect consumers from harm, and if they fail to do so, they could be held accountable under product liability law. Manufacturers are supposed to put their products through reasonable testing to make sure they are safe for users, but sometimes corners are cut to save profits. Some of the most common product liability claims we handle involve defective automobile parts, children's toys, cribs and car seats, appliances, and unsafe medications. We can represent you in filing a claim against a manufacturer or in a class action lawsuit.
Victims of Car Accidents in Oakland, CA
Perhaps the most frequent negligent accidents that occur in the Bay Area are motor vehicle collisions. If you were injured because of the recklessness of another driver, we can represent you in a car accident claim. Auto accidents often result in severe physical damages like
spinal cord injuries, and
brain injuries. The harm is often especially devastating when the crash involves a
pedestrian. Whether your accident involved a
drunk driver, or
uninsured motorist, you can be confident that our firm will aggressively advocate on your behalf and seek the compensation you deserve.
Why hire an Oakland injury attorney?
If you sustained painful injuries because of another person's reckless or careless actions, you deserve powerful representation to assist you in fighting for fair compensation. Serious accidents most often leave victims burdened with extensive medical and rehabilitative care bills, missed wages, and the loss of ability and future earning capacity. Many families try to file personal injury claims on their own, and soon find that the insurance companies are very unwilling to provide them with a proper settlement or may even try to take advantage of them.
By having legal representation that you can rely on, you can take the necessary steps needed to effectively file a claim and fight for the settlement you deserve with full confidence that your rights and interests are being protected. By gathering evidence, helping outline the damages that you have suffered (both physical and non-physical), and pooling together testimony to support your case, you can be confident knowing that you have a legal heavyweight on your side looking out for you.
Under personal injury law, a person who has been injured because of another person or entity's actions may be able to seek financial compensation for his or her injuries. This may apply to injuries that are physical and emotional in nature, and a victim may be able to recover money for medical expenses, future medical care, emotional damages, lost wages, loss of future earnings, and possibly more. One of the most important things you can do immediately after any type of accident or injury is to talk to an attorney about your legal options.
