Resolve to Get Justice for Your Personal Injury in 2019!

  • Jan 4 2019

We’ve all been hearing people say “New Year, new me” since January 1st. For those who struggle with the life changing consequences of a personal injury, the ability just to get the “old you” back would be enough, most days. The “old you” could work your regular job and provide for your family, could make it through the day without pain medication, and didn’t constantly wonder whether they had a meaningful or productive future.

While our personal injury attorneys can’t guarantee that you will be able to get the “old you” back,


Drunk Driving During the Holiday Season

  • Jan 2 2019

We think of the winter holidays as the most festive time of the year, blending family, food, and fun. For a great many of us, though, holiday gathering also include imbibing alcohol. If we were all living in a Currier & Ives painting and riding in sleighs, whether the person holding the reins had had a few too many spiked eggnogs might not be much of a problem. With a large percentage of the population speeding down our country’s highways from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, however, we have more than enough cause to be worried about being involved in drunk-driving accidents.

How Common is Wrongful Death in California?

  • Nov 30 2018

Death is a fact of life. However, sometimes the death of a person is the fault of someone else. In these cases, known as wrongful death cases, the law recognizes that in wrongful death cases the person who caused the death should be held accountable. While criminal law addresses cases where someone intentionally caused the death of another, civil law is more often used to address situations where someone negligently caused the death of another through their careless actions.

In California, you are able to file a civil wrongful death lawsuit in these situations if you meet the eligibility requirements.

  • Nov 22 2018
