Is an Expert Witness Right for Your Case?

  • Nov 22 2018

In car accidents, much of the attention is focused on the drivers. However, passenger injuries in car accidents are worthy of attention, too, as passengers often suffer just as severe, if not more so, injuries than their passengers. If you were a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident and you sustained injuries as a result of that accident, you likely have many questions about whether you can sue and who you can sue.

At J&Y Law, we have represented many clients who were injured while riding as passengers in others’ cars.

In California, an estimated 15 percent of drivers are uninsured, meaning it entirely possible that you could be involved in a collision with an uninsured motorist.

We purchase products expecting that they have been designed and made correctly. Unfortunately, sometimes companies will fail to make or design a product safely. When this happens, consumers get hurt.

A recent California Supreme Court opinion may make it easier for injured consumers to hold manufacturers responsible for product defects. In products liability cases, manufacturers are held strictly liable if their product is defectively designed and injures someone because of that defective design. Whether or not injured parties can introduce evidence of industry best practices adhered to by other manufacturers who produce similar products has been a subject of debate.

  • Oct 4 2018

Anyone who has had the misfortune of being forced to file a personal injury lawsuit can tell you that the process can tough. Many plaintiffs anticipate that the hardest part of their lawsuit will be convincing a jury to believe them, so they are often surprised when they are forced to turn over a large volume of personal information to the attorneys of the party they are suing.
