Each year, many employees are injured on the job, and each year we receive many questions from employees wondering if they “really” deserve compensation for their injury. After all, it’s part of the job, right? Wrong. Whether your job involves heavy construction or pushing paper is irrelevant to whether or not you deserve compensation for an injury caused by your work. Suffering physical harm is never in anyone’s job responsibilities, and if you’ve been injured because of your job you deserve to know what your options are.
Sexual assault is a heinous crime that can impact victims for the rest of their lives. As the #MeToo movement has illustrated, it is a disturbingly common and growing problem that affects many of us. Unfortunately, even in 2019, the criminal justice system does not always treat sexual assault victims fairly, and many sexual assault victims either lose at court or don’t even bother bringing their case to court for fear of the extreme and often degrading levels of scrutiny such a proceeding can bring to them.
Law enforcement officers have a dangerous job, and they do incredible work to keep our communities safe. The men and women on the front lines of fighting crime deserve the utmost respect and our gratitude for the difficult and necessary actions they must take every day. While the overwhelming majority of police officers are professionals who treat citizens with respect, there are unfortunately some law enforcement officers who do not bring honor to the blue uniform.
It seems like police brutality, misconduct, and officer involved shootings are always in the news.
California is a big state with many highways and a bustling commercial road transit sector. This means that there are a significant amount of 18-wheelers, or semi-trucks, on the road in the state every day. These are heavy trucks, and when you are involved in an accident with one of them the result is often a devastating injury. While most semi-truck drivers do not intend to cause accidents, many times those who do are negligent.
At J&Y Law, we have represented numerous clients whose lives have been irreparably and horrifically changed as the result of a catastrophic semi-truck accident injury.
Many of us hit the road over the holidays to visit friends and family, attend work gatherings, or simply take in the sights and sounds of the season. California’s rate of car accidents is already quite high, but when you add in the increased holiday traffic, that usually means increased accidents and increased injuries. If you were involved in a car accident over the holiday season, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries and property damage you have incurred.
At J&Y Law, our experienced car accident attorneys are committed to advocating for your compensation and your rights as a person who was unjustly injured.
You have probably seen Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder in the news recently, and for all the wrong reasons. Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder is one of the leading baby powders in the market, and has been for decades. It has been used on and by most everyone in the United States at some point—making the recent news about cancer caused by the product all the more shocking.
Recent news articles have described how executives at Johnson & Johnson were aware for decades that the company’s baby powder could potentially be contaminated by asbestos.
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,
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.
We all remember how we were when we were teenagers. The sky’s the limit, especially when it comes to being able to drive yourself to places. Safety wasn’t always our first priority when it came to driving. However, that’s exactly why you should give your teenage child all the safety resources, skills, and tips you can to help them prioritize keeping themselves and their passengers safe.
As personal injury attorneys, we have represented far too many teenagers whose lives are forever changed by simple driving mistakes. We have also represented too many families whose teenagers lost their lives due to easily preventable decisions made by inexperienced or inattentive drivers.
California is a beautiful state home to scenic vistas and breathtaking scenery. No wonder it is one of the most popular states for motorcyclists to tour! With all the motorcyclists in California, it is unfortunately all too common for them to be hit by other drivers. Fortunately for injured motorcyclists, California has some of the strongest and broadest protections for motorcyclists in the United States. Unfortunately for motorcyclists, insurance companies still work very hard to minimize the payouts for claims of injured California motorcyclists.
At J&Y Law, we know how serious motorcycle injuries are,
