Why You Need a Lawyer

Accidents and injuries can cause major disruptions in a person’s life and bring enormous financial and emotional burdens. A personal injury claim may involve severe or disabling injuries, in which case the claim has a higher value.

It makes sense to have a legal professional with extensive knowledge, experience, and resources handling your case. The insurance company may deny liability or refuse to offer a fair settlement. Our experienced Bakersfield personal injury attorneys can negotiate skillfully on your behalf or fight for your rights in court if necessary.

A history of successful injury cases

Types of Personal Injury We Cover

Our attorneys have decades of experience representing injured clients in a range of personal injury matters. We have a history of success handling cases including:

  • Car accidents: Auto accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in the state and the country. The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS)  reports 3,623 traffic fatalities in 2016, representing a 7% increase from the previous year.
  • Trucking accidents: Passenger vehicle occupants are vulnerable to serious injuries in a collision with a fully-loaded tractor-trailer. Unfortunately, many wrecks involving commercial trucks and passenger vehicles are caused by the truck driver or trucking company.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle in a crash and are more likely to suffer serious or fatal injuries. Many motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers who fail to register the motorcycle in the roadway.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrians are completely unprotected and vulnerable in a traffic crash with a motor vehicle. OTS reports 867 pedestrian fatalities in California in 2016.
  • Bus accidents: Although they do not happen as frequently as car accidents, bus accidents can cause serious injuries when they occur.
  • Slip and Fall: If your slip and fall accident occurred on someone else’s property because of property owner negligence, you may have a premises liability claim for compensation.
  • Dog bites: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that an estimated 4.7 million people in the U.S. sustained dog bites in a single year.
  • Medical malpractice: Although doctors are there to improve and protect our health, medical error remains a leading cause of death and injury in the U.S.
  • Wrongful death: If you have lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim to hold the responsible parties accountable.
