Brain & Spinal Cord Injury

A mild or traumatic injury to your brain or spinal cord can have long lasting and devastating effects, possibly leading to a disability.

Further, simple enjoyment of life can be substantially decreased and you could be restricted in your ability to continue working in your chosen career.

Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries are usually permanent injuries often leaving you disfigured and/or permanently disabled. These injuries are so severe that resulting compensations are large. These cases often produce unique issues and require extensive and comprehensive investigation and preparation. Both medical and economic experts are often required to support your case.

Wrongful Death

The loss of your loved one is not only tragic but could also leave you without financial support. You could obtain compensation in order to assist you financially by filing a wrongful death claim. Generally, you must file a wrongful death claim within two years of the injury or death pursuant to Code of Civ. Pro. §335.1.

Dog Bite Injury

Pursuant to Civ. Code §3342(a), dog owners are held strictly liable for your injuries if their dog bites you while you are in a public place or lawfully in a private place, irrespective of whether the owner had prior knowledge of the dog’s viciousness.
