Personal Injury

Slip and Falls

Slip and falls are a type of accident that may include physical, emotional, or financial injury to a victim. Someone is negligent for a slip and fall in California when he or she knows, or should have known, about a hazardous condition on the property they owns or controls, and fails to repair, protect against, or give adequate warning of the condition. Causes of a slip and fall can include wet floors, uneven sidewalks, ice or snow, poor lighting, and more. 

"Personal injury" is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property.

Personal injury law allows an injured party to bring a claim to receive compensation for any losses they incurred, which can include property damage, medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Car Accidents

Traffic collisions are the most frequent personal injury suit that we see in California.

Generally, such accidents are caused by the negligence of another driver or multiple drivers. Personal injury lawsuits can help recover costs related to the accident, from medical bills for minor injuries and lost wages to long-term medical care and even compensation for emotional damages attributed to the accident.


Rideshare accidents are also becoming more and more common. Generally including Uber and Lyft, these types of drivers are covered by up to $1 million policies dependent on when and how many passengers are in the vehicle. Getting compensation for such traumatic instances can often be easier than if the same driver is not connected with a ridesharing company.
