While these are our primary areas of practice, we have experience representing clients in a wide range of legal matters. If you need help with any legal issue, or think you may have any type of case, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Bicycle/Motorcycle
Accidents

There has been a marked shift in recent years, with many people giving up their cars and commuting primarily by bicycle. A large number of people have also taken up bicycling for recreation and exercise. These changes have led many cities to increase the number of bike lanes and "sharrows," however, bike riders are often injured by the reckless, careless, or intentional actions of others. As the cost of gas continues to rise, there has been a big increase in the number of motorcyclists as well.

If you have been injured, either by the actions of a motorist, or by a hazard in the road (such as gravel or construction debris), you should do the following:

1. Get the driver’s name, insurance information, driver’s license number, and license plate number. It is against the law for the driver to leave without exchanging information.
2. Call the police and report the accident, before leaving the scene of the accident.
3. Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses.
4. Get any medical attention you need as soon as possible.
5. Call an attorney.
Our work on accident cases is contingency-based, which means we collect no fee unless we recover money for you.

Workers'
Compensation

An injured worker in California is entitled to all reasonable medical care and medical treatment needed to cure or relieve a specific work-related injury, or an injury that may have occurred over a period of time, known as a cumulative trauma. Medical care covered by California Workers Compensation insurance claims typically include: medical, surgical and hospital services, dental services, crutches and orthopedic devices, hearing aids, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, nursing care, other durable medical equipment, and prescribed medications.

California Workers’ Compensation cases cover a variety of work injuries ranging from temporary disability to total or partial permanent disability. You may be entitled to a settlement for a partial permanent disability award if you have permanent work restrictions imposed because of your work injury or job related injuries. Medical evidence will determine the extent of your temporary as well as permanent disabilities. The value of your claim depends, in large part, on the extent of permanent disability.
