Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Personal Injury

You matter. Serious personal injury cases require lawyers with the tenacity, creativity, and financial resources to try your case to a jury. We are experienced personal injury lawyers. We’ve won awards for our work and been recognized by our peers as top-rated lawyers in California. Our greatest reward, however, comes from helping those who have been seriously injured.

We handle catastrophic and serious personal injury cases throughout California and Oregon, with a special focus in California’s northern and Oregon’s southern rural counties. We advocate for the rights of our personal injury clients in cases of:

  • elder and nursing home abuse
  • automobile and trucking accidents
  • logging accidents
  • motorcycle accidents
  • premises liability
  • product liability
  • boating accidents
  • pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • dangerous roads and highways
  • wrongful death.

As anyone suffering from a catastrophic personal injury knows, the physical and psychological impacts of an accident can be complex and devastating. We’ve dealt with a wide array of serious and catastrophic injuries including amputations, disfigurement, paralysis, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, and other severe personal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact us for a free consultation.


Wrongful Death

We’ve been representing clients in wrongful death cases since 1976.  We lead the way in representing Northern California families who have lost loved ones due to negligence and understaffing in local skilled nursing facilities. We also represent families who have lost loved ones due to accidents on our roads and highways due to the negligence of other drivers or defective road designs. In many cases, multiple parties can be responsible for the wrongful death of your loved ones, and we have the experience and resources to take on these complex cases.

If someone you loved was involved in a fatal accident and you have questions bringing a lawsuit, contact us for a free consultation.
