read moreIf you are injured in an auto crash, it is important to follow a procedure that will provide all the necessary information to your insurance carrier and to support your injury claim in the event that you need to file a lawsuit for compensation. As a priority, schedule an appointment immediately after the collision so that a licensed medical professional can provide you with a clean bill of health upon completion of medical treatment. You should also consult with an attorney as soon as possible to keep from reducing the value of your claims.
read moreIn almost all situations, pedestrians have the right-of-way, according to California state law. In fact, California Vehicle Code 21950(a) requires that cars yield to persons walking in designated crosswalks and at unmarked walkways within intersections. Getting hit by a car can result in serious injury such as bone fractures, disability, and disfigurement. Other times, a pedestrian accident can be fatal. If the driver that hit you or your loved one in California was uninsured, you may still be eligible to receive compensation through your own insurance provider.
read moreIf a worker sustains an industrial injury, he or she may be entitled to receive benefits for that injury or injuries through the California workers compensation system. An industrial injury is an injury sustained during the course and scope of their employment (i.e. while doing a task for their employer or at their employers direction). This usually entitles the person to three basic benefits as follows: (1) Temporary Disability payments (under California Labor Code section 4653) for lost income while the injured laborer is out of work; (2) Payment of all medical bills; and (3) a permanent disability award at the end of the case based upon a calculation of residual injury associated with each affected body part adjusted by the workers future earning capacity.

read moreThank you so much for helping my son. You were referred by a good friend who said you did a great job on their car accident case. The other attorney told us we didnt have a case because the Police Report went against us. You convinced the insurance company that, despite what the report said, the other driver should have seen my son in the middle of the road on his bike. They finally agreed to settle for the full policy limits. My son was able to get the treatment he needed and is now back in good health and playing sports again with his high school. You are a great lawyer!

read moreI really appreciate all that Steve and Josh did for my son. They came to the hospital (personally) to talk to him, check on him and find out about the accident. They then went to work and got what I thought was a very fair amount. They made sure that his bills were paid and would be paid for all the treatment that he needed. They kept me informed throughout the case and were very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who has been in an accident and has been injured and needs help from honest, caring attorneys.

read moreI have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through.
