Wrongful Injury Cases

Accidents are unexpected, and often life-changing. If you or someone you love has experienced an accident in the workplace, on the road, or a slip-and-fall injury it can be an intense and frightening challenge. The toll it takes is not just physical – but also mental and financial. It is particularly frustrating when the cause is the negligence of others. We understand these challenges and are completely committed to hold the negligent party accountable.

Our head Visalia personal injury lawyer lawyer is a former insurance defense attorney, so he is well versed in the ways of the insurance industry. He knows the tactics used to prevent full payout and compensation, so he can keep your case on track and successful. He also uses his experience as a former army interrogator to cut through the confusion and persists until you receive the maximum possible compensation.

  • Traumatic Brain, head, or other brain injuries
  • Spine injuries
  • Amputation and loss of limb
