WHY CHOOSE Accident Lawyers?
Oakland Personal Injury Attorney & Car Accident Lawyers
If you are injured in an accident or in any situation that may be linked to another person’s wrongful conduct, whether intentional or unintentional, you may wonder what you need to do to address this matter. While some people may think that their insurance company will handle this situation for them, this is not always the case. Although your or the other party’s insurance company should provide you the benefits you deserve for an injury or accident, questions may arise regarding the validity of a claim or what amount of money you should receive. A personal injury lawyer can help in this and any similar situation to represent your interests and help you recover the money you deserve.
Help for Victims of Negligence & Wrongdoing in Oakland, CA
Accident Lawyers represents clients throughout Oakland who have been injured as the result of negligence or wrongdoing. Physical and emotional injuries that are caused by another person are referred to as a
personal injury and are actually grounds for legal action against the person that caused the injuries. For example, a driver may cause an auto accident that injures you or someone you love. Under California personal injury law, you actually have the right to sue the responsible driver for medical care, lost wages, damage to your vehicle and other injuries or losses caused by the accident. You will need to prove, however, that the other driver caused the accident by acting negligently or intentionally.
In handling an Oakland personal injury claim, an attorney at our offices will work to establish the fault of the other party. In the case above involving the motor vehicle accident, we may work with professionals in accident reconstruction to prove that the other driver was texting and therefore didn’t see that you had stopped in front of him or her, causing the driver to rear-end your vehicle. We may also work to prove the existence of
drunk driving or other negligent behavior. In a case such as this, we will pursue the highest amount of financial compensation possible, and this will typically be covered by the responsible driver’s insurance policy. If this cannot cover all of your injuries, your personal injury attorney at our offices may seek other sources of compensation, even under your own insurance policy or from other resources.

Dog Bites & Attacks
At our personal injury firm, we take dog bite cases very seriously. Adults and children may suffer serious injuries as the result of an attack by a dog, and it may be difficult to know who should be held accountable in these situations. In Oakland and throughout the entire state, a dog owner may be held liable for a dog’s behavior, even if the dog never bit anyone before or did not display aggressive tendencies in the past. Dog owners may be held strictly liable unless the victim was trespassing or provoked the dog to attack. Most of the time, homeowners insurance will cover these claims, allowing a victim to seek financial damages for medical expenses and other losses or injuries associated with the incident. We believe in properly handling our clients’ personal injury claims for dog bites and attacks to ensure they are able to receive the medical care they need. Click here to read more about dog bites.

Bicycle Accident Attorney for Oakland
Although bicycle accidents made up only roughly 7.5% of injury auto accidents in Oakland in 2008 (according to California Highway Patrol statistics) these accidents may cause serious injuries. The person most likely to be injured in a car versus bicycle accident or other collision with a motor vehicle will be the rider of the bicycle. As opposed to the occupant of the motor vehicle who is protected by thousands of pounds of metal, an airbag and a safety belt, the rider of the bicycle may only have a helmet as protection. Against a vehicle that may weigh thousands of pounds, the bicyclist has little to no chance of coming out of this event unscathed.
Have you been injured in an Oakland bike accident?
The injuries sustained in an Oakland bicycle accident are typically covered under
personal injury law. A person who suffers injury because of another person’s conduct has the right to seek to hold that person responsible in civil court for their actions. In a bicycle accident, this will most often relate to the person’s negligence, which is a failure to act with proper caution or care. A driver may be talking on the phone and may therefore simply not see a bicyclist and may turn right directly into the cyclist’s path, causing a serious accident that leaves the bicycle rider with lasting injuries.
The probable severity of a bicycle accident makes this an important case for our the lawyers at our firm.

Oakland Defective Drug Lawyer
Medical strides achieved by our scientific and pharmacological communities are widely celebrated for increasing our society’s options for healing and longevity. There can also be a negative side to the otherwise brilliant advancements of modern medicine. Most medications approved by the FDA do contain benefits that outweigh the risk of harmful side effects, but there are times when serious side effects go undetected during drug trials. A potentially harmful drug can then become approved and made readily available for doctors to prescribe to the general public. Not only could this have happened to you, but to your loved ones as well.
Injured by dangerous drugs? Get the help you deserve!
Imagine the drugs for your grandmother’s hormone replacement therapy are increasing her risk for breast cancer, your father’s cholesterol medication is causing his kidneys to fail, and your sister’s birth control is causing uterine cancer and fatal blood clotting in very young women – all of these horrors occurring unbeknownst to them and the public as whole. Innocent people suffering from a harmful drug they trusted as safe is unjust.
Unfortunately, this is not just an imaginary scenario. Across the nation, individuals and families alike are finding themselves in scenarios of this nature – the drugs that they trusted displaying hidden and sometimes fatal dangers. If you have found facing something of this nature, you need to have experienced legal representation that you can count on. An Oakland personal injury lawyer with our law group will have access to the most up-to-date drug warnings and recalls, and are ready and able to stand up to the pharmaceutical companies on behalf of our clients injured by defective drugs.
Oakland Attorney Handling Defective Drug Litigation
Do you suspect you are experiencing an illness or serious condition directly correlating to a drug you’ve been taking in good faith? Perhaps your family doctor has even already examined you, agreeing with what you think regarding the cause of your health problems. You may have legitimate grounds for filing a lawsuit for damages you have suffered due to using a drug that is defective, taking it as directed by a medical professional, and simply trusting it to work as indicated.
Our knowledgeable litigation lawyers have a combined experience of 35 years of practicing law, and we are dedicated to providing serious legal advocacy to clients who have sustained personal injuries, such as harmful side effects of a defective drug, due to the negligence of a third party. The goal of our law firm is to win you the money you deserve to compensate for a serious, unnecessary risk to your health, and your overall pain and suffering.

Defective Product Lawyer in Oakland
Financial Compensation for Defective & Dangerous Products
When a consumer is injured because of a defective or dangerous product, he or she may have the right to sue the manufacturer or other responsible party for the injuries sustained. At times, multiple consumers may bring a single lawsuit against a manufacturer – these are called class action lawsuits. In either case, the consumer will be seeking financial compensation for the injuries that he or she has had to endure.
Financial compensation may be available in a defective product claim for medical bills, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, future medical care, lost wages, future lost earnings, and possibly more. To find out what your case may be worth, we recommend a thorough review by a qualified lawyer. At the Pacific Attorney Group, we handle all types of product liability claims in the Oakland area, including those that involve home appliances, safety equipment, tools, children’s toys, medical devices, prescription drugs, food, over-the-counter medicine, electronics, auto parts, and more.
Legal Aid for Oakland Product Liability Cases
A defective product may include any consumer product that has a manufacturing defect or design defect that causes it to malfunction in some way. As the product does not perform as it should, it places any consumer using the product at risk of injury. The same may apply in cases where a product is lacking a warning label or proper instructions for use.
Cases of this kind are covered under product liability law, which concerns the liability of manufacturers, distributors and retailers for consumer injury caused by defective or dangerous products. If you or someone you know was injured by a defective product, a personal injury attorney at our law firm can help.

Oakland Dog Bite Attorney
Representation for Dog Bite Claims in Oakland, CA
Although strict liability applies in dog bite claims in California, there may be exceptions; it is important to understand these. The dog owner may attempt to avoid liability by saying that you were trespassing or that you provoked the dog. In either of those situations, it is possible that the dog owner would escape liability for your injuries. The truth is that a dog owner might have legal representation of their own. In this case, they might use defense tactics to not only avoid blame, but to turn the case around so that you are found to be the one at fault.
For this reason, it is all the more important to involve a lawyer to help with your case. An attorney experienced in handling dog bite claims can get involved and work to prove that you were not at fault in this incident but instead that the dog attacked you unprovoked. Proving your case in this manner will help you recover money for medical expenses, any lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses caused by the attack.
Have you been injured by an animal attack?
Did a dog bite you, your child or another family member or loved one? You may have grounds for a personal injury claim against the owner of the dog. For dog bites and attacks in Oakland, the dog owner will be held strictly liable – this means that he or she will be held responsible for your medical bills and other damages regardless of whether the dog has a history of violence or attacked someone in the past.
You can get more information about your dog bite claim, including your legal rights and options, by contacting an Oakland injury attorney at our law firm. There is no charge for your initial consultation, and we can address your concerns in order to help you get the information you need to make the right choices about your case.

Oakland Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Establishing Cause in an Oakland Motor Vehicle Accident
To recover the financial compensation you need after a motor vehicle accident, you will need to establish who or what caused the accident in the first place. This is one of many areas where a personal injury attorney can help. Working to reconstruct the circumstances of the accident while reviewing police reports and collecting witness testimony regarding the incident, your lawyer can strive to establish and then prove what caused your accident.
For example, a driver may have been speeding and therefore did not have time to stop when traffic slowed in front of him or her, causing the driver to rear-end your vehicle. After investigating your case, your attorney may be able to prove that this occurred, therefore offering you the opportunity to recover the financial damages you need from that driver’s insurance policy.
Have you been involved in a motor vehicle accident?
A motor vehicle accident may include any type of collision or other catastrophic event involving a motorized vehicle, ranging from a lightweight motorcycle all the way to an 80,000 pound semi truck. These accidents may involve a single vehicle, more than one vehicle or a motor vehicle and a pedestrian or
bicyclist. Regardless of the particular type of accident, all motor vehicle accidents have one thing in common: they may cause injuries or damage of a physical, financial or psychological nature. It is due to these consequences that it is important to consider involving an attorney.
A person involved in a motor vehicle accident in the Oakland area may suffer from serious injuries, leading to extensive medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and financial difficulties. Under
personal injury law, this victim may be able to seek financial damages from the person or party responsible for causing his or her injuries. This is accomplished with a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

Oakland Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
About Abuse and Negligence in Oakland Nursing Homes
Abuse in an Oakland nursing home may occur for different reasons. Lack of training, understaffing, budget cuts and basic wrongdoing may all result in nursing home abuse or negligence, leading to physical injuries, malnutrition, medical malpractice, dehydration, and even wrongful death. Nursing home abuse may take on various forms, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse and psychological abuse.
Negligence, a failure to provide proper care, is slightly different but may have the same damaging effects. In a situation of either nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect in Oakland, the victim may have the right to take legal action against the responsible party. In filing a lawsuit for nursing home neglect or abuse, you may have the opportunity to not only stop the mistreatment from continuing to occur but may also be able to recover financial compensation for the injuries inflicted.
Protecting the Elderly Against Abuse and Neglect
At times, a family will have to place an elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility because they can no longer provide for their needs. Although this is usually not the first option that a family will consider, we may seek this option to ensure that our loved ones get the medical care and other assistance they need on a day to day basis. We place our trust in nursing homes to provide the level of care our elderly loved ones deserve, but this does not always occur.
In the presence of nursing home abuse or neglect, our loved ones may suffer from serious physical and emotional injuries.

Oakland Pedestrian Accident Lawyer
Have you been involved in an accident as a pedestrian?
There were 289 pedestrian-involved auto accidents in the city of Oakland in 2008, according to statistics presented by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) online. Of these, 14 were fatal. If you or someone you know was injured in a pedestrian accident in the Oakland area, do not hesitate to contact a lawyer at our law offices as soon as possible. We have the experience and the resources to properly handle your pedestrian injury claim, helping you to seek the financial compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses or injuries caused by your accident.
A pedestrian accident may be very serious, most likely for the pedestrian rather than for the driver or occupants of the motor vehicle. While the occupants in a motor vehicle have the protection of thousands of pounds of metal, airbags and seatbelts, the pedestrian will have nothing. As such, a pedestrian may be at risk of suffering from severe head trauma, damaged internal organs, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and even amputation. All of this adds up to hospitalization and exorbitant medical bills, along with psychological trauma and financial difficulties. This is where an Oakland injury lawyer at our law firm may be able to help.
Attorney for Oakland Pedestrian Accident Claims

Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer in Oakland
A slip and fall accident is a relatively common type of accident that may occur to anyone, anyplace. When you slip, trip and fall on someone else’s property and you are injured, you may be able to take legal action against the property owner to seek money for your injuries. The first step, however, will be to talk to an Oakland personal injury lawyer about your particular case to determine whether the property owner or another party can be held responsible for what occurred.
Understanding Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident
In a slip and fall accident claim, the party that may be held liable (legally responsible) will vary depending on the specific incident. The property owner is likely the person to pursue a claim against, if he or she acted negligently in some way in regard to the safety of property grounds. For example, you may have been injured in a slip and fall accident that was caused by a spill in the aisle of a grocery store. If the property owner or manager of the store knew that a spill had occurred and did not act in a reasonable amount of time to either clean up the spill or place a warning sign to inform shoppers of the danger, you may be able to hold the owner or manager accountable for the broken wrist you sustained in the accident.
An important step to take after a slip and fall accident in Oakland is to involve an attorney. In addition to seeking medical attention and contacting an attorney, we recommend that you take pictures of the scene and take detailed notes of your injuries, what you remember about the accident, any witnesses present, and any other pertinent information that will help you support your side of the case. Doing this as soon as possible is important because the scene of the accident may change. The property owner may clean up the spill or take some other action to cover up what occurred.
Are you seeking an Oakland slip & fall attorney?
At Pacific Attorney Group, we have proven over the years that we have what it takes to provide our clients with careful and experienced legal assistance in even the most daunting of cases. These cases cannot be trusted to an inexperienced attorney and we are therefore proud to ensure that our clients are given sophisticated and professional legal assistance in even the most difficult of cases.

In these types of cases, it can be possible the evidence can be quickly erased – it is important that we begin to move immediately to preserve such facts and details that we can use to build your case. So don’t waste another minute – contact our firm immediately and learn more about how we can help you in filing your claim.

Oakland Attorney for Toxic Exposure Cases
Overview of Toxic Exposure and Poisoning
Due to the wide variety of chemicals that are used in different businesses and manufacturing, the possibility of exposure to toxic substances in the workplace and in the home is always present. Beside asbestos, there are many other toxic substances and chemicals used in construction, mining and manufacturing that can cause illness, disabilities and even death. A few of these include:
- Carbon Monoxide
There are a wide variety of disabilities and diseases that exposure to these toxic substances can cause including cancers, skin disease and scarring, breathing and lung problems, allergic reactions and eye problems. If you have suffered from any disease or illness as the result of exposure to toxic substances in the workplace or your home, then you should see an Oakland personal injury lawyer at the Pacific Attorney Group.
Consult With an Oakland Poisoning Lawyer Today
Some diseases and symptoms can appear long after the exposure and may not be as obvious initially. The side-effects of asbestos on workers who have been exposed and their families are devastating. Lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other pathological conditions are caused by asbestos exposure; workers who were exposed may be entitled to benefits and compensation for their illness. Our legal team aggressively pursues fair compensation in these dangerous injury cases.

Oakland Trucking Accident Attorney
Being involved in an accident with a large truck is dangerous. The sheer size and weight of an 18-wheeler, semi truck or big rig will place the driver and passenger of a smaller vehicle at immediate risk of injury. The potential severity of an Oakland truck accident makes it all the more important to consult an attorney if you or someone you know was injured in a collision of this kind.
Representing Victims in Oakland Truck Accidents
A person who has been involved in a truck accident and was injured has the right to seek justice by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person or party that caused the accident. For example, a truck driver may have been overworked and extremely tired, meaning that he or she was not watching the road carefully and was speeding to make his or her next stop on time. If that truck driver therefore caused an auto accident and injured the driver of a car, the driver of the car may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the truck driver (or the trucking company) to seek financial compensation for injuries sustained.
Holding the negligent party responsible in this way helps the victim recover the money he or she needs for medical care and other expenses or losses caused by the trucking accident. We at the Pacific Attorney Group represents client throughout the Oakland area who have been injured in trucking accidents. We take on car versus truck accidents<, motorcycle versus truck accidents and trucking accidents that involve pedestrians, bicyclists and drunk drivers. We have more than 35 years of collective attorney experience to apply to our clients’ cases and offer a free case evaluation to talk to you about the circumstances of your specific truck accident and what can be done to help with your related insurance claim or lawsuit.

Oakland Workplace Accident Lawyer
Financial Benefits for Work-Related Injuries
When a person is injured in a workplace accident, such as a construction accident, he or she will be able to recover financial benefits by way of a workers’ compensation claim. In California, injured workers are offered workers’ compensation benefits for any type of work accident, regardless of the circumstance surrounding the incident and who was at fault. The freedom from proving that someone else caused the accident offers an employee the opportunity to recover the money he or she needs for medical care and other damages more quickly and easily, but it limits his or her ability to sue for employer negligence.
Understanding your particular legal options and your rights in filing a workplace accident claim is important, if you are to have the best chance of recovering the money you need. An Oakland accident lawyer at our law firm can offer you a free review of your case, at which time we can evaluate the matter, answer your questions and help you get the information you need to make an informed choice about your case.

In addition to seeking money by filing for workers’ compensation, we may seek out other sources, such as third parties who were responsible for causing the accident. This may be the manufacturer of a defective product that caused an industrial accident, or the driver of a car who caused a work-related auto accident. In any case, our goal will be to help our client recover the most financial compensation possible for his or her particular claim.
