Oakland Personal Injury Attorney
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
Pacific Attorney Group 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.
We know the importance of seeking full financial compensation and should you have suffered from catastrophic injuries (such as a
burn injury or
paralysis from a
spinal cord injury) we will do everything that we can to secure the compensation necessary towards helping you to cover all associated costs. These can include compensation for lost income, to help pay for associated medical expenses or even for the loss of companionship in a
wrongful death case. Regardless of the circumstances, you can trust that we will have the know-how and desire necessary to help you obtain the just and desirable outcome that you deserve.
