Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Oakland
As the eighth largest city in California, Oakland is home to more than 400,000 residents. The city also hosts three professional sports teams (the Oakland Raiders, the Oakland Athletics, and the Golden State Warriors), the busy Port of Oakland, and the USS Potomac, a National Historic Landmark. Oakland is known as a vibrant and ever-changing city with picturesque hillsides. It is one of the most ethnically integrated cities in the United States, making the area culturally diverse as well.
Despite everything the city has to offer, residents and visitors are injured in accidents every day. According to the Census Bureau, 3,434 people died in California traffic accidents in 2008. Thirty-six of those deaths occurred in Oakland. This was three times higher than the number of deadly car accidents in any other city in Alameda County. Another 3,010 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in Oakland that year.
Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
We know that insurance companies will often try to take advantage of an unrepresented accident victim, and apply undue pressure to settle a case for less than its actual value. Hiring a reputable and knowledgeable personal injury attorney will help ensure that an injured party is compensated for all of his or her rightful losses. Such losses, also known as damages, include pain and suffering, medical costs, lost wages, and impairment of future wages. In some cases, punitive damages can also be awarded when the culprit’s actions are intentional or reckless. These damages are designed to punish the offender and deter the behavior.
Our firm will handle cases on a contingency basis. This means that our fees are paid only if we secure monetary compensation for you. Due to our firm’s considerable success, our personal injury lawyers have significant economic resources at their disposal to finance your case. Firms without the necessary financial backing may be forced to settle your case too early, and for less than what it is worth.
Time is of the Essence
It is not only important to pursue all possible avenues of recovery, but also vital to act quickly to ensure that all relevant evidence is collected before it is lost, changed, or destroyed. Preserving evidence of the accident that caused the injuries is often critical to one’s case. Witnesses should be located and interviewed promptly while their recollections of the accident are still fresh. In order to begin working on your case immediately, we are available for a free consultation twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Reputation and Results
It is important for anyone who has been injured in an accident to be informed of all of his or her legal rights and options. Personal injury cases often involve complicated legal issues that are best understood by experienced accident attorneys who practice exclusively in this area of law. For more than twenty-five years, the lawyers at The Reeves Law Group have focused their energies on personal injury law. As a result, our firm’s lawyers and support personnel have gained exceptional knowledge and proficiency in this field. Our expertise translates into better results for our clients.
Recovery of Compensation
In the event a death occurs as a result of another party’s negligence or deliberate acts, the victim’s loved ones may be entitled to recover economic and non-economic damages, including loss of financial support and loss of companionship.
The loss of one’s physical abilities is devastating emotionally and physically. The financial impact can also be catastrophic to victims and their loved ones. No one injured by the careless or reckless acts of another should have to endure the economic consequences of the wrongdoer’s behavior.
