When you've been injured in an accident, the consequences can reach into almost every corner of your life. Not only do you have to deal with pain and suffering during your recovery, but you must also face enormous medical bills and other related costs. You may be unable to return to work, resulting in lost wages. You may be left wondering how you and your family will be able to cope.
Fortunately, under California law, people who are injured through the negligence of another can be compensated for the resulting damages through a personal injury lawsuit. However, getting the compensation you need can be difficult without the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
At the Law Offices of Patricia Turnage, we work on behalf of the injured to try to recover all the compensation they deserve. We help the people of Hayward and the Greater Bay Area with a variety of personal injury issues, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents of all kinds, including car crashes, commercial truck crashes and motorcycle wrecks
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Wrongful death claims
- Dog bites
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Standing Up Against Powerful Insurance Companies
One of the most difficult aspects of personal injury claims is that they pit injured people against rich and powerful insurance companies. Even when these companies do agree to pay for your damages, their highly skilled attorneys can pressure you into settling for less than you need and less than you deserve. Often, to them you're little more than a number on a balance sheet.
When the Law Offices of Patricia Turnage takes you on as a client, we make sure you feel comfortable and that we are giving your legal matter the attention it deserves. We treat every client like a human being, not a number, and we work hard to recover all the compensation that the law demands you deserve.
Trained In The Insurance Business
In addition to her knowledge of the law, our founding attorney Patricia A. Turnage has also studied the insurance industry. After becoming a lawyer, she went through a five-year program to earn certification as a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter. This experience gave her an insider's perspective into how insurance companies try to lowball the injured in an effort to increase their own profits.
