Alameda County Personal Injury Attorney
Standing Up for the Rights of the Wrongfully Injured
The pain, frustration, inconvenience, and costs of an accident are magnified when the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. At The Law Offices of Caroline J. Nasseri, we believe that those responsible for an accident should be held accountable.
We aggressively represent our Alameda County personal injury clients, fighting for the compensation they deserve.
Injuries & Fatalities in California Accidents
Statistics show that California roads can be a deadly place. In 2019, more than 10,500 people were killed or injured in crashes in Alameda County alone. Passenger vehicles, light trucks, and motorcycles account for the majority of the accidents, but larger truck crashes can also have devastating consequences.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, California has the second-highest number of fatalities involving trucks. With 408 deaths in 2019, the Golden State trailed only Texas. Alameda County roads are also prone to bottlenecks. Congestion increases the likelihood of truck accidents because trucks take longer and need more roadway to stop than typical passenger cars.
Driver fatigue, distracted driving, improper load securing, and alcohol/drug use are among the top causes behind these dangerous crashes. Not only could the truck driver be held liable for an accident, but the trucking company and other third parties might also bear responsibility.
Our personal injury attorney will sift through every detail to determine the strategy best suited for your case and fight for every responsibility part to pay their share.
Attorney Nasseri dedicates her Alameda County practice to personal injury cases such as the following:
Accidents Don’t Always Happen Behind the Wheel
While California is known for having the most automobile registrations (more than 14 million) but many accidents have nothing to do with our roads.
Our firm’s experience includes extensive knowledge in the following injury cases:
No matter the source or location of an accident, the most serious cases involve catastrophic injuries or wrongful death. Catastrophic injuries leave a person unable to ever work again and impact every aspect of their life. A wrongful death deprives a family of the love, companionship, and support of that person. We have tremendous compassion for the victims and will go to battle with insurance companies or in front of a jury.
Don’t Wait to Bring a Personal Injury Lawsuit
While there are a few exceptions, most personal injury lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of the accident. If the injury was not discovered right away, then the statute of limitations calls for the lawsuit to be filed within one year of discovery. California’s Code of Civil Procedure designates the timeframe in which all civil actions may be taken.
California places no caps on the amount of compensatory damages that can be recovered, except in the cases of medical malpractice. Compensatory damages include medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses related to the accident. Pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and emotional distress also fall into this category. Punitive damages may also be awarded to punish the responsible party for their malicious or incredibly reckless behavior that caused the accident.
Comprehensive Personal Injury Law for Alameda County Residents
Attorney Nasseri brings her 35 years of experience in personal injury and insurance defense to each case she takes. Her thorough understanding of the tactics employed by insurance companies gives her unique insight into how to neutralize their strategy.
Many people who are injured don’t have discretionary income to pay a retainer for legal services. For this reason, our clients do not pay one penny upfront. We are only paid a fair percentage of any settlement winnings.
