personal injury cases.

Types of Employment Law Cases
We handle all types of employment law cases. We often get clients who have become victims of discrimination, whether that is
age discrimination or other types of unfair treatment. Sometimes employees receive unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances, making them the victims of
sexual harassment. Sometimes employment law matters revolve around payment, such as issues involving
unpaid wages, and
wage and overtime disputes. If an employee feels that he or she has been penalized by an employer for acting as a
whistleblower, we can help the employee address that issue. Sometimes employers also need our assistance when their employees have violated certain agreement terms, therefore placing their businesses at risk.
California has certain laws about how employees are allowed to be treated. When employers or other individuals in the workplace violate these laws, we can take aggressive legal action on the victims' behalf to ensure that the responsible party is held liable. Don't let yourself get pushed around—instead, demand the financial compensation and corrective action that is rightfully due!
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Injuries can happen anywhere and at any time. With the busy roads and freeways of the San Fernando Valley, there are even more opportunities for auto accidents to occur. There are many individuals on the road who do not drive responsibly and therefore cause accidents that injure other people. Some of the types of motor vehicle accidents we handle include
truck accidents and
rollover accidents. We help victims in these incidents seek financial compensation for their injuries from the responsible parties.
We also assist victims of accidents and injuries caused by defective products. For example, if a driver was injured because his or her vehicle had a faulty car part, the victim can file an insurance claim or a lawsuit against the car part manufacturer. These types of cases are called product liability cases. Other types of products that are often involved in these types of cases include medications, medical devices and children's toys. We handle all types of injuries, such as
burn injuries and
brain and spine injuries, among many others.
