Help For Injured Oakland, CA Accident Victims
East of the San Francisco Bay, Oakland holds the largest city and county seat in Alameda Bay, California. The city offers plenty of local attractions for tourists and residents alike. Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned and, sometimes, an accident can turn a great day of sightseeing or a morning commute into disaster.
While accidents can have a variety of consequences, recovering time, money and health lost is often a process. At Kuvara Law Firm in Oakland, our goal is to help accident victims get back to their lives as soon as possible. Our skilled attorneys handle a variety of accident-based cases including motorcycle accidents and even medical malpractice.

When you, as a consumer, purchase a product, you have reasonable expectations about the quality and safety of that product. It is up to the manufacturer to ensure that any product sold on the market follows certain health and safety codes. Unfortunately, manufacturers make mistakes and, sometimes, defective products create accidental injuries for consumers. In this case, the manufacturer should be held liable for the problem.
Work Related Accidents
If you are injured at work in Oakland, it may be because your employer is lax with health and safety codes. While it is important that employees are careful on the job and that they follow safety precautions, creating a reasonably safe work environment is the employer’s responsibility. If your injury was due to employer carelessness, you need to contact a lawyer and receive compensation from your employer’s insurance company.
Despite years of training, medical professionals make mistakes- they are human, after all. Unfortunately, these mistakes can sometimes be due to carelessness and can lead to serious problems for patients. If you or a loved one has been misdiagnosed with a condition, were not diagnosed properly, or have received improper medication or even surgery, calling a medical malpractice lawyer can be the first step to getting your life back in order.
Death is the worst possible outcome of an accident. The thought that a death could have been prevented may be a lot to bear. But if you do think that the accident was avoidable, an personal injury attorney can help you fight for justice by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you’re an Oakland resident and you happen to drive, you already know that the city has its fair share of car accidents. While California law requires all drivers to carry insurance, the insurance companies are often going to pay the minimum for any car accident related damage. If you are involved in an accident- even if the insurance company is taking their time deliberating- having a lawyer on your side can help ensure that you get a fair settlement.
Despite the occasional chill from the Bay, Oakland has a great urban environment for alternative transportation- including bicycles. Unfortunately, cyclists don’t have the same protection that drivers enjoy and, as a result, are much more likely to sustain serious injury in an accident. If you have been in a bicycle accident, especially if this was the fault of a careless driver, Kuvara Law Firm in Oakland can help.
Like cyclists, pedestrians are also vulnerable to cars. While the rules of the road often give pedestrians priority at designated crossings, a distracted or careless driver can cause the pedestrian serious injury. People on foot may also be vulnerable to motorcycles or bicycles or even trucks. If you’ve been in an accident as a pedestrian, you have likely sustained more serious injury, which means that getting compensation for medical care is a priority. Kuvara Law Firm is here to help ensure that you get a fair settlement in a timely manner.
Motorcycles are considered a risky form of transportation because you are reaching higher speeds without the traditional protections of an automobile. If you have an accident while riding your motorcycle, you are much more likely to sustain dangerous injury. Unfortunately, not all drivers are attentive and considerate about sharing the road. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, insurance will provide compensation. However, insurance companies do as much as possible to minimize their payout and to delay settlement. At Kuvara Law Firm in Oakland, we want to make sure that you have more than enough to cover your bills.
While rare, train accidents can be devastating. Unfortunately, with plenty of people involved, it can be challenging for train accident victims to receive just compensation for their injuries. At Kuvara Law Firm, we handle the appropriate paperwork and make sure that you receive a settlement while you focus on recovery.
Like train accidents, airplane accidents don’t happen often. In most cases, however, a plane crash can lead to serious, life-threatening injuries and even death. If you’ve been involved in an airplane accident, consulting an attorney is the wisest course of action.
A carefree day on a boat can turn bad quickly if there is an accident on the boat or overboard. Accidents can occur on any boat and the severity of an injury will often depend on the nature of the accident. If you’re injured on a boat, a lawyer can help you figure out the next best step.
When you are on someone else’s property, your safety, to an extent, becomes their responsibility. If you are injured in someone’s house or by someone’s pet, that individual may be responsible for your medical bills. A premises liability lawyer can help you figure out whether a claim is justified in your particular situation.
As a large city, Oakland has all types of vehicles on the road. Trucks, in particular, can be intimidating because of their sheer size and weight. Even if you own a larger vehicle, you are still unlikely to fare well in a collision with a commercial truck. Truck accidents can result from a variety of factors, which is why many truck accident victims struggle with obtaining compensation. A Kuvara Law Firm truck accident lawyer will be happy to help you figure out your next steps.
As with truck and train accidents, bus accidents can be tricky. If you are injured in a bus accident, you may not be sure who to contact or know how to go about obtaining compensation. In this case, calling a Oakland personal injury lawyer can be your first step to success.
Protecting The Rights Of Oakland, California Accident Victims Since 1971
Being injured is challenging enough without having to fight insurance companies for compensation. Unfortunately, most insurance companies are greedy and will work hard to pay as little as possible. Even if you have “good” insurance and are paying high premiums, your insurance company will work against you when it’s time to pay for your care, or for repairs after an accident.
At our firm, we know that waiting is not always an option, which is why we strive for maximum compensation with minimum time spent. Contact Kuvara Law Firm today to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our Oakland personal injury attorneys and find out how we can help you recover.
