What is Negligence?
Negligence is essentially the failure to act with the care expected of a reasonable person. For people operating motor vehicles, this definition encompasses a wide array of situations, from a person distracted by a cell phone, to speeding and reckless driving, to driving under the influence.

Our car accident lawyers have successfully represented people throughout Northern California. We know when a catastrophic auto accident occurs, there is more than just loss of wages and medical costs to cover. Mental stress and anguish are often equally incapacitating and deserve compensation. If you contact our attorneys, we can meet with you free of charge, and if we take your case, we will charge no attorneys’ fees unless and until you receive compensation.

Our Firm is Experienced in Litigation
While many personal injury cases settle without the need for litigation (the filing of a lawsuit or “complaint”), it is of paramount importance that the law firm you hire to handle your personal injury case is capable of handling your matter through the stages of litigation. Our attorneys go to Court on a daily basis, and are experienced in litigating cases. Our office will handle your case from the beginning stages, and if necessary, through trial to jury verdict or court judgment, to achieve the best possible result.

Wrongful Death

Have you suffered the loss of a loved one due to the negligence or fault of someone else?

The loss of a loved one affects you in so many ways: Loss of affection, companionship and love. If there are young children and/or young grandchildren the loss of help in raising them and guiding them to be successful with good values. And of course the loss of a loved one can make things so difficult financially for you. You need a lawyer who is sensitive to the issues of your particular case, and lawyer who is accessible in your time of need.

Damages permitted in a wrongful death case may typically include:

Medical, hospital, funeral and burial expenses, compensation for the decedent’s pain and suffering, during any period of consciousness between the time of injury and death.

As the decedent’s spouse, children, or next of kin, you may be entitled to loss of financial support, loss of service, loss of gifts or other valuable gratuities, loss of parental training and guidance, loss of society and companionship

Motorcycle Accidents

PictureFor many individuals, riding a motorcycle is a way of life. With gasoline prices at an all time high, many new riders are switching to motorcycles and scooters. Unfortunately, motorcycles can pose serious risks as they lack the physical protection automobiles offer. Cars have airbags, seat belts, sheet metal and superior safety. For motorcycle riders, the protection is limited to riding gear such as a helmet and leathers. Motorcyclists are less visible, and more susceptible to serious injury posed by other drivers, defective roadway design, harsh weather conditions, and product defects. Victims may sustain broken limbs, road rash,brain injuries, and other harm, including death. In 2000 alone, 2,862 motorcyclists were killed, and another 58,000 were injured. If motorcyclists do survive their crashes, they may face large medical bills, job loss, permanent disability, and other hardships.

If you have been invovled in a motorcycle collision, contact the Law Office of Joel Carash today to schedule a consulation with an attorney so your legal rights are protected. Our office is experienced in handling motorcycle accidents cases involving serious injuries.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration?s 2004 Safety Fact Sheet:

  • In 2004, 4,008 motorcyclists were killed and an additional 76,000 were injured in motorcycle accidents.
  • Motorcycle occupants are about 32 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle accident and 6 times more likely to be seriously injured.
