Every time we make the important decision as a driver to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, we take on a huge responsibility for the welfare and safety of all others on the road. When a driver’s negligent and reckless behaviors or actions cause the serious injury or death of an innocent person, the negligent driver must be held liable.

What To Do After A Car Accident
When you or a loved one is involved in an accident, it can be a very frustrating and difficult situation. Remember, the more information you get at the scene of the accident, the more favorable this can be for you down the road. Below are some very important tips to keep in mind during a stressful auto accident:
• Stay calm, stay collected, and take a deep breath
• Get the name, address, and phone number of the other driver
• Get the insurance information for the other driver, including their policy number
• Take down the license plate, the year, make, model, and color of the other car
• Check for injuries, and please call the police and ambulance when in doubt
• If the accident is minor, move the cars to the side of the road away from traffic and in a safe place
• Turn your hazard lights on
• Do NOT sign any documents, unless they are for the police or an insurance agent
• Be polite, and never admit fault
• Contact your insurance agent and notify them immediately about what transpired
We understand that the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one is devastating and challenging. In such a time, it is difficult to determine what course of action to take. When a parent, spouse, child, domestic partner, has been lost as a result of someone’s negligence, it is best to contact a wrongful death attorney immediately to discuss your legal options. For example, deaths caused by a dangerous or defective product, a drunk driver, the construction of an unsound building, or failing to diagnose a medial condition may be “wrongful death” under California law.

Product liability law deals with cases involving defective and/or unsafe products. Millions of products are purchased daily, and we all have the expectation that they will perform safely and as we expect them to. Unfortunately, not all products live up to their expectations and safety standards.
Manufacturers and sellers are expected to provide adequate warnings about possible dangers, and to include adequate and explicit instructions of use. For this reason, when they do not, we must hold the manufacturer, wholesalers, and/or retailers responsible for compensating those injured individuals who have been hurt by their product. This is where The CAPITAL Law Firm’s attorney’s come into play.
At The CAPITAL Law Firm, we will make sure to hire experts with specialized knowledge about the specific product in question to evaluate the design of the product, the circumstances surrounding the failure, and other similar products to determine why the product failed and how much compensation you are entitled to. We know what to do, and will do whatever it takes to ensure that the accident victim and their loved ones are fully compensated for their damages.

A burn injury is among the most unbearable and painful injuries that people suffer and they can happen in a number of different circumstances. These injuries can result from heat, radioactivity, radiation, chemicals, or even electricity.

Brain and spinal cord injuries are often life-altering and permanent for those injuries and their loved ones. Sadly, resuming your daily life and getting back on your feet is demanding after a serious head or spinal cord injury. The CAPITAL Law Firm is here to help you every step of the way.
Anyone can be the victim of a brain injury, and the repercussions can cause life-altering injuries or even death. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused in many different ways, such as a motor vehicle accident, a motorcycle accident, slip/trip and falls, sports injuries, and violence. In some instances, a brain injury can result from a medical event, such as anoxia (loss of oxygen in the brain) or hypoxia, stroke, tumors, and more.
It is crucial to make sure you get the appropriate treatment if you ever suspect you are suffering from a brain injury. The symptoms depend highly on the uniqueness of the individual and the severity of the trauma sustained. On the more severe end, a brain injury can highly impair an individual’s ability to function and can cause one to lose consciousness. A moderate to severe brain injury can cause cognitive, physical, and/or behavioral/ emotional impairment. Some brain injuries can lead to what is referred to as a “post-concussion” syndrome.
If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, it is highly imperative that you consult with The CAPITAL Law Firm immediately to preserve your rights. We will help you through these toughest of times and do all we can to recover the rightful compensation you are entitled to. Our attorneys have the experience, tools, and resources to help people suffering from traumatic brain injuries. We will help you get a proper diagnosis and full compensation for your injuries.
Spinal Cord Injuries
An individual can suffer from a spinal cord injury in several ways, such as: a motor vehicle accident, a motorcycle accident, a trucking accident, a slip/trip and fall, or even through recreational sports or an act of violence. It is very important to seek medical attention and to speak with an attorney should you suspect a spinal cord injury, because medical treatment at the outset can help limit the symptoms of spinal injuries, and can potentially prevent your life and body from being significantly damaged.
If you have been involved in an accident, some signs of a spinal injury can include, but not be limited to:
• Difficult or strained breathing
• Pain or pressure in your neck, back and head
• Loss of control over your bowels and bladder
• Loss of sensation, numbness, or tingling in your fingers, hands, toes or feet
• Lack of coordination in certain parts of your body
• Headaches and/or migraine headaches

With every year that comes and goes, animals bite millions of people and dogs bite a large number of these individuals. Though some bites can be minimal, many victims suffer severe injuries that come with much emotional distress. Recovering from an animal or dog bite can be long and painful. For this reason, you need The CAPITAL Law Firm’s dog bite attorney on your side and working for you to ease the process!
If you have been injured by an animal or a dog in the State of California, the law may be on your side. You may be entitled to compensation for the cost of medical treatment, both present and future, along with your physical and emotional pain and suffering, and any income you lost due to the time you had to take off work because of your injuries.
In California, the owner of a dog can be held “strictly liable” liable for your injuries, whether in a public place or lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s property. Even if the dog does not have any prior known attacks, or that the owner may not have knowledge of a dog’s viciousness, this is not a determinative factor. Under the California dog bite statute, a person can still be liable for damages even if they used ordinary care and were not negligent.
We are here with you every step of the way, to make sure we hold those responsible for the actions of their dog. The CAPITAL Law Firm’s animal and dog bite attorneys will make sure you receive experienced and fair representation at all times.
