Severe Personal Injury and Wrongful Death in Santa Barbara

Our services are focused, experienced, and professional, and our firm only handles serious personal injury matters in Santa Barbara. Some of the cases that we tackle include the following:

  • Serious Motor Vehicle Accidents: Our office focuses on accidents that lead to severe injury or death. These include head-on collisions, large truck crashes, or severe pedestrian accidents.
  • Products Liability: If your vehicle crash resulted from a design defect or dangerous manufacturing, we could help you collect the evidence and get the testimonies you need to build a product liability case.
  • Premises Liability: These cases come after slip and fall accidents, including poorly constructed walkways or inadequate warnings.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): We call upon qualified experts to prove cases of traumatic brain injury, which can occur after an accident or fall. TBI is usually life-altering and does not always reveal itself right after a person gets injured.
  • Wrongful Death: We've helped families file claims after someone passes away due to negligence or recklessness by another person. Plaintiffs can receive compensation for things like medical bills and burial costs.
