Whether your injury case involves a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, medical malpractice, construction accident, slip and fall, products liability, or wrongful death, our firm has the experience you need on your side.
Under the legal principles of negligence, all people have a duty to act reasonably under the given circumstances, and when people breach that duty, they may be liable for the injuries their actions cause. Therefore, if you have been injured by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and reimbursement for hospital bills and lost wages. At our firm, we understand California personal injury law, and we have the experience to gather the evidence you need to prove a variety of claims.
For example, car accidents are some of the most common events that lead to personal injury lawsuits. Motor vehicle accidents can have several different causes, each of which may be actionable, including:
- Negligent drivers;
- Defective automobile components;
- Inadequate safety systems; or
- Defective road surfaces.
Stephen M. Fuerch has litigated numerous auto accident cases on behalf of East Bay residents. He knows how to investigate the cause of the accident, deal with insurers, and negotiate effectively on your behalf. He will fight hard to protect your rights, and help you seek the compensation to which you are entitled.
In the related realm of products liability law, designers and manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure that the products they sell to consumers are safe and effective.

Fuerch, we can help you recover money for injuries inflicted by a defective product and ensure that other consumers do not needlessly suffer.
Finally, property owners, especially those with businesses that are open to the public, have a duty to keep their premises safe and warn visitors of any hidden dangers.
