Areas of Law Description

Appel Law Firm LLP provides legal representation and services in the following areas of practice:

- Construction Accidents

We have a long track record of successfully helping victims injured in construction accidents. We have also represented families of victims who have died in construction accidents.

- Motor Vehicle Accidents

Millions of motor vehicle accidents occur every year, so insurance companies have gotten good at defending themselves against claims. We have decades of experience and the financial resources needed to ensure your legal rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you’re entitled to for lost wages, pain and suffering, physical injury, and medical bills.

- Nursing Home Abuse

No one should suffer physical and emotional abuse in a nursing home, care facility, or institution. Unfortunately, we see it happening every day. As baby boomers age, incidences of neglect and abuse will climb ever higher. It is intolerable that the most vulnerable in society should become victims of schemes to steal their money, property, identity, dignity, and well-being.

- Personal Injury

Personal injury law holds people or organizations accountable for the harm they cause others. Victims of injury due to the fault of another – physical, financial, emotional, or cognitive – are allowed to get compensation for their injuries, past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, and pain and suffering.

- Products Liability

Consumers face a host of product liability risks during everyday life – from unsafe toys and car seats, failing air bags, and contaminated food to occupational hazards such as asbestos exposure and defective machinery. If you, a family member, friend, or coworker has been injured by a dangerous or defective product, you have the legal right to be compensated.

- Workers' Compensation

In California, workers' compensation is a series of laws that provide workers' compensation benefits to those persons injured due to working conditions, including heavy lifting, defective machinery and equipment, dangerous premises, repetitive stress injuries, etc.

- Wrongful Death

In a wrongful death claim, those entitled to bring such a claim are entitled to just compensation for the loss each has suffered by reason of the death of their loved one. In determining this loss, various items are analyzed and these items include: (1) financial support (2) right to receive support (3) age of the deceased and (4) respective life expectancy of the deceased. Each entitled person also can receive reasonable compensation for the loss of love, companionship, comfort, affection, society, solace, or moral support of the decedent. Finally, funeral and medical costs are a part of the legal analysis.
