Blind spots, negligent lane changing and inattentive driving by other drivers on the road has caused many motorcyclists in California to suffer life-altering injuries or lose their life in a motorcycle accident. At the Santa Ana law firm of Berman More Gonzalez Attorneys at Law, we advocate for motorcycle accident victims and their families by working for full compensation and justice. Simply because you ride a motorcycle does not mean an accident is your fault.
* SUV Rollovers
On the roads across America, the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) has become the vehicle of choice for many families and individuals. However, due to their higher center of gravity they are prone to rolling over even in an accident that may have seemed minor. These rollover motor vehicle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries and death not just because of the rolling action, but defective and unsafe elements that may be incorporated into the SUV's roof and roof supports.
* Bicycle Accidents
Bicyclists who choose to conserve fuel, protect the environment or just enjoy a day out riding with friends or family have the right to expect that the drivers sharing the road will act in a safe and responsible way.

* Drunk Driving Accidents
Car accidents are rarely a result of choice. Few people driving a car choose to look away at just the wrong moment or to lose control of their vehicle, but drunk driving accidents are different. At some point, one has to choose to drink and drive, and the results are often devastating. Our lawyers work with clients who have suffered at the hands of an irresponsible, careless and intoxicated driver. Our lawyers get results and hold the right people responsible.
* Uninsured and Underinsured Motorists
According to the Insurance Research Council, as many as one quarter (25 percent) of all drivers on California roads have no insurance at all. Many more have only the minimum $15,000 liability policy, which is completely inadequate to address even a mild car crash with a minimum of injuries. If you have been injured in a car accident where the other driver has no insurance or not enough insurance, you need to work with someone who can help you get results and compensation.

We offer comfort, sensitivity, and support to these family members while advocating for justice.

If you have been injured at an amusement park, it is important to speak with a lawyer that understands cases like yours immediately. Do not wait to protect your right to financial recovery.
Electrocution injuries can happen almost anywhere. Many people who suffer serious electric shock injuries do so while on the job. Many of those injured are conducting some kind of repair and are working with the expectation that power to nearby exposed wiring is off. In most cases, it is someone else's mistake that leads to catastrophic electrocution injury or wrongful death. Your case could involve both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury action.
- NFL and Professional Sports Injuries
The collisions, impacts and hits an NFL or NHL player may have endured over even a single season are like nothing that most people experience in a year, a decade or a lifetime. If you as a former NFL, NBA, NHL, or MLB player have been struggling with long-term injury, disability or pain from playing a professional sport, you may be owed substantial compensation and medical treatment. State and federal governments recognize the mistreatment of former professional sports figures and are taking action to make sure you now have a fair right to the compensation you are owed for the injuries you suffered.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury, it is important to consult with an attorney who can help you or your loved one fully pursue the compensation needed now and in the future.

Often times the parents or spouse are forgotten in these cases. We represent clients who have suffered severe and catastrophic injuries.

More of Berman More Gonzalez Attorneys at Law understands these spinal cord cases and will aggressively do everything to get his clients the medical treatment, home healthcare, attendant care, supplies and in some cases housing when needed.

At the Santa Ana law firm of Berman More Gonzalez, Attorneys at Law, we represent burn injury victims suffering from second or third degree burns, inhalation injuries and other serious injuries caused by the carelessness or recklessness of others.
- Workers' Compensation

More fights to get his clients the benefits they need to get back into the workplace.
