Areas of Law Description
Demas Law Group provides legal representation on the following areas of practice:
- Personal Injury
* Accident Injury
While unfortunate circumstances create some accidents, others are caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of careless individuals. If you've been injured due to the negligence or recklessness of another, you must take immediate steps to protect and enforce your legal rights. These goals are best achieved by hiring an experienced Sacramento accident injury lawyer. When you obtain the help of a highly experienced Sacramento accident injury lawyer - one who has been representing other seriously injured clients for nearly 20 years -- you can rest assured that justice will be obtained.
* Catastrophic Injury
When people suffer catastrophic injuries, they may face almost innumerable serious and dangerous challenges in their lives. They may have to undergo multiple surgical procedures, cope with extended hospital stays and survive significant losses of income if they cannot return to work for lengthy periods of time. These most severely injured individuals must also usually endure the most intense pain and suffering, coupled with rather staggering, overall quality of life deficits. If you or someone you love has been severely and/or permanently injured, they should immediately obtain the help of experienced Sacramento catastrophic injury lawyers so they can try and minimize their lifelong losses.
* Child Injury
As many people know, injured children do not have the right to file California personal injury lawsuits by themselves. They need parents to handle such situations for them - adults who can hire experienced Sacramento child injury lawyers. Only experienced attorneys have the depth of legal knowledge required to help distraught parents obtain the various types of help their recently injured child will need. Here's a brief list of some of the places or events often involved with children's injuries:
• School bus accidents
• Improper child supervision
• Sports or recreation accidents
• Defective product injuries
• Playground equipment accidents
• Dog bite injuries
• Intentional child abuse
* Dog Bites
Victims of dog bites often suffer more than just the physical harm caused by the dog. Emotional damage is also a factor when dogs attack, and the compensation you get should reflect this. The right attorney can help you get the money you deserve on top of any medical bills or time off work. There are exceptions to the owner's liability. For instance, the owner is not liable for injuries imposed on those people trespassing, committing a felony, provoking the dog, or injured by a police dog at the time of the incident. In any case, you case must be presented to prove the identity of the dog's owner and that the dog did in fact bite you without provocation. The right lawyer can prove the pain and suffering you endured as well as the emotional harm inflicted on you due to the attack.
* Traumatic Brain Injuries
The effects of a blow to the head can be shattering. Your whole life can change in an instant. No matter what the cause, an accident can leave you and your family having to deal with serious medical and legal issues. You need a tough personal injury lawyer to pursue all avenues of the law to get you the compensation you deserve. Although automobile accidents are the most common causes, head injuries can occur in bicycle or motorcycle wrecks, falls and sporting accidents.
* Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries involving the spine can be incredibly debilitating. These types of injuries might force you to quit working, stop playing the sports you enjoy, and if severe enough might actually confine you to a wheelchair for the rest of your life. It is no surprise that an accident leading to a spinal injury might eventually wind up in litigation, because the medical bills alone can grow exponentially. Medical bills aren't the only concern that an injured person should have, and California spinal injury lawyers can assist injured people in wading through the various issues associated with this type of injury.
* Wrongful Death
When someone is killed because of the actions of someone else, there are few if any real positives that can result. However, there is an avenue for justice for families who have endured this tremendous loss, as all of the costs and losses described above can be recaptured if the family that’s left behind files a successful California wrongful death lawsuit. These California wrongful death lawsuits can be difficult to manage and to successfully complete, as the law also provides the other side with a right to build a defense. Therefore, people in this position need to obtain the help of Sacramento wrongful death lawyers who understand what it takes to obtain justice for families that are suffering from this type of loss.
- Vehicle Accidents
* Car Accidents
Given our state's freeway system, Californians find themselves in cars quite a bit. Plenty of Californians work within a city yet live in a suburb that's half an hour to an hour or more away; it's no wonder that car accidents can occur with regularity. Traffic, gridlock, drivers on cell phones—there's just no escaping it, and every now and then, accidents resulting in serious injury occur. At Demas Law Group we can offer you experienced legal help following your car accident. We know that you have more important things to do than fight insurance companies, like recover from your injuries and regain control over your life.
* DWI/DUI Accident
Drunk (or drugged) driving, also known as “Driving while intoxicated” or “Driving under the influence” is a serious problem with serious consequences. At Demas Law Group, we have substantial experience as California DUI lawyers, and we can help you get the compensation you deserve for injuries resulting from an accident that involved alcohol or drug use. Even if you are offered what seems like a good settlement by the other driver's insurance, run it by an experienced DUI accident attorney to be sure. At Demas Law Group, we have decades of collective experience dealing with insurance companies in all types of situations, and we have a good sense of what you can expect from a DUI accident injury settlement.
* Uninsured/Under-Insured Motorists
"Uninsured motorist" means that the person responsible for your injuries is operating a vehicle without any insurance coverage whatsoever. If you have purchased uninsured motorist coverage, you will be able to collect from your insurance company to recoup your damages (both property and personal). "Underinsured motorist" means that the person responsible for your injuries has opted to purchase only the minimum policy required by law. If you have purchased underinsured motorist coverage, you will be able to collect from your insurance company to recoup your damages (both property and personal) that exceed the responsible party's limits.
* Motorcycle Accidents
Since motorcycles generally do not provide a comparable level of protection from collisions as a car or truck does, many cases brought to court for motorcycle accidents may involve a need for extensive medical care. People injured on a motorcycle may face injuries that will remain with them for an extended period of time – if not for the rest of their lives – and we recognize that your compensation should include claims for continued care, loss of wages, and other types of damages. At Demas Law Group, we have years of experience as California motorcycle attorneys; we can provide the legal assistance you need to prove driver negligence and win your claim for damages.
* Pedestrian Accidents
Motor vehicle operators have a responsibility to adhere to the laws of the road and drive in a safe and observant manner at all times. Pedestrians are injured and killed every day due to a driver's negligence. Pedestrians who are hit by motor vehicles may have a claim against the driver but they must prove that the driver was negligent and his negligence caused the accident. The very nature of the circumstances (3,000 pound car versus unprotected pedestrian) suggests that the driver would ultimately be responsible; however pedestrians must also adhere to the laws of the road.
* Bus Accidents
More and more people are using buses to not only move around town, but also to take trips with groups of others in order to save money on fuel and air fare and to avoid the responsibilities that come with driving. Unfortunately, this does not mean that bus accidents do not occur, as they do, and when these situations arise, they often lead to disaster. Anyone who has been harmed in such a situation needs to seek the help of experienced Sacramento bus accidents lawyers.
* Bicycle Accidents
Over the past 10 years, bicycling has become extremely popular in the United States. It is a convenient and inexpensive method of travel, especially in large cities where traffic is congested and parking spaces are difficult to find. High tech materials and fabrication have now made bicycle riding virtually effortless and many families enjoy exploring the countryside on bicycles. Many cities now recognize the increase in bike traffic and have constructed special bike lanes. Parks have now made trails accessible to bicycles. Even some vehicle manufacturers are now offering bike racks as standard equipment.
* Truck Accidents
The California truck accident attorneys at Demas Law Group possess long-term expertise with truck accidents of all types. With congested roads and freeways, such accidents can be relatively common. Injuries may result from accidents involving smaller trucks, such as delivery vehicles or contractor trucks; however, the trucks that probably cause the most concern for drivers of smaller cars are the huge semi-trucks that pepper the highways. The freeways are rarely without these massive vehicles, and for many drivers in the state these trucks have a huge potential to cause dangerous accidents. Drivers of these trucks, too, may fall victim to unsafe practices on the part of the trucking company for whom they are working.
* Boating Accidents
California, with close to one million registered recreational vessels, has the second highest water sport accident rate in the United States. Boating, jet skiing, water skiing and other water sports are popular activities in our Golden State. These activities, while entertaining and exciting, pose unique dangers of personal injury and wrongful death and complex legal and safety issues could be involved. Any injury that occurs on or with a boat, ship, ferry or personal water craft (jet ski) is considered a boating accident. Legal claims involving water accidents can involve complex legal and technical issues. The Law Offices of Demas Law Group is experienced in handling complex lawsuits involving injuries sustained in boating accidents.
* Train Accidents
Trains and railroads remain a constant in the United States even as our society continues to modernize seemingly every day. While most of us merely hear trains and dismiss them, train traffic remains enormously high, as this mode of transportation moves cargo and passengers 24 hours per day. Unfortunately, a high number of train accidents occur, and if you or someone you love has been harmed in such an occurrence, you need to seek the help of Sacramento train accidents lawyers immediately.
- Product Liability
If you've experienced a problem with a defective or dangerous product, you may have a product liability case on your hands. Some dangerous products have been part of large suits due to widespread problems, or have been subject to recall. Sometimes, it seems like there's a dangerous product lurking in the most innocent of places; contaminated food, flammable children's clothing, lead-painted toys, and more.
- Medical Malpractice
When someone is harmed because of negligent medical care, that person could face additional illnesses, pain and suffering, additional surgeries or even death. In addition, the process of holding medical professionals accountable for the harm they have inflicted can be difficult given the technical and professional atmosphere in which this conduct took place. Below are just a few examples of medical malpractice that occur commonly:
• Surgical errors
• Prescription errors
• Failure to diagnose a disease
• Failure to monitor vital signs
• Operating on the wrong limb
• Anesthesia errors
- Nursing Home Abuse
The statistics on nursing home and elderly abuse are grim. Conservative estimates state that one of three homes in America will be affected in some way by abuse of an elder relative while in a nursing home. With the elderly population growing rapidly, nursing home residents nationwide number over 1.6 million. Currently, there are over 17,000 registered nursing home and elder care facilities. This number is expected to rise to 5 million in the next three decades. Sadly, as the number of nursing home residents increases, so does the frequency of abuse.
