Descriptions of Legal Expertise and Practice Areas
Animal Attacks and Dog Bite Injuries
Did you know that when you have been attacked by a vicious animal or have sustained a dog bite or mauling, you have legal options for pursuing a claim against the person or people who are supposed to be in control of the animal? Not only is the dog’s owner responsible, but also the landlord if you were bitten on the premises of a rental property. The same is true if your animal attack injuries happened at an animal shelter, animal rescue, or at a zoo or petting zoo. Many times the victims of animal attacks have both physical injuries and emotional and mental trauma after the attack. You, as an innocent victim, deserve compensation for your physical and emotional injuries. Talk with the animal attack and dog bite injury lawyers at the Mehr Law Group to find out your legal options.
As a bicyclist, you understand the hazards that you face each time you go for a ride. No matter that you wear the proper gear and obey all of the traffic laws, you understand that not everyone in a car or truck is on the lookout for someone on a bicycle. The vast majority of the time, according to the bicycle accident injury lawyers at the Mehr Law Group, the bicyclist is not at fault for their bicycle accident or the resulting injuries. Instead, it is the person in the vehicle who is not paying attention, driving while distracted, speeding, or ignoring traffic laws that causes the accident. Our bike accident attorneys are ready to fight for you, with the experience and legal knowledge that you need. Call and talk with a bicycle accident expert, today.
Burn injuries are some of the most painful injuries that a person can sustain. They also leave lasting scars, compromised immune systems, and often result in the painful death of the victim. Burns result from everything from car accidents to defective products and happen at home, in the workplace, and while traveling. If you are the victim of a burn injury – a severe injury that is the result of someone’s negligence – you need to talk with the burn injury expert legal team at the Mehr Law Group. Call, now.
Like other transportation-related accidents, bus accidents can lead to innocent people being seriously injured or even dying. Whether the bus driver was at fault – distracted driving, speeding, not obey traffic laws, etc. – or there was a mechanical defect with the bus, you have rights as the victim in a bus accident and you deserve compensation from your pain and injuries. Find out more about your legal options by calling our experienced bus accident attorneys.
Every time you get into a car, even though we wear seatbelts, obey the traffic laws and rules of the road, and drive defensively, you also know that someone else driving in a aggressive or distracted manner can cause a car crash, resulting in serious injuries or death. Head-on collisions, roll-overs, side-impact collisions, and rear-end collisions not only damage the vehicles, but cause mental and physical trauma. Here at the Mehr Law Group, we have teams of legal experts who handle car accidents and car accident injuries. We are ready to argue for your best interests and ensure that you receive the assistance and compensation that are your right.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Stress Injuries
Known as repetitive stress injuries or cumulative injuries, these often happen in the workplace, when the worker has to perform a serious of motions over and over again as part of their work assignment. Carpal tunnel syndrome is perhaps the best known type of repetitive stress injury. Cumulative injuries happen over time and can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have developed a repetitive stress injury as a result of your work, you likely have grounds for a workers’ compensation claim and other legal options. Talk with our expert carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive stress injury lawyers to find out more information.
Resulting from accidents – car crashes, workplace accidents, and even slips and falls – catastrophic injuries are severe and often leave lasting physical damage, which means the innocent victim may be struggling with the effects of their catastrophic injury for the rest of their life. Common catastrophic injuries handled by our experienced injury legal team in California include: partial and full paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, damage to the central nervous system and neurological trauma, amputations, burns, damage to internal organs, and crush injuries. If you or a loved one has experienced a catastrophic injury, you are going to need long-term care and assistance. Ensure that you receive all of the help that you need by consulting with our expert catastrophic injury lawyers, now.
Construction job sites are filled with situations that can lead to construction accidents; those accidents lead to workers being seriously injured or even dying as a result of what happened. At the Mehr Law Group, we have legal teams that handle only claims related to construction site accidents. Whether you have experienced:
• A fall from a height
• A scaffolding accident or scaffolding failure
• An electrocution, electrical shock, or electrical burn
• An injury caused by heavy machinery or equipment

• A strike or impalement resulting from flying or falling tools, materials, or equipment
Or any other sort of construction site injury, we are here to support you, guide you, and ensure that you receive proper compensation for your construction accident injuries.
Whether you have a long-term, permanent disability or a temporary disability, you have legal rights that are granted to you by federal legal statutes. When your employer is not willing to acknowledge and work within these laws, when stores do not have handicap access, when your workplace does not afford you reasonable accommodations so you can work effectively and be promoted, or when you are passed over for promotion because of your disabled status, you need to act. Call and speak with the experts in disability discrimination at the Mehr Law Group, now.
Drunk Driving, DUI, and DWI Accidents
Did you know that drunk driving accidents – also referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) – account for more than 10% of all auto accidents in the United States? When someone makes the conscious decision to drive after drinking or after consuming drugs, and they cause an accident that leaves innocent people dead or injured, that person must be held accountable for their negligent actions. At the Mehr Law Group, we have legal experts who handle only drunk driving cases. With that kind of experience, you will receive the compensation that you are owed.

Drivers of vehicles may fail to look twice to see if a motorcycle is in their area, may be driving while distracted, may be speeding, may make unsafe lane changes, or may be driving in an aggressive manner. All of these scenarios mean that an innocent motorcycle rider ends-up with serious injuries that are not their fault. Here at the Mehr Law Group, we have legal experts who understand the challenges of motorcycle riders and who know how motorcycle accidents occur.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility is always a struggle. But sometimes it needs to be done, no matter how emotionally difficult the decision. You have the right to expect that your family member will be treated with respect, provided all medical care needed, and will be cared for in a safe environment.

We are here to help you.
Pedestrian accidents happen every day.

The term “personal injury” covers a wide range of situations. At the core, though, the term means that someone has suffered a preventable injury or injuries and that the injury was the result of someone’s negligent behavior or decisions.

Pools, as wonderful as they are, are also potentially hazardous. This is true whether you are swimming in a friend’s backyard pool, at a community pool, or at a health club. Children are the most likely age group to be injured in pool accidents and many times those pool-related injuries, or the death resulting from them, were preventable. If you or your child was injured in a pool accident, you need to have someone advising you and guiding you, explaining all of your legal rights and options for receiving compensation for the accident and resulting injuries.

Slip and Fall Accidents
Did you know that slip and fall accidents are the second leading cause of injuries reported in the United States? Scary but true. Slip and fall accidents happen every day in homes, in retail stores, on sidewalks, in parking lots, and in workplaces. They also happen in office buildings, museums, and every other place where people walk. Sometimes slip and fall accidents happen because of uneven walkways, other times they occur because of debris left in the walkway or inadequate lighting. Slipping and falling does not mean that you are clumsy or should have been watching where you were going. You are not at fault for your slip and fall accident and you are not responsible for your medical bills that have resulted from the accident. Instead of stressing about medical expenses, talk with our slip and fall accident experts and find out about your legal options.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Serious and sometimes fatal, spinal cord injuries often result in long-term health challenges and disability. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident, as a result of being struck by an airborne object, or slipping and falling, you have legal rights that you need to know about. Our legal experts have specialized knowledge of the laws relating to spinal cord injuries and are ready to become your legal advocates, fighting for your rights and ensuring that you receive the financial compensation that you need.

Transportation accidents – whether they involve passenger vehicles, commuter vans, buses, trains, light rail, or airplanes – mean that innocent people are injured, sometimes seriously, and that some people die as a result of the transportation accident. Whether the accident and the resulting injuries were caused by a failure to obey the traffic laws, driving while distracted, drunk driving, mechanical failure, or an issue with the roadway, such as uneven pavement, improper lighting, or lack of signage, when you are involved in a transportation accident, you have rights that you need to know about and legal options that you need to explore.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries, often called TBIs, can be caused the traffic accidents, slips and falls, machinery mishaps, and assaults. TBIs cause serious, long-term health issues for the innocent victim and may even lead to death in the most extreme cases. When someone’s negligent behavior has lead to an innocent person’s traumatic brain injury, the victim has rights. Our TBI expert legal teams are experienced with many types of brain injuries and are the strongest advocates for our traumatic brain injury clients.
Trucking, Semi, and Big Rig Accidents
Accidents that involve big rigs, semis, tractor-trailers, and other trucking scenarios usually result in the innocent drivers and passengers in the smaller vehicle being seriously injured, maimed, or killed. The most common causes of big rig accidents in California stem from: improper driver training, tired drivers, distracted drivers, and drivers who are drunk or under the influence. Occasionally big rig accidents are caused by mechanical defects or improperly maintained and serviced equipment in the tractor, the trailer, or the wheels. Do not suffer in silence, if you have been injured in a semi-truck accident. Call and speak with the trucking accident experts at Mehr Law Group, today.
Unpaid Overtime Cases
Some employers think that they can get away with not paying their workers the overtime that they are legally entitled to receive.

Work injuries happen regardless of one’s work environment. They may result from a slip and fall situation, repetitive stress or cumulative trauma, being struck by an airborne object, being the victim of workplace violence, or while traveling for work, to name but a very few causes of workplace injuries. You have rights, as an injured worker, and you cannot be fired or harassed for asserting those rights. However, you also need the legal assistance of experienced work injury lawyers. We have the experience that you need, but we cannot begin advocating for and protecting you until you retain our services.
Workers’ Compensation Claims
Every employer in California is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. That insurance is there because accidents in the workplace happen and innocent employees are injured, every day. Your employer cannot fire you if you wile a workers’ comp claim, cannot pressure you into signing away your rights to receive workers’ compensation for your injuries, and cannot stop you from seeing a doctor and receiving medical care for your on-the-job injuries. Here at the Mehr Law Group, we have experienced workers’ compensation legal teams, ready to ensure that you receive the workers’ compensation that is your right.
Workplace Toxic Exposures
Exposures to toxic and hazardous materials in the workplace account for many workers’ compensation and injured workers’ claims. Toxic materials range from chemicals to molds and include gases and fluids, as well. Resulting injuries from workplace toxic exposures can lead to burns, lung issues and permanent lung damage, and blindness. In extreme cases, they may even lead to death. Your exposure to toxic materials at your place of work was not your fault and you are covered by workers’ compensation.
Resulting from everything from car accidents to workplace violence and including medical malpractice, nursing home neglect or abuse, attacks by animals, recreational accidents, and defective or dangerous products, wrongful death leaves a family feeling bewildered, angry, and not knowing how to proceed. At the Mehr Law Group, we specialize in working with those people who have lost a loved one in a wrongful death situation, whatever the cause of death. To find out more information, including how best to receive financial compensation for your loss, call, today.
