The Law Offices of Robert Wallenstein focus exclusively on handling personal injury matters resulting in serious injury or death. Personal injury cases cover a broad area of law. The California laws and procedures related to personal injury are complicated and require a skilled personal injury lawyer to properly navigate an injury victim's case through the process. Attorney Robert Wallenstein has the necessary experience and ability to provide personal injury/accident legal solutions to the residents of San Diego, Imperial, Riverside and Orange counties in the following areas:
California Vehicle Accidents
Legal claims that arise from vehicle accidents are typically governed by the law of negligence. Any individual who negligently operates a motor vehicle may be required to pay damages to an injured victim. A personal injury case involving a vehicle accident may become formalized through civil court proceedings, or may be resolved through an informal settlement before a lawsuit is filed. Vehicle accidents can include car accidents, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents, semi tractor trailer accidents and truck accidents, to name a few. Anyone injured by a drunk driver may be able to bring a claim for punitive damages against the responsible defendant.
California Pedestrian Accidents
Legal claims involving pedestrians are also governed by the law of negligence. Pedestrians are generally afforded the right of way when they are walking across an intersection or street. A pedestrian can file a lawsuit and receive compensation for his or her injuries if someone else's negligence caused or contributed to the incident. Negligence is the legal term for the failure to behave reasonably to protect others from foreseeable risks of one's actions or inactions. Serious injury Attorney Robert Wallenstein helps clients to meet the legal requirements necessary to receive fair compensation under California law.
This type of case involves proving that a decedent was killed as a result of negligence (or other liability) on the defendant's part, and that the decedent's legal heirs are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the defendant's conduct. The most common heirs are the surviving spouse, children or parents.
California Firearm Injuries
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a firearm, you are not alone. According to government statistics, 73% of homicides are committed with firearms, 66% specifically with handguns. Victims age 18-29 have the highest rate of death by firearms. Even if a person did not mean to injure anyone with a firearm, he or she may be liable for any resulting harm caused by the accidental firing of a gun. Contact serious injury Attorney Robert Wallenstein at 619-685-5388 for more information about your potential case involving a firearm injury.
California Dog Bites
Enforced by state and local statutes, dog owners are responsible for preventing their pets from harming others. Dog bite injuries can be emotionally traumatic while also causing pain and disfigurement. Injuries could require emergency room care as well as ongoing medical treatment and often times, plastic surgery. Scars and emotional trauma are frequently experienced by dog bite victims, and in the worst scenarios, victims, especially children, can be fatally wounded. Children are often bitten by dogs after unknowingly provoking them. In most cases, the dog owner's homeowner's insurance handles personal injury claims. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite, please contact the San Diego personal injury Law Office of Robert Wallenstein at 619-685-5388.
California Slip/Trip & Falls
Most private homeowners and businesses in California carry insurance to compensate for the injuries that someone may suffer while on their property. This would include slip, trip and fall type cases that are generally known as "premises liability" cases. The owner, possessor and/or manager of a residence, place of business or other real property has the duty to exercise reasonable care for the protection of those individuals who come upon the premises. This would include members of the public or any other person who enters the place of business or other property. In such cases, the owner, possessor, or manager of the premises must inspect the property to discover and correct any dangerous conditions or warn of the dangers upon the premises.
