Oakland Auto Accident Personal Injury Attorney






Oakland is the county seat of Alameda County, California. The Port of Oakland is the busiest port in the San Francisco Bay Area, in Northern California and the fifth busiest port  in the United States. After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, a lot of people left San Francisco, and moved to Oakland. Oakland has continued growing, based in part on its busy port and shipyards.

Were you in an Oakland accident on 42nd Street and Telegraph Avenue or 22nd Avenue and Foothill Boulevard? If so, you're not alone. They're some of the top most dangerous intersections for traffic accidents in Oakland, California.

If you got hurt in Oakland, keep in mind that it's important to hire a good attorney from the start. The insurance adjuster is not your friend - even your own insurance company will look for the cheapest way to get rid of your claim. After you get injured, it's important to seek medical care right away. Some injuries can only be found by a doctor. Other injuries get worse if they don't get treated on time.

Do Most Oakland Auto Accident Cases Go To Court?

Many Oakland auto accident and personal injury accident cases get resolved without going to court. Other cases have to be fought through the court. In Oakland, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the Alameda County Courts. In 1998, all Alameda County Trial Courts were unified to form the Alameda County Superior Court. This happened because the voters approved a constitutional amendment letting Alameda County judges merge their superior and municipal courts. Before then, superior court and municipal court were separate.

Currently, Oakland auto accident and injury cases are heard in courts located in Oakland. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation. If you got hurt in Oakland, I can help. Here are some of the Oakland crash types that I can handle:
