Whether you are a driver, passenger, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian, if you are injured in a car accident you may have a personal injury claim. This includes ride-share services such as Uber and Lyft.
Motorcyclists and bikers can be severely injured when they are involved in accidents due to the limited protection a motorcycle offers when riding, making them more susceptible to accidents caused by another’s negligence such as when another driver causes a collision form not paying attention. Smith Trial Group has helped motorcyclists out of our Murrieta office for years and has obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for the motorcycle community.

When a family member or a loved one is killed due to another’s negligence the surviving family members have a wrongful death claim. The decedent’s surviving family members, often a spouse and children, are entitled to financial compensation including the loss of financial support they received from the decedent. Our Murrieta wrongful death lawyers are here to help you or a loved one through the challenging process of seeking justice for a wrongful death case.
Dog owners are responsible for injuries caused by their dogs. When a dog bites an individual, the dog owner is strictly liable—meaning that the injured individual does not even need to prove negligence.

Whether it is a missing railing on stairs, torn carpet, a wet floor or spilled liquid in a grocery store, “slip and fall” cases are a type of case our Murrieta personal injury attorneys handle.
