Personal Injury Representation For Plaintiffs And Defendants

The world is a dynamic and dangerous place, and injuries inevitably occur. If you've been injured due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. If, on the other hand, you are an individual or business being accused of negligence, you have a right to defend yourself.

At Winship & Friedrichs, APC, we are committed to identifying the party responsible for an injury and ensuring that justice is served. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants, so we have a thorough understanding of personal injury law from both sides of the courtroom.

Our clients include both individuals and businesses, since occasional personal injury claims are part and parcel of running a store, restaurant, bar and many other businesses.

Experienced Representation For A Wide Range Of Injuries

Our personal injury lawyers have served both plaintiffs and defendants in cases stemming from a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Car accidents: Traffic accidents are an unfortunately common source of personal injuries, from the minor to the life-changing. The full extent of an injury may not be obvious immediately, so it's important to seek legal representation after an accident in order to protect your legal interests.
  • Dog bites: Unlike some states, California imposes "strict liability" on animal owners in dog bite cases. That means that the owner is liable even when the animal has no prior history of bites or attacks. Claiming that the owner was not aware that their dog or other animal could behave violently is not an effective defense in California.
  • Slip-and-fall cases: Premises liability is an issue frequently faced by liquor businesses such as retailers and restaurants, as well as other businesses.
  • Wrongful death: If you have lost a loved one due to negligence, we will help you seek suggestions. If you are accused of negligence that led to a wrongful death, we can stand up for your interests and tell your side of the story.
