At Chakmakis Law, we are selective about the cases we take, which allows us to concentrate on representing clients who have been seriously injured or killed in California car accidents.
When a death occurs, the resulting lawsuit is deemed a “wrongful death” lawsuit. Taking action against the negligent party cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help begin the healing process and may get you the compensation that you deserve for your loss.
Chakmakis Law has obtained million dollar recoveries for our clients. We are highly experienced and aggressivly pursue maximum compensation for these expenses, maximum compensation of your loved ones lost wages, and most importantly compensation for the loss of your loved one’s companionship.
California Motorcycle Accidents are most often caused by negligent and inattentive drivers on the road. Product defects and negligent driving can cause spinouts or rear end collisions, or can force a motorcyclist off the road. We meticulously investigate your claim, discover various forms of negligence, and build your case up to get you maximum compensation. Motorcycle accidents often happen because:
• A driver cuts off a motorcycle when changing lanes Calif. Vehicle Code 21658
• A driver follows the motorcycle too closely
• A driver fails to observe proper lane distance CA DMV Motorcycle Tips
• Defective tires cause a tire blowout
• A driver runs a red light or stop sign See California DMV for Vehicle Codes
• Unsafe and improperly maintained roads
At Chakmakis Law, we are skilled at helping motorcycle accident victims’ physical injuries and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Our motorcycle accident attorneys also guide families through wrongful death claims following fatal motorcycle accidents.
Pedestrian accidents often involve serious injuries, and costs associated with these injuries can be significant. Most insurers are eager to settle a case as soon as possible after a pedestrian accident – before the full scope of an injury is clear. Since it can take months for the full impact of a head, neck, or back injury to be made known, claims adjusters may try and convince you to accept a settlement. At Chakmakis Law we consult medical experts to determine the full extent and nature of your injuries, and make sure you are able to get the treatment and compensation that you need.
The attorneys at Chakmakis Law will investigate and obtain maximum compensation for you. Construction site injuries are often caused by third party sub-contractors working at the job site or the property owner/general contractor, rather than your direct employer.
You are not limited to a worker’s compensation claim if your injuries were caused by another subcontractor or the property owner/general contractor. You are entitled to reimbursement for pain and suffering and other significant damages if Chakmakis Law proves someone other than your employer caused your injuries.
Injuries suffered on another’s property – whether it is a home, store, shop, office, sidewalk, or commercial building – are often the result of negligent maintenance, design, or even complete disregard for the safety of others.
