Our attorneys understand the statutes and legal rights of the victim. California is one of the few states that has a dog bite statute.

The statute is designed to prevent dogs from being a hazard in the community. Therefore, liability is automatic.

Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance Bad Faith
Insurance companies are expected to do the right thing. In cases when they do not, their insured customers are permitted to sue on basis of a tort claim and a standard breach-of-contract claim. While a breach-of-contract claim does not allow punitive or exemplary damages, a tort claim does. In many instances, damages in excess of what the policy would have otherwise covered may be awarded especially if the insurance company’s conduct was erroneous or an example of bad faith.
Examples of insurance bad faith include:

Medical and hospital malpractice is one of the leading bases for negligence claims against healthcare providers every year. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), as well as the California Medical Board, receives a tremendous volume of complaints each day. An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that approximately 12,000 deaths occur each year due to unnecessary surgery alone.

If you, as a pedestrian, have been injured in an accident, our lawyers are prepared to give you the best representation possible for your case. We have decades of experience representing pedestrians who have suffered personal injuries or wrongful death.
Immediate investigation and preservation of evidence is often a critical element in proving personal injury/wrongful death cases involving pedestrians. Investigation may involve examination of the scene of the accident and the gathering of witness statements. After a pedestrian accident, it is also critical for your lawyer to establish contact with the investigating authorities, such as the local and state police. If you or a family member has been injured, you should not give statements to insurance investigators before you are represented by an attorney who will protect your rights.

Sexual harassment is one of the most common labor violations in the office. While sexual harassment is often misinterpreted strictly as offensive sexual behavior directed towards another person, it can also be any verbal or physical conduct that is sexually hostile.
According to the U.S. Supreme Court, there are two kinds of sexual harassment in the workplace: Trading sexual favors for employment and benefits (this-for-that) and/or a hostile work environment. In the former, this can be committed by a superior if the employee is subjected to unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors in exchange for benefits at work or continued security. The latter, which is a sexually hostile work environment, is any severe and pervasive behavior/conduct that is sexually offensive (i.e., leaving inappropriate literature in common areas, use of explicit and sexually graphic pictures or words). The employee MUST know that he or she does not have to put up with this conduct and that legal remedies may be available.
If you have been subjected to sexual harassment in your place of work, Blythe Walker & associates can help. Contact us to learn more.
