Personal Injury Lawyer Bakersfield
KGET Channel 17 news
We were contacted by Bakersfield television
station KGET Channel17 news for our response to their 2010 round up of personal injury accidents in the Bakersfield area, specifically pedestrian cases.
Bakersfield is the picture of beauty and serenity. Located along historic Interstate 5, Bakersfield is home to a wealth of exciting activities like horse shows, drag racing, and various festivals to suit every taste, hobby and interest. But if you live in this serene community, we don’t need to tell you of its many splendors.
Like all cities, Bakersfield has its share of personal injury accidents, and at the Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP, we work with Bakersfield residents every day in winning recoveries for all types of personal injuries.
Our firm has recovered more than $100 million for our personal injury clients, and that number continues to grow by the day. Here are some of our other areas of expertise:
Bakersfield Auto Accident Lawyers
Bakersfield is no stranger to serious auto accidents. In 2009 alone, the city saw a total of 40 fatal accidents, which is almost 1 per week! Some of this is likely due to the fact that Bakersfield sees so many travelers. People cruising along the i-5 from Southern to Northern California (or vice versa) commonly pass through Bakersfield, and on top of that, the town has nearly a million residents of its own. As you can imagine, the streets see a lot of congestion.
Bakersfield Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Bakersfield certainly sees its share of motorcycle accidents. In fact, Kern County is home to a wide variety of motorcycle clubs and enthusiasts, and sadly, motorcycle collisions are frequently the subject of local news headlines. If you live in the Bakersfield area, it’s important to follow all motorcycle laws, which include wearing a helmet, and if you do find yourself the victim of an accident, visit a doctor immediately – even if you think everything is okay.
Bakersfield Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Bicycling is one of the healthiest ways to travel, not only for your waistline, but also for the planet. And Bike Bakersfield has been successful in encouraging thousands of local citizens to trade their daily automobile commutes for leisurely bike rides. But you have to watch out for motorists, because you can’t count on all of them to be on the lookout. If you have been in a bicycle accident involving a motorist, it’s important to make a full report.
Bakersfield Dog Bite Lawyers
Dog bite cases are epidemic in America, with thousands of injuries and dozens of deaths reported each year. In California, dog owners are legally liable for their pets’ aggression, and if you have been bitten by a dog in Bakersfield, see a doctor right away. Even if you think the injuries are minor, you don’t know what types of bacteria or pathogens may be present.
How Do I File a Case?
First, visit a doctor. Medical professionals can provide crucial perspective about the nature and depth of your injuries. If you have any evidence available, such as medical information or a police report, gather the necessary documents for your attorneys. Take photographs of all injuries or damages, and talk to any eyewitnesses about their willingness to provide testimony. Then call the Bakersfield personal injury lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen. If you’re unable to see a doctor, or if you have no documentation or eyewitnesses, you should still get in touch with a qualified legal team right away.
