Dedicated personal injury representation throughout the Central Coast
A serious personal injury can disrupt and even permanently change your life. If you’ve been harmed due to someone’s careless, reckless or deliberately violent actions, you deserve full, fair compensation for your losses. The Grunsky Law Firm assists clients injured in a variety of circumstances:
- Auto accidents — We accept cases of serious injury due to car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. Our clients are motorists, commercial drivers, bikers, cyclists and pedestrians.
- Boating accidents — Located on the Central Coast, our firm represents many victims of negligence on the water.
- Premises liability — This area of the law covers injuries from a slip and fall or trip and fall accident due to a hidden hazard on a particular property, as well as injuries due to dog bites or other animal attacks.
- Medical malpractice — Medical and surgical errors harm thousands of patients every year. Mistakes by healthcare providers are a leading cause of preventable death in the United States.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect — Our attorneys fight for justice for vulnerable seniors who suffer unnecessarily at the hands of negligent or abusive caregivers.
- Products liability — Consumers have a right to expect products they buy to be reasonably safe to use. However, defective products injure and kill thousands of Americans each year.
- Workplace accidents — Although workers’ compensation limits an injured worker’s right to sue in most instances, there are exceptions where a worker can sue an employer or a third party defendant for damages to secure a complete recovery of all losses.
- Wrongful death — Our firm represents grieving families who have lost a loved one due to someone’s negligent act or omission.
We accept personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no attorney fees until we obtain compensation for your injuries through a settlement or court award.
