Barry P. Goldberg, A Professional Law Corporation is a personal injury law firm that represents clients who have been injured and lost loved ones in car accidents throughout the San Fernando Valley area. If you need a lawyer who knows the area and who is willing to fight to make sure you win maximum compensation, call us today for a free consultation.

When you are fighting against the insurance companies, the details matter. Where exactly did the accident happen? What are traffic conditions like in the area? Are there adequate traffic signs and signals? Is there a soft shoulder? Are there traffic cameras that might have captured a negligent driver?

Attorney Barry P. Goldberg is a lifelong resident of the San Fernando Valley. He has lived in Van Nuys, Canoga Park, Northridge, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Chatsworth, and Calabasas, and he has represented clients locally for more than 30 years. He has driven thousands of miles on the San Fernando Valley’s streets, boulevards, and freeways. In fact, there is a good chance that he knows exactly where your accident occurred. These are some of examples of auto accident cases:

Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving is a growing problem in the San Fernando Valley and throughout Southern California. Distracted drivers injure and kill innocent victims every day, and they deserve to be held accountable for their poor decisions. If you were injured in an accident caused by a driver who was talking, texting, eating or drinking, taking photos, or using social media behind the wheel, we want to help you win just compensation.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk drivers can face criminal penalties as a result of their mistakes, but these penalties do nothing to compensate their victims in the wake of a traumatic accident. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a drunk driving accident, Mr. Goldberg can help you pursue a civil claim against the drunk driver’s insurance company.

Hit-and-Run Accidents

Mr. Goldberg has extensive experience in cases involving hit-and-run accidents. These cases present many unique issues, and securing just compensation requires the ability to skillfully address these issues in a timely manner. If you need to seek compensation for an accident caused by a hit-and-run driver, Mr. Goldberg is the right choice to handle your case.

Negligent Driving Accidents

Along with distracted and drunk driving, there are countless other forms of driver negligence that can lead to avoidable accidents that cause life-changing injuries. Mr. Goldberg routinely handles car accident cases involving all types of driver negligence, including speeding, running red lights and stop signs, merging errors, tailgating, and other all-too-common mistakes.

Third-Party Negligence Accidents

In addition to negligent drivers, Mr. Goldberg frequently represents clients in cases against third parties whose negligence causes or contributes to their injuries. If a vehicle owner, property owner, employer, business, government entity, or private contractor is wholly or partially to blame for your accident, you can count on Mr. Goldberg to hold them accountable.

Uninsured/Underinsured Driver Accidents

Mr. Goldberg is widely recognized for his significant experience in cases involving uninsured and underinsured motorists. Mr. Goldberg routinely represents clients in uninsured/underinsured claims against their own insurance companies. When necessary, he does not hesitate to take the insurance companies to trial.

Vehicle Defect Accidents

In California, vehicle defect cases are subject to a special law known as “strict liability.” This means that accident victims do not need to prove negligence in order to recover just compensation. However, establishing that a vehicle or car part is defective is not easy – especially when you are going up against a major automobile manufacturer – and you need someone like Mr. Goldberg on your side who can secure a just outcome in your case.

Looking to handle your own accident case?

For smaller cases, you may not need to hire a lawyer. If your damages are $10,000 or less, Small Claims Court is a simple, quick, and cost effective method where you can avoid attorney’s fees.

In Small Claims Court there are No Lawyers, No Rules of Evidence and No Juries. The cost is usually around $75 and your time to prepare and attend your hearing.
