It’s important that if you are injured in an accident, you seek the services of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. An attorney can help you investigate the accident to determine which party should be held responsible. There may be other parties to make a claim against besides the party who was driving the vehicle. Unfortunately, there are numerous accidents in Santa Clara County every year – in 2011 alone, almost 100 people were killed in automobile accidents in Santa Clara. That doesn’t include motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists who were also killed. Many more people were injured, some of those catastrophically. Some of these people (or their families) may choose not to file a claim, or may choose to negotiate with the insurance company involved directly. Although this may be fine in some cases, it’s often a bad idea. Insurance companies’ goals are to pay out as little as possible for claims, and victims often aren’t aware of all of the compensation to which they are entitled.
In addition to helping accident victims obtain compensation for their injuries, Liberty Law also assists employees as well as employers with any questions or issues they have surrounding the employment. From an employer’s perspective, Micha Star Liberty can help with developing employment handbooks, employment contracts, investigating harassment or other types of employment issues. Employees may need help with discrimination or harassment complaints, including those based on age, sex, religion, disability, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Employers frequently mistreat employees, by refusing to pay vacation pay or sick time, treating employees poorly, wrongfully terminating an employee, retaliating against an employee, creating a hostile work environment, or other violations.
