Monterey County, CA Attorneys
Monterey County is a beautiful place in which to live and work. It’s located on the Pacific Coast, between Santa Cruz and San Luis Obispo Counties. The county seat is Salinas, and the population is over 400,000. Most of the economy is based on tourism or agriculture. Monterey County is large, consisting of almost 4,000 square miles.
With over 4,000 square miles in area, there are thousands of miles of roads and numerous automobile accidents each year in Monterey County. In 2011, Monterey County had 1,373 individuals injured in automobile accidents, and 46 were killed. Most of those accidents occurred in the unincorporated areas of Monterey County rather than in the cities. In addition, there were motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists injured and killed as well.
Liberty Law is dedicated to helping victims of automobile accidents put their lives back together again. Those who are injured or killed in accidents due to another driver’s negligence are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, property damage, time off from work, pain and suffering, and more. The money can come from the other driver’s automobile insurance, his or her personal assets, his or her employer, your insurance, or other sources.
In some cases, accident victims will choose to work directly with the insurance company rather than through an attorney. However, studies have shown that those accident victims who have a dedicated accident attorney working on their behalf typically receive larger settlements than those who go it alone, even after the attorney’s fees are paid.
Liberty Law helps not only victims of automobile accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, and motorcycle accidents, but also those who have been injured in other types of tragic accidents, including swimming pool accidents, dog bites, and slip and falls. Micha Star Liberty is also dedicated to helping those who have purposely been injured, such as victims of police misconduct, elder abuse, or sexual abuse.
In addition to being an advocate for those injured in personal injury incidents, Liberty Law also helps with employment law issues for both employers and employees. Some of the most common legal issues for employees are discrimination and harassment, which are illegal if they are based on an illegal purpose like sex, disability, age, race, religion, and more. Other employees are facing workplace retaliation, wrongful termination, workplace bullies, and not being paid for all hours worked.
Micha Star Liberty also works with employers to help them with their legal issues. She drafts employment agreements, helps develop employee handbooks, gives guidance to employment-related legal questions, and performs workplace investigations. If employers fail to correctly follow all the laws concerning their employees, steep penalties can result. For those who have legal questions about how to handle a certain employment situation, it’s advisable to consult with an attorney who specializes in employment law.
