Napa County Attorneys
Napa County is one of the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay area. It is also one of the four North Bay counties. It has one of the smallest populations of the counties in the Bay area, with around 136,000 residents. The county seat is Napa. Napa County is probably best known today for its wine production, with over 400 wineries that grow many different varieties of grapes. Tourism is also a huge industry for the area, with over five million people visiting the county each year.
Over five million visitors, as well as year-round residents, can mean a lot of traffic, particularly at peak seasons. In 2011, there were 642 automobile accidents involving injuries, and there were eight fatalities. Two of the fatal accidents involved alcohol, and 91 of the injury-accidents involved alcohol. There were also injured pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists, as well as one fatal pedestrian accident.
Fortunately, for those involved in automobile accidents in Napa County, help is available. Automobile accident victims may choose to pursue compensation for their injuries. Types of compensation available include compensation for property damage to a vehicle, medical expenses (which can be significant), lost wages, wrongful death, diminished earning capacity, and more. Some accident victims choose to pursue a settlement themselves directly with the other driver’s insurance company. However, this is rarely a good idea – studies have shown that client with attorneys on average end up with more money than those without attorneys, even after the fees are subtracted.
If you have been injured in an accident in Napa County, call at attorney for help. The dedicated professionals at Liberty Law have significant experience in helping accident victims obtain compensation for their accident. In addition to helping automobile accident victims, Liberty Law also works with bicycle accident victims, motorcycle accident victims, SUV rollover accident victims, and truck accident victims. Liberty Law also works with other types of personal injury victims, which can include those who have been injured by medical malpractice, dangerous products, defective medical devices, professional malpractice, or wrongful death.
Liberty Law also works with clients who have employment law issues, whether they are an employee or an employer. The most common employment law issue many employees have is when they face illegal discrimination or harassment in the workplace. Discrimination and harassment are illegal when they are based on an illegal purpose, such as pregnancy, disability, age, gender, ethnicity, national origin, race, sex, or sexual orientation.
Many employees also face other legal issues involving their jobs. Some do not get all the pay to which they are entitled for hours worked. Others are mischaracterized as independent contractors rather than employees. Some employees face a hostile workplace, or are wrongfully terminated. Some employees are also constructively discharged rather than being fired directly.
