A bodily injury case was not on my bucket list, but Michael Waks was. He met with me immediately and explained in detail how we would proceed. He kept me up to date on the progression of the case. ...He took care of everything and had to deal with the bureaucracy of Medicare. He did not accept what the insurance company offered and got me a very fair settlement. Michael Waks is hard working, reliable and honest. See More

His intellect, tenacity and humor are what makes him an excellent personal injury attorney. See More

We are in uncharted waters with these autonomous and “driverless cars”. Significant testing and regulations must be in place before these vehicles should be permitted to be on the public roads.…/uber-robo-car-fatality-illustra…/

On March 18, 2018, in Tempe Arizona, a woman pushing her bike across the road at the intersection of Mill Avenue and Curry Road was struck and killed by an Uber self-driving vehicle in autonomous mode, marking a milestone in the Autonomous Vehicle revolution: the first human killed by a robo-car.

They also include accidents where a vehicle hits a pedestrian or bike. Under California law, the person who ca...

The 2017 pedestrian accident death rate maintained the 25-year-high of nearly 6,000 fatalities in a year. Researchers, law enforcement, and pedestrian accident attorneys are analyzing data to determine why walking has become so deadly.

This case represents an egregious case of medical malpractice. This surgeon should have his license taken away after leaving his patient on the operating room table and requiring his girlfriend/physicians assistant to close him up. Fantastic lawyering by the team of Plaintiff Lawyers.

Fresno, CA heart surgeon ordered by jury to pay $56.5 million to family of a man who went into a coma following heart surgery. Operation ended badly with the man bleeding profusely before it could be stopped.
Dealing with insurance companies can be a hassle. Moving through a formal insurance claims process can take a lot of time. And time is one thing that is in short supply for most of us. If damage from a car accident appears minor and no one is hurt, it can be tempting to bypass the […]

Jaywalking is a violation of California Crosswalk Laws, but you won’t find a statute prohibiting it. Instead, you will find rules about where to cross a street. While “jaywalking” is not used in the California Vehicle Code statutes, it is found deep in Appendix B. This appendix contains a list...
