Practice Areas

The California accident attorneys at Cunningham Law Group, A.P.C. have experience with a wide range of personal injury accidents including:

Auto Accidents—Many car accidents are caused by other drivers’ errors such as speeding, following too closely and failing to yield the right of way. Some crashes are cause by drivers’ reckless disregard for safety such as driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs. California allows two years from the date of an accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. The sooner that you have a knowledgeable car accident attorney gathering evidence and advocating on your behalf, the better your chances of receiving just compensation for your injuries. Our experience handling car accidents allows us to negotiate settlements of many injury claims without having to file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death—If you have lost a loved one in California and you believe someone else’s negligence or misconduct caused their death, you may have a legal right to hold the wrongdoer accountable. A wrongful death lawsuit can focus attention on a problem and prevent other families from suffering similar losses. California allows two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit after a person’s death so it is important to speak with an attorney right away to discuss the specific facts of your situation. Talk with a California accident attorney at Cunningham Law Group, A.P.C. about your legal options.

Motorcycle Accidents—Many motorcycle accidents are caused by the failure of other motorists’ to see motorcycles. Drivers commonly make left turns at intersections in front of oncoming motorcycles because they misjudge their speed or fail to see them. Other motorcycle accidents are caused by potholes, uneven surfaces and standing water caused by poor drainage. If another party caused you or your loved one to sustain serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the at-fault party.

Bicycle Accidents—A collision with a car, truck or other motor vehicle can cause serious injuries to a bicyclist. Many collisions are caused by motor vehicle drivers who are not paying attention for bicyclists. Cyclists are at higher risk of serious injuries including fractures, head injuries, facial injuries and traumatic brain injuries because bicycles provide little protection.

Pedestrian AccidentsDriver inattention and errors lead to many collisions involving pedestrians and vehicles. When struck by a vehicle, pedestrians often sustain serious injuries including head injuries, fractures and traumatic brain injuries.

Boating Accidents— Boating accidents caused by intoxicated boaters and boaters who lack adequate training to operate a boat safely are a serious problem. When a boat operator’s negligence causes injuries to other boaters, the at-fault boat operator can be held responsible for the harm caused.

Slip and Fall AccidentsIf you slipped and fell on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. Property owners and business owners have an obligation to use reasonable care in the maintenance and management of their premises to prevent exposing people to harm.

Burn Accidents— People may suffer severe and disfiguring burns from scalding liquids, direct contact with flames, x-ray machines, electricity or chemical exposure. Burn injuries are costly to treat and may require skin grafts, multiple surgeries and months off work. Many severe burns occur because of someone else’s negligence or disregard for safety.

Dog Bite Accidents— California’s dog bite law states that the owner of a dog is responsible for injuries caused by a dog attack if it occurred in a public place or while a person was lawfully visiting a private property. Some dog bite victims require reconstructive surgery or plastic surgery as a result of a dog attack. The owner is responsible for harm caused by their animal even if the dog has never bitten anyone previously.

Aircraft AccidentsAviation accidents may be caused by a pilot failing to follow proper flight protocols or by mechanical failures. An airplane manufacturer may be held liable for design errors that cause an airplane crash. Attorney Jim Cunningham is a 3,000-hour commercial, multi-engine and instrument rated pilot who brings his knowledge of flying to each aircraft accident case he handles.

Truck Accidents—Accidents involving large trucks often cause more severe injuries due to the size and weight of tractor trailers and other large trucks. Typically, the occupants of other vehicles sustain the more severe injuries. Many truck accidents are caused by truck drivers who are driving too fast or who tried to change lanes and struck a vehicle in the adjacent lane. Truck drivers and trucking companies should be held responsible when their negligence causes harm to others.
