Helping You Get Answers And Find Solutions
Trial attorney Scott Sumner has advocated for injury victims for 25 years. He has recovered multimillion-dollar settlements and judgments for those who have suffered:
Dangerous Or Defective Product Injuries
This is an area of law known as product liability. Scott has helped individuals recover compensation for injuries due to hazardous tools, appliances, toys, medical devices, prescription drugs and more. He has taken on large corporations and insurance companies – and won.
Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
If you or a family member is hurt in a car, truck, SUV or motorcycle crash, you have the right to recover compensation under the law. It is unwise to negotiate with an insurance company on your own. Let us protect your interests and fight to get you maximum compensation. We also help families recover from the wrongful death of a loved one.
Bicycle And Pedestrian Accident Injuries
When a bicycle is struck by a car, the rider is likely to suffer traumatic brain, spinal cord or other serious injuries. Attorney Scott Sumner is a lifelong cyclist and has personally experienced severe bicycle injuries. He knows what it takes to recover and get back on your feet after a bicycle or pedestrian accident.
Injuries From Unsafe Property
Patrons entering a hotel, restaurant, retail outlet or grocery store have the right to be free from hazardous conditions. If individuals get injured on a poorly maintained property, they can pursue a premises liability claim. Let us fight to recover full compensation for you.
A dog attack can cause devastating and even fatal injuries, especially when small children are involved. Under California law, a dog owner is automatically responsible if their dog bites a person. We can use our experience to help you or your loved one recover for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
Injuries On Government Property
Individuals injured on government-owned property or by the negligence of a government employee have the right to recover compensation. However, the rules are complex and you must file a notice of claim within six months of the accident. Let us use our experience and knowledge to fight for your right to justice and compensation.
Injuries Enabled By Negligent Liquor Establishments
If a drunk driver injured you, you may have a cause for action under the theory of dram shop liability against the restaurant, bar, or establishment or bartender who overserved that individual. A lawyer from Sumner Law has experience holding these negligent parties responsible.
