At Venardi Zurada, one of our primary commitments is to Oakland. One of our partners has served in the Coast Guard and worked on an oil rig. We celebrate Oakland’s industrial maritime heritage, and we proudly defend the interests of its workers in various disputes regarding:

- Seaman injuries (Jones Act)
- Maritime accidents (seaworthiness)

The waterways of California and the expanse of the Pacific draw many non-professional sailors as well. Negligence, inexperience and poor maintenance of craft can lead to tragic accidents:
Breach of Confidence
The people you trust are in a position to hurt you the most. These situations are often nuanced, both ethically and legally:
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injury
- Foster home abuse
- General neglect and abuse
- Nursing home abuse
Cyclists and Pedestrians
Riding a bicycle or taking a walk should never be a risk to life and limb. These are basic activities, and negligent drivers should pay the price when they injure vulnerable people. Do not let anyone convince you an accident was your fault before legal analysis — in many cases the motorist has the responsibility to share the road.
The law could give you a recourse to recover damages from powerful, multinational companies for the losses their dangerous and toxic products have caused you. The attorneys of Venardi Zurada are not afraid to go up against anyone who has wronged our clients.
