Oakland Personal Injury Lawyers
Venardi Zurada advocates tenaciously for the interests of those injured in California. Our attorneys hold some of the highest accolades in the profession, and we are proud to be a force for good in Oakland and beyond.
The lawyers you hire would be on your side. The insurance adjusters and legal teams would be on the side of their companies’ bottom lines. Please consider legal advice if you or your loved ones have suffered any of the following types of injuries.
The more expensive the injury, the harder insurance companies tend to fight to diminish claims. Before signing away your future, consider the true cost of the following:
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:
- Tug and barge accidents
- Seaman injuries (Jones Act)
- Maritime accidents (seaworthiness)
- Commercial fishing injuries
- Railroad (FELA)
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.
Property owners in California have a significant legal obligation to maintain the safety of their public spaces. What exactly this entails may vary from one situation to the next, so please seek specific information for:
Non-Car Motor Vehicle Injuries
In general, everyone has a responsibility to operate and maintain vehicles safely, avoiding injury to others. This is especially true on public roadways, sidewalks and on business sites that offer transportation or motorsports entertainment services. Our firm brings claims on behalf of those injured while driving:
Car and Commercial Vehicle Accidents
It is no secret that driving has the potential to be dangerous. We work with our clients to help ensure they do not become another insurance-company statistic. We negotiate and litigate everything from relatively simple car accidents to complex commercial truck crashes involving multiple parties and extreme losses.
Many of our clients contact us on the verge of accepting a disastrous deal from insurance companies. It could benefit you to have a full understanding of your legal position before engaging in negotiations with the shrewd representatives of these powerful companies. Please call 925-937-3900 for a free consultation.
You can be confident in relying on our zealous and effective Oakland injury lawyers:
We have served Northern California for over 35 years.
Our attorneys have been honored with numerous accolades, including SuperLawyers, AV Rating, and Top 100 Trial Attorney Awards.
In our decades of legal service to the community, we have garnered a substantial reputation. We are respected by opposing counsel, feared by insurance companies, and followed by jurors.
We combine Big Firm experience with boutique office attention and care. Several of our attorneys have experience working for the biggest law firms in the country, including the most prominent maritime defense law firm. Our attorneys rely on that big-firm know-how but prefer the personal touch of a smaller firm, allowing us to provide individualized and attentive representation to each of our clients.
We’ve been through it, too. Attorney Mark Venardi had to personally deal with a medical malpractice injury he suffered at a time when he was working a blue-collar job on an offshore oil rig; he knows what it’s like to be a working man dealing with a personal injury. He built his way up to working for the biggest maritime defense firm in the country, before deciding to focus on helping people like himself who were hurt by negligence and mistreatment from others.
We like to fight for the underdog. Attorney Martin Zurada is an immigrant and the son of immigrants who tirelessly worked his way up through education and experience to attain the American dream. Even though he has served in large, high-level litigation law firms, he prefers helping clients directly, fighting against injustices, and securing victories for the little guy who has been wronged.
We win. We have secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. In our combined tenure, we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients across our broad areas of practice.
We care first and foremost about our clients. We dedicate ourselves to serve each and every client personally, and we make ourselves available to our clients around the clock.
There is no cost to you until we win. If we don’t make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. And all initial consultations are free of charge.
Dedicated Areas of Practice
We offer a wide range of litigation services for Oakland personal injury and employment law clients. Specifically, our areas of dedicated practice span the following issues:
Employment Law. California employers must assure proper pay to employees and comply with a variety of rules and regulations to prevent discrimination and unfair treatment of employees. We represent victims of wage and hour violations, employment discrimination, workplace harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and any other form of California workplace mistreatment. If you believe you were treated inappropriately at work, we can help.
Personal Injury. If you’ve been injured due to another’s negligence, you deserve compensation. That’s where we come in. As Oakland personal injury attorneys, we right the wrongs done to our clients. And we do it at our cost during the entire duration of your case. There is never any fee until we win. Give us a call if you have been hurt in a car accident, by a toxic spill or contamination, as a result of medical malpractice, due to abuse or neglect, in a maritime accident, by a vicious animal attack, or any other incident caused by someone else’s negligence.
