A serious personal injury can permanently alter a person's life. If that injury was caused by the fault, wrongdoing, or negligence of another person, the victim can choose to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible person or party. Personal injury lawsuits cover a broad category of injury case types, including slips and falls on a dangerous property, road defects that cause car accidents, vicious animal attacks, and product liability. Victims of personal injury often have to cope with serious, debilitating injuries, as well as costly medical expenses, emotional suffering, and possible loss of future work income. Some victims are permanently disabled by their injury and are never able to work again. If you have been the victim of a serious personal injury caused by someone else, we may be able to help. Contact personal injury attorney Gregory Stroup at our Tracy, California, office today for a review of your claim. The Stroup Law Firm also serves the nearby areas of Stockton, Modesto, and Sacramento.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car accidents are the leading cause of death among Americans aged two to 33. This may come as no surprise to daily commuters who must contend with aggressive, distracted drivers on increasingly congested roads. A serious car accident can be devastating for both the victim and his or her family. If the victim survives, he or she may face lifelong disability or disfigurement, extensive medical bills, and the emotional pain of coping with a serious injury. The combined financial, physical, and emotional burden can often be overwhelming. The Stroup Law Firm is committed to helping victims of serious car accidents and their families obtain the financial compensation they need to heal.

Poorly designed or maintained roads and highways have been responsible for many serious and fatal car accidents. Design defects such as unsafe curves and dividers, poorly supported construction, or unclear signage can increase the likelihood of a car accident. Road defects such as large potholes, open manholes, damaged road surfaces, or drainage problems can be equally dangerous. If you or a family member has been injured in a car accident because of a road defect, The Stroup Law Firm may be able to help you hold the municipal government, the road construction company, or other parties accountable.

Animal attacks are the responsibility of their owners. An animal attack, such as a vicious dog attack, can lead to serious or life-threatening injuries, as well as to scarring and disfigurement. Many animal attack victims undergo extensive medical treatment and sometimes reconstructive surgery as a result of their injuries. In California, animal owners are held strictly liable if their animal attacks a person in a public place or while that person is lawfully in a private place. The responsible party's homeowner insurance typically handles these claims. The Stroup Law Firm has a strong record of success representing victims of vicious animal attacks, including a $240,000 result for a three-year-old girl attacked by a neighbor's dog. If you or your child has been the victim of a dog bite or other domestic animal attack in Tracy or around Sacramento, please contact our firm today for a free consultation.

Product safety is vastly important; we all trust that the things we purchase will work as intended. But when something goes wrong, product liability becomes an issue. If a poorly designed automobile tire causes a car accident, a defective toaster starts a house fire, or an improperly labeled toy injures a child, the product's manufacturer may be held legally liable for the injury. Others - including the designer, the distributor, and the retailer - may also be held liable for the safety of the product. If you or someone you love was injured while using a product for its intended purpose, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the manufacturer or other parties. Contact The Stroup Law Firm in Tracy, near Sacramento, today for a free review of your product liability claim.

In a wrongful death case, the tragedy of losing a loved one is compounded by the knowledge that someone was at fault. Wrongful death cases are brought against individuals or parties whose negligent or wrongful action causes another's death. If a manufacturer's automotive defect leads to a car accident death, a patient dies on the operating table due to surgeon error, or a drunk driver kills a loved one, the family of the victim is entitled to sue for wrongful death. In many cases, families may be entitled to restitution for medical and funeral expenses, emotional grief, and loss of the victim's future earning potential. If you have suffered the loss of someone you love due to the negligent or wrongful action of another, an experienced wrongful death attorney can help you hold the responsible party accountable. Contact The Stroup Law Firm today for a review of your case. We are located in Tracy, California, and serve surrounding areas, including Stockton, Modesto, and Sacramento.

In negligent security cases, property owners can be held legally responsible if someone is injured or killed on their property due to inadequate security.

If owners or managers fail to provide proper lighting at night, necessary security personnel for high-risk areas, or adequate locks and security systems, they put innocent people at risk.
