California Personal Injury
If you have suffered a personal injury because of the negligent or intentional misconduct of another, it is only fair that you be compensated by the responsible party for your hospital bills and medical expenses, lost wages if you had to miss work, pain and suffering, and other legal damages. Unfortunately, the law places the burden on you, the injured victim, to pursue and prove every element of your claim, such as the nature and extent of your injuries, the other party’s fault in causing your injuries, and a justification of the amount of money you are seeking. At the same time you are working to prove all of these facts, the other party’s insurance company is claiming that you were not really hurt as bad as you say you were, or that the accident was really your fault. These challenges can greatly reduce the amount of compensation you are able to receive, or even keep you from recovering any compensation at all.
With an experienced civil trial lawyer on your side, you will have the best chance of proving your case while ensuring that you are not unfairly saddled with any of the blame for the accident which does not belong to you. At Kaupp & Feinberg, we have years of experience getting results for clients injured by the negligence or misconduct of others, including successful trial victories and out-of-court settlements. Our personal injury practice encompasses all of the following areas and more:
- Fire injuries and losses, including smoke inhalation and burns

With a lengthy background in civil rights and immigration litigation against the government, our lawyers have amassed considerable trial skills and experience.

When our constitutional rights are violated by the police or other government actors – the very people we put our trust in to protect us – it can be difficult to know where to turn for help. Our attorneys can guide you through this frightening experience and help you stand up to police, prosecutors, prison guards or others who neglect or abuse your civil rights. Often times, speaking up and taking a stand is the only way to hold government actors accountable for their actions. Civil rights litigation can not only vindicate your rights and compensate you for your damages; it can also force change in prisons, police departments and other institutions to ensure a fairer and more just society for everyone.
Our broad civil rights practice has helped everyone from university and street protestors to undocumented immigrants and convicted felons in prison. If you believe your rights were violated, contact our office. We help individuals and employees across a broad range of civil rights matters, including:
