Comprehensive Monterey Personal Injury Law Practice

In more than 20 years of helping accident victims in Monterey Bay, we’ve dealt with a wide range of injuries and accidents. Don’t hesitate to contact us for help after any injury, including in the following types of accidents, among others.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

We represent victims of all forms of motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents. If you were hit by a drunk driver or a driver without insurance, injured in a hit and run, or involved in a crash with an Uber or Lyft driver, you can benefit from the expertise at the Allen Law Firm. We have successfully resolved numerous auto accident cases involving many different types of crashes and a range of injury severity, including catastrophic injury and wrongful death.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Property owners have a duty to provide a safe premises free of hazards for the safety of their customers, guests and others lawfully on the property. Premises liability accidents can be difficult to prove against property owners who argue they didn’t have time to recognize and remedy the danger or allege the slip and fall victim wasn’t watching where they were going. These accidents cause injuries ranging from the painful and embarrassing to the catastrophic and fatal. Our firm knows the law in California and what it takes to hold property owners liable for their negligent maintenance of the premises.

Dog Bites

Dog bites cause painful, serious injuries, including physical and psychological injuries that can last a lifetime. We hold dog owners strictly liable for injuries caused by their animals in accordance with California law. Many, if not most, dog bite injuries occur to people familiar with the animal. If you or your child were injured by a dog belonging to a friend, neighbor or family member, let us talk to you about how we can secure compensation for your harm without damaging your relationship with the dog’s owner.

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Nursing homes exist for the sole purpose of providing residential care for the elderly and disabled. Nursing home residents are among the most vulnerable of people who rely on their custodians to see they are adequately cared for. Unfortunately, understaffing, high turnover, lack of training and supervision, and other factors lead to residents being physically and psychologically harmed by neglect, and in some cases intentional abuse. We want the communities of Monterey Bay where we live and work to be safe for all residents, including those living in nursing homes who are counting on those facilities for proper medical care, adequate nutrition, appropriate hygiene, and the best quality of life they can provide.

Defective Products

Even with laws, regulations and consumer protection agencies in place, many manufacturers still produce products as cheaply as they can without regard for consumer safety. Unfortunately, as consumers we have no way of knowing we are purchasing or using an unsafe product. Because of this, manufacturers must be held strictly liable for any injuries that result when they release unsafe products into the marketplace and onto store shelves. We hold manufacturers, distributors and retailers liable for the serious injuries that result when their design defects, manufacturing defects and marketing defects make their products unreasonably dangerous.

Catastrophic Injury & Wrongful Death

Many times our firm has been called upon with the sobering responsibility to represent individuals who have suffered the most serious and catastrophic injuries or to help family members who lost a loved one in a fatal accident caused by the negligence of another. We understand the lifetime of additional medical costs and daily challenges one faces when living with a brain or spinal injury, loss of limb, severe burn or other serious injury. We work to make sure you have the resources you need to get the best care and the best quality of life your injury allows.
