Areas of Practice

Experienced advocacy for a full range of injury claims

We represent clients throughout the Bay Area in personal injury cases arising from:
  • Slip and fall accidents — We are one of the top slip and fall injury firms in the Bay Area. As a skilled negotiator, Mr. Staskus can settle most claims for the maximum possible damages, but he never hesitates to argue your case in court when that is your best chance for a full recovery.
  • Auto accidents — Congestion, speed, and winding roads make California one of the most dangerous states to drive in. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, we draw on years of experience dealing with the state’s insurers, which we use to your advantage when negotiating a personal injury or wrongful death claim. We handle claims that involve injuries sustained while a passenger in Uber or Lyft, as well as accidents caused by poor visibility, texting while driving, and drunk drivers.
  • Pedestrian accidents — Our firm represents pedestrians injured by cars or premises defects such as a cracked sidewalk.
  • Wrongful death — We provide compassionate, respectful wrongful death representation to recover damages for families who’ve lost a loved one to someone’s negligence or misconduct.
We are known in the Bay Area for being aggressive advocates for the people we represent. We will stop at nothing until we have reached the best results we can in your case.
