Personal Injury

California law recognizes that people who are injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others are entitled to be compensated for the damages caused, and the Law Offices of Baron J. Drexel is committed to helping victims of personal injury in Oakland and the Bay Area find justice and hold those responsible accountable for their behavior.

Firm founder and principal attorney Baron Drexel has been in practice for 25 years and has helped individuals and families recover millions of dollars in compensation for the damages they have incurred. If you have been injured in an accident, you are entitled to be compensated for your present and future medical expenses, present and future lost wages from missed work or diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering and emotional distress, property damage and other damages you have incurred.

Our firm has represented people in every major type of personal injury case, including:

Many of these accidents are capable of causing severe and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), permanent paralysis such as paraplegia or quadriplegia from a spinal cord injury, fractures, internal injuries, and burns. Many of these types of injuries require a long period of recovery and rehabilitation, often with multiple surgeries and ongoing therapy to achieve a maximum recovery. For some types of injuries, the injured person never fully recovers but instead endures a lifetime of continued medical care and limited ability for employment, mobility, self-care, or enjoyment of life.

It is not always an easy matter to add up this lifetime of additional costs, reduce it to a dollar amount, and effectively communicate that fact to a jury. Our firm understands the long-term, devastating impact that different types of injuries can have on an individual. We have the experience it takes to properly evaluate a case and prepare and deliver a case designed to achieve a maximum recovery for the client. Although most cases settle with the insurance company before trial, we are always prepared to take a case all the way to judgment. Our experience has shown that this approach is the key to obtaining the best possible results.

We are available to meet with you at your convenience and can accept your case on a contingency basis, meaning there is no fee unless and until we obtain a recovery for you.
