Product Liability

It is an unfortunate fact that hazardous or inadequately labeled products can be found almost everywhere – in our offices, in our homes, in our cars. People who are injured because of a defective or unreasonably dangerous product deserve to be compensated for their injuries.

At Nokes & Nokes we represent people who have been injured due to defective product design, defective manufacturing, inadequate labeling and product warnings, misuse by a third party, recalls and other factors that were foreseeable. We have the knowledge and experience to fully investigate these often complex cases in order to obtain maximum results for our clients.

Nokes & Nokes takes product liability cases on a contingent fee basis, so clients do not pay any attorney fees until we recover damages. Call for a free initial consultation.

Automobile Accidents

Every year thousands of people are seriously injured or killed in automobile accidents in California, and recent government and insurance industry offensives against automobile insurance fraud often leave legitimate claimants out in the cold.

More than ever, victims of automobile accidents need legal representation in order to protect their rights and obtain just compensation.

Nokes & Nokes has years of experience representing automobile accident victims and their families, including negotiating with insurance companies and the at-fault driver, challenging insurance company attempts to downplay the extent or cause of injuries, accident reconstruction so juries can understand what really happened, dealing with insurance adjustors and investigators, making sure all relevant deadlines are met, determining the full extent of damages and ensuring that the injured person is fully compensated.

It is a property owner’s responsibility to take reasonable care to make sure people don’t get hurt, but many property owners do not live up to that responsibility.

At Nokes & Nokes, we represent clients in cases involving slip- or trip-and-fall injuries, dog bites, negligent security, exposure to toxic or other hazardous materials, failure to warn of a dangerous situation, structural defects, and other dangerous conditions.

Wrongful Death

If someone is killed as a result of the negligence of another person, family members need experienced counsel to minimize the financial trauma the death can cause and to make sure the person or entity responsible is held accountable for the loss.

The top causes of accidental death in the United States are motor vehicle crashes, poisoning, drowning, fires and burns, suffocation, firearms, carbon monoxide poisoning, medical and surgical complications and machinery accidents.

At Nokes & Nokes, we have the knowledge and experience to represent survivors of victims killed by the wrongful acts of others. Not only is it important to determine whether the death was the result of negligence on the part of a third party, but it is equally important to address the full extent of the loss, both financial and emotional, brought on by the wrongful death of a family member.

Pharmaceutical Liability

Every day, people in the United States are hospitalized or killed because of adverse reactions to prescription drugs. Even pharmaceuticals that have been approved by the FDA can have side effects that were not detected in pre-approval clinical trials. And when drugs are prescribed for an off-label use, sometimes with the implicit or explicit encouragement of drug company sales representatives, the results can be tragic.
