Visalia Personal Injury Attorney

Accidents can occur almost anywhere at any time, while shopping, walking on a sidewalk or simply driving to work. Depending on the severity of the accident, injuries can be serious enough to warrant a doctor visit, hospital stay or lengthy physical therapy. It is the goal of your attorney to examine your situation and advise you on your best course of action.

At the Law Offices of Derek P. Wisehart, our Visalia personal injury lawyer has more than 15 years of legal experience both as a deputy district attorney and in private practice. Clients appreciate our detailed knowledge of the law and the thoroughness with which we approach each case. After carefully examining all factors of your accident, we will prepare an effective and efficient case strategy that we will use to negotiate with the liable party's insurance carrier. If a beneficial settlement cannot be reached following these negotiations, we are fully prepared to represent you in court.

Get the Compensation You Deserve for Your Injuries

At our law firm, we provide legal advice and representation for residents of California's Central Valley injured by the carelessness or wrongdoing of others. This includes:

  • Car and truck accidents — Negligence is rampant on the road. Drunk drivers, texting drivers and fatigued drivers all take their terrible toll. We can help you pursue your car crash injury claim to hold those who hurt you accountable. We also handle truck accidents.
  • Animal bites — Pet owners usually are quick to say their animal wouldn't hurt anyone. When it happens, we can help you pursue proper compensation for injuries caused by dogs, cats or other animals.
  • Civil rights violations — If police commit brutality, a wrongful shooting or other civil rights violations, you have a right to pursue recovery for your damages.
  • Premises liability — If a landowner failed to maintain property safely, it could cause slip-and-fall accidents or lead to an attack caused by negligent security.

Depending on the severity of an accident, the injuries might ultimately prove fatal. If you have lost a loved one following an accident caused by the negligence or inattentiveness of another person, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation through a wrongful death case.
