Our Practice Areas

Car Accidents

Driving is a seriously dangerous task with its many distractions, and factors that can cause devastating accidents, especially in the Sacramento area. Our specialty is defending clients who have been involved in auto accidents.

Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents are common among metro areas due to the size and operations of 18-wheelers. As such, collisions with these giants often cause more serious and severe injuries, property damage, and even death. Often times, the drivers of 18-wheelers go hours on end without sleep, resulting in catastrophic events. If you’ve been in an accident involving a commercial truck, contact our law firm immediately.

Bike Accidents

Almost half of nationwide bicycle deaths happen in California alone. It is estimated that more than 500,000 emergency room visits were due to bicycle related injuries, which has resulted in billions of dollars in lifetime medical costs. The professionals at Eric Ratinoff work diligently to ensure you receive proper & fair compensation for your injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists often bear an unfair burden of having to protect themselves from other vehicles. By law, motorcyclists have rights, and have an equal share of Sacramento roads. However, all too often, they are involved in serious accidents that leave the victims severely injured. Our attorneys fight for the rights of motorcycle drivers in northern California.

Boating Accidents

Most people do not realize how quickly an injury can occur from a boat due to negligence. Leisure activities like boating, jet skiing, and other water sports can be highly dangerous if proper safety measures are not taken. We provide effective representation for boating accident cases in Sacramento, and northern California.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional or hospital fails to provide proper medical care due to negligence. These types of injury cases cover a wide range of specific malpractice, and can include:

  • Anesthesia Errors

    Anesthesiologists are trained to properly administer medication for operations. If negligent, injuries can be life threatening, causing extensive complications. Errors can be caused by carelessness, misuse, or irresponsible administration of anesthesia, and physicians can therefore be held liable. If you believe this to explain your case, seek a knowledgeable lawyer like Eric Ratinoff out of Sacramento. We represent clients nationwide.

  • Birth Injuries

    Birth injuries sometimes occur, and can often be associated with preventable mistakes. These types of medical malpractices can been emotionally & financially draining for the parents of a newborn. Birth cases can be complex and demanding, which is why we provide diligent research & determine the best way to properly fight for these types of cases against doctors & medical staff responsible.

  • Medication Errors

    There are numerous scenarios associated with medication errors. It can include wrong dosage administered, illegible/unclear prescriptions, incomplete patient information, and much more. If you believe you are a victim of a medication error, it’s important to seek medical help first, and then contact a proper medical malpractice lawyer.

  • Surgical Errors

    Like medication errors, surgical errors can cause lasting, negative impacts. If you have undergone surgery, and believe to have been a victim of neglect, misdiagnosis, improper use of surgical tools, delayed surgery, or any other case, we would recommend visiting us for an initial consultation to discuss your options.

  • Hospital Infections

  • Cancer Misdiagnosis

Elder Nursing Home Abuse

If you believe that a loved one is the victim of elder abuse or nursing home neglect, it’s important that you seek help & medical aid if needed. Sometimes, it can be difficult to recognize abuse because many elderly patients are unable to communicate due to dementia, confusion, or even fear. Still, a knowledgeable injury lawyer will protect the rights of the elderly and disabled.

Wrongful Death

The sudden and senseless death of a loved one impacts a family in countless ways. All states, including California, provide legal remedies for wrongful death cases. While they cannot possibly replace a loved one, they do help to alleviate some of the losses that stem from an unexpected death. Eric Ratinoff offers expert legal counsel, and also compassion, for families who have had to deal with the loss of a family member.

Extensive injuries can alter cognitive, physical, and psychological skills, and can bring great emotional and financial stress for families due to the high cost of medical care.

Our Sacramento injury law firm has handled cases against large corporations and insurance companies, and have held them accountable for damages.

Workplace Injuries

Companies often invest in workers compensation insurance to limit their losses in the event of a tragic accident. However, it’s also in the insurance company’s best interest to limit payout for injuries. If you’re dealing with an insurance company refusing proper & fair compensation for your workplace injury, seek legal representation immediately. Eric Ratinoff has extensive experience dealing with insurance companies’ refusal to pay medical expenses, and losses. Call today, you could be entitled to more.

Product Liability

Unsafe products are produced in the United States every day. Manufacturer defects are sometimes missed, and therefore carry the potential of putting the customer in direct danger. This occurs more often than one might think, but there are ways of filing suits against the maker and ultimately holding them responsible for such defects.

Whistleblower Lawsuits

Whistleblower lawsuits refer to those by which an employee, or former employee, of an organization or company exposes unlawful or unethical behavior. Individuals that have evidence, or access to company documents and internal information can use that to expose illegal activities to law enforcement without fear of retaliation. At Eric Ratinoff law firm, we represent whistleblowers in these types of cases, and will work hard to organize & execute proper suits against these types of companies.

Insurance Bad Faith

Have you been wrongfully denied coverage to your claim through your insurance company? This happens all too often, as many insurance companies do not have your best interest at heart. Instead, they work hard to avoid proper payment for medical coverages, or for compensation. If this has happened to you, it’s important to seek representation that will fight against an insurance company, and get you the coverage you deserve.
