Oakland Personal Injury Practice at De Castroverde Law
Whether your case is a standard slip-and-fall or a more complex product liability action, the team at De Castroverde Law will provide personalized service and give you and your case the attention it deserves. Common types of personal injury cases include:
Heading out into traffic is inherently dangerous. Vehicle accidents make up one of the largest categories of personal injury cases at De Castroverde law, whether they involve cars, trucks, motorcycles, or bicycles. These can be caused by negligence or simple human error, such as leaving a lane, stopping suddenly, driving too fast for conditions, or the following someone too closely in traffic. The person who hit you may be liable for your injuries and damage to your property.
Slip- or Trip-and-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents may sound trivial, but some produce serious consequences with extended trauma. They might involve negligent conditions, such as hazardous material spills, lack of warning signs, or poor maintenance, such as broken steps or lighting. Whenever someone fails to keep their properties safe for visitors, the situation can result in substantial personal injury damages.
Excessive Force Claims in the Bay Area
Sometimes, emotions can run high when dealing with law enforcement. Interactions that result in serious injuries or emotional trauma can lead to personal injury claims for your injuries or stress involved. Our attorneys can help evaluate your specific situation and make recommendations for seeking damages.
California Wrongful Death Claims
Cases occasionally go beyond the injury stage and result in death. If you have a loved one who died following an accidental or negligent incident, you may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim. These situations do not need to be malicious, intentional acts. Claims can involve cases such as medical malpractice, drunk or distracted driving, or product defects.
In addition to those broad categories, here are some specific types of cases that might fit your circumstances:
- Dangerous drugs.
- Casino injuries.
- Injuries at nightclubs and bars.
- Motorcycle accidents.
- Negligent security.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect.
- Pedestrian injury.
- Premises and products liability.
- Swimming pool accidents.
Even if your case seems to fall outside these areas, we may be able to help. In addition to our personal injury practice, De Castroverde Law maintains a separate practice that focuses on immigration and criminal law. Give us a call today, and we will do what we can to assist.

Outside of law practice, De Castroverde Law Group has a shared firm-wide commitment to making our community a better place. We are steadfast in our support for education, as sponsors of our firm’s biannual Teacher Appreciation Awards. We started these awards several years ago to recognize and honor the educators who exceed expectations and have a tremendous impact on our community as they teach and care for our children. Candidates for the award are nominated by personal submissions. We provide three winners with both a cash award and a contribution toward classroom supplies.
Education remains a top priority for the De Castroverde family. In addition to the many teachers who were influential to the law group, close family members of the De Castroverde family have experience working in public school systems. The firm has also provided scholarships to promising students and has made it possible for local children to attend FC Lights soccer games in honor of the Clark County first responder community.
De Castroverde’s Roots in Serving the People
De Castroverde Law Group has a long history of championing the underdog. De Castroverde Law was founded in 2005 by brothers Orlando and Alex De Castroverde. Orlando and Alex grew up doing odd jobs in their father’s law firm, founded in the mid-1960s. Waldo De Castroverde put himself through law school after immigrating to the United States from Cuba, where he had rebelled against the Castro regime in the 1960s. Orlando and Alex formed the De Castroverde Law Group as a successor law firm to their father’s business after he passed away.
Orlando and Alex emphasize responsive customer and client service. We will work with you to answer the key questions you have about your case, which may include:
- What are the grounds for filing a personal injury case?
- Are my injuries quantifiable and long-term?
- How does a personal injury claim compare to a lawsuit?
If you’ve never been involved in a lawsuit, you will probably have more questions than these. An attorney at De Castroverde will patiently guide you through the process until we find a solution.
