Personal Injury


Car accidents do not damage only the vehicles involved. Accidents can cause serious injuries that in turn result in necessary medical care, treatment, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, lost wages and more. For the lucky people, injuries heal and eventually they get back to their lives. For those less fortunate, injuries may linger or, worse, be permanent or cause death.

Medical malpractice is when a doctor or other medical care provider acts carelessly or negligently and causes injury to a patient. Have you or a loved one been a victim of medical malpractice? Seek the experienced and trusted counsel of the Ventura medical malpractice attorneys at Renshaw & Associates.

If you believe you were treated below the standard of care, you could have a legal claim against those responsible for your injuries. The standard of care refers to the standard accepted by health care professionals in the same position faced with similar circumstances. Thus, you could sue a health care provider who did not inform you, misdiagnosed your condition, failed to diagnose you or used the wrong treatment.

We have experience with the following types of medical malpractice cases against doctors, nurses, hospitals, staff, chiropractors and others:

  • Misdiagnosis (pronouncing the wrong diagnosis)
  • Failure to diagnose (not diagnosing a condition in time to treat it, missing something when reading an X-ray, etc.)
  • Hospital/doctor neglect
  • Surgical errors (leaving instruments inside the body, puncturing an organ, etc.)
  • Postsurgical treatment errors
  • Wrongful birth (improper delivery that results in brain damage or other defects)
  • Incorrect prescriptions
  • Improper care of the elderly
  • Other negligence/carelessness involving ordering appropriate tests, referrals to specialists, administering anesthesia or emergency room care

Dog bites make up a large portion of personal injury cases in California and across the country. Victims are often left with both physical and emotional scarring. The lawyers at Renshaw & Associates work diligently to maximize our clients’ recoveries and help them get the financial compensation they need for their losses.

Santa Barbara And Ventura County Strict Liability Lawyers

In California, dog owners have absolute responsibility to ensure the public’s safety by keeping their pets under control. At Renshaw & Associates, our Ventura County dog bite lawyers have extensive experience bringing claims against dog owners. On behalf of our injured clients, we seek accountability and compensation for their losses.

Strict liability means that when a dog bites someone, the owner is held legally responsible for the damages. Owners must pay for costs associated with injuries and other damages, including medical care and treatment, emergency room care, plastic surgery, hospitalization, treatment for emotional or psychological trauma, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Each case is different and the damages could vary based on the severity of the injuries:

  • Cuts, lacerations and abrasions
  • Punctures
  • Fractures
  • Crush injuries
  • Infections
  • Nerve damage
  • Disability
  • Deformity
  • Scarring
  • Wrongful death

We are accomplished trial lawyers, skilled in personal injury litigation and all aspects of the trial process. Under dog bite law, we will seek to prove that you (the victim) were legally on the property where the dog bite occurred and that the attack caused you injury. We will help you obtain the compensation you need in any dog owner negligence case.

Our personal injury practice is focused on protecting the individual and obtaining the best possible result.



Product liability cases are a type of personal injury case involving injuries caused by products, including manufactured goods such as toys, automotive parts, medicine and medical parts and devices. Defective products are those that are capable of injuring a person due to defects in manufacturing or design. As a consumer, you are protected by the law when you purchase a product that is defective or dangerous.

At Renshaw & Associates, we represent Californians injured by dangerous and defective products. Our Ventura County product liability lawyers bring a long history of success to our clients across Southern California. We have extensive experience managing large teams of attorneys on large, complex cases. We have the knowledge and resources in this area to handle and win all range of cases. Thorough investigation, understanding of technical issues and effective trial advocacy are the keys to our success in personal injury and product liability.

Contact Renshaw & Associates and let us discuss with you how we can get you the maximum compensation for your loss or injury.

Manufacturing Defects

If you were injured by a product because it was different than others like it and did not work the way it should, you could have a legal claim against the manufacturer and recover compensation and damages for your losses. Examples include brake or tire defects in motor vehicles and toys that function improperly and create hazardous conditions for children. There are too many types of product manufacturing defects to enumerate, but rest assured that we can handle whatever your case presents.

Design Defects

Defects in product design can also cause injury or death. These defects, however, are usually common to an entire line of products. Most design cases involve defects to the structure of a product or a lack of safety features.

To discuss your case and find out whether you can bring a claim for your injuries, contact our firm today.

Advances in technology and medical science mean that people are living longer than ever before. California’s elderly population is no exception, which means that quality care is in demand. Elder abuse is a sad reality of the growth in numbers of our older community members. Elder abuse is not only physical abuse of an elderly person. It can also be situations where someone takes advantage of an elderly individually financially.

Elder abuse happens at nursing homes, long-term care facilities and even at home. The attorneys at Renshaw & Associates assist individual victims and family members in bringing civil claims against those responsible for abuse and neglect. Our personal injury practice focuses on the civil component of these wrongful acts, but criminal penalties are available as well. Contact our Ventura County elder abuse attorneys if you or a loved one is a victim. We have experience handling all aspects of these claims and lawsuits:

  • Neglect
  • Abandonment
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation (fraud involving repairs, sales, health care, estate planning changes and real estate issues, as well as various types of scams)
  • False allegations (We are also very experienced in defending family members and others who have been wrongly accused of such abuse. If you have been accused, you should seek experienced legal counsel immediately.)

Santa Barbara And Ventura County Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers

To bring a claim for elder abuse or nursing home neglect, we must show that there was maltreatment of the older adult. There are more layers involved, but that is the basic idea. We evaluate these cases closely to help clients understand their rights and how their cases will likely proceed.

Seniors are at risk for abuse and exploitation because they are more dependent on others for care and are more likely to be trusting and in need of socialization. Taking advantage of those weaknesses is unacceptable and we provide aggressive advocacy to combat this form of abuse.
