Providing Skilled Counsel After Your Accident

A catastrophic accident can upend your life in an instant. If you have been seriously injured, it can be difficult to focus on healing and securing compensation for a careless act.

This is where I come in. I’m Charles W. Applegate, a personal injury attorney and founder of Applegate Law Office in Santa Rosa. I am a tireless champion for Californians harmed by reckless or negligent individuals, organizations or businesses. When you retain me, I will take on your legal burden so that you concentrate on your rehabilitation.

Equipped To Take On Difficult Cases

For nearly 20 years, I have helped countless clients throughout Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, and Northern California navigate California’s complex legal process efficiently. I use this insight to identify an effective course of action that limits the time you spend pursuing a claim. Whether your personal injury matter is straightforward or complex, I am qualified to handle your case.

I have successfully represented clients harmed in accidents caused by:

  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Negligent security
  • Animal attacks
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Assault and battery
  • Police misconduct

As your advocate, I will look out for your best interests from the beginning until the end of your case. If an insurance company has offered you a payout, I will review the offer to make sure that it is fair.

Determining What Your Claim Is Worth

Drawing on my extensive experience, I know how to assess personal injury claims and determine what they are worth. After a severe accident, your injuries could limit your earning potential and you could face years of rehabilitation. Your settlement offer should cover not only medical bills but also ongoing and future expenses.

If I believe the offer is too low, I will fight for the outcome you deserve. I have secured maximum compensation for clients in and out of the courtroom.
