Representing Victims in Personal Injury Cases
Marin County personal injury lawyer Michael S. Biggs has experience assisting people who have been hurt as a result of someone else’s negligent or intentionally harmful acts. In general, each of us owes others a duty to act with the same level of care that a reasonably prudent person would use in a similar situation. Negligence often arises in situations involving drivers who fail to handle their vehicles safely, property owners that have dangerous conditions on their premises, and medical professionals who provide inadequate care, as well as companies that make unreasonably dangerous products that harm consumers.
The damages that may be available in these cases often include compensation for medical expenses, the costs of future treatment, lost wages and earning capacity, property damage, and pain and suffering. It is important to seek legal counsel promptly so that evidence useful to your case may be gathered and all procedural guidelines are followed. Michael S. Biggs is ready to fight for your rights to the fullest extent of the law.Assistance with Resolving Estates and Trusts Disputes
Mr. Biggs frequently represents beneficiaries and trustees in cases involving the distribution of trust assets.

Since trustees oversee assets and funds for the benefit of the beneficiaries, they have a fiduciary duty to use due care in exercising their power and to make decisions that are in the best interests of the beneficiaries. Common examples of legal disputes that may arise regarding a trust include breach of trust, breach of fiduciary duty, self-dealing, failure to distribute trust assets, and failure to provide an accounting.Experienced Guidance for Business Law Matters
