Fighting For Justice For Everyday People

Life can seem painful, diminished or hopeless after a serious injury, especially one caused by someone else. Your injuries may have crushed the trajectory of your future, forcing you to change career, family and life goals. You may wonder if you can even keep up with basic survival needs.

Attorney Horacio Barraza, founder of The Law Offices of Horacio Barraza, has been practicing law in California since 1995. Much of his career has been dedicated to representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. His clients have included construction workers, car accident victims, motorcyclists, pedestrians, students and other people just like you. He understands the costs – both tangible and intangible – that accidents impose upon individuals and families.

Attorney Barraza works with clients in San Diego County and throughout California. He is fluent in Spanish and can advise Spanish-speakers directly, without an interpreter. He is attentive to each client and sympathetic to their suffering. This fuels his passion for seeking compensation for injury victims that can support their recovery and their adaptation to any permanent changes the accident created for them.

Successful Representation For All Types Of Injuries

Mr. Barraza has been involved, as primary counsel or co-counsel, in 30 cases that resulted in verdicts or settlements of more than a million dollars. Before setting out on his own, he learned from other experienced California personal injury lawyers in larger firms. This has allowed him to represent injury victims from all walks of life with personal injury cases that have included motor vehicle crashes, bike/pedestrian accidents, animal bites, construction site accidents and more.

Even in less life-threatening injury cases, compensation can aid each client in making a faster return to their previous quality of life. The Law Offices of Horacio Barraza can help you prepare a strong claim that stands a strong chance of winning in court or resulting in a fair settlement.

Sexual Harassment Incidents Cause Personal Injuries, Too

Many persons are aware that some acts of sexual harassment can bring criminal charges, but fewer know that a personal injury civil suit can be filed against an alleged perpetrator. Harassing, intimidating and bullying behaviors of a sexual nature can cause lasting damage. Attorney Barraza understands the nuances of personal injury lawsuits based upon sexual harassment and stands ready to represent clients and hold the other parties accountable.
