A New Job
Working at a Personal Injury Law Firm
By Rob Cockerham |
I got a job with a law firm, helping build their website, re-working their intranet site, editing videos, creating presentations for trial and other techy stuff! It is one of the largest firms in Sacramento, with about a hundred employees and almost thirty lawyers.
The entire firm is set up to represent personal injury cases, so the cases are car accidents, boat crashes, product liability problems, wrongful death, child abuse, etc. The firm name is Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora, LLP. Those are the names of the managing partners, but there are a bunch more partners and associate attorneys.
Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora, LLP. I wouldn't mind a shorter company name, but it is really interesting work, and this firm is probably Sacramento's best firm for injury litigation. Perhaps you recognize some of the cases they have litigated in the past:
- Girl with peanut allergy dies at Camp Sacramento
- Boy crushed by deteriorated stone wall in Lassen National Park
- The death and destruction from the San Bruno gas pipeline explosion
- The Sacramento mother who died as a result of participation in a radio contest where she was challenged to drink more water than anyone else.
- The Kings player injured when an air-filled workout ball failed.
That's right. They represented the plaintiff in all of these cases. Before I got this job, I had no idea one single firm successfully handled all of these iconic cases.
They are the #1 most capeable firm in Sacramento. They have some peers in San Francisco, but DBBWC is the greatest firm within 100 miles for catastrophic injuries and accidents.
Tragically, they don't advertise on TV, so I won't get to help with any awesome green-screen car-crash video effects.
As an added bonus, I'm learning video editing and getting to know a lot about the medical and insurance world. For example, I now know where the Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar sections of the spine are!
I probably won't find a lot of crossover between my life's work of experiments and car accident litigation, but my new exposure to this industry has me thinking of a ton of new projects and community service projects.
