Professional History

Kenneth W. Turner has been in private practice since 1981. In 1988, he opened his own law firm specializing in Subrogation and Civil Litigation. With the steady growth of his practice, he now maintains two offices located in Sacramento and Chico, California.

Due to the nature and diversity of Mr. Turner's client base, his practice is national in scope. He has handled matters in virtually every county in California, as well as complicated cases on a national and international level.

Over the course of his legal career, Mr. Turner has developed specialized programs responsive to the individual needs and requirements of his clients in the area of Subrogation. This includes matters ranging from simple auto collisions to complex fire litigation, construction defect cases, and premises liability.

Mr. Turner has successfully prosecuted widely publicized high-exposure cases on behalf of insurance companies and their insureds. Notably, numerous cases against PG&E and other public utilities in connection with major fires losses, as well as many cases related to the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and a large number of property damage cases against public entities.

Mr. Turner is also handling many cases against the federal government and the Bureau of Land Management in connection with their burn policies, which have resulted in devastating losses to both insurance companies and their insureds.

Further, he has successfully handled many cases against major manufacturers of a wide variety of household appliances, fixtures and tools, including electric blankets, coffee makers, toasters, ovens, ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers, heaters, dryers, televisions, VCRs, clock radios, "boom box" stereos, extension cords, battery chargers, and electric garage door openers.

He has also been highly successful in handling cases against automobile manufacturers, as well as manufacturers and installers of heating or HVAC products.
