Angelus Oaks is an unincorporated town in San Bernardino County, California, USA, and has a population of 289. It is located north of Mentone, California on State Highway 38. Its downtown consists of a general store, a restaurant, gas pumps, a post office (zip code 92305), a real estate office, and a United States Forest Service office. Within town are two commercial lodges for overnight visitors. Angelus Oaks is served by the San Bernardino County Fire Department Station 15 and two private water companies. A historic one-room school house serving grades 1-5 closed permanently in 2004. A few miles past Angelus Oaks, in the Barton Flats area, there are multiple public Forest Service campsites and group camps run by various churches and non-profit organizations, including YMCA. The two largest and most active camps are the Boy Scout Camp Tahquitz and Camp Cedar Falls, run by the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Jenks Lake hosts fishing and some swimming activities. Angelus Oaks was initially called Camp Angelus. In the 1970s, when the postal service decided to combine the two small post offices of Camp Angelus and Seven Oaks, closing the Seven Oaks location, they renamed the remaining office "Angelus Oaks". That name stuck with the town.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury includes injuries to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. If the negligence of another person can be proved, the person who is injured may be entitled to monetary compensation from that person who was negligent. Attorneys often represent clients on a contingency basis, in which the attorneys fee is a percentage of the compensation the plaintiff receives, payable when the case is resolved. Cases involving people who have suffered an injury for which someone else (an individual or business) may be legally liable -- may include injuries caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and emotional distress.
