We can help you get medical attention, in addition to helping with all other elements of your case. 

Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrians are often hit by cars when walking on the street or crossing the street. Often, victims of pedestrians suffer immense injuries to fast/heavy cars.  Many pedestrians often assume it was their fault the got hurt – and don’t look into hiring a personal injury law firm. We recommend you speak to us, so we can conduct a full 360 investigation into the accident – and how it happened. 

Medical Malpractice: Healthcare providers are people, and make mistakes like everyone else. If a doctor, or nurses, mistake has harmed you – we can help correct that injustice. We can help you – by conducting an investigation into their conduct, and trying to determine how/when they deviated from an expected standard of care. We can build a case, in order to can you compensation. Often, these mistakes can follow you for the rest of your life. 

Slip and Fall: If you fall, or slip, on someone’s property then you may have a potential case. Property owners have a duty to maintain a safe environment for those who are on their property. If you slip, or fall, and are injured – as a result of inadequate – or unsafe, property conditions – then we may be able to help. We’ll conduct an investigation into the property and put together a personal injury claim that shows the property owner was irresponsible, and failed to maintain safe conditions.

Based on the findings of our investigation, we may be able to get you compensation for your injuries. 

Defective Products: Manufacturers are obligated to create safe products. It sounds simple, but often manufacturers fail to live up to this expectation. Often, consumers become collateral damage due to unsafe products. We encourage you to contact us, in order to help understand if you have a potential case.

What should you do after an injury?

What you do after an injury, can be more important the injury itself. Without proper documentation, and without alerting the authorities, the validity of your claim and injuries can be questioned. Here are some things you should after an accident accident. First and foremost, it’s crucial you write down as much about the accident as possible. If you have a cell phone, we recommend taking pictures of the surroundings so you can document what happened. Pictures are valuable because they can be potentially used in court, as evidence. Take as many pictures of the injuries you’ve suffered, in addition to the scene of the accident. The more evidence you have, the stronger your claim is. If you have time, write down information like the date, the weather, the location, and anything else specific that might be asked of you later. Try to also find witnesses, at the scene of the accident. If you can get a witness to corroborate your story to the police at the scene of the accident, the strength of your claim could be higher. 

Take as many pictures, notes, and recordings of conversations as possible. After you’ve secured all of this, we recommend you speak to a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. First, you should get medical attention. When you get medical attention immediately after an accident, it established a track record of your injuries – which proves the injuries happened as a result of the accident.

Determining Fault

In order to get compensation, you have to be able to establish fault – and a responsible party. Most accidents aren’t intentional, but they happen. Just because it’s an accident doesn’t mean the other party isn’t responsible. Our job, is to show to the court and opposing insurance company that the other party caused you harm – by acting in a manner that is not “reasonable.” We demonstrate that they are responsible, and that you have suffered emotionally, physically, and financially, as a result of your injures – which is the basis for the claim. If the court determines that you were acting careless, it may reduce the amount you are entitled to. Our goal is to look at the evidence, and then build a personal injury claim which proves your the victim.

Do you need to hire a Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney

It’s a well known fact, insurance companies make money – by denying personal injury claims. Their goal is to hinder, limit, and deny, your claim and give you as little money as possible. When you speak to them without an attorney, you have no leverage, and are at a potential disadvantage. Without a proper understanding of the law, you may find it difficult to compel them to play fair. Most victims don’t know the law, and don’t know enough to file a personal injury claim on their own due to a lack of knowledge and/or understanding. Insurance companies know this, and can play games in order to harm your chances of getting compensation. In some cases, victims may not understand the true value of their potential claim – and may settle for less. For example, many clients we’ve spoken to don’t know they can ask for future/past medical bills to be covered — or even future lost wages to be covered as a part of the final settlement/verdict. Our personal injury attorneys in Los Angeles can help advise you about your right, and tell you what you may be entitled to as a result of your injuries. One of things we do, as a part of your case – is do a full investigation into the case in order to secure necessary evidence that proves your point of view. 

When you hire an attorney, it’s likely an insurance company will take you – and your claim – more seriously, because they’ll be dealing with personal injury attorneys who understand the law – and are willing to go to court if necessary.

What if my injury was minor?

Many injuries can be minor, at first, and then escalate. Many people avoid getting treatment, or hiring an attorney, because they think their injuries are minor. Then, later, the injuries get worse, and so too does the pain. Many injuries have symptoms masked, due to a rush of adrenaline. As the adrenaline in your body wears off, the symptoms from the injury start appearing. You start feeling the pain, and noticing the injuries. It’s crucial you get medical attention so that you can make sure your ok. Afterwards, it could be beneficial to speak to an attorney to understand what you may be entitled to.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is my case worth?

    If you're the victim of a personal injury lawsuit, you can get compensation for a large number of things. You may be entitled to compensation for all sorts of damages. For example, you can get compensatory and punitive damages. The damages are typically paid to you by the other insurance company. Our attorneys can help advise on the specifics of this. Medical This is a very common type of damage. If you're the victim and had medical care associated with your case - then you get compensation for those expenses. You can get money for past, and future, medical expenses. If you have a disability, or if you'll have long term expenses - you are eligible for compensation for all of those expenses as a part of the verdict, or settlement we win for you. Lost Wages Many victims of personal injuries are unable to go to work. They suffer from reduced work capacity as a result of their injuries. Depending on the severity of your injuries, and the amount of work you missed - you can get competition for that. You can get compensation for reduced work capacity, in addition to any time you lost from work. Property Damage If your property was damaged as a result of the injury, you can get compensation for that as well. For example, if you were in a car accident - you are eligible for compensation to repair the car, and all other things associated with the accident that belonged to you. That can come in the final verdict or settlement with your case. Pain and Suffering Many victims get compensation for the emotional toll their injuries take on them. This is typically another form of damages, which is tacked onto the property damages, medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial damages you're getting. Loss of consortium This is a less common for of compensation. If you can prove that your accident resulted in a negative impact on your relationship with your spouse, then you can get compensation for a loss of consortium. If you can't maintain a normal spousal relationship, then this is grounds for loss of consortium. This damage goes directly to the affected spouse or family member.

  • Do I need to hire an attorney to pursue a case?

    Many victims choose to file a claim after they are involved in an accident. They wonder if hiring an attorney is the best idea or not. People who cause injuries typically have insurance companies. The company is responsible for covering the settlement or verdict given to the victim. In addition, the insurance company will have their own team of attorneys who are fighting tooth and nail to destroy your case. When you fully understand the significance of this - you'll realize that it's crucial you hire a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles to help represent your case. Having an attorney who understands the legal system, and who can work with you to get you the most amount of money is important. Filing a claim means more than filing forms. If you were to pursue a claim on your own, you'd have to do all the things an attorney normally would. You have to prove liability, and in addition, you have to prove damages. If there are no damages with your case, then it lowers the value of your claim. In addition, you have to be able to prove those damages came from the defendant. You have to conduct an investigation in order to find evidence that proves your side of the story. Insurance companies rely on the fact most victims are ignorant of the law and will never be able to go the distance with a claim. When you hire a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, you can rest assured you won't be bullied or forced into settling for an amount less than what you deserve. In some cases, it's crucial you go to court. When this happens, we can help you create a compelling case, and find witnesses in order to prove your side of the story.    

  • Do I need a lawyer in order to get money?

    Contrary to popular belief, you don't need an attorney. You can try negotiating on your own. Having said that - it's not a great idea. Many people try to handle their case on their own because they think they can't afford a lawyer. Contrary to that, they don't realize most attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. That means, they don't collect money upfront. In addition, they only get paid if compensation is attained on behalf of the victim. In exchange - the attorney collects a % of the final proceeds as payment. In our opinion, people who try to negotiate directly with an insurance provider get paid significantly less than if they had worked with a personal injury lawyer. It's crucial to remember, insurance companies make money when you lose money. If you have lifelong injuries, that's immense costs you'll incur. If you try to negotiate on your own, without knowing the full cost your injuries will have - you could end up losing not only your income, but also risk your families future.  It's crucial that you work with an attorney who can help you get compensation for things like future/past medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.

  • Should I accept an offer from the insurance company?

    It's typical for an insurance company to offer a settlement after an accident happens - and their party is at fault. To some, the the settlement will seem like a good offer. It comes unsolicited, and you feel like it's easy money. The thing you need to understand is that insurance companies make money by offering you the least amount of money possible. What that means, is if they're offering you money - your case is probably worth a lot more - and they are trying to pay you off early so you don't pursue it. We highly recommend you never take an offer from an insurance company without speaking to a attorney first. When you work with an attorney, you can get compensation for a number of things that the settlement from the insurance company won't cover Future medical expenses When you work with our attorneys, we can help you get compensation for past, and future, medical expenses. Often, injuries have short term and long term medical consequences. Injuries develop and worsen over time, and they can have permanent consequences. Any offer from an insurance company will certainly never cover those expenses. When you work  law firm, like ourselves, we can help have any future costs of treatments, doctor visits, and other medical expenses - covered as a part of your personal injury settlement/verdict. Loss of Income Many people lose income after being injured. They take time off from work, and end up being unable to work to their full capacity in the future. In most cases, people are injured so badly - they cannot continue working. They have to find another job, work reduced hours, or accept disability. We can help you win a settlement/verdict that covers any loss of income as a result of your injuries. We use mathematical formula's to help calculate your earning potential - and then determine what income you are going to lose as a result. Disability benefits are never enough to replace the income you would've earned. The offer you get from an insurance company will never cover things like that. In summary Never accept an insurance companies initial settlement offer. It's not in your best interest. Insurers will take advantage of your insecurities and try to force you to take a settlement offer that's not in your favor.  

  • How are personal injury settlements/verdicts taxed

    Litigations for personal injury cases can years, or months, to settle. After you pay all of the fees and medical expenses incurred during the case - the plaintiff will get a lump sum. In some cases, the sum can be setup as a structured settlement. In some cases, the settlement can/will be taxed. Depending on what the settlement is for, the settlement may be taxed. If the settlement is compensation for physical injuries, or physical illnesses, then the compensation isn't taxed. If you are going to incur on-going medical costs, or if the compensation is for lost wages, then it could be untaxed. Typically, each case is different - so the part of your settlement which is taxed may vary. If the settlement is compensation for a mental condition, then it might be taxed. For example, if it's for anguish, or if it's punitive damages, then that might be taxed. Another situation where it might be taxed, is if there is interest on the verdict and settlement. The interest may be subject to tax as well.  

  • How long will the case take to be resolved?

  • Do I need to worry about the statute of limitations?

    Victims of personal injuries need to understand what the statute of limitations are - especially if they don't hire a attorney in Los Angeles immediately. In order to get compensation - you have to file a lawsuit within a set period of time. If you don't file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations time span, you cannot file it later. Each state has different time deadlines when it comes to when you can file a injury lawsuit. The statute of limitations are very specific, and strict. There are little to no exceptions to the statute of limitations. Often, the #1 reason many victims lose the ability to get compensation is because they fail to file a lawsuit within this set period. The statute of limitations begins from the day you get injured. This time limit can be anywhere from 1 to 6 years, depending on where you live. If you are going to sue the government, the statute of limitations can be much less. In some cases, our lawyers in Los Angeles may be able to extend the statute of limitations for you. There is a concept called the discovery rule. This rule allows you to extend the timeframe in which you can file a personal injury claim - in the event you weren't aware of the injury. If the injury is discovered after the statute of limitations, and it can be proven that there is a defendant who caused the injuries - then this can be a cause for the statute of limitations being extended. Another example of where the limitations can be extended is if there are delayed symptoms. For example, if you were exposed to asbestos - but the symptoms of it didn't appear until later - then the discovery rule could help get compensation later. Even if the statute of limitations have passed, you can still get compensation. Another way to extend the statute of limitations is if the defendant left the state after committing the injury. In this case, the statute of limitations are frozen, while the defendant is outside the state boundaries. The statute of limitations can also be extended in the event the plaintiff is under the age of 18, is mentally ill, or has a disability.  

  • What should I do after im injured?

    What you do after you suffer a personal injury can be more important the injury itself. It's crucial you get immediate medical treatment. Contrary to popular belief, insurance companies are neither on your side - nor are they fair. They make money denying your claim. They'll find every single possible reason - even if if you feel it's not legitimate - to deny your claim, or devalue it. One of the things insurance companies look at - is WHEN you started getting treatment. If there is a large gap between when you're injured, and when you get treatment - that'll result in them questioning the validity of your claim. If there's a large enough delay, they'll claim that your injuries happened to some other accident which occurred during that "large" period of time. That's why it's crucial you get treatment immediately. Go to an emergency room, or a doctor, or urgent care. Get diagnostic workup done, in order to understand what's wrong. After that, call Farar & Lewis! Our injury attorneys can advise you on what happens next, and the value of your claim.

  • How much do we charge?

    Farar & Lewis LLP works on a contingency fee basis. That means there are no upfront costs or fees. We advance all the legal costs associated with your case. In addition, if we're unable to win your case - or get you any compensation we don't charge anything. It truly is that simple.
