Types of Injuries We Handle

We handle many types of injuries. Here are some of the leading causes of injuries we frequently see.

Automobile Accidents: Los Angeles is a city filled with cars. Many people often get hurt as a result of cars. Often, it’s one car hitting another car. In another cases, it might be because you were hit while walking on street, or riding your bicycle. Regardless of the situation, our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys can help with all types of car related accidents.

Pedestrian Accidents: Often, many people get hit by cars while walking on the street, or crossing the street. People tend to think, as pedestrians, it was their fault. That’s incorrect – and we can help. Often, victims of pedestrian accidents suffer extreme injuries due to fast moving cars.

Medical Malpractice: Doctors are people, and make mistakes just like others. Unfortunately, those mistakes can be costly. We can help you get compensation, if you or a loved one suffered at the hands of a physician.

Slip and Fall: Falling, or slipping, on someone else’s property is a very common occurrence. If you slipped, or fell, due to the property owners negligence – then we may be able to get you compensation.

Construction Accidents: Construction sites are dangerous places. If you suffer an injury due to a defect in machinery, or due to negligence on the part of a third party – we can help get compensation for your injuries.

Premise Accidents: If you suffered an injury due to a dangerous condition someone else’s property – such as due to a wet floor, then you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. We can help you get compensated.

Defective Products: Manufacturers have to create products that are safe. When manufacturers fail to abide by that – innocent victims become collateral damage. We can help you get compensation if you purchased or used a defective product.

What should you do after an injury?

If you or a loved one suffer an injury, there are some important steps to take immediately after the accident. It’s important you write down as much as you can. If you have a phone, take pictures of the surroundings. Take as many pictures of your injuries, and of the scene of the accident – so you can properly annotate what happened. Record the date, the location, the weather, and the names of anyone who was there. Try to get them give testimony immediately at the scene of the accident. It’s important you get their testimony so you can submit it as evidence in a future injury claim. It’s crucial you do all of this, while things are fresh.

Take pictures, and notes, and record any conversations you have with everyone. It’s important you contact a Los Angeles personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you should get medical attention as quickly as possible. By getting medical attention – you create a track record of the injuries, and in addition – you’re able to show that the injuries you suffered were due to the accident that happened.

Determining Fault

Personal injury claims rely on being able to establish fault. You have to be able to point a finger at whoever was at fault for the accident. It doesn’t have to be intentional. Most accidents are not intentional. Many are by pure accident. Whenever the court tries to determine fault, they’ll look at what a reasonable person would’ve done to avoid the accident – and if the person whose the victim acted in such a manner.

Our job as your personal injury lawyer is to show that the other party caused you harm – by acting negligently. We use this, as a way to show you’re entitled to compensation. If the court determines you were acting careless, then the other party may pay a reduced amount, or nothing at all. Our job is to help analyze the accident, look at the evidence, and use that to build a personal injury claim which proves you were the victim – and the other side was negligent. 

Do you need to hire a Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer

Insurance companies make money – by giving you as little money as possible. It’s in their inherent interest to deny your injury claim. When you speak to them, without a lawyer on your team – you are at an inherent disadvantage. You have no leverage, and no way, of making them play fair. Most individuals don’t know the law, and can’t file a injury claim on their own – due to lack of knowledge. Insurance companies are aware of that, and will use that against you. In addition, you may not ask for everything you’re owed. Most people don’t know that they can ask for things like: future and past medical bills, or even future lost wages as a result of their injuries. If you hire a attorney, it’s possible to get compensation for pain and suffering, in addition to all the property damages and economic damages you’ve suffered. Our personal injury lawyers can help get your long term medical bills associated with your injuries compensated for. Whether it be therapy, or medication, stemming from your injury claim – we can help. If you’re not at fault for an injury, it can be crucial to hire an attorney to get you compensation. Our personal injury attorneys in Los Angeles can help secure all the evidence necessary to win your case. In addition, because of our experience – insurance companies will take us more seriously than an individual.

What if my injury was minor?

Many people think their injuries are only minor – and thus avoid getting treatment, or seeing a personal injury attorney. They shrug it off – until a few weeks later, their injuries get worse and the pain gets worse. Just because the injuries seem minor today – doesn’t mean they won’t get worse. Many injuries have their symptoms masked, due to a rush of adrenaline from when the injury happened. Gradually, as the adrenaline wears off – the symptoms start appearing. That’s why it’s a good idea to not only get medical treatment, but also speak to an attorney as well. In addition to medical expenses, you could also be compensated for the pain and suffering you endure, from your injuries.

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 Los Angeles personal injury 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 personal injury 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 personal injury 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 personal injury 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 personal injury 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 personal injury 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 personal injury 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 los angeles personal injury 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 personal injury 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 a personal injury 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 personal injury 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 personal 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 personal injury 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 Los Angeles personal 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.
