WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF ACCIDENTS WE CAN HELP WITH?
Our firm can handle virtually any form of personal injury. Under the California legal system, if someone commits an act against another person which results in the other individual suffering harm, then he, or she, is entitled to damages in order to compensate for these losses. There are countless ways in which a personal injury can occur. In many cases, these injuries could have been prevented. Some examples include:
Car Accidents: According to the LA County, Department of Public Health, there are over 50,000 injuries each year due to car accidents. Over 500 fatalities occur, due to car accidents in Los Angeles. Our car accident lawyers have over 30 years of combined experience, getting victims compensation.
Motorcycle Accidents: Each year, there are thousands of motorcycle accident injuries in LA county. Almost 100 fatalities occur each year, due to these accidents. Due to the fact motorcyclists don’t offer as much protection as cars, motorcycle drivers are at greater risk for injuries when an accident does occur.
Pedestrian Accidents: Due to the large amount of cars in Los Angeles, each year there are many pedestrian accidents, and deaths. In many instances, negligence and carelessness results in pedestrians being sideswiped, or in some cases, run over.
other injuries include: dog bites, work injuries, slip and fall, brain injuries, construction accidents, and more.
HOW LONG DOES A PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT TAKE?
Every case is different. Not each case follows the exact steps we outlined above. Some complex cases can take a large amount of time, and in some instances – many years. If you’re a victim, you only get one opportunity to pursue a claim for your injuries. Picking the right injury attorney and trusting him/her is key, to getting the settlement you deserve.
HOW MUCH DOES A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER CHARGE?
We operate on a contingency basis. This means, unless we win your case, we don’t charge a fee. Injuries often result in financial hardship to the victim, and his/her family. We believe that financial hardships shouldn’t make it so that you can’t afford to hire the lawyer you want. We work with clients, and never charge a penny unless we win. We front all the costs associated with your claim.

WHO CAN I SUE?
Personal injury lawsuit are generally filed against the party whose direct negligence caused your injury.
Doctors, hospitals, medical service providers who fail to exercise caution, and fail to provide the high level of care they are required to provide
Motorists who drive negligently, and fail to pay attention when driving. Our attorneys understand your pain, and suffering, and can help you get compensation.
Property owners who don’t properly maintain their premises, and don’t provide adequate security, and cause accidents on their premises
Dog owners who fail to care for their pets, which results in pain and suffering to victims (i.e. dog bites)
Product manufacturers who negligently create products which have defects that can hurt consumers. Examples include products geared towards children, which children can choke on
I’M NOT SURE WHOSE RESPONSIBLE LEGALLY FOR MY INJURIES?
In order to file a personal injury claim against another party, there must be proof that establishes that another party was liable for your injuries. In order to pursue a claim, you have to be able to prove that the other party was intentionally doing the action, was negligent, or is legally liable.
This is a form of personal injury liability where someone intentionally acted in a way which resulted in harm to you. For example, if someone shoots you with a gun, or intentionally runs you over with their car, then is a form of intentional wrongdoing. For example, if you were the victim of a gun shot wound, you may be able to file both a personal injury(civil) lawsuit, and a criminal complaint as well.
Under California law surround negligence, a party is responsible for injuries done to another person if they were acting carelessly. During a negligence trial, a judge/jury is responsible for determining what a normal person would have done after hearing the facts of the case. Excuses such as being intoxicated aren’t good enough to excuse someone from their negligent actions.
In California, in order to win a claim under negligence laws, the injured party has to prove a few things:
Duty: Everyone has a duty to act reasonably in order to protect others from harm. For example, a store owner is supposed to protect customers from slipping and falling. Someone whose driving a car, has the duty to not be texting while driving.
Damages: In order to win a personal injury claim, you need to be able to prove there were injuries that happened. Damages occur in the form of physical injuries, emotional injuries, financial loss, or property damage.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER A PERSONAL INJURY?
What you do after an injury can be more important than the personal injury lawyer you hire, or anything else. First and foremost, it’s important you seek immediate medical attention. Convey ALL of your injuries, no matter how minor they are, to the attending physician or medical staff. By reporting these injuries, it provides a record/paper trail of evidence exhibiting the nature of your injuries. When you go to occur, this will be a form of evidence. When an injury occurs, take photographs of the injuries, and keep records of things like:time lost from work, pain experienced, limitations of activities, etc.
