We Handle Most Injuries
Our personal injury attorneys handle most forms of injuries. Here are some of the most frequent types of injuries we handle.
Car Accidents: Southern California is filled with cars. Many people have a car, and most houses have multiple cars. Many drivers, and bystanders, often get hurt as a result of car accidents. Regardless of when, where, or how, the accident happened – we can help victims of auto accidents. Whether you were riding your bike, and were hit by a car – or whether you were a passenger in a car – we can help. Our goal is to help victims of auto accidents recover. 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. We recommend you speak to us, so we can conduct a full investigation into the accident.
Slip and Fall: If you fall on someone’s property, you may have a 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 the result of inadequate or unsafe property conditions, we may be able to help. We will conduct an investigation into the property and put together a personal injury claim that will show how the property owner was irresponsible, or failed to maintain safe conditions. Our goal is to get you as much compensation as possible.
Premises Accidents: If you suffer an accident while on someone else’s premise, we encourage you to call us. If there were wet floors, or cracked floors, then we encourage you to contact us to get a risk-free consultation. Based on the findings of our investigation, we may be able to get you compensation for your injuries.
What should you do after an injury?
What you do after an injury can be more important the injury itself. Without proper documentation and alerting the authorities, the validity of your claim and injuries can be questioned. First and foremost, it’s crucial you write down as much about the accident as possible at the accident scene. 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 will be higher.
Call the police and ambulance immediately. Go to the hospital for evaluation. After you’ve done all of this, we recommend you speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. When you get medical attention immediately after an accident, it establishes a track record of your injuries and validates your claim.
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 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.
Do you need to hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
It is a well settled fact that 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. 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. We can help advise you as to your rights, and what you may be entitled to as a result of your injuries.
When you hire an attorney, insurance companies take you and your claim more seriously.
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. Later, the injuries get worse, and so 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. It is crucial to get medical attention immediately, regardless of how you perceive your injury at the time of the accident.
