Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyers
Help For People Injured in Serious Accidents
Personal injury comes down to one thing: you were injured due to someone else's negligence. When this happens, you have the right to hold that person, company, or government agency responsible and gain compensation for your injuries and expenses. Insurance companies and other people's lawyers will try to get you to accept a small payout and sign away your rights, but don’ let this happen. You deserve an LA lawyer to represent you and fight for justice.

Aggressive and Compassionate Advocacy
Getting involved in a car accident or some other injury-producing accident can have devastating, lifelong consequences. You need an advocate on your side who understands what you are going through. To us, our clients are like family – and we always fight for our clients' rights.
After accidents, it's common to be placed on disability and to be physically unable to work. We understand this and work with clients to help maintain their finances while they are recovering from their injuries. When necessary, we also assist with transportation costs to and from court hearings as well as financial aid via settlement-funding options.
We're on your side, and we have a firm that is designed to help you through this challenging time.
What About Catastrophic Injuries?Catastrophic injuries can result from just about any mishap - and they are life-altering. Recovery from such an injury can take years, and even then only partial recovery might be possible. Putting a financial value on a catastrophic injury can be difficult, since the long-term consequences are so far-reaching, but an experienced lawyer will know how to calculate what you need. It is important to remember that you and your loved ones deserve compensation to help ease the financial burdens you face now and down the road.
Catastrophic injuries are often categorized as one of the following:
- Head or spinal trauma without disability: Long-term, sometimes lifelong, pain and suffering usually accompany these types of injuries. They can be expensive in the long run due to the rehabilitation, physical therapy, and long-term psychological treatment that may be necessary after such a traumatic accident.
- Head or spinal trauma with disability: When permanent damage to the brain or spinal cord results in some form of disability. While modern treatments and technology allow for a fuller lifestyle than in the past, the long-term daily repercussions of this type of injury are hard to fully imagine after the initial accident.
- Fatality: Damage to the brain, spinal cord, or other parts of the body may be too severe and ultimately prove fatal.
No dollar amount can make up for the loss of a loved one; wrongful death claims are merely a way to hold people accountable for their actions and help offset the expenses involved in a sudden death.
Negligence and Liability
In a personal injury lawsuit, you are going to hear the terms "negligence" and "liability,” so let’s go over what these words mean. Negligence refers to when someone’s actions are contrary to what a reasonable person would be expected to do in the same situation. For example, firing a gun in a crowded area would be considered negligence (at the very least) because a reasonable person would not do this, knowing that others could be harmed.
Liability means that someone's negligence directly contributed to or caused an injury to someone else. In the previous example, if someone is struck by a bullet, the shooter can be held civilly liable since his negligence directly caused the victim’s injury.
On the other hand, while driving under the influence of alcohol is negligent, if someone is injured falling down the stairs across the street from a drunk driver, the driver is not liable for the fall, since the two events are not connected.
