Common Injuries that Lead to Los Angeles Personal Injury Claims

While we may not be able to give you an exact figure right off the bat, we’ll know how to come up with a value that satisfies all of your present and future accident-related needs. Factors that may be considered when determining the amount of compensation you’re owed include the facts of what really transpired, the extent of your injuries, your age and earning capacity, whether you shared a percentage of fault, and other situational factors. We can assign a value to each damage caused by the accident.

Things to Do After Being Involved in an Accident

Since an accident is completely unexpected, the impact can leave you feeling frazzled and disoriented. Nonetheless, it’s imperative that you remain calm, assess the situation, and take the right steps to make sure that you and any other person involved are safe and have the proper documentation that will position you to recover compensation for your injuries. Here are the steps you can take to get you on track to a speedy recovery:

  1. Examine Yourself and Your Passenger for Injuries

Immediately after an accident, examine yourself and any other persons onboard for injuries. If there are any injuries, call an ambulance as soon as possible so you can be examined for injuries that you may not be able to identify. If you’re advised to go to the hospital, follow the recommendations even if you feel okay at the time. Be sure to request a complete examination and follow the orders for treatment.

  1. Call the Police

In most cases, especially if the other party was at fault, they may attempt to persuade you to settle the accident without having the police involved. By not reporting the accident, you can easily forgo any compensation you could have been entitled to. So, call the police so they can write up a report detailing the car crash. Also, ask for a copy of the report because your lawyer will need it when preparing your claim.

  1. Collect Evidence

The best time to find out how a crash happened is right after it occurred. It’s important to write down the contact information of everyone involved, including their names, driver’s license numbers, and addresses. Additionally, make sure that you take photos of the crash scene or ask someone to do it for you if you can’t. If there were witnesses nearby, try to get their contact information and written witness statements. Also, keep vehicle parts that broke as a result of the accident because they may help your attorney gather critical information on how the accident occurred.

Also important, take photos of your injuries, document your impressions of what hurts, and get a complete report from your doctor. These steps can better your chance of getting the recovery you need.

  1. Do Not Admit Fault

Even if you think the accident was your fault or you’re partly to blame, do not admit any wrongdoing. Even saying you’re sorry can be misconstrued and keep you from obtaining a recovery for damages. Also, do not tell the other driver you’re not hurt even if you don’t feel any pain. This can be used to deny or underpay your claim. However, don’t lie, just say you don’t know and will be seeking medical attention.

  1. Notify Your Insurance Provider

Many people who have been involved in an accident do not file a claim because they fear their rates will go up. Fortunately, California is one of only two states that make it illegal for insurance companies to raise rates when the policyholder was not at fault. Whether or not you were at fault, it’s important to report the accident to your insurance provider promptly.

  1. Contact an Attorney

Retaining an experienced personal injury attorney is the best move to obtain compensation from liable parties. At The LA Personal Injury Law Firm, we will send investigators and experts to the crash site to analyze the situation and collect information. We’ve handled hundreds of personal injury cases in the greater Los Angeles area and have the expertise to analyze your case and protect your rights.

Our Practice Areas

Personal injury cases are best handled by attorneys who have specialized expertise in this field. Unlike other law firms that try to be everything to everyone, we handle accident and personal injury cases only. By limiting our services to one area, we have developed a high level of capability and expertise in the field. This has led to exceptional service and results for each of our clients. We handle a broad range of personal injury cases in Los Angeles, which include:

Bicycling in the greater Los Angeles area has become an affordable commuting option as well as a popular form of recreation. Unfortunately, the increase in bicycle use has resulted in an increase in traffic accidents involving cyclists. Whether a bicyclist is on the bike lane, sidewalk, or sharing the road, motor vehicles pose a threat.

Most motorists tend to operate their vehicles with little-to-no disregard for cyclists, especially when sharing the road. Bicycle accidents happen in numerous ways, for instance when a careless driver drifts into a bike lane and swipes a bicycle rider, when a driver doesn’t see a cyclist making a turn on a busy street, when a cyclist is riding on the sidewalk and collides with a car, or when a cyclist gets hit by car coming out of a parking lot or driveway.

With the exposed nature of bicycles, even a minor impact with a motor vehicle can result in serious or catastrophic injuries to the person on two wheels. Unfortunately, there’s usually a prejudice against bicycle riders, placing full responsibility on them or wrongfully accusing them even when it’s not their fault. If you’ve suffered injuries while riding a bicycle, don’t allow the other party’s insurance provider to hold you liable for the mishap wrongfully. The LA Personal Injury Law Firm can investigate the case and collect evidence to help you prove your case.

Because of Los Angeles’ rapid growth, there has been a significant increase in the number of city and school buses. Unfortunately, the congestion associated with this population growth fuels the rate at which horrendous bus accidents occur. Whenever you board a city transit or put your child onto a school bus in Los Angeles, you fully entrust the bus driver, the bus company, and a host of others with you and your child’s. Passenger bus drivers and companies or the city department that regulates passenger buses owe a higher standard of care to passengers and fellow motorists than the typical driver. This due to the inherent risk related to driving large buses on the public roads, and the exceptional trust placed in them by the public.

Moreover, because of their large size, limited maneuverability, and lack of clear visibility, bus accidents usually lead to serious injuries, as well as fatalities that result in wrongful death claims. The question of who is liable for the crash is determined by the circumstances of the accident. Possible defendants in a bus accident include the bus company, bus driver, state or local governments, bus maintenance companies, manufacturer of the bus and/or its parts, school districts and boards, drivers of other vehicles, and affiliated tour operations and cruise lines.

After conducting a thorough investigation, the attorneys at The LA Personal Injury Law Firm can identify defendants, demonstrate negligence on their part, and hold them liable for damages.

Car accidents are common in southern California, with each year having a record of nearly half a million crashes. However, the reality of these boggling statistics never hits home until you or your loved one becomes a car accident victim. Car accidents occur in numerous ways, but most of them are caused by a driver’s bad decision, legally referred to as “negligence.” A poor decision compounded with the speed and the size of the vehicle can be a recipe for disaster. A motor vehicle accident can change your entire future. Severe injuries can hinder you from executing the simplest of daily tasks and leave your loved ones with the burden of taking care of you around the clock.

Serious car accidents frequently encompass injuries to the limbs, spinal cord, and head that can have devastating long-term health consequences. In most cases, these injuries are not instantly identified and only manifest later after the crash. Agreeing to the settlement offered by the insurance company without a detailed assessment of your bodily injuries could leave you without the necessary resources to take care of your long-term injuries.

At The LA Personal Injury Law Firm, we’ll investigate every aspect of your car accident, including how and why it occurred, the parties at fault, your recovery options, and the extent of your injuries. We will earnestly fight to protect your rights and hold insurance companies to their promises.

Anybody who has been involved in a truck accident knows that it’s nothing like a common car accident. Trucks cannot maneuver nearly as well or stop as quickly as a car can. The sheer size and weight of some trucks significantly exceed what even some of the safest cars on the road can handle. For this reason, the damage that results from a truck accident is usually much greater than most other highway crashes. Moreover, despite the constant vigilance necessitated by California law as well as the safety standards imposed by shipping companies and manufacturers, hundreds of thousands of truck accidents are reported every year. The reason for this is poor judgment and carelessness.

Truck accident cases can be complicated and costly to prosecute. In a case, there may be several defendants liable and responsible for compensation, including drivers, trucking company, the truck and/or product manufacturers, distributors, and logistics companies. It can be complicated to sort out negligent defendants and hold them for your injuries and losses. This is one of the reasons why prompt investigation and liability review are critical in your case.

With the legal team at the LA Personal Injury Law Firm on your side, you don’t have to worry about resources and upfront costs. We have relationships with trucking experts as well as adequate financial resources to ensure your case will not be lost due to the lack of resources on the lawyer’s part.

Motorcycle riders get a bad rap in pop culture. They are usually portrayed as daredevils who cause trouble on the road as they dangerously weave in and out of traffic. Contrary to this popular belief, bikers are known to be some of the safest motorists on the road. However, even the most cautious and experienced motorcyclists are at risk for harm. Common causes of motorcycle crashes include unsafe change of lane, sudden stops, left turn accidents, and distracted, drowsy, drunk and drugged drivers.

The openness of a motorcycle provides limited protection to the rider, so motorcyclists rely on the rules of the road and personal awareness to protect themselves. However, when an accident occurs, the resulting injuries are usually severe and life-changing.

Defendants in lawsuits involving motorcycle crashes are usually quick to impose liability against the motorcyclist, and with how bikers are portrayed, juries and judges are likely to side with them initially. Prompt investigations by The LA Personal Injury Law Firm can turn a potentially losing motorcycle accident case into a victory. We work closely with accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, vocational experts, and economists to understand the cause of the accident, the liable parties, as well as the damages. 

Los Angeles is the second most populous city in the U.S., with a population that is close to 4 million, as well as an influx of tourists each year. This may explain why pedestrian accidents in this city happen much more frequently. Although walking is deemed a great way to save gas money, reduce carbon footprint, and stay healthy, thousands of pedestrians are injured and killed every year annually by distracted, intoxicated, aggressive, or otherwise negligent drivers. The injuries that result from these accidents are often catastrophic, life-changing, and fatal. The lack of protection renders pedestrians extremely susceptible to great harm.

Whether you were hit by a truck, car, bicycle, or motorcycle, you have the right to seek restitution from the person liable for your damages. This may not be as easy as it sounds because the defense in a pedestrian accident often argue that the casualty was crossing against the jaywalking, traffic light, or otherwise at fault. At The LA Personal Injury Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced at counteracting such arguments and majoring on the driver’s negligence. We will aggressively fight to obtain the medical care and restitution you deserve and give you time to heal, rest, and relax as we handle all the stressful tasks.

Cases involving wrongful death are incredibly challenging for the deceased’s family. In addition to dealing with the tragic loss of a loved one, you also have to bear the burden of knowing that the death of your loved one could have been avoided if the other party was paying more attention or being more careful at the time of the accident. At The LA Personal Injury Law Firm, we empathize with your family’s pain, and we can help to try and lessen the financial burdens. We understand that money can’t bring back your loved one, but holding the negligent party accountable can help bring some closure and help you address your family’s financial needs.

A wrongful death claim is typically handled by the civil court system. The surviving family members must show how the defendant is responsible for their loved one’s death to succeed in this type of case. A skilled wrongful death lawyer can help demonstrate whether the defendant acted intentionally, recklessly, or carelessly, how that behavior resulted in the victim’s death, and the effect it has had on the surviving family members.

Wrongful death cases in Los Angeles can be high-value cases and also tremendously multifaceted, given that they encompass complex areas of the law. A prompt and thorough investigation is necessary before evidence is destroyed, accident scenes are altered by further use, and witnesses disappear. Our experienced attorneys understand all the aspects of wrongful death claims and have the resources to prosecute these complex and expensive cases successfully.

Catastrophic injuries are different from other forms of personal injuries. While most personal injuries usually involve burns, cuts, and fractures that will heal and allow for a full recovery after some time, catastrophic injuries usually lead to permanent disfigurement or disability. Catastrophic injuries include amputations, injury to the brain, spinal cord injuries, loss of hearing, blindness, facial injuries, permanent damage to internal organs, multiple fractures, and injuries to nerves in the torso, shoulders, and arms (brachial plexus).

A catastrophic injury victim will need extensive emergency medical care and treatment, rehabilitative treatments and therapy, ongoing medical care, and often long-term and permanent support. An individual may never truly recover from the injuries, leaving them with lifelong financial and personal struggles.

Catastrophic injury cases can be devastating in many ways and are usually expensive to prosecute. A highly skilled and experienced catastrophic injury attorney can be able to handle these complex cases expertly and obtain compensation to bring respite from financial concerns. We work with economists, life-care planners, surgeons, vocational specialists, psychiatrists, and many other professionals to analyze your situation and determine what services our clients will need for the years ahead. Our goal is to help them thrive forever.
