Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer
in Los Angeles, CA?

Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney

After an accident, you may consider representing yourself. While possible, here are three key reasons why you should consider hiring an attorney.

1. You’re Outmatched

To recover after an accident, you will most likely be dealing with the negligent party’s insurance company. They have a team of attorneys and insurance adjusters trained to minimize or deny your compensation.

In short, the other side will have an attorney and you won’t. By having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side you level the playing field.

2. You’re Too Close To The Accident

After an accident, you may be dealing with physical and emotional injuries as well as financial stress. This may make it difficult for you to remain objective throughout the negotiation process with the negligent party.

Having an attorney allows you to focus on recovery while your legal counsel fights on your behalf.

3.  You May Not Understand the Extent of Your Injuries

Self-represented parties often accept a lower settlement than they deserved because they didn’t understand the seriousness of their injuries.

Citywide Law Group has a team of experts to help you understand the long-term consequences of your injuries. Armed with this knowledge allows us to demand and attempt to collect enough money to accurately compensate you for your damages.

Our Client Reviews

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

Accidentes AutoTo recover in a personal injury matter, you or a loved one must have been injured either physically or emotionally.

For example, if you were hurt in a car accident, then you most likely have grounds for recovery. This assumes you were not at fault for the accident. But if you or a loved one were not injured in the accident, then you would not pursue a personal injury claim solely for damage to your vehicle.

How Much Can You Get For Your Injuries?

The amount of compensation you can get after an accident will depend on several factors, including:

  • the extent of your injuries,
  • whether your injuries prevent you from working, and
  • the negligent party’s ability to pay

Another key factor is the quality of your legal representation. People often accept lower settlements without understanding the full extent of their injuries. Speak with a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at Citywide Law Group today so we can provide you with a more accurate estimate of how much you can expect to receive.

What If You Were Partly At Fault?

California follows the comparative fault rule.

This means that the court will reduce your recovery by the amount it determines you were responsible for the accident.

For example, if you were in a car crash and you’re found to be 30% at-fault, then your compensation will be reduced by 30%. Even if you bear some of the blame, you can still collect for damages.

How Long Do You Have To File a Personal Injury Claim?

In general, you only have two-years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury claim. While exceptions exist, the 2-year rule covers most cases.

It may take time for your attorney to investigate your claim and get the necessary evidence to move forward. So, you should immediately speak with an attorney after an accident. 

Have You Already Accepted a Settlement Offer?

People often accept a settlement offer, only to later discover they accepted an amount far lower than the value of their claim.

Before settling, speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about your case. Once you accept an offer, you’re most likely barred from pursuing any further legal action against the negligent party.

Citywide Law Group created an overview of the personal injury process for your convenience.

Have You Been Injured in a Car Accident?

Driving is a fact of life in Los Angeles. Every day hundreds of people are either injured or killed in a car accident. After an accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries and damage to your car. Our injury lawyers have secured million dollar settlements for our clients involved in motor vehicle collisions.

Bicycle Accidents

Given the great weather, it’s no surprise that Los Angeles has a large bicycle riding population. Unfortunately, this also leads to bicycle accidents. According to the most recent data, Los Angeles had 2,043 bicycle accidents in just one year.

These wrecks often cause serious injuries, like broken bones, neck and spine injuries, severe blood loss, and head injuries. Nearly all civil cases settle out of court. Most victims do not even need to go to trial to obtain maximum compensation for their damages.

To reduce or deny compensation, the insurance companies may argue that you were partly responsible. A Los Angeles injury attorney at Citywide Law Group can help you recover damages after your bicycle accident. Additionally, we have a team of medical experts to fully assess your injuries. This results in us being able to better negotiate with the driver’s insurance company more effectively on your behalf.

Brain Injuries

Each year, over 1.3 million people are rushed to hospital emergency rooms because of traumatic brain injuries. Victims often do not seek immediate treatment because the brain disguises its injuries so well and these wounds are sometimes misdiagnosed. Some common causes include:

  • Car Crashes account for approximately 20% of all TBI’s. This number includes pedestrian, motorcyclists, and bicyclists struck by motor vehicles.
  • Slip and falls account for a whopping 35% of traumatic brain injuries, with the elderly and children affected disproportionately. 
  • Assault victims account for 15% of TBI’s throughout the United States.

TBIs are among the most traumatic kinds of personal injuries. In most cases, dead brain cells do not regenerate and the injuries are permanent.

To reduce the symptoms and train healthy brain regions to assume the lost functions, victims need aggressive medical treatment followed by extensive, long-term physical therapy. 

Despite all these efforts, many victims are still sensory or mobility-impaired. They may require lifelong care along with expensive medical devices.

Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers have experience handling brain injury cases. We will help you recover for your injuries. 

Car Accidents

Los Angeles is known as one of the car capitals of the world. With the amount of drivers on the road every day, the number of annual car accidents should come as no surprise. According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, there were 6,476 motor vehicle traffic injuries in 2013, and 604 fatal injuries, 

Immediately following an auto accident, you may be confused and frightened. Despite the initial shock, this is a critical time to collect evidence if you’re able to. Some of the key information you can collect includes:

  • Witness Names: If possible, try to get the names and contact information of anyone who saw the accident. Given your proximity to the crash, it’s possible that your own recollection may be faulty. As such, it’s helpful to get collaborating eyewitness reports.
  • Photos and Video: Another important step is to take photos and videos of the aftermath. This includes all vehicles involved, pictures of the scene, and license plates. The more pictures you have, the more detail your attorney will then have to recreate the scene.

In the event of a car crash, there are several parties you could hold liable for your injuries. Some of the include:

  • Negligent Drivers: The most obvious culprit is the other driver(s) involved in the accident. Establishing negligence may be straightforward, such as a rear-end collision. It could also be more complicated depending on the circumstances. Regardless, this is usually the first place we start when determining who to hold liable.
  • Government Agencies: Another avenue for recovery involves the local municipality. If the accident was the result of faulty roads, unkept street signs, or something else the responsibility of a government agency, we can pursue a claim against them for damages.
  • Vehicle Manufacturer: There is a chance that the accident was caused by a vehicle defect. In this event, we would seek compensation from the car maker for your damages.

Damages in car crash cases include compensation for:

  • Medical bills,
  • Other economic losses, and
  • Emotional distress and other noneconomic losses.

Dog Bites

When it comes to dog bites, California is a strict liability State. That’s good news for dog bite victims.

The Golden State leads the nation in both the number of dog bite claims and the value of these claims. In 2015, the average California dog bite victim received nearly $45,000 in compensatory damages alone. That same year, over 80,000 people received emergency medical treatment for serious injuries like:

  • Broken Bones: The knockdown alone normally causes broken bones especially among child victims and the elderly, because the attacking animal often substantially outweighs the victim and/or leaps into the air.
  • Head Injuries: Either because of the initial knockdown or subsequent bite wounds, many victims suffer severe head trauma.
  • Serious Lacerations.

Victims not only suffer physical injuries but psychological ones as well. Under California law, all these injuries are compensable.

As mentioned, California is a strict liability state. Therefore, dog owners or custodians are automatically liable for the damages. This applies even if they did not know that the animal was vicious or even if the animal had never attacked anyone previously.

While many people shake off a dog bite as “no big deal,” the injuries can have life-long consequences. After a dog bite, let our experts examine you. This will give you an accurate assessment of your injuries. Once you know the extent of your damages, we can hold the dog owner responsible.

Motorcycle Accidents

Great weather and high gas prices has resulted in more people opting to ride motorcycles in Los Angeles. In fact, according to the Los Angeles Times, motorcycle sales were up 8.2% in first quarter of 2015. Unfortunately, with more motorcycle riders comes the possibility of more accidents. 

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, motorcycle fatalities have remained high since 2014. While motorcycles account for only 3 percent of the vehicles on the road, they account for 14 percent of all motor vehicle-related deaths.

If you have been injured in an accident, our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers are available to meet with you to discuss your case. 

Whether your accident was the result of:

  • A negligent driver, 
  • Poor roadways, or
  • A manufacturer defect

we will seek to maximize your compensation from any responsible party.

Pedestrian Accidents

In 2013, Los Angeles County saw over 4,721 pedestrian injuries and 211 pedestrian fatalities as a result of motor vehicle accidents. According to the L.A. Times, although pedestrian were involved in 10% of traffic accidents between 2002 – 2013, they represented approximately 35% of all fatalities

Distracted driving accounts for the increase in accidents. Speed, on the other hand, accounts for the severity of these accidents. According to the AAA, the serious injury rate in pedestrian-auto crashes is less than 30 percent if the vehicle is moving less than 30mph. But the rate soars to 90 percent if the vehicle is traveling greater than 45mph. Since most pedestrian accidents occur in non-intersection areas, the negligent drivers are often traveling at full speed at impact.

Due to the severity of the injuries, pedestrians are often entitled to significant compensation. To ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries, speaking with a Los Angeles pedestrian accident attorney should be a top priority.

Our injury lawyers understand how to assess your damages and will negotiate on your behalf. Find out more by scheduling an appointment today.

Truck Accidents

In 2012, there were over 244 fatal semi-truck accidents in California. Many of these accidents occurred in Southern California. Due to the immense size of big-rig trucks, wrongful death and other catastrophic injuries are the rule as opposed to the exception. 

After a truck accident, an experienced attorney can help you establish liability. We can help you recover from all negligent parties including:

  • Truck Driver,
  • Trucking Company,
  • Manufacturer, and
  • Truck Maintenance Company.

Trucking accidents often result from a variety of factors including:

  • Drug Use: Drivers sometimes take speed or other stimulants to keep driving, creating a dangerous situation.
  • Fatigue: Tight deadlines often force drivers to continue driving if tired. This can lead to a dangerous situation.
  • Speeding: Due to their size, big rigs cannot stop quickly. This is especially true if the driver is speeding. We will investigate to determine if speed played a role in your accident.
  • Improper Maintenance: This could have played a role in your accident. If so, the manufacturer may also be liable for your damages.

After an accident, trucking companies will use their specialized knowledge to fight liability. Let our personal injury lawyers fight on your behalf to make sure you get the money you deserve.

Wrongful Death

We know that money can never replace a lost one. But the money can ease the financial burden created by the loss. If you’ve lost a loved one due to someone’s negligence, then call us to discuss your case.

A wrongful death suit allows the surviving family to recover for economic losses. For example, the deceased may have been the primary wage earner. In that case, you may be able to make a claim for the money they would have earned.

You can also pursue a loss of consortium claim, which compensates you for the loss of companionship.

The following people may bring a wrongful death claim:

  • Spouses,
  • Life Partners and Putative Spouses,
  • Minor children, and
  • Parents of an adult child (if there are no survivors).

Wrongful death cases often involve two complex issues. First, you must determine who is liable for the fatal accident. Second, and more difficult, you must accurately assess damages. An accident attorney at Citywide Law Group will meet with you to discuss your options.
