Personal Injury Claims
In California, a personal injury claim may exist if a person has suffered harm due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful acts of another. Personal injury claims commonly arise out of automobile accidents, trucking and commercial vehicle accidents, and pedestrian, bicycle, and rollerblade accidents. Injuries also may occur at work; however, these claims are likely covered by California’s workers’ compensation system. Please see our workers’ compensation page for more information about these claims. No matter how or where you were injured, our goal is to help you receive proper compensation.

Personal injury victims may recover for both economic and non-economic damages they have suffered. Economic damages include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, and any other monetary expenses the person incurred because of the injury. Non-economic damages include recovery for pain and suffering and emotional distress.

Catastrophic Injuries

Sometimes personal injury claims involve injuries that are serious and life altering. These cases can be extremely complex and require an attorney with a thorough understanding of the underlying medical and legal issues involved. Our attorneys are experienced with handling personal injury claims involving these and other serious injuries:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury - Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when a sudden physical impact or shaking damages the brain. TBIs range from minor concussions to hemorrhages to injuries causing permanent vegetative state or coma. Common causes of TBI include vehicle accidents, falls, and sports injuries.
  • Spinal Cord Injury - Spinal cord injury (SCI) can occur when traumatic force tears or bruises the spinal cord. Severe SCIs result in loss of feeling and functionality of the limbs, and in some cases, acute respiratory and breathing problems. The most serious SCIs may lead to paralysis. SCIs often require constant care and treatment, which many families cannot afford; our attorneys can help you obtain legal damages to pay for these costs.
  • Severe Burns - Severe burns are among the most painful and debilitating injuries that a person can sustain. Treatment for severe burns often involves extended hospital stays, rehabilitation, and reconstructive surgery. If you or a loved one has suffered severe burns as the result of another's negligence or wrongful act, we will work with you to evaluate your case, bringing in experts if necessary who can accurately assess your current and future amages.
