Personal injury is the area of civil law concerned with the rights afforded to victims of harm caused by others who are duty-bound to behave in one way but instead cause injury as a result of their negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous choices. You don’t need to know for sure whether you have grounds for legal action – or even whether you want to pursue legal action – to schedule a no-cost, no-pressure consultation with our firm. All too often, injury victims refrain from seeking legal counsel because they are unsure of whether they have an actionable reason to speak with an attorney. However, the best way to know whether you have grounds to file a legal claim is to ask! In general, if you have been harmed and you believe that someone else may be to blame for that harm, it is a good idea to take advantage of the free consultation opportunity afforded by our firm.
All injury victims deserve to understand what their rights are under the law and how to exercise those rights, should they choose to. Our firm’s approach to representation is client-focused and case-specific. Unlike some other firms which are primarily concerned with serving as many clients as they possibly can, our firm is primarily concerned with serving every one of our clients to the best of our ability. If you have been harmed and one or more parties contributed to the circumstances that led to your injuries, you deserve knowledgeable legal guidance when exploring your legal options and quality representation when exercising your rights. It would be our firm’s honor to assist you with your legal needs at this time.
Brain injuries are caused by a variety of different influences. Infants may suffer from oxygen deprivation during the birthing process and develop cerebral palsy as a result. Individuals of all ages regularly sustain brain injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Over the last decade, American society has learned more and more about the ways in which contact sports contribute to sustaining repeated brain injuries over time. Regardless of how you sustained your brain injury, chances are high that another party or parties contributed to the causation of those injuries. If this is the case, regardless of whether you contributed to your harm in any way, you may be able to hold other responsible parties accountable for their negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous behavior.
Brain injuries do not heal quickly. Recovery from a brain injury often requires extensive follow-up care, rehabilitation, and lost work days. Before the costs associated with your injuries begin to become unmanageable, contact our firm to schedule a free consultation. You may be entitled to significant compensation that could help to ensure that your medical costs, lost wages, and other financial consequences caused by your injury are covered well into the future. If you are concerned that your head trauma is not allowing you to think clearly right now, please bring along a trusted loved one to take notes at the consultation so that you can make informed decisions about your legal situation together.
Moreno Valley is surrounded by some of the most scenic roads in California. It is therefore little wonder that people drive in and around Moreno Valley as an enjoyable activity in and of itself, not just to travel from here to there. Unfortunately, not all experiences on the freeways and surface streets in the Moreno Valley area are positive ones. If you have been recently injured in a car accident, you understand this reality all too well. Our firm has extensive experience dealing with car accidents, from the most straightforward fender-benders to catastrophic multi-vehicle pileups. We too understand just how devastating the aftermath of car accidents can be and what is at stake when an accident victim approaches us for guidance and assistance.
California is a comparative negligence state. This classification benefits accident victims because it means that even if you were partially at fault for the crash that caused your harm, if another’s negligence, recklessness, or intentionally dangerous behavior contributed to the cause of your crash, you may be able to hold those parties responsible for their actions. As a result, you’ll want to avoid making any assumptions about the strength or weakness of your case until you have spoken with us. You may be entitled to a great deal of compensation even if you wouldn’t ordinarily think that you would be.
Residents of long-term care facilities cannot always advocate on their own behalf in the event that they are experiencing abuse or neglect. Even if they are physically capable of doing so, many residents understandably fear that they will be retaliated against for speaking up, while others fear that their loved ones will worry about them if they express how they are being treated. If someone doesn’t speak up on their behalf, these abuse and neglect victims remain vulnerable to ongoing mistreatment.
If you suspect that your loved one who is living in a long-term care facility is being abused or neglected, please take advantage of a confidential, no-cost consultation with our firm today. Too often, loved ones of long-term facility residents fail to speak up because they don’t want to seem dramatic, get anyone in trouble, or cause their loved ones to be upset. However, if you don’t discuss your concerns with an experienced legal advocate who has extensive experience handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases, there is a risk that your loved one will continue to suffer harm that could otherwise have been prevented. Speaking with our team does not obligate you to take any action. However, doing so will empower you to ask questions and receive professional guidance that could potentially help you protect your loved one and others living within the facility.
Serious, catastrophic, and fatal truck accident victims and their families may be entitled to significant damage awards and insurance settlements. In the wake of a truck accident, you’ll want to act quickly to schedule a free consultation with our legal team to better ensure that your rights as an accident victim remain protected. Truck accident cases are notoriously complex. Acting quickly will allow our firm to preserve any time-sensitive evidence that may ultimately “make or break” your case.
Speaking with our team proactively will also allow you to avoid common missteps that can hinder our team’s ability to obtain the most successful outcome possible under the circumstances. It is therefore important, no matter what the circumstances are surrounding your truck accident, that (whenever possible) you seek experienced legal guidance before you:
Note that legal options are not just available for those who crash in multi-vehicle collisions involving trucks. Legal options may also be available for truck operators who suffer injuries as a result of single-vehicle crashes. For example, truck operators who were engaging in work-related activities when their crash occurred (and were neither unlawfully impaired nor engineering the accident for the purpose of obtaining compensation) may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim related to the harm that was caused by the crash. Once our team assesses your legal situation as a whole, we’ll be able to advise you of which opportunities for legal and/or financial recourse may be applicable to your circumstances specifically.
Injury victims who sustained their injuries while engaging in work-related activities often have access to additional opportunities to secure compensation than those who were not injured at work have access to. if you are classified as a part-time or full-time employee, you are likely eligible to file for workers’ compensation benefits related to your work injury or occupational illness. If you operate as an independent contractor, chances are that you can hold others responsible for a work-related injury via the personal injury process, provided that you were not solely at fault for the harm you’ve suffered. On rare occasions, workers eligible for workers’ compensation benefits can also hold third parties other than their employers accountable in personal injury suit while simultaneously filing for workers’ compensation benefits. When you attend your free, no-pressure consultation, we will advise you of your unique legal options accordingly.
California allows the estate of a deceased individual or that individual’s closely-related loved ones to file wrongful death and survivor actions against those responsible for that individual’s death under certain circumstances. Essentially, if your loved one would have had grounds to file a successful personal injury case on their own, had they not died as a result of their injuries, chances are good that their surviving loved ones have grounds to file a wrongful death suit.
It can be understandably difficult to harness the energy to attend a legal consultation while you are newly grieving. Unfortunately though, if you fail to explore your legal options within the relevant time period allowed by the statute of limitations that applies to your case, you may remain forever burdened by the financial consequences related to your loved one’s death. Justice demands that those responsible for your loved one’s death be held accountable for those costs. Additionally, you’ll need to act with relative speed to secure any workers’ compensation death benefits to which your family may be entitled. Depending on a few different factors, these benefit distributions can be financially significant.
As our firm has extensive experience representing the families of wrongful death victims, we understand how difficult it can be for surviving loved ones to explore their legal options in the wake of their loss. Know that if you choose to work with our team, we will treat you, your case, and the memory of your loved one with the respect, dedication, and compassion that they deserve.
The thought of meeting with an attorney to explore your legal options can be an intimidating one. Know, however, that this thought is also a brave one. All too often, injury victims refrain from learning about their legal rights and exercising those rights for any number of reasons. Those injury victims who choose to step forward and attempt to hold those responsible accountable for the harm that they have caused are brave. If you choose to become a client of our firm, we will do our best to ensure that your case is solid, that negotiations with insurance companies are approached with care, that your case receives the attention it deserves, and that you have fewer reasons to need to be brave regarding your legal situation moving forward. If you have not yet scheduled a consultation with our firm, please do so now at no cost and with no strings attached.
