While other firms just handle your bodily injury claim, we offer a complimentary full-service package where we will also handle your property damage for no fee – ever! This includes services like getting you top-dollar for a totaled vehicle, getting your deductible back and getting you reimbursement for a car rental, or loss of use from not being able to use your damaged vehicle. Dealing with the other driver’s insurance company is a daunting and frustrating task, and we want you to be able to focus on healing your injuries and pain, not to be mired in the insurance company run-around.

Bicycles are becoming a more and more popular method of getting around today’s congested cities. Unfortunately, drivers of motor vehicles aren’t always careful about respecting and protecting the bicyclists that they share the road with. When a bicyclist is hit by a car, the injuries can often be devastating, such as fractured wrist, broken collarbone and head injury. Establishing that the at-fault car or truck violated the biker’s right of way is the first step towards successfully making a claim for the injuries and pain and suffering stemming from the bicycle accident.

Anyone who has had food poisoning or suffered injury from a foreign object in their food knows how debilitating such afflictions can be. Often, these injuries are caused by negligence in the packaging or storing of food prior to sale to a consumer. These cases differ from traditional negligence cases in that most business entities in the chain (manufacturer, distributor and retailer) can be held jointly and strictly at-fault for the injuries.

Dogs are commonly known as “man’s best friend.” Most dogs are sweet and lovable animals, but sometimes situations can arise where a dog acts viciously and attacks a human or another dog, and the victim can make a claim for monetary compensation against the attacking dog’s owner. It is important to note that making a claim for compensation does not cause the attacking dog to be punished or put down. It is merely getting the attacking dog’s owner or their insurance company to give money to the victim for the harms suffered.

The City of Los Angeles is currently suffering from negative publicity from the manner in which it deals with the claims of people injured from trip and fall accidents on city sidewalks that have become upraised by tree roots. Many years ago, Los Angeles planted a number of different species of trees around the city. As those matured, particularly the Ficus trees, the roots began to push up the sidewalks. This created mislevelings, sometimes 6 inches or more, which caused people to trip, fall and become injured. We have represented many people that this has unfortunately happened to.
Recently, Los Angeles was sued under a claim that the condition of the sidewalks citywide was a violation of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act because the mislevelings prevented equal access and use of the sidewalk by disabled persons. As a result, Los Angeles is dedicating approximately $30 million a year for the next 30 years to sidewalk repair and increasing disabled accessibility. This is a victory for all Los Angelenos, and although it may take time, we should be looking at safer sidewalks and fewer hurt people in the years to come!
