Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer
Helping Injury Victims in L.A. County
Have you or a loved one been injured due to the carelessness of others? Injuries from accidents, abuse, products, and dog bites can have long-lasting repercussions, many of which include disabling injuries. Los Angeles has a high rate of civil cases brought to court as a result of devastating accidents, many of which are resolved beforehand if the plaintiff chooses an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at the Johnson Attorneys Group.
While personal injury actions can be given a bad reputation due to the prevalence of media attention on abuse of the civil litigation system, you should not be nervous or ashamed to bring a lawsuit if you were injured. You should not be forced to go through life suffering with injuries which were the fault of another person without adequate compensation. Therefore, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney after your accident as soon as you are able. The limitations period to bring an accident case begins on the day of the accident and extends two years. While this period may be extended in a small number of cases, it is better to begin the first steps of bringing your lawsuit while the events are still fresh in your mind and details will be easier to recall.
Personal Injury Actions
Personal injury actions include a wide variety of accidents, but the more common ones include:
- Car and Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Nursing Home Abuse
- Product Liability
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Wrongful Death
Each personal injury action is unique and requires research into your case by a dedicated and experienced personal injury attorney. While the media portrays each slip and fall case to be the same as the next, our attorneys understand that personal injury actions are different and each require a different approach and strategy.
Personal Injury Damages
The main goal in each personal injury action is to ensure the client receives the compensation they deserve for their injuries. Damages in personal injury actions include:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitative treatment
- Lost wages
- Future earnings
- Mental anguish
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of consortium (for your family members or spouse)
Personal injury actions are about attempting to make you whole again and move on from a devastating action. They are about receiving justice for your injuries and putting you into the position you were in before the accident. Unfortunately, for many individuals, it is not feasible for them to get back to the way they were before the accident due to the extent of their injuries. However, even in this case, we can ensure you receive the full amount of compensation you deserve to be able to receive current and future medical care for your injuries, as well as prepare for loss of income.
