Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have grounds for a claim or lawsuit?
After an accident, you may wonder whether you have grounds for a lawsuit and what person can be held responsible for the injuries you or a loved one have sustained. The general principle of personal injury law in Los Angeles is that the incident must have stemmed from negligence, intentional wrongdoing, or strict liability. In these cases, the defendant (the person responsible for your injuries) must have acted or failed to act and this caused your injuries. The actions may have been intentional, as in the case of an assault, or unintentional, as in most motor vehicle accidents.
What are the statutes of limitations in California?
Simply speaking, the statute of limitations (SOL) is the given timeline that you have following an injury; it is a window of opportunity that you have to file a claim. In California, general personal injury and negligence claims have a SOL of two years. This involves the Discovery Rule, however, which means that the SOL does not apply until the injury or illness has been discovered or would have reasonably discovered. There is a one year SOL for cases of wrongful death, although this does not apply to cases involving asbestos or medical malpractice. For medical malpractice, it is three years.
What is my case worth?
No two cases are exactly the same, and as such it may be difficult to determine exactly what your injury claim should be worth. However, a lawyer experienced with these matters can work with experts in medicine and economics to establish what your case should be worth – based upon what amount of compensation will best help you rebuild your life as much as possible.
What types of claims may qualify under personal injury law?
Personal injury law covers a broad range of accidents and injuries, all related to or stemming from negligent or intentional conduct or strict liability. All types of auto accidents are covered under personal injury law and are the most common grounds for these types of cases. Additional cases may involve medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, defective products as well as toxic exposure and poisoning.
Who can be held responsible for my injuries?
Depending on the case, whatever party or parties who caused your injuries may be held responsible. In an auto accident, this may be the driver of the other car. In a case involving medical malpractice, this may be the doctor that made a mistake or acted carelessly in providing your medical care. If you were injured by a defective product or a defective drug, the manufacturer may be held liable. By investigating your particular incident and what led to your injuries, an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer can determine against what party you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit.

Traumatic Brain Injuries
When your head strikes a steering wheel, dashboard or another type of object, you likely will suffer a traumatic brain injury. The sudden and often violent impact of these and other objects with your head can lead to concussions and perhaps even internal injuries. Leaving these harms unattended can result in more serious health problems. You may also suffer memory or behavioral impairment as the result of a traumatic brain injury.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Strains, sprains and bruises do not sound as dramatic or traumatic as concussions or fractures. However, left untreated, soft tissue injuries create long-term pain and restriction of your movements. Within soft tissue injuries lie damages to ligaments, the skin, muscles in tendons. These kinds of injuries can be the result of falls, car crashes and other acts of negligence.
Spinal Cord Injuries
