Common Personal Injury Cases

Perhaps this is the first time you have sought legal advice for a situation. It’s normal to have questions and feel uncertain about your claim. You are certainly not alone, as there are many types of personal injury cases, some more common than others. At Hodes Milman, LLP Law Firm, we serve the Southern California and Phoenix, AZ areas for the following types of personal injury claims:

Brain Injury | Types and Their Causes

Brain injuries range in severity and can have devastating, long-term effects. Often expensive and complex, a brain injury can include anything from a concussion to a skull fracture and have symptoms such as vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, blurred vision and loss of consciousness. If you have suffered a head injury of any kind, you should seek medical attention immediately as well as legal guidance.

Burn Injury Law Firm

Burn injuries can be caused by thermal, electrical or chemical factors and be as mild as a first degree or as serious as a fourth degree. The American Burn Association reports that approximately 450,000 patients are seen each year at hospitals for burns. When a burn has gone untreated, the wound can worsen and create more complications.

Premises Liability Law

When a person is injured from an unsafe or defective condition on another’s property, “premises liability” occurs. For these types of cases, the property owner’s negligence must be proven as the cause for the injury.

Law about Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse occurs when any form of non-consensual or unwanted sexual conduct takes place. Both men and women can be subject to this kind of injury, and it includes acts such as derogatory name calling, purposely causing unwanted pain during sex, sexual threats and rape.

Slip and Fall |  Attorneys in Orange County

The fact is, most slip and fall incidents are preventable, but the owner’s failure to appreciate and remedy the risk must be proven. Ice, slick floors and poorly designed walkways and parking lots are all common places for slip and fall incidents. While these incidents often seem non-severe, the impact of the head, or a joint such as the elbow or knee can have lasting effects.

Spinal Cord Injuries Compensation

Spinal cord injuries can also yield devastating outcomes, with some of the most serious cases leaving the victim paralyzed. Often the result of car accidents, spinal cord injuries can also come from slips and falls, violence or recreational activity such as sports. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, more than 17,000 people suffer from spinal cord injuries every year.

Wrongful Death

When a person dies because of another’s negligence or misconduct, a “wrongful death” claim may be pursued. A wrongful death can result from medical malpractice, a car accident or criminal behavior. For these cases, a death must occur and it must be proven that it was a direct result of someone’s negligence or intent to cause harm.

If you’ve been injured and you’re thinking about seeking legal assistance, it’s important to choose the right attorney for your case. You will want to set up a consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer, not simply a general practice lawyer. Hiring a skillful advocate with a high success rate can significantly impact the outcome of your case.

Personal Injury FAQ’s

How much time do I have to file a claim?

By law, you only have a certain amount of time after you’ve been injured to try and seek compensation for any damages, including lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering. In California, this is typically limited to two years from the date of the incident, and in Arizona, it is two years from the date of the incident or the date of discovery of the injury. However it is best to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible for an accurate estimate regarding your statute of limitations.

How much compensation will I receive?

Many of our settlements and verdicts range in the several hundred thousand to millions of dollars. The value of your case can be moved by several factors, such as the extent of injury, medical expenses (both long and short term) and your current and future conditions. We can, however, give you a basic assessment of your claim for compensation based on details about your case and the outcome of other similar cases. While there is no way to guarantee an amount for compensation, we would not accept your case if we didn’t feel it could be successful in the first place.

Why should I hire a personal injury attorney?

Put simply, an experienced personal injury attorney can get you a much higher recovery amount than you could on your own. The law surrounding personal injury is complex and the processes can be time-consuming. Insurance companies will defend their case and are known to recruit and hire talented lawyers to do so. Having an advocate on your side to skillfully walk you through the legal process, answer your questions and speak to your highest concerns will save you valuable time for focusing on your health, your family, and getting your life back in order.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

Our law firm works on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that if we do not win your case, you don’t owe us a nickel. There are no upfront fees or costs, and we cover the bill for all necessary expenses to your case. You are protected from paying us back for anything if your case does not end successfully. This affords our clients the clear conscience and comfort they need and deserve during a challenging time in their lives.
