The effects of a very serious injury go beyond physical pain. Victims of catastrophic injury in East Los Angeles may be temporarily or permanently disabled, which can wreak havoc on everything in their lives: jobs and marriage, plans for the future, even their independence. It’s no exaggeration to say that this type of loss is emotionally devastating as well as physically painful. And unfortunately, a catastrophic injury is almost always financially devastating as well. Even if you have medical insurance, the cost of surgeries, hospitalization and other costs can quickly skyrocket into the tens of thousands. And of course, victims may not be able to go back to work for months or may not have jobs waiting when they return — if they can work at all.

If you or a loved one was catastrophically injured by another person’s bad decisions or bad behavior, you have a legal right to hold that person responsible for the results. An experienced Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyer can help you make your case and collect the maximum possible financial compensation. That money can’t reverse a catastrophic injury, but it can help victims get the care they need and live with dignity and independence.

Our East Los Angeles catastrophic injury attorneys are renowned as some of the top trial attorneys in the United States. Our partners have extensive experience litigating over catastrophic injuries caused by airplane, helicopter and train crashes; serious auto accidents; unsafe pharmaceuticals; corporate fraud; and defective consumer products, especially defective auto parts. We have handed many complex national or international lawsuits, and have taken leadership roles in several national class actions and consolidated cases over aviation disasters and defective drugs.

Our Personal Injury Attorneys Handle Complex Cases Involving All Types of Injuries:

Each personal injury claim is unique. The cause of your accident and the types of injuries you sustained will determine the types of evidence our attorneys will use to prove your claim, as well as the legal strategies we will employ throughout the proceedings. With many years in legal practice, a vast network of expert witnesses, and a willingness to perform thorough investigations, our lawyers have what it takes to help you and your family fight for the compensation you deserve.

We handle cases involving all types of injuries including:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries (SCIs): An SCI is one of the most debilitating injuries a person can suffer. Beyond the emotional trauma endured by victims and their families, the lifetime cost of medical care can exceed $5 million.
  • Psychological Injuries: Unexpected accidents are a leading cause of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and other psychological conditions, which can be just as devastating as physical wounds.
  • Burn Injuries: A serious burn injury can result in permanent scarring and intense pain. Our lawyers will help you fight for the compensation you deserve while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
  • Internal Organ Damage: An impact accident or defective drug can cause life-threatening internal organ damage. Our attorneys have successfully helped clients who suffered internal organ damage recover the compensation needed to pay for medical care and lost income.
  • Broken & Fractured Bones: Broken and fractured bones are common in car wrecks, slips and falls, and a variety of other preventable accidents.
