      Seeking a Personal Injury Lawyer for an
      Accident You Didn't Cause?

      When a loved one gets harmed in an accident, you and your family need to hire the best personal injury lawyers money can buy.

      An injury lawyer practices law on behalf of tort victims. Other names used over the years include attorney, solicitor, advocate, barrister, counselor, ambulance chaser and chartered legal executive. The art of "lawyering" includes the practical application of abstract legal theories. These specialized lawyers will have above average knowledge to solve the specific problems of accident victims. Their job is to advance the interests of plaintiffs who retain them with honor and zeal. The decision to hire a lawyer you can trust will be one of the most important ones a person can make. Protecting the validity of your claim starts by retaining counsel.

      After all something like a bad car, truck, bus or motorcycle accident usually causes great upheaval in our day to day lives. For example, spinal cord injuries can permanently or partially immobilize you for life. Fiscal stress alone can make you nervous and depressed. It could cause you sadness and to break down emotionally. In fact, right after a bad crash or slip and fall, for example, expect a time-consuming trip to the hospital. Sometimes victims need an MRI, CT scan or X Rays. Experts like a rheumatologist may be called into play. Sometimes we use our vacation pay just to attend physical therapy. Other times we cannot work at all and get fired after missing too much work.

      Choosing top-notch accident-related personal injury attorney helps mitigate the harm caused by the damages from your injury. After all, your terrible mishap was unanticipated. Handling the fallout yourself is not justice. Most of all, this is not something victims should have to be prepared for. This whole process is new to you. And this is why you should secure superb legal assistance at once. Because of this, you will be on your way to a full recovery of your health while we are fighting and negotiating for you.

      What Type of Injuries Do We Handle?
      Accident You Didn't Cause?

      From start to finish, our exceptional Los Angeles injury attorneys handle all elements of most catastrophic injuries involving many types of accidents. Below are some of the commonplace negligence cases we take.

      Automobile Accidents: The history of Southern California road and freeway traffic is filled with news of major tragedies. Streets and garages remain filled with varying types of motor vehicles at any given moment. Car drivers and people on foot often suffer severely after becoming involved in a terrible collision. Drunk driving and other distractions are a major cause of these mishaps. Irrespective of what caused your wreck, or who the police say was at fault  – we assist car accident victims with zeal. Vehicular cases we take include Truck AccidentsBicycle AccidentsUber and Lyft AccidentsBus Accidents, Pedestrian Accidents and more.

      So for example, if you were a car passenger, riding a Segway, a bicycle, walking on a beach bike path or just crossing the street - if you got struck, we could help. Whether another vehicle like a big rig truck or negligent driver of a tour bus crashed into you, our goal remains the same. Our 100% laser focus is on helping you prove liability and getting you the proper medical care you deserve. Most of all, we battle to get you the highest favorable results. We leave no stone unturned in order to discover the winning evidence. So call us for a free consultation and discuss your options!

      Motorcycle Accidents: Cars navigating left-hand turns often impact with street motorcyclists. Or for example, these bikers will get sideswiped while navigating a safe lane change. Of particular concern, motorcycles and scooters are no match for heavy, fast-moving vehicles. And even with loud pipes and safety gear, these victims can suffer immense personal injuries or even death. Many poorly trained lawyers, law enforcement officers, and jurors often assume the biker was at fault. As a matter of fact, many dissuaded riders don’t even bother looking to hire an accident law firm in some cases. But we recommend you speak to a seasoned injury lawyer no matter what your detractors say. After all, you could have an addiction to painkillers, or even be collecting unemployment. This is unfair. We won't stand for it. Because even if you were partially at fault for your collision, you might still be entitled to real money for your crash! So why not put our over 30 years combined experience to work for you? Partner up today with old school veterans who also ride and get strength by your side.

      Construction Accidents: Unsafe working conditions are quite common when structures are being built. Your risk of falling in a trench or an electrocution burn injury is very high on a job site. Also, workers can easily step on a rusty nail, inhale dangerous chemicals, or lose a finger or body part due to a defective product, or improperly used machinery. Getting help from one of our staff members is just a toll-free phone call away at (888) 400-9721. 

      Slip, Trip and Fall/Falling Objects: If you were hit by a falling object, such as overhead luggage on a bus or airplane, you understand how devastating a head or shoulder injury can be. But skull fractures and brain injuries are not exclusive to things hitting you in the head. For example, when you slip and fall on another person's property, you may bang your head and get knocked unconscious. Or you could suffer a devastating spinal cord injury. If so, you have a potential negligence case. Business and landowners owe a duty to keep their premises safe for loiterers and invited guests alike. So what happens if you get hurt due to unsafe property conditions such as wet, slippery, or cracked flooring? For starters, you call ELFPI – then we possibly can help develop a premise liability case for you. Our attorneys can investigate the facts to determine if the landlord or business maintained safe premises. We’ll conduct an investigation into the property. And if the property manager failed to keep the premises safe for the conditions, we can help you get money. After all, we are experts in the vast field of PI law.

      Dog Bites: Irresponsible or not; dog owners are strictly liable to bite, scratch and attack victims hurt by dogs. And this remains true whether it happened at a private or public place. So intentional injury or not, you or your family could collect compensation for past, present, and future medical expenses. Additionally, parents and children alike are entitled to receive coverage for pain and suffering. And you could also get paid for loss of earning power, emotional distress and even property damage expenses you incurred. In extreme cases, dogs kill. When that happens, the family is entitled to wrongful death damages. So your family could receive amounts to cover your loss of income and loss of companionship. In any event, our service includes a detailed discussion about what you potentially deserve and how we will fight to get you what you need to survive.

      Cruise Ship Accidents: Our superb lawyers have assisted cruise passengers and employees across the United States and abroad. In addition to medical malpractice by a ship's doctor, food contamination, sexual assault and rape are common on cruise lines. In fact, cruise ship companies have a sordid past for covering up crimes of passengers and employees while aboard. Their foreign corporate executives are famous for hiding behind their infamous passage contracts. Also, most foreign flagged ships like this are self-insured. So they are not bound by the Unfair Claims laws that most auto liability cases are. Simply speaking, these are not easy cases to litigate. Hiring a lawyer may seem simple. But many lawyers and passengers alike file their case in the wrong court or assume that the normal statute of limitations applies. But this is false. You simply cannot delay in seeking personal injury help for your maritime claims. And you stumbled upon this site for a reason. No matter what, it's better to hire ELFPI now than suing your previous lawyer later for legal malpractice.

      Why You Need Injury Attorneys

       

      The most important step you can take after suffering a personal injury is hiring a trustworthy, aggressive attorney - someone experienced in personal injury law. It's a well-known fact that represented accident victims get more compensation and get their rights protected. Most of all, insurance adjusters are not reasonable and they are not your friend. Almost always, insurers will place your case in the minor injury category. And insurance companies will use bully tactics rob you blind if you give them a chance. Mostly, their goal is increasing the bottom line for their shareholders.  So don't be shocked when they request a discount or deny your valid claim outright. And don't think you will be successful after being led on for years. You simply won’t receive the maximum settlement for your case unless and until you have received responsible advice. 

      And if you suffered an injury or wrongful death due to the fault of someone else, you deserve justice. No matter what, the multi-million dollar professional at ELFPI will fight for you and your family's rights. But time is of the essence during these stressful times. The longer you wait to act, the less valuable your legal case becomes. Put your troubles to rest. You can do this by letting us handle all aspects of your case. We'll handle your legal paperwork. Also, we'll discuss the range of options available to you as an accident victim. Plus, we'll deal with the snobby insurers and size up the pernicious defendants from start to finish. 

      After that, if the insurance company refuses to take you and you claim seriously, don't accept it! We are willing to go to court for you and advance your case to a jury. You can trust our strength and resolve. Our case consultations are cost-free. And you don't pay unless we win. We are in this for the long term. No matter what, we will strive hard to get you compensated. And you can take that promise to the bank.

      More Personal Injury FAQs

      What is a Personal Injury?

      One of the most frequently asked questions people have is “What is a Personal Injury?” A personal injury is an injury to an individual’s person caused by another party. Personal injury law is the common term used by people who bring insurance or court claims to recover money for their injuries.

      Personal injury lawyers are the state bar members who will usually file a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of a plaintiff such as you. Is this making sense so far? (Read More.)

      How Much is Your Injury Worth?

      How to tally the value of your personal injury case depends on many variables and a whole host of related costs and fees. It remains impossible to predict case values accurately.

      First, the dollar amount of bills, therapy, and lost work are a major and critical component. Intangibles like mental suffering and physical pain must be creatively calculated. Usually, experts are required. Most lawyers will advance these costs. But the victim will pay it back out of the settlement.

      Although there is no magical personal injury case value calculator, the court, adjuster or jury will look at:

      • All of the losses and how they are categorized
      • The total rehabilitation and medical expenses connected with your injuries
      • Past, present and future losses of income related to your personal injuries
      • Your life-altering disabilities caused by or related to your accidental injuries
      • Any property damage related losses or damages
      • Any pain and suffering you may have experienced from your injuries

      By using this information, our accident lawyers will determine the likely probability of the recoverable dollar amounts of damages for your injury case. So obviously, the lawyers you retain will play a major role in the damages recovered.

      What is No Win No Contingency Fee?

      Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers offer strength by your side. So we are in this for the long haul. We seek justice, do or die. And as a show of good faith, we never charge you upfront fees. But wait, there's more. As discussed, we don't get paid till we win your case. You heard right! We don't get paid unless we win.   (Explained in detail here).

       

      Can You Get Paid If You Were At Fault?

      Yes, you can! Sometimes two or more acts or failures to act combine in an accident. In some states, unless the defendant had the last clear chance to avoid the wreck, the plaintiff's case is dismissed. But in California, we use the pure comparative negligence rules discussed more here.

      So here, your award is simply reduced based upon your percentage of fault.

      What Makes Ehline Different?

      One of the most frequently asked questions we get about our military veteran run law firm is "what makes Ehline Law different?" Our online reviews and winning record verify our relentlessness and standing in the local legal and consumer community. (Read More.)

      What are the Top 7 Reasons to Hire ELFPI?

      The nagging question for many personal injury victims, is “how do I know who to hire for my accident insurance or court claims?” Because of this, we have identified some top qualities to look out for in a PI lawyer or firm below:

      Quick Index: 

      1. No Recovery No Fee
      2. Cutting Red tape
      3. Hiring Investigators and Experts
      4. Objectivity
      5. Veteran Experience
      6. ADR
      7. Technology

      (Read about the Top 7 Reasons to Hire ELFPI.)

      How Long Does it Take to Settle Your Personal Injury Case?

      There is not a set litmus test for how long it takes injury cases to resolve. Like human beings, each case is unique. So from filing suit, to settlement or verdict, it remains different in every case. In fact, some cases settle fast, while others stretch out for many months or years. (Read More Here.)

       

      Once Your Accident Case Settles, When Do You Get Paid?

      Invariably, injury victims have one question that arises above all others.

      The resounding question is:

      • "How long after the settlement will it take to get me paid?"

      Typically, the profit-driven insurance company has to order a draft payment from its home office. This does not happen overnight. (Read more about length of time to payment here.)

      What is a Lawsuit?

      A lawsuit is usually a formal written complaint to to court that generally alleges the negligence and other causes of action. It is filed with the court and served on each defendant. Usually a process server will serve it on behalf of the plaintiff. (Read More.)

      How Long Do You Wait To File The Lawsuit?

      This is governed by statute or contract law. As discussed, there is a two year statute of limitations for most personal injury cases in California. But that doesn't mean we wait.

      However, in cases where you sue the government or a cruise ship company, things are different and you must file a claim right away. This is why you must speak to a lawyer as soon as possible! (Read More.)

       

      What is Civil Discovery?

      After filing suit, there will be an initial case management conference (CMC), and a lengthy period for civil discovery. This means both sides get to ask eachother written questions and demand documents and things. (Read More.)
