Some injury cases can be settled quickly, once all the damages suffered have been identified and the claim filed on behalf of the injured victim. Others, such as those involving catastrophic injuries, may take more time, as the compensation sought will be very high value, as the injured will require a lifetime of medical care and treatment. Their future has been forever altered, such as cases of traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, severe burns, amputations or other devastating injury cases. When a family has lost a loved one who did not survive the incident, they have the right to file a wrongful death claim.

Dangerous Drugs / Defective Products
In a situation where a patient or consumer is injured by a dangerous drug or defective product, our firm may be able to offer invaluable legal counsel to determine how to hold the pharmaceutical company, manufacturer or other responsible party or parties accountable. Defective product cases are handled on a strict liability basis in California, and this means that the manufacturer may be liable regardless of specific intent or negligence in producing the defective product. The injured party will still need to prove, however, that the product was defective and that it caused them some type of quantifiable injury. Our firm handles these and drug injury cases with professionalism and the aggressive approach that is necessary when going up against large corporations such as pharmaceutical giants or manufacturing companies. Our Los Angeles firm handles personal injury cases related to prescription drugs, over-the-counter medication, home appliances, children's toys, automobile parts, medical devices, power tools and more.
