As the nation’s second-largest city, Los Angeles is full of things to do. You can stroll the infamous Rodeo Drive or pay your respects to the numerous celebrities and stars along the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Residents love to spend hot summer days at Zuma Beach, while the relatively warm winters are great for hiking in Runyon Canyon Park.
No one can deny that Los Angeles offers tourists and long-time residents many options, but it is also a magnet for all types of accidents. Traffic frequently jams the numerous interstates, and busy shopping centers are prime locations for slips and falls.
If you’ve sustained injuries in an accident in Los Angeles, you’ll need help recovering the money you need to finance your medical costs and lost wages. Personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles can assist you with your claim. Contact Morgan & Morgan to schedule your free consultation today.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer
Few people believe they’ll ever need the assistance of a personal injury lawyer. They think their insurance provider will immediately cover their costs if they are in a severe accident.
While insurance coverage is necessary, providers aren’t always willing to give injury victims fair compensation. They may argue that you are partially at fault for the accident or that your coverage doesn’t cover your losses.
Disputes with an insurance provider can be frustrating and produce minimal results. Rather than relying on the insurance company to step up in your time of need, hiring a personal injury attorney can force them to pay you what you are due.
Personal injury lawyers are familiar with laws and regulations. They are well-versed in insurance providers' and defendants' tactics to deflect blame and avoid paying fair financial settlements.
When you hire personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles, you have a team on your side who will fight to obtain adequate compensation for your losses. A personal injury lawyer will:
Establish the Circumstances of Your Case
The first job of a personal injury lawyer is to understand what caused your accident. They’ll speak with you to get your side of the story and further develop your claim by assembling evidence. Depending on the type of accident you experienced, your personal injury lawyer will review police reports, speak with witnesses, ask for security footage, and interview experts.
Develop a Case Strategy
Once your attorney understands your incident, they’ll develop a case strategy against the defendant. Using their evidence, they’ll establish a timeline for the accident and try to prove the defendant is at fault. Your attorney will ensure your case aligns with local laws and regulations and that they handle all court filings promptly.
Determine the Value of Your Case
Every personal injury case involves physical, emotional, or property losses. While a lawsuit can’t restore your health, it can give you the compensation you need to cover your past and future medical bills. It will also assist you with lost wages while you cannot work.
Once your attorney determines how much financial compensation you need to move on with your life, they’ll seek to negotiate a settlement for you. If the defendant is unwilling to provide you with a fair payment, your attorney will take them to court.
Fight on Your Behalf
When you hire personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles, you no longer need to deal with the administrative aspects of your case. You won’t need to talk to insurance providers or other involved parties. Your attorney will handle everything for you so that you can concentrate on your recovery without additional stress.
Give You Sound Legal Advice
Friends and family often give their advice following an accident. While they want to look after your best interests, their comments can lead to mistakes in your claim unless they are lawyers.
Personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles keep their advice objective. They are looking out for your best interests, but their legal experience helps them keep a close eye on your case while ensuring nothing happens that could potentially reduce your claim.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Morgan and Morgan is known for their dedication to clients who suffer injuries due to someone else’s mistakes. We take an empathetic approach, ensuring our customers feel comfortable with us and understand each step we take to protect them. Some of the most common types of personal injury claims we handle include the following:
Automobile accidents often result in injuries to drivers and passengers. We handle all kinds of vehicular accidents, including cars, trucks, and motorcycles. We’ll attempt to negotiate a settlement from an insurance provider once we understand and develop your case.
Slips and Falls
Slips and falls can result in severe injuries, especially to older adults or those with pre-existing medical conditions. Whether your accident occurs at a shopping center or the workplace, we’re ready to help. We’ll determine who should cover the costs of your losses and pursue compensation from them.
Pedestrian or Bicycling Accident
Pedestrians and bicyclists often fill the sidewalks and paths of Los Angeles. While walking and biking are healthy activities that anyone can enjoy, occasionally, they result in accidents. If a distracted driver crashes into you while you’re embarking on your daily exercise, you have legal options. We can pursue a claim against the at-fault party to obtain damages.
Workers are often at risk of injury, especially those who work in construction, manufacturing, or similar industries. Jobs in these industries often require workers to handle dangerous equipment and machinery. If you suffer injuries in a workplace accident, personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles can help you get the remuneration you need to cover your medical expenses and lost wages.
Medical malpractice occurs when a physician or other medical professional makes an error in your treatment that results in serious injuries. While we trust medical professionals to do their best when treating our conditions or illnesses, sometimes they make critical mistakes. A medical malpractice claim can right their wrongs and compensate you for your losses.
A defective product can cause severe, unexpected injuries. The designer, manufacturer, or retailer may be responsible for your losses. In some cases, several entities may be at fault.
Personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles can help you with a claim for a defective product and recoup the losses from your injuries.
Occasionally, an accident results in unexpected death. Family members are often left reeling in the aftermath as they seek to deal with the emotional anguish of losing someone close. A wrongful death claim can’t bring back your loved one, but it can make it easier to recover financially.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Case in Los Angeles?
You have up to two years to file a personal injury, wrongful death, or defective product claim in Los Angeles. If your claim involves medical malpractice, you have up to three years to file a lawsuit.
While the statute of limitations provides victims with some time to pursue legal action against others, your attorney will need time to assemble the evidence in your case and develop a legal strategy. Seeking legal assistance can help you understand your available options.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Individuals with a personal injury case can collect compensation for their past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and household costs during recovery. In some cases, they may receive remuneration for emotional pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement, and loss of quality of life.
Family members of individuals who die in an accident can receive compensation for their funeral and burial expenses. They may also receive damages for mental pain and anguish and loss of consortium or companionship.
Personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles will determine the approximate value of your claim and seek to obtain compensation from the responsible parties.
How Much Will I Pay for a Personal Injury Attorney?
At Morgan & Morgan, we offer free consultations for all potential clients. During your consultation, we’ll seek to understand the circumstances of your accident and discuss your possible options.
If you select us as your personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles, we’ll offer you a contingency agreement. Under the contingency agreement, we’ll receive a percentage of any settlement or court verdict we win on your behalf. If we cannot obtain any compensation for you, there is no cost whatsoever for our services.
How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Claim?
Most personal injury cases resolve through settlement. In a settlement, the defendant agrees to pay a specific amount to compensate you for your losses. If we can obtain a payment on your behalf, your case may take less than six months to resolve.
If the defendant is unwilling to come to an adequate settlement, we’ll need to take them to court. A court case can take several years to resolve, depending on your case’s complexity and the availability of the court.
Personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles can advise you of the likelihood of a settlement or if your case will likely require a trial.
Should I Give a Statement to an Insurance Provider?
It’s best not to go on record with a statement to an insurance provider unless you seek legal assistance first. Insurance providers will likely use your statement against you to reduce your claim or accuse you of being partially responsible for the accident.
An attorney can advise you of the legal options that are in your best interests. If you hire an attorney, they will handle all the communication with the defendant, allowing you to concentrate on your recovery.
