How Do You Know If You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

How do you know if you need the assistance of a personal injury attorney? The answer is relatively straightforward.

If you are injured in an accident and want to recover compensation from the person or person(s) who are to blame, you should seek the expertise of a personal injury lawyer.

Injuries sustained in accidents can trigger significant expenses, which often exceed a victim’s ability to pay on his or her own. Filing a claim for damages can help to cover those costs.

In many cases, the party from which a victim must seek compensation is an at-fault party’s insurance company. Insurers will do everything in their power to reduce the amount(s) victims are paid. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the process. Call our law firm today to find out how we can assist you.

Recovering Compensation from At-Fault Parties

Injuries sustained in an accident can be life-altering. The Anaheim personal injury lawyers at Glotzer & Leib, LLP have successfully recovered compensation for injuries resulting from:

In many cases, lawsuits and claims for damages will be handled by an at-fault party’s insurance company. These companies are not in the business of handing out money to every person who files a claim. Rather, they will fight tooth and nail to minimize any payouts to those injured by their insured clients.

At Glotzer & Leib, LLP, our attorneys have extensive experience negotiating with and fighting against stubborn insurance companies. Decades of experience has allowed us to gain a unique understanding of the techniques and tactics insurers employ to minimize payouts. We use this expertise in conjunction with a comprehensive understanding of California personal injury law to stay one step ahead and maximize recovery for our injured Anaheim clients. We understand that every penny counts when recovering from an injury, so we fight tirelessly to maximize payouts.

What Is a Personal Injury?

Personal injury is generally defined as:

  • physical,
  • emotional, or
  • mental harm

caused by another’s action or failure to act. While physical injuries are the most common, mental and emotional traumas can be severe too.

Our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers can review the details of your accident. After doing so, our legal team can assess the injuries for which may be able to recover damages through a personal injury claim.

Involved In an Anaheim Motorcycle Accident? We Can Help.

Anaheim’s beautiful scenery makes the city incredibly attractive to California’s motorcyclists. As the weather gets warmer Anaheim roads will see an increase in motorcycle traffic and accidents. In fact, Anaheim ranks third amongst other California cities of similar size and population for motorcycle accidents in the state. In 2014, 133 accidents involving motorcycles led to a rider injury or death.

Motorcycle riders are at a greater risk of severe bodily injury than other drivers if they are involved in a collision. This is because motorcycles:

  • Are often difficult to see,
  • Lack important safety equipment such as airbags and seatbelts, and
  • Often maneuver through traffic by splitting lanes.

Motorcycles, due to their two-wheeled design, are also more dangerous to operate than other vehicles on the road. Motorcyclists involved in automobile collisions often sustain severe injuries. These injuries will forever alter the way they will be able to do normal, everyday tasks. Our Anaheim motorcycle accident attorneys understand the struggles an accident victim will face in the wake of an accident. We are ready to help you recover compensation needed to help you heal and move on.

Were You Injured In a Big Rig Accident?

Truck drivers are often overworked and tired behind the wheel. They want to get from Point A to Point B as quickly and efficiently as possible. Unfortunately, Anaheim is often included in the stretch of road between these two points. Attractions in the area also require daily deliveries, resulting in heavy trucking traffic. Vehicles involved in collisions with trucks typically sustain significant damage. Drivers of these vehicles rarely walk away uninjured.

Truck accident injuries can be significant. They can include:

  • Lacerations,
  • Broken bones,
  • Internal organ damage or bleeding.

If you are involved in a truck accident you should seek medical assistance immediately. In the event that you do suffer injuries in an Anaheim truck accident, our personal injury attorneys can help you recover compensation from the at-fault party.

Were You Injured at an Anaheim Tourist Attraction?

Anaheim is a bustling city – Disneyland attracted 18.2 million visitors in 2015 while more than 3 million fans were in attendance to watch the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2016. Millions more flock to Anaheim to watch the Anaheim Ducks and attend conventions and conferences at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Accidents are more likely to occur when so many people are in a concentrated area. While park, stadium, and attraction staff may do their best to avoid injuries to guests and tourists, accidents still happen. In fact, Disneyland was reportedly on the receiving end of over 114 personal injury lawsuits between 2007 and 2012. Slips and falls are the most common cause of personal injury accidents, while negligence is an oft-cited cause of injuries.

Facility owners and operators are under a duty to prevent injuries to its visitors. Failure to properly execute this duty may result in personal injury lawsuits on the basis of negligence. If you or someone you know has been injured at an Anaheim tourist attraction contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. If the attraction was negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Product Liability

Amusement park accidents may occur because the ride is defective or a component involved is not working correctly due to faulty design. In these situations it must be proved that either:

  • the equipment,
  • the structure, or
  • the part itself

was defective and that the defect was the reason behind the injury or the passing of the victim.

Have a Slip and Fall Accident in Anaheim?

Slip and fall accidents can happen for any number of reasons. Perhaps produce at a local grocery store has fallen out of its assigned bin and you step on it while walking briskly through the aisle. Maybe a store owner is not aware that his or her roof leaks and one day during a storm a puddle accumulates, causing a customer to lose his or her footing. Or, perhaps the restaurant has loose floorboard that causes a patron to catch his or her foot and fall. Any of these scenarios could cause a slip, fall, and injury.

Property owners have a duty to provide safe and accident-free locations to people invited onto the property. Failure to provide a safe environment could lead to liability for accidents that occur as a result.

Have You Lost a Loved One in an Anaheim Accident?

Some Anaheim accidents are so severe that the victim does not survive. The loss of a loved one is an incredibly difficult time, and families often bear unexpected financial burdens as they grieve. These financial burdens – including medical bills and funeral costs – can make a difficult situation nearly impossible to bear. California permits families who have suffered the loss of a loved one as the result of another’s action or failure to act to file wrongful death claims. Through a wrongful death claim, families can seek damages to cover:

  • Unexpected out of pocket costs,
  • Lost wages,
  • Pain and suffering, and
  • Mental anguish.

Damages for Personal Injury Claims

Anaheim accidents can cause injuries that trigger significant expenses and stress. If you or someone you know has been injured in an Anaheim accident you may be able to recover damages to compensate for:

  • Past and future medical expenses related to the accident;
  • Past and future lost wages related to the accident;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish, and
  • Loss of consortium or companionship.

Damages for expenses and injuries resulting from a fatal accident may be available through a wrongful death claim if you have a loved one who was killed in an Anaheim accident.

Limitations to Recovery in Personal Injury Claims

California follows pure comparative negligence rules, which means that recovery will be limited if you were partially responsible for the accident that caused your injury. Compensation awarded will be reduced by the degree to which you are determined to be at fault. For example, if you are seeking $100,000 after being hit by another driver, your damages may be capped at $75,000 if a court determines that you were 25% at fault because you were speeding.

California also imposes certain restrictions on when a personal injury lawsuit may be filed. Generally, most personal injury claims for damages must be filed within 2 years of the incident. If the claim is against a government entity a special administrative claim must be filed directly with the government within 60 days. A seasoned lawyer can review your claim and ensure your claim is filed within the permitted window.

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
