People are always asking us, "What kind of law do you practice?"
Our answer is simple. We’re Orange County personal injury lawyers. We help victims of personal injury and wrongful death put their lives back together.
We represent people and their families. Not big corporations. We empower the powerless and hold wrongdoers accountable for their bad acts.
So what does all of that mean? Well, here are a couple of recent examples. Several new and tragic cases coming into our office just over the past two weeks are as follows…
New Case: A young teenage girl broke down next to the freeway and having no other alternative, started to walk home late at night. Another vehicle exiting the freeway without its lights on struck and severely injured her. Our client was placed into an induced coma in early December and she remains in a coma to this day. Doctors are evaluating her medical condition on a day to day basis.
New Case: A young man lost control of his vehicle while driving down the freeway. His car came to rest in the carpool lane. Traffic continued to pass safely by. About a minute or so later, another vehicle being operated in an inattentive fashion, struck our client’s vehicle causing the young man’s death. We represent his mother and father. The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is looking at filing vehicular manslaughter charges against the responsible driver.
New Case: While walking across the street to a yard sale, our client was struck and thrown over the top of a vehicle negligently operated at a high rate of speed. Our preliminary analysis is that the young driver may have been texting while driving. An investigation is ongoing. Unfortunately, our client was severely injured by the impact.
New Case: Our two clients were driving down the street. Another vehicle made an unsafe and illegal left turn directly in front of them causing a major collision. Both clients sustained serious injuries. One client has spent several weeks in the hospital undergoing major surgery. Because of her injuries, her life will never be the same.
New Potential Case: We were consulted regarding a potential first party insurance bad faith case against a national insurance company. The potential clients’ business was destroyed in a fire and their insurance company is refusing to cover the loss.
As you can see, it’s been a busy year so far. Too many people are being harmed because of the avoidable wrongful conduct of others.
Because of brief moments of carelessness, lives are forever changed and families face potential financial devastation. Please be careful and watch out for your fellow human beings.
