Car Accidents and Collisions
Retaining a competent and experienced car accident lawyer is vital if you are injured in a wreck. Unfortunately, we see many individuals attempt to represent themselves and generally fail miserably for a few clear reasons. There are numerous studies illustrating a claimant who is represented by legal counsel, ‘net’ (after medical bills and attorney fees) have been paid in excess of three hundred percent more money had they handle their own auto accident claim.
If you opt to handle your own accident and injury claim, the insurance carrier will offer you a minimal amount of settlement money intending for you to go away. In fact, insurance carriers usually make such offers within days following the collision hoping to take advantage of the victim. At such time, you will not have any idea as to the extent of your injuries, future prognosis or the need for future medical treatment. These propositions are known in the industry as “nuisance value offers.” In other words, the insurance carrier sees the claim as a mere nuisance. They view the unrepresented accident victim as one who has “no bite behind their bark.” The carrier will take the position that you have no ability to do anything beyond demand money as the unrepresented party does not know the lay of the land in litigation and will get chewed up by a seasoned insurance defense lawyer.
Hit and Run Accidents
Hit and run accidents usually bring to mind images of people speeding away from the scene of a car accident. While this situation is indeed a hit and run, California laws regarding these types of accidents encompass a larger range of actions. Even if you stop your vehicle following an accident, someone can still accuse you of a hit and run if you fail to identify yourself or provide contact information. These laws are in effect regardless of who was at fault, the extent of the damages, or how minor the injuries were. A hit and run attorney from BSW Legal team can explain the nuances of these statutes, and how they may apply to your case.

We know you’re facing expensive medical bills and a long period of recovery where you can’t work, and that’s why we want to help you get compensation.
Trucks are an essential part of the American economy — but on the road, they can be deadly. Thanks to lax federal regulations and manufacturers that put profit first, personal trucks like pickups aren’t held to the same safety standards as passenger cars, even though they’re often used for the same purposes. Large commercial trucks like tractor-trailers, big rigs, or eighteen-wheelers weigh up to 20 times as much as a passenger car, virtually guaranteeing that they’ll crush smaller vehicles in an accident. Worse, some truckers and truck companies, in an effort to maximize profits and make their deadlines, ignore safety regulations. Victims of truck accidents — those in or outside the truck — are likely to be killed or sustain brain damage, spinal injuries, amputations and other very serious injuries.
Dog bites? Yes... dog bites are the ninth leading cause of unintentional, non-fatal injury to children. A dog bite can cause injuries which are extremely serious, possibly even life-threatening. They can leave scars and cause permanent disfigurement, and can result in a lifetime of pain and suffering. Even worse, a dog attack can become fatal. If you are the victim of a dog attack, call Los Angeles dog bite attorney Brian Weinberger for a free consultation.
