Personal Injury

Experienced Los Angeles Lawyer for Personal Injury Lawsuits

People are often injured through the carelessness or misconduct of others. Certain injuries such as complex fractures, amputations, paralysis, spinal cord damage, brain injuries, head injuries, and organ damage, may be catastrophic and life altering. Many people do not have enough money to address the full scope of losses they experience after suffering injuries, whether in a motor vehicle accident or while on another person’s property due to a dangerous property condition. If you were injured through the fault of another, you should call seasoned Los Angeles personal injury attorney Ben Mehdian of Mehdian Law APC. He deploys insights gained from years of trial experience to his clients and has negotiated numerous settlements and awards at trial on behalf of the injured.

Proving Liability in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Lawyers frequently pursue personal injury lawsuits in Los Angeles under a theory of negligence. This means that our attorneys will need to establish certain elements by a preponderance of the evidence in your case in order to recover damages on your behalf. We’ll need to show: (1) the defendant owed you a duty of care, (2) the defendant breached the duty of care, (3) actual and proximate (legal) causation, and (4) actual damages.

The specifics of the situation determine what the duty of care was, but generally, all drivers owe a duty of care to others with whom they share the road, and property owners owe a duty of care to either make repairs to dangerous conditions on their property or provide warnings to lawful visitors about them.  

Often defendants and their insurers raise the defense of comparative negligence. They argue that the plaintiff is partially or fully to blame for the injuries sustained. For instance, in a truck accident case, they may argue that you failed to check your blind spots or were speeding, in order to show that your conduct was negligent. In investigating a potential claim, the defendant’s insurer may contact you with the hopes of securing an admission that can later be used as evidence. You should call Mr. Mehdian for a consultation before speaking to representatives of the other side.

Premises Liability

Lawyers who represent personal injury clients in Los Angeles may be able to sue a property owner or occupier, including a store or other establishment, for damages due to a dangerous property condition on the defendant’s property. Dangerous property conditions can include broken steps, broken handrails, uneven surfaces, rotting beams, deteriorated balconies, poor lighting, and inadequate signage. Sometimes building code violations may be used as evidence to build your case. Also critical to establishing your right to recover damages is showing that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous property condition and failed to warn about it or make repairs.

Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney to Recover Damages for Catastrophic Injuries

When we are able to establish liability for an accident, we may be able to recover compensatory damages, or damages that are intended to put you back in the position you would have been in had there been no negligence. These damages may be economic and noneconomic, and may cover:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Replacement services
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium.

The nature and extent of your injuries—whether or not they are catastrophic will determine what settlement offers are appropriate to take. Even if you do not go to trial, you are likely to get a better outcome with a trial attorney who can leverage the strongest facts to negotiate, and who the defense will take seriously.
