Pimentel Law is experienced in handling a wide variety of
Personal injury claims, including but not limited to:
When you’re injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence, we can obtain you financial compensation for the emotional harm, physical injuries, lost earnings and medical bills.
Drunk driving accidents are unique in the way that law enforcement officers need to be notified of the accident, even if no one was hurt, and that they will investigate the scene of the collision in detail.
Whether you suffer a TBI in a fall at a retail store, at the hands of a negligent doctor or as a result of another driver’s negligence, our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers have the skill and expertise in handling catastrophic injury cases.
Cases where individuals sustain an injury while on another party’s property. The injured individual has a right to seek damages from the person or entity that owns or exercises control over the property when that person or entity permits a dangerous condition.
The passing of a loved one is difficult, but what makes the experience even more painful is knowing that your loved one’s life was cut short by the negligent actions of another individual or corporation.
As experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorneys, we know that suffering a personal injury can be a traumatic and life-altering experience. If you require frequent doctor visits or are unable to work because of an accident, this can lead to financial stress and anxiety. If the accident leaves you physically impaired, in constant pain or limits you from doing the things you used to enjoy, this can cause a great deal of mental suffering as well.
We understand the impact that personal injuries can have on your life because our Pasadena injury lawyers have handled hundreds of personal injury cases spanning more than a decade. As a result, we know how to handle your case properly and can offer immediate solutions. For instance, when you hire our personal injury law firm, you will be given access to first-rate specialists to diagnose and treat your injuries, including orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, cardiologists, plastic surgeons, pain management physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists; all without any upfront cost to you.
This offers relief from the financial stress and anxiety caused by mounting doctor bills. Also, access to good doctors can offer relief from the financial stress of losing work because in many cases good treatment leads to a faster recovery, which means you are back to work and earning money again sooner. Giving you access to first-rate medical care is just one aspect of the solutions we offer. The other is case preparation. Thus, during this pre-litigation phase, we conduct as thorough and comprehensive an investigation possible.
Our personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles move quickly from the outset of your case to preserve evidence that you may not even have known existed, such as obtaining video footage of the accident, locating witnesses, obtaining police reports, making information requests to government entities and consulting experts. Our pre-litigation investigation is usually complete before you are finished treating with your doctors.
Once your doctors determine that your condition has reached the point of “permanent & stationary,” (meaning your condition has reached the point that it is permanent and not likely to substantially change with further treatment) we then conduct an analysis of your harms and losses to calculate the dollar value of your claim. We then promptly try to reach an out-of-court settlement with the other side. If that fails, we move your case into litigation.
During litigation, we engage in a process called “discovery,” where we supplement the preliminary findings of our pre-litigation investigation with additional evidence, such as sworn testimony, written answers, and documents from the defendant as well as sworn testimony from other witnesses. During this discovery process, our personal injury lawyers in Pasadena are required to share our evidence with the defendant’s lawyer and if requested, give them any sworn testimony, written answers, and documents they may request from you.
By the time discovery is complete, the defendant and insurance adjuster usually have a much greater appreciation of their financial exposure and are therefore much more receptive to settling your claim than in the pre-litigation phase. By this point, we can usually reach a fair settlement. However, in the off chance that we don’t, we are more than capable of taking your case to trial in order to get your desired outcome.
