Personal Injury Attorneys in Brentwood
Brentwood is an affluent suburban neighborhood in the Westside region of the City of Los Angeles, located between Westwood and Santa Monica. Resting along the slopes of the Santa Monica Mountains, it’s known for its low population density and lush green pastures. It’s home to many Hollywood celebrities.
Despite its low population density, bad accidents caused by negligent behavior occur, as in any other suburb.
If you or a loved one suffered serious injuries in an accident, you might be entitled to compensation!
Our Brentwood personal injury attorneys help clients who have been badly injured or lost a loved one in an accident due to the negligence of another party to get compensated.
Serious accident injuries might include:
Examples of damages you might be able to recover include:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and future loss of earnings
- Reduced earnings potential
- Physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
In legal terms, “personal injuries” refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another party.
The three grounds for filing a personal injury claim are:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others.
Common accidents that might cause personal injuries include:
Car Accidents: Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injuries. They are typically caused by speeding, DUI, fatigue, wrong turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.
Truck Accidents: Truck accidents are often lethal – an accident with a large truck that weighs significantly more than your car typically doesn’t end well. Statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show that about 97% of vehicle occupants killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck are occupants of the passenger vehicles.
Motorcycle Accidents – Being on a motorcycle is a great way to enjoy the scenery in Brentwood. But as a rider or passenger, you don’t have a lot of protection against other vehicles and have a higher chance of suffering bad injuries in a motorcycle accident. Motorists often don’t notice motorcycles on the road until it’s too late.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Using ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are a popular and convenient way to get from A to B. But as the popularity of ride-hailing services increases, so do the number of road accidents and personal injury claims.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Data shows that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Every year many Brentwood residents are injured in slip and fall accidents. Common reasons include wet, slippery floors and uneven surfaces.
