Our team is here to guide you through the legal process by investigating the details of your accident, negotiating a settlement, and calculating the cost of your expenses.

Recoverable Damages in a California Personal Injury Case
After being injured due to another party’s negligence, you may be dealing with an array of economic and non-economic damages. Our team believes that you should not have to pay out of pocket for these losses. With the help of our team, we can review the invoices, billing statements, and receipts associated with your case to determine the cumulative value of your damages.
We can also help you seek financial recovery for the following expenses:
- The cost of treating your injuries
- Payment for fixing or replacing your vehicle or any other damaged property (if applicable to your situation)
- Wages lost from the time that you were unable to work
- Compensation for your physical and emotional anguish
- Reimbursement for any harm done to your future earning power
Depending on your circumstances, you could recover compensation for additional types of damages.
We Handle a Variety of Personal Injury Cases
Since 1972, our team has been helping people get their lives back after getting hurt. We have recovered millions of dollars for injured people throughout the country, and we are excited to extend our services to people living in Calabasas.
Some of our team’s practice areas include:
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a car accident, first, our team will review your situation to determine if you have a valid case. We can explain whether filing an insurance claim or a lawsuit could meet your goals. Additionally, we can negotiate a settlement, calculate the cost of your various expenses, and communicate with the other party’s legal counsel.
When it comes to dog bite cases, California operates under the principle of “strict liability.” This means, to pursue compensation, you do not need to prove that the dog’s owner was negligent. You do not even need to prove that the dog had a history of aggression – you only need to show that a dog bit you and that you were injured.
Our team can review your situation and strategize a course of legal action.
Premises Liability Incidents
If you were hurt while visiting another party’s property, it does not matter whether you were injured on public or private property––you could still recover compensation for your losses. For your case to be successful, we must prove that because of a foreseeable hazard, you got hurt.
If you were injured while you were on or around a construction site, liability for your damages will depend on your situation. For instance, if you were harmed by a faulty piece of equipment, liability could rest on the maker of that product.
This is not intended to serve as a complete list of the cases we handle. Other examples of our practice areas include hit-and-run accidents, brain injuries, bus accidents, rideshare accidents, burn injuries, catastrophic injuries, and wrongful death cases.
A Calabasas personal injury lawyer from our team will collect evidence, communicate with the involved parties, and pursue the compensation to which you may be entitled.
You Have a Limited Time to File a Lawsuit
As noted in California’s statute of limitations outlined under the Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §335.1, you have a limited period in which you can file a personal injury lawsuit. Most claimants have two years from the date of their incidents to follow through with legal action. However, based on your circumstances, this may not apply to you.
By working with a lawyer promptly after your accident, you will give your legal team time to build your case. You can also protect your right to compensation.
