|Choosing the right Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney|
The personal injury field requires knowledge of very diverse issues. Your Los Angeles accident lawyer needs to have a strong grasp of the following:
The laws that apply to auto accident cases vary substantially from the laws that apply to product liability or elder abuse causes of action, for example. Depending on the circumstances of how the injury was sustained, an injured person may have more than one cause of action and a choice of legal remedies. The statutes of limitations (the time limits within which you must file a law suit or risk losing all your rights) may differ depending on the cause of action, for example the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the injury in most accident cases versus one year from the date medical malpractice becomes known to the patient in medical malpractice cases. At Liberman Law Group we analyze your case thoroughly when you call or come in for a free consultation and we immediately counsel you on the different options your personal injury case presents. You will always immediately speak with the attorney; paralegals or legal assistants are never involved in your case review.
No matter what type of accident you were injured in, it is very important that your personal injury attorney understands what your injury really is, how it should be treated and help you find the most qualified medical help. At Liberman Law Group we have more than 20 years of helping Los Angeles area residents injured in all kinds of accidents and we have litigated cases involving hundreds of different types of injuries. We’ve been working with hundreds of doctors in various areas of specialization, such as orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, oral surgeons, chiropractors and registered physical therapists to name a few. If you or your loved one does not have medical insurance, we will find you the right medical specialist who will treat you on a lien basis (where you do not have to pay anything until your case settles). We work with medical care providers to make sure the case does not move forward until our client’s injury has either healed or the condition has become stationary and the case is actually ready for resolution. At Liberman Law Group we thoroughly analyze the injury presented with the help of the most qualified medical professionals. We make sure we understand the injury and therefore are able to communicate the level of the pain and suffering experienced by our clients to the insurance companies and to juries if the case is litigated.
Expert Opinion and Testimony
It is an accepted fact of life in the legal profession that some cases are won or lost by experts and the testimony they produce at the time of trial or during the litigation process. It is very important for your Los Angeles accident attorney to be able to recognize the need for an expert at the earliest possible point in a particular case and then make sure the expert is one whose opinion the jury will respect. The timing of the hiring of an expert is also important. At Liberman Law Group we analyze your case and immediately counsel you on whether an expert would be needed and when. We’ve worked with many experts in the fields of accident reconstruction and biomechanical reconstruction as well as doctors, engineers, chemists, arborists and many others.
The Clients and Their Personal Needs
Even though some injuries may seem similar to others, their effect on any two people will most certainly vary. Obtaining a thorough understanding of our clients’ special needs and their particular pain is something we take very seriously at Liberman Law Group. We’ve been able to obtain higher and more favorable personal injury settlements for our clients because we actually listen to our clients’ complaints; we write down the descriptions of their pain and suffering and make sure the insurance companies and juries hear them. We also do not forget to treat every client as we would members of our families.
