Orange County Personal Injury Attorneys

Most accident victims simply assume that they will be treated with respect and receive the compensation they rightfully deserve to pay for their injuries and related expenses. This, unfortunately, is not always the case.

The person or business that caused your injury will most likely be insured, and that insurance company is all but guaranteed to have an experienced legal team with ample resources. These attorneys will be tasked with placing as much of the blame on you as possible. This means you need your own attorney, who will be focused on protecting your rights and maximizing your compensation.

After any type of accident that leaves you injured due to someone else’s negligence, you will need the knowledge and experience of the Orange County personal injury attorneys of Dickson, Kohan & Bablove. Whether your injury involved a car accident, slip-and-fall, construction accident, or anything else, we can represent you and ensure that you are treated fairly.

 

We Have Insider Knowledge

Our attorneys actually got their start working for the insurance companies. As a result, we know the tactics that insurance companies and their defense lawyers will use to minimize how much compensation you receive as an accident victim. Now that we are on the other side and representing accident victims, we can put that insider knowledge to work to your benefit.

Experienced Attorneys Who Work for You

The knowledge and experience of our Orange County personal injury attorneys will greatly improve your case’s chance for success and how much compensation you could receive. If you were to work with a novice attorney, the attorneys representing the insurance company will take full advantage of his or her inexperience.

Most law firms assign junior associates to handle a case after the initial meeting. This is not the case with our law firm, where a partner will represent you the entire time, throughout the proceedings.

We Represent Orange County Accident Victims

If you have been hurt due to the negligence of another, we can represent you.

Negligence is not always obvious. Sometimes negligence is the result of someone not taking necessary precautions to prevent hazards that could be a risk to others. For example, a doctor not disclosing the potential side effects of a drug or a business not keeping their property in good repair are both examples of negligence causing injuries, although the fault may not be obvious at first.

As Orange County personal injury attorneys, we can help you determine whether your injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, what happened, and whether your case would be best served by filing a lawsuit or negotiating out of court.

File Your Lawsuit Quickly

In California, the statute of limitations allows you two years in which to file a lawsuit after the date of your accident. If your injuries do not manifest immediately, the clock won’t start ticking until after your delayed injury has been properly diagnosed.

Speak with one of our attorneys as soon as possible. Two years may sound like a lot of time, but evidence is easiest to collect while it’s still fresh, and it will take time to build your case.

Car Accidents and Personal Injuries

Car accidents and personal injuries go hand in hand. The luckiest accident victims walk away with a few cuts and lacerations, while others suffer a broken bone or a concussion. Not everyone is so fortunate however. Car accidents can inflict serious injuries including severe traumatic brain injuries and spine injuries such as paralysis.

Since insurance companies and their lawyers are well-acquainted with fighting these types of claims, you’ll need our Orange County personal injury attorneys on your side to prove the extent of your injuries and why you deserve compensation.

Injuries After a Slip-and-Fall Accident

After a slip-and-fall accident, many victims go about their business thinking that the accident was their fault. In many cases, the slip-and-fall was actually due to the negligence of the property owner.

For example, if a property owner fails to warn customers or guests of a wet floor, the owner is going to be at fault for any injuries that occur. Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for visitors, and if a hazard can’t be corrected immediately, visitors must be warned of the danger.

Slip-and-falls often lead to broken bones, sprains, head injuries, hip injuries, and more. If you have suffered as a result of your slip-and-fall accident, you should speak with one of the Orange County personal injury attorneys in our office to explore your options.

Medical Malpractice Can Have Deadly Consequences

If a doctor or hospital did not properly diagnose you or if they did not take the proper care when performing a procedure, you may have suffered a serious injury as a result of medical malpractice.

Negligence by healthcare professionals can result in a number of common medical malpractice injuries:

  • Surgery complications
  • Internal bleeding
  • Excessive scarring and the need for subsequent surgeries
  • Death due to complications
  • Birth defects and developmental disorders

Whether you were injured by a doctor’s error or someone you love died due to medical malpractice, our Orange County personal injury attorneys can file a lawsuit on behalf of you and your family.

Premises Liability Injuries Are Common

Broken bones, sprains, strains, cuts, and head injuries are all common to premises liability complaints. If you were injured because a business, government entity, school, or even a homeowner did not maintain their property, you could have a personal injury case against them.

We can help you investigate the cause of your accident and determine to what extent the property owner had an obligation to your safety. Our Orange County personal injury attorneys will uncover whatever evidence there is and see that your case receives the care and attention it deserves.

Defective Drugs Can Destroy Your Quality of Life

Medicine is supposed to improve your health, but defective drugs can cause your health to deteriorate and put your wellbeing at risk. The repercussions of defective drugs are as varied as the health problems they’re meant to counteract:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Birth defects
  • Severe pain

If you have taken a defective drug, you may qualify for financial compensation. Call our office to discuss your options with seasoned Orange County personal injury attorneys.

A Construction Accident Can Qualify You for Lost Wages

If you were injured in a construction accident either as a worker or as a passerby, there’s a good chance that you have been unable to work since the accident. You could qualify for lost wages or disability payments in addition to medical expenses associated with your recovery.

Due to the heavy equipment and materials involved, construction accidents can be particularly serious:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Toxic exposure
  • Internal bleeding

 

Defective Products and Their Impact on Your Family

If a defective product has caused you or a family member to be injured, you deserve compensation for your injuries and the impact they have had on your life.

Common defective product complaints involve toys that are made with unsafe design defects, but any type of product could turn out to be poorly made or badly designed and therefore unsafe for consumer use. Whatever the type of product that has harmed you, we will need to conduct discovery to investigate what happened and why the product manufacturer could be liable.
