The Orange County personal injury lawyers of Dickson, Kohan & Bablove have extensive experience representing accident victims. If you have been injured and want to seek compensation from those responsible, you will need the help of an experienced attorney to ensure that you are not taken advantage of by the insurance companies.
We represent those injured due to the negligence of others. Almost any situation can result in a personal injury case, although injuries are more common to certain situations:
- Car accidents
- Premises liability
- Medical malpractice
- Defective drugs
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
- Dog bites
- And more
We Used to Work for the Insurance Companies
Prior to starting our law firm, we represented the insurance companies. Back then, our objective was to limit how much compensation an accident victim would receive. We were good at our jobs, but we wanted to help people instead of big corporations.
Now, we can represent you.
As Orange County personal injury lawyers, our experience is unique in that we have an intimate understanding of how the insurance companies operate, what they do to reduce or limit payouts, and the tactics they employ to get people to give up on their case. This insider knowledge allows us to engage them on their own terms and to pass that benefit on to you.
A Partner Will Handle Your Case
If you were to hire some other law firm, you would probably only meet with a partner once, if at all. After retaining them, that partner will likely hand your case off to a junior associate—often fresh out of law school and with experience limited to a classroom rather than a courtroom.
We operate differently.
When you hire our law firm, a partner will work on your case the entire time and give you the benefit of a career filled with experience and the knowledge that brings.
Proving Your Personal Injury Case
Before you can receive financial compensation for your injuries, we will need to demonstrate that some other party was negligent and that their actions or inaction caused your accident.
For example, in a car accident case, we need to demonstrate that the other driver was at fault for the wreck. Similarly, in a premises liability case, we may need to demonstrate that a business kept their property in disrepair. We will conduct an investigation based on the type of case you’re filing and gather the evidence necessary to demonstrate the negligence of those at fault.
As long as someone else was at least 51 percent at fault for your accident, you will qualify for financial compensation. As evidence isn’t always obvious or easy to obtain, our Orange County personal injury lawyers can make the entire legal process both easier and smoother.
Back Injuries After a Car Accident
Whiplash and other types of damage to the back and neck are all too common in car accidents. Back injuries can restrict mobility, make it difficult to complete daily activities, and create immense amounts of pain.
Back and spine injuries can take years to recover from and often require extensive medical care:
- Ongoing physical therapy
- Chiropractic care
- Back surgery
These are all medical bills that need to be paid for as part of your settlement. If you have suffered a back injury or any other type of injury in a car accident, our Orange County personal injury lawyers can represent you and see to it that all of your medical expenses are taken into account.
Sprains, Strains, and Broken Bones from a Slip-and-Fall
Sprains, strains, and broken bones often coincide with slip-and fall accidents. While a sprain may be considered a minor injury, it can limit your ability to complete daily tasks at home and work. Lost income and wages are things that you should be compensated for, and we can help you hold those responsible accountable for your fall.
PTSD After a Dog Bite
Injuries suffered from a traumatic event such as a dog bite can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Most people do not think about the emotional impact of an accident. However, PTSD is a common condition, and accident victims who develop it often suffer from intense fears that impact their daily lives.
Since this condition is typically not immediately diagnosed, you should contact our Orange County personal injury lawyers as soon as you realize that you have the condition. California’s statute of limitations only provides a two-year window in which to file suit, so we need to begin working on your case immediately.
Health Complications Due to Medical Malpractice
Many people suffer from health problems after taking a defective drug or being the victim of medical malpractice. When you put your trust in the healthcare system and it harms you instead, you could qualify for money to pay for your medical expenses and damages.
Head Injuries in Premises Liability Cases
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are often the result of construction accidents, car accidents, and accidents due to premises liability issues. TBI is dangerous, and if left undiagnosed, it can create long-term problems with your cognitive and physical abilities.
Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are kept safe for visitors. When you were a guest on someone else’s land and a hazard they left unattended to caused you harm, our Orange County personal injury lawyers can advise you on how to seek compensation for their negligence.
Defective Products Can Cause Personal Injuries
Defective products can cause consumers to suffer a variety of injuries depending on the product involved:
- Severe burns
- Poisoning and toxic exposure
- Cuts and lacerations
- Head and brain injuries
- Mental and emotional trauma
Any product on the market should be safe for consumers. Manufacturers owe it to their customers to ensure that their products will not cause harm when used as intended. Our Orange County personal injury lawyers can evaluate your case and help you explore your options if a defective product has hurt you in some way.
