Did you suffer a personal injury or an accident in Lancaster?

With major employers like Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and BAE this is a busy, yet beautiful area where an accident can happen easily and quickly.
Lancaster CA is also trying to become the nation’s first Net-Zero municipality, wherein they will produce more clean energy than they consume. Much of the City’s infrastructure including City Hall, local schools, and even the minor league baseball stadium are solar powered.

What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A personal injury lawyer provides legal representation, is intimately familiar with California Tort law, and will represent you in the Antelope Valley Court House when you have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing by another person, company, government agency, or other entity.
Personal injury lawyers are especially knowledgeable and have more experience than other types of lawyers in the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.
Accidents can happen and fall into two categories, a true accident where there is really no one to blame, or a mishap that is clearly the result of someone else’s carelessness or fault. Accidents can also happen at any one of the Lancaster CA great events. Year round events include the California Poppy Festival, LA County Air Show, Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix and the Antelope Valley Fair.

Slip and Falls
Many people believe that trip / slip and fall accidents are not serious. Unfortunately, they can be. For example, these type of accidents can happen when:
- A manhole cover is missing.
- A railing was left with a sharp edge.
- Floors are cluttered.
- Floorboards are loose.
- Sidewalks are defective and not cordoned off correctly.
- Parking lot potholes.
- Poorly constructed staircases.
- Carpeting is torn.
- Floors were recently mopped or waxed and no warning signs were left.
With the high cost of medical care these days it is important to receive the compensation for a fall accident to pay the medical providers completely and to pay for lost wages. If the fall took place in a business and is clearly the result of negligence by the business owner, he or she should be held accountable and pay your medical bills.

Did you, or your child get attacked by a vicious dog? Do you still hear the growling and snarling of the animal and the fear and screams of your child? Does the scene still play in your head, over and over, again and again? There is no excuse for a vicious dog to be able to attack a random by-passer or friend that does not provoke the animal. Animals that cannot be trusted must be contained. Unfortunately the accounts of what happened can vary greatly between the victim, the dog owner and bystanders. Often these accounts are also influenced by the breed of the dog. Our compassionate lawyers will help sort through the various accounts to arrive at a fair and honest account to present in the courts.
