Residents of Irvine enjoy the many benefits of living in the Orange County / Southern California area. A relatively stable economy, low unemployment, and access to some of the finest schools in the state have made the area one of the choice residential spots of Southern California. But there is another side to the story as well.
Daily heavy commuter traffic on the area’s roads has led to a growing number of traffic accidents, and the injuries caused by these accidents are a factor in the number of emergency calls to the local fire and EMS services and also contribute to significant delays in some area Emergency Rooms. It is only when these costs are combined with the economic consequences of lost wages, property damage, and medical costs attributed to injuries in these accidents does a picture emerge of the real consequences of accidental injuries in the Irvine area.
Unfortunately, many victims of accidental injuries will not receive all the compensation for their injuries that they deserve. In many cases these victims are simply unaware that they are legally entitled to more than what is offered to them by insurance adjusters or others who stand to gain from low value settlements.
The Irvine accident lawyer at the Doan Law Firm is aware of this practice of unfair settlements and is ready to help those injured in accidents receive all the compensation that they are legally entitled to after receiving accidental injuries. When a client is represented by an attorney from our firm, they are assured that they will receive the best in legal representation and, above all, a fair settlement of their accidental injury case.
Types Of Cases We Represent For Our Clients
It would be difficult to list all the types of cases in which our firm represents our injured clients. Instead, we will present broader categories of these cases.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
The most common type of cases involve injuries received in accidents related to automobiles, motorcycles, or bicycles. In these cases we work closely with medical care providers such as physicians, clinics, and rehabilitation facilities to gain an understanding of the current and future medical needs of our clients. We also handle the task of working with insurance claims adjusters to arrive at a fair settlement of property damages such as loaner and replacement vehicles or the costs of vehicle repairs.
Injuries In Shopping Centers
We also represent clients who have been injured in accidents at retail shopping facilities such as supermarkets, shopping malls, or “big box” retail chain stores. In such cases we investigate the circumstances of our clients’ injuries, if any standard safety procedures were not in use at the time, and whether or not other parties may have contributed to the accident.
A third type of injuries that we represent are those which occurred on public transportation such as local and regional buses, trains, taxis, and private charter bus operators. We also represent clients whose injuries occurred on rights of way for trains and at unguarded rail crossings.
Unsafe Drugs, Medical Devices, and Medical Malpractice
Many of our clients have been injured as a result of an unsafe medical device or after having used a medication that was found to be dangerous to some users. We also represent victims of medical malpractice or those who have been injured by unqualified medical practitioners.
Defective consumer products are a major source of accidental injuries. Defective products are not limited to the home but are found in the schools, hospitals, public buildings, and even in restaurants. Any lawyer will confirm that when a defective product causes an injury, many vendors of these products will attempt to cover up any evidence that points toward its liability for injuries.
Why You Need An Irvine Injury Lawyer From The Doan Law Firm
There is always the temptation to agree to a quick settlement of your personal injury. This is practically always the wrong decision because such a settlement will usually not take into consideration the real costs of repairing or replacing your personal property or the potential costs that may arise due to unanticipated later medical expenses arising from your injuries. Having an attorney as legal representation is the best way to avoid an unfair settlement.
You can reach the Irvine California injury lawyer at the Doan Law Firm by calling (949) 438-0000 at any time that is convenient for you. Your initial consultation is always free and does not obligate you in any way. Should you decide to retain our firm we will represent you on a contingency basis, meaning we will assume the necessary legal fees and other costs associated with your case in return for a percentage of your final settlement.
