Two types:

    a)    Intentional, this is where the perpetrator’s deliberate act or inaction caused the death of the decedent.

No. Attorney fees are contingent on recovery. This means that attorney fees are deducted from the money that is recovered, and you won't pay anything if there is no recovery.

    16.    Can I change my wrongful death attorney without paying more in attorney fees?

Yes. You have the right to change your attorney at any time during his or her representation. After your case is resolved, your attorney pays part of his fees to the previous attorney.

    17.    How long does it take for my wrongful death claim to be resolved?

A wrongful death case can be resolved at any time after death of a loved one. This could be months or even several years depending on many factors including whether a lawsuit is filed and the court's schedule which would affect the date of your wrongful death trial.

    18.    What if I don't live in California?

Have You Been Injured In A Car Accident in California?

Instead, there is usually a lengthy and complicated negotiation process during which the goal of the insurance company is to pay you as little as possible. It is very important to remember that you have rights and can be compensated not only for the damage to your vehicle but for medical care, loss of income, temporary or permanent pain, physical discomfort or disability and for loss of family, social and educational experiences.

There are more fatal injuries as a result of T-Bone Accidents (side impact or broadside collision) than any other type of collisions.  Even when there are no fatalities, spinal injuries are more likely as opposed to rear-end car accidents.

Unlike rear-end collisions the spine is not well protected by the occupant’s seat, therefore a high-speed collision is not necessary to generate the flexion and compression mechanism necessary to cause substantial injury to the spine.  In rear-end and front-end collisions the majority of reported injuries are cervical spine injuries, but in side impact, broadside collisions or T-Bone accidents, the entire spine, lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine, is vulnerable. 

Insurance companies regularly delay and deny claims or settle them for meager amounts of money.  If you have an aggressive trial attorney, who has the knowhow of trial procedure and the financial ability to take your case before a jury, he will undoubtedly be faced with vigorous testimony of the insurance company’s experts who won’t hesitate to fabricate testimony to nullify your rights.

The Majlessi Law Firm utilizes the most capable experts in Los Angeles including biomechanical engineers whose responsibility is to show the jury how injuries could easily result in T-Bone accidents.  Additionally, the accident would be reconstructed by an accident reconstructionist who would educate the jury on how the collision occurred, assigning fault to the defendant driver.  Moreover, medical doctors, Orthopedist, Neurologists, etc. explain the injuries, diagnosis, prognosis, and the expenses associated therewith.  In more serious T-Bone personal injury accidents, where the injured person is debilitated for life, an expert economist would be used to establish the value of future loss of earnings.

Los Angeles has one the heaviest vehicular traffics anywhere in the nation and without a doubt the heaviest traffic in California.  As a result rear-end accidents are part of everyday life of drivers in Los Angeles.  Although, most accidents result in no injury, many do result in serious neck and back injuries.  Even in low speed impacts personal injury is likely as evidenced by scientific studies regarding rear-end accident injuries. 

Insurance companies often deny your injury claim based on what you failed to do after the accident.

If you are injured in a rear-end accident in Los Angeles do the following to protect your health and your personal injury claim:

  1. Tell the investigating police officer of your personal injury and pain
    Police officers document in the police report whether you claimed injury and pain at the scene of the accident.  Insurance companies bank on the fact that you failed to mention to the investigating police officer that you suffered personal injury.  Insurance companies through their lawyers tell the jurors that you were not injured, that if you were you would have let the investigating officer know of your pain and personal injury.
  2. Do not refuse ambulance transportation to the hospital
    If you are injured don’t refuse ambulance transportation.  Insurance companies argue through their lawyers to the jury that if you were really injured you would have used an ambulance to go to the hospital, that an ambulance was available for you to use but you refused because you were not injured.
  3. Do not get on the phone with defendant’s insurance company and don’t provide a recorded statement
    Within days of the accident you may get a call from defendant’s insurance company.  They will ask you questions regarding the accident and if they find the information beneficial they will ask you to allow them to record your statement regarding the accident.  At this juncture you don’t know the extent of your personal injuries, so as many people do, you would downplay your injury or downright deny it.  Then within a few days or weeks the minor pain has turned into an unbearable pain.  A visit to a doctor shows that you have suffered from a serious injury to your spine.  The insurance company has your recorded statement and has the adjuster whom you gave a recorded statement ready to testify against you that you confessed that you did not suffer from personal injury.  The insurance companies through their lawyers use your own words before a jury to attack your personal injury claim as fraudulent claim.

If you follow these 3 simple steps after and auto accident you will be in an excellent position to receive a personal injury claims settlement from a rear end collision.

Burns injuries are among the most painful injuries a person can experience. When someone is severely burned the pain in lingering and the continual surgery required, including the recovery and rehabilitation are truly a life-changing experience.

Thanks to new surgical techniques burn victims have an opportunity for better recovery than years ago. But these surgeries and other medical treatments can take years and often decades to complete. Burns to young people and especially children are particularly tragic. The emotional trauma and unfortunately the ongoing pain and physical challenges for a young person can cause seriouis psychological damage beyond the needed medical treatments.

Ironically some burn victims are reluctant about obtaining legal help because they wrongly assume they may be considered automatically at fault for the injury. However you should not assume that. You may only be partially at fault. There may have a defective product or a condition that another person or company is responsible for, which means you may have a legal claim which may result in a monetary settlement. Please do not hesitate to contact us so we can examine all possible legal remedies for your benefit.

There are many possibilities for compensation for burn victims. The following are just a few which our legal team will evaluate for you:

Cost of emotional counseling

Payment for your medical bills

Cosmetic surgery

Rehabilitive surgery

Physical therapy

Hospitalization

Vocational therapy

Training for new employment

Loss of wages and income

Compensation for pain

Loss of consortium - the diminishment of your ability to enjoy your relationship with your loved ones

Contact our offices today so we can help you or someone you know to assist you in a burn injury lawsuit. We have the experience and resources you need to hep you on your road to recovery. Contact The Majlessi Law Firm now.

Hazardous roadway accidents too often result in personal injuries. Because of improperly maintained and installed highway features motorists are seriously injured because of government's negligent highway construction and lack of maintenance.

For example, The Majlessi Law Firm's experience has found that guardrails are many times improperly installed and poorly maintained. This is unfortunate because motorists expect that guardrails will protect them from injury instead of causing or worsening a vehicle accident. Our highway taxes are supposed to provide safe driving conditions, but too often highways are left to deteriorate providing unsafe and hazardous conditions for drivers and their families.

Our team of expert witnesses and examiners will document the guardrail failure and provide the highest level of forensic examination of all of the conditions which led to the accident. Our medical experts will provide extensive medical documentation required to prove that the guardrail caused or increased the injuries, as well as forecasting future medical expenses and rehabilitation that will be required by the injured. Loss of current and future income will also be provided by our expert legal team. Our professionals will put together a comprehensive compensation package to ensure that our clients receive the largest settlement possible.

If you, your family or someone you know has been injured because of defective highway conditions, including guardrail accidents, please contact The Majlessi Law Firm. We are ready to help you and fight your case aggressively to get you the money and treatment you deserve.

As our population ages, our law offices are finding that nursing home abuse is increasing more and more across tne nation.  Over the past several years over 30% of nursing homes have been found in violations that harm residents or puts them in serious jeopardy. Congress reports that millions of older people reside in nursing homes with not enough staff to give them the care they need.  Even more disturbing is over 40% of the residents are underfed or dehydrated.

There are federal laws that require that nursing home residents must receive quality care and conditions.  The laws further require that nursing care residents must live in conditions that maintains or improves their physical and mental health.  The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 further states that nursing home residents are entitled to freedom from abuse, misappropriation of funds and overall neglect.  Just because you or a loved one enter a nursing home facility you do not surrender your rights to protection from criminal acts.

Nursing Homes need to provide quality care

You may be eligible for monetary compensation if a nursing home does not provide adequate care.  Compensation can cover various situations, including suffering, pain, medical treatment, disfigurement and other abusive situations.  In addition, the family of a person who has suffered nursing home abuse may also be entitled to compensation under certain circumstances, such as the victim dieing because of nursing home abuse or neglect.

Types of abuse for which compensation may be obtained

There are a number of areas where a legal claim may be filed.  Some of these include:

  • Physiological or emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse, including pain or injury, wrongful use of drugs, or punishment
  • General neglect.  A resident must not be  deprived of food, water, shelter, clothing, hygenic conditions and overall comfort.
  • Exploitation financially or materially.  It is illegal to improperly manage an older person's property, funds or assets.
  • Abandonment of a person by someone who is responsible for the care of an older person.

The above are just a few examples. If you feel you or your loved one is suffering from nursing home abuse please contact our office immediately so we can evaluate the situation and find legal remedies to provide the quality of life any older person deserves.  Our experienced legal team will determine what kind of a lawsuit should be filed in order to obtain the highest compensation possible.  Please contact us today.

Too often we read in the newspapers about a tragic accident involving a swimming pool. What should be an enjoyable and fun experience for a person in a pool ends up in injury or even death.

The national statistics regarding swimming states that the number two cause of death in children under 14 is swimming pool accidents. A person of any age who is involved in a swimming pool accident can end up with medical conditions that can effect them for life.

There are many types of swimming pool accidents. Injuries an include brain injuries or concussion, drowning, spinal cord injuries among others. A person or company that operates a swimming pool is required to provide safety and security when it offers its swimming pool to friends, family or the public. For example, proper warning signage needs to be clearly visible regarding the availability of life guards, the depth of the pool and so on. In addition the pool owner must comply with regulations regarding fencing the pool and proper locks.  Importantly, an unused pool can also be a cause of injury or death and therefore must be securely covered.

It makes common sense, and is also a legal obligation, that in addition to the pool owner, all people in the vicinity of a swimming pool must conduct themselves appropriately, and must especially be observant of children who by their nature depend on adults for their safety. Children enjoy swimming in a pool, but are too young and inexperienced to judge matters related to their safety. For example, a young child cannot be expected to understand the depth of the pool, the dangers of a swimming pool or the limits of their skills in a water environment. That is why children must always be supervised by one or more responsible adults, without exception.

Diving board accidents are another cause of swimming pool injury or deaths. A owner of a swimming pool must take into consideration the additional risks a diving board presents when they offer their pool for use by others. A diving board presents dangers for the diver and for people in the area of a diver when they enter the water.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a swimming pool accident contact our office as soon as possible. Our legal team will evaluate the possible legal remedies to get you the compensation you need for any ongoing medical treatment, or wrongful death. Another reason you need to contact us quickly is so we can interview eyewitness. We look forward to hearing from you.  Please give our office a call.

Did Your Loved One Die Because of Negligence of Another in California?

It is a difficult and tragic experience when a death of a loved one of any age occurs. It is even more tragic when that person is suddenly taken from us due to the neglect of another person, company, entity or organization. The grief can be inconsolable. In addition there are the expenses of medical bills, funeral costs, and often the loss of income to the family.

The most catastrophic traffic accident in several decades happened near Palm Springs, California, on the 10 Freeway when a tour bus, a 1996 MCI bus, which was operated by USA Holiday rammed a semitrailer at around 5:17 a.m. PDT on Sunday October 23, 2016. Thirteen (13) wrongful deaths and 31 injuries were the consequence of the driver's negligent driving. Early involvement of a seasoned wrongful death attorney can make a world of difference. Although the National Transportation Safety Board investigates the cause of the crash, looking for liability elsewhere necessitates a dedicated wrongful death attorney and trial lawyer with superb knowledge of the law, for there might be others (in addition to the driver) who would have to share responsibility and be held accountable for the wrongful death of so many people. Furthermore, the insurance policy of the bus will no doubt be insufficient to make the families of the victims whole again (in the eye of the law), therefore if the trier of the facts (jury or judge) finds others liable as well as the driver, there may be more money to be added to the money from the insurance policy of the bus to be divided amongst the victims' family members. Consequently it is of grave importance that the family members of the victims retain a wrongful death attorney who would have the stamina and wherewithal to pursue liability wherever it can be found rather than hiring an attorney who would go for an easy quick settlement. Moreover all wrongful death victims' family members should take notice of the fact that if they are not satisfied with their current wrongful death attorney's representation for any reason whatsoever they have the right to change their wrongful death attorney at any time without any additional costs to them.

The Majlessi Law Firm pursues child car seat injury cases vigorously. Children are precious to all of us and it is devastating to everyone to see a child suffering by injury and in pain. As loving families, we do all that we can to protect our children.

You want to do the right thing. Even before your child was born, you ran out and purchased what appeared to be a quality infant car seat. You read the instructions and installed it properly. You never took your new child for a ride without buckling them in. Then the unimaginable happens, when using the seat as a child carrier, as designed by the manufacturer, the handle collapses and spills your child head first on the pavement.

The fact of the matter is safety designs directed toward protecting children would have prevented these tragedies. Yet, the vehicle and child safety industries refuse to take responsibility for these needless injuries and deaths. Instead, they choose to routinely blame parents and others for safety problems they have created.

Children are extremely vulnerable during car accidents, which can cause serious brain injury or even death. In fact, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death among children between the ages of 4 and 14.. Child safety seats can significantly reduce the risk of injury or death for infants and toddlers during a car accident. Even if used correctly, defective child seats are an all-too-common occurrence.

If you or a friend has a child who has suffered a child car seat injury please contact our office immediately so we can get you the money you need to ensure the best possible treatment for your child, as well as compensation for the neglect caused by the car seat manufacturer.

One of the most high profile accidents in the United States happened in Glendale in 2005. While the accident was classified as a train crash, it actually involved a train-vehicle collision. On January 26, Juan Manuel Alvarez had parked his Jeep Cherokee Sport utility vehicle on the tracks, supposedly trying to commit suicide. Failing miserably, he caused the deaths of 11 innocent commuters. In 2008, Alvarez was sentenced to serve 11 consecutive life terms in prison. More and more people are taking advantage of trains for their commercial and recreational travel needs.  However those same trains are often not well maintained, or are operated by overworked conductors and other employees.  Because of this there is an increase in train accident injuries.

If you've been injured in a train accident or MetroLink you deserve to be represented by an experienced personal injury train accident attorney at the Majlessi Law Firm. Trial attorney Art Majlessi is an experienced personal injury attorney with years of successfully winning personal injury cases.

The United States has a huge rail system which has been built over the past centuries.  While there have been some upgrades to the system, much of it is in serious disrepair. In addition, in order to save costs, there is less personnel operating the trains.  Older, more experienced employees have been replaced by less experienced personnel.  All of this means that when you take the train you are needlessly risking your life because of cost-cutting. Most legal experts agree that the Metrolink accident could have been prevented and that it was caused by operator error.  It was a terrible tragedy that never should have happened.

While all modes of transportation have an element of risk, train accidents can result in particularly serious accidents, including maiming, disfigurement and even death.  It may surprise the traveling public to know that every hour there is a train accident, collision or derailment.  Over a thousand people a year are killed every year in train accidents.

Train accidents have many causes, including operator fatigue and distraction (which appears to be the cause of the Los Angeles MetroLink accident), speeding too fast, switches that are not properly aligned, and many other causes.

One would think that passenger safety would be the highest priority of the companies and agencies that operate our rail system. Preventing train accidents should be one of the most important functions of the organizations that run our nation's rail systems.  But that is not the case.  Most train operators are only concerned with cutting costs.

Even worse, when you are injured in a train accident, the attorneys and insurance companies representing the train companies are not concerned about your recovery and well-being.  They want to settle your case as cheaply as possible.  If you have an attorney who is not willing to take your train accident case to court then the insurance companies will offer you a very small settlement.  The Majlessi Law firm is well known by personal injury insurance companies. They know that trail attorney Art Majlessi will not hesitate to take cases to court, and get a substantial jury verdict award.  Trial attorney Art Majlessi knows how to aggressively present your case to a jury to get you the most money.

If you, a loved one, or a friend has been injured due to train accident, please contact us the Majlessi Law Firm immediately.  Consultation is free, there is no obligation. You will not be charged any fees until there is a recovery in your personal injury case (train accident case). All costs and expenses will be advanced by the Majlessi Law Firm. Call now to speak directly with attorney Art Majlessi. Trial lawyer Art Majlessi will meet you in person to discuss and evaluate your injury case.

Pedestrian accident death and injuries have become more common due to the increase in traffic and population, and illegal use of motorized scooters on the sidewalk. It is tragic that someone walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street, through no fault of their own, can be involved in an accident with a vehicle, scooter, or motorcycle which can cause serious injuries that can affect them for life.

Traumatic and serious injuries are common to pedestrian accidents. Your pedestrian accident attorney must be prepared to make proper and necessary referrals to medical care professionals. Many victims of pedestrian accidents ask their personal injury lawyers for referrals for job retraining if they have become disabled and no longer able to commit themselves to the career they had before their injury.

Statistics show that a pedestrian is killed in a traffic crash every 113 minutes, i.e. pedestrian wrongful death. That means that over 4000 pedestrians are killed each year.  These statistics are even worse when non-fatal but serious injuries occur to a pedestrian.  Even when a pedestrian is acting responsibly and obeying the traffic rules they can still be injured by a negligent driver or an operator of an electric scooter illegally riding on the sidewalk. The Majlessi Law Firm pedestrian accident lawyers.

The Majlessi Law Firm has successfully litigated all types of vehicle accidents, including seat belt failure. Seat belts, properly installed and manufactured are life saving devices.  When used properly they protect the passenger from the sudden impact of a vehicle crash.

When a passenger puts on a seat belt they rightfully believe that they will be protected in case of a crash.  Unfortunately too often a poorly designed or installed seat belt fails and the passenger suffers injuries that can be devastating.

One would think that auto makers' highest priority would be the safety of its vehicles.  However, the fact is millions of cars on our nation's highways have defective seat belts that can fail in car accidents.  Even though manufacturers are aware of these defects they have done little to improve the design in order to provide the best protection in case of an auto accident. They are only concerned with cost savings. As a result thousands of vehicle passengers are needlessly injured in an auto accident every year.  It is bad enough to be involved in an auto accident.  it is even worse when the restraint system that is supposed to protect you fails and you have additional injuries.  You need to contact our offices so we can get you the money you need for your medical expenses and other costs related to your accident.

Even though seat belts have been a part of a vehicle's safety features for decades, too often they provide a false sense of security because of defects or improper installation.  People have a right to expect to be kept safe when they put on their seat belts every time they are in a car.  As personal injury attorneys we have seen too often entire families devastated as a result of a seat belt which has failed. It is particularly tragic when a young person is injured by a defective seat belt. And anyone, of any age, who is injured by a faulty seat belt needs to contact our offices as soon as possible.  If you, or a loved one, have suffered from seat belt related injuries in a car accident, contact The Majlessi Law Firm as soon as possible. We will get you the money you need and deserve.

Every year, millions of Americans are bitten by dogs and other animals. Being bitten by a dog is an extremely terrifying and painful event. Dogs have sharp and powerful teeth that can cause scars and disfigurement. The attack it self can result lifelong emotional trauma.

It is the responsibility of the owner of a dog to prevent such injuries. The dog owner is responsible and liable for dog bite injuries. The dog bite can have been initiated by the dog or by the command of the owner. If you or someone you love has been bitten by a dog or other animal you need to have your medical expenses and other costs taken care of.

You cannot depend on the insurance companies to give you the money you need. They want you to settle for a meager amount. You need the experienced legal team of The Majlessi Law Firm to represent you. You need to contact us today.

A dog bite can be the result of any number of circumstances, and often compensation is due to the dog bit victim.  The owner may have known their dog was vicious and had done little or nothing to prevent someone from suffering a bite. Even if a dog has never bitten anyone before, an owner must be aware of the possibility of even a docile dog biting someone -- and being the owner of the dog means they have legal responsibility for any injuries caused by the animal. The dog may have been off their lease in violation of local leash laws. The dog may have escaped its confines and ended up roaming public areas, resulting in the animal biting an innocent victim. The owner or keeper of a dog is strictly liable for his or her dog, even if it is the first time the dog has injured someone.

If you are a loved one, or friend, has been a victim of a dog bite contact our office today.  We will make sure you get the money you are entitled to for your pain and injuries.

The Majlessi Law Firm litigates injuries suffered due to a tire blowout or shredding which tend to cause severe and catastrophic injuries. This is because tread separation can lead to rollovers and other serious accidents.

SUV's are more prone to rollovers resulting from tire blowouts because they are top heavy and therefore less stable than regular vehicles. The Majlessi Law Firm uses the best experts in the industry to face the biggest challenges in this type of litigation.

Tire blowout or shredding is often a result of poor manufacturing processes by the tire industry. The intense pricing competition of tires too often means that manufacturers do anything to cut costs, resulting in unsafe tires. This blatant unconcern for the safety of their customers, families and innocent bystanders is inexcusable. This is complicated by SUV's that are already prone to instability and rollover. In both cases, the tire manufacturer and the SUV manufacturer can be held liable because of their knowledge that their products were defective in design and unreasonably dangerous and should know that a personal injury can result of their neglegence.
 
If you, your family or loved ones were involved in an auto accident caused by tire failure and rollover, please call us now. There is no charge or obligation for our review of your case. We look forward to helping you and your family who have been injured get the money you need and deserve.

The Majlessi Law Firm represents victims of medical negligence and their families for claims brought against their doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes.

When you go to the doctor's office, or have surgery, you have every right to expect that your medical issues will be taken care of in a professional, ethical manner. Usually that is the case. However too often a patient leaves the hospital worse than when they came in -- all due to the neglegence or incompentence of the medical staff. The consequences of a misdiagnosed medical condition or a botched operation, due to medical malpractice, have long lasting physical and emotional effects. The continual pain both physical and emotional can be ongoing and debilitating. If you have suffered because of the malpractice of a doctor, hospital or other medical facility you need to contact us immediately so that we can get you the money to help you recover, money to help you pay the bills, rehabilitation, obtain occupational retraining if necessary, and any other financial assistance that you deserve because of neglect in a hospital facility.

No matter what issue you have suffered due to medical malpractice, our legal staff has the experience to investigate, diagnose and litigate every aspect of doctor and medical staff mistakes. This includes surgery mistakes, birth injuries, drug perscrption errors, mistakes by the anesthesialogists, and all other malpractice in a medical setting. If your doctor failed to diagnose a medical condition you also deserve to be compensated.

It is shocking that medical care in our country can be unsafe. We expect the highest standards of training from our medical professionals and when they fail us and we are in fact injured by the medical staff the consequences are devistatiing. We can be injured or crippled for life. Too often medical institutions are only concerned to cut costs. Hospitals try to cut costs by reducing nursing staff, limiting pre-diagnosis tests, and overworking doctors. The shocking statistics from medical malpractice suits indicate that nearly 100,000 people die in major "respected" hospitals every year. Some studies indicate that more people are injured and killed in hospitals than in auto accidents.

Sometimes medical malpractice can be defined as "accidental". Other times malpractice occurs due to the lack of proper training or incompentence of the hospital staff. In either case it is the patient who suffers in the long term. Without an experienced malpractice lawyer to protect your rights you are at the mercy of the insurance companies who do not have your best interests in mind. Whatever your medical malpractice case may be, call us today and we will make sure you get the money you need and deserve.

The Majlessi Lawn Firm is highly experienced in all areas of medical malpractice. We have the staff, the expert witnesses and years of expereince to make sure that you get the money you deserve. Please contact us today.

School bus accidents in the news:

NATIONAL COALITION OF SCHOOL BUS SAFETY NEWS 2007

Keeping Kids Safe on the School Bus

School buses are getting a lot of attention lately because of a string of accidents. In the past month there have been accidents in cities across the nation.. In addition to these accidents there were many other minor ones.

One of those accidents happened this week in Waterloo. The school bus was taking a load of students to Central Middle School Tuesday morning when it had to stop quickly for a snow plow and then got rear-ended by a small pick-up.

Tuesday's bus accident is described as minor by police and the school, but one parent we talked to claims the school didn't take appropriate action soon enough. At the time of the accident, only one student complained of pain, he was cleared by the school nurse.

But Jacquet Wilder's daughter was sore later that night.

"I said what's rang and she said I got into a bus accident today. And I got hysterical and I said are you okay. And I can't believe I didn't get any contact and I immediately checked my cell phone and my house phone to see if I had any messages I missed," said Wilder.

Doctors diagnosed 12-year-old Brooklyn Lee with a strained muscle in her back and neck area. She's been out of school since Wednesday and starts physical therapy next week.

Before reading the rest of this, please remember that only a licensed and experienced medical care professional can diagnose a brain injury. A brain injury can occur as a result of an automobile accident or any other kind of personal injury, especially if you have struck your head or have been violently jolted.

Please contact our office immediately if you or someone you love may have suffered a brain injury. In addition you must seek medical care. If you don't have a doctor we will make recommendations to you. Brain injuries do not get better by themselves and can be highly dangerous. A traumatic brain injury can lead to long lasting, irreparable, debilitating disability. Additionally, if you do not seek immediate medical attention the other side will use that to argue that you were not injured as a result of the incident that caused your injury.

Have You Suffered A Traumatic Brain Injury In California?

Please discuss all your symptoms with your doctor and inform him of the accident you were just involved in. If you have struck your head, have ringing in your ears, bleeding or fluid seeping out of your ears, headaches, loss of memory or any other unusual symptoms please seek emergency care.

Our legal team will work with your doctor as well as our expert witnesses to establish your legal claim against the insurance companies. You may believe that brain injury is something that occurs only as a result of a high speed and violent collision, but this is not true. Research has shown that even low speed car accidents can cause brain injury. If you have any suspicious symptoms seek medical care immediately to rule out possible brain injury.

Brain injury can occur with a blow to the head, but can also occur without one. If you are thrown about violently the brain itself can hit the inside of your skull, causing bruising, bleeding, tearing or swelling.

A mild brain injury may not be readily apparent immediately after an accident, yet can still cause a person long lasting disabilities. If you have lost consciousness, even briefly, make sure to see a doctor immediately and notify him or her of this fact.

If a child was involved in a vehicle collision or was in any way involved in an accident where they hit their head or were jolted please seek medical care for that child. Small children have trouble articulating their symptoms, may not be aware of what has happened to them, and may not recognize their own injuries.

Symptoms of Brain Injury

Some symptoms to be aware of include:

  • Mild Injury- bad or off tastes in the mouth, behavioral or mood changes, blurred vision or eyes that seem tired all the time, dizziness or lightheadedness, fatigue, headaches, lapses in memory, ringing in the ears, sleep pattern changes, or trouble concentrating or thinking.
  • Moderate Injury- convulsions or seizures, dilated pupils in one or both eyes, episodes of nausea and vomiting, headache that becomes increasingly more painful or fails to go away, heightened levels of agitation or restlessness, loss of coordination, slurred speech, trouble waking from sleep, or weakness or the feeling of numbness in one or more extremities.
  • Severe Injury- Fluids or blood seeping from the ears, loss of consciousness, stupor, or obvious physical injury to the head.

The Majlessi Law Firm has had extensive experience in successfully litigating Passenger Van rollover accidents. Fifteen and twelve-passenger vans and other large vans are widely used by churches and community organizations. Colleges use them to drive sports teams to games. Over 500,000 are in use in the United States. According to government statistics, over 1,200 fatal crashes have occurred involving the large, heavy vans since 1990.

Studies show that in almost 85% of vehicle accidents involving 15-passenger vans that resulted in deaths, the vans rolled over. Van manufacturers are aware that their vans have design defects or seatbelt problems. Still they offer the vans for sale, knowing that they are unreasonably dangerous and could cause serious injury and death when they roll over. Large passenger vans of 12 or more people have automotive design defects that increase the risk of rollover in the event of a collision.

If you or a member of your family has been involved or injured in a passenger van rollover accident call us now. There is no charge or obligation for our review of your case. We look forward to helping you and your family who have been injured get the money you need and deserve.

An auto accident can result in serious injuries as well as pain and suffering.  Too often when there is an auto accident the injuries can be made worse because of a defective vehicle part or overall design flaws in the automobile.  Sometimes even safety devices which are supposed to protect the driver and passengers malfunction during an accident.

 

When you contact our offices we will investigate the accident thoroughly including the possibility of suing the auto manufacturer or its suppliers if their defective or malfunctioning parts increased your injuries or caused death.  That is why it is important that you contact The Majlessi Law Firm as soon as possible after an auto accident, for a free consultation about your legal options.

Because auto accidents is one of or main specialties, we don't limit our investigations to only the conduct of the other driver. We investigate to see if there were other circumstances involved in the inuries or death. If we determine that the vehicle manufacturer was also at fault we include them in the lawsuit.

  • Airbag malfunction
  • Seat-belt malfunction
  • Windshield glass breakage
  • Overall structural weakness
  • Mistakes in the installation of the vehicle roof
  • Separation of tread in tires
  • Defective child safety seats

Being involved in a vehicle accident is a traumatic experience both physically and emotionally. And when manufacturers make the accident worse because of a product defect, they need to be held liable for your injuries. So in addition to filing a lawsuit against the other driver, we will determine if suing the vehicle manufacturer is appropriate. This could be the other driver's vehicle or your own vehicle.  Filing an additional lawsuit against the manufacturer is worthwhile because not only will you be justly compensated for your injuries, it will also help make vehicles safer overall. And by suing the manufacturer in addition to the other driver, if appropriate, the compensation for your injuries will be greater to cover your medical expenses and other loses.

For a free consultation about your options in an automobile product liability case contact us today.

Spinal cord injuries typically cause lifelong disabilities. The Majlessi Law Firm can help anyone suffering from spinal cord injuries because of others' negligence get the money they need for lifelong medical treatment.

Spinal cord injury is a term used to describe any injury to the spinal cord that results in a loss of sensation or function in the body. Approximately two million people worldwide and nearly 200,000 in the United States live with a spinal cord injury. Nearly 11,000 Americans sustain spinal cord injuries each year. These medical personal injuries cost the nation an estimated $9.7 billion a year.

Any trauma that compresses pushes sideways, or cuts the spinal cord may cause spinal cord injuries. A severed spinal cord cannot be repaired. Car and motorcycle accidents, gunshot and knife wounds, falls, and sports injuries are the most common causes of damage to the spinal cord. In fact, nearly half of the estimated 7,800 non-fatal spinal cord injuries that occur each year are the result of motor vehicle accidents. Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents. In whiplash, an injury to the neck results from sudden backward and forward motion that can cause chronic pain and reduced range of motion.
