Long Beach Personal Injury Lawyer

With convenient access to local beaches, a variety of community events, and one-of-a-kind features such as The Pike, there are many reasons to enjoy living in or visiting Long Beach. However, all of these events and activities involve traveling congested roadways that are frequented by large trucks transporting goods to and from the port of Long Beach and other locations in and around the city. There are hazards involved on the commercial, residential, and public properties in Long Beach as well, if not mitigated by the owners and managers of these properties. 

Negligence is a common cause of unintentional injuries. If you were injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you can seek compensation for the financial and psychological costs of the injury through California’s personal injury claims process. A Long Beach personal injury lawyer from Younglove Law Group can help you understand this process and the type of services that their legal team can provide to assist you with your claim.

What Types of Accidents Can Result in a Personal Injury Claim?

Nearly every situation, from driving down the street, to visiting a grocery store, to participating in organized beach events features risks of suffering injuries or death. Some of the most common types of accidents that can result in a personal injury claim include:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Long Beach’s port, its proximity to Los Angeles, the heavy use of the roadways by many different types of traffic, and the careless or reckless actions of other roadway users often lead to traffic accidents on the city’s roadways. These accidents can involve any type of motor vehicle, including passenger vehicles, commercial trucks, rideshares or taxis, motorcycles, or city buses. These accidents can also involve vulnerable roadway users including bicyclists and pedestrians.

Premises Liability Matters

Premises liability refers to the responsibility of those who own or control a property to regularly inspect the premises in search of hazards that can cause injuries to guests. When those hazards are discovered, they must either be promptly mitigated or the owner or controller of the property must post a prominent sign warning others of its presence. 

The most common type of premises liability accident to result in a personal injury claim is a slip-and-fall accident. Slip-and-falls occur when a visitor to the property slips or trips on a hazard and falls down. The fall can occur from the same level or from a height. The type of hazards that contribute to this type of accident include liquid or debris on a floor, damaged flooring materials, broken handrails, poor lighting, cracks in paved walkways, obstacles such as electrical cords in walkways, and potholes in parking lots.

Wrongful Death

When an individual dies as a result of an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, the deceased’s family members can seek compensation for the financial and psychological costs of their loss through a wrongful death claim. The type of expenses and impacts that can be sought through a California wrongful death claim include:

  • The costs of a funeral and burial or cremation.
  • The loss of sexual relations, if the claim is asserted by the deceased’s spouse.
  • The loss of services and support provided by the deceased to their family.
  • The loss of comfort, care, society, consortium, affection, and moral support experienced by family members.

Wrongful death is tragic, and while nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one, financial compensation can help a family take care of themselves and move forward. Let a Long Beach personal injury attorney help you with this process.

How Can a Long Beach Personal Injury Lawyer Assist You With Your Claim?

No one is required by law to hire an attorney to help them with a California personal injury or wrongful death claim. However, the guidance, experience, and knowledge a personal injury lawyer provides to the claimant as they navigate this process is crucial to the success of the claim. A Long Beach personal injury attorney can provide a number of important services aimed at ensuring the claimant gets the compensation they need. These services include:

  • A convenient, client-friendly contingent fee billing method that allows personal injury and wrongful death claimants to wait to pay for their attorney’s services until their claim has been successfully resolved, allowing anyone who needs an attorney access to one regardless of their financial status.
  • An investigation to determine all liable parties and the insurance policies they have that can compensate the claim.
  • Establishing a value to the claim that is based on factors such as available insurance, the severity of the injury, and the presence of permanent injuries that will impact the claimant’s future ability to earn an income.
  • Communicating with the at-fault party’s insurer in order to garner a fair settlement offer for the claim.
  • Filing the claim in court as a lawsuit within the two-year statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death claims filed in California.
  • Gathering the evidence and witness testimony needed to prove the claim.
  • Presenting the claim in court.
  • Assisting the claimant in receiving their compensation at the conclusion of the case.

While it would be extraordinarily difficult for a claimant to obtain all of these services on their own in the time provided for filing a claim, a Long Beach personal injury lawyer has a team of professionals to work on the case, making sure that all of the tasks needed to prepare and present the claim are completed.

  • Client satisfaction is our top priority.
  • We pride ourselves on responsiveness and always get back to you the same day you contact us. 
  • We are a real law firm, not a referral service.
  • Your case will be handled by experienced legal professionals
  • Your case will not be passed around with repeated changes to your primary contact.

I cannot begin to describe how helpful Chloe and Phil were during this time! I experienced my first accident ever and I would’ve never imagined it would have gone down so smoothly… They were both very attentive and very informative about everything that was going on, keeping me in the loop with what steps we were on with my case and making sure that I was ok. I’m very grateful for their help and recommend anyone needing an attorney to contact these wonderful people!

I was in a bad accident about a year ago and Brianna was handling my case. She kept in touch with me through the whole process, broke down everything on what was going to happen and answered every question I had! She’s great! I wasn’t expecting to get anything… I’ve never had a lawyer who made sure I was aware of every step of the process! She’s quick to respond and I would recommend her and the company!! Thanks Brianna!! I can’t say enough good things about you!

Mr. Younglove was outstanding in the handling of our case. Even through these pandemic times he was still able to work with the insurance company to make sure my family and I received the medical we needed. Even for my young children. He always checked in to make sure our medical needs were met. And our injuries were being addressed. On top of all that he was able to get my family an outstanding settlement. I would definitely recommend Mr. Younglove to anyone, especially my family and friends.
