PERSONAL INJURY LAW for OVER 45 YEARS! We Have Won Over 98% of Our Cases*

California dog bite injuries can be very serious and traumatic events. Recently, Robert Walch resolved a Los Angeles dog bite injury claim for $300,000 at Mediation. A lawsuit had to be filed on this case as the other party denied that the bite even occurred, despite the overwhelming evidence. It was clear in this case that the dog owner was not being truthful to try to avoid liability.

Through extensive research, our law firm was able to find a prior incident involving the same dog from many years earlier. The defendants denied that there were any prior incidents and this was just one of numerous lies that defendants represented in this case. It is a shame that the defendant dog owners made this case extra difficult by repeatedly lying, even when under the penalty of perjury. Had they just been truthful, this dog bite injury claim would have been resolved much sooner for our client.

In this particular incident, our client did nothing wrong, but he was bit by the defendants’ dog, which caused not only physical injuries, but also emotional injuries due to the scarring. This is an important element to dog bite claims, as sometimes the victim requires psychiatric therapy to deal with the injuries and their altered appearance.

Our California personal injury lawyers were referred a case from a lawyer in Texas who attempted to handle a Riverside freeway truck accident, where one truck side swiped another truck. The client originally hired a law firm in Texas as he lives in Texas and received his medical treatment there. The insurance for the truck denied the claim and said that there was no injury as the police report listed the damage to the vehicles as “minor”. Since the prior attorney was not able to get an offer from the truck company, he referred the case to our firm.

Our firm filed a lawsuit against the truck company that caused the accident and we litigated the case. After some litigation, our attorney was able to settle the case at Mediation for $100,000.00 for our client. There are certain situations where the insurance company for the responsible party doesn’t take a case seriously until a lawsuit is filed and they realize that they face exposure at trial. This was one of those cases and the mediator helped bring all the parties together towards a fair resolution for our client.

If you are injured in Texas, contact us right away and we will guide you in the right direction towards an attorney who will fight hard for you to get you the best result possible. Handling a case in Texas is different from California for many reasons. Knowing the local system and rules is important. We can help you get the guidance you need for your Texas injury or wrongful death claim.

Our California personal injury law firm has been handling serious injury and wrongful death cases for over 45 years. We have gotten many results over $1,000,000.00 for our clients and have helped thousands of injury victims and the families of wrongful death victims get the justice that they deserve. Sometimes it is not always the biggest results that make us happy, but the particularly good results.

Recently, our client was driving in Beverly Hills when she was t-boned by another vehicle. Her side airbags went off and she suffered numerous injuries. The insurance company for the other driver made things difficult and we had to file a lawsuit. Fortunately, the Beverly Hills car accident was caught on video and the video shows that the other party ran the red light!

By fighting for our client in litigation, the insurance company for the other party offered its policy limits of $50,000.00.  Of course we have many higher settlement amounts, but when we get the full policy limits from the other party’s insurance, it always feels nice.  Fortunately, on this particular case, our client has $100,000.00 in uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage. In California, that means that our client’s own insurance gets a write off for the $50,000.00 that is obtained from the other party and that $50,000.00 additional underinsured motorist money is available for our client. Accordingly, a total of $100,000.00 will be the maximum gross obtainable settlement on this case.

Mediation is a very important tool for resolving California car accident injury and wrongful death claims. Recently, we settled a Riverside rear end car accident injury claim at mediation for $550,000. Robert Walch was the attorney handling this matter in our firm. We used an experienced former judge as our mediator in this case. If you need help with a mediation, let us know.

Usually mediations are a tool used during the litigation process for resolving disputes. However, sometimes, as was the case in this particular matter, no lawsuit was filed and this was considered a pre-litigation mediation. By doing the mediation pre-litigation, both parties were able to save a lot of money in litigation costs, which was beneficial to our client.

Also, nobody knows what will happen in litigation or in a trial. By settling without litigation, the client also saves the time that would have to be used for responding to discovery, preparing and having his or her deposition taken, appearing at a Defense Medical Examination, etc. Our approach to resolving claims is that if we can get full value from our client without the time and expenses of litigation, we will happily do that for our client, but it must be full value. If the insurance company thinks that they will get a discount for resolving a claim before litigation, then they are mistaken.

We will be publishing some of our notable recent successful results that we have obtained for some of our clients on this blog. Of course, we will keep all of the private details confidential. If you would like to see a list of many of our notable settlements and verdicts, please click here for our Case Results page on our California personal injury lawyers website.

Our client, who is in her 80s, was driving her vehicle when she was rear ended in Los Angeles. Our firm helped our client obtain the medical care that she needed, including chiropractic care and pain management. Our managing partner, Robert Walch, was able to negotiate a $275,000 settlement for her, without litigation, as she did not want our firm to file a lawsuit due to her age.

Sometimes filing a lawsuit is absolutely necessary on a case, while sometimes it can be avoided by way of a fair settlement pre-litigation. In this case, given our client’s age, we agreed that settling for $275,000 was the right move for our client. Since our client’s medical bills were not very high, she ended up with a very nice check and was very happy with the result and her net financial recovery.

Some of our readers may be familiar with some of the awful scams run on folks in Los Angeles and California.   There is one scam where the victim (often referred to as the mark) is promised a new Mercedes (and maybe even some cash too), and all they have to do is pay a few thousand dollars upfront for the delivery.  Guess what, the Mercedes never comes.

Another older scam, actually perpetrated many years ago on an elderly relative of a member of our personal injury law firm occurred when the victim received a call that his nephew had been arrested, and money was necessary for bail.  Of course the nephew, supposedly in jail, could not be reached to expose the scam.  The nephew was never arrested much less in jail and the bail money was gone.

Still another scam occurs when the scammer requests someone else cash a check (making up some reason why the scammer cannot do it, e.g., ID lost, etc.), and that although the check is counterfeit it appears quite genuine, and the mark is promised a few hundred dollars for his or her time.  The check appears good, so good that the teller cashes it for many thousands of dollars, then the mark gives all the money to the scammer, less a few hundred dollars for the mark’s services, but then a few days to a few weeks later the bank discovers the fraud and withdraws funds from the mark’s own account to cover the bad check, leaving the mark out many thousands of dollars.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that on Saturday night, April 20, 2024, around 9 p.m., at least 15 tourists riding the popular back lot tram ride at Universal City Studios were injured when the motorized tram vehicle they were riding on hit something and then tipped, causing many of the tram’s riders to be thrown from the ride.

The exact details and causes of this California amusement park injury incident are currently under investigation by the CHP, including possible driver negligence, vehicle brake failure and other causes.  Meanwhile, reportedly at least 15 of the tram riders were taken to a local hospital emergency room, with unspecified injuries.  So far Universal seems to be taking the position that the injuries ranged only from minor to moderate, yet at least 15 riders were taken to the hospital.

Meanwhile, each of these injured tram riders have the right to make a claim against Universal Studios for all their injuries and damages, and may receive an absolutely FREE consultation and case evaluation by a very experienced law firm with over 45 years of experience handling serious injury and wrongful death accident claims simply by clicking here.
