Understand What We Do … and Don’t When It Comes to Your Case
On screen, personal injury lawyers seem to fall into two camps.
There are those who can be found hovering around the scene of a horrific accident, passing out business cards from the pockets of their cheap suits (usually in brown or 1970s plaids). Most of the time you can recognize these cinematic characters by their terrible haircuts or the cigars that leave ashes on the hero or all over the actual courtroom. They often talk fast, and seem to eat a lot of greasy deli sandwiches, too.
Then we have the movie hero personal injury attorneys. These characters are played by A-listers like John Travolta or Denzel Washington, and they usually spend a lot of time staring off into the horizon, grappling with huge moral issues and swigging scotch, writing ideas down on crumpled pieces of paper in empty airport bars late at night.
As much as we’d love to say we’re like the latter group of actors (and of course we’re always committed to pursuing the rights of the victimized and otherwise forgotten), the truth is, most of our work here in West Covina, Long Beach and Pasadena is pretty straightforward. We don’t seem to need a lot of horizon gazing, though it’s nice to know we can if we have to, and of course, we NEVER eat greasy sandwiches.
So then, you ask, what is it we actually do?
Personal Injury Law Is About Seeking Legal Remedies for Losses.
As personal injury attorneys, we seek compensation for clients who have endured a loss or harm as a result of an accident, negligence, intentional or careless act. This means we use legal means to recover money to cover your medical care and treatment, lost income, pain and suffering or in the worst kind of cases, loss of life.
Examples of injuries we handle include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, negligence issues or even defective products.
Long Beach, Pasadena and West Covina Personal Injury Law Doesn’t Mean a Trial in All Cases.
No two personal injury situations are exactly alike, but generally, personal injury attorneys follow pretty standard steps in handling your case. Done correctly, this litigation usually leads to a satisfactory outcome for you and your loved ones. Handled poorly, you can endure months of legal runarounds, endless court cases, and a financial result that doesn’t address the losses you suffered in the first place.
That’s where a good personal injury lawyer comes into play (see the second group of movie attorneys above). At Manibog Law, we treat every case seriously, as if it will go to trial. Unlike some lawyers (see greasy sandwich group, described above), we don’t just take the first settlement offered by the insurance companies because it’s expedient or easier. Instead, we treat our clients as we ourselves would like to be treated. We pursue your case to the full extent the law allows.
If you’ve suffered an injury or loss because of something someone else did, chances are you should talk to us. If you’ve endured a car accident, a fall, or had a loved one pass away from negligence or carelessness of another person, company or organization, get in touch. Your health, your emotional well being and even your financial future may well depend on it.
Consultations are discreet, and free! Call us today to set up an appointment. And see you at the movies! 1-800-MANIBOG.
