Palm Desert Personal Injury Lawyer
An accident in Palm Desert could change your life. Broken bones, chronic pain, a permanent brain injury, paralysis, wrongful death…these are just some of the potential accident outcomes you may be facing. If you believe someone else could have prevented your recent accident, but failed to do so, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. A successful claim could result in payment for your damages.
The Liljegren Law Group has significant experience handling Palm Desert personal injury cases. Our San Diego County attorneys can work through the details of your case, determine the defendant, and build your case based on available evidence. We know how to fight for top compensation awards – as our past results prove. If you want to get the most for your claim, contact us. We offer representation for the following practice areas.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
The city of Palm Desert saw 270 injuries and deaths from auto accidents in 2015. Car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents are almost always preventable. It is up to drivers to pay attention to the road, obey traffic laws, and reasonably prevent collisions. Any breach of these duties, resulting in a car accident, is negligence. Although a typical insurance claim could repay you for your medical costs and property damage repairs, a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent driver could end in compensation for pain and suffering, punitive damages, legal fees, and more. Our lawyers can help you understand your rights.
Slip and Fall Accidents
One of the most common types of premises liability claims we handle is the slip and fall case. A slip, trip, and fall can happen on anyone’s property – but it’s most likely when a negligent property owner fails to search for and remedy hazards and defects. As a victim, take photos of the thing that caused your fall. It may be one of the following common hazards:
- Slippery surfaces
- Spilled liquids
- Inadequate lighting
- Uneven sidewalks
- Loose carpets
- Debris in the walkway
Regardless of what caused your fall, contact us for a consultation. If you suffered serious injuries, you could be able to file a premises liability claim against the negligent property owner. This may lead to recovery for your fall-related damages. We can help you file a claim against the government, a big box store, an amusement park, or another party in Palm Desert. We are the first step in your pursuit of compensation.
Injured on the job? A workers’ compensation claim could automatically result in recovery of your medical costs and a majority of lost wages, without the requirement to prove liability. Workers’ compensation is one of the benefits promised to California workers. It may not, however, be your only outlet for financial recovery.
If someone else caused or contributed to your accident, you may also have grounds to file a personal injury claim. If this is the case, your recovery could be greater than what you could receive through a workers’ comp case alone. Contact us if you think your employer, a coworker, a property manager, a product manufacturer, or another party caused your work-related injury in Palm Desert.
Our Law Group also accepts catastrophic injury claims, or those involving permanent injuries. This includes traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, loss of limb, and multiple bone fractures. Any injury that puts you out of work or requires lifelong medical attention deserves legal attention. Our years of experience uniquely qualify us to fight for maximum compensation for serious, debilitating personal injuries. When you need aggressive attorneys, who won’t take no for an answer, count on us for representation.
Did you lose a beloved family member in a recent Palm Desert accident? Your family could qualify for loss of consortium, medical bill coverage, mental anguish, and other damages through a California civil claim. Hiring our wrongful death attorneys can help you meet deadlines, identify the correct at-fault party, and collect key evidence for your case. We know a financial award won’t bring back your loved one, but it can give surviving family members – such as a spouse and children – financial stability for the future.
