Not All Personal Injury Attorneys Are Created Equal

Maybe you have seen hundreds or even thousands of TV commercials, billboards and other advertisements for personal injury lawyers and thought to yourself that it's something that happens to other people. Until it happens to you — or someone you love. A serious injury occurs due to someone else's negligence and you find yourself battling that person's insurance company (or maybe your own) to recover the full amount you deserve.

If you find yourself in this situation — one you never thought you would deal with — it can be difficult to determine where to turn to for help. At The Kaufman Law Firm in Westlake Village, I provide highly personalized legal counsel to individuals who are injured in an accident and unable to resolve a dispute with an insurance company.

I represent clients in a wide range of personal injury cases, including those involving:

  • Car and truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents and other premises liability lawsuits
  • Construction site accidents
  • Product liability cases

What You Need From Your Personal Injury Attorney

The unending stream of TV advertisements and other marketing messages from injury attorneys throughout Los Angeles make it nearly impossible to know who to turn to for legal guidance. Here are some simple yet critical characteristics to look for in the lawyer you select:

Personal attention — Like insurance companies themselves, many law firms promote a caring approach to gain your business, but prove to be less than advertised once you hire them. I am a solo practitioner who works with every client directly from start to finish.

Courtroom experience — The only way to truly put insurance company representatives on notice that you are serious about recovering the full amount you deserve is to enlist the services of a lawyer who will go to trial if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiations. I have extensive litigation experience in a wide range of cases.

Deep resources — Personal injury lawsuits can stretch out over months or even years. You need to make sure your attorney has the resources to build strong cases. I work with accident reconstruction specialists, highly regarded medical professionals and other experts who will support your case and testify on your behalf in court if necessary.

I Should Be One Of The First Calls You Make

Too often, perfectly legitimate personal injury claims are weakened or even ruined because an injured party says something wrong to a police officer, an insurance company representative, a treating physician or someone else. It is always a good idea to have me be among the first calls you make following an injury accident so you do not fall into this trap.

I will communicate with all insurance company representatives on your behalf, make sure you get the medical care you need and that you recover all of the important reports that will support your claim.
