Pasadena Personal Injury Lawyers – Handling All Types of Claims

A personal injury claim can be an excellent means of obtaining justice and allowing victims to recover damages and move forward with their lives. Various types of accidents happen each and every day, but those occurring due to negligence, malice, or misconduct deserve proper financial compensation. Regardless of whether or not the party or entity responsible for your injury is held liable in criminal court, a civil lawsuit can be a means of both pursuing justice and securing financial compensation.

Personal injury law cases can include: car accidents, truck accidents, slip/trip and falls, wrongful death claims, dog bites, medical malpractice, premises liability claims, TBI or spinal cord injuries, and much more.

In addition to handling all types of personal injury claims, Dordulian Law Group’s (DLG) Pasadena Offices represent survivors of sexual assault and abuse. For information on filing a Pasadena sexual assault or abuse claim, please visit our SAJE Team (Sexual Assault Justice Experts) page for more information.

What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, there are more than 400,000 personal injury lawsuits filed every year. Personal injury claims are one of the most common type of lawsuit seen in the American justice system. Approximately 16,300 of those claims reach the courtroom annually (although the vast majority actually settle out-of-court without having to go to trial).

The three most common types of personal injury lawsuits handled by DLG’s Pasadena personal injury lawyers include:

  • Accidents: There are dozens of types of accidents that can leave you injured, including medical malpractice, motor vehicle collisions, slip and falls, dog bites, and many others.
  • Intentional harmful acts: This type of lawsuit stems from a person intentionally causing harm to another, typically through a battery, rape, physical assault, sex crime, and more.
  • Defective products: If you were injured by a defective product, you might be eligible to file a lawsuit.

What Type of Accidents Quality for a Personal Injury Claim?

The personal injury umbrella includes a variety of potential accident scenarios. Some common incidents which lead to the recovery of substantial financial compensation may include:

What Types of Damages Can I Recover in a Pasadenta Personal Injury Lawsuit?

  • Car accidents: Motor vehicle accidents can lead to serious injuries and even death. Suffering an injury in a car accident can trigger a personal injury claim, no matter who was at fault.
  • Truck accidents: Tractor trailers and eighteen wheelers commonly traverse California’s often dangerous roads and highways. When a truck accident occurs, negligence is often involved and can entitle you as the injured victim to substantial financial compensation.
  • Bus accidents: Public transportation is a great way to save money and help the environment when living or working in Pasadena, California. However, a bus accident can lead to serious injuries. In addition to the bus driver, the manufacturer of the bus, the insurance company, and the bus company could all be named as defendants in a lawsuit.
  • Dog bites: Being bitten by a dog can be a traumatic experience. Regardless of their training, dogs can still attack in certain situations. Accordingly, the dog’s owner can be held liable for attacks and/or bites.
  • Slip & falls: Slipping and falling on someone else’s property (or a public place) can lead to a personal injury lawsuit. Spills, leaks, broken flooring, and rickety steps can cause anyone to suffer this type of injury.
  • Bicycle accidents: Riding a bicycle is a great way to stay healthy. However, riding a bike in the city of Pasadena can be quite dangerous. Drivers don’t always look out for vulnerable bicyclists.
  • Defective products: You put your trust in the products you purchase. If a product malfunctions and causes you to suffer an injury, you can file a lawsuit against the product manufacturer, advertiser, retailer, and other entities (depending on the specific circumstances).
  • Uber and Lyft accidents: Rideshare services are a convenient means of transportation for many. An accident while in a rideshare vehicle may permit you to file a Pasadena personal injury claim against the driver, the rideshare company, and the insurance companies involved.
  • Motorcycle accidents: It’s not easy to spot motorcycles on the roads of Pasadena. Drivers don’t always pay attention, leading to serious collisions that often cause traumatic brain injury, amputation, paralysis, and death.
  • Brain injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can occur as a result of many different accidents (car, motorcycle, bus, slip and fall, etc.).
  • Wrongful death: The loss of a loved one because of someone else’s negligence can lead to a wrongful death claim.
  • Premises liability: Property owners are required to keep their properties safe and free of hazards at all times. If you are injured on someone else’s property and you were legally allowed to be there, you could be eligible for a personal injury claim.
  • Airbnb/Vrbo accident injuries: Slip and falls, dog bites, and even sexual assaults occur regularly at these types of properties.

Contact an experienced and compassionate Pasadena personal injury attorney at DLG immediately following your incident. We’ll listen to the facts of tour case, launch a thorough investigation led by our in-house Chief Investigator (a retired LAPD detective), and develop a precise but aggressive legal strategy for you based on our years of experience and past success.

What is California’s Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims?

There is a statute of limitations in place whenever filing a personal injury claim in California. The deadline for the majority of claims is two years from the date of the injury or incident. However, California allows for exceptions to this rule in rare cases, while in others the statute of limitations is actually much shorter (in government entity cases the deadline can be just six months).

Accordingly, it is recommended that file your claim as soon as possible. With the assistance of a Pasadena personal injury lawyer from DLG, your claim will be filed timely and in accordance with all laws and regulations.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover in a Pasadena Personal Injury Lawsuit?

The main goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to recover damages for your injuries. When you suffer an injury because someone else was negligent, you should not be responsible for covering medical bills, surgeries, renovations to your home if you are wheelchair-bound, therapy, or any other related expenses.

The Pasadena personal injury attorneys from DLG will evaluate your case and explain which types of damages you are eligible to recover when filing a personal injury lawsuit. There are four main categories of recoverable damages in a personal injury claim:

  • Monetary damages: These damages are the most common in a personal injury lawsuit and include compensation for medical bills, ambulatory services, lost wages, property damage, and any other expense related to your injury.
  • Special damages: Special damages are only present in certain cases, including those where the victim was injured so badly that he or she is unable to return to the workforce. Special damages can include rent, lost income, relocation costs, car bills, and more.
  • Punitive damages: Punitive damages are very rare in personal injury cases, as many criteria must be met. These specific damages are awarded by a judge in an effort to punish the defendant for any particularly heinous actions. For punitive damages to be awarded, your personal injury attorney must prove that the defendant acted purposely and with the intent to cause an injury, including wanton disregard for another’s well-being.
  • Wrongful death: These damages take effect when the victim of the accident did not survive and the family members left behind wish to file a claim for negligence or ill intent. When negligence or harm leads to a wrongful death, your family can obtain compensation for the decedent’s medical bills, funeral expenses, burial, loss of income, and more.

The types of damages you can recover in a personal injury case can vary based on the specific facts of the incident, including degree of responsibility, severity of injuries, type of injuries, etc. That’s why it is important to seek legal counsel from a qualified Pasadena personal injury lawyer from DLG.

How Does Comparative Fault Affect a Personal Injury Case?

I was injured in an accident but share some liability.
Can I still recover financial damages from the other party?

The short answer to this question is “yes.,” as California is a pure comparative fault state. However, your role in the accident must be fairly determined. Moreover, in the event that you were partly responsible, a correlating percentage of blame will be assigned to both parties.

For example, if the court assigns you 10% blame for a car accident, any award you receive would then likely be reduced by 10%. With the help of an experienced Pasadena personal injury lawyer from DLG, we will gather all necessary evidence and develop a strategy to help rightly prove that you were not at fault for the accident.


How Long Does it Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim?

There is no definite timetable for settling a personal injury claim or reaching a verdict in cases that go to trial. Each case is different and there are various factors that can play a role in how much time is required to reach a conclusion. The willingness of the defendant to negotiate can delay the outcome of a claim and may require that your case be brought to trial. This is a rare scenario, however, as most cases are settled out of court.

At DLG, we always strive to bring your claim to a successful conclusion as soon possible.

When a settlement or verdict is reached, you will be issued a check anywhere from 60 to 120 days following the agreement being reached. In order to receive the check, you will need to sign a release stating you will not seek legal action against the defendant in the future for this specific incident.

The Dordulian Law Group Pasadena personal injury attorney representing your claim will receive the check. It will then be deposited into a trust account at the firm and a check will be sent to you from that account shortly thereafter. For a full description of the settlement check recipient process, please see our recent blog.

Will Insurance Cover My Personal Injury Claim?

It is in your best interest to only work with an experienced and compassionate Pasadena personal injury attorney from DLG. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, which means issuing the lowest possible damages award to you for any injuries or expenses. At DLG, we are familiar with all the tactics insurance companies will use to reduce a payout. Our team of dedicated professionals includes former insurance industry insiders who have years of experience fighting against injured victims. Now, those same industry insiders are fighting for you as a member of DLG’s dedicated team.

After an unfortunate injury, the insurance company will make every effort to award you the lowest possible settlement. Often, this is done without even knowing the full extent of your injuries or the circumstances surrounding the incident. You should never make a statement to an insurance adjuster without first speaking to a personal injury attorney from DLG.

Do I Really Need a Pasadena Personal Injury Attorney?

While it may seem like proving your personal injury claim may be a straightforward process, having a skilled and experienced attorney like Sam Dordulian can make a significant difference in:

  • The likelihood of recovering financial compensation
  • The likelihood that the ultimate financial damages you receive are maximized

A study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) found that settlements were 40% higher when injured claimants had private legal representation. Additionally, IRC research indicates that the average insurance payout is 3.5 times higher for clients who have hired a private attorney than for those representing themselves. Finally, the IRC report found that 85% of all money paid by insurance companies for bodily injuries is received by clients who have secured representation from a private personal injury attorney like Sam Dordulian and his skilled and proven team of lawyers at DLG.
