Los Angeles Accident Attorney with Vehicle Crash Focus

Focused Los Angeles Auto Accident Practice is Key

What do we mean by “focused practice”?

When deciding when to hire an accident lawyer in Los Angeles, think of this.  If a lawyer does criminal work, car accident work, workers’ compensation work, toxic torts, mass torts, and medical malpractice work, or any other expansive combination of practice areas, that lawyer is like a restaurant that serves sushi and Italian food.  If you want the best sushi, you won’t go to that combo-restaurant.  That combo-restaurant’s sushi may be decent, but it’s not the best sushi money can buy.

Accident Lawyer Los Angeles With Vehicle FocusThe same is true of lawyers.  Except the best accident lawyers in Los Angeles all charge the same attorneys’ fees.

That means you can get the best sushi money can buy, but not spend an extra penny on that purchase, simply by hiring a Los Angeles accident attorney that devotes close to all of his or her accident related work to being a motor vehicle related accident claims.

Our Los Angeles Lawyers are Focused in the Area You Need Help

You will note that our website has more in depth of substantive, analytical information about vehicle accidents, claims, and injuries than any other lawyer website.  This is because we are a more niche motor vehicle accident practice.

Why is depth important?  Because any Los Angeles lawyer, or lawyer referral service, can publish generic content on their website or discuss surface layers of handling an auto accident case.

Granular analysis, however, can only happen with a true motor vehicle accident lawyer who has above-par depth of knowledge in a specific practice area.  For example, with back injuries, will you get more for a thoracic disc bulg or a lumbar disc bulg?  The answer is not a medical one.  The answer rests in how those injuries can be framed in the context of other intangible facts that only a dedicated accident lawyer will know.

We invite you to review the content on our website.  You will appreciate that for each topic of information we analyze how different information concerning that topic can have differing impacts on a vehicle accident case.  This is the essence of granular analysis.  This is the difference in what we bring to the table for you.

Gain An Advantage With Our Accident Lawyers in Los Angeles

The way you separate the good from the best is depth of knowledge.  As dedicated vehicle injury consultants, we dig deep into the nuance of your auto accident claim.

Said differently, we know more about how to handle automobile accident cases than combo-practice lawyers because all our time is invested in learning more about niche sub-issues for those cases.  Our focus, and attention, is not spread out across numerous practice areas.

This gives us an edge in numerous ways, including:

   We are familiar with the automobile insurance company’s adjusters

   We are familiar with the automobile insurance company’s regular law firms

   We are familiar with auto-related defense arguments from the defense organizations

   We study and are familiar with updated litigation techniques for auto cases

   We have a deeper knowledge base for case results and determining case range values

As a result, our vehicle accident litigation experience is more granular, discovery and investigation of vehicle accident cases is more focused, and we have refined our litigation techniques to expose vehicle accident strengths and weaknesses at a more nuanced and complete depth than combo-practice lawyers.

If you were injured in a vehicle accident, we invite you to call and utilize the depth of knowledge held by an accident attorney in Los Angeles on our team to get an edge in resolving your accident claim.

Los Angeles Accident Lawyer Familiar With All Crash Types

Why Specific Auto Accident Type Experience Matters

Not every auto accident lawyer in Los Angeles has experience with every accident type.  Do not let any lawyer convince you that this is not important.

To maximize the value of a case, there are specific things that should be done in pickup-truck accidents with a tow-hitch, or armored truck accidents depending on which company it is, or motorcycle accidents.  In fact, depending on the type of motorcycle you were driving during an accident, different approaches are needed to ensure you get a fair result; i.e., not all motorcycle accident claims should be handled the same.

If the Los Angeles lawyers you hire have not before handled the type of accident involved in your case, you are paying them to drive your case with training wheels on.  That is not a risk you should take, because you only get one chance to get it right with your case.

Our Los Angeles Lawyers Have Experience with Every Vehicle Accident Type

Whether you were hurt in a car accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, or motorcycle accident, if you were hurt in Los Angeles and a vehicle was involved, we can help you.  Here is the full list of auto accident cases for which we can represent you:

Accident Lawyer Los Angeles With Varied Experience

  Pedestrian Accidents

  Bicycle Accidents

  Motorcycle Accidents

  E-Scooter Accidents

  Uber Accidents

  Lyft Accidents

  Car Accidents

  Pickup Truck Accidents

  Truck Accidents

  Bus Accidents

If you were injured in one of these accident types, we invite you to call us, e-mail us, or send us a chat so we can help you recover the money you deserve for being hurt by someone else’s negligence.

The only accident type our lawyers have not handled is e-scooter accidents.  The reason is those cases rarely have a means of recovery due to the way insurance works in those cases.  We remain hopeful that the insurance laws will improve in that area to protect e-scooter riders in the near future.

Los Angeles Accident Lawyer Who Knows Your Injuries

“Personal Injury” v. “Your Specific Injury”

When you hire an auto injury lawyer, you may not give thought to the word “injury.”  That word has a specific application in your case.

Within each practice area, there is additional refinement in terms of injury familiarity.  For example, not all auto auto accident lawyers are familiar with:

   Thoracic outlet syndrome

   How an ACDF surgery creates a permanent condition worth more compensation

   Spondylosis’ impact on susceptibility to injury

The challenge here is, your lawyer doesn’t know what she or he doesn’t know.  This means a lawyer may be experienced in auto accident claims, be familiar with your accident type, but still not be the best lawyer to help you because of unfamiliarity with your injury type.

A classic and reoccurring example is degenerative disc disease.  This is a common finding in many MRI reports.  Consider whether the lawyer you want to hire knows:

   How to distinguish between multi-level degenerative disc disease and multi-level acute disc herniations?

   How identify a dehydrated disc in an MRI?

   How to correlate peripheral radiculopathy with specific impinged levels of the spine?

   How to distinguish between nerve damage and nerve impingement based on diagnostic test results?

If you hired a lawyer who does not know the answer to these questions, and any of your medical records say you have degenerative disc disease, you should be very concerned.

Medical Knowledge for Any Los Angeles Accident Attorney is Important

Large Medical Library.  At Injury Advocates Group, we have a digital medical library with 1,000+ scientific medical journals, and 2,000+ medical texts.  When a client has a specific injury, many lawyers leave the medical issues to the expert doctors, and trust the doctors to rubber stamp any medical causation questions.  We do not do that.  We work with our expert witnesses, help refine their opinions, and ensure their opinions are backed by medical evidence.

Familiar with the Injuries.  Our legal team is well versed on the above issues, and is on standby to help you if you need an auto accident injury lawyer in Los Angeles to protect your claim.

We Study the Medicine.  Our Los Angeles lawyers are intimately familiar with spine injuries, discogenic injuries, bone remodeling, how to distinguish old age from an acute injury (a common insurance adjuster argument), how to review diagnostic imaging, and a host of other medical issues.  We not only know these issues, but regularly study these medical issues to stay up-to-date on the medical issues you face after an accident.  This gives us an edge in discovery, and in cutting through the excuses that insurance adjusters use to justify low offers.

Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles With Jurisdictional Familiarity

If you were injured in Los Angeles, you will benefit from a Los Angeles accident attorney who is actually in the Los Angeles area.  It sounds straightforward, but is worth highlighting.

Consider this, it is common practice for personal injury lawyers to hire “local counsel” when they have a big case outside of their normal practice jurisdiction.  Why?  Because each jurisdiction has unique procedural rules, and each judge has a unique personality.

Accident Lawyer Los Angeles With Jurisdictional Familiarity

You need a legal team familiar with local rules for Los Angeles courts, and who has insight on the different Los Angeles judges who may end up with your case.
