Will Ellis Injury Law Take on My Case?

At Ellis Injury Law, our personal injury attorneys handle a wide variety of personal injury cases, ranging from minor injuries, such as a sprained ankle, to the tragic death of a loved one.

Personal injury cases are decided on issues of negligence. The law states that negligence occurs when a reasonable person knew or should have known that a situation was dangerous, was responsible for the situation, had sufficient time to render it safe by fixing or eliminating the situation, and did not do so.

In other words, a careless driver who sees a stop sign but doesn’t stop is likely negligent. A construction company who does not repair a gaping hole for months is negligent. A doctor who overprescribes may be negligent. An owner whose dog bites a child may be negligent. The manufacturer of an exploding toy could be negligent. A landlord who fails to replace burned-out light bulbs is negligent if his tenants cannot see in the dark and fall down a flight of stairs.

If you have been injured by negligent action, you may bring a case to recoup the cost of medical and hospital bills, loss of wages from missed work time, retraining for work, and more.

If a family member has been killed due to negligent action, personal injury law in California provides that other family members can bring a wrongful death suit to recover damages.

We are here to help you recover damages if you were injured or a loved one killed due to negligence.

This is only a partial list. We cover many more types of personal injury and wrongful death.

Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer the Insurance Companies Are Afraid Of — Andy Ellis and His Trusted Team of Attorneys

Insurance companies know they have to settle for the maximum amount with Ellis Injury Law because Andy Ellis will take the case to trial and has the experience to win. Insurance companies will often try to settle medical and vehicle claims for the lowest amount possible. Not when Ellis Injury Law is around.

Andy Ellis also has the experience to handle complex personal injury claims with multiple responsible parties.

Many personal injury and wrongful death cases are not caused by just one person or entity, but by several. Negligent parties in trucking accidents, for example, can include the driver, the company that owns the truck, the maintenance contractor, or any of the contractors who load and unload along the route. If you have been injured by a truck whose brakes failed, the parties liable could be any one or all of these.

When you or a family member suffers a serious injury, you need a personal injury lawyer with the experience to win at trial, and Andy Ellis has demonstrated that expertise over 20 years of practice.

Our personal injury lawyers are experienced with every type of injury and we work with the best medical experts and investigators.

Auto Accident in Bakersfield? Call Our Car Accident Lawyers!

If you or a loved one is in an auto accident, it’s crucial to contact a lawyer at our Bakersfield personal injury law firm location as soon as possible afterward. Evidence for your case is key to winning it. If time is lost, evidence can be lost due to weather, the passage of even a few hours, or people who saw an accident going home without anyone obtaining their contact information. Another driver’s skid marks as he had to slam on the brakes can be washed away by rain. Your injuries and bruises may be less visible the next day. Eyewitness testimony about an un-signaled lane change by the other driver could be lost. All of this evidence needs to be captured as soon as possible.

Andy Ellis and the firm are exceptionally good in car accident cases because of their expert network of investigators, including crash reconstructionists, medical specialists, forensic accountants and more. Here are some of recent money damages we have won for clients in California car accident cases:

  • $3 million for the family of a delivery van driver struck and killed by a truck driver who was asleep at the wheel.
  • $2.9 million for a rear-end collision resulting from an unsafe lane change, causing life-threatening injuries.
  • $2.4 million after a lengthy, three-year court battle involving chronic soft tissue damage from a freeway crash.
  • $1.4 million for a truck accident causing neck and back injuries that required surgery.
  • $1 million after a bus rear-ended a taxi cab with such force the car ahead of the cab flew up into the air.
  • $1 million for multiple fractures after a medical van driver failed to secure a patient going in for dialysis.

You Can Rely on Personal Injury Attorneys Who Have Won Over $250 Million in Compensation for Our Clients

Our attorneys have a 99% track record of success when we accept a client’s case.

Though the areas of law pertaining to each type of case can be incredibly complex and unique, the common denominator is the substantial financial and emotional toll the injuries can take on the individuals and families involved. Ellis Law personal injury attorneys in Bakersfield will review each case carefully, crafting the right legal strategy necessary to achieve a fair resolution that adequately compensates victims where negligence is a factor.

Here are some examples of personal injury settlements we’ve won for our clients:

  • $4.1 million for burns, scarring, and loss of wages as a result of an exploding propane tank.
  • $3 million for wrongful death as a result of an 18-wheeler rolling over on a delivery van with a driver (the deceased) and his two daughters in it. The 18-wheeler’s driver had fallen asleep after a longer-than-mandated shift.
  • $1 million from a birth injury, in which a baby received a serious head injury during an emergency C-section.
  • $865,000 for a slip and fall injury caused by a leaking refrigerator, which caused a pool of water near a movie theater’s concession stand.

How Do I Know How Much My Personal Injury Case Is Really Worth? 

Multiple factors go into determining personal injury compensation amounts.

For medical and hospital bills, for example, settlements or jury awards usually cover the amounts insurance companies don’t pay. The same is true of therapy and rehabilitation costs, including costs for renovating rooms for handicapped use.

Loss of wages are compensated by paying any wages lost due to illness or injury.

There is usually a formula for determining any pain and suffering a client or loved one went through.

Past settlements do not guarantee future results, but a perusal of our results page will give you an idea of the range and type of settlements and awards that Ellis Injury Law routinely obtains for our clients.

Is There a Statute of Limitations for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in California?

Legal claims for personal injury or wrongful death in California must be filed within two years of any accident that caused the injury or death, or two years from the date of the first manifestation of any illness caused by the defendants.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

Most personal injury cases do not go to trial. Why? Because pretrial settlements are ultimately less injurious to the reputation of the defendants.

Defendants, judges, and juries are not always predictable and there can be no guarantees or promises of an outcome. Therefore, it is crucial to have an attorney like Andy Ellis who is an expert pretrial negotiator on your side, but who also has the acumen and experience to take your case to court if necessary — and WIN.
