Do you need a personal injury attorney?
In some cases, a personal injury lawyer is not necessary – for instance: if your only loss was personal property, if your injuries did not require medical treatment, or if you are not seeking financial compensation.
When your injuries were caused by malicious criminal activity, you may need to file a police report and press criminal charges through the District Attorney’s office. In addition to your criminal case, you may also have legal grounds for suing a third party through the civil court system. For that reason, it’s a good idea to at least speak with a civil lawyer in La Cañada Flintridge to explore your legal options.
What do personal injury lawyers investigate?
Personal injury attorneys can assist with a wide variety of claims, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective products
- Premises liability slips, trips, falls, and dog attacks
- Night club assaults and police brutality
- Nursing home negligence and abuse
- Medical mishaps and misdiagnoses
- Workplace and construction site accidents
Usually, the accident victims we service have had severe injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury, paraplegia, quadriplegia
- Cosmetic disfiguration requiring surgery
- Internal damage to organs
- Illnesses affecting quality of life for more than six months
If another party’s negligent and reckless behavior contributed to an accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. The desired result is to hold liable parties accountable for their actions, compensate victims for their losses and suffering, and prevent future accidents.
Should you sue?
A common misconception is that you should only phone a personal injury attorney once you’ve made up your mind to sue someone. Ellis Injury Law offers free, confidential consultations with prospects. You’re under no obligation to hire us to represent you. We are simply here to help you explore your legal options. Unlike other areas of law, personal injury attorneys do not charge upfront fees – mostly because we understand the financial strain a sudden, unexpected injury presents. You only pay us for legal services if we take your case AND win money on your behalf through settlement or jury award.
Over the years, we have recovered over $350 million for our clients to cover:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Lost past, present, and future wages, and loss of income earning capacity
- Disability-related travel expenses, home modifications, and expenses

- Loss of consortium, companionship, or guidance (for spouses and dependents)
- Wrongful death (for spouses of the deceased)
- Funeral expenses and burial costs (for surviving immediate family members)
- Punitive damagers
- Legal fees
In some cases, particularly when the evidence is strong and undisputed, you may be able to recover compensation through early negotiations, without ever going to court. Naturally, we want your case to settle with the least amount of stress, hassle, and expense to you. Through more than 25 years of experience, we know what your case is worth, and we will never let insurance providers or defendants low-ball you.
