Why Choose Our Los Angeles Car Accident Attorneys

After a serious accident, you want to find the best possible representation, so you can receive maximum compensation and put all this behind you. At Ellis Injury Law, we do so much more for you than file the lawsuit paperwork and pay the upfront fees.

What to do after a car accident

We like to work with car accident victims from day one, whenever possible. We’ll help you collect evidence from the scene, including photographs, eyewitness statements, and police reports. Before you forget, write down all the details you can – the date, time, place, lane, direction traveled, speed, weather, and where you were headed. We’ll make sure you get to the best hospital or medical center for your injuries. We’ll assemble a team of experts, including crash investigators, medical experts, and insurance adjusters to add credence to your case.

You also want to be sure you avoid some of the big mistakes people make following a motor vehicle accident. Never talk to the opposing insurance company without an advocate! You may inadvertently provide incorrect information or get trapped into making a recorded statement that can be used against you in court to invalidate your claim. It’s all too easy to jet away from the scene, without calling the police, exchanging insurance information, or taking pictures.

Getting medical treatment after a car accident

Even if you don’t feel like you’re disabled after the crash, seek immediate medical attention to substantiate your injuries. The symptoms of whiplash, concussions, or minor bone fractures can be subtle at first. Follow the attending physician’s orders and appear at all follow-up appointments. It helps immensely to receive care from a respected doctor who can validate your injury claim. If you are not sure where to go for care, we are happy to advise you, as we have in-depth knowledge of all the best area medical providers. If you do not have medical insurance, we can help you get the top-level care you deserve.

Dealing with insurance agents when filing a car accident claim

You may notice that there is a flood of calls from insurance companies in the days that follow your accident. At face value, it may seem these people genuinely care how you’re doing. However, it’s our experience that the negligent driver’s insurance company wants to settle matters as quickly as possible, for as little as possible. While their initial offer may seem like a good sum of money at first, you have to take into account what future expenses may arise and how much others are getting paid for similar accidents. Why settle for $30,000 if you could receive as much as $3 million? Advocacy from a skilled attorney lets you know what is reasonable to expect and protects your best interests.

Winning Los Angeles Car Accident Attorneys

We’re so confident in our abilities, we never charge clients a fee – unless we win. There are no upfront costs to you whatsoever. We understand that this is a difficult time for your family – not just physically and emotionally, but financially, as well. Our goal is to alleviate that burden for you – not add to it. Our fees are honest, transparent, fair, and agreed upon before we set to work, so there are no surprises. You only pay us the pre-agreed fee out of your settlement or jury award. We have won over $350 million on behalf of personal injury clients, including large, multi-million-dollar settlements and jury awards. It’s a track record we’re proud of, and a distinguishing factor that sets us above the competition.

How to choose the best Los Angeles auto accident lawyer

Of course, winning isn’t everything. Choosing an experienced firm with a lot of wins is a good first step in narrowing down the playing field, but ultimately, people choose us based on other factors as well.

Why Clients Choose Our Los Angeles Car Accident Lawyers

Experience is worth a lot in this industry. You want a team that is tenacious and aggressive to insist on more when the opposition denies or lowballs the claim. Some law firms like to settle early just to boast a high percentage of “wins” and collect as high a fee for as little expense as possible. This isn’t our first time around the block. We’ve spent more than two decades fighting for car accident victims. We’re established leaders in the field, and we won’t settle for less.

No Fee Unless We Win – Our Guarantee

If you or someone you know needs help, it will cost you nothing to discuss your injury case with an attorney. Give us a call anytime or contact us via the form below.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from speaking with a car accident lawyer.

What does it cost to hire a Car Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles?

Contingency fees can range from 33 to 40%, with additional fees for police reports, filing, postage, investigator fees, expert witness fees, medical records fees, trial exhibits, and depositions taking. However, to offset some of these costs, we can sometimes negotiate to have these legal fees included in the final settlement or jury award to maximize what you collect.

NO UPFRONT FEES. FREE CONSULTATION.

It is important to understand that personal injury attorneys are different than divorce lawyers or business lawyers in that there are NO UPFRONT FEES and 100% FREE CONSULTATIONS. You don’t ever have to worry about whether or not you can afford an attorney, let alone the best attorney. The answer is: EVERYONE can afford our top-level services!

Aggressive Representation for all Types of Auto Accident Cases

Whether you were in a low-speed collision, front impact, rear-ender, or side collision, we will fight tirelessly to demonstrate the other party’s negligence. In some cases, we’ve gone after employers, local municipalities, automobile manufacturers, maintenance personnel, and other third parties who were liable for accident injuries. The State of California allows you to collect some damages, even if the accident WAS partially your fault. For instance, if a judge determines you were 90% responsible for what happened, you can still sue for 10% of the total damages caused by the defendant. Part of our job is to refute claims that you were, in any way, responsible – or at least limit the amount of reduction.

What should you have prepared when meeting with a Los Angeles car accident attorney?

When you call Ellis Injury Law, we’ll ask you some basic questions:

  • When and where did the accident occur?
  • How did the accident happen?
  • How fast were you going? Was the defendant speeding?
  • Who had the right of way?
  • Could there have been a defect in one of the cars?
  • Do you have contact information for the other party?
  • Did the police file a report at the scene?
  • Were there any witnesses? Photographs?
  • What specific injuries did you suffer? Where did you seek treatment?

If you don’t know everything, that’s ok. Our investigators can uncover the missing details. It might be best to write down as much as you can recall before you telephone us, so you’ll feel more prepared in discussing your case. Having copies of medical records, police reports, and photographic evidence is not always necessary, but it is very helpful.

How hard is to settle a case after an accident?

It can be extremely difficult to negotiate a settlement after an automobile accident. The other side will be pushing hard to get the case dismissed and limit liability. The success of your case will depend upon how strong the facts are, the legal argument proving your right to compensation, our ability to demonstrate your damages, and whether or not the other party has sufficient liability insurance.

Please act quickly, because California has a deadline for filing a lawsuit – the Statute of Limitations. You have up to two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. Sometimes the deadline is shorter – six months for claims against the government, and one year for medical malpractice. Other times, the timeframe can be extended – until age 20 (when the victim is a minor), or three years from the realization of harm (when the manifestation of injury comes later). The sooner you contact a lawyer, the easier it will be to collect evidence, track down witnesses, and convince the insurance company to settle.

Video Transcription:

[Derek Turbin]: “At Ellis Law what we really specialize in is car accidents. We have hundreds of auto accident cases coming across my desk. Personally first thing, again similar to motorcycle accidents we have to make sure our clients are taken care of promptly and immediately for their injuries.

A little bit of a difference with these injuries is sometimes the onset of pain comes out a little bit later, so we have to make sure they’re taken care of immediately but we also have to make sure there’s some consistency in their care and they’re constantly getting checked up on, and evaluated in a consistent fashion to make sure we account for all of their injuries.

A lot of times they injure their back, and about a week later their feeling numbness and tingling down their legs. Maybe they injured their neck and onset of headaches come on. We figure out about some type of neurological injury a little bit later in the game.

Once we know that they’re taken care of, once we’ve ensured that they’ve gotten further prompt and appropriate treatment, that’s when the fact-finding starts again that’s when we go to the scene. We have won a big case with disputed liability that occurred at an intersection. Our client had the green light and the defendant claimed that they had the green light.

In that case we went to the city and got the light facing records. We made sure to look up the lights, to look at the timing, look for all the video cameras around that area. Whether it’s an adjacent store owner or a video camera at the intersection. In that case we’ve turned over all the stones and figure out that really the defendant was lying. She clearly didn’t have the green light, our client had the green to the timing of the light facing record and some of the video from the adjacent property owner. A lot of accidents are going to be disputed liability and it’s our job to figure that out and determine that our client needs to be compensated for their injuries.

We don’t just want to account for the medical bills that they pay but we also have to account for the future medical bills that can arise from exacerbation. Once we have a very clear thorough picture of what it’s going to take to get them better that’s when we start the settlement negotiations and that’s when we account for the whole picture in the settlement and we are bringing Andy as the closer to make sure that they get a good fair number and settle on that number.”
