About Our Superstar California Personal Injury Team
So, let us ask you another question: Do you have a lawyer yet? If not (or if you do, but you’re unhappy with the one you have), then it’s TIME for you to call Stewart J. Guss Personal Injury Attorneys. Attorney Guss and his team make up one of the top personal injury law firms in the WHOLE COUNTRY and provide the kind of advocacy everyone deserves when they’ve been hurt because of someone else’s careless, stupid actions.
Today, Attorney Guss and his team serve Californians from all walks of life who have been injured in accidents. Their SOLE MISSION is to help injured people recover the MAXIMUM damages owed to them by people and companies whose careless actions caused accidents, injury, and pain. Our team isn’t scared of fancy lawyers and big insurance companies. Not by a LONG shot. We bring the fight to every case, whether that means negotiating aggressively against insurers who don’t want to open up their checkbooks, or arguing in courtrooms to judges and juries. We hold people and companies accountable for hurting our clients, and we make them PAY.
What We Do and the Cases We Handle.
WE FIGHT to get JUSTICE AND COMPENSATION for our injured clients. Period. We don’t represent insurance companies. We don’t take the “defense” side in cases. Our clients are injured people and their families, and that’s it.
Clients come to us after all kinds of accidents and incidents leave them hospitalized, disabled, out-of-work, and in pain. Some of the most common events that bring people through our doors are:
Car, Truck, and Motor Vehicle Accidents
People get hurt in crashes every day in California and across the country. A lot of the time, those crashes AREN’T THEIR FAULT. Unfortunately, without the right legal representation, victims of motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, and buses, run the risk of being victimized ALL OVER AGAIN by stingy insurance companies looking to weasel their way out of paying the BIG BUCKS. We don’t let them. We protect our clients and fight for every dollar they deserve after even the most complicated motor vehicle accident leaves them struggling with physical, emotional, and financial difficulties.
And it’s a BIG PROBLEM in California, where traffic fatalities and deaths caused by alcohol-impaired drivers are on the rise.
You have the FREEDOM of the road on a motorcycle. As a biker, you have RIGHTS to be treated the same as any other motorist. When somebody cuts you off, doesn’t yield, or ignores you in their rear-view mirror, they put you AT RISK of serious injuries. Careless driving around motorcyclists is WRONG, DANGEROUS, and should lead to DAMAGES for the drivers who cause wrecks with motorcycles. Other motorists think bikers take their lives into their own hands by taking to the road without airbags, roll bars, and other safety feature. At Stewart J. Guss Personal Injury Attorneys, we take bikers’ lives into OUR hands, instead, and fight for the justice and compensation they deserve.
In recent years, California motorcycle fatalities have climbed from 365 to 566—that’s more than 10 percent of the nation’s fatalities! Only in Florida do more people die on motorcycles. Factoring in many other considerations, the Motorcycle Institute ranks the state at a not-so-great 24th for safety.
Slips, Trips, Falls, and Other Incidents on Someone Else’s Property
You know what REALLY gets us hot under the collar? It’s when someone who owns property doesn’t show our clients the RESPECT and COMPASSION they deserve when they get injured on that property through no fault of their own. We don’t let business owners get away with giving our clients “token” payments, like gift cards and free stays, when our clients get hurt in their stores, at their parks, or on their hotel premises. We make them cough up the COLD HARD CASH owed to anyone who gets hurt because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property.
Injured Cyclists and Pedestrians
The act of walking and riding a bike isn’t a contact sport. These simple pleasures shouldn’t be dangerous. When other people make BONEHEADED mistakes and hurt people in crosswalks or on the shoulder of a road, someone needs to hold them accountable. THAT’S US. Pedestrians and cyclists can get really badly injured in accidents with motor vehicles in particular. They deserve lawyers who will handle the fight on their behalf, while they focus on recovering from extreme physical and emotional trauma.
Injured Construction Worker
Construction is a dangerous business. Did you know that insurance companies and big construction companies actually calculate how many people they expect to die or to get seriously injured in construction accidents? It’s true. Injured construction workers are just a cost of doing business for these companies. But, not for us. When one of our clients gets hurt in a construction accident, we make sure the costs careless construction companies and their insurers have to pay are high enough to teach them a lesson that (hopefully) will improve safety down the road. In other words, we CHASE DOWN construction companies that cut corners on safety as well as the insurance companies who cover them. We make them open their wallets and compensate our clients to the maximum allowed by law. Injured construction workers might just be a cost of doing business for builders, but for the team at Stewart J. Guss Personal Injury Attorneys, IT’S PERSONAL.
The Injuries Our Clients Often Have
We represent injured people. ALL KINDS of injured people, of all ages, all backgrounds, all genders, and all nationalities (Se habla Español, por supuesto).
We also represent people with ALL KINDS OF INJURIES. We’ve seen a pretty broad range of injuries over the years. So many, in fact, that our team has a strong understanding of how those injuries happen, how they heal, and how to explain them to a judge and jury to get you the most money available to you. We’re not doctors, of course, but we work with medical experts when we need to in order to get a deeper understanding of our clients’ injuries. Below are some (but, just some) of the most common injuries we see at our law offices in California, Texas, and Louisiana.
Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis
Spinal cord injuries change lives, often forever. They frequently cause partial or total paralysis, not to mention all kinds of secondary health complications. They cost MILLIONS of dollars to manage, not to mention the physical and emotional challenges of facing a life transformed. Californians with spinal cord injuries deserve a TOUGH, MOTIVATED legal advocate who will make sure they get the resources and support they need to rebuild their lives. Our first mission is to help recover money damages to stabilize our clients financially, but we also understand the importance of finding our clients the help they need to find emotional stability. Life can feel pretty dark right after a spinal cord injury, but with the right support, there is a brighter future. We want to help our clients get there.
Traumatic Brain Injuries and Brain Damage
Doctors are still at the very early stages of figuring out how the human brain works. But, what they know so far is that if you take a blow to your head—even one that seems like just a minor “bump”—you can suffer long term damage that affects every part of how your body functions. WE TAKE BRAIN TRAUMA SERIOUSLY here at Stewart J. Guss Personal Injury Attorneys. We know how it can affect how you think, move, and remember. And, we know how other people discriminate against people with TBIs and other brain injuries. We don’t let them get away with it. We hold anyone whose actions caused your TBI, and anyone who breaks the law and makes your life worse because of a TBI, accountable.
Crushed/Amputated Arms and Legs
Car accidents, construction accidents, workplace accidents, really any kind of accident that involves heavy objects and physical forces, can leave innocent victims with crushed or traumatically-amputated limbs. These are HORRIBLE, PAINFUL injuries. They deserve maximum compassion and maximum effort from your legal team. We put in that effort to help anyone who has lost a limb, or use of a limb, get every penny they need to adjust to a “new normal.”
Orthopedic and Soft Tissue Injuries
Sometimes, people get into bad accidents and suffer injuries, but those injuries don’t TOTALLY alter their lives the way, say, a spinal cord injury does. Others will tell those people “hey, count yourself lucky.” But, those people don’t always feel so lucky. When an accident breaks bones, tears ligaments, and causes other soft tissue injuries, it can still leave lasting pain and trauma. Just because you aren’t in a wheelchair and don’t struggle with basic life tasks because of your injuries doesn’t mean you should go without compensation. You deserve damages too. Let us help you get them.
What Injured Californians Need to Know About Us
WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
That’s what you need to know. If you’re hurt, and it’s somebody else’s fault, the team at Stewart J. Guss Personal Injury Attorneys wants to hear from you. WHY do we want to hear from you? We’d be lying if we didn’t say it’s because that’s how we earn our living. We don’t lie. Our team earns its income by recovering money for injured people, and receiving a percentage of what’s recovered as a fee.
But, we wouldn’t be very good at our jobs if that was the ONLY reason we want to hear from you. Our law practice comprises lawyers, paralegals, and case managers who are in this business because they care about helping people who have gotten injured through no fault of their own. We take this stuff personally. Helping people like you is not just a career for our team, it’s a mission.
In that vein, here are two things we want you to know as you face life right after an injury. This is basic advice, and it’s probably common sense to you, but it’s worth us repeating because it’s so important.
- First, make sure you see a doctor and get all the follow-up care you can. Nothing is more important than your health. If you’re having trouble finding medical care, give us a call and we might be able to help.
- Second, remember that INSURANCE COMPANIES AREN’T YOUR FRIENDS. If someone offers you money or asks you to sign something, SAY NO until you’ve talked to a lawyer. Insurance companies will try to get you to sign away your rights in exchange for “quick money.” Trust us, the “quick money” is usually WAY LESS than the amount of money you deserve and that a skilled lawyer can secure for you.
