Personal Injury in Los Angeles: Types of Cases We Handle
At Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyers, we strive to help anyone hurt by the careless and dangerous actions of another. Here are some of the most common types of cases we handle.
Drivers of motor vehicles on L.A. freeways and streets — including cars, trucks, and buses — take risks and make mistakes. They drive drugged or drunk, they speed, they tailgate, or they just plain don’t pay attention to the road ahead of them. Whatever the cause, car accidents can leave innocent victims fighting for their lives and in physical, emotional, and financial ruin. We fight back by using the legal tools and financial resources at our disposal to investigate and litigate even the most complicated motor vehicle accident cases. We can also help you determine if a wrongful death lawsuit is possible.
Trucking Accident and 18 Wheeler Cases
If you drive the highways and streets of L.A. on a regular basis, you are well aware that we have some of the worst traffic in the nation. Many of the vehicles are tractor trailers and 18 wheelers, and they always seem to be in a rush. No surprise here, as the faster they deliver their cargo, the more money they make. Truck drivers and the companies that employ them are highly motivated to speed, “cut corners” on safety and compliance, and push the limits of safety and common sense – all in the name of profits. Unfortunately, the citizens of Los Angeles and southern California pay the price for this greed. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a truck accident in Los Angeles, or anywhere in California, call us right now, 24/7, at 800-898-4877 for a FREE consultation, or you can contact us now by CLICKING HERE to submit your case for review.
Bikers have the same right to the road as anyone else, but many stubborn Los Angeles drivers don’t respect that right. Instead, they drive as if motorcycles are invisible, cutting bikers off when they change lanes and turning into the path of a bike on its way through an intersection. Motorcyclists suffer serious injuries in these collisions, left vulnerable to impact and protected only by a helmet. We don’t let drivers get away with their dangerous disrespect of bikers. If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident in Los Angeles, let us help you fight for justice. Hold negligent drivers and their insurance companies accountable for putting bikers in the hospital, and get the maximum compensation you deserve.
Slips, Trips, Falls, and Other Incidents On Someone Else’s Property
You slipped on a wet floor at the grocery store. Your kid tore his ACL on your neighbor’s unsafe, unmonitored trampoline. You went to grab a railing in an apartment building stairwell, and the railing came off the wall and sent you tumbling backward. In California, property owners are supposed to keep visitors safe from accidents like these. When they don’t, visitors can end up in a wheelchair or with a traumatic brain injury, or with dozens of other serious, life-threatening injuries. These are preventable accidents caused by dangerous conditions the owner should have repaired or given adequate warning about. Don’t suffer because of someone else’s mistake. At Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyers, we strive to hold Los Angeles property owners accountable for their negligence.
Injured Cyclists and Pedestrians
Riding a bike or crossing a street in L.A. shouldn’t mean risking your life, but when distracted drivers hit the road, that nightmare might become a reality. California has rules for drivers to make sure they keep the roads and sidewalks safe for cyclists and pedestrians. There’s no excuse for breaking those rules and colliding with a bicycle or a person on foot. Drivers and their insurance companies must pay for the catastrophic injuries their negligence and recklessness cause. We work tirelessly to make sure that happens so that our injured clients can put their lives back together.
Injured Construction Workers
If you work on a construction site, we don’t need to tell you about the dangers involved in your job. Every day around the City of Angels, construction workers suffer the consequences of careless coworkers, inadequate safety measures, and developers who cut corners and put workers in danger just to save a few bucks. The team at Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyers, won’t let anyone off the hook for that kind of negligence. Construction workers put their lives on the line every day. A bad personal injury can ruin their ability to work and earn a living for their families. When a construction accident leaves a worker unable to earn a living, we do everything within our power to make sure that the worker receives the money it takes to heal.
Los Angeles Accidents & Personal Injuries
While there are countless ways someone can suffer a personal injury, our team at Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyers can come up with just as many solutions for recovery. Thanks to decades of combined experience helping people recover financially from accidents, we’ve learned quite a lot about the complications various injuries can cause, the time it takes to return to full health, and the amount of money our clients truly deserve to be paid by those who did them harm. Here are just a few of the most common injuries we help our injured clients recover from.
Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis
A severe spinal cord injury can result in at least partial, if not total, paralysis. The related medical expenses can be devastating for families and can run up to a million dollars in the first year alone. Over a lifetime, that total multiplies. No one can be expected to handle that kind of physical, emotional, and financial catastrophe on their own. The team at Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyers, knows the ins and outs of the complicated medical and financial aspects of spinal cord injuries. We ensure our injured clients recover the right amount of money as quickly as possible, so they can adapt to their changed lives.
Traumatic Brain Injuries and Brain Damage
Even a “mild” bump to the head, let alone the major impact of a car crash, can leave a person with permanent impairments. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are unpredictable and complex injuries. Some people recover from them completely, while other people suffer from long-term cognitive and physical deficits. On day one of a TBI, it’s hard for anyone to predict which way recovery will go. The same goes for other cases that cause brain damage, like oxygen deprivation and disrupted blood flow to the brain. That’s why our team of brain injury attorneys and case managers hopes for the best, but fights for every dollar in case the medical outcome is worse.
Crushed/Amputated Arms and Legs
High-speed impacts, heavy objects, and dangerous machines can wreak havoc on the arms and legs of innocent victims. Losing the functionality of a limb, or losing the limb entirely, changes the course of a victim’s life. It makes working more difficult, playing less fun, and living more challenging in every possible way. Fortunately, with the right medical care, technology, and financial support, it’s possible to return to a normal life. Our mission at Stewart J. Guss, Injury Accident Lawyers, is to make true recovery possible for anyone who has suffered such a life-changing injury.
Orthopedic and Soft Tissue Injuries
Even if an injury is not life-threatening, it can still cause prolonged pain and suffering. Chronic pain takes a heavy toll on our clients. We know what it’s like to live in constant pain but have people think you’re “back to normal.” We take injuries to joints, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissue seriously, because we know—and know how to prove—how these injuries can cause a lifetime of pain deserving significant compensation.

We know how overwhelming a severe injury can be, but never lose hope. We’re here to help and support you through this traumatic time. Let’s start with three simple guidelines for handling challenges in the days and weeks ahead:
- First, make sure you get all the medical care you need and are covered for. Nothing is more important than your health. Get your health to as stable a spot as possible, so that you (or your loved ones) can make responsible decisions about what to do next.
- Second, BEWARE OF INSURANCE COMPANIES. Since someone else’s negligence or recklessness caused your injury, there’s a decent chance an insurance company is going to try to offer you a quick, lowball settlement to get you to “go away.” IT’S A TRAP. The insurance company doesn’t care about you. It cares about limiting its financial risk. Don’t sign anything yet.
