Everyone knows that a spinal cord injury can permanently damage the spinal column
…and create permanent disability and paralysis, or temporarily limit your activity while you get better.
One may experience “spinal shock” which may last for hours or weeks. Healing is possible. In severe instances, medical care and physical therapy may be required and the injury may limit your ability to temporarily conduct your life normally for some time. Legal representation may be required to compensate you for your losses.

Cars and safety belts are not designed for roll-over.
Vehicles and sport utility vehicles can be top heavy and prone to rolling in an accident. Over 350 passengers have died in these “accidents.” Rollovers, even with supplemental restraint systems, usually result in serious injury to all occupants of a vehicle and account for almost 25% of all motor vehicle related deaths.

Injured because of a product?
Product Liability is an area of personal injury law that refers to injuries resulting from the use of products. These products can be something as simple as a small toy or something as complex as a multi-million dollar piece of industrial equipment. Motor vehicles, boats, printing equipment, toys, gadgets and food items and so on, all fall under this category.
Products that fail to function as one could reasonably expect and those with improper warnings or inadequate instructions fall under the product liability if someone is injured as a consequence.
Product Liability claims can be both complex and costly and require an experienced attorney with the resources to litigate these cases.

65,000 pedestrians are injured or killed annually in the United States.
While pedestrians can be at fault, these accidents are often due to driver’s failure to see a pedestrian. Again, injuries in these accidents are usually severe due primarily to the lack of protection afforded a pedestrian combined with the enormous weight differential that exists between the motor vehicle and a person. Pedestrians are fully exposed to the full force of accident.

All-Terrain Vehicle accidents seem to be growing at exponential rates.
Many of the victims are children aged 15 and under. We see these youngsters, who have no experience behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, traveling at high rates of speed usually through unfamiliar terrain. The combination of the two can be disastrous. Injuries are normally severe due to the high probability of the rider being ejected from the vehicle. Head, neck and back injuries all-too-often are the result, bringing about huge medical bills and months or even years of rehabilitation.
Call (818) 543-1900 and we will begin helping you.
Annually, motorcycle accidents produce almost 90,000 injuries
…with 4800 of the accidents resulting in death of the rider or passenger. Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injury or death.
The majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by operators of motor vehicles who fail to see a motorcycle until “it is too late.” At speeds as low as 5 or 10 miles an hour, a motor vehicle can cause severe damage or injury to the rider of a motorcycle. This can include extensive medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and actual physical damage to the motorcycle.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident call (818) 543-1900 for the immediate representation you need.
Elder abuse can range from improper care to sexual, financial, or physical abuse.
The most disheartening aspect of these cases is that the victims of elder abuse have “paid their dues.” They have spent their lives working and raising children to finally retire and often find themselves in a helpless and dependent position where they have no control over their care or those people administering “care” to them.
Call (818) 543-1900 and ask us how we can help.
STOP ELDER ABUSE
Dog and animal bites impact almost one million people each year.
When most people think of animal bites, they are inclined to think that it is no big deal. This could not be further from the truth. Animal bites can be extremely serious. Animal bites often involve puncture wounds which may become infected. These bites may take months to heal and leave lifelong disfigurement. Do not make the mistake of minimizing any animal bites. Always receive medical attention as quickly as possible.
No matter what the situation, if you or someone you know has been injured, you need to seek the assistance of competent, experienced professionals.

According to a recent survey, last year alone, there were over 450,000 burn victims requiring emergency medical treatment.
Burn injuries can be caused by gasoline fires resulting from high-speed car, truck, and motorcycle, accidents. Serious burns can also result from negligently installed electrical wiring, defective products, and exposure to toxic chemicals.
Burn injuries can cause life-changing disability as well as scarring and disfigurement. When caused by the negligence of another, the burn victim may be entitled to substantial monetary compensation.
Burns are classified into three types based on their severity:
This minor burn affects only the outer layer of the skin. It may cause redness, swelling, and pain. It usually heals with first-aid measures within several days to a week.
This type of burn affects both the outer layer and second layer of your skin. It may cause red, white or splotchy skin, pain, and swelling. This type of burn often looks wet or moist. Blisters may develop, and the pain and scarring can be severe.
This burn reaches into the fat layer beneath the skin. Burned areas may be charred black or white. The skin may look waxy or leathery. Third-degree burns often destroy nerves, causing numbness. A person with this type of burn may also have difficulty breathing or experience smoke inhalation or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Given the life-changing injuries burn victims face, representing such clients requires an attorney that is experienced in both medicine and the law. In order to maximize financial recovery for our clients, we often work with medically trained lifecare planners that outline the recovery options available to burn victims and their associated costs.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of a serious burn injury call our law office and ask to speak to Attorney William F. Salle at (818) 543-1900.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
…may result in life-long mental and physical challenges and causes about 30 percent of all injury deaths. TBI can be severe or mild and requires a clinical diagnosis and medical supervision. A sport-related concussion and almost any other type of accident can cause a brain injury. Children from the time of birth until the age of 14 and adults 65 and over are at an increased risk of TBI.
