Automobile Accidents

The number of automobile accidents is increasing.

Over 1.5 million people are injured and over 55,000 people die in motor vehicle accidents annually. About half of all fatalities and about 20% of injuries from these “accidents” involved alcohol.

Call for help as soon as you are injured. You take the time to recover and we’ll deal with the insurance companies.

Our firm understands that when a family member dies at the fault of another, you need the resources that would have existed if your loved one was still in your life.

When you have been injured at no fault of your own or someone you love or know died in a vehicle accident. Call our law office and ask to speak to William F. Salle at (818) 543-1900.

Wrongful Death

Sudden Loss

The sudden loss of a loved one is simply one of the worst things anyone ever experiences.

Not only do you lose knowing the person but also all of the benefits and companionship they brought to your life. It’s hard to recover from a sudden loss and an individual may need both medical and psychological care during their recovery. Grief is real and serious. Importantly, as time goes on, the individual and the decedent’s family misses, but needs, all of the emotional and financial support the deceased person would have contributed. Money does not make up for losing your loved one, but it can help with your recovery and your future financial needs.

Call The Law Office of William F. Salle now at (818) 543-1900. Our legal team will treat you as if you were a friend of the family. We will help you move forward.

Attorney William F. Salle has a particular place in is heart for people who have suffered such a loss. He is kind and empathetic with his clients while he aggressively fights for a full monetary compensation. Money can never replace your loved one, but money can be very important when children and other dependents are involved.

Truck Accidents


When we refer to trucks, we normally refer to 18-wheel tractor trailers; commonly referred to as semi(s). Due to their limited visibility, trucks may hit pedestrians, bicycle riders, or cars, motorcycles or other trucks. Because of the weight differential between the truck and what they plow into, these accidents frequently result in serious injury and should be handled by an experienced attorney.

Salle is the experienced attorney you need. Ask for him and he will help you and provide the information and help you need to move forward.

Trip, Slip and Fall Accidents

Almost everyone has fallen down.

Children just get up and go on, but adults are often embarrassed and try to minimize the incident. Injuries may not show up immediately. If you hit your head, you need to be taken to a doctor.

If you trip on public, commercial or private property, document the situation and what caused you to fall. Make sure you understand what unsafe condition caused your fall. Ask witnesses for their contact information. If you are too injured at the time have someone else document the incident for you as soon as possible.

There are over 17,000 deaths annually caused by falling.

Spinal Cord – Paralysis

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.

Spinal Shock

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.

Permanent Spinal Cord Injury

A severe spinal cord injury can cause permanent damage which changes your life forever and may require life-long care. You need an experienced plaintiff personal injury attorney dedicated to getting you all of the care and aid you need to provide you with the highest quality of life possible. Mr. William Salle deeply cares about his clients. If you or a loved one has a spinal cord injury, call now (818) 543-1900 and he will go to work immediately.

Rollover Accidents

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.

Product Liability

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.

Call us to discuss your case at (818) 543-1900.

Pedestrian Accidents

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.

Off-Road (ATV) Accidents

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.
