Santa Monica Personal Injury Attorney
Serious Injury Cases in Santa Monica
Santa Monica personal injury lawyers Daniel McGee and Catherine Lerer are a husband and wife team with over 35 years of combined experience representing serious injury victims. We have a track record of multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements in our representation of victims of serious injury and wrongful death. Our law firm has the personal injury expertise, the financial resources, and the trial experience to get maximum value for your case.
No Up-Front Fee
It costs you nothing up front to hire our law firm. All work is done on a contingency fee basis, which means that the legal fees are paid for out of the settlement or jury award in your case. If you recover nothing – you pay us nothing.
Personal Injury Lawyers with Experience Representing Santa Monica Accident Victims
As residents of Santa Monica for almost 30 years, the attorneys at McGee, Lerer & Associates are acutely aware of the particular dangers faced by Santa Monica residents and visitors. Not only do we have a higher ratio of accidents caused by elderly drivers, Santa Monica has the dubious distinction of ranking #1 for motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents out of 104 California cities of similar size, according to the most recent statistics from the California Office of Traffic Safety. The statistics also show that we rank #1 (worst) for hit and run accidents and for nightime accidents (9 p.m. to 2:59 a.m.).
Singular Focus and Personalized Service Set us Apart
Having both previously worked at larger firms which handled a range of legal matters, we decided to open our own firm based on two precepts: (1) 100% of the practice would be devoted to handling personal injury cases, and (2) we would keep the firm small so that we can provide the personalized service that each client deserves. Unlike many personal injury lawyers who market their firms aggressively on the internet, we are not a "personal injury mill" – a business model that calls for a volume caseload which is handled mostly by a team of non-attorney staff. At other firms, you may only speak to the actual attorney when your case is first signed up. After that, when you call in, you speak to secretaries, legal assistants, case managers or voicemail. At McGee, Lerer & Associates, however, when you hire our firm, you get Daniel McGee and Catherine Lerer as your attorneys. When you call our office, you speak to us. In order to provide that level of personalized service, we are selective in the cases we take. If after speaking with you about your accident, we decide we cannot take on your case, we will make every effort to refer you to another lawyer that is best suited to your particular legal matter.
Our firm represents clients who have experienced all types of injuries from accidents including:
child injury cases,
injuries to elderly accident victims,
car accidents, car accidents caused by
unlicensed driver accidents,
diminished value claims,uninsured motorist accidents,
drunk driving accidents,
spinal cord injuries,
swimming pool accidents,
nursing home negligence,
wrongful death and
hit and run accident cases. We can also assist clients in cases relating to
uninsured & underinsured motorist coverage and
aggravation of a prior medical condition.
Additionally, based on experience, we have developed a level of expertise representing accident victims who have been diagnosed with annular tears or
complex regional pain syndrome. Our clients in both of these situations are experiencing a high level of pain and serious discomfort. Many injury victims are frustrated, and rightfully so, because their suffering could have been prevented if the party at fault would have maintained reasonable care of their surroundings. Victims of surgical errors or motor accidents may experience complex regional pain syndrome, a medical situation where the victim has extreme pain, severe and isolated swelling of body parts and other painful symptoms. The process of undergoing treatment and rehabilitation from your accident may require years of discipline and patience, and may overwhelm you with medical expenses that you are unable to pay. Our firm will work with you to fully understand your unique situation and to provide you with caring assistance and answers to your questions. We can help make the process of recovering easier for you by advocating on your behalf for compensation to cover your costs.
