Call a Santa Monica Personal Injury Lawyer
Los Angeles, California is a popular vacation site, especially in areas near the beaches. A vacation can, however, turn disastrous when someone else's carelessness or negligence causes the vacationer serious harm. At McGee, Lerer & Associates, we have many clients who hire us after being injured while on vacation in Santa Monica, Malibu, Venice, Marina Del Rey, or West Los Angeles. Here are just a few of the types of accidents that commonly occur while tourists are visiting these areas:
- Injuries at hotels (such as slip and fall accidents in hotel bathtubs)
- Pedestrian accidents
- Injuries on the Santa Monica bike path or pier, or on the Third Street Promenade
- Car accidents (including accidents in rental cars)
- Bus accidents
When someone is injured in a place that is far away from home, it can be difficult to know where to turn for legal assistance. It is typically most convenient and logical to hire an attorney in the area where your injury occurred, since any lawsuits will need to be tried locally if a settlement cannot be reached. Our legal team at McGee, Lerer & Associates has Santa Monica personal injury attorneys who are not only highly experienced, but are also willing to provide you with personalized client service through each step of the claims or litigation process. Our husband and wife team of personal injury lawyers, Daniel McGee and Catherine Lerer, have almost 40 years of combined legal experience.
Helping You Seek Full Financial Recovery
After individuals are injured through no fault of their own, they have a legal right to seek financial compensation from the at-fault party. This compensation usually covers things like medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income and more. For those who are on vacation, it may even be necessary to seek less common personal injury damages, such as costs for additional hotel expenses, flight expenses, car rental expenses, etc. Dealing with a serious injury can become even more costly and complicated when you are hundreds or thousands of miles away from home. Our team of attorneys can help with the logistics of finding you a local doctor who can treat you on a lien basis. That means that the doctor is paid at the end of the case, when your claim settles.
Our law firm has a strong track record when it comes to securing major compensation awards. In fact, we even hold membership in the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® because of our previous success with obtaining multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts.
