Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can affect a person inside and out. Burn injury cases aren't from accidently touching a curling iron or brushing a hot pan. They involve serious scalding accidents from hot water and oil, chemical exposure, and other serious circumstances. Victims of burn accidents may suffer from permanent disfigurement. They may have irreparable damage to their tissues and nerves. Severe injuries can even impact bones.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a severe burn injury because of another person's negligence, we urge you to seek legal counsel. The physical and emotional distress of a burn injury may never go away, but taking action to secure monetary compensation can help you begin the process of healing. Surmounting medical bills and lost wages are only two of the ways burn victims suffer after a dangerous accident. A successful claim can help you start over without the overwhelming concerns of financial difficulty.

Dog Bite

Being bitten by a dog can be a scary experience. It's even scarier when children are involved or you know a dog has a history of aggression and the owners have failed to take precautions. The laws surrounding dog bites vary from state to state, and only the representation of an attorney who understands the laws at the local and state level can help you understand your legal options after a dog has bitten.

Nobody likes to think of dogs as the enemy, and in most cases, the dog is not the one who is targeted in a claim. Rather, owners who fail to maintain reasonable caution when caring for a dog are the ones who are responsible for its actions.

At Synergy, we want to help you with every aspect of a dog bite case. We understand the circumstances surrounding the bite may be sensitive because of personal relationships, a love of animals, and the desire to see justice served. We know you need a compassionate advocate who can help you receive the compensation you deserve without damaging relationships.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians always have the right of way, but crossing the street or walking on the sidewalk can still be a dangerous experience. When individuals driving cars fail to use reasonable caution and/or follow the rules of the road, they can cause grievous pedestrian accidents.

While the placement of barriers improves the safety of pedestrians traveling near storefronts and on some walkways, crossing the street is still one of the leading causes of pedestrian-vehicle accidents. Thousands of pedestrians are injured or killed in accidents every year. When someone else's negligent actions are the cause of the accident, victims and their families are entitled to compensation for their injuries.

Bicycle Accidents

Riding a bicycle is an environmentally friendly, healthy, and inexpensive mode of transportation. It is also a risky venture when bicyclists take to the streets. Car drivers are supposed to take care when driving around bicyclists, in the same way they have to pay attention to pedestrians. When they fail to take adequate care, the results can change the life of a bicyclist forever.

Bicyclists are allowed to ride freely on the roadways in most places. They follow the same rules of the road, but they are naturally more vulnerable to accidents with automobiles. Distracted driving, failing to provide adequate space when passing, and backing out of a drive are common causes of bicycle accidents in urban and rural environments.

When a bicycle and a car collide, the bicyclist is at the mercy of physics. Victims often suffer from extremity injuries like broken legs and arms. Head and spine injuries are also common. Bicyclists do not have the same all-around protection as a person protected on all sides by a vehicle. Add in the lightweight of a bicycle frame, and the potential for injury compounds in accident situations.

Motorcycle Accidents

For many motorcycle drivers, a motorcycle is a way of life. It is a recreational outlet to enjoy the full beauty of the American roadways. It is also an efficient and affordable means of transportation in the city and in rural areas. Motorcycle accidents are common in Los Angeles.

Some motorcycle drivers are careless and drive too fast or recklessly. The majority of drivers, however, have a profound respect for the inherent dangers a motorcycle presents. Most injurious accidents involving motorcycles are caused by other vehicles. Distracted driving, failure to follow the rules of the road, and other factors are common causes of motorcycle crashes.

The small profile of the motorcycle and instability of the structure make it a difficult target to see on the road and add to the potential for an accident. Even cautious motorcycle drivers may find themselves in accidents because of another driver's negligence. If you or a loved one is involved in a motorcycle accident, a personal injury attorney can help you get your life back.

Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents are different than other vehicular accidents. The size of trucks, driver responsibility, and state laws all play into how truck accidents are evaluated in personal injury cases. Due to the size of commercial trucks, trucking accidents are often severe and cause life altering injuries.

Being involved in a truck accident may be overwhelming at first. You may be contacted by 3rd party insurance companies, trucking companies, and others regarding information or a settlement. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, contact Synergy as soon as possible. Your attorney may be able to prevent others from contacting you and harassing you during your recovery. We may also speak to those individuals on your behalf.

Your top concern when you are involved in a truck accident should be recovery and healing. With an experienced attorney at your side, you can focus on your health while we build a case to help you get back to your life.

Car Accident

Thousands of car accidents happen every day in the U.S. from minor fender benders to devastating and deadly wrecks, car accidents are frequently associated with personal injury law. Many people mistakenly believe minor crashes are no cause for legal concern. In reality, no crash is minor. Any car collision that causes whiplash can have long-term effects on the victim. Spinal cord injury and chronic pain are frequently reported injuries associated with minor crashes.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident that was someone else's fault, we urge you to consult an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney who specializes in car accident injuries will know the laws in your area and can provide you with the information needed to make decisions in the aftermath of the accident.

Anyone involved in a car accident may face ever increasing medical expenses, loss of wages or future income, loss of quality of life, and other life-altering consequences. The experience can be stressful and scary. The only thing an accident injury victim should be focusing on in the wake of a car accident is recovery. By consulting the Synergy Team as soon as possible, you will have access to the information you need to talk with insurance providers and bring those who cause accidents to justice.

Children's' Injuries

Child injuries are a specialized area of personal injury law. Children under the age of 18 cannot file a personal injury claim themselves and require the consent of a legal guardian or parent. Synergy attorneys understand the nuances of child injury law and can help parents and children find justice after any accident injury.

Injuries commonly seen in personal injury law include product manufacturer defects for toys and recreational equipment, school injuries, amusement part accidents, and summer camp accidents. Some facilities cover their liability by requiring parents to sign an injury liability waiver, but in cases when someone's negligence causes injury, it is important to consult an experienced lawyer.

Slip and Fall

Many people who slip and fall injuries in a public space may not stop to consider what caused the accident. While a slip, trip, and fall victim is responsible for exercising adequate caution when walking in public places, there is often another factor responsible for the accident.

One of the most common slip, trip, and fall accidents occurs when someone forgets to put a wet floor sign out after cleaning. Failing to take reasonable caution and place a wet floor sign out immediately is considered an act of negligence, regardless of the person's intent. In this example, a property owner, employee, or a third party cleaning company may be responsible.

While some may get up and walk away from a slip, trip, and fall accident, the injuries can be mild or severe. Even a person who believes there is no damage may find him or herself facing chronic pain or other medical issues at a later time.

Premise Liability

Any accident that was caused by the negligence of a property owner or other party responsible for the cause of the accident may require filing a premises liability claim. Premises liability is the way in which individuals who were harmed can seek legal action and monetary compensation for injury and other consequences. Premise liability is a broad legal area, it can be the focus area of a personal injury case or even a criminal case, but either way our expert attorneys at Synergy are here to help you navigate the complexities of premise liability in any lawsuit.

Premises liability may apply to injuries including (but not limited to):

  • Accidents that occur on personal property, where the property owner did not exercise reasonable caution in maintaining the area and you or a loved one was thereby injured.
  • Accidents that occur because of negligent remodeling or construction site work that has not been adequately secured.
  • Accidents in and around stores where the owner or manager failed to maintain a reasonable level of safety for visiting patrons.
  • Accidents occurring because an amusement park failed to adequately maintain and upkeep equipment.
  • Crimes occurring because a landlord or other property owner failed to take necessary steps to secure the premises from hazards.

The principle of premises liability can become a complex legal matter, requiring the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney. If you believe an injury you or a loved one has suffered is the result of another person's actions, contact our attorneys today for a free consultation.

Wrongful Death

When someone dies because of the negligent actions of another, the surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death claim. Even in criminal manslaughter and murder cases, a family can file a wrongful death claim to gain compensation for financial loss.

If your loved one is dead as the result of a reasonably preventable accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your loss. While damages will never bring your loved one back, they can help surviving family members cope after the fact.

The Synergy Team hopes we never have to see you in our offices under such tragic circumstances. If we do, we are ready to fight tirelessly to guarantee you and your family are compensated for your loss. Our team includes compassionate advocates who understand how wrongful death affects families, and we have the expertise you need to bring the responsible parties to justice.

Compensation in Wrongful Death

Wrongful death suits began as a way to help widows and surviving children after the death of a spouse. Today, any financial dependents of the decedent may be eligible for benefits. The monetary damages can help pay for:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost future income
  • Medical expenses associated with the injury and death
  • Lost household responsibilities

In addition to financial compensation for monetary support your loved one may have provided, family members may also receive benefits for the loss of companionship, love, affection, protection, guidance, and moral support, among others.

It's never easy to pursue legal action when all you want is for the pain and suffering to be over. It can, however, be instrumental in helping you and other survivors move forward. A compassionate attorney at Synergy Law Group is ready to help you determine the best path forward. Our attorneys are skilled at providing sensitive counsel during this difficult time and making any legal action as painless as possible.

Taking action is one way you can find justice for your loved one's death. It is part of holding the responsible party accountable for reckless behavior and negligent actions. Our attorneys work tirelessly when we encounter wrongful death claims. Each case is unique and requires a different approach to get to the bottom of a death and bring the responsible parties to justice.
