Tens of thousands of people are injured in California car accidents every year. That means that annually, thousands of people face the scary and stressful aftermath of a car accident that they did not cause somewhere in California. You may be one of those people. You may be unable to work. You may be facing mounting medical bills.
If so, your financial situation is becoming progressively more tenuous. Insurance company representatives may be calling in hopes of getting you to sign documents for settlement amounts you feel are not sufficient to cover your losses. Aside from all of this stress and misery, you are suffering through intense physical pain. Let us take the stress of dealing with insurance company representatives off of your shoulders. We understand how to take action on your behalf so that you can focus on what’s important, which is getting your life back.
Insurance companies are not necessarily working with your best interests in mind. They are for-profit organizations that will protect themselves above all others. Their interest most likely involves making your claim go away as quickly and as efficiently as possible while facing the least amount of financial liability. Insurance company representatives are often highly skilled and highly paid professionals who deal with these situations every day. Your confusion works to their advantage. No matter how friendly they seem, they are not your friend or advocate.
Eliminate these people from your life and simplify things for yourself by obtaining the help of a lawyer from Andal Law Group. He or she will handle all dealings with the insurance company so you won’t have to speak to the insurance companies unless the attorney is present with you. We are also highly skilled professionals who deal with these situations every day but we are your advocates.
In addition to your insurance-related stress, you’re also most likely enduring the daily struggle that is your medical situation. Even if you have health insurance, the costs associated with these needs can quickly rise. Out-of-pocket expenses for medical care such as ambulance transport, emergency room care, doctor visits, surgeries, physical therapy, imaging, medications are all recoverable. You could also be looking at substantial medical losses in the future. You need to be sure to include those future medical costs in any settlement or judgment that you obtain. It takes skill and experience to accurately place value on a car accident claim. Types of losses that need to be included in any fair recovery include past and future medical expenses, past and future lost income, past and future pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.

Auto Accidents include:
● Auto v. Auto
● Uninsured Motorist
Slip and Fall/Trip and Fall
Cracked or slippery surfaces may seem benign until it is too late. If you have been harmed in a preventable trip and fall accident, you could be owed ample financial compensation. In California, landowners owe you an absolute duty to keep their premises safe. For example, when you visit the grocery store, management must clean up a spill as soon as they know the floor is wet. If they fail to do so, or fail to reasonably inspect the aisles for signs of wetness, injuries can and do result. These rules don’t just apply to grocery stores. All kinds of landowners are subject to them, from the cities that maintain your sidewalk to keep it free of cracks, to the landlord at your apartment complex.
If you have been injured because of a slippery surface or if you have tripped on a hazard or uneven pavement, call the experienced attorneys at Andal Law Group today. You can schedule a free initial consultation with the firm so that you can move forward with the peace of mind that you’ve gotten some help with your difficult situation.
Medical malpractice can happen on the operating table, in an exam room, or even at the pharmacy when you pick up medicine your doctor never should have prescribed. Whatever the circumstances, now you face pain, stress, and expenses you did not plan for and do not deserve.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider – a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse, surgical tech, or therapist – harms a patient by delivering negligent or deliberately harmful medical treatment. Medical malpractice does not usually include predictable complications from medical treatments, especially when medical providers have discussed those potential complications with patients and their families. Instead, medical malpractice focuses mostly on preventable accidents that adversely affect a patient’s quality of life.
If you’ve sustained a medical malpractice injury in California, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Contact the experienced attorneys at Andal Law Group today to schedule a free consultation.
The unexpected death of a loved one is a devastating event that no one prepares for. The emotional toll of such a tragedy can be much harder to bear when another person or entity is to blame for your loss.
In California, when someone’s death is the result of wrongful behavior or negligence, surviving family members can file what is known as a “wrongful death” lawsuit in civil court. An experienced California wrongful death lawyer can explain your rights and help you and your family seek justice for the pain you are experiencing.
A wrongful death lawsuit is a type of civil legal action that can be brought by the survivors of a deceased person who died as a result of a wrongful act or negligence. Some wrongful death cases are filed based on behavior that is also the subject of criminal charges. In such a scenario, the two cases will proceed independently of one another. However, there does not need to be a crime or criminal conviction in order to bring a wrongful death case. Certain types of reckless or negligent conduct can be a sufficient basis for such a lawsuit irrespective of any alleged or proven criminal liability.

Certain types of reckless or negligent conduct can be a sufficient basis for such a lawsuit irrespective of any alleged or proven criminal liability.
Unlike a criminal lawsuit involving homicide charges like manslaughter or murder, which can result in a defendant being convicted and receiving a criminal sentece, fault in a wrongful death lawsuit leads solely to the award of money damages. If you succeed in a wrongful death lawsuit, the court will order the responsible party to pay a sum of money to you and your family members. This sum of money can include damages for medical bills, funeral costs, lost income, and loss of emotional support.
Millions of Americans are injured as a result of dog bites and attacks each year. The majority of dog bites are caused by a neighbor’s or a friend’s dog.
What you need to show to have a solid legal dog bite case:
● The defendant owned the dog
● The dog bit the plaintiff
● The plaintiff was lawfully on the premises where the bite or attack took place
● The dog bite caused the plaintiff injuries
If you or a loved one was injured by a dog bite or attack, call the experienced attorneys at Andal Law Group today.
If someone is injured by a defective product, they may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributer, depending on the type of defect. The two primary categories of product defects under federal law are design defects and manufacturing defects.
Manufacturing defects are caused by an error in assembly and are not intended to be part of the product. This type of defect will typically only be found in a small percentage of a company’s manufactured goods. Based on the theory of strict liability, a manufacturer is liable for any manufacturing defects that occur as a result of faulty construction, regardless of whether they took care throughout the manufacturing
process. The plaintiff needs to prove that the defect allegedly responsible for their injury was present at the time of departure from the factory where the good was produced.
Design defects are flaws in the original blueprint of a product that causes it to be unreasonably dangerous and creates a hazard for potential users. This type of defect will typically be found in all of a company’s manufactured products. Three questions are asked to determine whether a design defect exists:
● Was the product’s design unreasonably dangerous prior to production?
● Was it plausible to anticipate the design of the product could harm a potential user?
● Could the manufacturer have used a superior design that was economically feasible and would not alter the purpose of the product?
If any of these questions are answered affirmatively, the injured party may have grounds for a design defect claim and should contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible.
A products liability lawsuit can also be brought for a manufacturer’s failure to warn of potential risks. Any party in the chain of distribution can be liable if warnings or instructions could have prevented injury from foreseeable risks or if the warnings themselves, when followed properly, caused the injury.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is the organization responsible for maintaining rules and regulations for safety symbols and product safety signs and labels. According to the ANSI, a warning label should:
● Inform the consumer of existing hazards
● Inform the consumer of the severity of the risks involved with the particular product
● Inform the consumer of the effects of the hazard
● Inform the consumer how to avoid the hazard
A warning should be highly visible and positioned as close to the area of the hazard as possible.
There are generally three types of products liability cases: negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. If you have a potential products liability case, call the experienced attorneys at Andal Law Group today to schedule a free consultation.
Assault & Battery
Assault and battery victims often believe that criminal prosecution of the person who harmed them is their only recourse. Assault victims and other victims of violent crime are typically unaware that they have the right to sue their assailant in civil court to recover damages for the injuries that they have suffered.
If you are a victim of assault and/or battery, contact the experienced attorneys at Andal Law Group today to schedule a free consultation.
