Car Accidents in Long Beach
Since Long Beach is located south of downtown Los Angeles, people are constantly traveling to and from these huge cities. Because of this, people are sharing the roadways at growing rates as the population grows. With several freeways running through Long Beach, commuters can be taken northwest or southeast to various places for work, recreation, and many other reasons. One thing to remember is that Long Beach was rated as one of the most “walk-able” of all fifty largest U.S. cities, which means that pedestrians are growing in intensity. Because of this, we must also be careful of the accidents that coincide with pedestrian and car use.

Workplace Injuries in Long Beach
There are many businesses in Long Beach, a vast majority of them being quite large in nature like Epson America. Long Beach has a rich history in people taking pride in the work they do, which can be seen through the large oil fields erected during the 1920s. However, just as many people will work in California, just as many could become injured all the same. This is why we will do what we can to protect your rights as a worker after you have been injured through on-the-job negligence. If you have been injured in the workplace, most of the time you might be told that workers’ compensation benefits are your only means for receiving compensation for your injuries altogether. This is far from the truth, because in some cases you will be able to bring a lawsuit depending on your unique circumstances.
There are actually many exceptions that you may be entitled to in regards to receiving compensation for a workplace injury by other means. Here are just a few of those: If you were injured by a defective product, you may be able to bring a product liability claim. If you were injured by a toxic substance, you could bring a suit against the manufacturer of that substance. If your employer acted in outright, gross negligence, you could bring a personal injury lawsuit against your employer. Lastly, if a third party caused your injury, you could bring a lawsuit against that person as an individual. We will help you understand how you can bring this lawsuit and how it will benefit you in the end. As your attorney, we work to protect you and your rights! (3)
