If the person is injured or experiences pain after the fall, then the property owner can be held liable if he or she was aware of the potentially unstable or slippery surface and chose not to act upon it. This is referred to as “negligence,” or the failure of the defendant to act reasonably to promote care and safety on the property. Determining if a business or person is at fault for your slip and fall damages is a complicated process that...

Medical Treatment on a Lien Basis

Beverly Hills | Auto Injury Lawyers

Medical treatment on a lien basis is not very difficult to obtain. However, a person must be aware that their treatment can be covered. This is why the personal injury attorneys in Beverly Hills at One Law Group, PC take the time to inform you of all your options after your injury. Unfortunately, not all people who suffer a personal injury can afford proper medical care and some may not have sufficient medical insurance to cover treatment. However, a personal injury case can help with sufficient medical treatment that can be paid for on a lien basis. A lien is a mandate of payment which can be in conjunction with a personal injury case. Treatment on a lien basis means that a patient doesn’t need to have medical insurance or even make an initial payment since it will likely be covered after the verdict of the personal injury case. This is an understanding that your doctor will need to have prior to treatment, and this usually includes filling out a few extra forms. In other words, you are granting a doctor who will treat you a lien against your recovery in your personal injury case, which will assure the doctor that he or...

Roadway Safety During the Holidays

beverly-hills-law-firm-for-drunk-driving-auto-accidents

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it’s important to talk about roadway safety. Whether you are driving to visit friends house, going out for dinner, or staying close to home and driving to the store, roadway safety is something that everybody should take into consideration. Over the years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has remained diligent about providing information on the dangers that are present of the roadways during the holidays. Inevitably, the roadways are busier during the holiday season than any other time of year. Busy roadways play a significant role in increasing the risk of injury from an auto accident. The NHTSA has indicated that it has increased its efforts on drunk driving prevention and seat belt safety awareness. According to the NHTSA, “The nationwide seat belt use rate was 90.1 percent in 2016” (nhtsa.gov, 2017). Unfortunately, data from the NHTSA also shows that there were approximately 781 people killed in December 2016 as a result of drunk driving auto accidents, and nearly 4,000 people died from auto accidents that involved drunk drivers. This year, the NHTSA has begun a campaign title “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” as a way to draw attention to drunk driving....

Elbow Injury from An Auto Accident

Auto Accident Attorney Beverly HIlls

Back pain, neck pain, head trauma, broken bones—these are all typical personal injuries that are caused by an auto accident. Unless you’re suffering from an elbow injury after an auto accident, not many people think that an elbow dislocation, fracture, or break is possible during an auto accident. However, elbow injuries are very common when a car is involved in a side impact accident (also known as "T-bone accidents" or "broadside collisions"). An injured elbow can be the root cause to a number of painful symptoms such as hand pain, wrist pain, shoulder pain, and headaches. The reason for this is based on the connection that the nerves have to the rest of the body since nerves in the elbow are also connected to several parts of the body as they extend from the spine. As a result, a single elbow injury can cause a list of painful symptoms that only add to your personal injury claim and auto accident injury treatment. Additionally, without the proper help, your medical bills can begin to stack up. Fortunately, the personal injury attorneys at One Law Group in Beverly Hills can help you get compensated for the injuries you’ve suffered as a result of someone’s...

What is the Statute of Limitations?

Personal injuries are tough to deal with, especially if you don’t have legal representation or are confused about how to find help. The personal injury attorneys at One Law Group can help. A personal injury can happen in situations such as in an auto accident, on a private property, on a public property, or even during a medical procedure. Regardless of how the personal injury happened, there is a limited amount of time to file a claim against the responsible party. This law is called the Statute of Limitations. The Statute of Limitations is a legal term used to define the amount of time a person has to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for causing the personal injury. In California, the statute of limitation is two years from the time the injury occurred. However, if the injury is not immediately apparent to the victim, they will have one year from the date the injury was discovered. The purpose of these limitations is to secure evidence that is current and to ensure the quality of witness testimony. If you have been in an accident and suffered a personal injury because of another person’s recklessness, the personal injury attorneys at One Law...

The Cost of Personal Injury

A slip and fall in a public place can occur at the most unexpected moment and leave a person with both a bit of embarrassment and pain at the same time. The worst part is that the pain may stick around for a few days or weeks, depending on what was injured during the fall. One of the most common and irritating injuries that can happen is a bruised tailbone, which happens when a person falls on their buttocks. The cost of the injury, on the other hand, can range anywhere from $200 to $400 and that’s not even including the medical care you receive. If you don’t have insurance, then the cost can quickly jump to $1,500 to $3,000, and this isn’t even counting the pain, suffering, and time off work you had to take because of this injury. However, there is hope. If you’ve suffered from a tailbone injury because of a slip and fall while in a public place or private property, depending on your situation, you may be entitled to seek damages under premises liability. Call One Law Group in Beverly Hills at (844) 626-1LAW to schedule an appointment today. The location of the slip and fall injury is...

Personal Injuries from Bus Accidents

Whether a person is taking the bus as part of a daily routine or traveling between cities, people are entrusting the bus driver with their lives. Many buses such as school buses or city buses do not require their passengers to wear seatbelts, which can leave them vulnerable during an auto accident. Although there are fewer bus accidents than car or motorcycle accidents, every year hundreds of people are injured in bus accidents. In fact, from 2004 to 2014, 33 percent of fatal crashes involved buses, according the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (fmcsa.gov, 2016). If you have been injured in a bus accident, it is of the upmost importance that you do not delay. Call the experienced lawyers of One Law Group in Beverly Hills at (844) 626-1LAW. Most federal and state laws consider buses “common carriers.” Essentially, a common carrier is a business that gets paid to transport people or goods from one location to another. Common carriers include all bus types such as tour buses, commercial buses, school buses, and city buses. A common carrier is responsible for the safety of its passengers and products. Successful lawsuits against common carriers are typically based on negligence or intentional acts of...
