California Personal Injury Attorney Focuses on Safeguarding Your Interests and Fighting for Your Rights
Aggressive Los Angeles litigator knows the law and will seek compensation for your injuries
The Law Office of Lowell Steiger in Sherman Oaks, California has worked to safeguard the rights of accident victims. My 20 years of experience enables me to assess the potential value of a case and, in consultation with my client, negotiate a favorable settlement or proceed to litigation if that is in their best interests. In doing so, I help individuals who have suffered harm in a slip and fall, auto accident or other incident deal with the often debilitating effects on their physical and financial well-being and enable them to move forward with their lives.
Zealous attorney advocates for slip and fall victims
Slip and fall accidents can occur in a variety of settings, both indoors and outdoors, due to the negligence of the property owner. California follows a pure comparative negligence rule which means that, if the victim is partially at fault for the accident, the monetary value of his or her premises liability claim will be reduced by the extent to which they are at fault. For example, if the value of your claim is $100,000 and you are determined to be 10 percent responsible for the accident, your claim will be reduced to $90,000. For that reason, the property owner may allege that the victim is to blame for the fall because they should have seen the hazard, weren’t not paying attention, were wearing inappropriate footwear for the situation or should not have been in that location. Regardless, if you choose to proceed with litigation, your lawsuit must be filed prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations in California (two years from the date of the accident) or it is barred. Therefore, it is critical that any slip and fall matter be handled expeditiously.
Experienced attorney offers representation in motor vehicle accident claims
I represent victims of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents and elevator accidents. If you were seriously injured in any of these instances, or you were struck as a pedestrian and sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result, I will fight hard to get you a compensation amount that allows you to move forward with your life and pay for ongoing rehabilitation services and more. Accidents involving trucks can cause particularly severe injuries because of the size of the vehicle involved. I will examine all aspects of the accident in order to prove whether or not the truck driver, trucking company or a third party such as a manufacturer is responsible for your trucking accident injuries. As an experienced litigator, I also represent defendants in these types of accident cases.
Determined lawyer handles dog bite cases
I have significant experience taking on cases involving dog bite injuries. California operates under a strict liability rule when it comes to dog bites, which means that the owner is responsible for any harm caused by their canine regardless of whether or not the dog previously showed any aggression. If you have sustained an injury from a dog attack, I can represent you and fight to hold the responsible party accountable.
