Orange County Injury Lawyers

Car accidents or slip-and-fall accidents sometimes happen because of freak occurrences caused by inclement weather conditions, medical emergencies or unexpected natural disasters. However, in many cases accidental injuries are caused by the negligence of careless individuals or companies. Sometimes, the ultimate cause of serious injuries can be traced to corporate greed — such as when manufacturers release untested, unsafe products into the market.

Was your car accident caused by a distracted driver or hazardous road conditions? Or was your injury in fact the result of a defective auto part, such as tires, brakes, steering, accelerator, seat belt, air bag or car roof? A detailed investigation by our Orange County injury attorneys may be the only way to find out for sure. Pinpointing negligence can point the way to an appropriate source of compensation.

Experienced Representation in a Wide Range of Personal Injury Cases

At Meyers Burnett, our Irvine personal injury attorneys have extensive experience handling a wide range of accident cases, including:

Motor vehicle accidents: From single-vehicle accidents to multicar pileups, we can help get to the bottom of your accident in order to maximize your compensation.

Car accidents: One of the single biggest causes of personal injuries. We can deal with insurance companies and other legal matters so you can focus on your recovery.

Truck accidents: Semitruck accidents may be the result of negligence on the part of numerous different parties. We will thoroughly investigate the accident to help ensure that all liable parties are held accountable.

Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists have the same rights to the road as everyone else. We can help send a message that negligent driving will not be tolerated.

Bicycle accidents: Bike crashes almost always result in significant injuries that can take a long time to recover from. We can help you get the compensation you need to make it through this difficult time.

Public transit accidents: Accidents involving public transit are complicated to litigate because they are considered to be a public entity. We have significant experience with these complex cases.

Drunk driving accidents: These types of accidents can cause injuries that may take months, if not years, to recover from. That is why we will seek punitive damages to make a statement that reckless behavior will not be tolerated.

Pedestrian/crosswalk accidents: Whether the accident occurred at a stop light or in a parking lot, we can help you seek recovery from inattentive and careless drivers.

Premises liability: Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe. If you have suffered an injury due to a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall, or have been hurt in another way, we may be able to help.

Public entity claims: Accidents that occur on government or state-owned properties can involve complicated rules of law. We understand how to effectively make these types of claims.

Law enforcement injuries: If you have been injured while performing your duties as a police officer, it may be possible to file a third-party claim if another person's negligence led to your injury.

Construction accidents: Workers' compensation can go only so far to address your injuries. If an accident was caused by a third party, we will work to hold him or her accountable.

Product liability: Dangerous and defective products should never enter the marketplace. When they do, we will seek compensation from the manufacturers.

Dog bites: A dog attack may result from many factors, including negligent homeowners or the failure of a government agent, such as an animal control officer. We understand how to get maximum compensation for these traumatic experiences.

Catastrophic injuries: Severe injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury, as well as amputations or whiplash, may require a lifetime of medical care. We will work to help you get the long-term care you need.

Wrongful death: When a loved one is lost in a fatal accident, the damages go beyond mere payment of medical expenses. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for your loss, but we can send a message that reckless acts will not be tolerated.
