Pursuing complete recovery for people hurt in car crashes
A car crash can change your life in a second. If you have been severely injured in any kind of auto accident, you have a right to seek compensation for the harm done to you. Lipton & Piper will answer all questions you might have on the legal issues involved in such a case, including:
- Statute of limitations — In California, you have two years from the date of an accident to file an injury claim and three years to file a suit for property damage, such as auto body work.
- Insurance claims — Our attorneys will fight for the fairest recovery possible and will not let you be intimidated by insurance companies into accepting subpar settlement offers.
- Accident investigation — With our knowledge of the area and our background litigating auto claims, we can develop a detailed picture of what occurred in your accident to seek full compensation.
You can rely on our attorneys to handle the legal issues in a thorough, professional manner so that you can concentrate on your medical and emotional well-being.
Detailed advice on the special considerations in truck accident cases
The large tractor-trailers traveling on California roads are subject to specific federal and state regulations. If you’ve been in a crash with a truck, we can investigate to see if the rules on speed, weight or driver rest were violated. Trucking companies and their insurers often fight hard against accident claims, so you need a dedicated and resourceful attorney to help you seek a fair recovery for serious injuries.
Knowledgeable counsel for vehicle rollover litigation
The popularity of sport-utility vehicles has given rise to a wave of rollover accidents due to their structure and weight distribution. Our attorneys are familiar with the technical and legal aspects of these cases. If you’ve been hurt in a rollover vehicle accident, whether or not you were in an SUV, Lipton & Piper can advise you on whether a claim exists against the manufacturer and other potentially responsible parties.
Attorneys seeking justice for the victims of dog bites
California law holds dog owners to strict standards when it comes to controlling their pet. Even if a dog has not acted aggressively before, owners can be held liable for injuries resulting from bites. If you’ve been harmed in a dog attack, our attorneys can gather the necessary evidence to litigate a claim to recover damages.
Assisting individuals hurt in slip and fall accidents caused by negligence
Lipton & Piper helps plaintiffs obtain compensation after they’ve been harmed in a slip and fall accident on someone’s premises. Defendants and insurers often try to blame the victim in these cases, by alleging that they were not paying attention or were acting recklessly. This should not dissuade you from pursuing your claim. California follows the comparative negligence standard, which allows a plaintiff to collect proportional damages even if they were partially at fault.
