Personal Injury

 

The Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian provides legal services in the area of personal injury, which consists of: Auto Accidents, Premises Liability, Wrongful Death, Dog Bites, and Medical Malpractice.

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents are the most common type of personal injury cases. Nearly 2.5 million people are injured in auto accidents each year. Whether the accident is major or not, the injuries one sustains as a result of another driver’s carelessness can be severe and sometimes permanent. In many instances, the injured party does not realize they are injured until several days, even weeks, after the accident. This can lead to even more complications in the future if immediate medical attention is not sought.

In order to hold the party or parties accountable for your injuries, it is often necessary to seek legal representation to make sure all your rights under the law are properly sought.

Whether you were driving, crossing the street, or hit by a drunk driver, the Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian zealously represents its clients who have been victims of another’s carelessness in driving an automobile. Although we cannot erase the physical and mental damage that accompanies auto accidents, we can hold responsible those who are at fault.

We understand that an auto accident can lead to unexpected financial burdens such as medical expenses, loss of earnings (time missed from work), and other burdens depending on the severity of the injuries. However, we are committed to litigating the matter for our clients to have such expenses paid by those responsible for the injuries. Whether through the insurance companies or the party at fault personally, the Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian will fight to make sure that the best possible outcome is achieved for its clients.

Premises Liability

Premises liability cases arise out of injuries that occur on another’s property. However, merely owning or occupying real property does not automatically make that person liable for all injuries sustained on the property. In order to find the land owner or occupier liable, the injured party must show that there was some form of negligence on the part of the owner or occupier of the land.

To prove negligence, the following elements must be shown:

  1. Duty (depending on whether the injured party was an invitee, licensee, or trespasser);
  2. Breach of that Duty;
  3. Actual and Proximate Causation;
  4. Damages.

The injuries that are associated with premises liability incidents can be devastating and sometimes permanent. These injuries can include: multiple broken bones, spinal cord injury, brain damage, head trauma, hip dislocation, and others.

Unfortunately, dealing with insurance companies without legal representation can be very difficult as they are not always acting in the best interest of the insured. However, strong and knowledgeable representation can make all the difference in dealing with insurance companies in regards to premises liability cases.

The Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian is strongly dedicated to fighting for its clients in premises liability cases by investing the time required for each case, evaluating the details of the injury, and by taking into account all aspects. From loss of wages, medical bills, and emotional trauma, to future loss of wages, we have all the tools and resources to make sure that our clients are awarded the best possible outcome.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a type of lawsuit brought by the surviving relatives of a deceased person against a negligent party. Wrongful death cases can result from many different accidents and situations including: car accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, workplace accidents, and defective pharmaceuticals.

Whether expected or not, losing a family member is very difficult and can leave a family in distraught for many years. Unfortunately, many times the loss is caused by the irresponsible or reckless actions of another. The unexpected costs, such as medical and funeral expenses, along with lost financial contributions and pain and suffering that a family endures as a result of such a loss can be tremendous.

The Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian dedicates all its resources in helping litigate the tragic events that results from another’s negligent or intentional acts. From professional investigators to accident reconstructionist, we have all the tools required to properly investigate and litigate our client’s claims and hold the party or parties at fault responsible for the horrific events caused by them. 

We understand that losing a family member is the most tragic event a family has to endure and that monetary compensation can never replace a loved one. However, holding those accountable for their negligent or intentional acts is the very essence of the judicial system and the Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian makes sure its clients are given that full opportunity to seek justice and hold those responsible for their actions.

Dog Bites

Over 4.5 million dog bites occur each year resulting in nearly 800,000 serious medical conditions per year. The laws in California apply “strict liability” when dogs attack and injure others such that the owner of the dog is liable for the injuries caused by his/her dog. It is important to not neglect a dog bite, as serious medical consequences may arise over time.

Hamassian is determined in representing victims of dog bites; whether the victim suffered a puncture wound, laceration, amputation, fracture, infection, and/or emotional distress, the Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian will exercise its client’s rights under to law to the fullest extent to achieve the most favorable result.

Medical Malpractice

Hundreds of thousands of people are injured each year as a result of preventable medical errors. Unfortunately, in many cases people die from such errors. Because healthcare providers owe patients a duty to follow certain standards of care, healthcare providers may be held liable for medical malpractice if their conduct falls short of that standard of care and a patient is injured or dies as a result.

Whether you or someone you know has been an unfortunate victim of an emergency room error, medical laboratory error, physician error, prescription error, or incorrect medication dosage error, the Law Offices of Anthony S. Hamassian will make sure that your rights are sought to the fullest extent under the law because we understand the seriousness involving medical malpractice and the permanent and lasting consequences it may leave with you and/or your family.
