Westlake Village, CA Personal Injury Attorneys

If you’re facing an insurance company, put experience on your side

The accident itself was over in a moment. The consequences can last a lifetime. It’s not just the cost of medical treatment; it’s the effects on your family, your career, your life, and your future. You deserve full compensation for what you’ve lost due to the accident. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help.

The Swanson Law Group is proud to help injured people in Westlake Village, the Conejo Valley and throughout Southern California rebuild their lives. We know the ways the insurance companies try to pressure and manipulate injured people, and we won’t stand for it. Schedule your free consultation at our Westlake Village office today.

What to do if you’re injured in Westlake Village

First, unless you must leave to get emergency medical attention, remain at the scene. Call the police and make sure you get the name of the investigating officer. If you were hurt on someone’s premises, report the incident to the owner or someone responsible for the premises. Keep your comments at the scene brief: don’t say anything admitting fault, and don’t sign anything until you’ve spoken with a lawyer.

You need to start gathering evidence right away: take pictures of the scene, get contact information for witnesses, and so on. You also need to get medical attention, even if you feel fine. Get checked out by a doctor at an emergency room, urgent care center, or your primary care provider. This not only protects your health but also creates a record of your injury.

Finally, you need to contact us as soon as possible, before you talk to the insurance company. We can intervene to secure evidence and protect your legal rights while you focus on healing. You can come to our office in Westlake Village, or if you’re not able to do so, we can come to you. There’s no cost, no obligation, and no pressure, just answers about your legal options.

We handle all types of personal injury cases in Westlake Village

Our attorneys have the experience and resources to represent injured people in any situation. We represent people injured in any type of accident caused by negligence, including:

  • Car accidents: Thousands of people drive through the Westlake Village area every day, and unfortunately, some of them fail to take appropriate caution. A crash, even at a relatively low speed, can leave you with life-altering injuries. We know the law, we know your rights, and we know how to take on car insurance companies.
  • Truck accidents: Heavy trucks are a ubiquitous sight on major roads like US-101 and CA-23, and when their operators don’t take appropriate caution, they can cause devastating accidents. The trucking companies will have rapid response teams on the scene immediately to protect their interests. You need an experienced truck accident lawyer with a winning track record to level the playing field.
  • Motorcycle Accidents: There’s no place like southern California to enjoy the open road, but unfortunately, too many drivers fail to share the road with bikers. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident in the Westlake Village area, you’re looking at a long and bumpy road to recovery. We know how to overcome those challenges and build better futures for injured riders.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: Being hit by a car is one of the most frightening things that can happen to anyone, and life-altering injuries are far too common. If you were hurt in a pedestrian accident, you’re facing many more challenges on the road ahead. We will walk with you, guide you, and protect your legal rights every step of the way.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Property owners in the Conejo Valley have responsibilities under California law. If you were hurt in a slip and fall or similar accident, you need an attorney on your side who can hold them accountable. We understand California’s premises liability laws, and we have the experience and winning track record needed to fight for a better future for you.
  • Wrongful Death: There is nothing more upsetting than losing a loved one in a preventable accident. No legal action can bring your loved one back, but we can fight for accountability and compensation to help your family move forward. We would be honored to protect your rights under California’s wrongful death laws.

This is not an exhaustive list. If you’ve been hurt in any type of accident caused by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, we invite you to reach out to us.

Your strong advocate from start to finish

As soon as an accident happens, the insurance companies start building their plan to protect their bottom line, which means paying you as little as possible, or nothing at all. They will come up with mysterious reasons to delay or deny claims. They may try to pressure you into accepting a “lowball” offer to sign away your rights, or even manipulate you into thinking the accident was your fault. We don’t put up with those tactics. We know how they operate, and we know your rights. Our job is to stand as a shield between you and the insurance company to protect your interests – and your future.

That starts with a thorough investigation to get to the bottom of how and why your injury happened. We also take the time to listen to your story and find out how the injury has affected your life. It’s not just the medical bills and physical pain; it’s the effects on your family, your career, and your future. We work with expert witnesses and pore over documents to build a strong case for the full and fair compensation you need to rebuild your life.

Many of our cases settle out of court, because when the insurance company sees we’re prepared to take them to trial, they usually pay up. If they won’t offer a full and fair settlement, though, we are ready to take them to court and argue your case before a judge and jury. This can be a difficult, emotionally taxing process, but we are here for you every step of the way, letting you know what to expect and making sure you’re always prepared for the next step.

A law firm dedicated to your future

Our work is about much more than financial compensation; it’s about helping you heal. We have relationships with outstanding doctors and helpful professionals throughout the Conejo Valley, the same people we’d go to if we were in your situation ourselves. We will connect you with resources and serve as a counselor and advocate for you, both during and after the resolution of your case. We know the value of health, and we know what it takes to get your life back when something has been taken from you.

We do this on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay us a cent out of pocket. If we win your case, our fee is a percentage of the recovery; if we don’t win, you don’t pay us. In the meantime, we invest our own time and resources into the case as we work toward a better resolution. The insurance companies have their own attorneys and representatives protecting their interests. We can level the playing field.

The sooner you get us involved, the better. Under California law, you have up to two years from the date of the accident to take legal action but building a strong personal injury case should start much earlier. We need to gather evidence and start the process of dealing with the insurance company while you focus on healing. Don’t go it alone after an accident.
