What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
A personal injury involves a victim suffering physical or mental harm. Typical injuries can range from minor scrapes and bruises to lacerations, fractures, brain injuries, permanent disabilities and more.
In the majority of personal injury cases in Los Angeles, some form of negligence must be involved. This means that the injury was caused by the negligent, careless, reckless, or malicious actions or inaction of another person or party. When this happens, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed.
The best Los Angeles personal injury lawyers will help victims file lawsuits aimed at securing compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Medical expenses
- Other costs relating to the injury or accident
In tort law, the victim – referred to as the plaintiff – has suffered injury or loss due to someone else's negligence. Torts are a civil action, not criminal, which means that the wrongdoer is charged financially. From deposition to discovery, Bisnar Chase will wade through the often-confusing injury laws for you and allow you to focus on recovery.
Pay Nothing If We Don't Win Your Personal Injury Case
Our law firm promises to charge you nothing if we don't win your case, protecting you from financial liability throughout the lawsuit. You will not be overwhelmed by medical fees and expenses related to the case while it is ongoing, and will not have to face out-of-pocket expenses.
In other words, we front all the costs to run your case. If we do not win, you will not owe us anything. If we win for you, a pre-agreed percentage of any settlement will go to our firm. This 'No Win, No Fee' promise is one which our law practice has stood by since 1978.
Why Do You Need a Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you are involved in an accident in Los Angeles, hiring the right personal injury attorney is important. You need someone who understands your rights and has the skill and experience needed to fight for justice.
Some people might decide against hiring an attorney, taking on the case themselves instead. But this is not the wisest course of action. A lawyer who specializes in injury claims and accident cases will be able to maximize the value of your lawsuit by building the strongest case possible. For example, a car accident lawyer in Los Angeles will understand the streets, intersections, and dangers associated with the area.
When you are searching for the best personal injury attorney for your case, look for:
- Longevity and a high success rate in cases similar to yours
- Lawyers offering a free consultation and 'No Win, No Fee' guarantee
- Experience operating in the Los Angeles area
- Excellent communicators
- Trial lawyers with the resources to fight for justice
Bisnar Chase can fulfill these requirements. Our personal injury law firm has been operating for more than 40 years with a 99% success rate. We work on contingency and have the resources of a large law firm while providing the personal touch of a family business.
Dealing With Insurance Companies in Personal Injury Claims
Many injury cases involve settlements through the at-fault party's insurance company. This is not as easy as it sounds, because insurance companies are loyal to their bottom line. They do not want to pay out any more than they have to and want nothing more than to deny your claim. The insurance adjuster is not your friend, and will often try to lowball a victim.
Insurance adjusters are professional negotiators – and that's exactly why you need a professional on your side too. An LA injury lawyer will help secure a fair verdict or settlement.
The dedicated Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at Bisnar Chase are also highly skilled trial lawyers. Not every firm is equipped to go to trial, but we are. This means that they will not hesitate to take your case before a jury if a fair settlement cannot be reached.

Common Los Angeles Personal Injuries
There are a wide variety of injuries that accident victims can endure. Injuries can range from being minor to catastrophic and can even result in death. Below are some of the most common injuries experienced in the Los Angeles area.
- Brain injury: Every year more than 2.8 million patients are admitted to hospitals due to a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries can be an outcome of a slip and fall, a car accident or traffic collision, or any other serious impact. Symptoms of a brain injury can even present themselves as late as six months after the incident. It is strongly suggested that you visit a doctor for an examination after an accident.
- Broken bones: Injury victims frequently suffer broken bones due to harsh accident impacts. An arm, leg, or rib fracture can leave you in significant pain and may prevent you from working, as well as presenting ongoing health issues. In some cases a broken bone will not be immediately apparent but will result in discomfort, swelling or bruising.
- Dental injuries: When involved in a personal injury incident, losing teeth or having chipped teeth is typical. Accident victims often obtain facial injuries by hitting the steering wheel with great force, or by an airbag exploding in their face. In more serious cases teeth are not the only part of a mouth to be broken but a jaw can also be fractured as a result of a personal injury accident.
Other common injuries can include:
- Cuts and lacerations
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Emotional trauma, depression, and anxiety

There are key elements that need to be present when proving negligence. The first is a term known as proof of duty of care.
The plaintiff will have to prove that the defendant owed a duty of care. For example:
“The legal duty of care is created when a physician agrees to treat a patient who has requested his or her services. In determining what that duty requires, physicians should consider whether the care they are providing is that which a “reasonable physician” would provide under the circumstances.”
The second element that needs to be present is that the defendant failed to provide that duty of care to the plaintiff. This means that the defendant was negligent.

I first contacted Bisnar Chase to request a donation for my organization's back to school giveaway. Kristi was amazing. Though she couldn't promise the 500 we requested she knew they would be able to donate at least 100 backpacks. I was then connected to Danielle, who organizes distribution and filling of backpacks and is as equally amazing. Needless to say, Bisnar Chase went ABOVE AND BEYOND! Today, we picked up our donation of 400+ backpacks filled with school supplies and hygiene kits. I am stunned by their amazing commitment to serve the community. I can't wait to see the faces of our parents and their children when they receive their new backpacks and school supplies! Thank you Bisnar Chase for all that you do!
