Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney
Helping Accident Victims in Greater Los Angeles Since 1987
Offices Conveniently Located in Simi Valley, Calabasas, Pasadena, Los Angeles,
Palmdale, Sherman Oaks, Valencia & Westlake Village
The personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus have handled
thousands of injury cases for clients in the greater Los Angeles area for more than 30 years and recovered
hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on their behalf. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident, trust
our firm to pursue maximum financial compensation under personal injury law.
Over the past decade, our law firm has settled or resolved 500 cases per
year on average. The average length of time it takes to settle and resolve a personal injury
case is anywhere from 7 months to 1 ½ years. That being said, we
are proud to have settled far more personal injury cases than most other
law firms can handle in one years' time. We only file lawsuits when
necessary. Lawsuits are necessary in cases involving disputed liability (
who is at fault) and/or disputed damages (value of compensation).
Let Us Deal with the Insurance Company
Lead Attorney Gerald Marcus got his start as a private investigator for
one of the largest personal injury law firms in the San Fernando Valley.
As a negligence investigator, he became an adept in the insurance claims
process. We also have a number of investigators on staff at the firm who
know how to deal with insurance companies. Insurance company investigations
often are not completely thorough, which can result in less money for
the accident victim.
We fight to make sure this doesn't happen.
Our firm represents victims in all types of
personal injury claims, including those that involve:
Motor Vehicle Accident Cases
At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, the cases we handle most frequently
are typically motor vehicle accident cases such as car, truck and motorcycle
collisions. We also handle similar cases such as public transportation
accidents, pedestrian accident,s and bicycle accidents. After an accident,
you may be asking:
- How am I going to pay for repairs?
- Who is going to pay my medical bills?
- Do I get compensated for the time I have to take off of work to recover?
A car accident can turn your world upside down, but our firm is here to
ensure that you are taken care of. You've been through enough already.
Let us deal with the insurance company, the paperwork, and other details
of your case. We fight for victims so they get the compensation they deserve
in a timely manner.
Slip & Fall and Other Premises Liability Cases
Another type of case we handle frequently is slip & falls which is a type of
premises liability. When property owners fail to maintain safe premises, or let hazards on
their property persist without warning against them or fixing them, they
are responsible for the resulting injuries to visitors and licensees.
To establish a successful slip & fall or "trip and fall"
claim, a plaintiff and his or her attorney must effectively show that:
- The defendant is the actual owner of the property or party responsible
for maintaining the property;
- There was a hazardous condition on the property;
- The plaintiff was injured on the property because of said hazard;
- The slip and fall resulted in damages (physical/emotional injuries)
Workers' Compensation & Third Party Injury Claims
The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus also handle on the job injuries that result in
workers' compensation and third party injury claims. If you've been injured at work, you
usually cannot file a lawsuit against your employer because your employer
will provide you with workers' compensation insurance benefits. However,
you may be able to file a lawsuit against a third party for your injuries.
Our Los Angeles law firm also helps clients who have disputes over workers'
