LOS ANGELES, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A responsible spouse or caretaker must have a plan for even the worst case scenario.  However, nobody wants to consider the possibility of a serious injury befalling their loved ones or their selves, leaving many people ill prepared when injury does occur. This has led to many misconceptions regarding personal injury litigation and what a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles can do. Fortunately, the years of intensive experience devoted to representation of injured people and their families by the Law Offices of Burg and Brock have given their lead personal injury attorney in Los Angeles, Cameron Brock, an expert understanding of legal matters regarding personal injury.

With over 193 million licensed drivers in the U.S., auto collision cases are among the most commonly filed personal injury cases. Many drivers assume that because they are insured, they will receive a fair settlement in cases involving auto collisions. It's important to remember, though, that the primary goal of an insurance company is to minimize costs and increase profitability. Often, this means offering their client a quick settlement instead of drawing out a legal case, even if their low-cost settlement doesn't adequately reflect a justice in a particular case.

Many individuals involved in auto collisions also worry that auto accident litigation will take years before a resolution is made. However, in California, courts are required to try most auto accident cases within one year, leading victims of most collisions to receive reparations quickly and efficiently. Founder of the firm Cameron Brock can attest to this, as he has defended clients suffering injuries from automotive product defects including commercial truck accidents, trash truck accidents, government liability for accidents on public property, and as a motorcycle accident attorney in Los Angeles.

Slip and fall injuries are another type of litigation that can affect almost anyone, though most lay people know very little regarding what constitutes fault in a slip and fall case. In general, a property owner will be considered to have knowledge of a dangerous or hazardous condition if it is permanent in nature. For example, if the tile floor of a restaurant has become slick due to a leaky pipe, it would have to be proved that the person responsible knew about, or should have known about the condition. Details like this may seem mundane to the layperson, but these are the sort of details that the Law Offices of Burg and Brock have dealt with in depth since 1996. Cameron Brock has built a reputation as a successful slip and fall lawyer, boasting a 97% success rate with verdicts and settlements, as well as over $100 million in damages on behalf of his clients.

If you or a loved one has been injured and you believe a business or public place to be at fault, contact the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc. for a free initial consultation before making any assumptions regarding the case or the likelihood of damages awarded.
