Recovering from an injury isn’t always quick or easy. When injuries significantly impact your life, The Wallace Firm is here to help.
Being injured in an accident can put your entire life on hold. All of a sudden, you have doctor appointments to deal with and you may be unable to work for a while. In some cases, an injury might have long-term effects that make it difficult for you to do things you used to enjoy doing.
The Wallace Firm fully understands how difficult this all is. Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers work with people who have sustained a wide range of injuries, including broken bones, brain injuries, paralysis, and more.
THE WALLACE PROCESS
First Steps After an Accident
If you’ve been injured in an accident, one of the first things you need to do is get yourself to safety. If you’re able to move, move to a place that will keep you out of harm’s way. Also, make sure to record as many details as possible about the scene. Take pictures and get the names and contact information for any witnesses.
Take Care of Yourself
When you have an injury of any kind, taking care of yourself needs to be your top priority. Seek medical treatment right away and make sure you follow through with the treatment prescribed by your doctor. Depending on the nature of your injury, this may involve physical and/or occupational therapy.
Report Your Accident
Many types of accidents need to be reported to someone. This can vary depending on the type of accident that caused your injury. In some cases, this might be the police or the California DMV, or it might be an insurance company or the owner/manager of the property where the accident occurred.

I just received word from your office that your team settled my case for more than what we originally discussed, and obviously I could not be happier. Thank you for taking on my case, I truly appreciate all of your hard work. You and your team have been an absolute pleasure to work with this past year. Thank you again for everything.
The Wallace Firm provided me with excellent legal services after I was struck by a motor vehicle. I’m very pleased with the settlement that Brad and his team were able to negotiate and secure. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs an attorney after being injured.

The types of damages you can collect in a personal injury lawsuit depend on the nature of your injury and the severity of your injury. Generally speaking, some of the most common types of damages involved in personal injury cases are medical expenses and lost income. However, some cases might involve damages like modifying your home to accommodate a wheelchair, funeral expenses, or the costs for having someone come help with household chores. A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you understand which types of damages you’re entitled to.
If you’re working with a lawyer and an insurance adjuster contacts you about your accident, you are allowed to tell them to contact your lawyer instead of contacting you directly.
