Why Do I Need to Hire a Laguna Beach Personal Injury Lawyer?

While it may be technically possible to handle a personal injury claim on your own, doing so would be incredibly difficult when dealing with the ramifications of the incident. Your personal injury may involve painful physical injuries and substantial economic damage that strain your household. Instead of making an already challenging situation even worse by trying to handle it alone, have an experienced Laguna Beach personal injury lawyer represent you in your claim.

The right attorney can handle your personal injury claim for you and reveal avenues of compensation you would have probably overlooked on your own. You not only boost your chance of success with a personal injury claim by hiring an attorney but also the total amount of compensation you ultimately secure from the defendant. Your Laguna Beach personal injury lawyer can have a tremendously positive influence on the outcome of your case.

Common Types of Personal Injury Claims

The attorneys at Easton & Easton have successfully represented clients in many personal injury cases. Some of the most commonly filed personal injury claims in the state are:

  • Motor vehicle accident claims. Vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury claims when car insurance can’t cover a victim’s damages.
  • Drunk driving accident claims. This type of vehicle accident is likely to generate criminal proceedings against the responsible driver. They will face criminal charges for driving under the influence (DUI) and civil liability for damages they cause others.
  • Premises liability claims. If you were injured due to a property owner’s failure to maintain their property or take care of a known safety issue, you have the right to seek redress against them under state premises liability laws.
  • Product liability claims. If a defective consumer product injured you, the manufacturer might be liable for your damages.
  • Catastrophic injury claims. A “catastrophic” injury is any injury that results in permanent harm. For example, spinal cord injuries can potentially cause permanent paralysis. If you or someone you love suffered a catastrophic injury, you need a Laguna Beach personal injury attorney who can help you hold the at-fault party accountable for the damages they caused.

Easton & Easton has successfully guided many past clients through a significant number of personal injury cases in the Laguna Beach, CA, area. We know how to gather the evidence a client needs to establish fault for their damages and maximize our client’s recovery.

For more than 25 years, attorney Douglas Easton has earned Martindale-Hubbell’s highest AV Preeminent* peer review rating for ethical standards and legal ability.

Damages and Compensation in a Personal Injuries Case

California’s personal injury laws allow plaintiffs to seek compensation for all damages they incur due to the actions of others. Success with your personal injury claim will require you to identify the party or parties responsible for your recent personal injury and prove they directly caused your claimed damages. Your Laguna Beach personal injury lawyer can not only help you recover compensation for economic damages like property damage, medical bills, and lost income but also long-term damages like lost earning capacity and noneconomic damages that compensate for your pain and suffering.

Many factors determine the potential value of a personal injury claim, and you need legal counsel you can trust to guide you through your case proceedings. Easton & Easton will help you accurately calculate the full scope of your claimable economic damages. We will also help you determine a fair amount of pain and suffering to include in your claim that reflects the severity of your experience.

Personal Injury Law Laguna Beach FAQs

Q: How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost in California?
A:
Most personal injury attorneys do not charge clients any upfront legal fees. Instead, most offer contingency fee billing that ensures the client only pays legal fees when they win their case. The attorney takes a percentage of the client’s case award as their fee. Attorneys generally determine their contingency fee percentages based on the complexity of the case and its potential value, but most fall within 25% to 40% of the total case award.

Q: Is It Worth Getting a Laguna Beach Personal Injury Lawyer?
A:
Hiring an experienced attorney is an investment into your own recovery. A reasonable attorney increases your chances of winning your case and will likely obtain much more compensation for your damages than you could have obtained on your own. Ultimately, it is always worth having legal representation on your side after a personal injury.

Q: What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A:
Your personal injury attorney will handle your case proceedings for you while you rest and recover. You will not have to worry about meeting strict court filing deadlines as your legal team will handle all of your case’s procedural requirements for you.

What Our
CLIENTS SAY

Coming out of my first auto accident as an adult, a very difficult and scary time to navigate and understand, I was so incredibly thankful to have been put in contact with Easton & Easton. I honestly was lost with how to handle paperwork, doctors, medical costs and what next steps were, and from the moment I spoke with Travis Easton and my case manager Katie, my mind was put at ease. They have made the entire process stress free for me as I recovered, and I am so grateful for them and their genuine care for my case. Communication from the start has been fantastic, especially making clear what my expectations for the entire process would look like, and I truly believe they have my best interest at heart. 100% I would recommend their firm for anyone that is needing representation!

Sofia Sanchez

I could not be more pleased with the services provided by the Law Offices of W. Douglas Easton. The senior partner Mr. Easton took the time to meet with me and my wife while I was still in the hospital, where he gave my family hope that there was light at the end of a very long, and very dark tunnel. Matt Easton then worked my case, and because of his dedication, experience and expertise I received a settlement that was larger than I EVER thought possible. It was truly astounding! Matt and the entire team at Easton & Easton looked out for me throughout my recovery, and in the end they gave me my life back. Five stars is not enough. Thanks Matt! Thanks Easton & Easton!

Dan Campbell

Logan Ross

I can’t say enough amazing things about my experience with Travis Easton at Easton & Easton. Travis and his entire team (Katie, Amy, Dee, Michelle, & Araceli) are phenomenal. It provided me a lot of comfort to know I was being so well taken care of. I was especially impressed that every document for the case was perfectly written and specific to me. Nothing was generic, which shows the level of care and attention they put into each individual case. I had such a great experience and would highly recommend Travis Easton and his firm to anyone going through a personal injury. Travis took a bad situation and made the best of it for me. Thank you again, I’m forever grateful!!

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

Jeffrey N.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless. They were so understanding and helpful! The entire thing was a gigantic mess, yet Travis managed to make it run like clockwork. I would HIGHLY recommend Easton & Easton! If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!

Mark B.

They are the best law firm in Orange County period. Choosing them to represent me was the best decision of my life.
My life changed in a matter of seconds after a catastrophic spinal cord injury that left me disabled. Brian Easton and his team worked on my case non stop for 3 years and provided me the justice I deserved. I couldn’t have been more content.
I was treated with utmost respect and I felt like I was being represented by a close family member. The responses to my questions were quick and clear. What E & E has done for me is phenomenal.
My sincere thanks to Brian, Matt, Travis, Doug, Gabriel and Amera. They are what they are because of their dedication to provide high quality and professional service to their clients.

Vamsi P.

Brian Easton and his team, Gabe Mendoza and Amera Hajali, helped me during a very difficult time in my life. I had a significant injury from a car accident, and wound up seeking out Easton & Easton when I was having difficulties getting help from my doctors. The Easton team took a lot of stress off of me while acting as my advocates to help me get the care I needed, and saw my case all the way through to a healthy settlement.

They are the BEST!

Jennifer P.

Claudia C.

I would highly recommend Easton & Easton.
I was rear ended on my home and pushed into a semi-truck. I was not sure how to go about even using an attorney.
Brian, Gab and Amera were so good about helping me thru the process and representing me.
I was able to concentrate on getting myself better knowing they had my back, taking care of the details and keeping me informed along the way
