What Our Clients Are Saying About US
Very competent and professional personal injury attorney. I contacted Inna Gorin for a personal injury case that happened overseas. Inna impressed me with her professionalism and poise. She took the time to do the research and communicate clearly with me every step of the way. She was able to negotiate a significant payout. I was delighted with her services! – Alisa M.
Reputable lawyer. I couldn't be more thankful for having found Inna. After my car accident, I was at a total loss. No car, injured and dealing with a non-responsive insurance company. She recovered the money for my car, but she directed me towards some fantastic doctors. I couldn't have done it without her. I wouldn't look any further if you need a personal injury lawyer. She gets the job done! – Bethany N.
A top-notch attorney with attention to detail! Where do I begin–Inna did a fantastic job! She was on top of her game and got me a settlement for more than I expected. In obtaining fair and just compensation, her follow-up with the defendant's insurance company was on par with what all attorneys should strive for–getting the most for their clients!! By the way, I referred her to a friend of mine who also needed an injury n attorney. Inna did an amazing job as well! – George R.
I got in a car accident where I was rear-ended and had no idea what to do. My neck was hurting, and I instantly had a headache. I started calling around that afternoon for accident and injury attorneys that I had found online. Inna was the only one to get back to me. Also, they scheduled a time to meet up the next day. Btw, it was a holiday. They guided me through the entire process to get the proper medical treatment for my neck and back injuries and handled the problematic insurance agencies. They recovered 100% of the money that was owed. Not only that, Inna and her team are wonderful people to work with. Very trustworthy. I felt like I was in good hands the entire process. The best phone call I could have made! If not, I would have been out of a car and still injured. Thank you! – Brittany S.
Common Personal Injury Cases Our Law Firm Takes
Personal injury defines a broad category of legal issues that may require legal assistance from an injury lawyer. Our injury law firm has provided our clients in southern California with the necessary legal representation to obtain the maximum recovery possible under the law. We have been able to achieve success in a variety of fields in personal injury cases, including car accidents, rear-end accidents, T-bone accidents, DUI accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall, wrongful death, construction accidents, traumatic brain injuries, concussion, whiplash injury, spine injuries, back injuries, premises liability, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others. We accept qualified cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning our clients will never have to pay our attorneys until we successfully recover money and damages for their injuries. In every case, we take the time to fully evaluate how an accident occurred to determine whether a person has a legal claim. In some cases, this may involve accident reconstruction specialists, medical experts, or other specialized consultants to get the bottom of why an accident occurred.
Under California personal injury laws, victims of serious injuries caused by negligence or intentional acts of other individuals are legally entitled to just compensation for all their losses. Some of the losses that may be recovered in an injury civil lawsuit include all current medical and health-related expenses, future medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages and loss of future income due to an inability to work, pain and suffering, punitive damages, and more.
How an Injury Lawyer Can Help You Recover Compensation
As an accident victim, you may be wondering how exactly retaining a lawyer will help you, mainly if the insurance company has already made a settlement offer. It is essential to understand that insurance companies are more concerned with their profits than they are with your well-being and will do everything they can to pay out as little as possible. As a result, accident victims must know what their case is worth to assess any settlement offer they are considering accurately.
When you retain our injury law firm, we will thoroughly evaluate your case and determine how much it may be worth. It is essential to keep in mind that it is not enough to look at pay stubs and medical expenses when determining the value of a claim – you also need to address issues like the value of physical and emotional pain and suffering and the way that your injuries will affect you into the future.
Some of the specific ways that a personal injury lawyer will help you after you are hurt after an accident include the following:
- Determine whether you have a claim,
- Identify all parties that could potentially be held liable,
- Determine how much your claim is worth,
- Collect evidence in support of your claim,
- Negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf,
- File a lawsuit in the appropriate court,
- Represent you in court.
Of course, the specific ways that a personal injury attorney will help you depend on the particular circumstances of your case. Not every case goes to trial, and sometimes insurance companies are willing to settle a claim for an appropriate amount when they learn that an attorney has become involved. To receive compensation, you must establish fault and a responsible party. Most accidents are not intentional acts, but it doesn't mean the other party is not accountable. As your attorney, our job is to prove to the court and insurance company the other party caused you harm by their actions that are not considered reasonable. We may demonstrate that the other party was responsible and that you suffered physically, financially, and emotionally due to your injuries. Our primary goal is to review the evidence to prove you are a victim and build a solid personal injury claim.

DO I NEED A LAWYER FOR MY CAR ACCIDENT OR INJURY CASE?
In most cases, yes you do. If you have sustained any type of injury in an accident, you need to immediately consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to protect your legal rights. Don't attempt to talk to the other individual's insurance company as their goal is to settle a claim for the least amount possible. Most people think they will be treated fairly when the insurance representative tells you they want to resolve the issue.
They might even say you don't need a lawyer. After exchanging information, they will make a small settlement offer and ask you to sign a release. Insurance companies will often use their financial strength to push you around. Don't agree to any settlement offers without consulting with a lawyer. A seasoned personal injury lawyer will help you even the playing field against insurance companies. Let's negotiate on your behalf. We will help you process the claim properly and get the full compensation you deserve.
Without qualified legal representation in handling car accident injury claims, you could miss deadlines and statute of limitations that could waive your right to pursue a claim. If you allow a statute of limitations to expire on a claim without filing a lawsuit, you will lose an opportunity to obtain compensation for your injuries. This would force you to pay out of your pocket for damages, even though the fault of another person caused them.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY?
There is NO cost upfront. We do not charge our clients until we settle the case. We work on a contingency fee basis. This means the legal fees are paid out of the settlement or jury award in your case. The contingency fee total depends on what stage the case is in. The closer the matter is to trial, the large the contingency due to the outlay of needed costs. If you don't recover anything, you pay us nothing. We offer a case review as part of our initial risk-FREE consultation.
CAN I RESOLVE MY CASE WITHOUT GOING TO COURT?
Yes, most likely. The majority of personal injury cases are never taken to court. They are settled before trial by a mutual agreement between both parties. According to official statistics, eight out of ten cases are resolved without a trial. Settlements offer an opportunity to avoid costs and delays and result in a higher recovery. If all settlement attempts fail, you should file a lawsuit and litigate in court.
Litigation is the process of taking a personal injury case through the civil court system. To put it simply, litigation is costly and must be considered a factor in our strategy when it's time to decide whether to settle a personal injury case. We also consider the cost to the opposing party, typically the insurance company representing the defendant. The high cost of litigation is the primary reason insurance companies will settle injury claims rather than challenge them in the court system.
As noted, we work on contingency, meaning we receive a portion of whatever you recover and receive nothing if they don't win your case. Insurance companies don't work on a contingency fee agreement. They have to pay their lawyers by the hour, which means their legal fees get very high quickly. Another factor to consider is the high cost of expert witnesses, including medical professionals and accident reconstructionists.
Many experts will charge thousands of dollars on a single injury case. Finally, another critical decision is the amount of time it takes to resolve a personal injury case through the Los Angeles County Courts. If you decide to proceed in court, it could take years to pay an award. You are negotiating a settlement before the trial has the added significant benefit of expediting the payment for your injuries. We cannot predict if your case can be settled before trial, but our attorneys may find it necessary to go to the trial to receive the maximum recovery for your injuries.
SHOULD I SPEAK WITH THE OTHER PERSON'S INSURANCE COMPANY?
No. not. Do not provide a statement, sign any document, or accept a settlement offer without consulting with our law firm. Don't be fooled. Insurance adjusters are not on your side. It's their job to settle your case for the least amount possible. Any statements you make to an insurance representative could be used against you to deny or reduce the value of your injury claim. Insurance adjusters will typically offer fake sympathy to gain your trust. They may also tell you that you don't need a personal injury lawyer because they will take care of your claim. Don't believe them, and remember their ultimate goal to save the insurance company money by delaying payment and giving you the smallest amount possible. If you don't retain an experienced attorney, you may never know the actual value of your injury case.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO FILE A PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUIT
Typically, a victim has two years from the date of the accident to settle the claim or file a lawsuit. This is commonly known as the statute of limitations, which is the period from the date of injury to the date within where legal action must be taken. This means that if you fail to file an injury claim or lawsuit within this time frame, you will lose your legal right to make any claim. There are different statute of limitations for different types of personal injury cases. In California, the two-year period applies to most personal injury cases.
However, there are exceptions to this rule. If your injury case involves a government entity, your claim must typically be filed within six months from the date of the accident. This is just another reason you need to call our office as soon as possible after your accident.
WHAT DAMAGES AM I ENTITLED TO RECOVER?
The damages you may be entitled to recover will depend on the type of injury case and the damages you have sustained. If you suffer an injury that requires medical treatment, then current and future medical expenses can be recovered, along with past and future lost wages from your job.
You may also be eligible to recover other damages, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and other inconveniences associated with your injury. In some cases, you may be able to recover punitive damages, which are intended to punish the responsible party when their actions were intentional or reckless. The goal of punitive damages is to discourage the defendant and other individuals from engaging in similar harmful behavior in the future. A typical example where punitive damages may be available is when an individual sustains injuries from a drunk driver.
In car accident cases, you are entitled to recover the damages to your vehicle and the loss of use of your car for the time you were without your vehicle because it was damaged. Call a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at our law firm for more information about what type of damages you may recover in your case.
HOW MUCH WILL I RECOVER IN MY INJURY CASE?
The facts and circumstances in every personal injury case are unique. Therefore, there is no way to accurately predict what your case will be worth in the end. Our personal injury lawyers will need to first closely review your injury case to determine what you may be able to recover on your claim. Our attorneys will take a close look at a wide variety of different factors to decide on the potential maximum recovery from your personal injury case. The factors that will influence the value of your injury case include:
- The exact type of losses you have sustained from your injury,
- The total of medical and rehabilitation expenses related to your injuries,
- Past and future income you may have lost due to your injury,
- Any life-changing disabilities that were caused by your injuries,
- Any losses that are related to property damages,
- Any pain and suffering you may have experienced from your injuries,
Our personal injury lawyers will also need to determine the probability that you will be able to recover damages for your injury case. These factors include the strength of evidence that another individual was responsible for your injuries, documentation of your medical expenses and other losses, and our lawyer's ability to negotiate with the insurance company. After thoroughly reviewing the factors above, we will be able to offer you a reasonable estimate of how much money you may be able to recover.

Steps To Take After The Injury
What actions you take after an injury can often be more critical than the injury itself. If you don't have proper documentation and don't alert the appropriate authorities, your claim and injuries can be challenged.
The more evidence you have, the stronger the validity of your personal injury claim. You need to take a few essential steps immediately if you or your loved ones suffer an injury in California.
- Take pictures. Nowadays, nearly everyone has a phone to take photos and film short videos. Take as many pictures of your injury and the surroundings as you can. For instance, if it was a slip and fall accident, make sure to photograph the cause of your fall. Another example, if it was a car, bicycle, motorcycle, or pedestrian accident, take pictures of your injury, damage to the vehicles, and the street on which the accident occurred.
- Seek medical attention right away. This would create an official record of your injuries and show that the accident caused the injuries you by accident
- Once your injury was attended to, attentively write down all details while you still remember them.
- Call a personal injury lawyer to review the case for a potential lawsuit.
Taking all the steps mentioned above will play a significant role in your case. It is essential to describe the situation to your personal injury lawyer as detailed as possible.
Furthermore, supporting your story with medical records, witnesses, and pictures will make your ride to a successful outcome a lot faster and easier.
Facing Insurance Company Alone
The insurance industry has conditioned us that they have our best interests at heart. “Nationwide is on your side,” “You're in good hands with Allstate - sounds familiar?
When you need counsel on a significant, life-impacting decision, you deserve an attorney who will thoroughly examine the facts and provide the best possible solution for your future. Despite these ads, your insurance company is not typically your friend in a personal injury case. Their primary goal is to altogether avoid or minimize the amount of payment for your claim. Every action is motivated by a desire to reduce your financial recovery. Insurance companies will attempt to limit your recovery. They want you to settle your claim quickly because they are often cheaper. At the very early stages of a claim, victims have not had a chance to consult with a personal injury attorney. Most victims do not fully know the extent of their injuries: medical cost and lost time from work.
Remember, the insurance companies have the money to advertise and promote this public image because they are well-run and profitable businesses, where premiums are paid and payouts on claims are minimized. They have teams of skilled, experienced, and aggressive adjusters whose sole purpose is to get you to agree to accept the lowest amount possible for your injuries. Do not face this fight alone.
Insurance companies will not provide you with the best settlement without solid advocacy on your behalf. Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys will protect your rights, collect evidence, and fight for maximum recovery. We file lawsuits when we conclude the insurance company is not reasonable or failing to provide fair compensation. We enjoy a strong reputation in court and find that the best settlement is often offered before a jury is empaneled in court.
We Will Fight Insurance Companies
Yes, insurance is designed to protect you in case of any accidents, but they are a for-profit business to satisfy their shareholders. There is a bureaucratic system they have established to avoid paying for claims.

We know how to handle stubborn insurance adjusters to whom you are just another claim number.
