- Auto Accident
Highways 1 and 17 and the other Santa Cruz County roads are swarming with tens of thousands of vehicles every day, often operated by drivers who are carelessly driving too fast and/or tailgating, or they are impaired by alcohol or drugs or they are distracted by their mobile devices. The unfortunate result is that a great number of innocent victims in the Central Coast area end up getting injured in accidents, often to a severe extent.
Car and truck accidents, as well as bicycle and motorcycle accidents, can cause anything from minor to serious to fatal injuries. Some people are lucky to sustain only short term soft-tissue injuries, but others who are not so lucky will, unfortunately, have to suffer a lifetime of pain and disability because of someone else’s stupidity or negligence. An aggressive and experienced lawyer such as Christopher Landis can help you obtain fair (and hopefully generous) compensation for whatever level of injuries you sustained.
- Accidents Involving Children
- Motorcycle & Bicycle Accidents
Accidents involving a collision between a motorcycle or a bicycle and a much larger and heavier four wheel motor vehicle frequently result in the motorcycle or bicycle rider being hurled through the air, then making an extremely hard landing on the asphalt roadway. This, unfortunately, can be a recipe for severe fractures or disabling soft-tissue injuries, often involving multiple parts of the body. If you were the victim of such an accident you should contact Landis Law Firm for an appointment right away.
- Wrongful Death
If a loved one was was killed as a result of someone’s negligence, it is extremely important to have an experienced personal injury attorney assist you on your claim.
- Pedestrian Accident
When a pedestrian gets hit by a vehicle the victim can unfortunately sustain extremely serious or even life-threatening injuries, either as a result of the vehicle striking the person’s body directly, or as a result of the person being hurled through the air and then experiencing a hard landing upon the roadway. If you, or a loved one, was the victim of such an accident you should contact Landis Law Firm for an appointment right away.
- Catastrophic Injuries
When it comes to catastrophic injuries and wrongful death, clients definitely need an attorney who knows how to research and prove complex medical conditions. Attorney Christopher Landis has the essential experience and background to handle these difficult catastrophic injury cases.
- Slip & Fall / Trip & Fall Accidents
Slip (or Trip) and Fall accidents can cause very serious injuries to numerous parts of the body including the head, shoulders, wrists, hips, knees, legs and ankles. If you or your loved one fell because of a slippery foreign substance that should not have been on the floor, or else tripped on an unexpected object or sidewalk defect, contact Landis Law Firm for an appointment right away.
- Dog Bite Attacks
Dog bite accidents can be very painful, especially if rabies shots had to be administered or if it resulted in an infection, and the victim is certainly entitled to be fully compensated for all the pain that was experienced. However, most often the most serious consequences of being bitten by a dog are the emotional trauma and the terrible scars which will, unfortunately, be permanent in nature. Permanent disfigurement, particularly if the dog bit the victim in a conspicuous place such as the face requires much more substantial compensation than compensation for the physical pain. From the legal point of view you are greatly benefited by the fact that you have a strict liability claim pursuant to Civil Code Section 3342, but it is still necessary to ascertain the identity of the dog’s owner and verify that the owner has assets or homeowners insurance. If you or a loved one was the victim of such an accident, contact Landis Accident Injury Law Firm for an appointment right away.
- Premises Liability
A dog bite can lead to terrible disfigurement or severe psychological trauma and sometimes to a truly horrific condition consisting of permanent excruciating nerve pain, known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). A bad slip or trip and fall accident – especially one that involves stairs or falls from heights – can mean a long, painful recovery, escalating medical bills and loss of employment income. Unfortunately, these accidents often result in permanent pain and disability. The Landis Accident Injury Lawyer will work hard to obtain fair (and hopefully generous) compensation for all of the damages you sustained in your accident.
- Assault & Battery/Road Rage Incident
Road rage incidents can lead to severe injuries but getting compensation for them can be very challenging because California law prevents insurance companies from providing liability coverage in situations where the defendant’s misconduct was intentional in nature. In such cases it is normally necessary to go after the defendant’s personal assets. If you were the victim of such an accident you should contact Landis Law Firm for an appointment right away.
