Personal Injury and Family Law Attorney Serving Los Angeles, CA

Gerald Laderman's practice incorporates all facets of the following legal services in the Los Angeles, CA area with law offices in Santa Monica, CA:

Personal Injury Matters
Every day, people suffer personal injuries in accidents or incidents due to another person’s wrongful conduct. They can be in the form of automobile, truck, bus, motorcycle, or pedestrian accidents, slips and trips due to dangerous conditions on private and governmental property, negligent medical care from doctors and/or hospitals, defective products, dog bites, or assault and battery. Our experienced personal injury attorneys have dealt with all of these types of personal injury matters for 30 years with successful results. We make sure that people are compensated for personal injuries, loss of earnings, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering resulting from these matters. We fully understand that when people are involved in personal injury matters, their lives change, and we help them get through these difficult and stressful times.

Family Law
At the Law Offices of Gerald Laderman, experienced family law attorneys handle divorces, legal separations, uncontested dissolutions, domestic partnership dissolutions, child custody, spousal and child support matters, domestic violence issues, and modification of previous family law orders. Emotions can be difficult during these times, and we provide thorough and caring support at affordable rates for persons who cannot pay the high hourly rates charged by many family law attorneys, especially in these difficult economic times.

Automobile, Truck, Bus, Motorcycle, and Pedestrian Accidents
Each year, there are thousands of accidents in California due to the negligence of persons operating automobiles, trucks, buses, motorcycles, and other forms of transportation. Negligence exists when these persons do not intentionally cause accidents, but when they are careless in the operation of these types of vehicles. Our experienced accident attorneys will help you, whether you are operating your own vehicle, a company vehicle, or are a pedestrian, if you have been injured as a result of negligence by others in the operation of their vehicles. We analyze liability, or fault, and argue your case to the wrongful parties’ insurance companies, and if necessary, in trial if we cannot settle the case with the insurance companies. We assist you in getting your vehicle repaired, oversee that you get the best medical care for your injuries, and help you obtain full compensation for your medical expenses, loss of earnings, and pain and suffering. We have been very successful over the years, both in settlements and in Court, in obtaining the maximum recovery for your injuries and damages.

Slip and Fall Incidents
Frequently, people slip or trip and fall in places due to a dangerous condition existing on the premises, whether it be in a grocery store, an apartment building, or even on a sidewalk. A dangerous condition could be open and obvious, or should have been discovered due to a reasonable inspection. Our experienced premises liability attorneys recognize whether there is a dangerous condition for which someone should be responsible, and will help you pursue your claims for injuries and other damages against the wrongful parties. These are difficult cases to prove, and you need an experienced premises liability attorney to help you prevail.

Civil Litigation
Every day, people are faced with problems, accidents, and/or incidents that need to be pursued through the civil court system. Civil litigation incorporates all these matters, whether they be in the form of written or oral contract disputes, personal injury matters, disagreements with neighbors, problems with persons that are hired to repair vehicles, homes, etc. Our experienced civil litigation attorneys, who have been practicing approximately 30 years in this arena, can help you at affordable rates to resolve these matters through the civil court system.

Medical Malpractice Cases
Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys know that doctors make mistakes; but many people think that doctors are infallible, and they cannot make mistakes. Our medical malpractice attorneys know that there are situations where a physician or a hospital can make errors in their care and treatment of patients. These errors are not poor judgment calls, but rather acts below the standard of care. We will help you to recognize whether you have a case against a physician and/or hospital for negligent medical care, and to recover your medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering, which can sometimes be severe and life-changing. Due to the fact that people think that doctors are infallible, these are hard cases to prove, in order to win your case, having an experienced medical malpractice attorney on your side will help you win your case.

Wrongful Death Cases
When the wrongful act or neglect of another causes the death of a person, then that person’s heirs would have a cause of action for wrongful death. Obviously, these are trying times for the decedent’s loved ones, and our experienced wrongful death attorneys will help you recover your pecuniary losses, such as the support you would have received from the decedent, as well as compensation for the loss of the decedent’s love, companionship, comfort, affection, society, or moral support. We will help you see that justice prevails for the loss of your loved one so that you do not have to carry the burden yourself during your time of grief.

Insurance Bad Faith Cases
Situations occur where your insurance companies, whether they cover your automobile, home, medical care, etc., refuse to pay for claims that you may rightfully file, even though you have paid your premiums timely. Sometimes, insurance companies engage in unreasonable and very questionable tactics in their refusal to pay your claims. Our experienced bad faith attorneys will fight hard against these large companies to make sure that you are compensated for losses that should be paid by the companies, as well as for damages that punish the companies for their unreasonable conduct.

Business Litigation
If you own a business, you are well aware of the fact that there are many pitfalls in the operation of a business due to others with whom the business contracts not performing their duties. Sometimes, disputes arise which cannot be resolved in an amicable manner, and our experienced business litigation attorneys assist you in pursuing your claims through the court system. We are especially open to helping small businesses, as they are the true backbone of our economy, and our business litigation rates are affordable so that the businesses do not spend all their money on legal fees to resolve these disputes.
