As Torrance injury lawyers, we know that no one ever plans to be involved in an accident causing personal injury or death. However, in a large metropolitan area like the South Bay of Los Angeles, including Torrance, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Long Beach and the surrounding communities, incidents occur all the time. Whether it be an auto accident, motorcycle or bicycle collision, pedestrian mishap, or other incident, a life can be changed in an instant. It only takes one careless or negligent act to cause an injury that can affect your ability to work and disrupt your daily life activities.
Steven M. Sweat, APC has been serving the greater Los Angeles areas including South Bay communities for over two decades. We have assisted victims of car crashes on Southland freeways like the 110 or 405 or U.S. 1, the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). We know that in beach communities there are a lot of foot traffic, bicycles, motorcycles, joggers and skateboarders. Unfortunately, mishaps occur oftentimes between these individuals and motor vehicle traffic. If this is the result of a driver not following the rules of the road, it can be deemed negligent and the victim or their family may be entitled to recover of medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
In addition, we have also represented victims injured on commercial or residential property due to dangerous conditions caused by carelessness or lack of proper management or maintenance. Unfortunately, the South Bay has a lot of construction going on at any given time and buildings including apartments, condominiums or retail establishments such as the Del Amo mall or other large commercial structures can have conditions which pose a hazard to persons on the property. If the landlord, owner or manager knew or should have known about these conditions and fail to repair or warn about the hazard, they can be held legally responsible for the cost of medical care and the value of the emotional trauma caused by such an incident.
We also represent victims of dog and animal attacks, fire and explosions, nursing home and elder abuse, railroad mishaps, sexual assault and abuse, and any other incident which gives rise to bodily or emotional harm or fatality. We have proudly represented people from all walks of life and from all over the South Bay, from Carson to Redondo Beach or Palos Verdes. We know that negligent or wrongful acts can cause devastating effects on the day to day life of the victims. We know how devastating it can be to suffer injury or endure the death of a loved one but, we strive to achieve maximum results in every case we prosecute and improve the lives of the people and families we represent. We pride ourselves on providing focused and personal representation. While no attorney can or should predict the outcome of any, particular matter based upon prior results, we have a track record of success that includes being named “Personal Injury Super Lawyers” by Thomson Reuters News Service and Los Angeles Magazine and being rated a perfect 10.0 “Superb” by the AVVO Attorney Rating System. Our team of experienced trial lawyers has obtained settlements and verdicts in the millions of dollars and we strive to obtain maximum results on each and every case.
