Los Angeles Attorney Skilled in All Personal Injury, Business, and Real Estate Matters

We are not your typical Personal Injury Law Firm, period. When the firm was founded by our President, the objective was justice: no more, no less. That has translated to some of the fiercest opposition that insurance companies have ever seen, which ultimately leads to getting the most compensation possible from each specific case. If you read our founder's Bio Page, you will understand why. With a depth of business experience and uncanny insight into the legal world, our Norwalk personal injury lawyer does what other lawyers should be doing. Every client is given the highest level of transparency and service because the last thing that you need is to have any more problems added to the ones that you currently have. Then let us do what we do best, which is to fight to the last penny for the justice that you deserve.

The Bridgewater Promise

You have our solemn promise that we will give your case the fighting chance that it needs. We promise to work on each and every case until we have the reached the maximum that we possibly can. You have our promise that you will personally get the attention and care that you need. Navigating a Personal Injury case is a foreign land to most people, and it can be both time consuming and daunting. We promise to be the partner that you deserve.

Personal Injury

Serious injuries can be overwhelming and life-changing for a victim. They can cause significant physical pain and limitations that require extensive medical treatment, including hospitalizations, surgeries, and therapy. They can also prevent the injured person from working, either temporarily or permanently, and can cause significant emotional trauma as well. Common examples of serious injuries include paralysis, burns, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal injuries. People who suffer serious injuries should retain our Norwalk personal injury attorney to help them pursue the cost of medical treatment, compensation for lost wages, and damages for the pain and suffering caused by the injuries.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are common throughout the Los Angeles area and are typically caused by the unsafe driving of one or more people. Victims who suffer injuries in a car accident often pursue damages in a civil lawsuit, in which they allege that the defendant driver’s negligence caused the accident. To successfully prove that a defendant should be held accountable for negligence in a car accident case, a plaintiff must show that the defendant had a duty to act with reasonable care, but the defendant breached the duty, thereby causing the accident. While the breach does not need to be the sole cause of the accident, it must be a substantial factor.

Truck Accidents

Trucking companies and the drivers whom they employ are required to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations regarding the safe operation of trucks, as well as any applicable state laws. All too often, however, truck drivers and their employers fail to abide by rules covering driving times, truck inspections, weight limits, and other issues, and truck accidents may occur due to these violations. Accidents caused by commercial trucks typically cause catastrophic injuries and substantial damages, due to the massive size and weight of the truck. If you were injured in a truck accident, the personal injury attorney at our Norwalk firm can help you pursue damages from the truck driver and possibly the trucking company.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists face a high risk of injuries due to the lack of protection provided by motorcycles, and motorcyclists often go unnoticed by other drivers. Motorcycle accidents may be caused by drivers turning left in front of motorcycles without adequate clearance, changing into a lane where a motorcyclist is traveling, or rear-ending a motorcycle. In many cases, a driver who caused a motorcycle accident will argue that the motorcyclist caused the accident in an attempt to avoid liability. Even if a motorcyclist was partially at fault for an accident, however, he or she can still recover damages, which will simply be reduced in proportion to his or her fault.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner. When they breach this duty, it can result in a dangerous condition that presents a risk of harm to people entering the property. For example, if food, liquid, or debris remains on a floor, it can cause a person to suffer a slip and fall accident. If the injured person can show that he or she was injured by a dangerous condition on a property and that the property owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, he or she may be able to recover damages from the property owner in a premises liability claim. Our Norwalk personal injury lawyer understands how to build these complex cases.

Product Liability

Most products are safe and effective. When a product has a defect, though, it may not only render the product ineffective but also make it harmful. Generally, products may be dangerous due to a design defect, or because they were manufactured or marketed improperly. Anyone injured by a dangerously defective product may be able to pursue damages in a product liability lawsuit. To recover damages, the injured person must show that the defendant designed, manufactured, or marketed the product and that the product was defective at the time that it left the defendant's possession. The injured person must also show that he or she suffered harm while using the product in a reasonably foreseeable manner.

Medical Malpractice

People routinely turn to medical providers to treat and prevent a variety of conditions, with the expectation that they will receive competent care. However, many medical providers do not provide adequate treatment, which may result in significant harm to their patients. If you were harmed by a negligent health care professional, the personal injury lawyer at our Norwalk firm can help you seek damages. We would need to establish that the medical provider departed from the appropriate standard of care, and the departure caused your harm. The standard of care is the treatment that a similarly trained professional in the same practice area, with the same experience, would provide in the same situation. Expert testimony is generally needed to establish the standard of care and the manner in which the defendant deviated from the standard.

Business Law

Forming and growing a business is not without risk, and it is prudent for anyone who is considering entering into a business transaction to consult an attorney who is experienced in handling business matters. For example, anyone choosing the form that a business will take should understand the implications of their decision. Additionally, it is critical to assess whether any potential contracts or leases contain the terms necessary to protect a business' interests. Contracts are an essential element of business transactions, and negotiating clear and precise terms can help prevent disputes and litigation in the future.

Client Reviews

You can tell they really care, and that's so important. They were always calling to check in, always wanted me to be comfortable, handled everything for me (even calling me an uber when my car was in the shop), worked very hard from beginning straight to the last minute. Having that kind of firm behind you makes you feel really safe. Great experience, thanks. Sama

Thanks Mr. Zar! You did a great job, I’ll be sure to refer people over to you, there are just too many lawyers out there giving the profession a bad name, glad to have your type around. Gerry
★★★★★
Matt drove all the way to my house, after I called him the night before. Don’t know of any other lawyers that would do that. He helped comfort me, explained everything to me very honestly, and delivered on everything he promised. It’s hard to find someone so dedicated, so I thank the Bridgewater Law Group from the bottom of my heart. Aida
