Top Rated Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers
Our Highly Skilled Personal Injury Attorneys Are Here To Help.
If you are a resident of the lovely coastal city of Long Beach, California, most people would consider you lucky because of the pleasant climate, waterfront attractions, and delightful combination of urban convenience and small-town warmth of your location. Lucky, that is, unless you have been the victim of a serious traffic accident. If you have suffered a significant injury due to the negligence of another person, the law allows you to be compensated for your losses. In order to come away with a just resolution, however, you need a team of competent, compassionate personal injury attorneys like those at Compass Law Group, LLP.
Our practice has a well-earned reputation, not only throughout California, but nationally as well. As a matter of fact, our practice has a 10.0 (superb) rating from Avvo and we are listed among The National Top 100 Trial Lawyers. Beyond that, we have won millions of dollars for our clients, both in and out of the courtroom. We have several offices in Southern California with one right here in Long Beach.
Serious Injuries Are Life-Changing
While a compound fracture may alter your routine for a year or more, a catastrophic injury will affect you permanently. In a worst-case scenario you may need round-the-clock care. Whether you have suffered a skull fracture, burn, spinal cord injury, amputation, loss of sight, hearing, or mobility, or are dealing with a traumatic brain injury (TMI), our dedicated accident attorneys are here to help.

We Will Fight Tooth And Nail To Win You The Damages You Deserve
At Compass Law Group, we are well-aware that you have been injured emotionally and financially as well as physically.

Depending on the particulars of your case, we will fight for every dollar you’re entitled to for:
In addition to the economic and non-economic damages listed above, if the court deems the conduct of the person who caused the accident egregious, illegal, or intentional, you may also be awarded punitive damages. Our attorneys firmly believe that justice demands not only that you receive the substantial compensation you are entitled to, but that the party responsible for your misery be held accountable.

What happens if you are partially to blame for the accident?
People worry that if they bear some measure of responsibility for the accident in which they were injured they won’t be able to receive the compensation they need. Fortunately, this is not true. Though you should be aware that laws on comparative fault (also known as comparative negligence) vary from one state to another, in California we abide by the principle of “pure comparative fault.”
Comparative fault means that the law recognizes that many accidents are the fault of two or more parties and therefore allows the court to assign percentages of blame to all parties. Therefore, in an accident in which you are awarded $100,000 in damages, if you’ve been assigned 10 percent of the blame, you will actually only receive $90,000. What “pure” comparative fault means in this context is that even if you are found to be more than 50 percent at fault for the accident, you are still entitled to the portion of damages assigned to the other party.
