Our personal injury attorneys not only have outstanding credentials; we have developed winning litigation strategies that give us an edge in any courtroom. Our broad knowledge of state, federal, and local law provides a foundation for strong legal arguments.
Most important, we have, as private individuals, faced the challenges of personal injury, giving us a unique perspective and deep compassion for what you’re going through. Our own experience has made us sensitive to your physical, emotional, and financial plight, so we will charge you no attorneys’ fees until we win you the damages you deserve.
While Compass Law Group offers the efficiency and connectivity of a large law firm — we have several offices throughout California — we maintain the customized service of a boutique practice. We speak Spanish and Farsi fluently, which enables us to create a rapport with a more inclusive community. We pride ourselves on getting to know you and to understand your particular needs.
We are adept at sifting pertinent information from police reports, medical records, and witness accounts, and have access to experts in various fields who may bolster your case by testifying on your behalf. We know how important it is to keep you in the loop, but will only contact you with important developments because we know how essential it is for you to rest and recover from your trauma.

Compass Law Group is dedicated to holding those who harmed you accountable.

We routinely obtain meaningful damages for clients who have suffered severe or catastrophic injuries in:
In addition, our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers handle premises liability cases, such as slip and fall accidents and dog attacks, and construction or sports accidents injuries. We are well-prepared to file lawsuits against people or entities (e.g. corporations or organizations) who have caused you catastrophic injuries like the ones below:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Severe burns
- Loss of eyesight or hearing
- Loss of neuromuscular or digestive function
- Loss of an organ
Compass Law Group’s personal injury attorneys are well-practiced in calculating damages to see you through your present difficulties and to provide for you if you require ongoing care for a permanent disability.
Depending on the particular circumstances of your case, we may be able to win you a settlement or verdict to cover:
- Economic Damages for actual costs, including medical and rehabilitation expenses, property repair or replacement, lost income (present and future), long-term nursing care, replacement services, and alterations to make your home accessible.
- Non-Economic Compensation to cover intangibles, such as: pain and suffering, permanent disfigurement or disability, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life
If the defendant’s behavior was especially egregious or intentional, we may also be to win you punitive damages, intended both to punish the offender and prevent others from imitating his/her heinous misconduct. It should be noted that, if you were injured in a malicious attack, we may be able to file a civil lawsuit against your assailant whether or not the individual was arrested or convicted of a crime.
If you have lived through the tragedy of losing a close family member because of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or even malice, our Los Angeles attorneys will fight hard and long to get you some measure of justice. Though we know all too well that no amount of money can compensate you for such a loss, we will work vigorously to provide you with money for final medical expenses, funeral costs, and an amount to represent the magnitude of your lost financial and emotional support.
Though the law recognizes the fact that there may be shared blame for an accident, different states handle the matter in different ways. California is guided by a principle known as “pure comparative negligence,” meaning that your partial fault does not prevent you from being awarded damages. However, the percentage of fault the court assigns to you will be deducted from the total.
So, for example, if the court awards you $1,000,000 in damages, and you are deemed to be 20 percent at fault for the accident, you will receive $800,000, or $1 million minus 20 percent. What the word “pure” means in this context is that even if you are more than 50 percent responsible for your own injury, you can still receive a settlement at verdict.
You will be pleased by how quickly things begin to fall into place once you contact Compass Law Group. Once you put yourself in our capable hands, life will begin to make sense again and you will experience a renewed sense of calm. You will be able to relax as our talented attorneys take up the fight to win you the damages you are entitled to receive.
