Sustaining a serious personal injury is always traumatic, but going through the experience because of someone else’s negligence is especially distressing. If you, or a member of your family, is suffering physical, emotional, and financial pain in the aftermath of an accident caused by another party, you need more than first-rate medical care — you need the assistance of a skilled personal injury attorney to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Compass Law Group is committed to holding those who caused you injury accountable. We know all too well that while your medical and household bills are mounting, your income may have become minimal or non-existent. We fully recognize the desperation you’re feeling and the strain your incapacity is putting on your loved ones. Be assured that we routinely win substantial sums for innocent victims like you who have suffered a severe personal injury, including those arising from:
We also handle slip and fall accidents and other premises liability cases such as dog attacks and swimming pool accidents as well as construction accidents and sports injuries. If you have been through the agony of losing a loved one to wrongful death, though we may not be able to lessen your grief, we will fight hard to bring you a measure of justice.
Whatever your injury, even if it is catastrophic, it is not beyond our realm. We have won numerous clients the significant amounts necessary to cover long-term care for brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and burn injuries. Our approach to your case will be both thorough and precise. We will examine police records and medical data, investigate and photograph the scene of the accident, interview any witnesses, and consult with experts in related fields, such as medical specialists or automotive engineers; if necessary, we will bring such experts into the courtroom to testify on your behalf. You can be sure we will leave no stone unturned when it comes to advocating for your right to fair compensation.
There are several types of damages we may be able to win for you, depending on the particular circumstances of your case. Compensatory damages are divided into economic and non-economic categories:
If your personal injury has resulted from extreme recklessness, for instance involving drug-or alcohol-impaired driving, or if you were harmed intentionally or maliciously, Compass Law Group will also fight vigorously to win you punitive damages — i.e. damages designed to punish the defendant and discourage similarly abhorrent misconduct on the part of others.
Accidents in which more than one party bears responsibility are handled differently from state to state. California works under the principle of “comparative fault” (“shared fault”) following a pure comparative negligence standard. This means that even if you were partly at fault for the accident that injured you, you may still collect damages, but the percentage of your fault, determined by the court, will be deducted from your awarded compensation.
To illustrate: if you are found to be 25 percent at fault in a car accident because you were driving over the speed limit, and you are awarded $100,000 in damages, you will receive only $75,000. In California, even if you bear most of the fault for the accident, you are still entitled to damages from the other party proportionate to that party’s percentage of liability.
Because there are statutes of limitations on filing personal injury lawsuits, and because it is best to gather facts before the accident site is cleaned up or repaired and while witnesses’ memories are still fresh, the sooner you contact our personal injury attorneys the better. Once you become our client, we will dedicate ourselves to seeing that justice is done. Our goal is to see that you obtain the full amount of compensation you need to recover in comfort and restart your life on the very best terms possible.
No matter who the opposing party is, they can’t outwork, outwit or outspend Compass Law Group, PC. We will do everything that is necessary to win the case, and we’re here to help victims fight back against those who injured them.
Hiring the right personal injury attorney can often make the difference between getting the maximum settlement to account for your medical care, damages and lost wages or getting short changed or even having your case dismissed completely.
