Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Injury Victims Throughout Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties
Oscar Ischiu dreamt of being a lawyer for years before he finally turned thoughts into action, put aside his trucking company business, and worked his way through law school, graduating as class Valedictorian. When a close relative of his was injured in an accident and had a further bad experience with the attorney she hired to handle her personal injury case, Oscar resolved to be the kind of lawyer who makes a positive difference in people’s lives by working hard to solve their legal problems while paying attention to his clients’ needs and concerns. A personal injury lawyer should do more than just settle your insurance claim for you. He should make sure you are getting the medical care you need and be there for you when you have questions about your case, medical bills, and the thousand little things that crop up when your life is upended in an accident caused by another party’s negligence. This is what you can expect from The Law Firm of Oscar A. Ischiu, Esq. – compassion, caring, and a commitment to results.
Comprehensive Southern California Personal Injury Law Firm
You can count on The Law Firm of Oscar A. Ischiu, Esq. whenever you have been injured by another’s negligence in any situation. Below are just some of the types of accidents our office handles. Call us after any injury in Los Angeles or San Bernardino County, including:
Trucking Accidents – Oscar Ischiu started and ran his own trucking company for several years before entering law school. He knows trucking company liability issues from the owner’s perspective, a valuable point of view not shared by almost any other personal injury attorney. We’ll know when the trucking company and their insurer are shooting straight and when they aren’t, and we’ll make sure you are dealt with fairly.
Car Accidents – Car accident injuries and fatalities started going down in 1970 and kept going down every year, but in 2010 they started going up again and have been rising annually, even during the pandemic. The Law Firm of Oscar A. Ischiu, Esq. can help ensure you get the medical care and compensation you need to deal with a serious injury, property damage, and the disruption to your life another’s dangerous, drunk or distracted driving has inflicted on you.
Premises Liability – Property owners owe a duty to others to make sure their premises are reasonably safe. Whether a hazard is created by the owner or a customer, it has to be cleaned up or repaired promptly, or a warning should be provided until the situation can be addressed. Our firm helps slip and fall and trip and fall victims injured in Los Angeles area shopping malls, supermarkets, restaurants, department stores and other public property.
Negligent Security – Part of the duty to keep the premises safe includes providing adequate security for the safety of guests. Lack of adequate lighting, working locks, security gates, alarms, cameras or other features can invite robberies and assaults that otherwise wouldn’t happen. We hold property owners and managers of office buildings, apartment complexes, parking garages and other spaces accountable when they are liable for attacks that occur on their premises.
Dog Bites – Whenever a dog bites a person, whether on public property or the owner’s private property where the victim was lawfully present, California law holds the dog owner strictly liable for the injury that results. It doesn’t matter whether the owner had any prior suspicions that the dog might be dangerous or bite. The owner might still try to say the victim provoked the attack or assumed the risk of getting bit, which is why you need a zealous attorney on your side who knows your rights and looks out for you.
Products Liability – Consumers have no way of knowing if the product they purchase is dangerously defective for some reason. The responsibility for consumer safety lies solely with the manufacturer to make sure any products they put on the market are safe for their intended use or any reasonably foreseeable use. We hold product makers strictly liable for injuries caused by design, manufacturing and marketing defects in the full range of consumer products, from children’s toys, clothing and furniture to automobiles and more.
Recovering the Full Amount of Compensation for California Personal Injury Victims
In a personal injury case, we work to get our clients a full and fair settlement or judgment of their claim, including compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost or diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, and all the other legal damages recognized under California personal injury law. We put in the time and effort required to build a strong case that proves the other party’s negligence and the extent of the harm done to you, so when the time comes to negotiate a settlement, we are prepared to negotiate from a position of strength or go to court if necessary to get you a fair result.
Legal help is needed to get the best result when going up against the insurance company representing the other party; they have insurance adjusters and lawyers whose job is to avoid liability wherever possible and pay as little as they can get away with when liability can’t be avoided. Common insurance company tricks and tactics include:
Disputing your injury – They will require medical exams with their own doctors or hire private investigators to follow you around, gathering “evidence” they claim shows you aren’t hurt as bad as you say you were. We’ll gather the evidence that proves your injury and build a strong case for recovery.
Disputing liability – Insurance companies will say your own negligence was responsible for the accident. Even if they can’t put all the blame on you, every percent of fault they can put on you is a proportionate reduction in what they have to pay. We stick with the facts and the law and don’t let you get saddled with fault for an accident you didn’t cause.
