Palm Springs Brain Injury Attorney
Brain injuries can be especially tricky to diagnose, and in some cases symptoms may not manifest until years have passed. This is unfortunate because brain injuries are among the most serious type that a person can suffer. A traumatic brain injury can result from a car accident, when the head hits the steering wheel, window or other object with force.
Because the brain is the most delicate part of the body and takes a long time to heal, even a slight blow can cause serious, long-term injury. Often doctors fail to diagnose traumatic brain injuries because patients don’t know that they should report short-term memory loss or personality changes.
If you hit your head in an automobile or other type of accident, even if it was long ago, please see a physician immediately.
After you see a doctor, contact the brain-injury attorneys at Krasney Law so we can assess whether you have a lawsuit if you were injured because of someone else’s negligence. You may be eligible to collect damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Call the Krasney Law team today for a free consultation at (909) 380-7200.

Palm Springs Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Sometimes, pedestrians are helpless when cars hit them because they may not see the car coming or have time to move out of the way. And usually when an accident involves a pedestrian and a vehicle, the pedestrian is the one who suffers injuries, no matter who caused the accident.
If you were injured by a car while walking, you can take some of your power back by initiating a lawsuit to seek compensation for your pain and expenses. Krasney Law firm’s expert attorneys would like a chance to talk to you.
Pedestrian accidents can result in severe injuries to almost any part of the body, including the head, spine, back, neck, limbs, bones and muscles. Because the pedestrian’s body is totally unprotected when a car strikes, an accident can result in permanent disability or even death.

If you or a family member has been in a pedestrian vs. vehicle accident in the Palm Springs area, please call the Krasney Law team for your free consultation. We will assess whether your case warrants a lawsuit or other legal action. The phone number is (909) 380-7200.
Palm Springs Slip and Fall Attorney
Slip and fall cases can be very difficult to prove. The reason for this is that courts have ruled it’s not possible for businesses to prevent every slip and fall, so in some cases courts don’t hold them responsible.
If you want to sue a business for a slip and fall accident, you have to prove that the company has failed to meet a legal duty of care to the person injured.
Businesses and other organizations can be sued for slips, falls and collisions because of poor hiring, supervision, or training of employees.
Businesses are required to give minimal care to the person injured in a slip and fall or they may be held liable to pay compensation. You can claim damages for injuries you suffer if the company fails to deliver these basic duties, but you have to prove it before the court. The slip and fall lawyers at Krasney Law firm are experts at proving such cases. For a complimentary consultation, call Krasney Law today at (909) 380-7200.
