California Personal Injury Lawyers
When you go to the hospital, you expect your health to improve. You don’t expect to get hurt. But hospitals offer many risks, especially if the physical premises are not properly maintained. You can slip and fall on slippery floors or stairways. You can get hurt on an elevator. You may even get mugged in a dark parking garage or out-of-the-way corridor. When you have suffered apersonal injury at a health care facility, you want an experienced personal injury attorney to help you get full and fair compensation for all your losses.
At Blackman Legal Group, we have been protecting the rights of personal injury victims for more than 33 years, starting our comprehensive personal injury practice in 1977. We offer a broad base of knowledge in personal injury matters, and we meticulously prepare every case we handle, paying close attention to every detail of your case. Because of our knowledge and hard work, we are often able to settle a claim at or above insurance policy limits. We have also obtained verdicts or settlements that exceed $1 million for many clients.

WHEN YOU HAVE SUFFERED PERSONAL INJURY AT A HEALTH CARE FACILITY
Like any other business enterprise, a hospital, clinic or other health care facility has a duty to properly maintain its physical property to prevent injury to visitors. The property owners must either fix any known problems or reasonably notify the public of any dangers.
At Blackman Legal Group, our attorneys represent people who have suffered any type of injury at a medical or health care facility, handling cases involving
- slips and falls. We protect the rights of people who have fallen on wet or slippery floors, whether in bathrooms, patient rooms, examining rooms, operating rooms, cafeterias or other locations.
- broken stairways, elevators or escalators. Our lawyers handle claims involving defective escalators, elevators or stairways, including cases involving gaps in escalators, malfunctioning escalators or elevators, or limbs stuck in an elevator or escalator.
- inadequate security. If you have been injured in an attack in a parking ramp or secluded corridor or wing of a hospital and that attack could have been avoided with appropriate security, we can help you recover full and fair compensation.
- dangers outside the building. We represent people who have been injured because of icy sidewalks or pavement, or any other dangerous conditions outside a health care facility.
We handle all personal injury claims on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.
