On the road, life can change in the blink of an eye. Despite our best efforts, accidents still happen. Even when we’re doing everything right, drivers around us may be careless or distracted. Pedestrians and cyclists are at risk from larger vehicles. Trucks and other cargo carriers may not be loaded properly, causing dangerous conditions. Commercial drivers may be pushed to exhaustion from deadlines and company pressures. The physics of high-speed highways around Southern California could mean catastrophic injuries in a collision. We will fight for you to get the maximum possible compensation for any injuries you suffer so that you can cover your bills and focus on recovering your health after an accident.
You may be confused about what to do after a car crash. You must first determine who was at fault in the accident then file the proper legal claims. You may have to deal with you or another driver’s insurance company, neither of which are on your side.
We all hope for the best whenever we get into an Uber or Lyft. But with the number of rideshares on the road today, accidents are bound to happen. Whether you’re a passenger inside a rideshare vehicle or a third party caught up in a collision with one, you may wonder how the rideshare companies affect your situation.
Because trucks tend to be so massive in comparison to passenger vehicles, they have a sizable advantage in accidents. Tractor-trailors, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and big rigs usually weigh significantly more than other cars. As a result, truck accidents can be devastating.
The dangers of motorcycles are well documented. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are naturally at a greater risk of injury because they are unprotected on the road. Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and can be difficult for other drivers to see in their blind spots.
Bus drivers may be working long hours or driving tired, especially if there are staff shortages. While local city buses may travel at slower speeds, others can travel just as fast as regular traffic. In the event of a collision, buses have a clear size advantage over passenger cars. Even pedestrians and passengers getting on and off are at risk from poorly driven buses.
Although rare, airplane accidents are often catastrophic and deadly when they happen. To complicate matters, airplane crashes involve complex areas of law and highly technical issues. Whether the accident involves a single-engine jet, private operator, or commercial airliner, you must establish how it happened to determine who was at fault. Between weather patterns, maintenance standards, engineering defects, pilot misconduct, airline policies, and air traffic control, this is no small feat. At Pyramid Legal, we help airplane accident victims and their families get justice, find closure, and recover for the harm they’ve suffered.
Bicycling is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint, get in your physical activity, and avoid a stop-and-go commute in a car. But despite the many projects around Los Angeles to make city roads more friendly to cyclists, bicycle accidents happen all over Southern California. And in a collision between a bicycle and a car, the car usually has the advantage.
Any vehicle traveling over 20 miles per hour can cause catastrophic injury to unprotected pedestrians. Broken or shattered bones, spinal injuries, internal organ injuries, head injuries, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are some of the most common injuries in pedestrian accidents.
Not all dogs are cute and cuddly. Some unfortunately do not receive the proper training they need from their owners. A dog’s jaw is very powerful and a deep bite can cause significant injury, ripping muscle and tendons and even breaking bones. You could face long-term scarring or impairment or become unable to do your job. In the state of California, dog owners are held strictly liable for dog bites, regardless of the dog’s history. The attorneys at Pyramid Legal can help you recover any hospital bills or lost income as a result of your dog bite.
Everyday products can be dangerous if they’re defective in their design, manufacturing, or marketing. We often take the safety of the products around us for granted, but when proper safety and quality protocols are not followed, catastrophic injuries can result. This is especially true for products like prescription drugs, medical devices, everyday home appliances, or safety devices like airbags. When products are defective, innocent people can get hurt. Pyramid Legal helps clients hold companies accountable for injuries caused by their defective products.
Property owners, operators, and management groups have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for tenants, visitors, and even some trespassers. State and federal laws have basic requirements that public properties must meet in order to be safe for the public, such as proper signage, guardrails, and building codes. If a property owner fails to take the steps necessary to keep the premises safe, the Pyramid Legal team can help you hold them responsible for any injuries that resulted from their negligence.
Slip and fall injuries could happen anywhere – the sidewalk, the grocery store, a public park, a movie theater. Some areas are more prone to slips and falls, such as escalators, elevators, swimming pools, or construction sites.
Construction worksites can be extremely dangerous. Although construction workers face risky conditions on the job, electrocutions, falls, fires, and heavy equipment can risk severe injury or death even for people passing by outside. That’s why construction sites must be managed properly in compliance with all relevant rules and regulations. The attorneys at Pyramid Legal can help you establish fault and recover compensation for injuries you’ve suffered on or near a construction site because of someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior.
Catastrophic injuries like traumatic brain injuries (TBI), serious burns, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and amputations have permanent consequences. Victims may need medical treatment or supportive care for the rest of their lives. On top of that, an injury could make them unable to do their jobs. They could lose their income and insurance as hospital bills pile up.
Even if someone causes the death of another, it may not always rise to the level of a crime – for example, traffic accidents where the at-fault driver was neither reckless nor intended to hurt anyone. But whether criminal charges are involved or not, a victim’s family can still get justice in civil court by filing a wrongful death lawsuit or survival action.
Property damage could cost you thousands of dollars or more, whether it’s damage to your car, home, business, or other high-value personal property such as electronics. Even if your property is insured, your insurance company may drag their feet on compensating you for damages. They may try to get you to settle for less than you’re fully owed. At Pyramid Legal, we’ll go to bat against the insurance companies for you so that you get the maximum possible compensation you deserve under your policy. If your property was damaged by someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, we can help you hold that person responsible for the cost.

If you have experienced water damage to your property in Southern California, a water damage attorney can help you recover compensation for your losses. They can assist you in filing an insurance claim, negotiating with insurance companies, and pursuing legal action if necessary to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve.
If you have been a victim of vandalism in Southern California, a vandalism attorney can help you protect your legal rights and seek compensation for your losses. They can assist you in filing a police report, gathering evidence, and pursuing legal action against the responsible parties, including seeking compensation for property damage and any injuries suffered.
Lemon laws exist in the U.S. to protect consumers who buy vehicles that don’t live up to the standards promised under the warranty. A “lemon” is another word for a defective car. California has extremely protective lemon laws for consumers. If your newly purchased car has been in the shop for repairs an unreasonable number of times, if it’s not the same quality as other similar vehicles, or if it has defects that make it unsafe to drive, Pyramid Legal can help you replace the car with a new one from the manufacturer or get a refund for your money.
