Chico Auto Injury Attorneys | The Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz

Mr. Puritz began his career representing big insurance companies as a personal injury defense attorney.  He practiced law in this role with his prior law firm, Matthews, Fuqua & Puritz, for the better part of 20 years.  As time went on, Mr. Puritz began to question the stance that insurance companies took when someone who had been legitimately injured and sought to recover damages.  He found that the position big insurance companies applied to nearly all injury claims was adversarial, even when their insured's actions had caused great harm to another party.   

That experience, accompanied by a growing compassion for the injury victims, led Mr. Puritz to a decision to open his own law firm in 1998.  Rather than continuing to defend insurance companies, The Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz was established as a personal injury plaintiff's law firm, one that would advocate for personal injury victims and assist them in recovering the compensation they deserved.

In 1998, Lawrence A. Puritz left Matthews, Fuqua, & Puritz and founded The Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz- a law firm only representing personal injury victims.  The combination of Mr. Puritz's experience and in depth understanding of personal injury litigation, accompanied by the knowledge and experience of other attorneys at the firm, make The Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz uniquely qualified and the best choice in representing your interests for your personal injury case.

The personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Lawrence A.

With a contingency fee agreement, the Chico personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz advance all costs associated with your case (as well as fees) until settlement is reached.  Additionally, because personal injury attorney’s fees are calculated as a percentage of settlement (33% if your case settles out of court and 40% your case goes to trial), if there’s no settlement and you aren't compensated for your injuries- we don't get paid.

Personal Injury

Automobile Accidents

Auto accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of thirty-four. Annually, auto accidents are responsible for over 40,000 deaths. At an average rate of 115 fatalities per day, auto accidents cost a staggering 150 billion dollars yearly. You are likely to be involved in at least one auto accident in your lifetime.

Common auto accident injuries include whiplash, head and brain injury, paralysis, and joint, bone, and muscle injuries. Auto accident victims should seek medical attention as soon as possible if they believe they are injured. Auto accident claims for damages resulting from injuries usually depend on medical records linking the auto accident to the injuries received. The more time elapsed between the auto accident and the treatment, the more difficult it is to prove a connection.

In some cases, auto accidents resulting in personal injury or extensive property loss lead to lawsuits. Damages sought after auto accidents can include cost of medical treatment, loss of property, and loss of wages. If you have been in an auto accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.


Burns

Burns are extremely painful and take a very long time to heal. Most doctors consider severe burns to be the most painful category of injury. Victims with severe injuries from burns often require a series of surgeries and skin grafts to replace tissue damaged by burns. Burns severely affect the victims' quality of life, and can require long-term, costly medical care. Some burns will need dozens of surgeries to conduct skin grafts, prevent joint contractures, and treat infections.

Burns affect millions of Americans every year, often due to occupational hazards, negligence, or product malfunctions. Burns originating in the fault or negligence of another may result in large settlements to offset treatment of burns, replace lost wages, and compensate for decline in quality of life and emotional/psychological damages.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death because of burns originating in the fault or negligence of another, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.


Medical Malpractice & Negligence

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which care provided deviates from accepted standards of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient. The most common malpractice lawsuits stem from dental and medical procedures where the patient has been harmed either emotionally or physically. If the claim is sustained in court, there is usually a monetary settlement to these lawsuits. Many can be settled out of court by dealing with the practitioner's insurance company. The amount settled on will depend on the extent of the damage received by the patient. They will also consider the long-term effects of the error committed.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death as the result of medical malpractice, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

Truck & Big Rig Accidents

pedestrians. Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involve a trucking accident. Most of the deaths and injuries involve the passengers of vehicles; truck drivers usually escape trucking accidents with little or no personal injury. If a trucking accident does occur, record as much information as possible, including names and contact information of witnesses.

Trucking accidents usually involve extensive property and personal damages. Lawsuits may recover losses due to trucking accidents and consulting an attorney familiar with the specific laws and insurance regulations governing trucking accident settlements can help you determine your best legal course of action.

If you have been involved in a trucking accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.


Dog Bites

When dog bites occur, they can potentially result in serious injuries, including disfigurement and death. Sadly, dog bites occur on a relatively frequent basis. Each year in the United States, approximately 4.7 million people suffer dog bites with approximately 800,000 of those requiring medical care. Even worse, most dog bites are sustained by children. Fortunately, those who have suffered significant injury or harm as a result of a dog bite have legal rights. Dog owners, landlords, care centers, and former dog owners can all be held accountable for dog bite injuries.

If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.


Wrongful Death

A death resulting from misconduct on the part of another person or a company is considered a "wrongful death". The misconduct by the responsible party can range from negligence or carelessness to an intentional criminal act resulting in a wrongful death. There are several wrongful death situations, including work-related accidents, medical mistakes or malpractice, automobile and plane accidents, and sports related accidents. A wrongful death may also occur due to the unsafe nature of the premises on which the incident occurs.

The loss of a loved one is always devastating, and the trauma surrounding a wrongful death can be especially difficult to deal with. However, if a loved one has died as the result of another's wrongdoing or negligence, filing a wrongful death suit may help to bring some sense of resolution to the loss of life. In addition, a party found liable for a wrongful death will be held accountable, minimizing the chances that another person will suffer or die due to the same circumstances.

If you believe that the death of a loved one resulted from the negligence of another party, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents comprise a considerable number of accident-related fatalities each year, approximately eight percent, even though motorcyclists represent a minority of drivers (a mere two percent) on the road. Because motorcycles lack the weight and bulk of automobiles, as well as certain safety features like a roof, airbags, and seatbelts, motorcyclists suffer from a higher rate of injury and fatality in accidents.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death in a motorcycle accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.


Pedestrian & Bicycle Injuries

Pedestrian and cycling accidents are very common, and often result in significant injury. Pedestrians and cyclists have very little protection and are very vulnerable when a collision with a motor vehicle occurs. Many pedestrian/bicycle vs. motor vehicle accidents result in significant injury or death, and many times the fault is not with the injured party. If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your losses and suffering.

Unsafe Property, Slip & Fall Injuries

Studies show that 60 percent of all falls are related to a slipping or tripping incident, with such likely causes as a foreign object on the walking surface, a design flaw in the walking surface, a slippery surface caused by weather or a spill, or a person's impaired physical or mental condition. If the latter is the case, or if the injured party in the slip and fall incident should have been aware of the dangerous surface and avoided it, the fault lies solely on the victim.

In other cases, however, liability can be questioned. For a slip and fall victim to win such cases, it must be proven that the owner of the premises either caused the damage to the walking surface, knew of the dangerous spot and did nothing about it, or should have known about the dangerous surface because it should have been discovered, reported or repaired by a so-called "reasonable" person taking care of the property.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death as a result of a slip & fall or unsafe property, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your losses and suffering. The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.


Boating Accidents

In general, inattentive or inexperienced operators, careless or reckless operation and excessive speed are the leading causes of all boating accidents. Additionally, approximately 80 percent of all boating accident fatalities occurred on vessels where the operator had not received boating safety instruction; alcohol was involved in 39 percent of all fatal boating accidents. Boat operators are responsible for the safety of their passengers and must take proper precautions to ensure boating accidents do not occur.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a boating accident and have sustained injury, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz can help. Our accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have and determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
