Car Accident Attorney

(Catastrophic Injury)
A Car Accident Can Change Your Life.
We Can Help You Rebuild It.
Every year in California, car accidents kill or injure over 150,000 people. While some accidents are unavoidable, far too many crashes are caused by driver negligence, a poorly designed or poorly maintained road, or a defect in a vehicle.
At Reiner, Slaughter, Mainzer & Frankel, we have represented thousands of people and families whose lives have been affected by accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles and pedestrians. While every case is unique, we have the experience and resources to provide aggressive and competent representation.

Our more than 150 years of combined experience as personal injury lawyers gives us the know-how to resolve the legal, medical, and insurance issues that arise after a car accident.  What that means for our clients is that even though it’s likely they have not been through a potentially life-changing crash before—they can take comfort in the fact that we have, and we know how to help them through it.

Catastrophic Car Accident Injuries

For over 40 years we have represented people who have been hurt and the families of people killed in tragic and avoidable circumstances.  We’ve represented people coping with the death of a loved one and people struggling with serious neurological injuries like traumatic brain injury, fibromyalgia and complex regional pain syndrome. We’ve represented people with serious orthopedic injuries like spinal cord injury, nonunions and mal-unions and by trauma induced psychological injuries like depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

We have the experience, resources and skill to represent people who have sustained all types of catastrophic injuries, including:

Back and spine injuries

Back and spine cord injuries are caused by damage to the vertebrae, ligaments or to the discs of the spinal column or by injury to the spinal cord itself.  Depending on the type of injury and the severity of the injury, back injuries can lead to permanent pain and disability.  Roughly 1 in 3 people who experience a spine injury are re-hospitalized one or more times during any given year following the injury.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force causes damage to the brain. While some people who sustain a traumatic brain injury are able to recover, for others, a traumatic brain injury causes permanent changes in a person’s ability to think, work and interact with the world.

Paraplegia or quadriplegia

Quadriplegia and paraplegia are the terms for when someone sustains a paralyzing injury to their limbs—often due to a traumatic injury to the spinal cord.  People with paralyzing injuries like quadriplegia and paraplegia will frequently require extensive, life-long assistance with activities of daily life including, transportation, cooking, eating, cleaning, and hygiene.

  • We present that evidence to the at fault party and attempt to negotiate a fair resolution that takes into consideration all of the ways our client’s life has been impacted.
  • If the at fault party does not accept our demand, we don’t settle for less than what their case is worth.  We use our team of experts and our skill as trial lawyers to prove to a jury exactly what happened and why our client deserves the compensation.

I was in a terrible auto accident, but the attorneys at Reiner, Slaughter, Mainzer & Frankel were very caring and listened to what I had to say. They kept me updated on what I needed to do and what was happening. I always felt they were working their very best for me. They were very successful in my case.
