Personal Injury/Wrongful Death


Sustaining a serious injury or losing a loved one arising from someone’s negligence is life altering. From the legal standpoint, a negligence claim seeks to monetarily compensate the victim or his/her family for the injuries sustained, including medical bills, lost income, and the pain, disfigurement, and impact on the quality of life.

The Law Office of Ara Jabagchourian has extensive experience litigating and trying cases in the field of personal injury and wrongful death. Case experience includes automobile accidents, bicycle accidents, dog bites, trucking collisions, police misconduct, premise liability, balcony collapse, pedestrian accidents, railroad incidents, utility gas explosions, wrongful death and negligent road design matters.

The firm’s attorneys have worked with numerous physicians and specialists that assist in developing plaintiffs’ cases. These include orthopedists, spinal surgeons, neurologists, life care planners, economists, accident reconstructionists, biomechanical engineers, metallurgists, and other specialists. In many instances, these experts and consultants are required to explain injuries and causes of accidents.

Injuries can vary widely, from soft tissue injuries to more serious injuries such as burns, amputations, paralysis and traumatic brain injury. The attorneys of the firm have handled all these types of catastrophic injuries with great success. The goal of the firm is to have their clients compensated in full and allow them to move on with their lives.
