Committed to Recovering Fair Compensation
Unlike many accident lawyers serving the Antelope Valley, we are not located in Los Angeles or elsewhere in Southern California. Our offices are right here in the Antelope Valley, and we are proud to be a part of the local community. It is our mission to help our clients recover the financial compensation they require to pay for – among other damages – the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost work wages and future earnings
- Emotional injuries, including pain and suffering

If you file a claim against an individual, his / her insurance company is probably aware of the judgment. If the insurance is unaware of the settlement, you can notify the insurer. At this point, the insurance provider should issue a check for the settlement.
If the responsible party does not have insurance, you may need to enter the settlement with the court. The court has the authority to enforce the judgment if the responsible party refuses to pay.
There is no minimum amount of money allowed for a personal injury settlement; every case is determined by the unique facts surrounding the claim. Additionally, most jurisdictions do not have a cap on the amount of my money that you can receive through a personal injury settlement.
In California, the amount of money that you can receive for noneconomic damages (pain, suffering, etc.) for a medical malpractice case is limited to $250,000; however, other injury settlements are not subject to this restriction.
Generally speaking, parents are not allowed to access any money given to their child for a personal injury settlement. This is because some parents may take the money for their own benefit instead of the child.
Your child's money will probably be placed in a blocked bank account that only he / she can access at the age of 18. The court may allow you to access the money sooner, but only if it is needed for the child's well-being or health.
