Medical malpractice claims are some of the most challenging to pursue and win. They are governed by arcane laws which work against victims, not for them. Heimberg Barr LLP was recently awarded the title of  Elite Trial Lawyers by The National Law Journal, effectively naming us the best medical malpractice firm in the nation. We earned this distinction because we secure some of the largest verdicts and settlements in California for our clients. Dr. Steven Heimberg knows what it takes to win.

Everything we do as medical malpractice lawyers informs how we practice catastrophic injury law. Dr. Heimberg understands, easily and immediately, all of the medical jargon and posturing that the wrongdoers often hide behind. Senior Partner Steven Heimberg put decades of experience taking complex injury cases to trial to work for clients. This experience, along with their ability to accurately assess the severity of an injury and the costs for caring for the catastrophically injured, is why they are routinely honored as being among the best trial attorneys in the state and in the country.


Birth injuries change family’s futures forever. They can require lifetime medical care and expenses you’ve probably never had to think about before. As a doctor and a trial lawyer, Dr. Heimberg’s medical knowledge makes him your best ally when coping with your child’s life altering birth injury, and the firm is able to defeat the vast resources that the companies (and insurance companies) bring to prevent those in your situation from getting what they deserve.

Experience matters when you are living with a catastrophic injury

Sometimes accidents can cause injuries that change your life forever. Victims face not only immediate physical, mental, and emotional hardship and pain; they may also face years, or even a lifetime, of crippling medical bills, lost employment, and other extreme financial hardships.

The injured person is not the only one whose life will be irreparably altered: entire families must adjust to a “new normal.” In most cases, these families are overwhelmingly underprepared and underfinanced.

Money can never bring back your health or a loved one, but it can help to rebuild your life after a catastrophic accident or life-altering injury.

As one of the top medical malpractice and personal injury law firms, not only in Los Angeles but throughout California, Heimberg Barr LLP attorneys understand what this means for their clients. Because of the firm’s attorneys’ unique qualifications and experience, they consistently obtain just compensation for their catastrophically injured clients.
