Why you want Heimberg Barr LLP’s Los Angeles trial attorneys on your side

At Heimberg Barr LLP, our reputation for thorough trial preparation is often enough of a threat to insurance company and other attorneys to offer a meaningful pretrial settlement opportunity. Their task is to reduce their client’s financial exposure, and we use this knowledge to secure financial compensation that at the very least relieves our client of future financial stress.

Medical malpractice claims are complex, and while we aggressively prepare each one for trial, we are continuously exploring ways to reach the most beneficial resolution for our clients. One of our acknowledged strong points is our ability to clearly appraise and communicate the financial price tag your injury will incur over time, including the cost of future medical care and the total income that will be lost because of your inability to work. Issues such as immediate and ongoing medical care, physical and occupational therapy, and job retraining must be monetized, and necessary home renovations must be anticipated and accounted for. Your need for part-time or permanent attendant care in daily life is also assessed.

The overall amount of damages is aggressively contested during settlement negotiations and at trial. Retaining a top medical malpractice law firm in Los Angeles is the best way of ensuring you will get fair and meaningful compensation for your injuries. In cases where the misconduct rises above mere negligence, our attorneys aggressively fight for punitive damages, when allowable or applicable.

There is a special law in California called MICRA that severely infringes upon and restricts the rights of medical malpractice victims. For years, Heimberg Barr LLP has been at the forefront of the battles to limit the unfairness of MICRA’s reach and avoid its application in your case.

Our attorneys are passionate about representing those who have suffered injury because of the negligence of others. We are veterans in combatting the stall-tactics corporations use to mitigate damages, and we fight to ensure your case is not bogged down by red tape, and you can receive the help you need as soon as possible.

If Heimberg Barr LLP cannot negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf, we are more than prepared to take the case to trial. Through years of reputation, the other side knows this and this too aids in trial.  And when we do go to trial on our clients’ behalf, we do so with remarkable success.

As a result, Heimberg Barr LLP has repeatedly been honored as one of the best plaintiffs’ law firms in Los Angeles. Senior partner Steve Heimberg has been recognized as the Los Angeles Trial Lawyer of the Year, an honor for which he has been nominated 9 times in the last 20 years. Senior Partner Steve Heimberg have been selected for National Trial Lawyers Top 100 for 10  straight years respectively. Heimberg Barr was also selected by The National Law Journal as the #1 Medical Malpractice firm in the US.

The combination of personal attention and focus on legal details we provide has made it possible for us to obtain record-setting verdicts and settlements in counties throughout California.
