California Medical Malpractice and Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

  • We Represent Seriously Injured People of all Ages including Young Children

    For several decades, the attorneys at Michels & Lew have represented a wide range of clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries. Our attorneys have the resources, experience, and legal skills to benefit clients of all ages but we are especially experienced with cases involving young children: birth injury and other injuries to children are areas of the law in which we are particularly skilled. Our vast resources and expertise have resulted in success in over 95% of our cases. We also have

    • Over 30 years of experience in California medical malpractice law
    • Experience handling over 1, 000 birth trauma cases
    • An in-house medical doctor to determine specific medical issues involved in your case
    • Access to leading pediatricians, neurologists, specialists, and other experts who will meticulously study the clinical details of your circumstance
    • An approach to the law that is personal and supportive of each and every client
    • A policy of accepting cases on a contingent fee basis: if we are not successful in your case, we will not collect attorneys’ fees or cost
    • A history of success: we have recovered over 1 billion dollars for our clients in settlements and verdicts

    If you and your family have experienced a catastrophic injury, call 800-639-1400 for a free consultation or contact us online for a free case evaluation. You deserve justice and compensation for the pain you have suffered and medical costs you may incur. You deserve the highest level of medical care available. Such well-deserved care can be costly; we will seek maximum compensation for such costs.

    All accidents and unfortunate incidents have the potential to lead to catastrophic injury. But medical malpractice may have the greatest potential. Long-term hospitalization, extended care, and round-the-clock medical attention may be necessary for a victim of medical malpractice. Quality of life may be significantly reduced as the result of injuries. To obtain fair compensation for our clients, we use professional life-care planners to project the costs for appropriate medical care. Wheelchairs, customized vans, alterations to the home, and round-the-clock nursing care costs may be immense. You need maximum compensation for these costs. We know how to vigorously fight for such compensation.

  • Catastrophic Injury Lawyers for People from all Walks of Life

    We started our firm because we believe that all people deserve quality legal representation no matter what their financial or personal situation may be. This belief has only grown stronger over the years as we have provided legal help to children and adults from all walks of life.

    With a history of success in nearly every facet of catastrophic injury law including, but not limited to, medical malpractice, we represent clients who have been victims of sexual abuse, who have been seriously injured in accidents, or who have suffered serious injury for any reason. If you or a family member has been injured by someone else’s irresponsible, reckless or negligent behavior, we will relentlessly pursue justice for you.

  • We are Advocates for Children in all Areas of California

    Though we are based in Los Angeles, we represent clients throughout California. Our clients include infants, young adults, and senior citizens. Though we represent people of all ages, we have always had a strong focus on protecting children. Children need particularly skilled and experienced attorneys to represent them when suffering as a result of school injuries, injuries from near-drowning accidents, birth trauma from medical malpractice, or other serious personal injuries. This area of the law requires a refined focus; Michels & Lew has it.

    We not only seek justice and compensation for our individual clients, we also seek to make all children safe; those responsible for a child’s injuries must be held accountable so that no other child will suffer the same type of injury. Call 800-639-1400 for a free consultation with Los Angeles lawyers who are advocates for children in all areas of California.
