All drivers carry a responsibility to be safe on the roads. But nowadays, it is all too common to see other drivers texting, even though using handheld devices while driving has been illegal in California since 2009. Distracted driving can cause accidents with life-changing and even deadly injuries that range from concussions to debilitating spinal cord damage.
The auto accident attorneys at Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., are determined to help get you back on your feet after an accident. These incidents can widely affect your life by keeping you out of work, leaving you with medical bills to pay and making it hard to support your family. But we are here to listen to your story and reduce your worries.
The most common cases we work with clients on include:
With the notorious traffic of Southern California, it is no surprise that car crashes are the most common accidents. There are over 150,000 collisions that cause serious injuries in California each year.
Semitrucks are dangerous to operate and share the road with. A collision with these can cause considerable injuries or even death to occupants in smaller vehicles. Company lawyers representing the truck drivers will try to avoid or underpay liability claims, making these cases challenging.
Motorcyclists are at high risk on the road even if they wear appropriate protection. Other motorists frequently overlook them or do not acknowledge their right of way. Catastrophic and deadly injuries often result from these collisions.
We are also equipped to handle cases involving multiple vehicles, drunk drivers, disputed liability, or negligent drivers without insurance.
Automobile accidents can turn your life upside down. But our skilled team of lawyers is well-versed in all of these instances, as well as other cases and is always prepared to defend you.
The personal injury attorneys at Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., will protect your rights and support you throughout your case. We will seek fair compensation for your injuries, lost wages from missed work days, and help you pay medical expenses to make your life feel whole once again.
We are also ready to confront greedy insurance companies on your behalf. Insurance companies are not concerned about your emotional and financial struggle after such accidents. But we are here to support you at every step. Our team of lawyers will investigate your case with a comprehensive approach. We will take your case to court if need be, to get you the compensation you deserve.
You should not have to suffer because of someone else’s careless driving. Schedule an appointment online with us or call our Sherman Oaks offices at (888) BURGIS1 for a free consultation. For all personal injury cases, we operate on a contingency fee basis. That means you do not pay any attorney fees unless we win your case.

Michael Burgis & Associates really goes the extra mile in fighting for getting their clients the medical attention, benefits and compensation they deserve. Highly recommend this firm for anyone who's suffered a work injury, feels lost and needs an aggressive attorney in their corner.
Matt helped me out with everything! Ask for Matt! He helped make the process go as smooth as it can possible go. He even helped with legal advice outside the case. He responded within minutes. I would recommend Matt and the firm to everyone. Thanks again!
Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases. I first came across his firm through some videos he posted and was impressed by his office staff and his paralegal's understanding of the law as well. Mike's a true advocate for the injured worker.
