What Kinds of Newport Beach Injury Cases do We Take?
In our 40 years of representing clients in Newport Beach, we have handled and won a huge variety of different cases.
Newport Beach is a tourist hotspot, known for its beautiful beaches, as well as its stunning waterfront views and activities. But with these come plenty of potential hazards and injury causes, including busy roads and a lot of pedestrian foot traffic.
These are some of the most common cases taken on by our Newport Beach personal injury lawyers:
Road and Traffic Accidents
Car accidents are a particular danger in Newport. PCH is always busy, and the peninsula is packed with cars when the sun is out. Motorcycle accidents also offer a major risk of injury, as do bus and truck accidents in Newport Beach. Bisnar Chase also handles road crashes which are classed as DUI or hit-and-run accidents.
Bike and Pedestrian Accidents
Those who live in Newport Beach often try to avoid the traffic and enjoy the sunny weather by cycling. However, Newport is one of the worst areas in Southern California – and even state-wide – when it comes to bike accident statistics. It can also be a dangerous area for pedestrian accidents, with many people crossing busy roads to get to the beach.
You are likely to see a dog being walked by its owner every time you go out into Newport Beach. But dog bite attacks are also common in the area. A dog might attack if it is angry or scared. In most cases, a dog's owner will be liable if it bites someone or causes injury.
Premises Liability Cases and Workplace Injury
Property owners and managers are responsible for making sure a location is safe. If you are injured on someone else's property due to their negligence, you may be able to take legal action. An example might be a slip-and-fall accident inside a Newport Beach shop.
In cases where a person has suffered a catastrophic injury, such as a spinal cord injury, a brain injury, paralysis, or even wrongful death, a personal injury lawyer should be contacted. These are major injuries with life-altering consequences, but a personal injury attorney in Newport Beach can help victims seek compensation.

What Compensation Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Win for You?
The level of compensation that a client might receive will always vary depending on their case. These are some of the key factors which can contribute to a compensation decision:
- Type and severity of the injury
- Medical bills and expenses of the victim
- Levels of pain and suffering
- Costs of ongoing care and equipment in catastrophic injury cases
- Property damage
- Loss of income and ability to earn a living
