McGee, Lerer & Associates is a seasoned
personal injury firm serving clients throughout Orange County, including residents of
the many local well-known retirement communities. Orange County is home to
Leisure World® in Seal Beach and
Laguna Woods Village in Laguna Woods. These two communities are some of the most coveted for
individuals who are looking forward to active retirement, or who are already
retired and are looking for a welcoming, supportive, and active community
in which to live.
Over the years, our lawyers have represented many residents of these retirement
communities who have been injured in accidents. Our clients have been
pedestrians, bicyclists are motorists who have been struck by
elderly drivers in Laguna Woods Village or Leisure World. Our clients have also been seniors who reside in these retirement communities.
We know that older individuals are
more susceptible to injury, are
more vulnerable to illness or infection, and are
slower to heal/recover from injuries.
Injuries to elderly accident victims are usually far more serious than they would be for a younger individual.
If you or someone you know has been injured at Leisure World or Laguna
Woods Village because of someone else's negligence, a
Long Beach personal injury attorney from McGee, Lerer & Associates can fight for fair compensation.
Insurance Adjusters Undervalue Elderly Accident Victims’ Claims
At McGee, Lerer & Associates, we have experience representing elderly
accident victims. We know the at-fault party's insurance company will
attempt to diminish the value of the claim by focusing on the accident
victim's advanced age and the few remaining years they have left.
The insurance company will take the position that "Why should we
pay a large amount of money when the victim won't be around long enough
to benefit from the money?" The insurance company will attempt to
weasel out of their insured's financial responsibility by arguing
that injury to an elderly person is not worth as much as an injury to
a younger person.
We take the opposite approach. We take the position that because of our
client's reduced life expectancy, those remaining years are even more
precious. Our elderly clients have worked hard during their lifetime so
that they can enjoy their golden years. When a senior's health has
been compromised due to the negligence of another, then the wrongdoer
must pay for the harm he or she has caused. If the defendant's negligence
has taken away our client's quality of life, we will hold them financially
We will bring in medical experts to explain how an elderly accident victim's
brain is less able to compensate after a traumatic injury. Our expert
will explain that whereas a low impact accident may have caused only minor
injuries to a younger person, to a more vulnerable senior, the injuries
