Personal Injury

Personal Injury

The partners of Stoner Grannis LLP have a long track record of obtaining successful results for their personal injury clients. We have handled a broad range of cases involving product liability claims, construction and industrial accidents, motor vehicle and trucking accidents, premises liability claims, professional negligence (medical, legal and architectural) claims, accounting, cases of elder abuse, wrongful deaths, dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices, and other catastrophic injury cases.

Product Liability

Dangerous products are a major problem in our country. Tens of thousands of people are injured or killed every year in product-related incidents. By law, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of defective products are strictly liable for injuries caused by the products they manufacture and sell. If you believe you have suffered injury from a defective product, the attorneys of Stoner Grannis LLP may be able to help. Our attorneys are experts in handling product liability cases, having litigated hundreds of product liability cases in state and federal courts across the nation, including cases involving heavy industrial and construction equipment, motor vehicles, off-road vehicles, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one causes unimaginable suffering and can ruin a family financially. If death is caused by someone else’s wrongful act or omission or by a dangerous product, drug, or medical device, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. While no amount of money can replace your loved one, filing a wrongful death lawsuit can provide justice, closure, and financial compensation to help provide for your and your family’s future. If you wish to discuss your legal rights please call Stoner Grannis LLP for a free consultation.

Industrial Accidents

If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitles to compensation above and beyond the limited benefits available through workers’ compensation.  Industrial injuries are sadly all too common, particularly for workers in dangerous professions such as construction tradesmen, electrical linesmen, steel workers, trash collectors, landfill workers, rail yard workers, commercial pilots, and flight engineers.  When a workplace injury is caused by the negligence of a third-party (other than your employer) or a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation.  If you have been injured on the job, call Stoner Grannis LLP for a free legal consultation to learn your legal rights.

FELA & Railroad Injury Claims

The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) protects and compensates railroad workers injured as a result of the railroad’s negligence. If you are a railroad worker who has been injured on the job, the attorneys at Stoner Grannis LLP can help you obtain compensation.

Medical Malpractice

We all rely on doctors and other health care providers to keep ourselves in good health, and fortunately most health care providers work hard to give the best care possible. Unfortunately, some fall short of the standards set by others, providing substandard care or prescribing procedures or medications that unnecessarily endanger their patients. If you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice, call Stoner Grannis LLP for a free consultation. We may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injuries.

Dangerous Pharmaceuticals & Medical Devices

If you believe what you see on television today, there would seem to be a drug or medical device available to correct every ailment and condition known to man. Unfortunately, many of the drugs and medical devices, which are so aggressively marketed on television, are dangerous. They produce massive profits for the companies who manufacture and sell them, but endanger the lives and wellbeing of the patients who use them. The attorneys of Stoner Grannis LLP are experts in prosecuting cases involving dangerous pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

Automobile & Trucking Accidents

Driving is among the leading causes of death and injury in this country every year. While on the road, drivers are exposed to hazards posed by inattentive or distracted drivers, reckless individuals, defective and poorly maintained vehicles, and hazardous road conditions. At Stoner Grannis LLP, our attorneys are experts in handling automotive accidents. They can help identify the individuals, businesses, or governmental agencies responsible for your injuries and develop the evidence necessary to prove your claim and obtain compensation. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, please call Stoner Grannis LLP for a free consultation.

Pasadena Elder Abuse

The aged and disabled are especially vulnerable segments of society. Because of their special vulnerability, California’s legislature has enacted the Elder Abuse and Dependent Care Adult Civil Protection Act (“Elder Abuse Act”), Welfare and Institutions Code §15600 et seq. The Elder Abuse Act provides heightened legal remedies for the protection of persons over the age of 65 and dependent adults who have been the victim of physical or financial abuse or neglect. If you or a member of your family has been the victim or elder abuse, call Stoner Grannis LLP to see if we can help.

Representative Case

Eric Parker v. Crazy Gideon Studios, Inc.: Mr. Stoner represented a plaintiff who suffered a shattered ankle and leg when a ladder on the side of a building being used for a location shooting for a television show had been cut by the building owner to prevent transients from accessing the roof. When the union electrician attempted to descend the ladder, he fell after reaching the gap in the ladder and his leg was broken in numerous places and seriously injured. The plaintiff successfully asserted claims for premises liability, negligence, insurance coverage, and insurance bad faith against the property owner and the television production company involved. The plaintiff obtained a confidential settlement in excess of $5.0 million for the leg and back injuries.
