Personal Injury Law Lawyers In Cabazon California

Cabazon is a census-designated place (CDP) in Riverside County, California, United States. The population was 2,229 at the 2000 census. Cabazon was incorporated as a city in 1955. In 1972, due to years of scandal, political instability, and stalled growth, the citizens of Cabazon voted to disincorporate the city. Cabazon thus became the first and, so far, only community to give up cityhood in Riverside County, or, for that matter, in California.. Attempts to incorporate the area are in progress, in order to re-instill civic pride. Cabazon is the home of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians and their massive Casino Morongo, whose 27-story hotel tower dominates the San Gorgonio Pass. It is one of the largest Native American casinos in the United States. A huge water-bottling facility was established by Arrowhead Mountain Springwater (in partnership with the Morongo Band of Mission Indians) on the eastern edge on Cabazon in 2003. Claude Bell's dinosaurs are icons of roadside America: some people may remember them from Pee-wee's Big Adventure, while others have grown up with them along the highway in southern California. The dinosaurs were purchased in 2005 from the Bell family for $1.2 million USD by Christian developers. Cabazon is a major stop for outlet shopping, home to the well known Cabazon Outlets, an outlet center.. Cabazon is part of the Banning Library District. The Cabazon branch is located at 50171 Ramona Avenue. The library was established in 1958, a new library building is currently in progress. In late October 2006, a major arson fire started near Cabazon. During the course of five days, the Esperanza Fire burned over 40,000 acres (160 kmĀ²) and resulted in the deaths of five firefighters.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury includes injuries to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. If the negligence of another person can be proved, the person who is injured may be entitled to monetary compensation from that person who was negligent. Attorneys often represent clients on a contingency basis, in which the attorneys fee is a percentage of the compensation the plaintiff receives, payable when the case is resolved. Cases involving people who have suffered an injury for which someone else (an individual or business) may be legally liable -- may include injuries caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and emotional distress.
