Personal Injury Law Lawyers In Earp California

Earp, California is an unincorporated townsite in San Bernardino County in the Sonoran Desert close to the California/Arizona state line at the Colorado River in Parker Valley. It is named for famed western lawman Wyatt Earp who settled in the area with his second wife, Josephine Sarah Marcus. Earp was living in Vidal in 1906 and staked claims for both copper and gold mines near the base of the Whipple Mountains that same year. Earp spent the winters of his last years working the claims, and died in Los Angeles on January 13, 1929. Though there was never an actual town on the site of Earp, there is a post office near Earp's mining claims at the eastern terminus of Highway 62 near Parker, AZ signed as "Earp, California" with a ZIP code of 92242. For amusement only there is a tiny cemetery showing the fake grave of Wyatt Earp. In regards to telephone communications, the entire region on the California side falls under area code 760. Its location in relationship to the county seat makes Earp the farthest point from the county seat at more than 220 miles (350 km) away. Unofficial alternate names of the area are listed as Drenna and Drennan.

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.
