RIP Larry Parker

RIP Larry Parker, the ‘We’ll Fight for You’ Guy

May 01, 2024

Our longtime colleague, who practiced personal injury law for fifty years and was practically a household name in Los Angeles, was 75. The personal injury attorney, who started his Long Beach-based law practice in 1974, was one of the first lawyers to use mass marketing techniques, including television ads. 

Those ads made him something of a pop culture celebrity. When Bob Odenkirk made his debut as Saul Goodman on “Breaking Bad” in 2012, one critic called the character “the Larry H. Parker of Albuquerque.”

Parker’s law partner and daughter-in-law confirmed his death but offered no other details in the matter.

Why Do You Need to Hire a Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer?

All accident victims need lawyers, even after a minor car accident. Most people have dealt with an insurance company over a payment, claim, or other such issue. If companies are difficult to deal with in these situations, and they nearly always are, imagine what a personal injury claim, which could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, must be like.

Usually, insurance companies have lawyers on the payroll. Within two or three hours of an accident, these attorneys start looking for ways to reduce or deny compensation to victims. Frequently, they simply bully victims at vulnerable times. We’ve seen insurance companies try to settle claims for three or four hundred dollars while victims are in the hospital, groggy because of their injuries and medication, and running up a $4,000 per day bill.

A Los Angeles personal injury lawyer has professional relationships with doctors who normally charge nothing upfront, instead of $4,000 a day. Furthermore, lawyers evaluate insurance company offers and determine if they’re fair. If the offer is unfair, an attorney forces an insurance company to step up to the plate.

How Do I Find the Right California Personal Injury Lawyer?

Mr. Parker was successful for so many years because he was experienced, his firm had considerable resources, and he was dedicated to his clients. Your lawyer should have the same qualities.

Experienced lawyers use proven methods to get fast results, even in complicated cases like airplane accidents. Inexperienced lawyers must slowly learn everything on the fly. As for resources, no private law firm can possibly match an insurance company’s resources. But no one can possibly win alone. Even the Lone Ranger had Tonto and Iron Man had Yinsen.

Dedication to clients may be the most important quality. Beware of lawyers who handle personal injury cases on the side or brag about their high settlement rates. These lawyers usually aren’t in for the long haul and look for an easy way out.
