Personal Injury

If you or your loved ones have suffered harm because of another individual or group’s negligence, then you need an expert to guide you through the complexities of personal injury law in the State of California.

Ultimately, the burden of proof rests upon the victim. And the victim must prove liability, but also show that the damages sought are justified.

Building up a credible personal injury case can only be done with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer to determine the defendant’s liability, and degree or extent of damages. The worth of a personal injury claim takes into account a number of factors, such as the extent of the injuries the victim has suffered. Medical bills, loss of income or earning capacity, and pain and suffering are considerations for determining fair monetary compensation that the defendant owes the victim.

In sum, personal injury law aims to adequately compensate the victims’ pain and suffering, as well as deter the recurrence of similar behavior.

Examples of common personal injury cases are:

  • Car Accident
  • Truck Accident
  • Motorcycle Accident
  • Pedestrian Accident
  • Bicycle Accident
  • Hit and Run
  • Uninsured Motorist
  • Railroad/Metrolink Accidents Negligence
  • Premises Liability
  • Catastrophic Injury
  • Birth Injury
  • Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
  • Clergy Abuse
  • Foster Care Abuse
  • Dog Bites
  • Slip, Trip & Fall Injury
  • Brain Injury
  • Spine Injury
  • Burn Injury
  • Pool Drowning Accident
  • Wrongful Death
  • Consumer Fraud
  • Premises Liability
  • Defamation

The four elements that the plaintiff must prove to establish the defendant’s liability are:

  • The defendant had a duty of care towards the plaintiff;
  • The duty of care was breached;
  • The breach caused the plaintiff injury; and
  • The plaintiff suffered damages as a result.
