Personal injury cases in California can vary in terms of severity, leaving victims with a range of injuries and expenses. Unfortunately, these accidents can happen to anyone.

The field of personal injury law involves accidents or incidents that, through no fault of the victim, lead to an injury. The victim in a personal injury case may suffer physical injuries, psychological damage, and even permanent disability due to another party’s negligent behavior. In every case, the plaintiff must prove that his or her injury was caused by another person or entity. From car accidents to a simple slip and fall, proving negligence in a personal injury case is imperative.
Accidents in the personal injury practice arena are so diverse that victims commonly (though incorrectly) believe that their injuries are not compensable. As a general rule, if you’ve suffered an injury that resulted in any type of financial loss (medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage), you should speak to an experienced Torrance personal injury attorney immediately about filing a claim. Although winning a personal injury lawsuit isn’t a foregone conclusion, everyone in California has the right to investigate the circumstances behind any financial losses or pain and suffering, and pursue a fair financial damages award to help assure a complete recovery.
In many cases, even if a victim causes an accident they still may be able to recover some damages under California’s comparative fault (shared fault) laws. Additionally, negligence is not always easy to determine at first glance. A product malfunction may be the culprit, or a faulty roadway or parking lot. In many cases, injuries may occur because something that looks like an accident has an underlying cause much more sinister or careless than coincidence.
Many personal injuries end up being benign, almost non-existent. For others, however, injuries sustained in car accidents or dog bites can be quite severe, and impact the victim for years to come. Victims may choose to write off their injuries without the benefit of a legal consultation, potentially leaving behind a large settlement or judgment in their favor. Personal injury lawyers represent the interests of victims and fight against insurance companies, businesses, private citizens, or even government agencies.

A personal injury lawsuit does not exist in a vacuum. The California court system expects the plaintiff and their attorney to produce four elements proving the liability of the defendant or defendants. Someone who has just suffered an injury may not have such evidence or information readily available. This is where an experienced DLG personal injury lawyer can be of great assistance, working to help take a closer look and uncover details of the incident that speak to each element, including:
In the wake of an accident or injury, it must be clear that the responsible party is, at least in part, liable for the people it encounters.
In simpler terms, a driver that speeds, drives recklessly, or does not leave a proper stopping distance is violating their duty of care to others on the road/in the vicinity.
If the plaintiff’s condition arises after the incident, a medical expert may tie their condition to the accident. For instance, someone who falls because of faulty handrails around an office building may suffer a slight bump on the head. That victim may go to the doctor months later with blurry vision, and a licensed ophthalmologist may diagnose a neurological or optometric condition caused by the fall.

Personal injury claims occur every day in a variety of ways. Accident victims may not realize they are eligible for compensation until someone mentions that they should sue. Or, the thought might linger in the back of your mind, knowing that something is not right, but you may not make the correlation between your accident/incident and a resulting injury or trauma. Common personal injury claims result after various types of incidents including:
After filing a personal injury lawsuit, compensation (compensatory damages) will vary depending on the victim’s specific losses, and claims generally include:
Speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to avoid any delays in your case. It is difficult to recover from these incidents, and victims often feel overwhelmed by their medical debt, lack of gainful employment, and the pressure to recover quickly. Act soon, because the California statute of limitations for more personal injury claims is only two years from the date of the injury.
Exceptions may apply depending on the nature of the claim. Medical malpractice claims, for example, only have a one-year statute of limitations from the date the malpractice was discovered. To be certain that you do not miss the statute of limitations deadline pertaining to your specific claim, act contact a personal injury lawyer at DLG immediately to ensure your legal rights are protected, and your case proceeds without any delay.
Obtaining legal representation to assist with pursuing justice in a personal injury claim allows victims to recover damages and move forward with their lives. Accidents and injuries occur every day, but those resulting from negligence, malice, or misconduct deserve compensation. Even if the responsible parties are not held liable in criminal court, a civil case helps victims exact what is often the only form of justice available to them.
Personal injury cases can include car accidents, trucking accidents, slip and falls, wrongful death claims, dog bites, medical malpractice, premises liability claims, TBI or spinal cord injuries, and much more.
