Types of Personal Injury Cases

May 15, 2019

Here at Dordulian Law Group, we understand that injuries can can suddenly impact your life in profound ways, leaving you struggling to cope with your new circumstances. No matter what type of injury you’ve suffered, we can help you if that injury was the result of someone else’s negligence or ill intent. In today’s post, let’s learn more about the different types of personal injury cases and how our firm can help you get the justice you deserve.

1. Brain Injury

When you’ve suffered a brain injury, it can seem like returning to your old way of life is an uphill climb. It’s true that traumatic brain injuries can take a huge toll on your life plans, but getting the financial compensation you deserve can help you deal with the aftermath of your injury as much as possible.

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries, and these types of injuries are especially common in rollover accidents or other types of severe car wrecks. It’s certainly possible to cause a rollover accident without anyone else’s involvement, but all too often, other drivers or hazardous road conditions can cause your car to go plummeting down a hillside or roll into the median.

Even a “smaller” brain injury, like a concussion, can take a long time to heal and can disrupt your quality of life and/or earning potential. Here at Dordulian Law Group, we’ve helped countless clients successfully sue for the brain injury compensation they deserve in California courts.

2. Pedestrian Accidents

Driving isn’t just dangerous for the people behind the wheel and the occupants of cars. All too often, pedestrians are the victims of automobile-related accidents.

It’s relatively easy to establish responsibility in pedestrian accident cases. If you were observing every rule of the road, such as stopping at crosswalks and obeying traffic lights, in most scenarios we’ll be able to show that the driver was to blame.

With the rise of electric scooters in urban areas, pedestrian accidents are becoming even more frequent. To achieve the generous compensation you deserve for your accident, you’ll need a legal team by your side that understands the rapidly shifting intricacies of pedestrian accident law in California.

3. Work Injury

Workplace injuries happen with alarming frequency, and they’re often avoidable. To help you with a work injury case, we’ll start by meticulously probing into the details of the situation. We’re masters of workplace regulations and laws here at Dordulian Law Group, and as soon as we’re up to speed with the specific details of your workplace, we’ll be able to determine whether your accident qualifies for legal action.

To secure adequate compensation for your injury, we’ll produce a theory of the case that carefully explains how, even though you were following every relevant rule and regulation, negligence in your workplace led to your injury. We have a proven track record of achieving excellent results for our work injury clients.

4. Truck Accidents

Semi trucks are no joke: 20,000 pounds of steel can do a lot of damage. California truck accident law is clear; whichever party failed to uphold its duty to keep California’s nearly 200,000 miles of roads safe is responsible for the accident. In most cases, all the relevant details of the case can be established at the scene of the accident.

Getting reasonable compensation for a truck accident, however, isn’t always straightforward. To properly deal with the type of damage that a semi tractor or trailer can do, you’ll need to work with attorneys who know how to navigate the complexities of California truck accident law.

5. Vaccine Damage

Did you have an allergic reaction to a vaccine? Thousands of people have successfully sued for vaccine damage, and the federal government has set aside a special fund to provide compensation for people who experience adverse reactions to vaccines.

Vaccines are an important part of public health in general. However, there’s nothing in the world that can make up for the unexpected horror of watching a loved one suffer from vaccine damage. If a court determines that you’re eligible for compensation for your vaccine damage, however, precedent shows you could receive a settlement of as much as $250,000.

6. Car Accidents

From minor fender benders to serious rollover accidents, nearly every type of car accident results in some type of damage to your vehicle or your body. In some cases, automotive collisions can be true accidents with no clear responsible party, but someone is almost always to blame when two vehicles collide.

To defend your interests to the best of our abilities before a California judge, we’ll learn everything there is to know about your case. While we never guarantee results we might not be able to achieve, our detailed understanding of California car accident law combined with our total dedication to our clients consistently delivers excellent results.

7. Slip and Fall

The administrators of public places have a responsibility to keep these spaces safe and reasonably clear of obstructions. Whether you fell because of negligent walkway maintenance in front of a downtown hotel or slipped on a poorly-maintained city sidewalk, we can help you receive just compensation from the party that was responsible for your accident.

California slip and fall injury law is clear: As long as you were lawfully on the premises where you fell and the owner of the property was aware or should have been aware of the hazard, the proprietor is responsible for compensating your injury. Here at Dordulian Law Group, we know exactly how to frame your case to leave no question that the proprietor was responsible.

8. Dog Bite

Most dogs are harmless, but the wrong dog might injure or scar you for life. California dog bite law clearly lays the blame on the dog owner as long as you were in a public space or lawfully on the dog owner’s property.

Plus, dog owners in California have strict liability for any injuries their pets cause. Strict liability means that a California dog owner can’t get off the hook just because he or she didn’t know that the dog that bit you was a menace.

Even if the dog owner tries to argue that you were trespassing as a defense to your suit, we know how to put together compelling case theories that leave no confusion about who is responsible. If you were wrongly injured by a dog, we’ll do everything in our power to set things right.

9. Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can easily be deadly. Even when these types of accidents don’t claim lives, they can cause serious injuries that may never heal.

Litigating a motorcycle accident lawsuit is similar to litigating a car accident case in many ways. As in the case with normal vehicle accidents, winning a motorcycle accident case is all about clearly expressing who was in the wrong.

Many car and truck drivers aren’t mindful enough of motorcycles on the road, and dangerous road conditions can also cause avoidable motorcycle accidents. If circumstances beyond your control caused your accident, we won’t rest until you’ve received the justice you need to overcome your injury.
