A personal injury claim can arise after any accident or event. Personal injury law, also known as tort law, provides that individuals may receive compensation for injury or harm caused by the negligent or intentional conduct of others. The personal injury lawyers at Maison Law believe that our clients deserve to receive strong representation and fair compensation for their injuries.
Here is a summary of some of the common types of personal injury claims.
*Motor Vehicle Accident
This is probably the most common type of personal injury case. Accidents are a regular occurrence on California’s roads and highways. They can lead to injuries and fatalities. If you are injured in an accident caused by another person, you are entitled to damages for medical bills, lost wages, and other financial damages.
When an accident or other event causes the loss of a loved one, California law gives you rights to counter the financial loss caused by this tragedy. You can recover funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, and, perhaps most importantly, the loss of the financial and emotional support that the deceased would have provided if the tragic event had not occurred.
*Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
California’s almost perfect weather creates a significant amount of year-round pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Both bicyclists and pedestrians have as much right to use the road as motor vehicles. Unfortunately, in any one-on-one interaction with a moving motor vehicle, a bicyclist or pedestrian is likely to suffer some injury or harm. Often, it is serious and can result in a fatality. When drivers act carelessly, you have rights as a bicyclist or pedestrian.
*Animal Bite or Attack
Owning a dog or any other animal, especially one that may be considered dangerous under some circumstances creates a duty to protect other persons from the animal regardless of whether the animal has ever shown any aggressive tendencies before the bite or attack. Sadly, not every California pet owner lives up to this great duty and responsibility.
*Trip and Fall
Any time we venture out to a public place owned, managed, and maintained by another private party, we trust that the property is in a safe condition absent of any hidden or present dangers. However, owners and operators often fail to properly maintain their property for reasons involving negligence and intentionally trying to cut costs. When this happens, these owners and operators must be held accountable if they cause any injuries or harm.
