Types of Personal Injury Cases We Work With
While providing legal services to people who have been injured by others, we take on a wide variety of cases. Here are just a few examples of the types of personal injury claims and lawsuits that we represent injured victims in:
- Auto Accidents: These don’t just involve two passenger vehicles in a collision. They might also involve victims who are motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, skateboarders or e-scooter riders.
- Truck Accidents: Gigantic 18-wheelers can be more than 70 feet long and weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When they impact with a passenger vehicle, severe injuries or fatalities can result.
- Uber and Lyft Accidents: Special rules apply to passengers and others who have been injured by these transportation network providers. We use those rules to the client’s advantage.
- Motorcycle Crashes: Motorcyclists are exposed and vulnerable to serious injuries or death from a collision. They’re far more likely to be killed or seriously injured in an accident than drivers or occupants of other vehicles.
- Bus Accidents: Whether it’s a school, city, private or shuttle bus, nearly all passengers don’t have seat belts available. We represent both children and adults who have been injured in bus accidents.
- Premises Liability: Dangerous conditions in homes and businesses cause injuries to people in slip-and-falls, trip-and-falls and other accidents. In big box warehouse stores, merchandise even comes crashing down on customers from high above.
- Product Liability: A product might have a dangerous defect from the design or manufacturing process. A manufacturer might not market the product properly either. People are injured or die every day from dangerously defective products.
- Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse: Some nursing homes don’t provide proper care and treatment of their residents. Physical, psychological, sexual and financial abuse might also occur in these facilities.
- Wrongful Death: If a family member died as a result of the negligence of somebody else, a wrongful death action seeking monetary damages can be filed as a civil action. Monetary damages are not allowed to be sought in the criminal courts.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if my loved one died in a car accident?
If your spouse or household relative dies in a car accident, you can seek compensation through a wrongful death claim if you can prove that the other driver negligently caused the death. The damages are determined by the impact of the losses you suffer because of their death.
What if the insurance company is saying that the accident was my fault?
Remember, the insurance adjuster’s job is to pay you as little as possible. Some adjusters will tell you things that are just not true, so don’t listen to them. Instead, talk to an attorney who knows the law and has experience going up against the big insurance companies and their lawyers.
What if the driver of the other car that hit me has no money?
California law requires every driver to have insurance; however, many drivers break the law and drive without insurance. An experienced attorney can look for other sources of compensation if this happens. For example, the victim can use their own uninsured/underinsured motorist’s coverage to pay for their injuries.
