Do I Need a Lawyer After a Personal Injury Accident?

If you suffer a serious injury due to an individual’s or a business owner’s mistake, you may need a skilled attorney to make sure you receive fair support during your recovery. An injury like a broken bone, or a Traumatic Brain Injury, could result in thousands of dollars of medical expenses.

When the cost of care skyrockets, insurance companies look for ways to wiggle out of taking responsibility. It’s why a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer is a critical protection to have. Your lawyer investigates your accident and has evidence ready when insurance adjusters try to blame you for your accident and limit the support you receive.

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

California empowers accident victims to seek help with their recovery costs if their accidents were caused by the negligence or carelessness of someone else. A personal injury claim hinges on a few legal requirements.

  • The at-fault party owed the victim a “duty of care.”
  • The “duty of care” wasn’t provided.
  • The lack of this care caused an accident and injury.

This duty of care means that people must avoid careless behavior that puts others in danger of accidents. Drivers on Highway 99 must not make reckless decisions that put other motorists at risk of a collision. Store owners must monitor their aisles to remove puddles and other dangers to prevent customers from taking painful falls.

It means a Bakersfield landlord is responsible for eliminating hazards around an apartment complex before a tenant or visitor can suffer an accident. It means a dog owner must restrain a dog on a leash to avoid unwanted interaction and devastating bite incidents.

In these cases, the victims have the legal right to ask for help to pay for medical care for an injury and the cost of repairs (in the case of a car accident). If it can be proven that an at-fault party contributed to an accident through negligence or recklessness, victims can earn support. This support would come through a settlement with an insurance company or through a lawsuit if an insurance company refuses to accept responsibility.

In some cases, several parties may be found negligent, meaning that more than one insurance company would have to provide compensation to the victim. Your lawyer helps you determine who was to blame and then targets the at-fault party’s liability insurance company and seeks full support. The at-fault party can be a corporate owner of a supermarket chain or restaurant. In this case, your Maison Law representative would meet their corporate lawyers head-on to make sure you were treated fairly.

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: even a small auto accident can lead to serious injuries with mounting medical and recovery bills, not to mention missed time from work.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: Bakersfield is nationally known as an unsafe place for people on foot. Injuries suffered in a collision with a car are often severe. Pedestrians risk their own wellbeing when forced to travel alongside busy city traffic.
  • Bicycle Accidents: when a bicycle accident happens in Bakersfield, the rider is subjected to potentially life threatening injuries. At the least, recovery is a long and expensive process that requires expert medical and legal support.
  • 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.
  • Dog Bites: Dog owners are usually fully responsible for dog bite injuries.
  • Premises Liability & Slip-And-Fall Accidents: 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.
  • Drowning Tragedies: Property owners and government entities can be held liable for drownings at city pools, hotel pools, and in rivers and lakes.
  • 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.
