California Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury lawyers specialize in the area of the law concerning injuries suffered by an individual as the result of negligence. Negligence means that someone is responsible for the injuries of another person. Negligence occurs when an individual, company, or government agency acts in a careless, forgetful, or inattentive manner, resulting in injury to another person. The types of negligence that may lead to a lawsuit include, but are not limited to the following:

“I’VE BEEN INJURED, WHAT DO I DO?”

The following are several important suggestions that you can do if you are injured as the result of negligence and you feel you may have a case. These suggestions may be important if you wish to build a strong case for yourself and to prove that your injuries resulted from someone else’s negligence.

“DO I NEED TO HIRE A LAWYER TO PURSUE MY CASE?”

You do not necessarily need to hire a lawyer to purse a personal injury case. However, personal injury lawyers who specialize in this area of the law have the ability to protect their clients’ interests and will be able to maximize the amount of the settlement for the victim. You should always hire a lawyer if your case falls under one of the following: long-term or permanently disabling injuries, severe injuries, and medical malpractice.

“WHAT CAN A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER DO FOR ME?”

A personal injury lawyer will attempt to prove two elements occurred as the result of your injury. First, your lawyer will establish that someone (the defendant) is responsible for your injuries. Next, your lawyer will prove that you have suffered damages as a result of your injury. Examples of damages may include but are not limited to medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and disability or deformity.

There are three ways a personal injury lawyer can establish that someone is responsible for your injuries. The first is negligence. This occurs when someone acts in a way that fails to prevent an injury. A personal injury lawyer will need to prove that the person responsible for your injury did not act in a reasonable manner in order to prevent the injury. The second way of establishing responsibility is called strict liability. This occurs when an injury results from the use of a defective product. The third way of establishing responsibility is referred to as an intentional wrong. This occurs when the person responsible for the injury acted in a way they knew would bring harm to another person.

A good personal injury lawyer can often settle your case without having to go to court. In addition, hiring a personal injury lawyer can help insure that your interests are protected during your lawsuit and will help maximize the damages you receive as a result of your injury.

“HOW DO I CHOOSE A GOOD PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER?”

When choosing a personal injury lawyer it is important to base the decision on several elements. You should choose a lawyer who specializes in personal injury law. Such a lawyer will have a much better understanding of the law associated with personal injuries and will be better able to represent you. It can also be helpful to choose a personal injury lawyer who has experience dealing with insurance companies. Also, make sure the lawyer you choose has trial experience. Lastly, choose a lawyer that respects you as a client.

PAYMENT

Personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means that they do not require any money up front to employ their services. Instead, a personal injury lawyer will accept a percentage of the final monetary settlement at the conclusion of the case.
