Personal Injury in California
Personal Injury is an area of law that was created to protect a person who has been hurt or harmed because of another person’s intent, negligence, or recklessness. It requires the responsible party to compensate the party that was harmed. For this to occur, two tests must be proven: damages and liability. Damages are established by examining their extent and nature. Liability is then confirmed if the defendant is responsible for those damages.
There are many facets to this area of law. You could require a personal injury lawyer if you have experienced any of these situations or events:
- You were injured in a motor vehicle accident that was not your fault.
- You were hurt when you were shopping at a store and slipped due to a spill on the floor.
- Your healthcare professional misdiagnosed your health issue, and it resulted in a more severe or detrimental condition.
- A loved one was killed because of another person’s carelessness.
- You were walking in your neighborhood, and a neighbor’s dog ran up to you and bit you.
- You were injured when using a product that malfunctioned.
