A previous post on this California blog talked about the elements of proving a negligence claim in a personal injury case, and specifically, a premises liability case. This post discussed how negligence is the ordinary standard, used in many different types of personal injury cases, judges or juries use to decide whether a party responsible for an accident will or will not have to pay compensation for an injury.
It is not always easy to prove negligence. While this is often the case even in motor vehicle accidents, it is particularly so in other contexts, like professional malpractice, premises liability and other, less common types of personal injury cases.
Still, on the most basic level, when someone has been physically hurt by someone else's carelessness, then that person deserves to have the responsible party pay that person's bills and losses arising in connection with that accident. The victim may therefore need the help of an experienced attorney in establishing that the other party was indeed legally responsible for the victim's injuries and thus owes compensation.
In this respect, our law office has experience helping people who have been injured in a variety of circumstances. We do assist victims of car, truck and motorcycle accidents, as well as pedestrians accidents and other traffic-related accidents. However, we also represent people who have been hurt on the property of another person or business or who have been hurt at work and are looking for sources of compensation beyond what their workers' comp benefits will pay.
One of the most important services we offer is proving that negligence happened in the first place. This takes a lot of investigation as well as legal skill and strategy, but our clients have historically seen that we rise to the occasion.
