We are all exposed to accidents wherever we are. Unfortunately, on many occasions, recklessness, negligence, or willful wrongdoing are the causes of these injuries, accidents, or illnesses. If you find yourself in a similar situation, it is essential to carefully consider your rights and the legal options available to help you through this difficult time.
According to California personal injury laws, a personal injury claim refers to a type of civil lawsuit that arises when a person suffers harm or loss due to an emotional, physical, or psychological injury. In California, any individual can be held liable for intentionally or negligently causing damage to another person.
Some examples of common personal injury cases are slip and fall accidents, motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, wrongful death lawsuits, premises liability, and product liability claims. In such cases, an injured party can sue another person or entity for damages if they can prove that they caused their injuries intentionally or negligently.
The compensations that can be obtained guarantee benefits such as:
- Lost wages. It includes the time you had to be absent from work after the injury, a reduction in wages if you had to return to a different job than the one you had before the accident, and the loss of earning abilities.
- Medical or funeral expenses. A personal injury compensation almost always includes medical care costs; it reimburses what you already spent and pays for estimated future costs.
- Compensation for death
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Vocational rehabilitation. It consists of covering the costs of a program that allows the injured person to develop a new skill to perform in another area.
