What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury claim is a claim for injuries caused by the fault of another person. Here are some examples:
- Fault in a car accident case could be the result of reckless or careless driving, such as driving too fast or some other violation of the California Vehicle Code.
- Fault in a dog bite case could be the result of a dog owner’s reckless or careless failure to prevent their dog from injuring someone.
- Fault in a slip and fall case could be the result of an employee’s reckless or careless failure to clean up water leaking from a refrigerator.
- Fault can also be in the form of intentional conduct such as an unprovoked physical attack.
- These are just some examples. Call our office for a free consultation if you suffered injuries that were caused by someone else.
Who can be compensated in a Personal Injury case?
