To understand if you have a personal injury case, it is important to understand the three areas of liability that allow a victim of a Ventura accident to pursue a personal injury claim: negligence, strict liability and intentional wrongdoing. The most common area of liability is negligence.

Negligence

An individual can be held liable for your injuries if he or she was careless is causing them. Someone who acts negligently does not intend to cause an injury but does cause the accident through thoughtlessness or carelessness can be held accountable. Here are a few questions to ask in order to determine if there was negligence. Would a reasonable person have caused the accident? How could it have been prevented? A judge or an attorney will weigh the actions of the negligent parties against how a reasonable person is expected to act.

The injured party in a personal injury case must prove that there was a:

  • Duty of Care: The defendant owed a duty of care to the claimant. Generally, people have a duty to act reasonably and to not cause an injury to another. Ventura car drivers have the duty to drive safely and not put others in danger. Storeowners have a duty of care to provide safe premises. Employers have a duty of care to provide a safe workplace to their employees. What duty of care did the defendant have with regard to the claimant?
  • Breach of Duty of Care: Did the defendant breach the duty of care? Did the car's driver exceed the speed limit putting other drivers in danger? Did the storeowner fail to post warning signs around a slippery walkway? Did the employer fail to provide adequate safety devices and training?
  • What Caused the Injury: Did the breach of duty of care directly result in the accident? There must be a link between the defendant's negligence and the victim's suffering.
  • Damages: What types of losses were suffered in the accident? Ventura personal injury victims may pursue compensation for physical injuries, financial losses and even emotional turmoil.

Strict Liability

This is when someone is responsible for an accident whether or not he or she was negligent. Victims in strict liability cases will not have to prove that the defendant was careless, but instead that the defendant was responsible for your injuries. For example, dog owners in California are liable for the damages their dogs cause. The manufacturers of defective products are also responsible for the damages their products cause under strict liability law.

Intentional Wrongdoing

This is when the defendant's criminal and intentional act directly resulted in the injuries. Victims of abuse may file a criminal complaint against the at-fault party, but a criminal proceeding will not result in financial compensation for the victim's suffering. A civil lawsuit, however, can result in support for losses such as medical bills and lost wages.

These types of cases are not, however, always feasible or worthwhile. Intentional wrongdoing civil cases are practical for the victim when the at-fault party has resources that can actually cover the victim's losses. A skilled Ventura personal injury lawyer can assess a case of wrongdoing and help the victim determine if a civil lawsuit is in their best interest.

Protecting Your Rights

If you have suffered an injury as the result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing, it may be in your best interest to discuss your legal rights and options with an experienced Ventura personal injury lawyer.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”

“We received an email from A.G. Edwards stating they have received the settlement check from Nissan. Once again, I cannot begin to articulate our gratitude to the Bisnar Chase staff - we are so very thankful for all you have done for Josh. As parents, Charlotte and I can rest in peace, when that day comes, knowing that Josh's needs have been taken care of, and his financial future is in good hands with sound financial planners at A.G. Edwards. On December 17, 2003 we received a call from the paramedics stating that Josh and Lisa had been in a severe accident, and we needed to meet them at the emergency room. I remember telling God that I can deal with missing limbs because they can be replaced, but please do not take him from us. A month later we met with members of your staff for the first time, Josh had a traumatic brain injury and his future was looking pretty bleak; we had no idea where he would be eighteen months later. All we could think of at the time was that our son's future, his goals, and dreams had been taken from him so abruptly. As time passed, Josh continued to improve and he began his journey of recovery. Many have been involved in this process, and you and your staff have been an integral part of Josh's recovery, and we will be forever grateful. God has brought so many people into our lives, and we are so very blessed. Numerous emails were sent to Personal Injury Attorney's. John...you were on a ski trip at Big Bear with your family, and you were the only Personal Injury Attorney to respond - I believe this was divine intervention. Josh has a professor from Mt. San Jacinto College who has taken him "under his wing," and is showing him other career possibilities. John, the future looks good for Josh - thank you!”
