3 Elements That Classify a Personal Injury Case
Every suit is different depending on the type of injury that has been experienced. There are three main factors for solidifying that in fact, you do have a personal injury case. The following are three consistent determinate for a personal injury claim.
- Negligence: For example, if you have suffered from a dog bite due to the owner not supervising their pet this can be grounds for negligence. Negligent parties that are responsible for severe injuries can include property owners, employers, reckless drivers or pet owners.
- Pain and suffering: There are several ways that you can prove pain and suffering. Pain and suffering includes emotional, psychological and physical damages. Evidence of these types of losses can involve an accumulation of medical bills, lost wages and photos that were taken at the scene of the accident.
- Redeemable losses: The number of earnings that you will win will depend on the severity of your injury. Much of personal injury suits have what you would call “compensatory damages.” Compensatory damages are the losses a victim has faced after their accident. It isn’t until the person involved in the accident is compensated that they are made “whole” again. Types of losses that could be recovered in your personal injury settlement are medical expenses, physical therapy and loss of wages.
Personal Injury Claims for Animal Bites
The California dog bite law states that if a person falls victim to a dog bite the owner becomes strictly responsible for the damages the victim has faced. If your dog has been involved in an attack you must report the incident right away. In some cases, if the dog attack was severe the dog is to be put in an enclosed area where it cannot reach other people. Whether your dog faces euthanization after an attack depends on the laws of the state.
What to do after a Fullerton animal attack:
Receive medical attention immediately: You must seek help from a medical professional right away. The quicker you get to a hospital the quicker you will receive care and the necessary medication for your injuries. It is also strongly suggested that you seek medical attention immediately just in case the dog is not vaccinated.
Compile as much evidence as possible: If there were any people that witnessed the attack, talk to them and ask them if they would contribute to your case. Also, any photographs of your wounds following the incident will aid you in receiving compensation for your medical bills.
Speak to a Fullerton personal injury lawyer: First and foremost, hold off on speaking to the dog owner’s insurance company. Contact an attorney first who specializes in these cases, so they may earn you the settlement you are entitled to.
Who Is Held Accountable?
Each year, millions of people experience serious injuries or even lose their lives to tragic accidents. Victims of the incidents and family members seek justice and compensation to move forward in the healing process.
There are a few components that hold an individual responsible for personal injuries. For example, if you have experienced a slip and fall due to a floorboard being wobbly at a store, the property owner would be held as the responsible party.
One element of holding the negligent party responsible is the legal term of “the burden of proof” and the “preponderance of the evidence.” In a civil suit, both are needed to prove carelessness.
The burden of proof involves the plaintiff(victim) proving that the negligent party was the cause of their injuries. The preponderance of evidence displays to a jury evidence proves “more likely than not” the fact that the defendant indeed is accountable.
Injured at a Fullerton Construction Site?
In one year alone, over 5,190 construction workers were killed on the job.
Most of the causes of workplace injuries or deaths:
- Caught in machinery
- Struck by equipment
There are many misconceptions of who is liable for an injured worker. Employers are not the only one who can be held accountable for the damages an employee faces. Other responsible parties can be manufactures of equipment used on the job site, contractors or engineers.

Years of experience adds to the credibility of an attorney's legal representation skills. Through out the years the personal injury lawyer may have acquired good relationships with claims adjusters or even insurance companies. Hers/his reputation may be widely known as either good or bad.
