Trying to recover fair compensation after an accident or a serious injury can be extremely difficult. You’d think that the insurance company would be fair in handling your claim, but they may use underhanded tactics to delay payment, undervalue your claim, or deny responsibility altogether. An attorney can protect your rights and pursue fair compensation on your behalf.
Every case is different. Some may be worth hundreds of dollars, and others may be worth millions or even tens of millions. The value of your case will depend largely on the extent of injury you have experienced, both physical and emotional in nature. We will consider medical bills, ongoing medical treatment, lost earnings, future loss of earnings, emotional trauma, pain, suffering, and other losses or injuries when determining the fair value of your claim.
Negligence can be simply described as a failure to act with reasonable care. An example may be a property owner who knows that a stairway is missing a railing but does not fix it in a timely manner and does not place a sign warning others of the hazard. If someone falls and is injured as a result, that property owner may be responsible due to his negligence.
Legal responsibility in a personal injury claim may fall on the shoulders of any individual or entity that had an obligation to act in a certain way, violated that duty, and caused you harm as a result. In a car accident, for example, a driver who was texting and rear-ended you may be liable for your injuries.
Your California personal injury attorney may utilize accident reconstruction to determine what caused your accident and to prove fault. This may involve recreating the accident using a computer program, diagrams, or physical objects to show how it occurred and who was responsible for causing it. B&D Law Group works with accident reconstruction specialists when needed to build strong cases for our clients.
