PERSONAL INJURY LAWSUITS
Personal injury lawsuits are civil cases filed in court by individuals who have suffered physical or psychological harm due to negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another person, business, or entity. These lawsuits can involve any type of injury, including car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, and workplace accidents. The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to hold the responsible party accountable and to obtain compensation for the injured party’s medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. In some cases, punitive damages may also be sought.
Personal injury law is one of the most prevalent areas of law in which individuals seek legal counsel. Personal injury laws encompass everything from automobile accidents and construction accidents to medical malpractice, wrongful death, canine bites, nursing home abuse, and slip-and-fall accidents.
Personal injury law incorporates premises liability and product liability laws as well. When a person is injured on a property, the proprietor is held liable under premises liability laws. Product liability laws hold parties responsible for damages and injuries resulting from defective products.
Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when a person suffers harm as a result of an accident or injury, and another party may be legally liable for that harm or tort. The insurance company of the responsible party will compensate the injured party financially for medical expenses, agony and suffering, and other ongoing medical expenses. Your personal injury attorney will collaborate with insurance companies and hospital attorneys if the case involves medical malpractice.
In a personal injury lawsuit , typically, insurance companies will try to settle a personal injury case and give a low-ball offer before the victim hires a civil attorney. If that is unsuccessful, attorneys from both sides will attempt to resolve the personal injury case in the form of an informal early settlement. If the civil lawyers feel the settlement offer is not sufficient for the personal injury and both parties cannot come to an agreement, the attorneys will make preparations for a lawsuit.

Personal injury law in California permits accident and injury victims to file claims and litigation against those responsible for the harm. Moreover, with a two-year statute of limitations from the date of the injury, victims must act swiftly to file claims. The majority of personal injury lawyers, including those at our firm, operate on a contingency basis. This eliminates the need for victims to pay legal fees out of pocket, as attorneys are paid a percentage of the settlement once it has been collected.

California is a “comparative fault” state, that is, the amount of compensation you get for your personal injury will depend on the percent of which the other party is at fault. The best civil attorneys will reduce the percentage fault of the injured client and thus increase the percentage fault of the other party, in effect increasing compensation.
