California Personal Injury Lawyers

Compensation is the name of the game when it comes to personal injury lawyers in California. Their objective is to get as much compensation for the plaintiff as possible.

Kinds of Personal Injury Cases in California

Personal injury cases in California fall under civil lawsuits, which means that the offender is liable only for monetary compensation, and cannot be charged with any criminal liability.

Personal injury cases in California are pigeonholed into three different categories: intentional tort, negligent tort and strict liability. Intentional tort is quite self-explanatory: It is a case where the injury or harm was intentionally executed by the offender. Negligent tort occurs when a person?s negligence, recklessness or unintentional actions cause injury to another person. Even if the injury is caused by a dog, it is the pet-owner who is held liable for the actions of the animal. Strict liability does not require any proof that it was the negligence of the offender that caused injury.

Common Cases

Since most of the personal injury cases that happen in California involve negligence, California injury lawyers are trained to litigate negligent tort. These lawyers specialize in bringing into court personal injury cases resulting from car accidents, traffic collisions, structure liability, injury caused by dangerous property conditions, slip and fall accidents, machine accidents, dog bites or dog attacks. Most of these cases are covered by California homeowner?s liability insurance, California auto insurance, or California underinsured or uninsured motorist insurance policies.

In cases of negligence that lead to the death of another person, a California personal injury lawyer can help the plaintiff (victim?s relatives or heirs) bring the case to the California civil court. The claimant can sue the offender for the death of a loved one and seek compensation for the damages, but only the state?s district attorney who can raise a case on criminal charges.
