Personal Injury Claims for Victims in Eastvale
An accident or injury in California involves an incident that results in damage to your person(yourself), property, or even both. The incident may have occurred due to the negligence of another party, an intentional act of another party, or a defective product. The other party could be an individual, a corporation, a business, governmental agency or other. In situations where another is responsible for the accident and or injury, under California Law, personal injury claims can be pursued. In these situations it is important to understand your rights as a victim to keep them from being disregarded by others. All types of accidents and injuries have their own circumstances, but a personal injury attorney will understand how to navigate your case towards the best possible outcome.
Common Reasons Accidents or Injuries Occur in Eastvale, CA
Negligence Due To Another Party – Negligence, in California, happens when someone (a person or entity) has failed to act the way a reasonable person would have in the same situation. Generally, a reasonable person will act in a manner to avoid causing an accident or injury to you. Negligence is when the presumed “at fault” party did not act in this manner. Due to this lack of action, California civil code classifies this person or party as liable for your accident and related expenses and damages. Compensation recovered could include one or a combination of: medical costs, any property damage sustained, lost income and even monetary compensation for pain and suffering. With accidents or injuries resulting in death, additional compensation may be recoverable such as funeral and burial costs by way of a wrongful death claim.
An Intentional Act Where Injury Occured – Intentional acts by a party or person to a victim who suffers an injury can also lead way to personal injury claims. After an incident resulting in harm, that was intentional and damages occurred to your person or your property, you may be able to fight and recover compensation under California law. Intentional acts, in California, are typically classified as a criminal act in which the parties responsible can be held accountable both criminally under the California penal code, as well as legally responsible under California civil code. It is important to note that each claim are for the most part separate from each other and even held and tried in separate courts. Nonetheless, the responsible party can be ordered to pay damages to the victim either by settlement or court jury trial or order.
A Defective Product – Products Liability – A personal injury claim by way of defective product is commonly referred to as “Products Liability”. These claims involve a victim of an accident or injury that happened while using a product the way the manufacturer had intended. “As intended” meaning within the normal operations and within the outlined instructions of the product, specifically the normal function and use of it. Inherently the product had a defect either in design, or production, but either way if damages were sustained a claim can be pursued. These types of claims are complex and a personal injury attorney with the experience of products liability can provide more specific information as to the requirements and options available to file claim.
