Have you been seriously injured in an accident? Do you believe you’re eligible to file for personal injury compensation but aren’t sure how to go about filing a case? An Elk Grove personal injury lawyer from our office can discuss your case with you and help you determine how much your case is worth.
An injury can happen to even the most careful individual, and not all accidents will qualify you to file a personal injury claim in Elk Grove. The best way to determine whether you have a case is to look for the involvement of negligence in the accident.
You must also have suffered some kind of damages—you can’t file a personal injury claim for a close call.
A few examples of common personal injury claim types are shown below, along with examples of how negligence might have played a role:
|Common Accidents||Example of Negligence as the Cause|
|Motor vehicle collisions||A driver ran a red light and collided with your car because he or she was texting. You were seriously injured in the crash, so you would be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.|
|Serious and catastrophic injuries||You were walking down the street and were seriously injured when you fell down an uncovered and unmarked manhole. The government might be liable if workers failed to mark the hazard.|
|Defective products||You were operating a gas-powered lawnmower when it suddenly exploded, leaving extensive burns over much of your body. You could sue the manufacturer of the lawnmower if negligence in manufacturing is determined.|
|Premises liability||You were at a home improvement store and some lumber fell on you due to a worker’s failure to properly secure it. The worker claims he or she wasn’t trained properly. You could hold the store liable for your injuries.|
Now you should have an idea of whether you have a personal injury case, but you need to know what kind of compensation you can get. When you file a claim seeking compensation from the at-fault party, you are eligible to recover damages you sustained in the accident, both monetary and non-monetary.
