Do I Have Grounds for a Personal Injury Claim?
It’s not easy to stay positive after being seriously injured in a sudden accident. This is especially true if your financial security is in jeopardy due to medical bills and lost income. Fortunately, you may have several options for obtaining compensation to cover your injury-related expenses. Depending on the facts surrounding your accident, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim against the party who is liable for your damages. Negligence is the basis of most personal injury claims in California. A party is considered negligent when they fail to behave with a reasonable level of care that someone with ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. For instance, a driver would be considered negligent if he or she was speeding or operating a vehicle while under the influence. A business owner would be considered negligent if he or she failed to perform reasonable property maintenance and a customer was injured as a result. In some cases, strict liability applies, meaning negligence is not a prerequisite for filing a personal injury claim. In the state of California, strict liability applies to dog bite cases, meaning that if you were bitten by a dog, its owner may be held liable for your damages even if the owner was not negligent. You may also have grounds for a personal injury claim if you were injured due to someone else’s intentional wrongdoing. For example, if you were physically attacked in a parking lot, you might have grounds for a claim against the perpetrator and, depending on the circumstances, against the owner of the property where the attack occurred. Generally speaking, if you suffered an injury or loss due to another person’s negligence or intentional act, or in a circumstance where strict liability applies, you would have grounds for a personal injury claim.
