Types of Cases Our Fountain Valley Personal Injury Lawyers Handle

Recovering fair compensation in a personal injury case requires strong evidence, proven legal strategies, and settlement negotiation skills. Some cases involve complex litigation, but if you have an experienced personal injury attorney by your side from the beginning, the defendant or insurance company may be more willing to offer a fair settlement. Before settlement negotiations begin, the lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will investigate your case thoroughly, gather evidence, talk to eyewitnesses, and possibly bring in expert witnesses if we believe they would strengthen your claim. We handle many types of injury cases including:

  • Car, Truck, Bus, and Motorcycle Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Dog Bites
  • Injuries Due to Dangerous Premises
  • Commercial Trucking Accidents
  • Aircraft Accidents
  • Slips and Falls
  • Uber & Lyft Accidents
  • Burn Injuries
  • Other Personal Injuries
  • Train Accidents
  • Bird Scooter Accidents

Damages in Fountain Valley Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases

You will need strong evidence to prove liability and damages to win your case. During your free initial consultation, our accident lawyers will review the evidence you have gathered and ask questions to determine who may be liable for your injuries, how we will investigate your case, and the types of evidence that will be needed to prove your claim. Depending on a variety of factors—including the extent of your injuries, the cause of your accident, the types of injuries you suffered, the cost of medical treatment, and the amount of time your injuries put you out of work—you may be entitled to compensation for economic damages and non-economic damages such as:

  • Past and future healthcare bills;
  • Lost wages;
  • Reduced or lost earning capacity;
  • Other expenses you have incurred due to your injuries;
  • Loss of enjoyment in life;
  • Loss of consortium;
  • Disability and disfigurement; and
  • Pain and suffering.

Exemplary damages, also called “punitive damages,” may be recoverable if the defendant’s conduct constituted malice, fraud, or oppression. Punitive damages are not awarded very often but may be recoverable in cases involving egregious behaviors such as hit-and-run accidents, drunk or drugged driving, or fleeing from police. If your loved one died and you bring a wrongful death claim, you may also be able to recover compensation for:

  • Healthcare expenses your loved one incurred due to his or her final injury;
  • Funeral and burial expenses;
  • Any financial support the decedent would have contributed to the family;
  • Lost gifts or benefits that would have gone to the decedent’s heirs;
  • Lost household services provided by the deceased; and
  • Loss of support, affection, love, comfort, society, and companionship.

We Are Aggressive Settlement Negotiators and Skilled Litigators

Most personal injury and wrongful death cases reach a settlement before going to trial. Settling a case out of court is typically in the best interests of the claimant, but it is important that your personal injury lawyer is willing to take your case to trial if the defendant does not offer a fair settlement. With decades of combined litigation experience, the Fountain Valley injury attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers know how to find success in court. Insurance companies in California know that we have a reputation for tough litigation, so it is often in their best interests to offer a fair settlement without going through the hassle of trial. Our goal is to help you and your family recover a fair settlement as quickly as possible. We will pursue this goal by gathering the necessary evidence, interviewing eyewitnesses, and possibly arranging testimony from expert witnesses. We will help you avoid mistakes that could lead to a liability or damages dispute, and we will use proven legal strategies to give your case an edge during settlement negotiations.
