Personal Injury law is a wide-ranging area of the law and one with which people who are not lawyers are most familiar. Simply stated, personal injury lawyers help people recover from any accidental or intentional conduct that causes a physical or psychological injury. With a few exceptions, Personal Injury Lawyers are the people to seek out if you are injured because of the negligent or intentional conduct of another. The most significant exception to personal injury law is when a person is injured at work or during do one’s job. A person injured while working must pursue their claim through the Workers Compensation system and cannot sue to recover for his/her injuries. Our firm is eager to assist you in helping you to recover from your injuries whether at work or at home.
What To Do If I’m Injured At Work
Personal injury law focuses on how to assign responsibility and recover from the numerous amounts of ways that a person can be hurt due to someone else’s conduct. One focus of personal injury law is when someone deliberately causing an injury by striking, assaulting and/or kidnapping a person. Another area of focus is when a person is hurt because a person acted negligently, such as if someone falls on another person’s property or if a person is in a car accident. A person who is injured due to the malpractice of a doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner would also consult a Personal Injury Attorney, although it is best to find someone who specializes in medical malpractice.
California is a comparative negligence state. In some states, a person is may be blocked from recovering for an injury caused by someone else if the plaintiff’s negligence contributed even slightly to his/her own injury. That system is known as contributory negligence. California, like a majority of states, does not bar awards, even if a person is partially responsible for his/her damages. California follows the “pure” comparative negligence rules. In California, a person can recover no matter the extent of his/her responsibility for his/her injury. For example, if a person is involved in a car accident in Los Angeles, that person can recover some award even if the court finds that he/she is 90% responsible for the accident. The award given to the plaintiff is reduced by the amount of responsibility that he/she has for the damages that he/she sustained.
