Personal Injury Overview:
A viable personal injury lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court or Orange County Superior Court can include any claim that someone was negligent, grossly negligent or purposefully caused you to be injured without justification. If the person or entity causing you harm was a government agency or government agent different rules will apply and those claims are not addressed herein. Any personal injury that you suffered because of the other person’s negligence, gross negligence or purposeful conduct may be the subject of a personal injury lawsuit and result in award of compensation for all damages which were the proximate result of the defendant’s conduct.
All injuries suffered by a party are recoverable even if they were not the exact type of injury expected from the defendant’s conduct. An example would be that someone trips you while you are walking, and you fall and break your arm and then your broken arm causes you further injuries. A defendant is liable for all foreseeable injuries caused to an injured party. A required element of negligence is proving that the party causing the injury owed a duty to prevent the type of injury in which you incurred. Examples of a viable personal injury claim would include but are not limited to the following types of injuries, slip and fall, dog bite, car accident involving cars and or bicyclists, premises liability, food poisoning, assault, battery, etc… A personal injury claim is also not limited to damages caused to a person and may include damages caused to your personal property or your real property.
