Fighting for Your Right to Maximum Compensation

There are many types of accidents and injuries that, as a victim, you may be entitled to compensation for, including, car, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents. The Law Help Center can assist with personal injury cases for the following and more: Slip and falls, car accidents, truck accidents, animal bites, and motorcycle accidents. Our personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles can efficiently guide you throughout the claims process while protecting your rights at every stage.

Slip/Trip & Fall

Personal injuries come in many different forms and slip and falls are one of them. Slip and fall accidents are very common and many people suffer serious injuries because of them every year. Trip and fall and slip and fall injuries can occur due to the negligence of others, whether it be in a grocery store or in the so-called “comfort” of other people’s homes.

While the requirements for a public location and a private home in the recovery for slip and falls are different, the basic premise is that the property owner owed the victim a duty of reasonable care, the property owner breached that duty of care, and the victim was injured due to that breach of duty.

Car Accidents

Personal injury claims for car accidents are the most common personal injury claims in not only California but in the United States.

However, in California, if you are partially at fault, there are shared-fault laws that may impact the amount of compensation that you may receive. California follows the pure comparative negligence rule. The pure comparative negligence rule reduces the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to receive for your injury. But, that shouldn’t stop you from seeking the compensation that you deserve for the injury that you suffered.

Dog Bites

In California, a victim of a dog bite may recover for their injuries if the victim’s injury is caused by that bite and if the victim was bitten while they were lawfully in a private place (such as a home) or in a public place. California is a strict liability state and the dog’s owner will be liable for that injury even if the dog had not shown aggressiveness in the past.

If the victim provoked the dog, was trespassing on private property, or if the dog was carrying out government or police duties (such as a k-9 dog), the victim may not be able to recover for their injuries.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a form of personal injury that victims suffer while in the care of medical professionals. When a victim is injured or suffers death at the hands of the incompetence of medical professionals, they or their families may be able to recover.

Statute of Limitations

There is a statute of limitations on personal injury claims in California. The statute of limitations against an individual or corporation in California is two years from the date the injury occurred to the date the claim is filed. However, the statute of limitations against a California city, county, or state agency or entity is six months from the date the injury occurred to the date the claim is filed.

In addition, California does not allow recovery for non-economic pain and suffering for uninsured drivers, except in cases where the other driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol and the driver is convicted of DUI.
