Types of Personal Injury Claims

Southern California has a higher traffic accident rate than any other region in the country. My firm can offer the aggressive and experienced representation that you need in order to recover damages from a negligent driver. I handle all types of car crash cases, including cases of texting while driving, tired driving, and drunk driving accidents. I also handle motorcycle crash cases, which are some of the most dangerous of all traffic accidents. Most motorcycle collisions result in catastrophic injury for the motorcyclist, such as road rash, broken bones, brain injuries, and / or spinal cord injuries. If you've been hit while riding your motorcycle, my firm can fight skillfully to maximize your compensation.

Were you injured while riding your bicycle? I understand your bicyclist rights and can hold a negligent person accountable for the damages they have caused you to suffer. My firm also understands insurance coverage for bicyclists and can make sure that you are not the victim of bad faith. I handle cases ranging from bicycle and car accidents to defective bicycle product crashes.

Negligent property owners and managers can also be held liable for accidents that occur on their property due to their negligence. Perhaps you have slipped and fallen due to a spill, unmarked wet floors, or any other slip or trip hazards that were not cleared away. Maybe you were attacked by someone's dog or were the victim of a crime due to negligent security. I can represent you in a claim for any such damages that result from premises liability.

Wrongful death claims are another area in which I have much experience. You have every right to file a claim for compensation if you have lost a family member in a crash because of someone else's negligence. I understand that nothing can truly compensate for the loss of your loved one, but even so, you deserve to have all financial and emotional damages compensated by the responsible party. I can help hold them accountable for their actions and for your damages by representing you in a wrongful death claim.

How Much Is a Personal Injury, Catastrophic Injury, or Wrongful Death Case Worth?

The compensation victims or their families can expect to receive in a personal injury, catastrophic injury, or wrongful death case depends on the facts. Every situation is different, and several factors will affect the settlement amount, such as the severity of the injuries and the extent of medical care required.

Additionally, California is a comparative negligence state. That means a victim’s award will be affected by their percentage of fault for the accident (if any). In other words, if the financial recovery is $10,000, and the victim is found to be 15% responsible, their payout will be $8,500.

Therefore, if you believe you have a claim, speaking with an Oceanside attorney would be beneficial. They can evaluate your case, examine medical records, and review other relevant information to determine a fair compensation amount. Also, they can build a compelling case to counter any claims concerning the victim’s level of fault for the accident.

I am committed to holding at-fault parties liable for their negligence or reckless actions. Entrust your case to me, and I will work relentlessly on your behalf. I am prepared to pursue an optimal outcome for you.
