This is a legal process that helps people who have been injured due to someone else's negligence or wrongdoing. Personal injury allows you to seek compensation for your injury, often called “damages.”
When someone suffers a personal injury, they can experience physical, emotional, or financial harm. The harm can come from car accidents, slip-and-falls, medical malpractice, workplace accidents, or any other situation involving negligence or intentional harm.
In your injury claim, we can help you establish the key elements you must prove, including:
Duty of Care
The plaintiff (the person filing the claim) must prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care. For example, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles responsibly and safely. We can help establish this duty.
Breach of Duty
Our team can help you demonstrate that the defendant breached their duty of care. Doing so means proving that the defendant failed to act reasonably or responsibly, leading to the injury.
You must establish a direct link between the defendant's breach of duty and your injuries. We can help prove that the defendant's actions or negligence directly caused your harm.
The plaintiff must provide evidence of the damages they suffered as a result of the injury. We can help you collect this proof, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related expenses.
What Happens Next?
Through negotiation or litigation, we work to obtain fair compensation for you, covering your medical expenses, lost income, property damage, future medical care, and other losses the injury caused.
We Are Here to Help You Get the Compensation You Deserve
At IWV Legal, we can help with almost any personal injury case, including:
Premises liability refers to a property owner’s responsibility for any accidents or injuries that occur on their property. Property owners are legally obligated to keep their spaces safe and free from hazards. Failure to do so can result in a personal injury claim.
These claims typically arise when someone is injured because of dangerous conditions or hazards on another’s property.
Premises liability injuries range from slip-and-falls to being struck by falling objects.
To prove these claims, you must demonstrate that the property owner was negligent in maintaining the premises, and this negligence directly resulted in your injury.
If a car accident left you injured, and the other driver was at fault, personal injury claims are necessary for your protection. These claims help you recoup medical expenses, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering.
Car accident claims can become complicated quickly. They involve intense investigations of fault, including both drivers’ actions, witness statements, property assessments, and more. Our experienced team has the investigative skills necessary to prove fault in a car accident.
California law offers protection for people hurt in dog attacks. You can hold the dog’s owner responsible for the unruly animal’s behavior.
Working with our firm can help ensure that you receive the financial repayment you deserve. If you’ve been bitten, act quickly. There are time limits for filing dog bite claims in California.
Commercial Trucking Accidents
Commercial truck accidents can have devastating results. These wrecks often involve larger, heavier vehicles and often result in life-altering injuries or even death.
Our firm is prepared to investigate the cause of a trucking accident, working toward identifying negligent parties. We can negotiate with insurance companies and advocate for your rights in court. Our skilled attorneys will put in the long hours to secure your finances during this difficult time.
