Personal Injury Firm Serving the South Bay Region

Grounds for Personal Injury Claims in the South Bay

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in an accident, you may have grounds to file a claim for financial compensation. The key question to ask is whether the accident was caused by another party. Provided that the other person is at fault for causing the accident, you should not be forced to pay the price. The courts in the South Bay and throughout the rest of California recognize the right of a plaintiff to sue for accidents caused by another person's negligence. Proving your case depends on being able to demonstrate that the defendant was to blame for causing the accident through some type of careless, reckless or otherwise negligent actions or omissions. If you believe that you may have grounds to file a claim, contact us now at Layfield & Wallace, APC for a free case evaluation with a South Bay personal injury lawyer from our team!

Under California state law, a dog owner can very often be held legally accountable for injuries or death caused when the animal attacks another person. This makes it possible for you to sue for monetary damages after you or your child has been bitten. Dogs may be man's best friend, but they are also potentially vicious and dangerous animals, and owners have a responsibility to keep others safe.

When your insurance company sold you a policy, it entered into a contract with you under which it is required to pay you according to the scope of your coverage. The insurance company must act in good faith towards you. Intentional delays, reduction of the value of your claim or wrongful denial of coverage may all provide you with grounds to file an insurance bad faith claim.

When a property owner learns of conditions on the premises which may cause injury or death to a guest or customer, he or she has a legal duty to take reasonable precaution to handle the problem, such as by posting a warning sign, erecting a fence or by removing the hazard. Failure to do so exposes the owner to legal action under the principle of premises liability.

Virtually all businesses in California are required by state law to carry workers' compensation insurance in order to cover their employees in the event of an accident on the job. When you file a workers' compensation claim, you waive your right to sue your employer, but on the other hand you are entitled to benefits without the necessity of proving that your employer was to blame for causing your accident.

How much is your South Bay personal injury claim worth?

There is no way to predict with accuracy how much you will receive if you win your case in an out-of-court settlement or jury verdict, but there are certain guidelines we can use to estimate the value of your case. The statement of damages form that is provided by the California Judicial Branch allows for a plaintiff to claim several different types of economic and noneconomic damages. To begin with, your claim can include a demand for compensation for your loss of earnings and loss of future earning capacity. If you are suing for wrongful death, you can also claim damages for the loss of future contributions, the loss of personal service, advice or training and for funeral expenses.

In addition, you can claim compensation for the cost of medical treatment which you have received, as well as for any future medical expenses which you are likely to incur in relation to your injury. Beyond economic damages, you can also claim compensation for your pain, suffering, inconvenience, emotional distress and loss of consortium, while in a wrongful death action your claim can include your loss of society and companionship. No amount of money will ever be able to fully replace what you have lost, but you can at least recover the money you need to offset the economic burden of your accident and to make it easier for you to move on in life. Contact us now for a free consultation so that we can review your case and determine how much you are due to receive in compensation!
