What Kinds of Accidents May Be Grounds for a Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury law covers all types of harm – physical, emotional or psychological – that a person suffers due to an accident or negligent acts of another. When the victim decides to take legal action to recover compensation for this harm, that is called a personal injury claim. Some common reasons for injury claims include:

  • Auto Accidents. Car accidents often result from driver negligence, although vehicle defects and poorly designed or maintained roadways may also be to blame. If you sustain an injury in a crash, then you may be able to file a car accident claim.
  • Bicycle Accidents. A cycling accident may cause severe injuries or wrongful death, especially if a negligent motorist is to blame.
  • Bus Accidents. If you are hurt as a passenger in a bus accident caused by another car, then you may file a claim against the at-fault motorist. However, if the bus driver is to blame, then you may bring a claim against the agency responsible for the bus. These kinds of claims are often more difficult and are subject to different laws.
  • Motorcycle Accident. Motorcyclists often sustain severe injuries in crashes, even when wearing helmets. Depending on the circumstances you may be able to file a claim to recover compensation.
  • Truck Accidents. Truck accidents usually cause much more severe and widespread injury than other crashes. Usually, the commercial trucking company is liable for these accidents.
  • Dog Bites. You may be able to hold a pet owner accountable for a dog bite or other animal attack.
  • Serious Injuries. Catastrophic personal injuries, like brain and spinal cord damage, may result from defective products, medical malpractice and other negligence. Claims for these injuries are complex and require an experienced personal injury attorney.

What Can a Riverside Personal Injury Attorney Do to Help?

After an accident, many people believe that it will save time and money if they handle their personal injury claim alone. Insurance adjusters may even advise you that it is not in your best interests to involve an attorney. However, insurance companies have vast resources at their disposal and work with legal teams that are familiar with all aspects of the law as it applies to accident cases. You deserve the same advantage. A Riverside personal injury attorney can:

  • Gather evidence. An attorney can investigate the accident scene and gather relevant evidence, even if you are still in the hospital. Additionally, a lawyer can take steps to prevent other involved parties from destroying or altering evidence.
  • Interview witnesses. Your lawyer can speak to witnesses to get the full account of what happened. Often, injury victims do not fully understand the circumstances the led to an accident, and therefore cannot tell who is to blame.
  • Identify all liable parties. Attorneys can explore all possible accident causes to find all contributing parties. This may allow you to file multiple claims, maximizing your compensation.
  • File the proper paperwork. While you focus on your health, your attorney can file all necessary paperwork for you.
  • Fight for your best interests. Unlike insurance adjusters, a personal injury attorney has your best interests at heart, so you can be confident that you will get a fair settlement or verdict.
  • Advise you on settlement offers. A lawyer can advise you on whether a settlement offer is reasonable, given the circumstances.
  • Take your case to trial, if necessary. If the insurance company does not make you a fair offer, then an attorney can help you file a lawsuit.
