Who is liable for your injuries?

Our Los Angeles attorneys will help you determine who is liable for your injuries. We will evaluate the accident scene, evidence and facts of the case to establish liability and bring a lawsuit against the responsible individuals or entities.

However, it’s important to note that simply sustaining an injury doesn’t necessarily mean you have a personal injury case. For an individual to be held liable for your injury, the following must be true:

  • The individual or entity must have a “duty of care” to protect against injuries
  • The liable party must have behaved in a negligent way to breach that duty
  • If not for the breach, the injury would not have occurred
  • The breach of duty is what caused the injury
  • You suffered an injury and damages

Once we’ve established liability, we will determine whether your accident was caused accidentally, deliberately or by negligent behavior. These nuances are important, because it affects responsibility and the damages you’re able to pursue. However, it’s important to note that in most cases, the injury occurs due to another individual’s negligence.

Have you been injured? Here’s what to do next.

After a personal injury, your first priority is to get medical attention if needed. However, do not discuss the specifics of the accident or your injury with any other party (other than the medical professional administering care) until you’ve spoken to an attorney. Obtain copies of medical and police reports, photographs, witness information and other documentation of the accident scene. Also, do not sign anything with your insurance company until you’ve consulted with a lawyer.

From there, you will need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the specifics of your case. Time is of the essence, because in California you only have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim, and six months if the claim is against a government agency. You cannot miss these deadlines if you hope to recover damages.
