A personal injury claim arises when the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts of a person, business, or government causes you to suffer physical or emotional harm. If the offending party is found liable, you are entitled to recover monetary damages for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and for pain and suffering. In rare circumstances, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through the legal process necessary to recover money that you may be owed.

Similarly, if a family member has died as a result of someone else’s wrongful conduct, then you and other surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death action and seek monetary compensation to help with the financial and emotional losses you have endured.

What Is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is an injury to your body or to your mind (including emotions). It is a separate category of injury from property damage.

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury. Typically, another driver’s careless or reckless action causes some type of injury to you. Another commonly referred to cause is the trip and fall accident.

As your attorney, Eric Gruber will conduct a thorough investigation into your claim. There are many types of evidence that will be needed for your case. For example, you may need: witness statements, police reports, photos, medical reports, insurance documents, and experts that will testify for you.

Eric has a large network of professionals that he can call upon to make sure your case has the best possible outcome.

What Is My Role In A Lawsuit or Claim?

If you are the one filing the lawsuit or claim, you are known as the plaintiff. You must be able to prove that the the other side is responsible for your injuries. You also must be able to show how much money you are owed due to those injuries.

Your other responsibilities will be to make crucial decisions about your case. You must first decide whether or not to file a lawsuit in court. Second, if you are offered a settlement by the other side, you must decide if you will accept it or not. During these times, you will need an experienced attorney to help you with these decisions.

If someone has filed a lawsuit against you, you are the defendant. You must decide whether or not you will fight the case or if you will try settle the matter out of court. Again, having the guidance of an attorney is invaluable.

What Is Negligence?

There are five parts to the definition of negligence:

  • The law requires that the person be reasonably careful.
  • The person failed to be careful.
  • The other person caused your injuries.
  • The other person knew or should have known that their actions could injure you.
  • You must have an injury or damage.

California is a comparative negligence state. This means that if you are also responsible for the accident, you can attempt to recover money based on the percentage of fault between you and the other party.
