Alameda Personal Injury Lawyers

If you’ve been injured because of an entity’s negligence (such as a business’s) or because of another person’s negligence, it can put you in a very difficult position. Not only do you face medical bills that seem to just keep coming, but you could also be off the job for a considerable amount of time. Further, you may have no idea how best to proceed – or where to even start. The most important step you can take in the journey toward your recovery is calling an experienced Alameda personal injury lawyer today. 

Common Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases can come in almost limitless forms, but some of the most common include:

  • Traffic accidents, such as car, truck, bike, bus, cable car, motorcycle, scooter, pedestrian, Uber and Lyft, train, and boat
  • Accidents caused by faulty highway design
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Injuries caused by dangerous drugs
  • Injuries caused by dangerous consumer products
  • Dog attacks
  • Wrongful death

Personal Injury Cases and Negligence

Personal injury cases are predicated on negligence, which means that someone who owes you a duty of care negligently fails to live up to this responsibility. For example, every motorist owes every other motorist and pedestrian in his or her midst the duty of care of driving safely (following the rules of the road), while commercial property owners/managers owe their invitees (customers, clients, patients, and/or patrons) the duty of care of maintaining their property in a reasonably safe condition that allows for safe passage. If someone else’s unreasonable negligence causes you to be injured, your legal recourse is to bring a personal injury case. 

The Damages You’ve Suffered

The damages associated with your personal injury claim can be extensive and can generally be categorized as follows:

  • Medical Expenses – Your medical costs are likely to begin with emergency care at the scene and to proceed with emergency transportation from the scene, surgery, hospitalization, treatment from doctors and specialists, prescription medications, physical therapy, rehabilitation, adaptive physical devices, and much more. 
  • Lost Wages – While you’re recovering from your injuries, you’ll very likely miss work and experience lost wages. If your injuries are quite serious, this can reverberate into your future and lead to ongoing diminished earnings.
  • Pain and Suffering – The emotional and physical pain and suffering associated with being injured as a result of someone else’s negligence can feel insurmountable and can be one of the most difficult damages to conquer. 

Obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled – in each of these categories that apply – is critical to your ability to fully heal.
