Bay Area Injury Law Firm

Being injured by someone else’s negligence can derail the life and career you’ve worked so hard to build, and the path forward is likely to be long and arduous. Because obtaining just compensation for your complete damages is likely fundamental to your ability to fully heal, it is in your best interest to consult with a well-established Bay Area injury law firm as soon after the injury-causing accident as possible.

Common Injury Claims

While every injury claim is unique to the circumstances involved, some of the most common claims fall into the following categories:

  • Traffic accidents of every kind
  • Accidents that lead to catastrophic injuries, including amputations, limb loss, paralysis, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Accidents that lead to broken bones, burns, cuts, or punctures

The magnitude of these kinds of claims generally leads to very serious damages.

Your Physical, Financial, and Emotional Damages

The damages you address in your injury claim can include all the following categories:

  • Property damage to your vehicle (in a traffic accident)
  • Your medical expenses, which are likely to be extensive and can include emergency care, surgery, follow-up care, pain management, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and more 
  • Your lost earnings, which can translate to a decrease in your earning potential 
  • Your pain and suffering, which can prove to be an exceptionally challenging obstacle

Ensuring that your complete damages are incorporated in your claim helps to ensure that your rights are well protected and that your rightful compensation is forthcoming. 

Negligence

Personal injury law is based on negligence. For example, driver negligence is often at the heart of traffic accidents, and your personal injury claim will seek compensation for the damages you suffer as a result of the other driver’s negligence. Another example is that commercial property owners and managers are responsible for maintaining the premises of their restaurants, stores, and other businesses in the reasonably safe condition that other property owners maintain in similar situations.  

Protecting Your Claim 

While your claim will not be exactly like anyone else’s, there are some basic steps that every accident victim should take in protection of their claim (as applicable and if you are able), including:

  • If it is a traffic accident, pull as far off the road as possible, call 911, and render whatever aid you can
  • Accept medical attention at the scene of the accident or seek medical attention as soon after the accident as possible
  • Follow your medical team’s instructions carefully
  • Consult with an experienced injury accident attorney as soon after the accident as you can
  • Refrain from posting about the accident on social media (the insurance company is looking for a reason to discount your claim, and it is more than happy to twist your words)
