Daly City Personal Injury Attorneys

Daly City Personal Injury Attorneys

We owe one another a considerable duty of care in a variety of situations – including when we get behind the wheel of a car – and any breach of this duty (or negligence) can lead to dangerous, injury-causing accidents. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, don’t wait to reach out to an experienced Daly City personal injury attorney. 

Common Personal Injury Claims

Many kinds of accidents that are caused by the negligence of someone else can lead to personal injury claims, but some of the most common include traffic accidents such as the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Scooter accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Traffic accidents that are caused by faultily designed highways
  • Rideshare accidents, such as Uber and Lyft

Additionally, train accidents and boating accidents generate a considerable number of personal injury claims. 

The Parts of Your Personal Injury Claim

In order to bring a successful personal injury claim in California, you will need to demonstrate that four separate elements are present, including:

  • The at-fault party in your case – such as the other driver – owed you a duty of care. As motorists, we all owe one another a serious duty of care, so this element is generally set in claims involving traffic accidents. 
  • Negligence on the part of the at-fault party in your case breached the duty of care he or she owed you. A driver who is distracted by his or her phone, for example, breaches the duty of care he or she owes others on the road. 
  • The at-fault party’s negligence caused the accident that left you injured (this is called having standing to file a lawsuit). For example, if that distracted motorist failed to react safely to a change in the flow of traffic and, as a result, hit your vehicle, his or her negligence is the cause of the resulting accident. 
  • You suffered losses – or legal damages – as a result of the accident in question. 

Your Losses

The losses you can address in your personal injury claim in the State of California include:

  • Medical Expenses – Your medical costs can range from emergency care to surgery, hospital stays, rehabilitation, and far beyond. If your injuries are serious, you may be looking at the need for ongoing medical attention. 
  • Lost Income – While you heal from the injuries you’ve sustained, you may experience a considerable loss in earnings on the job that can extend to a loss in earning potential.
  • Pain and Suffering – The physical and emotional pain and suffering you endure as a result of the injury-causing accident in question can be considerable and can be especially challenging to overcome.
