Oakland Personal Injury Attorneys

No one is immune to injuries. Sometimes, they are curveballs in life that force individuals to step back from their normal activities, including going to work. They can also come with unexpected expenses causing some to worry about how they will pay their medical bills. People who suffer an injury at the hands of another negligent party shouldn’t have to deal with this curveball alone. They deserve compensation for their pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages. If you’ve been injured in an accident, we know you have many questions. Our Oakland personal injury attorneys are here to advocate for you and ensure the best possible outcome in your claim. 

What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is an injury that generally wouldn’t have occurred if it weren’t for someone else’s negligence. Sometimes the accidents caused by their negligence lead to catastrophic injuries, such as:

Catastrophic injuries are debilitating, disabling, life-altering, and even life-threatening. People who suffer them may no longer be able to work, take care of themselves, maintain relationships, or enjoy the activities they used to enjoy.

It’s not your job to determine how or why your accident happened. When you hire an attorney, they can conduct a thorough investigation to determine who is liable for your catastrophic injury. Once that determination is made, they can negotiate a full and fair settlement on your behalf. 

Elements of a Personal Injury Case

Since most personal injury claims arise from negligence, the injured party or their Oakland personal injury attorneys must prove the four elements of negligence. 

  • Duty: Someone owed the injured party a duty of care—for instance, a driver needs to obey the speed limit
  • Breach of Duty: The duty was violated—a driver didn’t obey the speed limit
  • Injury: The breach of duty led to the victim’s injuries—speeding caused an accident resulting in a TBI
  • Damages: The injured party suffered losses because of their injuries, which can include lost income, medical expenses, scarring or disfigurement, and pain and suffering

Personal injuries can arise from a number of situations; a slip and fall, a defective product, a dangerous drug, a pedestrian or bicycle accident, a work accident, a car or commercial truck crash, and many others.
