San Francisco Personal Injury Attorney

Being injured by someone else’s negligence places you in a very challenging position. You’re facing physical, financial, and emotional losses, and you might not have a clue about how to protect your legal rights throughout the difficult legal process ahead. Fortunately, an experienced San Francisco personal injury attorney can help. 

Personal Injury Claims

Your personal injury claim will be unique to the circumstances involved, and while these claims come in a wide variety of forms, some of the most common include:

  • Traffic accidents such as car, truck, bus, motorcycle, scooter, and pedestrian accidents
  • Rideshare accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Boat accidents
  • Traffic accidents caused by highway design defects

The Losses You Experience

You’ve been injured by the negligence of another person or entity, and the road forward toward healing is likely to be long and difficult. The losses (or legal damages) you experience as a result of the other party’s negligence can include all the following important components:

  • Medical expenses that may need to address future healthcare needs and ongoing concerns
  • Lost wages that can include a precipitous drop in your earning potential
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering that can be especially challenging to overcome

This is a primary element of your personal injury claim, and it’s critical that each category be addressed clearly and completely. 

Personal Injury Claims Are Based on Negligence

Personal injury claims are based on negligence, and to successfully bring a personal injury claim against the party who leaves you injured, you must be able to demonstrate that all of the following are true:

  • The other party had a responsibility related to your safety. For example, motorists have a responsibility to the safety of everyone else on the road, and the law refers to this responsibility as a duty of care
  • The other party breached this duty of care, which means he or she failed to uphold his or her responsibility to your safety. A driver who speeds, is impaired, is distracted, drives aggressively, or is drowsy is negligent in his or her responsibility and, therefore, breaches the duty of care owed. 
  • This breached duty of care caused the accident that led to the personal injury claim in question. For example, if a driver who falls asleep at the wheel plows into you at a stop sign, his or her negligence amounts to a breached responsibility. 
  • You suffered losses that are covered by personal injury law (as discussed above). 

Personal injury law is complex, but these claims provide an opportunity to recoup your losses and aid your recovery.
