Understanding Personal Injury Law
A personal injury lawsuit is a lawsuit filed against a person or party responsible for your injuries. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, you can file a lawsuit against the other driver who caused the accident. If you were injured at a grocery store in a slip-and-fall accident, you can file a lawsuit against the grocery store.
Personal injury lawsuits are civil lawsuits, which means that they are heard by a judge or jury in a civil court. Typically, personal injury lawsuits are based in tort law. A tort is a civil wrong that entitles a victim to receive money damages. There are many different kinds of torts, including negligence, assault, battery, and false imprisonment.
Negligence and Personal Injury Suits
The law holds people, companies, and government entities responsible for their negligence. Negligence is broadly defined as a failure to act reasonably toward someone to whom a duty of care is owed. For example, a physician has a duty to exercise a high standard of care to all of his or her patients. A land owner has a duty to keep his premises safe for visitors.
In a case that includes a claim for negligence, a court that rules in favor of the victim (or “plaintiff”) will award him or her damages to compensate for injuries and other losses. A plaintiff who wins a negligence case may be able to recover the costs of his or her past medical bills and ongoing medical treatment, compensation for missed work, and damages for pain and suffering.
What to Do After an Accident
A personal injury lawyer can help you understand your options following a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, workplace accident, or slip-and-fall accident. If you have been involved in an accident, take these steps to guarantee your safety and protect your rights:
- GET TO SAFETY. If you have been involved in a car accident, motorcycle accident, or truck accident, get to safety as quickly as possible. The busy streets and highways in San Diego can create additional hazards for accident victims. Do not attempt to move your vehicle out of traffic without assistance. Use your best judgment. If it would be safer to wait until emergency responders to arrive, remain in place.
- CALL THE POLICE. After an accident of any kind, call 911 right away. The San Diego Police Department will dispatch emergency responders to the scene of the accident. If you or anyone else involved in the accident requires medical assistance, be sure to let the 911 dispatcher know. An ambulance will be sent to the scene, and paramedics will be available to treat your injuries. If your injuries are serious, you may need to be transported to a San Diego hospital.
- GATHER INFORMATION. If you are able to, gather as much information as possible at the scene of the accident. Take down the names and contact information of any witnesses. Ask them to write down a statement about what they saw happened. If you have a camera available, take pictures of the accident scene. Write down the time the accident occurred and note any other important information.
- SEEK MEDICAL TREATMENT. If you were injured, seek medical treatment promptly. Certain types of injuries get worse if not treated immediately.
- CONTACT AN ATTORNEY. After an accident, you should contact a lawyer to discuss your rights. Do not speak directly with insurance company representatives. Insurance company representatives may use your statements against you, and will try to settle your case for as little money as possible. An attorney can help you understand whether filing a lawsuit is the right decision for you.
