Accidents & Injuries Caused by Negligence
Accidents and injuries happen, and unfortunately, they are far too often due to an act of negligence. Careless, distracted, or intoxicated drivers, negligent healthcare providers, and manufacturers of dangerous drugs and products cause injuries and untold suffering to unsuspecting people on a daily basis.
According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), 32,675 people were killed and an estimated 2.3 million were injured in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. in 2014. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports 31 million emergency room visits and 130,557 deaths a year from unintentional injuries in the U.S. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., exceeded only by cancer and heart disease.
Our Mission is Achieving Justice For Personal Injury Victims
Although we cannot always control other peoples’ actions, we can hold them accountable through the civil justice system for the harm their actions cause. Individuals who have suffered serious personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence have the right to seek compensation in a claim for damages.
Proving a Personal Injury Claim in California
To establish a claim for personal injury and recover compensation, certain elements must be proved by the injured party:
- The responsible party had a duty to the victim and failed in that duty;
- The responsible party’s negligence caused the victim’s injuries; and
- The victim suffered damages.
A physician, for example, has a duty to perform at an acceptable standard of care in providing healthcare services to a patient. When a negligent doctor commits preventable medical errors, performing outside of that standard of care, and the patient suffers serious injuries with long-term health consequences as a result, the patient may have a valid medical malpractice claim for damages.
Damages in California Personal Injury Claims
The damages you will be able to claim in a personal injury lawsuit depend on the losses you have suffered. Our Jacksonville personal injury lawyers have the knowledge and resources to assess the full extent of your injuries. Depending on the circumstances in your case, you may be able to recover:
- Economic damages, including past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earnings, and property damage;
- Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of capacity for enjoyment of life, loss of consortium (marital relations), and mental anguish; and
- Punitive damages (designed to punish the responsible party for misconduct and deter similar conduct in the future) in certain cases, such as drunk driving and texting-related accidents.
