Newport Beach Personal Injury Lawyers
- October 5, 2016
Were you injured because of someone else? If you were, you might have a personal injury case on your hands. Newport Beach Personal Injury Lawyers want to help you find the compensation you deserve to help deal with the injuries you sustained because someone else did not do their due diligence to keep you safe. At El Dabe Law Firm, we are experienced handling personal injury claims and lawsuits, and our attorneys work hard to help you obtain the compensation you deserve to cover your medical bills, your lost wage and even more.
What is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury is not always simple to define if you’re not familiar with the law. If you’re not sure whether or not you’ve got a case, you have to answer three questions. These three questions help you determine whether or not someone else is to blame for your injuries, and whether or not they owe you for the tragedy you’ve experienced.
1. Was the injury caused by someone else’s negligence? Negligence means someone else should have made the effort to prevent you from becoming injured. People are expected to act with reasonable care. Reasonable care means that a homeowner or business owner did all that they could do in their power to make their place of business or home as safe as possible so you are not at risk. For example, you slipped on ice on a sidewalk outside the door of a business. It might be careless on your part not watching where you are going, or it might be the business owner’s fault. Did he or she know that the ice was there because the gutters are full and leak standing water? If that’s the case and they didn’t clean the gutters or check for ice following a cold night, it’s their negligence that caused you to slip. They did not behave with reasonable care.
2. Was the injury intentional? You might be personally injured because someone else hurt you on purpose. Perhaps you turned down a date with a man. He was angry about it, and he decided to push you down a flight of stairs in a fit of rage. That’s intentional, and your injuries are his fault.
3. Was your injury caused by strict liability? This means your injury is caused by a person or company who manufactured an item that did not work properly. Perhaps your car had a recall for a break malfunction, and you took the car into the dealer to have your oil changed. The dealer is not legally allowed to let you leave without the recall fixed, but they did. That’s strict liability.
How Can Newport Beach Personal Injury Attorneys Help?
The law is complex. There are statutes of limitations that play into personal injury cases. You have to gather evidence. You have to find proof, and you have to talk to witnesses. There is a lot that goes into a personal injury case, and the attorneys at El Date Law Firm know each and every detail is imperative to winning your case.
Our attorneys know that you are entitled to receive compensation when someone else is to blame. Our knowledge makes it easier for us to win your case and set you down a path of financial freedom following the financial stress you felt watching the medical bills pile up after your accident.
What Compensation Am I Entitled To?
Any medical bill that you received as a result of your injuries is fair game. Whether you only had to see the doctor a handful of times following your injury or for years to overcome serious injury, you’re entitled to compensation to cover those costs. This accident was not your fault. You shouldn’t be responsible for the medical bills associated with your injuries.
Additionally, we know that the pain and suffering from personal injuries extends well beyond the scope of medical bills. If your injuries prevented you from going to work and making money, you have that to worry about. If your injury disabled you and you can no longer work, you’re entitled to compensation. Our attorneys work to make sure you don’t have to live with this kind of financial stress.
Personal injuries caused by someone else are not your fault. Let us help you find the compensation you need to recover. You simply don’t know whether or not your injuries might provide you lifelong pain and suffering or recovery efforts. Don’t let the opportunity to financially recover pass you by.
