Accident Victims Should Consult a Personal Injury Attorney

Thousands of people every day suffer personal injuries, and many of these injuries occur in accidents. However, these don’t need to be traffic accidents – personal injuries can happen in many different kinds of incidents, many of which are the fault of others. Such injuries can occur as a result of: 

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Accidents involving hazardous materials, whether at home, at work, or elsewhere
  • Product liability accidents
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Traffic accidents
  • Intentional tort injuries, such as assault

Obviously, personal injuries can occur in any number of ways, not all of them accidental. Because of the variety of potential causes of personal injuries, recovering damages for those injuries can become quite complex, as circumstances can be quite different, and the laws involved are not necessarily identical from case to case. It is wise to consult with an Alameda personal injury attorney if you have suffered a personal injury. The legal team of Bogaards Law is ready to help.

Personal Injury Claims Can Be Complicated

Because of the wide variety of ways personal injuries can happen, you should consider hiring an attorney to help you with your claim. While insurance covers many personal injuries – either insurance for the injured party or for the party responsible for the injury – it is all too common for the person you believe to be responsible for your injury to deny responsibility, leading to the possibility of a legal dispute over who is responsible for your damages. 

Resolving disputes over liability is a complex matter, and you should have the help of the right lawyer. In any personal injury case, you have to show

  • That the person responsible for your injury owed you a duty of care, meaning they had to exercise some level of caution to avoid injuring you,
  • That the person responsible breached that duty through at least negligence – meaning failing to exercise the ordinary level of care expected of a reasonable person
  • That the responsible person’s negligence was the cause or a substantial cause of your injury.

Insurance claims can be challenging, but our attorneys know how to stand up to insurance companies and negotiate for a settlement that covers your losses. While many personal injury cases are settled out of court, it is possible you might have to sue to get compensation for your injuries. Litigation involves complex procedures and requirements, which the right lawyer will know how to follow. Our legal team will do whatever necessary to seek the compensation you deserve for your medical bills and other losses.
