Oakland Personal Injury Lawyers

When you are injured in an accident that could have been prevented if another party had not acted in a negligent manner, you have the right to pursue monetary compensation for your medical bills and related damages through a personal injury claim. However, determining the true value of your losses and pursuing an injury claim on your own can be difficult, especially if you are still recovering from serious injuries. Let our Oakland personal injury lawyers assist you in seeking justice. We have helped dozens of injured people receive the compensation they need to move forward, and we welcome the opportunity to help you, too.

We are equipped to pursue compensation on behalf of a wide range of victims, such as those who suffered brain injuries, scars, and burns and individuals who were injured in collisions that resulted from texting and driving, just to name a few.

When a victim dies in an accident, their loved ones may be eligible to pursue compensation through a wrongful death claim. Our team works with survivors pursuing wrongful death claims as well.

Elements of a Successful Oakland Injury Claim

In your personal injury claim, you must demonstrate the following:

  • That another party had the duty to act in a certain way to prevent accidents;
  • That the other party breached their duty of care;
  • Because of the breach, an accident occurred; and
  • You suffered an injury as a result of the accident and are now facing specific financial losses like medical bills and a reduced earning capacity.

What constitutes negligence in a personal injury case will depend on the nature of the accident that occurred. In a car accident, for example, driving drunk and speeding are acts of negligence. 

Working with Skilled Oakland Personal Injury Lawyers

The types of damages you may seek through a personal injury claim include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering damages

Your lawyer’s job is to work on your behalf to secure an appropriate compensation settlement for your damages. They do this by negotiating with the negligent party’s insurance provider and obtaining and using evidence to demonstrate the points listed above. This evidence may include photographs from the accident scene and copies of your medical bills.

With most personal injury cases, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the injury. There are a few notable exceptions to this, such as when the injury was not known or discovered until later. However, it is always in your best interest to act quickly and consult with Oakland personal injury lawyers, who can begin gathering evidence and speaking to witnesses right away if you intend to seek compensation.
