Getting injured can be devastating. In addition to the unexpected medical bills, you may not be able to work, either temporarily or permanently, and your family may be struggling to afford necessities, such as housing and groceries.
The physical pain and inability to provide for your family and do things you used to enjoy might take a toll on your relationships with your loved ones. The financial strain also may be affecting your marriage, and the tension may be impacting your relationships with your children.
Knowing that the negligence of a business or another person is why you are suffering can make matters even worse. You may be feeling anger and frustration and may want to seek justice.

Motor vehicle crashes are some of the most common causes of personal injuries. If a collision with a car, truck, or motorcycle has left you with head trauma, whiplash, broken bones, or other types of injuries, our team may be able to help you seek compensation.
We can thoroughly investigate the accident’s cause to figure out who was liable. We can start by reviewing the police report and interviewing you, your passengers, and eyewitnesses.
If we find that the other driver acted negligently, for example, by speeding, running a red light or stop sign, failing to grant the right-of-way, using a cellphone while driving, or operating a vehicle while intoxicated, we can use that information to build a personal injury case.
Commercial Truck Accidents
If the driver who hit you was operating a commercial vehicle, things may be more complicated. If the driver’s actions are the cause of the crash, the company the driver works for may be held liable.
For example, an accident may occur after the driver loses control when the weight shifts on a truck that was not loaded improperly. In that case, the workers who loaded the truck might be found liable. They may or may not work for the same company that employs the truck driver. If the driver made a delivery and workers who unloaded the truck and loaded more cargo did so incorrectly, the business they work for may be found liable for the crash.
In another example, our investigation may find that the accident occurred because of a manufacturing defect in the truck. In that case, the company that produced the vehicle may be held liable.
If a part failed because a repair was performed incorrectly, the mechanic may be found responsible for the collision. If we learn that a part failed because of a manufacturing defect or a design flaw in the part itself, the company that produced or designed it may be found liable.

Slip and Fall Accidents
Property owners have a responsibility to take precautions to prevent accidents. If they fail to do so, someone may slip and fall and suffer serious injuries, such as a concussion or broken bones.
If you were hurt in another person’s home or at a business, the owner may be found liable. For example, if a stairway was poorly lit or did not have a handrail, if a floor was uneven or had a crack or a hole, or if snow or ice was not removed or treated with sand or salt, the property owner may be found negligent.
You may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical costs, lost income to date, loss of future earning potential, and pain and suffering.
Our team can speak with you and eyewitnesses about conditions that led to your slip and fall accident and review any surveillance footage that may have recorded the incident. If we find that the property owner was negligent, we may file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.

People visit doctors or go to the hospital expecting to receive proper treatment by well-trained and competent medical professionals. Unfortunately, in some cases, the care that patients receive brings additional harm to them.
If a doctor makes the wrong diagnosis or arrives at a correct diagnosis after a condition has reached an advanced stage, the patient may not receive appropriate and timely care and, as a result, experience serious complications.
If a patient is prescribed an inappropriate medication or given the wrong drug or the wrong dosage, that may lead to serious injuries, including organ failure. A surgical error, such as performing the wrong procedure, leaving a foreign object inside a patient’s body, or using the wrong amount of anesthesia, may have devastating results.
If you were a victim of medical malpractice, the financial costs may be staggering. You may have suffered debilitating injuries that could affect you for the rest of your life. You may be unable to work and may need to receive ongoing care. The emotional trauma of being harmed at the hands of someone who was supposed to help may be the most devastating part.
A San Diego personal injury lawyer may be able to help.
