Accidents happen on the open road, but they shouldn’t cost you a lifetime of suffering especially if the other party acted negligently. If you believe you’ve been part of a car or motorcycle accident where the other party did not uphold their appropriate responsibility, you may have a personal injury claim.

There’s a high probability that many trucking accidents result in greater damage and injury. Because of the nature of a truck driver’s occupation and task, other companies may be responsible for negligence depending on the circumstance — from the employer, the truck manufacturer, or possibly the company of the truck’s lease.

The freelance economy comes with its own set of liabilities and responsibilities. But who’s liable and who’s insurance applies to the given situation can get convoluted. Varying coverage amount, liabilities, and responsibility can make personal injury claims involving ride shares difficult to define or determine liability.

The rules of the road exist for the safety and well-being of all, including automobiles big and small and pedestrians. Whether you’re the driver or the pedestrian involved in a pedestrian accident, you may have a potential personal injury claim depending on who is at fault, who is liable, and who is financially responsible.

Even a recreational boating excursion with family and friends can result in injury, loss of income, or death. In general, the person operating the boat is primarily responsible to maneuver the vessel safely. However, depending on liability, multiple individuals may be held at fault, dividing the responsibility and liability.

Businesses may be held liable for accidents or injuries that occur on business property or are caused by negligence for customers and employees. This includes interior incidents in retail stores and restaurants as well as parking lots and sidewalks outside businesses.

Defective products may cause just as much as another type of personal injury. In California, product liability is broken into four types: Negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and consumer protection claims. Each type is related to a specific product defect or description and liability claim to substantiate a product liability case.

Similar to other personal injury claims, a wrongful death claim must show that the individual at fault behaved negligently or recklessly, directly causing the death of the deceased. Wrongful death claims may involve medical offices, other persons, or auto accidents.

Distinct from workers’ compensation claim, a personal injury claim involving a workplace injury implies the fault of another. It seeks compensation for more damages, like lost wages and loss of future earnings than a workers compensation claim covers.

According to California state law (CIV) 3342, dog owners are responsible for dog bites or attacks under strict liability, regardless of previous viciousness or the dog owner’s knowledge of previous incidents.
