Personal injury claims can arise from a wide variety of accidents and situations. Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling many types of personal injury claims including:
We expect the medical devices used to treat our injuries or illnesses to be safe to use. We do not expect to be injured by a medical device. Unfortunately, defective medical devices injure and cause the death of thousands of people each year.
When a medical device injures a person, the person may be entitled to substantial compensation for damages. However, filing claims for defective medical devices can be complicated. You must prove that the device was defective and the defect resulted in your injury. Proving those requirements often requires extensive research and investigations. Medical experts, engineers, and other experts may be required to assist with the investigation.
When you purchase a product, you expect the product to perform as expected. You do not expect the product to harm you or a family member. However, that is what happens to thousands of individuals each year. Defective products can cause traumatic injuries and fatalities each year. A products liability claim can help you recover compensation for injuries and damage caused by a defective product.
Personal injury is used to define a group of legal cases involving injuries to an individual. In most cases, personal injury claims are based on negligence. However, other wrongdoing and errors can give rise to an injury claim. For example, carelessness that results in an injury to another person can result in a claim.
How do you know if you need a personal injury attorney? Have you been injured through no fault of your own? That is a good indication that you should consult a Sacramento personal injury attorney.
Even if you decide not to hire the attorney, it can be in your best interest to talk with an attorney to learn about your legal rights and your options. The insurance company for the at-fault party is not going to explain your legal rights. Your interest and the insurance company’s interest are opposing. You need someone in your corner who has your best interest at heart.
