Determining Liability After an Accident

To succeed in a personal injury claim in California, you must prove that someone else was negligent or at fault for causing your injury. Negligence is the failure to act with reasonable care under the circumstances. To establish negligence, you need to prove four elements:

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care;
  • The defendant breached that duty by acting or failing to act in a certain way;
  • The defendant’s breach caused your injury and
  • You suffered damages as a result of your injury.

Different standards of care and liability rules may apply depending on the type and cause of your injury. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, you must show that the other driver violated a traffic law or drove unsafely. If a defective product injures you, you may hold the manufacturer or seller liable without proving negligence under strict liability. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you need to show that the property owner knew or should have known about a dangerous condition and failed to fix it or warn you about it.

To prove these elements, you must gather and present evidence supporting your claim. Some of the most valuable types of evidence when it comes to personal injury claims are as follows:

  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Photographs and videos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage
  • Witness statements
  • Expert opinions from doctors, accident reconstructionists, and others
  • Receipts, bills, pay stubs, and other documents that help illustrate the financial damages you have incurred as a result of your accident

Recovering Compensation

There are two main types of damages in personal injury cases: economic (“special”) damages and non-economic (“general”) damages. Economic damages can include the cost of medical treatment, lost past and future wages, lost earning capacity, and property damage. Non-economic damages deal with things that are harder to quantify, albeit very real, such as pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, emotional trauma, and more.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in California

That said, the statute of limitations for your specific case can vary, so you must consult with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys. For example, if a person is injured on or by property owned by the government or a municipality, you will likely only have six months from your accident to file a Notice of Claim.

Regardless of how your accident occurred, however, you should make it a point to retain the services of a team of seasoned Orange County personal injury lawyers as soon after your accident as possible. California Personal Injury Law Firm, APC, stands ready to fight for you.
