Everything you do in Murrieta carries some degree of risk for personal injury. You or someone you know have likely sustained injuries in a car accident. You may have fallen while attending an event downtown or tripped over an object obstructing a grocery store aisle. While these incidents are usually accidental, they often happen when someone commits a negligent act or omission. If a negligent party has injured you, our Murrieta personal injury lawyer can determine if they owe you compensation under California Civil Code.
Accidents don’t just happen. Car crashes occur when drivers operate their vehicles without considering other motorists’ safety. If you fall on a sidewalk or in a retail store, it’s often due to negligent maintenance or inadequate repairs. When an accident forces you to pay for medical care and you lose income due to your injuries, your financial losses grow each day. When you work with our lawyers, we protect your legal rights and seek the compensation you deserve.
Types of Cases Our Murrieta Personal Injury Lawyers Handle
When you sustain a personal injury, it usually takes you by surprise. Accidental injuries often occur while you’re involved in ordinary activities, but the consequences can be life-changing.
The most recent annual crash data from the California Office of Traffic Safety shows that 1,759 people sustain injuries or fatal trauma in Riverside County vehicle accidents. Of those victims, 361 were involved in accidents in Murrieta.
Drivers cause accidents when they speed, drive distracted, or get behind the wheel while alcohol-impaired. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration considers these and other actions risky driving behaviors. They are often a contributing factor when serious vehicle crashes occur. Our law firm resolves accidents involving all classes of vehicles.
- Vehicle Accidents
- Commercial vehicles
- Semi-trucks and tractor-trailer rigs
- Buses and vans
- Bicycles, E-Bikes, and E-Scooters
- Lyft and Uber rideshare vehicles
- Motorcycles and motor scooters
- Pedestrians-vehicle accidents
When we handle your accident claim, our investigator obtains police reports, witness statements, site photos, and more. When appropriate, we work with accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to prove your case against a negligent driver.
Premises Liability Incidents
People often sustain injuries when a business or homeowner fails to maintain or repair their property. People may suffer from slip-and-falls due to unresolved deterioration, poorly-maintained structures, inadequate illumination, and uneven surfaces. Unsuspecting victims sustain injuries in parking lots, on walkways, on staircases, and when attacked by unrestrained dogs. Our law firm handles a variety of premises liability cases for our injured clients.
- Construction accidents
- Electrical injuries
- Dog attacks
When an owner fails to warn potential visitors about hazards on the property, they may also be legally liable for any resulting injuries. If you sustain an injury in any type of accident on someone else’s property, our personal injury lawyers can help determine what your options are.
Construction sites bring together multiple crews conducting simultaneous operations. It’s easy to see why construction injuries occur so frequently. Based on recent Bureau of Labor Statistics annual data, 26,700 workers sustained injuries while working on California construction job sites. Accidents may include:
- Falls from elevated surfaces
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents
- Exposure to harmful substances
- Electrocution incidents
- Contact with construction materials and equipment
If you sustain an injury while working on a California construction site, your employer owes workers’ compensation benefits. You may also have a legal right to recover damages from a negligent third party under California Welfare and Institutions Code, Article 3.5, Third Party Liability §14124.70 – 14124.94. Our personal injury attorneys can determine if you have a right to file a third-party negligence claim.
Product Liability Incidents
You may have a valid product liability claim if you sustained an injury due to a product you purchased or used. Product designers, manufacturers, packaging designers, and other parties share responsibility for creating and marketing defective products. Manufacturers also become responsible when they fail to add adequate safety warnings or when a product isn’t fit for its intended use.
At Kash Legal, our Murrieta personal injury attorneys have experience with a wide range of product liability cases. If you sustain an injury because of a defective product, discuss your situation with our personal injury attorneys. We will listen to your story and determine if we can help you.
Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle
Accidents occur everywhere. Depending on the type of accident, the injuries they cause vary significantly. Our law firm has worked with many injured victims and their families. Consequently, we have reviewed and evaluated many types of injuries.
Traumatic or anoxic brain injury
Spinal cord trauma and paralysis
Sprains and strains
Dog bite wounds
Back, neck, and disc injuries
Knee injuries: dislocations, fractures, torn ligaments, tendons, and muscles
Skull and facial fractures
Fire and chemical burns
Internal organ damage
We understand that your injury’s settlement value includes factors beyond its diagnosis and prognosis. When we handle your personal injury claim, we listen to you and learn how your injuries affect your life. We obtain your medical records and research recent court cases and settlements to determine current injury values.
Types of Damages You Can Recover in Murrieta
When we negotiate a personal injury claim, we seek economic damages and general damages. If we resolve your case at trial, we sometimes seek exemplary damages, also known as punitive damages.
The economic damage portion of a settlement considers current and future expenses for treatment and recovery.
Reduced earning capacity
Medical and hospitalization costs
Physician’s and surgeon’s costs
Household and nursing assistance
Funeral and burial expenses
These damages have receipts, so they are easy to calculate for lawyers and insurance companies. Often the intial exams your doctor takes such as MRIs and CT scans help build a strong case.
General damages include compensation for emotional and psychological injuries and other non-economic damages. These often include:
Pain and suffering
Loss of consortium
Scars and disfigurement
Loss of bodily functions
These damages are much more difficult to calculate, and your lawyer will be able to estimate the compensation you may be able to receive based on recent personal injury claims similar to yours.
In California, a jury may award exemplary damages. A plaintiff’s evidence must show that the defendant acted out of malice, oppression, or fraud when they caused an injury. These are also known as punitive damages.
Proving Your Case Against a Negligent Party
When someone else causes your injuries, you must prove that they are responsible. When our legal team investigates your claim, we look for evidence that proves negligence based on a simple theory.
Duty Owed: Did the person or business have a duty to prevent your injuries?
Duty Breached: Did they fail to meet their duty to you?
Proximate Cause: Was your accident a direct result of their breach?
Damages: Did the accident cause injuries or costs that require compensation?
When we investigate vehicle accidents, premises liability incidents, and other negligence claims, we produce evidence that addresses these issues.
It’s also important to note that certain entities and businesses often owe a higher degree of care, for instance medical professionals and common carriers. Both perform necessary services for the public. However, because of their responsibility to the public they are held to a higher legal duty to prevent harming people.
