Temecula Personal Injury and Car Accident Attorney

A Temecula personal injury attorney can help you when you have been injured in an accident. When you are hurt in a car accident, in a slip and fall, or as a result of a dog bite, California law often holds someone legally responsible for your injuries. For example, in the case of a dog bite injury, the dog’s owner may be responsible.

Personal injury law, which is a type of tort law, is designed to protect people who are hurt by the careless or intentional actions of others. This branch of law allows for the person who is injured to recover money damages as compensation for the injuries.

What Is a Personal Injury Case and What Can it Accomplish?

A Temecula personal injury attorney can help you in a personal injury case. This can involve filing a lawsuit, negotiating a settlement, investigating who may be responsible for your injuries, and many other types of work. In some cases, it can even involve having a trial in front of a jury. In order to establish your claim, you and your attorney will have to show that another person or company is responsible for your injuries. It also requires showing that you suffered some damage as a result of the other person’s irresponsible actions. Damages can include things like:

  • Physical injury;
  • Lost earnings (the money you lose out on either because you cannot do your job for some period of time);
  • Impairment of future earnings (the money you will miss out on because your injury will prevent you from doing work you otherwise would have done);
  • Lifestyle changes (compensation for permanent or long-term changes in your lifestyle);
  • Loss of support to loved ones;
  • Property damage;
  • Past, present and future medical care and expenses related to the injury.
