California Personal Injury Law
California personal injury attorneys provide legal representation to clients throughout the state who believe they have suffered either physical or psychological harm from the actions of an individual, company or government entity. Generally speaking, intentional harm doesn’t need to be proven, as long as it is obvious that the accident was a result of negligence.
Types of Claims Handled by California Personal Injury Attorneys
To win a case of negligence, an attorney must prove that the damages were a direct result of the defendant’s actions. It must also be proven that the defendant failed to exercise reasonable caution, such as by driving too fast or by running a red light. Along with motor-vehicle claims, law firms often prosecute negligence cases in medical-malpractice suits and slip-and-fall accidents.
Intentional torts, on the other hand, represent claims that include fraud, assault and battery and defamation of character cases. In both of these examples, the defendant intentionally brought harm to the victim–either through physical brutality or by ruining his reputation.
Attorneys and law firms that specialize in California personal injury claims are best equipped to fight these cases because of their expertise in tort law. Like all attorneys, they have an obligation to each client to learn about a claim, research the case fully and determine whether a strong case can be built against the defendant. Howard C.
