Dangers are around every corner, and not all of them are preventable. If you’ve been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to pursue compensation from the at-fault party. When someone could have prevented your injury by taking proper precautions, he or she should answer for that mistake.
At Golden State Lawyers, APC, there’s a Bay Area personal injury lawyer ready to help you get full and fair compensation for your injuries. We’re passionate about helping injury victims, and we want to help you, too. With a strong claim, you’ll be able to recover your losses, including medical expenses, your missed wages, and much more.
Pursuing Fair and Full Compensation for Your Injuries
If you’ve been injured in any accident in the Bay Area in which someone’s negligence was a contributing factor, you likely have a case for personal injury compensation. A good way to be sure is to demonstrate that, if not for that person, company, or organization’s actions (or inaction), you wouldn’t have been injured.
California law states that everyone has a responsibility not to cause others harm—intentionally or recklessly. Those who are harmed can pursue compensation for the damages they have suffered, including monetary and non-monetary damages.
Monetary damages are financial losses caused by the accident, and non-monetary damages are those difficult-to-quantify hardships, such as the mental anguish the accident caused you.
