Personal Injury Defined

California law views personal injury very broadly. A personal injury cause of action is created whenever a party’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct causes damage to someone else. A victim’s injuries do not have to be physical I order to bring a claim for compensation. Infliction of physical, emotional, or even financial injuries on a victim satisfy the definition of a California personal injury and may properly give rise to a civil lawsuit and a damage award if liability is established.

How Do Personal Injuries Commonly Occur?

The inclusive view of personal injuries in California means that almost any scenario imaginable can result in injury and a claim for compensation. Even though the sky is the limit when picturing how personal injuries happen, some situations give rise to injuries more often than most. Personal injuries commonly arise from:

In North Hollywood, it’s not a stretch to see how these types of personal injury claims could potentially arise all over the city. The busy 5, 134, and Hollywood freeways that box in the city pose risks for car, truck, and motorcycle accidents every time someone braves these dangerous roads. Distracted and unsafe driving behaviors happen far too often, causing disasters to happen every day. At the same time, city streets like Vineland and Coldwater Canyon Avenues pose the same risks not only for motorists but pedestrians and bicyclists as well. Recently, a young motorcyclist lost his life when a car turned left in front of him onto Magnolia Boulevard from Denny Avenue and he was unable to stop before he collided with the truck. 

Winning and Recovering Damages in a Personal Injury Case

Though personal injuries occur every day, for someone injured in these accidents the consequences are anything but routine. Severe accidents can result in temporary or permanent inability to return to work, long-term or permanent injuries, and even require a lifetime of ongoing medical care and impact a victim’s ability to perform daily activities on their own.

Negligence and Liability

Noting the destructive consequences that a victim’s injuries can have on their life, courts may award damages if you can establish a defendant’s negligence caused you harm. To prove negligence and hold a party liable for your damages, you must show the defendant breached a legal duty of care they owed to you and harmed you by doing so.


Once negligence is established and a defendant is liable for your injuries, you may be eligible to recover compensatory damages to make you whole for injuries you can prove. Every victim’s injuries are different, so depending on the facts of your case courts may make an award for physical, financial, and emotional harms like:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Hospital bills
  • Funeral costs or burial expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages

In some cases a victim may be entitled to additional damages, but these damages require satisfying additional burdens of proof and are best discussed with an experienced personal injury attorney.
