Personal Injury Explained

Anyone who suffers injury because of a party’s negligent or intentional behavior is the victim of a personal injury and may be owed compensation by the wrongdoer. Injury is defined broadly and can be any type of physical, mental, or financial harm.

Common Personal Injury Scenarios

There are many scenarios where accidents can happen, and personal injury lawsuits may be properly filed in the aftermath. Personal injury lawsuits often result from:

Risk of Personal Injury in Ventura

Ventura is a growing town of over 110,000 northwest of Los Angeles and right next to the massive, congested 101 freeway. The bustling city streets, heavy commuter population into Los Angeles, and tourist attractions like the Ventura Botanical Gardens and beach all bring many people into and out of the city on a daily basis. This heavy traffic contributes to a large number of car accidents, personal injuries, and even deaths; earlier this year one person was killed and two injured on Pacific Coast Highway in a three vehicle rear-end collision near Deer Creek Road.

In addition, the large number of apartments and homes, office buildings, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, and retail establishments present an endless list of risks for patrons, workers, residents, and visitors alike to suffer injury in an accident. The city also requires a large amount of construction to build new structures and restore or renovate older buildings, so high-risk construction sites are a fixture in town. All it takes it a moment of negligence by individual, a worker on the job, a landlord or property owner, a motorist, or even a government agency for an accident, injury, or even death to occur.

Establishing Liability for Your Injuries

Personal injury victims usually file a lawsuit claiming against the alleged wrongdoer claiming they are owed compensation for injuries caused by the defendant’s negligence. If you can prove negligence, the defendant is usually liable for damages. Negligence is established if it’s proven that:

  • The defendant owed you a legal duty of care
  • They breached that duty through an action or a failure to act
  • The breach caused you injury

Negligence can also be proven if the defendant caused their injury while breaking any law, rule, or regulation designed to promote safety. This includes traffic laws such as speed limits or leash laws designed to prevent dog bites.

What if I am at Partially At-Fault for the Accident?

Even if you are partially responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, you may still be entitled to recover partial compensation under the theory of comparative negligence. In California, the court hearing your case will review the facts and assign everyone involved a percentage of fault based on their level of responsibility for the injury-causing accident. Any damage award you receive will be reduced by your percentage of fault. A skilled Ventura personal injury attorney can argue for the minimum possible fault to be assigned to you in these situations.

Getting Compensation for Your Ventura Personal Injuries

Even seemingly minor accidents can result massive medical bills, disability, and catastrophic or even fatal injuries. This is the reason courts may award victims of negligence compensation for their mental, physical, emotional, and even financial injuries. It’s common to see awards for injuries including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Hospital bills
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent scarring, disfigurement, or disability
  • Property damage

You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
