According to a recent report, close to 1.25 million people die each year in serious road traffic accidents and the subsequent injuries caused by them. At the same time, auto accidents in Los Angeles are becoming increasingly frequent and dangerous. These tragic accidents can happen while in a car, a bus, or a truck, and even while on a motorcycle or a bicycle.
Auto accidents can cause considerable psychological and physical damage to the innocent victims injured by negligent drivers. If you or a love one have been involved in an auto accident and you suffered injuries, you can file a personal injury lawsuit to recover financial compensation.
What is a Personal Injury
A personal injury is a physical injury inflicted on a person’s body, as opposed to damage to property or reputation. Negligence is the basis for liability in most personal injury lawsuits, including auto accidents, slip and falls, and product liability.
Serious Personal Injuries
Injuries can range from mild to serious. Brain injuries in particular are quite traumatic, and often cause long lasting or permanent damage that have a lifelong impact on the victim’s quality of life. Traumatic brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries can drastically change an individual’s life, putting them under immense financial, social, psychological and emotional strain. Similarly, spinal cord injuries can also be life-changing—even paralyzing the victim for life. Fortunately, if you or a loved one have suffered an injury in an accident that was not your fault, California law is on your side.
