VAN NUYS PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS
Advocating for Victims Throughout the San Fernando Valley
If you experienced an injury as a result of someone else's negligence, you’ve probably been through more pain and suffering than you ever thought you would. Even in the most difficult circumstances, though, there’s the possibility for some measure of recovery.
At Williams And Seemen, our Van Nuys personal injury lawyers can work to restore your life as much as possible to the way it was before you had to deal with health or mobility concerns. A personal injury settlement could help you pay your medical bills, free up worries about income, and give you some closure after your traumatic experience.
Personal Injury Settlements
Usually in personal injury cases, the plaintiff seeks financial compensation from the defendant. This compensation may cover medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, and possibly even loss of future income if the injury affected the plaintiff’s ability to work.
The court may award the full amount of damages you and your legal team request, or it may rule that the defendant must pay a lesser amount. Since a great amount of money rides on this decision, the defendant’s attorney (and their insurance company) will work very hard to have the case dismissed, or at least attempt to minimize the loss and pain you received. This can be very disheartening, but it helps to know that you have a strong legal team ready to advocate for you.
Examples of Personal Injury Cases
Though there are many reasons a person could be liable for someone else’s injury, there are some types of cases we see more often than others.
The following are a few common personal injury case scenarios:
- A company sold you a defective power tool that caused an injury when you used it
- Another driver recklessly caused an accident that left you in pain or unable to work
- A person who invited you to their home or business failed to warn you about a danger, such as rotting porch planks or faulty wiring, that resulted in an injury
There is a wide variety of potential personal injury cases, but in general, if an event that was not your fault caused you to lose income or earning potential, incurred large medical bills, or caused significant pain and suffering, there’s a good chance you have a legitimate personal injury case.
