Personal Injury


Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues, liability and damages. Personal injury is one of the typical damages suffered by the defendant. One of the most typical personal injury case here in Southern California is traffic accident (for details of how to deal with traffic accident, please visit our website under the traffic accident section). Besides traffic accidents, there are a lot of incidences that could result bodily injury. For example, in case of a physical altercation, one might suffer some kind of bodily injuries.

In a typical personal injury case, the victim plaintiff is not only eligible to claim the medical expenses, she/he may also eligible to claim for damages such as pain and suffering or loss of wages.

The injury might also happen in workplaces. If that is the case, the victim will have a choice of filing a worker’s comp claim or a personal injury claim. The difference between worker’s comp claim and a personal injury claim that award for worker’s comp can be quite low compared to personal injury claim, because a victim cannot claim pain and suffering in worker’s comp cases. If a victim decides to file a workers comp claim, the person will give up the right to sue the employer for personal injury, except in very specific circumstances.

There are also other benefits for workers’ comp, and if a client decided to obtain our firm to represent him or her, we will run a comprehensive analysis on the circumstances and help our client to choose the best way to get compensated from the claim.
