When you need a Woodland Hills personal injury attorney, you can count on the team at JML Law to be by your side, fighting for the compensation you deserve.
What Are Personal Injuries?
If you have been injured, you may have many questions:
How will I be able to pay my bills if I cannot work?
Will my insurance cover all of these expenses?
Those are questions that need to be answered, but we also want you to know that you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim if someone else is responsible for your injuries. Most of us face dangers on daily basis, but here are some common ways people get injured due to other people’s negligence:
Work accidents: when someone gets injured at work, they are supposed to be covered under workers’ compensation insurance. Unfortunately, there are times when people are denied a claim or even fired for reporting an injury.
Vehicle accidents: California is a dangerous place when it comes to accidents. Out of the hundreds of thousands of accident injuries in the state, for the last reporting year, there were nearly 12,000 serious injuries (spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, internal organ damage, etc.). Many of these accidents were caused by drunk or distracted drivers.
Pedestrian accidents: there were over 14,000 pedestrian accidents in California’s latest reporting year, many due to negligent drivers, but also caused by badly repaired pedestrian walkways, errant electric scooter riders, and more.
Slip and fall accidents: when you go onto someone else’s property, you expect to be safe. Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents cause many injuries each year. They happen due to the carelessness of property owners and their agents (managers and employees).
Faulty products: thousands of faulty products are put on the market each year. Sometimes there is a design or manufacturing problem. Other times, there is a labeling issue.
We want you to know that these are just a few ways in which people sustain personal injuries. Always seek legal assistance for advice.
