Why Us? Because We Listen

Sherman Oaks
Personal Injury Attorney

We all have suffered an injury at some point in our lives, whether it was a scrape, bruise, laceration, broken bone, knee injury, back injury, burn, or something else. Many of these injuries are caused by our own negligence or clumsiness. We didn’t watch where we were going, slipped, and fell. Or we were going too fast on a motorcycle and got into a wreck. 

Common Injuries - Oaks Law Firm

But when a third party’s negligence causes your accident, you have the right to file a lawsuit and recover compensation. A personal injury claim can help you obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other economic and non-economic damages. 

Personal injury cases can be complex. Don’t try to handle one on your own and lose out on compensation. Contact the Sherman Oaks personal injury attorneys at Oaks Law Firm today to get started on your personal injury claim. There’s no risk, as we charge no fee unless we win, so you have nothing to lose and a large amount of compensation to gain.

Types of Personal Injury

A person can get injured in a variety of ways, including the following:

Bicycle accidents:

Many people ride bikes to school or work in the Sherman Oaks area, but there are a lot of risks involved. Many motorists refuse to share the road with bicycles, resulting in major accidents and injuries.

Brain injury.

Brain injuries can be caused by sports, falls, car accidents, and other activities that cause blows to the head. These injuries are often very severe and require significant treatment. A brain injury can be lifelong, affecting various parts of the body.

Burn injury.

Burns can be a serious injury. Millions of burns are reported every year in California alone. A burn can affect all layers of the skin, as well as muscles, ligaments, and bones. Severe burns can be complicated to treat and may require skin grafts. Some are disfiguring, causing physical and emotional distress.

Bus accidents.

Sherman Oaks can see a lot of traffic congestion. To get around, many residents use public transportation, such as buses. While convenient, buses can be dangerous. An inexperienced or distracted driver can cause a serious accident. 

Car accidents.

Car crashes are the most common type of personal injury. These auto accidents happen every day and can range from minor to severe to fatal. Car accidents can happen in numerous ways and cause many types of injuries.

Construction site accidents.

Construction is one of the most dangerous industries. Construction sites often have heavy machinery, electricity, building materials, and heights. Any of these factors can cause a serious accident.

Dog bites and attacks.

Man’s best friend can be a person’s worst enemy in the blink of an eye. A dog that is angry or provoked may attack someone, causing lacerations, deep wounds, disfigurement, scarring, and even death. Children and the elderly face the highest risk of a dog attack. 

Motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycles are fun to ride, but their small size makes them susceptible to serious injuries. A motorcycle crash can easily be catastrophic or even deadly. While many of these accidents are caused by speeding or reckless motorcycle riders, motorists do share the blame for many of these motor vehicle accidents.

Pedestrian accidents.

Walking from place to place can be convenient in Southern California, where parking spaces are at a premium. However, motorists are not always looking out for pedestrians. A person can easily get hit by a car, especially in busy areas. Surviving such an accident is not likely. 

Premises liability.

You should expect to be safe when on another person’s property. When you are injured while at someone else’s house, property, or place of business, you can file a premises liability claim against the property owner. 

Product liability.

We expect that the products we buy are safe. If you are injured by a defective product, such as appliances, electronics, vehicles, toys, medications, or medical devices, you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer. 

Slip and fall accidents.

Spills, puddles, and slippery surfaces can cause a person to fall and suffer serious injuries. Many of these accidents are preventable. They may occur in grocery stores, restaurants, parking lots, stairs, and sidewalks. 

Truck accidents.

Semi-trucks are a common sight on California’s highways. Unfortunately, many of these truck drivers cause auto accidents due to truck companies prioritizing profits over safety.

Work accidents.

We don’t expect to get injured at work but given that we spend eight or more hours in the workplace a day, accidents are common. A person injured in the workplace can typically receive workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of fault. 

Proving Negligence

You may think you have a valid personal injury claim, but to prove negligence, there need to be several elements in place:

1). The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care.

2). The defendant was negligent and breached this duty.

3). The defendant’s negligence caused the victim to suffer injuries or other damages.

Negligence refers to the failure to use reasonable care to prevent harm to others. A person is negligent if one of the following applies:

  • They do something that a careful person would not do in the same situation.
  • They fail to do something that a careful person would do in the same situation.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve

If someone else is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for the full amount of damages you've suffered. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, as well as pain and suffering. You must bring forth your claim within one year of the accident date. Not filing your case within one year will bar you from recovery.
