Being in an accident can change you and your family’s life physically, emotionally and financially. It is important to work with a litigation lawyer who can develop a strong strategy to recover injuries compensation. Do not tackle complex litigation on your own, it is an unfair burden to place on yourself. Workers comp lawyers at the Law Offices of John E. Hill in Oakland, Fremont, and Hayward represent clients in a number of legal areas including personal injury, workers comp, and commercial litigation.
The victim of a personal injury may be entitled to monetary compensation and, in some cases, punitive damages. Personal injury is an injury suffered psychologically or physically as a result of an accident and includes, but is not limited to, claims for traffic accidents, workplace accidents, assaults, industrial diseases, and strain and stress injuries. To be actionable, a personal injury must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions of a manufacturer, the victim’s doctor or landlord, or some other person or organization who owes the victim a duty of ordinary care. Our personal injury lawyers can help a victim of a personal injury by educating the victim of his or her rights, ensuring that the victim’s rights are safeguarded, and fighting to secure appropriate compensation for the victim’s injuries.
A doctor or other health care provider may be liable for medical malpractice if he or she deviated from accepted standards of practice. To prove malpractice, i.e., to establish a health care provider's liability, the victim must secure testimony from a medical malpractice expert proving the health care provider's negligence was a cause of injury or death. When the tort lawyers and the victim establish liability, he or she is entitled to damages. Also, a victim must file a malpractice lawsuit within the statutory time period or ""statute of limitations"" established by state medical malpractice law for medical malpractice claims. A medical malpractice attorney can help the victim secure expert testimony and navigate the numerous procedural issues associated with malpractice claims.
Products cause injuries when they are unreasonably safe, not accompanied by proper warnings, or negligently manufactured. Because many steps are involved in the manufacture, sale, and distribution of products, an injury from the product could be the result of one or more different causes. ""Defects"" include flaws in the way a product is designed, manufactured, or marketed. Typical causes of action in product liability include strict liability (the usual theory of recovery), breach of warranty, negligence, manufacturing and design defects, and breach of the duty to warn. A product liability lawyer can help a victim of a product injury by sorting out potential defendants and securing expert testimony to support the victim’s claims.
Every year thousands of Americans sustain serious work related injuries. In addition families are suffering from employers negligence which leads to the wrongful death of their loves ones.
