At Tim D. Wright, we defend personal injury victims. Where possible, we resolve cases out of court so our clients can return to their lives. If needed, however, we assemble a litigation strategy and take the case to trial. Either way, we stand by our clients from beginning to end so they can focus on recovering.
What Is Personal Injury?
The essence of a personal injury case is negligence. When another individual, business, or even a governmental agency acts irresponsibly, others can get injured. The injury is often physical, but it can also be psychological or emotional as well.
"Negligence" is a legal term that implies failure to exercise a proper level of care under the circumstances. Another way of putting it is failing to act as a reasonably prudent person would. Negligence can be demonstrated through someone's actions (like speeding or driving intoxicated) or through an omission (such as failing to eliminate a known hazard from one's business property).
To win a personal injury case, the victim must show that the defendant was negligent. There are four particular elements that are required under California legislation:
Possible Damages In a Personal Injury Case
The objective of a personal injury lawsuit is to make the plaintiff whole via financial compensation. This compensation is referred to as damages, and some examples are:
Are There Time Limits to File a Personal Injury Claim?
Your right to take legal action against a negligent party will not last forever. In California, personal injury claims are subject to what's called a statute of limitations. This sets a deadline for plaintiffs to submit their lawsuits before they lose the right to do so. For a personal injury, the statute of limitations is two years. In most cases, the clock starts to run when the injury occurs.
However, it's best not to procrastinate taking action on your claim. Witnesses' memories can diminish over time, proof will be more difficult to obtain, and you might forget vital information if you wait too long. If you or a loved one have been hurt, reach out to a dedicated Beaumont personal injury attorney.
