Most accidents occur because of someones negligence or carelessness. Car drivers who exceed the speed limit, for example, are being reckless or careless. In general, if one persons carelessness results in an accident, that person may be held liable for the injuries suffered by the victim. If the victim was careless as well, the degree of each persons fault will have to be determined. A Yorba Linda personal injury attorney can review your case and help you decide what steps to take going forward.
When the Victim is at Fault
There are a number of circumstances in which the victim of an injury accident will not be eligible for financial compensation. If someone is violating the law by trespassing, for example, he or she will not be able to pursue financial compensation for any injuries suffered in a falling accident or dog bite incident. Drunk drivers will also have a difficult time pursuing compensation for any injuries they may have suffered in an accident. Victims of slip-and-fall accidents will have to prove that they were not only legally on the premises but also that they fell because of a dangerous condition and not because of their own carelessness.
Yorba Linda car collisions often result in devastating injuries. Victims of serious injuries may pursue compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and other related damages. The victim will have to prove that the other drivers negligence was the cause of the accident. Was the other driver speeding or driving under the influence? Was the at-fault motorist talking on a cell phone or weaving through traffic? Did the other car driver run through a red light or stop sign? It is important to remember that a driver does not have to be cited by the authorities for a traffic violation in order to be held civilly liable for their actions. If their negligence was a contributing factor in the collision, then, he or she may be held at least partially responsible for the injuries suffered.
Property Owners Liability
Did the accident result from a dangerous condition? Did the victim fall on a slippery floor that was not properly marked by a wet floor sign? Property owners may be held liable for the injuries that occur on their premises if the victim can prove that a hazardous condition caused the accident and that the owner knew of the condition and failed to fix it.
When a defective product causes an injury, the manufacturer of the product may be held responsible for the injuries suffered by the victim. There are several questions to ask in such cases. Was the product defective? Did the victim suffer an injury because of that defect? Was the victim using the product correctly at the time of the accident? Commonly defective and dangerous products include medications, auto parts, children's toys and food products. Anyone injured in these types of accidents would be well advised to discuss their case with an experienced product liability lawyer.

Businesses do not want to recognize your injuries, or pay for them, leaving personal injury victims with little choice other than pursuing personal injury claims.
In some circumstances, victims are offered up-front monetary rewards from the entities that are responsible for their injuries, but later find that the amount they received will not be enough to cover their long-term medical expenses, let alone their pain and suffering.
