Oakland Injury Law
Injury Litigation in Oakland
Are you suffering from an injury in Oakland due to an accident caused by another party’s carelessness or recklessness? Often, innocent accident victims suffer severe physical, emotional, and financial injuries due to someone else’s negligence or willful misconduct. Under Oakland injury law, you have a right to seek compensation for your injuries from the negligent person or business whose careless actions caused your accident.
Proving Personal Injury Accidents
At the Law Offices of Stephen M. Fuerch, we are experienced in interpreting Oakland personal injury laws and pursuing injury litigation involving:
- Vehicle accidents: Oakland injuries involving trucks, buses, cars, and motorcycles are investigated to determine fault based on traffic rules and which party’s negligence contributed most to the accident or injuries. Your own carelessness, such as texting while driving, may contribute to the accident or injuries and can lessen the amount of recovery.
- Slip and falls: Property owners are responsible for maintaining their properties and for preventing known unsafe conditions on their properties. If you have sustained injuries from a fall on someone else’s property, you need to prove the owner was not maintaining the property or should have known about and removed the hazard that caused your Oakland injury.
- Defective products: Injury litigation in Oakland involving defective products can be complicated in that the victim must prove that the personal injury was caused by a defect in the product’s design or manufacture.
- Medical malpractice: Accidents caused by misdiagnosis of illness, surgical errors, or birth injuries require proof of a doctor’s act of negligence or omission. This can be very complicated and extremely difficult to prove.
Types of Damages
If you are involved in any of the accidents listed above, or any other type of injury caused by negligence or recklessness of another party, you may be able to sue for medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
