Injuries occur in Los Angeles every day, making victims out of ordinary people. It is just and responsible for victims to desire justice in the form of monetary compensation, or damages, and emotional peace of mind. The right way to seek this justice is by hiring a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, like the experts at Pacific Attorney Group. They will analyze the details of the victim's case, and determine whether or not the personal injury victim has a chance at recuperating those damages. But how can a personal injury victim in Los Angeles know whether he or she has a case or not?
How Los Angeles personal injury attorneys determine whether or not a victim has a case
What Los Angeles personal injury attorneys look for specifically when going over the primary facts of an injury victim's case is negligence. Negligence is generally the cause of
personal injury in Los Angeles. When a personal injury victim approaches a
Los Angeles accident attorney with a case, that personal injury attorney must look at four aspects to determine whether the victim sustained his or her injuries because of negligent behavior from the other party.
What are the four aspects of negligence?
The four aspects of the victim's case that Los Angeles personal injury attorneys look for determine whether negligence was the cause of the accident are whether there was a responsibility for a person to act with the safety of others in mind, that person failed to act to act responsibly, that failure of responsibility caused the accident and the victim's injuries, and those injuries are directly related to that specific accident which was caused by the irresponsible behavior of the other person. If all four of these aspects are present in the victim's case, then the
Los Angeles accident attorney will move forward with the case.
For example, if a dog bite victim sustained injuries from an aggressive dog because that aggressive dog was not properly locked up by its owner, the Los Angeles personal injury attorney would, in all likelihood, determine that the dog bite victim had a proper reason for seeking damages. The
accident lawyer would determine that the dog owner had a responsibility to keep the dog restrained in order to protect others, the restraints were not kept, which allowed the dog to leave its premises and bite the plaintiff, resulting in injury. All four instances line up directly with the four aspects of negligence.
If you or a loved one has sustained injury due to the negligence of another party, don't hesitate to contact a Los Angeles personal injury attorney. Get the justice you seek and deserve.
