Every day, when you wake up and go out into the world in Fremont and other nearby communities, there are a thousand different ways you could be injured. You might be in a car accident. You could slip and fall on wet pavement or fall down a flight of stairs. An unchained dog could bite you, or you could use an unsafe product which could explode, break or otherwise cause you bodily harm.
The bottom line is, you could be injured at any time, in any place. Sometimes, it’s just a case of life intruding. At other times, it is clear and can be proven that somebody else was directly responsible for your injury. When that’s the case, you have legal recourse to seek compensation for your injuries.
If you can prove negligence due to the actions of another person, you may be entitled to a cash settlement. Negligence can be proved by showing a defendant acted outside the bounds of what could be considered reasonable care for a given situation. For example, if a drunk driver plows into you, they have breached that duty of reasonable care and can be considered negligent.
If you feel you have a case and want to seek compensation, you’ll need to retain a top-notch injury attorney. Although you might be unfamiliar with the processes and actions required to move through the various steps of a personal injury case, an experienced Fremont injury attorney will know exactly how to proceed and will give you the skill and direction you need to help you get a fair and just settlement.
An injury attorney can help you get a settlement for:
- A loss of income due to your injury
- Recovery of medical bill costs
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Other related out-of-pocket costs
It is important that you don’t delay after an injury. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible allows them to work on your case immediately, giving you the best chance at receiving the highest possible settlement.
