Holding the Reckless and Negligent Accountable
Personal Injury Attorney Orange County
Personal injury law, also known as tort law, refers to cases in which a victim is injured as the result of another person’s negligent or wrongful actions. Personal injury law encompasses a wide range of cases, including slip and fall, wrongful death, bus and trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents, and premises liability. When you or a cherished member of your family has been injured due to the negligence of another person, it can be difficult to know how properly to proceed in order to protect your interests. Personal injury cases can be complex, so it is important to seek the representation of an experienced personal injury lawyer who will focus on your case while you focus on your recovery. In the Santa Ana and Orange County area, personal injury attorney Jeff Roberts and The Roberts Law Firm focus their practice on helping victims of personal injury.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Every personal injury case involves two elements: liability for the incident which led to the injury and damages related to the injury. Personal injury cases are divided into three categories based upon these two elements: negligence, strict liability, and intentional wrong.
- Negligence: The defendant caused an accident that resulted in personal injury. Examples of negligence include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents.
- Strict Liability: Use of a defective product led to personal injury. In these personal injury cases, a claim can be brought against anyone along the manufacturing chain who is responsible for the defective product, including the wholesaler, designer, and store owner.
- Intentional Wrong: The defendant purposely inflicted personal injury upon the victim, such as in a domestic battery or sexual abuse case.
