What Are Personal Injuries?
Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans are involved in work injuries, a slip and fall in a public place, a car collision with resulting injuries, medical malpractice injuries, or injuries resulting from a dangerous drug or a defective medical product or device. Most of us are completely unfamiliar with the legal system as well as unprepared for the paperwork required and the deadlines that must be met when a personal injury lawsuit is filed.
There are statutes of limitations that must be taken into consideration, evidence to be gathered, expert witnesses to consult, insurance companies to deal with—the list can seem endless. For a person who has been injured and is doing their very best to heal body and spirit and carry on with day-to-day life, these tasks can be truly overwhelming. This is where the Claremont personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Scott Glovsky come in. In some cases, where there are catastrophic injuries, the emotional, physical, and financial aftermath can be especially devastating.
Catastrophic injuries are generally considered to be anything requiring multiple surgical procedures, a high level of constant supervision, and ongoing rehabilitation and assistance for the remainder of the victim’s life. Severe burn injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, brain trauma, neck injuries, serious internal organ injury, paraplegia or quadriplegia are all considered catastrophic injuries. The victims of catastrophic injuries may never regain the ability to work, therefore, may be unable to provide financial support to themselves or their families.
Victims of catastrophic injuries—like all injury victims—have a narrow window of opportunity to seek recovery for their injuries. Insurance companies will likely try to settle quickly before it is determined how many years the victim will require medical care and assistance. A Claremont personal injury attorney from the Law Offices of Scott Glovsky has the tenacity and commitment necessary to ensure those victims of catastrophic injuries receive the compensation they need and deserve.

The Frustrations Involved in Dealing with Insurance Companies
Of course, most of us have seen insurance commercials on television that imply they are your friend and will be by your side immediately following an accident. Unfortunately, this is rarely the reality. Insurance companies are primarily interested in their financial bottom line. The insurance company is betting on the fact that most of their premium-paying individuals will never file a claim. When you attempt to get a fair settlement from an insurance company without having a knowledgeable Claremont personal injury attorney by your side, you are adding to the insurance company’s end-of-year profits.
Are You Eligible for a Claremont Personal Injury Claim?
Broadly speaking, if the actions of the person who caused your accident were either negligent or careless, then it is likely you are entitled to file a personal injury claim. Carelessness or negligence occurs when a person fails to do what a normal, reasonable person would have done under the same circumstances. In other words, a reasonable person understands that it is imprudent to attempt to speed through a red light, hoping to miss other cars. Under California Civil Code Section 1714, everyone is responsible for the result of his or her willful acts and also for an injury that occurs to another due to a lack of ordinary care.
The four elements in proving negligence in a personal injury claim are: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. More simply, did the person or entity owe you a duty of care? If so, was that duty of care breached? Did that breach of duty of care directly result in your accident, and did you suffer damages (injuries) as a result? If the answer to all these questions is “yes,” then you likely have a solid personal injury claim.
Types of Injuries Which Require a Claremont Personal Injury Attorney
There are many situations in which a personal injury attorney can greatly benefit the victim, however, there are certain accidents that absolutely require the services of a dedicated personal injury attorney. Some of those situations include:
- Medical malpractice injuries such as birth injuries or other injuries received in a hospital due to negligence require a personal injury attorney. Taking on a hospital or doctor who is likely protected by a veritable army of attorneys is almost impossible on your own.
- Construction site accident injuries can lead to more than a single defendant and the injuries are likely to be severe or fatal.
- Defective product injuries—such as defective brakes or tires on a vehicle—should always be referred to a personal injury attorney due to the legal complexities involved.
- Defective medical devices or dangerous drugs are the same as defective product injuries—complex and potentially with multiple defendants. You should hire a personal injury attorney when dealing with injuries from defective medical devices or dangerous drugs.
- Any life-changing, catastrophic injury received from a major accident that was due to the negligence of a person or entity will benefit from a personal injury attorney.
- Nursing home injuries to the elderly can be difficult to prosecute; if your loved one was injured in a nursing home due to the negligence or inattention of a worker or health care provider, you need the assistance of a highly-qualified personal injury attorney.
- Any auto accident injuries that caused serious injury and are directly tied to the carelessness of another deserve a personal injury attorney’s skill and compassion.
