Oakland Personal Injury Lawsuit

Oakland personal injury lawsuits are civil claims filed by an individual (the plaintiff) against a person, company, or other entity alleging that the other party caused physical harm. The lawsuit alleges the other party is legally responsible for the injury caused to the plaintiff and must provide compensation—potentially including economic and non-economic damages—to the plaintiff.

Our Oakland personal injury attorneys will determine what types of damages you’re entitled to and establish how much compensation you should receive for your injury. Among the factors that determine your Oakland personal injury claim are:

Oakland Automobile Accidents

Automobile accidents are a significant cause of fatalities and injuries. Car crashes, bus accidents, motorcycle incidents, and semi-truck collisions all have a substantial impact on a person’s health and overall well-being.

Oakland Car Accident Lawyer

Speed is a leading cause of Oakland car crash injuries and fatalities. In 2014, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were 624 speed-related collisions involving injuries and/or deaths. Unfortunately, not everyone on the road follows the speed limit and other road laws, putting fellow motorists at risk of devastating and possibly fatal injuries.

These injuries cause physical harm and emotional trauma. Car crash victims frequently suffer severe injuries, including paralysis, brain damage, and internal injuries.

Other causes of Oakland car accidents include:

Bus Accident Injuries

Bus accidents occur for many of the same reasons as car crashes. In addition to those, however, common causes of Oakland bus crashes include:

Additionally, crashes involving school buses, transit buses, and charter buses cause extensive injuries to passengers because of their high center of gravity and lack of seatbelts or other safety features.

Moreover, in the case of a rollover accident, bus occupants are at risk of being ejected, suffering even more significant injuries.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists are at an increased risk of accident and injury because many other drivers fail to accommodate for them. Once a motorcycle crashes, riders are likely to either be thrown from the motorcycle or have the motorbike land on them, causing crush injuries. These circumstances all increase the risk of catastrophic damage to the motorcyclist, including fatal injuries, paralysis, crush injuries, internal injuries, and fractures.

Truck Crash Injuries

Automobile accidents involving semi-trucks are particularly gruesome, causing disastrous harm to victims in passenger vehicles. Semi-trucks sit much higher than passenger vehicles, increasing the risk of an underride crash. Furthermore, their massive size means vehicles they collide with will likely be crushed. Unfortunately, Oakland truck crashes are linked to truck driver inattention, fatigue, or failure to stop for slowed traffic.

Sadly, it’s usually the people in other vehicles who pay the price for a truck driver’s error.

Medical Injuries

Our Oakland personal injury lawyers are experts when it comes to medical injury cases. Medical injuries occur when something goes wrong during a medical procedure or medical treatment that causes harm to the patient. These include medical malpractice injuries and birth injuries.

Medical Malpractice Injuries

Oakland medical malpractice refers to situations in which a medical professional offers medical care that falls below an accepted standard, and causes harm to a patient. This can mean:

Unfortunately, the results of a medical malpractice injury are often permanent. They can include paralysis, amputation, medication overdose, and in some cases, death.

Among those who may be liable for an Oakland medical malpractice injury are doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, medical care centers, or other healthcare providers.

Birth Injury Lawyer

A birth injury can happen in the blink of an eye when a complication arises that puts the health and safety of the mother and infant at risk. If the doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider fails to anticipate or respond to these complications, both the mother and infant are in jeopardy of life-threatening and permanent injury. Such injuries include Cerebral Palsy and Erb’s Palsy.

Additional Oakland Personal Injuries

Construction Injuries

Construction work is one of the most dangerous fields of work. Workers face many hazards, and often the companies employing them do not provide adequate safety training or protection. Oakland construction workers often find themselves on scaffolding high in the air, driving heavy equipment, or moving massive beams into place. Unfortunately, if anything goes wrong, the worker faces critical injuries.

Slip and Fall Injuries

Unfortunately, slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere at almost any time. When someone else’s carelessness or negligence causes them, that person is legally liable for the harm caused. That harm includes:

Furthermore, victims of a slip and fall require time off work to recover and wind up paying costly medical bills. So, if you’ve experienced a slip and fall injury, then contact our Oakland personal injury lawyers for a no-obligation consultation today!
