What Is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is simply an injury suffered by a person. This injury can either be directly caused by another or can be proximately caused by another. One example of direct fault occurs when a person is texting while driving and crashes into another person’s car. The at-fault driver’s negligence is the direct source of the victim’s car accident injuries. An example of proximate cause occurs when the at-fault person’s negligence has created an unsafe condition that then leads to the accident. For instance, a storeowner fails to clean up a puddle on the stairs. A patron, while climbing the stairs, slips on the puddle and falls. While the storeowner may not have caused the puddle, the storeowner is negligent for failing to dry the puddle. This negligence is the proximate cause of the accident.

An accident can lead to a variety of different injuries, and these injuries can be compensated under California negligence law. These injuries can include:

  • Outstanding medical bills
  • Future medical expenses such as physical therapy, medication or treatment
  • Lost past and future wages
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage

What Is Negligence?

Negligence is comprised of five elements:

  1. The defendant had a duty to the plaintiff, such as a duty to maintain safe premises.
  2. The defendant violated this duty.
  3. The defendant’s breach of duty then caused the plaintiff’s accident.
  4. The accident resulted in injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
  5. The accident was foreseeable to the defendant.

In California, plaintiffs are permitted by law to sue for damages even if they are partially responsible for the accident. This is known as the doctrine of comparative negligence. If the jury finds the defendant partially at fault, the jury will then award the plaintiff the percentage of damages that are attributed to the defendant’s negligence.

While car accidents are the most common form of personal injury case, there is a vast number of different types of accidents.
