Elements of a Negligence Claim in California
To be successful in a personal injury case in California, it is crucial to gather the facts and evidence that prove the elements of a negligence claim. When faced with a strong case that clearly establishes the other party’s liability to you, the insurance company is more likely to settle your case quickly and fairly rather than waste your time with lowball offers or try to argue they aren’t responsible.
The elements of a negligence claim according to California personal injury law are:
- Duty of Care: The defendant owed a legal obligation to act responsibly toward the plaintiff.
- Breach of Duty: The defendant failed to meet that responsibility through their actions or omissions.
- Causation: The defendant’s behavior directly led to the plaintiff’s injury.
- Damages: The plaintiff has suffered either physically, emotionally, or financially due to the defendant’s actions.
Darlene Trevino takes a meticulous approach to each case, ensuring that these elements are persuasively presented to maximize the chances of a successful claim and prompt resolution.
The Role of California’s Statute of Limitations in Your Littlerock Personal Injury Claim
In California, the time frame for filing a personal injury claim is short and strict. In most cases, you have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. Failing to meet this deadline could cost you your right to seek compensation. That’s why Trevino Law Firm prides itself on meticulous case management, ensuring no deadlines are missed. Although it’s our goal to settle your claim without having to file a lawsuit, we keep an eye on the clock to preserve your rights should litigation become necessary to achieve a successful result.
Navigating California’s Comparative Negligence Doctrine
The state of California adheres to a “pure comparative negligence” system, which allows you to recover damages even if you are considered partially responsible for your injuries. In these situations, your compensation will be adjusted according to your percentage of fault. If you are deemed to be 30% responsible, for example, you will receive 70% of the total compensation amount. Even if you were deemed more than 50% at fault, you could still hold the other party accountable for their role in causing the accident.
The team at Trevino Law Firm has a deep understanding of this doctrine and works strategically to minimize your percentage of fault, thereby maximizing your compensation. We don’t let the insurance company dictate each party’s share of the blame. Rather, we expend all the time, resources and expertise necessary to build a case based on facts that holds the other party fully accountable for their part in causing your injury.
