I Was Injured In A Car Wreck, What Steps Should Take?
If you are injured in a car wreck, first step, call 911. If you’re injured get appropriate medical attention. If you’re severely injured, wait for the ambulance to take you to the hospital.

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?
The worth of a car accident claim is fact-dependent. The short answer is that your case is worth whatever it’s going to take to make you whole. That’s the entire point of the civil litigation system – to make you whole again. As such, it varies in every single case and for every single person.

What Is The Legal Standard Under The Premises Liability Law? How Does It Relate To Slip And Fall Or Trip And Fall Injury Cases In California?

Does It Change Or Impact A Slip And Fall Injury Case In California If I Was Injured On Personal Property Versus A Place Of Business?
The liability question is primarily the same if someone slips and falls on personal property versus a place of business. However, there are some differences. For instance, if you slip and fall at a house where there’s a puddle of water on the kitchen floor because a child spilled a glass of water, that is something that you wouldn’t expect on a kitchen floor. Whereas, if you’re at the food court in a mall where they have beverage dispensing machines, the premises owner will be held to a higher standard. At a mall, people spill drinks on the floor all the time. Therefore, it is expected that the floor is kept clean and safe. A mall or store owner might be required to have a rubber mat or floor in the area or be expected to inspect the area. By contrast, a homeowner isn’t required to have a rubber matt or floor in their kitchen…Read more
