Pasadena Personal Injury Lawyers
Often we suffer personal injuries through no fault of our own and go about our usual course of business. We are either in a rush, have too many obligations to dwell on the injury, or are not aware that the injury is serious. Days later we realize that we’re in a great deal of pain and the repercussions of an injury can even take months or years to resolve through various therapies or surgeries. Other’s take immediate action, visit an emergency room or a physician and begin the process of physical healing without much more.
An injury can be debilitating, it can interfere and disrupt your quality of life and in turn, it can affect your family. A personal injury should never be taken lightly as you do not know what the future of that injury and healing entails.
You May Be Entitled To Compensation
Set aside the fact that you will need time to recuperate from the physical injury and paid. Your life may look different in many ways, including, how you go about your daily basic activities and even work. Did you know that you may be entitled to compensation? Yes, financial compensation for your injuries is a possibility that can help you with both medical bills, loss of wages and improving your quality of life during recovery.
Time Is Of The Essence
In California, time is not on your side. You have a limited window in which to file a personal injury claim in California. The state of California has a statute in place for Personal Injury Claims and that time to file is only available for two years from the date of your actual injury. It is important that you speak to a qualified California personal injury attorney. What’s more, it’s important that that attorney understands your circumstances and handles your case with care and compassion.
What Kinds Of Personal Injury Cases Does Chang Injury Lawyers Handle?
Bicycle Accidents: Bicycle accidents in California are very common, unfortunately, many cyclists have been hit by motor vehicles and the injuries sustained during an accident can be devastating and life-threatening. Weigh the difference between that of bicycle and that of a vehicle, it’s not surprising to learn that a vehicle far outweighs a bicycle and therefore, some of these vehicle-on-cycle accidents can even be deadly. From the shoulder to limbs and even neck and head injuries, it’s impossible to protect every part of the human body with a helmet and depending on the impact, a helmet can only soften the blow by so much.
Construction Site Injury: Construction sites require a level of safety on the construction end, however, because of the nature of construction locations and the various elements involved, depending on the location of scaffolding and other items, it’s often not possible to account for all of the moving parts. One fatal flaw in the layout or structure of a construction site and injuries can and do occur. Injuries sustained by you as a result of a construction site injury are not your fault. You may be confused as to who is responsible for your injuries, i.e., the construction company, a sub-contractor or another entity. Chang Injury Lawyers is here to help you navigate through this confusing process and get you the help that you need.
Dog Bite Injury: A dog bite injury can be horrific. It is both traumatizing and painful and in the aftermath, you will begin to take steps to heal from the physical pain but that trauma may still be there. Many states enforce leash laws and in the state of California, you may be confused as to whether or not you can hold the owner of the dog responsible based upon which area you live in. You will need to speak to a qualified personal injury attorney who understands the law to help you understand whether or not you may be entitled to compensation and who may be held responsible.
Pedestrian Accident Injury: Running errands or getting to and from different locations, whether work or home, the gym or the grocery store, our days often involve getting from point A. to point B. on foot. We were all taught as children to look both ways before crossing the street and while we may follow all of the rules at every corner in California, we can never account for the driver of a vehicle. We cannot account for the distraction or negligence of others. One slight distraction from a driver and a pedestrian can suffer serious injuries. If you were injured in a pedestrian accident, we can help you.
Premises Liability: Premises Liability claims often refer to injuries sustained through Slip and Falls. Whether you have suffered a Slip and Fall, a Trip or any other injury of the like, it’s important to understand Premises Liability. Once you have been injured, your focus should be on getting well and healing from your physical pain and injury. A California Personal Injury attorney can help you understand how to move forward and possibly assist you in obtaining the compensation that will help you as you recuperate and get your life back on track.
