California statutes consider any harm or injury sustained due to another party’s actions, or failure to act, as a personal injury. Anyone who has sustained such an injury must know their legal rights especially if they have a serious injury. Most people are not used to dealing with insurance companies and as a result many turn to personal injury attorneys.

About every nine minutes 3 people die and almost 850 people seek medical treatment as a result of what’s best defined as a preventable injury. Many injuries of this type are due to the negligent actions of another party’s direct actions or failure to act. Many people live their entire life and never spend much time thinking about all the dangers surrounding them. Any time you get into a car there is a very real chance you could be involved in an accident. You could slip and fall in the workplace or your child could get bit by a dog on the way home from school. You could end up with a parent in a nursing home with neglectful staff. All of these are situations where someone can sustain a personal injury.

Common Personal Injuries

·       Fractures

·       Muscle injury

· Hyperflexion/Hyperextension Injuries

·       Burns

·       Internal organ damage

·       Spinal damage

·       Traumatic brain injuries including concussions

·       Paralysis

Any injury has the potential to impact a person’s short-term and long-term activities and impact both their quality of life and longevity. It’s prudent to seek appropriate care and medical attention after an accident. If you think you have a personal injury claim you should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Injury symptoms don’t always appear right away.

An example of an injury that may not be readily apparent is a soft tissue injury such as a whiplash. Another type of injury that may not be immediately apparent is a concussion. When you strike your head, your brain may hit the inside of the skull causing damage. Some symptoms are obvious, such as a loss of consciousness or feeling disoriented. However, some symptoms are not so obvious. Difficulties with concentration or memory are a good example of this.

Personal injury cases cover all sorts of situations where a person has sustained harm due to another party’s actions or negligence. Here are a few common situations:

·       Dog Bites

·       Medical negligence

·       Slip and fall injuries

·       Car accidents

·       Product liability

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.

My daughter was involved in an automobile accident in an intersection on her 17th birthday. The other person said it was her fault and my daughter said her light was green. I am not the sort of person who sues but my insurance
