Thousands of personal injury lawsuits are filed in California each year. Most people are probably familiar with these types of lawsuits when they arise from motor vehicle accidents. But, that is just one type of situation that can lead to a personal injury lawsuit. Construction accidents, property accidents and even dog bites, among many other situations, can also be circumstances where the facts support the filing of a personal injury lawsuit.
In many cases, the victims of a personal injury incident are simply looking for compensation to cover their medical expenses. That, however, assumes that the injuries involved are rather minor or that full recovery is expected in short order. In situations where victims suffer serious or catastrophic injuries, the compensation victims might pursue could be much more substantial.
When victims suffer life-changing injuries, they usually have no choice but to make significant adjustments in their daily routines. They may need frequent and regular medical care, for example, or they may need structural changes to their home to make day-to-day life easier. Or, victims may even have emotional or mental challenges in the aftermath of a serious accident that need to be addressed. In fact, it could be all of these things at once.
