How Can We Help? *

Unfortunately, accidents happen and there is no way to know if an accident will occur or not.

Our Echo Park lawyers’ team at La.legal will help punish the person at-fault or to pay the compensation.

What follows is a discussion of how you can be sure if you have grounds for a personal injury claim in Echo Park.

Grounds for Echo Park Personal Injury Claim

In order to know if the person is to be held liable for your injuries, they must have either:

  • Behaved negligently towards you
  • Injured you purposely
  • Be strictly liable

– says our personal injury attorney at La.legal.

1) Negligence

In order to prove negligence, the criteria must be met:

  • Injury: These injuries may be either physical, emotional, financial or a combination of the three.
  • Duty: A legal duty to act or behave in a certain manner towards you. For example, a check upon your safety by keeping vehicle properly maintained.
  • Breach of duty: Driving carelessly at any time by breaching a driver’s duty on the road and putting your safety on stake.
  • Cause: The breach of duty by the person must have been the cause of your injuries. For instance, if you have been involved in a slip and fall injury because of a shop owner.

2) Intention

According to our Echo Park personal injury attorney, if you have experienced an intentional injury crisis such as defamation, slander and/or assault, the person can be accused for a claim on certain grounds.

3) Strict Liability

An individual involved in actions that are mainly harmful in nature such as transporting explosives or other volatile material falls under strict liability. This also applies in cases where a person has been injured under the influence of defective products.
