Most Common Personal Injury Cases Our Attorneys Take On

It has been our privilege to help many clients in Tuolumne County win their personal injury lawsuits. The following are some of the most common injuries that we see on a regular basis:

Catastrophic Injuries

Some accident victims sustain injuries so catastrophic that most or all aspects of their lives are profoundly and often permanently impaired. For survivors, going back to work may no longer be an option. The following are common catastrophic injuries we encounter:

  • Head and brain trauma, from concussions to the most severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries, potentially leading to paralysis, including paraplegia, hemiplegia, and quadriplegia
  • Neck and back injuries, including whiplash and herniated discs
  • External injuries, including burns, lacerations, and amputations
  • Internal injuries, including internal bleeding, nerve damage, fractured bones, blindness, and hearing loss
 

Accident victims with catastrophic injuries sometimes find themselves fighting for their lives. Survivors and their families may need lifelong medical and rehabilitation care, which can be extremely taxing on their finances and emotional well-being.

Amputations

Losing a limb in an accident, be it in the workplace involving heavy machinery, an explosion, or a car accident, is devastating. Surgical amputation is often done as a last resort to save the victim’s life when the limb is too damaged. Traumatic amputation, on the other hand, is the immediate separation of the limb as a result of the accident.

Having a limb amputated due to someone else’s negligence alters a person’s life physically, mentally, and financially. Their condition won’t just negatively affect their income and family but also their sense of self, making it difficult for them to return to their normal lives.

The compensation that amputation injury victims are entitled to depends on various factors, most importantly, the severity of their trauma and its impact on their lives. No matter how generous an insurance company’s initial offer might seem, the financial losses associated with this type of injury can quickly deplete the settlement. This is why it’s crucial to fight for the maximum policy limits, something only our skilled Tuolumne County lawyers for personal injury cases are capable of negotiating for.

Dog Bite & Animal Attack Injuries

Dogs are beneficial to their owners’ well-being, but they can still be aggressive. Dogs and other pet animals attacking other humans are still being reported.

California’s strict liability laws hold pet owners fully accountable for dog bites. This means that in personal injury cases, dog owners cannot argue that they were unaware of their dog’s aggressive tendencies or took precautions to prevent the attack. The strict liability statute applies even if the dog has never bitten anyone or been violent toward humans.

The dog owner is also only strictly liable if the victim is injured:

  • Despite the fact that the animal bite did not break the skin
  • Was in public or “lawfully in a private place” when the attack occurred, such as a mail carrier delivering mail on private property
 

On a related note, dog bite attacks by police or military dogs on duty or defending themselves are exempt from this regulation.

Due to the risk of infection or rabies, dog bite victims may need medical attention and treatment, such as antibiotics and injections. Medical transport and timely treatment might be costly, but a dog bite or any animal attack may require it.

Animal attack victims often suffer from these injuries:

  • Scars, deformities, or disfigurement, especially in the face
  • Rabies and other infections
  • Amputation
  • Nerve damage
  • Psychological trauma
Burn Injuries

The severity of a burn injury depends on how many skin layers are affected:

  • First-degree burns affect the skin’s outermost layer, or the epidermis. It appears red and dry but does not have blisters or scars.
  • Second-degree is when the second layer of the skin, called the dermis, along with the epidermis, is affected. Blisters, scarring, and swelling are apparent.
  • Third-degree burns are some of the worst injuries. They burn both exterior skin layers, pierce through the hypodermis, and reach muscles, fat, tendons, and bones. Ironically, damaged nerve endings make third-degree burns the least painful.
 

Knowing the different types of burns is equally important since some types, such as chemical burns, require different treatment than, say, thermal burns.

  • Thermal burns occur when fire or a very hot object comes into direct contact with the skin. Subcategories of thermal burns include steam burns (caused by vaporized liquid), flame burns (caused by direct contact with fire), contact burns (caused by touching a hot object like iron), and explosion burns (which can cause deformity or death).
  • Chemical burns are caused by direct contact with a hard chemical or substance, including acid, bleach, or chlorine. Treating the burn victim requires identifying the chemical. Industrial workers usually get this burn.
  • Electrical burns can be thermal, like a burning wire coming in contact with a victim’s skin, or electrocution-related. Aside from the external burns, being electrocuted can lead to internal injuries, as the current affects internal organs and muscles. Seeking medical assistance immediately after the incident is critical, even if the victim looks okay.
Orthopedic Injuries

In the medical field, orthopedics treats the skeleton and its joints. Orthopedic injuries include any damage, fractures, and other injuries to the musculoskeletal system, which comprises the bones, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Most orthopedic injuries stem from accidents or physical trauma.

The most common orthopedic injuries are:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Rotator cuff injury/tear
  • Ankle sprain
  • Foot sprain
  • Stress fracture
  • Wrist fracture
  • Shoulder injury/dislocation
  • Knee injury
 

Orthopedic injuries can happen to anyone anytime, anywhere due to accidents like slip-and-falls and traffic collisions. If you’re injured, do not “wait it out” or treat it on your own. Your injuries can only be accurately diagnosed and treated by a doctor. More importantly, know that you shouldn’t suffer because of your injury. Let our personal injury lawyers in Tuolumne County fight for the maximum settlement you deserve for your damages.

Lacerations

A sharp or blunt object with a forceful impact, such as in a road crash, can tear the skin. Minor cuts are relatively harmless, but serious ones can pierce through the skin and into the muscles, internal organs, or even bones, causing infection, severe bleeding, and extreme pain. Lacerations should be treated immediately to reduce scarring.

To prevent infection after a laceration, do the following:

  • Continuously apply sterile gauze with pressure to the wound to stop bleeding.
  • Assess the injury’s severity and depth.
  • If the injury is serious, consult a doctor about closing it, as some cuts are too deep to close without medical assistance. Delays further increase the infection risk.

Lacerations heal differently and require different treatments. Common lacerations are:

  • Full-thickness lacerations, which heal slower and scar more. Closures may require sutures or stitches
  • Burst or jagged lacerations, which require stitches and trimming
  • Simple lacerations, which rarely require antibiotics or other oral treatment
  • Major lacerations, which may require prescribed antibiotics and even vaccines in cases of animal and human bites
Injuries On Children

Accidents that harm or kill children destroy lives and leave friends and family utterly devastated. If your child was injured in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for certain damages, from hospital bills to pain and suffering. Ask the experienced personal injury attorneys Tuolumne County turns to about your rights and best legal alternatives.

These injuries frequently involve children getting backed over by cars. A vehicle pulling out of a driveway or parking space may accidentally run over a child who is usually just quietly playing around. Both the child and the driver are too focused on what they’re doing to notice changes in their environment.

Child injuries also sometimes result from swimming pool accidents, playground and sports injuries, animal attacks, harmful toys, tripping and falling, choking, and poisoning. A person or party, such as a babysitter or a daycare center, taking care of your child owes you and the child a “duty of care,” which means they should ensure their safety. You can claim damages if they breach that responsibility and injure your child.

Determining Liability After An Accident

In personal injury law, everyone should be careful to avoid causing harm to others. If someone doesn’t take proper care and someone else gets hurt, that person is responsible for the injury. Being liable means:

  • Someone has a duty of care to others.
  • They fail to do their duty.
  • Another person is harmed or experiences a loss due to this failure.
  • The person who didn’t do their duty is responsible for the consequences.
 

If you think someone’s negligence caused your injury or loss, don’t hesitate to get a free consultation. Contact our Tuolumne County personal injury lawyers to discuss your situation and learn about your legal options.

Who Is Liable After An Accident?

Identifying those responsible for the incident can vary based on the circumstances. The at-fault party can be another driver, a property owner, a product manufacturer, or other negligent entities that cause injuries to someone else.

  • Drivers — Liability often falls on the driver who violated traffic rules or acted negligently. This can include speeding, running red lights, and driving under the influence.
  • Property Owners — If an accident occurs on someone else’s property, such as a slip-and-fall, the property owner may be liable if they fail to address hazards or provide proper warnings.
  • Manufacturers — If a defective product causes an accident, the manufacturer or distributor may be held responsible for the resulting injuries.
  • Employers — In workplace incidents, liability might rest on the employer if they failed to provide a safe working environment or if the accident occurred due to their negligence.
  • Healthcare Professionals Or Institutions — In medical malpractice cases, healthcare professionals or institutions could be held liable for injuries resulting from negligence or substandard care.

Determining liability after an accident is a complex process that requires legal expertise. Speaking with our Tuolumne County personal injury lawyers can help you navigate the situation and ensure the responsible party is held accountable for the damages you incur.

Damages To Recover In Tuolumne County Personal Injury Cases

If you’re injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, there are different ways to recover compensation, including:

Economic Damages

You can recover the tangible financial losses calculated through receipts, bills, and invoices, including:

  • Medical Bills — The responsible party should cover your hospital bills, including immediate and future costs, based on the severity of the injury.
  • Lost Wages — Some injuries may make working impossible, leading to a loss of present and future wages.
Non-Economic Damages

You can also recover intangible losses that are subjective and harder to calculate, including:

  • Pain & Emotional Distress — It’s tough to measure the pain and emotional distress after an accident. Arash Law helps victims seek compensation for the trauma caused by someone else’s recklessness.
Punitive Damages

If intentional conduct is proven, attorneys may push for punitive damages. This type of compensation, which is rarely awarded, aims to punish the at-fault party and discourage similar negligent behavior in the future.

If you believe you are entitled to compensation, don’t hesitate to seek legal advice. Contact our Tuolumne County personal injury lawyers to explore your options and ensure all your losses are accounted for.

Statute Of Limitations For Personal Injuries In Tuolumne County

In California, you have two (2) years from the date of the accident to file a claim.

Our Tuolumne County personal injury lawyers will work on your case as soon as possible, observing the deadlines and ensuring no time is wasted.

What To Do After An Accident In Tuolumne County

It’s hard to stay calm after an accident. Still, it’s important to compose yourself and gather evidence at the scene and the days after. First, make sure you’re in a safe spot and check on others involved. Your well-being comes before anything else.

  1. Check For Injuries — Make sure everyone is okay. If there are injuries, call 911 for an ambulance.
  2. Call The Police — Even if there are no visible injuries and you think the damage is minor, call the police for an official accident report. It helps with your insurance claim. Some police won’t write a report if there are no injuries, so be sure to tell them if you have any.
  3. Exchange Information — Collect important details from everyone involved in the accident. If you’re in a traffic collision, get the names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, and insurance information of those involved. Note each vehicle’s make, model, year, color, and license plate number.
  4. Get Contact Information From Witnesses — Speak to any witnesses and jot down their names and phone numbers in case you need them later.
  5. Be Careful With What You Say — Even if you’re upset or shocked, stay cautious with your words after an accident. Avoid apologizing, admitting fault, or making claims. Your statements at the accident scene can be used against you, harming your case later.
  6. Take Pictures — Take photos of the damages sustained in the accident, as well as the location and other relevant details that can provide further context. In car accidents, these include road conditions and traffic signs and signals.
  7. Contact Our Tuolumne County Personal Injury Lawyers — After an accident, reach out to our lawyers before talking to the insurance providers. They will make sure you don’t say or do something that can harm your claim.

What Not To Do After An Accident

After a personal injury accident, it’s important to avoid common pitfalls that could potentially harm your case. Be careful not to:

  1. Settle Too Quickly — Don’t rush into settling with insurance companies. Quick deals may not cover all your costs and losses.
  2. Skip Medical Evaluation — Don’t ignore even minor injuries. Quick medical attention helps build a strong case.
  3. Forget To Report To The Police — Make sure to report the incident to the police. Their reports are essential evidence.
  4. Rely Only On Words — Get everything in writing. Don’t depend on verbal agreements alone.
  5. Overshare About The Accident — Do not discuss the case on social media. What you say could be used against you. If asked by anyone, just stick to the facts of what happened.
  6. Delay Legal Help — Don’t wait to talk to one of our Tuolumne County personal injury lawyers. Early advice can protect your rights and guide you in the right direction.
FAQs About Tuolumne County Personal Injury Claims

In personal injury claims, the value of your case depends on the damages, which include physical, mental, and financial costs. The defendant or their insurance pays damages to the person who filed the claim (plaintiff). Some damages, like medical bills, are easy to calculate. Others, such as pain and suffering or limitations from the injury, are harder to measure. The main types of compensation include income, medical treatment, property loss, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, and punitive damages.

Most personal injury cases are settled before going to trial. They resolve when both parties agree on a settlement calculated and backed by the strength of the evidence. Building a strong case increases the chances of a fair settlement. If your case goes to trial, our Tuolumne County personal injury attorneys will prepare you for what to expect.

Most cases can wrap up quickly, usually within a few weeks, without going to court. Your lawyer might negotiate directly with the other party or their insurance for a quick resolution.

Other cases might last a year or more, but most fall in between. The complexity of your case influences how long it takes. You also play a role in this, as you can decide whether to accept or reject settlement offers, affecting the case’s duration.

After you file a case, you give the other side the paperwork and wait for their reply. During this time, you can build your case by talking to witnesses, collecting medical evidence, and gathering information from the other party. Both sides can bring preliminary motions to the court.

Your lawyer might negotiate with the other side to settle the case, or you might try mediation. If you settle, you get paid, and the case ends. If it goes to trial, your attorney presents your case, and the jury decides the outcome.
