What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Unsuspecting people occasionally suffer injuries and harm because of someone else’s carelessness, recklessness, negligence, or intentional criminal conduct. With a personal injury claim, the injured person can hold the wrongdoer legally responsible for their losses from their injuries.

After most accidents, injured people usually file claims with the at-fault parties’ insurance companies. However, many insurance companies are more interested in looking out for their bottom line financially than in providing money to injured claimants. As a result, insurance companies may try to deny the claim or offer an unreasonably low settlement. That is why working with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney in Pleasanton right from the start is beneficial.

A seasoned legal representative can help an injured person determine their next steps. They can help file the initial paperwork with the insurance company. A legal team could also negotiate a more reasonable settlement. If the insurance company declines to offer a fair amount or denies the claim, an attorney could file a lawsuit and take the case to court.

What Happens if an Injured Person Was Partially to Blame for an Accident?

Many times, accidents occur because more than one person makes a mistake. Often, more than one person is to blame for accidents. Sometimes, the injured party in an accident is partly at fault for causing their injuries. Fortunately, state law allows injured people to pursue legal relief even if they bear some responsibility for causing the accident that led to their injuries.

State courts operate with a pure comparative fault standard. Injured parties could still seek damages even if they are more to blame than the defendant. The state permits claimants to collect damages even if they were 99 percent at fault and the defendant was only 1 percent to blame. A court would divide the percentage of responsibility and use that percentage to calculate the compensation a claimant could collect.

For example, if a speeding driver struck a pedestrian who crossed the road at night, the pedestrian might be partially to blame for the accident because they were not easily visible to a driver. A court might determine a driver was 75 percent responsible and the pedestrian was 25 percent to blame, reducing their recoverable damages by 25 percent. If you have questions about shared fault and personal injury claims, you should consult a well-informed attorney in Pleasanton.
