Getting Hurt In Oxnard
Under the law, people and businesses have a responsibility (or duty) to avoid causing harm to others. If a person is reckless or negligent, they (or more likely their insurance policies) can be held accountable.
Personal injuries can arise from many different kinds of accidents, including but not limited to:
- Trucking accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
