Representing Ventura Clients In Civil Litigation
A dedicated Ventura personal injury lawyer can help to ensure that you are compensated for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. At the Quirk Law Firm, LLP, we handle many different types of civil litigation cases, including but not limited to:
- – Negligence cases: when another person’s negligence causes your injuries, you should file a personal injury claim to seek compensation. For instance, car accident claims often involve a driver’s negligence, and you should not have to pay for someone else’s decision to text while driving, for example. Although the California Office of Traffic Safety reports that our state has one of the lowest rates of fatal car crashes in terms of population, Ventura residents continue to suffer serious injuries in traffic collisions. Other types of civil litigation involving negligence claims often include pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, and truck accidents.
- – Strict liability cases: in certain circumstances, a plaintiff doesn’t have to prove that another person’s negligence caused her injuries. Instead, the plaintiff only has to prove certain statutory elements in order to show that someone is liable. For instance, under the California Civil Code, dog bite cases fall under a strict liability standard. In most cases this means, if you are bitten by a dog, you only need to prove that the person you are suing owned the dog involved in the attack.
- – Premises liability cases: depending on the type of accident in which you have been injured, a premises liability case can lead to a negligence claim or can involve strict liability for a property owner. It is very important to discuss your case with an experienced Ventura personal injury attorney.
