Understanding Legal Responsibility in Sacramento Injury Cases
Liability in an injury claim is finding who is legally responsible. It means who is the likely cause of your injury. It’s who is chargeable with being the author. In the United States our liability laws define the responsible parties in the event of personal injury. Your injuries depend on the circumstances, that is: your location and activity. You were driving on I-5 and were side-impacted by a speeding driver. Or, you were working a crane at a construction site in the Auburn and a cable snapped. The law determines legal responsibility or liability when these exact circumstances, or similar circumstances, have happened before. The responsible party is a particular person or legal representative who knew or should have known an injury could result. A party who acted carelessly, recklessly or committed intentional wrongdoing is the negligent or liable party.
Personal injury lawsuits can take many different forms. The responsible party is defined differently in different sets of circumstances. For instance, if you were injured in a car accident, in the workplace, by a defective product or if you slipped and fell in a public place, different laws apply which define the legally responsible party.
Your compensation depends on the severity of your injuries, finding the responsible party and proving legal responsibility or liability. A Sacramento lawyer can help with types of personal injury cases including motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, brain injury cases, wrongful death cases and nursing home or elder-care abuse.
