Each day people are seriously injured in California and some those people require surgery because of their injuries. Some people are taken to the hospital and have surgery immediately. Others are forced to have surgery later when they do not heal.
Immediate surgery can be surgery to repair arms and legs, hips and knees, head injuries and possible internal bleeding. Surgery that is delayed is often back or neck surgery, where the doctors wait to see if you will heal before proceeding on with the operation.When Surgery is Needed Because of Someone Else's Carelessness
When someone else is careless and injures you, not only do you have to go through the pain and suffering of the injury but you also know that an injustice was done. You want to do something about it, but you do not know where to turn. That is where we can help.
Whether you already have had surgery or will require surgery in the future, California law states that you have a right to recover money damages for all the suffering you are going through if your injury was caused by someone else's carelessness. For over 40 years I have been an attorney helping seriously injured people recover money damages for their injuries. You are entitled to recover damages for your past medical care, future medical care, past lost wages, future lost wages, and all related damages. Most importantly, you are entitled to recover money damages for the pain and suffering you are going through.
Surgery due to another person’s carelessness can be because of myriad reasons. A car accident, a slip and fall, medical malpractice and many other reasons can cause surgery to take place. These types of cases are not always cut-and-dry. They often require many tricky legal twists and turns that only a lawyer experienced in these types of cases can take on successfully.Don't Let Your Statute of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.What if my Expenses are High?
Many times, filing a simply claim against a negligent persons insurance is not enough. Surgical costs can be astronomical. They can not only include costs of the surgery but also lost wages and even a loss of life skills along with permanent health care.
There are other parties that can be held responsible in many surgical cases. Government entities, employers and others can also share responsibility for surgeries are held legally responsible for the costs incurred.
A car accident claim against a government body is an extensive and complex procedure. Cases that include a claim against the government should always be handled by a capable counselor. Not only are they intricate but they also contain many firm deadlines and legal ambiguities that must be addressed. Improper road signs or speed limit postings are other examples of where a government facility can be at fault in a car accident.
Employers can be held accountable in an assortment of circumstances as well. If the driver of a work truck is injured during the course of a work day, in the act of a work related activity, the establishment may be responsible. The same goes if the victim is injured by someone at work. If an employee is found liable for injuring another person while on the job, the employer can be held responsible.Call Us for Help - (916) 444-4444
