Orange County Personal Injury Claims
Orange County Personal Injury attorney and lawyer Scott D. Hughes takes all injury claims very seriously. He works tirelessly to thoroughly investigate a client's claims and determine how he can best help.
There are three different categories in which a personal injury claim can be filed:
- strict liability, and
- intentional wrongdoing.
In negligence claims, the plaintiff's personal injury has been caused either by the defendant's reckless and careless actions, or by their failure to provide reasonably safe conditions. For example, a driver can be sued for negligence if he or she irresponsibly speeds through a red light, injuring other people in a resulting crash. Similarly, a supermarket is obligated to provide their customers with a safe shopping environment. If falling merchandise or slick floors lead to personal injury, then the store can be sued for its negligence.
Strict liability claims generally deal with defective products that cause personal injury. As long as the consumer correctly followed instructions and used the product in the way it was intended, manufactures may be held liable for injuries sustained from that product's use.
Finally, intentional wrong claims are filed if the defendant purposefully and maliciously harms the plaintiff. Oftentimes intentional wrong claims are filed in conjunction with criminal litigation. The perpetrator guilty of assault and battery can be sent to jail on criminal charges, while the civil lawsuit forces them to pay a settlement to the victim.
