Los Angeles California Personal Injury Victims Don’t Have to Suffer Long Term

When you are hurt in an accident in Los Angeles California you can undergo a staggering amount of emotions all at once. You may be shocked, shaken, and on top of it all, injured. All of these feelings can be amplified even more if you are not to blame for your accident or personal injury. When this is the case, you need to acquaint yourself with information on California Personal Injury laws to ensure that your financial burdens and medical concerns are taken care of.

In the state of California, personal injury law falls under the tort law. Tort is a Latin word that is defined by ‘inter alia’. What this translates to in English is that a personal injury is an intentional or negligent wrong that does not arise out of a statute or contract. This means that personal injury may include intentional acts such as assault or battery, negligence, or even defamation. Personal injury falls under tort action which means you have the right to sue another individual for wrongs of a civil nature, and when it comes to personal injury, wrongs that result in injuries to your body or person.

California personal injury suits that are considered torts cover a wide range of injuries. Many injuries of tort nature are the direct result of negligence on another party’s part. These include but are not limited to automobile collisions, SUV accidents or rollovers, wrongful death suits, survivor claims, liability injuries on someone else’s premises such as falls or slips, airplane injuries, and so many more. However, torts of intentional nature can also be considered under Los Angeles California personal injury law. These intentional torts include injuries sustained in assault or battery cases, or infliction of an intentional nature on emotional stress or distress. In most cases, negligence is the leading cause of injuries.

What exactly is a tort in Los Angeles? The term ‘executor de son tort’ is used to refer to injuries of your own wrong. This refers to torts that are the result of force, trespassing, or physical and personal injuries. In some cases, torts can be inflicted without involving force. Torts of a nature that are without force, refer to the rights either relative or absolute of a person, to an individual’s property, to property of a personal nature that is in possession of someone else, or to incorporeal or corporeal property. Tort injuries of this nature are referred to as nonfeasance, misfeasance, or malfeasance.

When you are considering California personal injury claims, you also need to know about the Inter Vivos View. Under former Common Law by English standards, family members were not entitled to Personal Injury settlements for tort cases, as at the time, the Church did not want to see familial relationships break down. Today’s court in California feels that when a family member hurts or injures another member of the family, the family relationship has already broken down and as such, personal injury suits are possible. If you are considering pursuing Personal Injury claims against a family member outside of the state of California, you will need to consult Inter Vivos View on your state as not all states carry this clause.

When suits are made against a spouse, these are done so apart and separate from any additional family law case such as divorce, custody, or annulment. Again, other states may encourage or require you to combine your tort suit with your family law cases, so check with your state regulations.

If you are considering hiring a California personal injury attorney or lawyer to file a claim, your first step should be to seek legal advice to find out what your rights, and your options are.
