Personal Injury

If you have been injured in a car accident, big rig accident, or motorcycle accident, a skilled injury attorney like Yuba City accident attorney Steve Gimblin, can help navigate you through the sometimes murky and predator-filled waters of insurance settlement and/or injury lawsuits.

 

All car accidents are chain reaction crashes. After the moment of impact, victims often experience the loss of a family car and sustain injuries that mean extended hospital stays, expensive diagnostic tests, long-term physical rehabilitation, and other medical expenses. At the same time, victims often miss weeks or months of work, and with little or no money coming in, it does not take long for the bills to pile up and become overwhelming. All this time, the insurance company seemingly calls every day with vague promises of a financial settlement that protects their own bottom line.  It seems clear that your family’s welfare is not really the insurance company’s primary concern.

 

At the Law Offices of Steve Gimblin, we want to help you overcome all the obstacles you face, and not just one or two. That is why we quickly evaluate the legal issues in your case, begin collecting evidence, and give you solid legal advice. We also immediately connect you with a team of medical professionals who will see that you get the care you require, often at no immediate cost. Then, we take on the insurance company and demand fair compensation for your economic and noneconomic damages.

Building A Case

In Sacramento County civil court, the plaintiff has the burden of proof to show negligence by a preponderance of the evidence, which means more likely than not. The elements of a personal injury case are:

  • Duty: In most cases, the defendant has a duty of reasonable care, so drivers must obey traffic laws, avoid dangerous substances, be mindful of environmental conditions, and generally drive defensively.
  • Breach: Lack of sleep (drowsy driving), cellphone use (distracted driving), using alcohol, and ignoring traffic laws are some of the most common breaches of the duty of reasonable care.
  • Factual Cause: The phrase that Woodland lawyers use is that the car accident would not have happened “but for” the tortfeasor’s (negligent driver’s) action or inaction.
  • Legal Cause: The plaintiff’s injuries must be a foreseeable result of the tortfeasor’s conduct.
  • Legal Cause: The plaintiff’s injuries must be a foreseeable result of the tortfeasor’s conduct.
  • Damages: Economic damages include lost wages and medical bills; noneconomic damages are things like emotional distress and loss of enjoyment in life.

In many cases, a third party may also be partly responsible for the victim’s personal injury and other damages.
