Windsor Personal Injury Attorney
Trusted Windsor Personal Injury Lawyer – We’re Here for You!
Do you live in the Windsor area? Are you a bicyclist or motorcycle enthusiast? Or perhaps you were at one time, but are no longer because you’ve sustained serious injuries in a tragic accident? Were you using a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft and involved in a crash? Who will be responsible for your medical bills, lost wages, or compensation for pain and suffering?
On the other hand, perhaps riding a motorcycle or a bicycle is not your thing and you drive in a car as the majority of us do. You felt safe on the roadway until you were the unwitting victim of a dangerous and destructive accident with a huge 18-wheeler or semi-truck.
Another scenario involves dangerous dogs who aren’t controlled by their owners and are allowed to run free or aren’t kept on a leash. Dog bites and dog attacks can be extremely vicious and cause serious injuries such as permanent scarring and emotional trauma.
If any of these scenarios sound familiar and you have come across our page, you may be contemplating filing a personal injury lawsuit. If so, you’ve arrived at the right place. At Henderson Law, we know that these sorts of accidents are all too common.
We also know that the damage sustained as a result can be significant and lasting. We know that a significant number of these accidents occur in Windsor and across the state of California each year. And we know that, though you may feel overwhelmed, you do not have to feel that you are alone.
If you are the victim of one of these accidents, you have rights under the law and you may be entitled to significant damages. At Henderson Law, we would like to fight to help you recover the compensation you deserve. Contact us today!
What Do All of These Accidents Have in Common?
You may think that each of these sorts of accidents is very different in nature, and in some ways this is true. Certainly, a bicycle is substantially different from an 18-wheeler truck. However, they have more in common than you might initially expect.
For one thing, in each of these situations, you, the victim, were likely at a significant disadvantage. If you were in a car involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, you were the party at a significant disadvantage in terms of size and damage likely incurred.
The same applies if you are a cyclist or a motorcyclist who has been involved in an accident with another vehicle. Simply by the nature of the accident itself, it’s a likely possibility that you were the party who incurred the most significant and lasting damage.
If you were seriously injured by a defective product that was dangerous, the best way to recover full and fair compensation for your injuries is to seek out an experienced personal injury lawyer who focuses their legal practice on helping people file product liability lawsuits against the at-fault parties.
Every day we see in the news a product being taken off the market because it is dangerous. If this happens to you, and you are seriously injured, you don’t have to go through it alone. We are here to help and to answer your questions.
Another factor that these accidents have in common is a causative factor – namely, negligence. It is not at all uncommon for truck drivers to be exhausted as they deprive themselves of sleep to meet the demands of a tight delivery schedule. Likewise, it is not uncommon for truck drivers to take drugs or medication in order to stay awake or to be distracted or negligent in the manner that they secure items to their trucks or maintain their vehicles. As one would expect, this negligence often causes accidents.
Being in a car accident with a big truck that weighs many thousands of pounds usually ends badly for the occupants in the car. Imagine being struck by a fully loaded tractor-trailer going 75 or 85 mph. The amount of force and energy behind that truck could crush a car. This is why, with many big truck accidents, there are many cars involved.
In our busy distracted world today, there are distracted drivers of all kinds. There are individuals fiddling with the radio when they should be watching the road. There are people who do not follow the speed limit or follow other necessary rules of the road. And there are manufacturers who, on occasion, negligently create products with defects that can lead to accidents. Any and all of these types of negligence could easily contribute to an accident that has lasting and significant damage to another. Perhaps you are a victim of that negligence. If so, we are very sorry, and our proven Windsor personal injury attorney is ready to lend a hand. Contact us today!
What Damages Might I Be Entitled To?
The laws surrounding trucking accidents, auto accidents, motorbike accidents, biking crash accidents, and slip and fall accidents can be complex. Any number of parties, in addition to the driver, may be responsible. This can include insurance companies, those responsible for road maintenance, manufacturers, and others. Likewise, under the law, there are a variety of potential damages that may be available:
- Unpaid medical bills for past treatment;
- The cost of potential future treatment that may be necessary for the years to come;
- Any past lost wages due to being off work from a disability or for treatment;
- Compensation for the lost potential to earn future wages;
- Loss of consortium for your spouse due to the loss of services, comfort, and support due to your serious and ongoing injuries;
- Compensation for the actual pain and suffering or disfigurement you have had to endure.
These are just a sampling of the types of damages that may be available to you. An experienced Windsor personal injury attorney will be able to give you more specifics after hearing your story.
Windsor Wrongful Death Accidents
Another thing that many of these accidents have in common—whether it be a motorcycle accident, construction accident, or industrial accident— is that innocent victim sometimes dies from their injuries. When someone’s negligence causes death, we call this a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful death claims are usually very complex and difficult to litigate. There is a lot of emotion and uncertainty involved. In many cases, the victim of the wrongful death is the breadwinner of the family, so there are questions as to who is going to pay the bills and put food on the family table. You need to have a Windsor personal injury lawyer to fight for your family’s right to receive as much compensation as legally possible for your loss.
These include damages for medical bills (both past and future), lost wages, lost potential to earn future wages, loss of consortium, damages for pain and suffering or disfigurement, and even damages for wrongful death – just to name a few options of many. Consulting with a knowledgeable Windsor personal injury attorney about the law and your rights under the law is an important first step toward recovery.
