Types of San Bruno Personal Injury Cases We Handle

At Shapiro Legal Group, we represent California accident victims in a wide range of cases. If you’ve been in an accident of any kind, chances are we can help. A few of the types of cases we regularly handle include:

  • Automobile accidents: California motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of preventable injury and death. Motorists owe a duty to others on the road to follow all traffic laws and use sound judgment while driving. The most common causes of San Bruno car accidents include distracted driving, speeding, impaired driving, and drowsy driving.
  • Dog bites: Dogs are known as man’s best friend for a good reason; they are generally even-tempered and enjoy the company of humans. However, it is easy to forget, but dogs are still animals, with animalistic instincts. California personal injury law allows dog bite victims to hold the animal’s owner strictly liable in many situations. When strict liability applies, the person bit by the dog will not need to establish that the owner was negligent.
  • Slip and fall accidents: Property owners, including individuals, businesses, and government entities, are required to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. In addition, landowners must warn invited guests of latent hazards that a guest may overlook.  When someone is injured in a San Bruno slip and fall accident, they can pursue a California premises liability claim against the landowner.
  • Product liability lawsuits: The manufacturers of products, including cars, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and heavy equipment, are obligated to ensure that the product is safe for its intended use. This means making sure that the product does not suffer from a design defect or manufacturing defect as well as warning consumers of the dangers the product may present. When a manufacturer fails to fulfill this duty, they can be held liable through a San Bruno product liability claim.
  • Wrongful death claims: A San Bruno wrongful death claim is a type of personal injury lawsuit. However, instead of being filed by the injured party, wrongful death claims are brought by the deceased accident victim’s surviving family members. California law allows the following family members to bring a wrongful death lawsuit: spouses, domestic partners, children, and sometimes parents. The personal representative of the accident victim’s estate can also bring a California wrongful death claim.

Regardless of how you were injured, we want to help. Our dedicated San Bruno personal injury attorney possesses the skills, dedication, and experience necessary to successfully bring nearly any type of claim.  When you allow us to represent you in your case, you can rest assured that you are in capable hands.

What Compensation Can San Bruno Accident Victims Receive?

Every case is unique.  There is no predetermined amount of compensation or magic formula. However, most accident victims are eligible to receive compensation for the following basic  categories, including:

  • Medical Expenses - One of the most significant portions of any accident claim involves medical bills.  Not only can you receive compensation for the initial expenses associated with your accident (such as ambulance transportation and emergency room care), but also any follow-up treatments or physician appointments, surgeries, hospitalizations, prescriptions, medical equipment, and even in-home nursing care. If the medical costs were paid by your health insurance, then determining proper compensation to collect from the adverse insurance company and dealing with your health insurance company’s  reimbursement right can be extremely complicated.  You should get a San Bruno injury attorney like Mr. Shapiro who knows what to do, as well as your obligations, before you make a big mistake.  
  • Lost Wages - Whether you missed one week of work or you cannot return to work due to a permanent disability, you can receive compensation for those lost wages and loss of future earning capacity. Mr. Shapiro takes these losses seriously, and you should not have to suffer a dramatic decrease in household income because of someone else’s negligence. In severe cases, we work alongside economic professionals to ensure you get full compensation for your lost wages and any future earnings you would have made if you were not disabled from your accident.
  • Pain and Suffering - You may receive compensation for the physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional trauma you experience as a result of your injuries. Whether you suffer from anxiety, depression, have trouble sleeping, or have a dramatic decrease in your quality of life, Mr. Shapiro will ensure you receive compensation to compensate you for your non-economic damages after an accident.

Should I Settle or Sue?

Over 90 percent of all personal injury claims are resolved through settlement. Even if your case requires a lawsuit, there is a reasonably good chance that you will never have to walk into a courtroom. Nevertheless, the ability to win in court is vital to settlement negotiations, even if you never go to court. 

Your ability to win in court is what provides you with most of your bargaining leverage against the opposing decision maker (typically an insurance company). Retaining a law firm with a reputation for winning in court, such as the Shapiro Legal Group, is one of the best ways to execute an “attitude adjustment” on the part of a stubborn opposing party. 

Even if your case never goes to trial, it might still be necessary to litigate in order to prove to the other side you mean business. Negotiations can continue between the time the initial complaint is filed and the initial trial date.  Whether to settle or proceed to trial is one of the biggest decisions to be made. The decision must take into account many factors including the probable outcomes of the trial, the costs to be spent or saved, the settlement offer, and the risks involved.  Ideally it is beneficial to stay open minded to both settlement and trial. While no one has a crystal ball, our San Bruno personal injury attorney Mr. Shapiro is experienced in assessing these factors and advising you based on what is best for your bottom line. Getting settlement advice is one of the best reasons to hire an experienced San Bruno personal injury trial lawyer.
