Determining Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

When an accident causes injury or wrongful death to individuals involved, an immediate question is raised for fault in the accident and who will be held responsible for the damages. Filing a personal injury claim can be tricky, especially without the counseling of a Simi Valley personal injury attorney. Determining if negligence is present is vital to the outcome of your case.

Call The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus today to learn more about filing a claim and to have all of your questions addressed.

What is contributory negligence?

In personal injury cases, contributory negligence simply means that the victim of the accident had some part in contributing to his or her own injuries. In cases such as this, if the victim is just 1% at fault and the other party is 99% at fault, no person can receive compensation. As such, it is vitally important to secure legal representation as soon as possible to prevent this verdict from occurring.

As a former private investigator for a large law firm, lead personal injury attorney Gerald L. Marcus is capable of conducting a thorough investigation surrounding the accident. We will dig up any information we can find, and leave no stone unturned in our attempt to help prove that the accident was not at all your fault. Whether you have been injured in a car accident, construction accident, drunk driving accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, trip & fall, bicycle accident, or any other type of accident, now is the time to contact our firm for exceptional legal representation.
