Elements of an Buena Park Personal Injury Case

Numerous personal injury lawsuits in Buena Park may revolve around a negligence theory. Although the precise elements of your negligence claim will vary depending on the nature of the accident and your injuries, the following are the fundamental elements of a negligence claim in California:

  • Defendant owed you a duty of care;
  • Defendant breached the duty of care by acting negligently;
  • Defendant’s negligence caused your injury; and
  • You suffered damages as a result of the injury.

Certain personal injury cases in Buena Park may be founded on the concept of strict liability. In such cases, the plaintiff is not required to prove the defendant’s negligence. Instead, the plaintiff typically only needs to demonstrate that they suffered harm, and that the defendant is closely linked to the circumstances that led to the harm. Strict liability often applies to cases like dog bites and product defects.

In some personal injury situations, initiating an insurance claim, such as an auto insurance claim following a collision, may be the initial step. Depending on your specific situation, an insurance claim might be adequate to address your losses, or you may need to pursue a personal injury lawsuit with the guidance of your attorney.

What Damages Can I Expect in a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Buena Park?

In Buena Park personal injury cases, plaintiffs in personal injury lawsuits typically seek two types of compensatory damages under California law.

  • Economic damages, which compensate for direct financial losses like lost wages or medical bills; and
  • Non-economic damages, which compensate for subjective losses like a person’s pain or suffering.

Compensatory damages in Buena Park are designed to offer compensation for a plaintiff’s losses. In specific, restricted scenarios, a plaintiff may have the option to pursue punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages are meant to penalize the defendant for particularly egregious and severely harmful actions.
