Many innocent San Fernando Valley residents are injured in accidents that are not their fault but, for one reason or another, they fail to reach out to an experienced injury attorney to discuss their legal rights and potential financial compensation. How do you know when your injuries warrant a call to a personal injury attorney?
The short answer is this: if you have suffered a personal injury, you should contact a personal injury attorney.
Common types of personal injury accidents include the following:
- Car Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Hit and Run Accidents
- Uninsured Driver Accidents
- Slip-and-Fall Accidents
- Dog Bites
This list is not exhaustive. If you have been injured by another person or business’s negligence or carelessness, you may have a legal claim.
