What Is Civil Litigation?
Whenever you discuss a lawsuit between two parties, you are discussing civil litigation. Civil court is designed to financially compensate people who have been harmed by another’s negligence. This harm can be physical, financial, or property-related.
Civil lawsuits involve a plaintiff, the person filing the lawsuit, and a defendant, the person being sued. The plaintiff’s job is to prove by a “preponderance of the evidence” that the defendant is guilty of negligence, and that negligence directly harmed the plaintiff. The court must be at least 51% certain of the plaintiff’s claims to rule in their favor.
When you’ve suffered from someone’s negligence, you’ve experienced damage. Therefore, a civil reward is often called “damages.” Damages are designed to pay you back for your suffering. This payback can come in the form of “economic” damages, where you are directly repaid for the money you spent. You could also be entitled to “non-economic” damages, compensated for your pain and suffering.
Personal Injury Litigation
Being injured by someone’s negligence is a harrowing experience. First, you must tend to your immediate, physical needs. Recovery can take months or even years. You may require multiple surgeries just to function, and you could still end up with a lifelong disability.
If that weren’t enough, injuries greatly impact your finances. Medical costs are expensive, and even the most minor of injuries can cost thousands of dollars to treat. Treatment for catastrophic injuries can be over one million dollars in the first year alone.
When insurance benefits aren’t enough to cover your bills, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit to simply stay financially afloat. This legal action could reimburse all your medical costs. You could also retrieve income you missed during recovery. You may also be able to receive money for your pain and suffering.
Trust Attorney Diamond to help you with this process. With care and compassion, he is ready to stand by your side and take the fight to those who wronged you.
Defective Product Lawsuits
You can use a product safely, as intended, and still be injured by it. When this happens, you have been victimized by a defective product.
Manufacturers can be guilty of releasing defective products in several ways. In court, you can accuse them of a manufacturing error, defective design, or mislabeled product. In a manufacturing error, something goes wrong during the production of the product, making it dangerous. A product with a defective design is built correctly, but its very design poses a threat to consumers. When companies mislabel their merchandise, they are aware of unexpected dangers within the item and fail to warn their customers.
If you’ve been hurt by a defective product, Law Offices of David D. Diamond is here to hold negligent companies accountable for their dangerous merchandise.
Car Accident Injury Lawsuits
Technically, California is a no-fault state. This means that in a vehicle accident, each drivers’ insurance company handles their individual benefits. However, if the cost of your injuries outweighs your insurance benefits, you may be able to take the matter to court.
Drivers can be negligent in a variety of ways. Often, they are guilty of ignoring traffic laws. They speed, roll through stop signs, ignore traffic lights, and so on. A driver could be guilty of reckless driving, taking unnecessary risks and endangering others. Sometimes they drive distracted – eating, texting, or playing with the radio when they should be paying attention to the road. Tragically, many drivers still take the wheel when they’ve had too many drinks, with disastrous results.
If you’ve been hurt by another driver’s negligent behavior, allow our lawyer to review your case. You may be entitled to damages. Attorney Diamond can work with insurance companies to negotiate a greater benefit. If the company refuses to cooperate, our lawyer can help you seek justice through civil litigation.
