Negligence Case 101: When You Might Need a Lawyer

Can I benefit from having a personal injury lawyer? My neighbor’s dog bit me, now what? I fell and broke my leg at the grocery store, what do I do now? What is a negligence claim? These are all questions that might be floating through your mind if you have suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence.

An injury can quickly become an overwhelming burden and financial hardship.  The Yau Law Firm has represented numerous clients who have suffered injuries including auto accidents, slip and falls, and dog bites. Our clients have the benefit of not just legal representation, but with reassuring guidance through each step of the process toward recovery. The types of injuries, how they happen and the circumstances of each case are all as unique as the needs of the people we represent.

A classic example of a car accident injury case looks like this:  a driver has the duty to drive their vehicle safely, but they breach that duty while they are texting on their cell phone and rear end your vehicle.  As a result of that collision you suffer back pain, and as proof of that injury your doctor reports that you now have a bulging disk that will require numerous weeks of treatment. Far too often this exact scenario happens; the National Safety Council estimates that at least 1.6 million auto accidents are the result of distracted driving from drivers using their cell phones and texting.

You may not know which laws apply to your case, what you are entitled to, insurance claims can become complicated, and medical bills pile up. Simply having to attend your doctor appointments and rest during your recovery can take away from your job. Having a lawyer on your side can help you manage this process, ensure that each medical bill will be addressed, insurance claims will be made, and compensation for your injury will be paid.
