Other Accidents Our San Diego Personal Injury Attorneys Handle
Accident cases that result in injuries do not always involve truck, car and motorcycle accidents. When people or entities are negligent, other types of accidents may result. Strict liability may also come into play in certain cases. Our San Diego Personal Injury Attorneys have substantial experience in handling all types of injury claims, including the following claims.
Dog Bite Cases
When dogs attack people, they can cause devastating injuries and death. Dog owners in California are strictly liable to pay damages when their dogs bite others who are lawfully on private property or while they are on public property.
Slip and Fall Accidents
When the negligence of the owner or operator of a property that you are visiting results in your slipping or tripping and falling, you may be able to recover damages to compensate you for your resulting losses. Our San Jose personal injury attorneys can review your potential claim and offer you an honest evaluation of its winnability. Slip and fall accidents commonly happen in businesses, at swimming pools, in retail stores, in restaurants, at construction sites and in any location that is left with an uncorrected hazardous condition.
Introduced as a substitute for cigarettes, vape pens or e-cigarettes have exploded in popularity in the last decade. Unfortunately, some of these devices have also exploded and injured or killed people. Vape pen explosions may cause serious burns and scarring. These accidents may happen when people are using the devices or charging them and may result from defects. Our lawyers know how to investigate cases involving exploding vape pens so that our clients can recover damages from all of the parties who were involved in bringing the defective product to the market.
Bicycle accidents have increased in San Jose as more people are choosing to ride bikes as a means of transportation and as a healthy recreational activity. Bicyclists have the same rights as motorists in most cases. When a motorist collides with a bicyclist, the police may not always realize that the cyclists also have rights to take the lane, for example. Our experienced personal injury lawyers understand the rights that bicyclists have and are able to help to build cases that clearly show the liability of the motorists so that our clients can recover the compensation to which they are entitled.
Electric Scooter Accidents
Electric scooters have become very popular in the Bay Area as a fast and environmentally friendly way to quickly get around. With the entry of electric scooter fleet owners such as Bird and Lime, electric scooters can be seen zipping everywhere in San Jose. Unfortunately, these scooters pose hazards to both the riders of the scooters as well as pedestrians and cyclists who may be around them. Our San Jose personal injury lawyers are able to review what happened in electric scooter accidents to identify all of the potentially liable parties so that our clients can recover damages for their losses.
Just like motor vehicle drivers, boat operators also must follow the laws when they are operating their watercraft on the rivers and lakes, the San Francisco Bay and in the Pacific Ocean. Our attorneys are very knowledgeable about the rules and laws that apply to boat and watercraft operators and are able to help injured victims and the families of those who have been killed to recover the compensation that they deserve.
