Common Los Angeles Personal Injuries
There are a wide variety of injuries that accident victims can endure. Injuries can range from being minor to catastrophic and can even result in death. Below are the most common injuries experienced in the Los Angeles area.
- Brain injury: In one year over 2.8 million patients were admitted to the hospital due to a traumatic brain injury. Brain injuries can be an outcome of a slip and fall or more commonly a car accident. Symptoms of a brain injury can even present themselves as late as six months after the incident. Some signs of a traumatic an injury to the brain can be trouble remembering, mood swings or even constant migraines. It is strongly suggested by medical professionals that you visit a doctor to examine you after a car crash.
- Broken bones: Broken bones that an injury victim can sustain in an accident can be an arm fracture, a leg fracture or broken ribs. If right after the crash you feel like you can not move a body part without extreme pain then it is more than likely you have a fracture. Many people do not know that they have a broken bone after because they are still able to move, with little discomfort but they still have the ability to function. Indicators that you may have a broken bone can be swelling or bruising in one area of your body.
- Chipped teeth: When involved in a personal injury incident, you may think your teeth are the last body part to be effected. Loosing teeth or having chipped teeth after an accident is very typical occurrence though. The way in which accident victims can obtain injuries to their mouth is by hitting the steering wheel with great force or an airbag exploding in their face. In more serious cases teeth are not the only part of a mouth to be broken but a jaw can also be fractured as a result of a personal injury accident.
What is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury consists of an injury that is inflicted upon ones own body or mind and does not include damage to personal belongings. Injuries can range from minor scrapes and bruises to lacerations, fractures, poisoning, brain injuries, permanent disabilities and most other negative occurrences to your body in result of a sudden or prolonged situation. Personal injuries can result from accidents, negligence, wrong doing, criminal activity and many other situations. Depending on the amount of negligence involved, you will be compensated through a settlement or judgment, depending on if your case goes to trial.
Typically the 4 elements of a personal injury claim are;
- Duty to act in a reasonable manner
- Breaching the duty
- The breach caused you injury or harm
- You suffered financially because of the breach
Why Do I Need a Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer?
Understanding what's at stake with your personal injury case is important when deciding whether to hire an attorney or not. Taking on a personal injury case on your own, only to hire a lawyer later in the case can complicate your case even more so.

You wouldn't hire a divorce lawyer for a bankruptcy so it's best to hire an attorney who focuses his sole practice on your injury. For example, a car accident lawyer in Los Angeles will understand the streets, intersections and dangers associated with the area. It's a worthwhile effort to seek out legal care specifically qualified in your practice area of injury.
