CATASTROPHIC INJURIES AS A RESULT OF AN ACCIDENT

PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS IN SOLANO COUNTY

ATTORNEYS HELPING VICTIMS OF COMPLETE OR PARTIAL PARALYSIS

Spinal cord injuries can vary significantly. In the worst cases, spinal cord injuries could lead to complete paralysis. Paralysis is the loss of function of the muscles in a part of your body. Not only is this emotionally devastating but could add a lot of financial complications for you and your family. If you or a loved one is suffering from complete or partial paralysis, you need to contact an experienced Vallejo CA personal injury lawyer who can work with you to get compensation to pay for the medical bills, ongoing health care costs, rehabilitation, lost wages and emotional distress.

Types of Paralysis

Spinal cord injuries can be classified as either complete or incomplete and can cause different types of paralysis:

  • Hemiplegia – paralysis that occurs in one side of the body
  • Diplegia – paralysis that occurs in both sides of the body
  • Paraplegia – paralysis in the lower part of the body
  • Quadriplegia – paralysis in both arms and legs

Complete injuries are those that result in no muscle control or sensation below the area of the spinal cord that was injured. Incomplete injuries are those that result in only partial paralysis below the injured area. The severity of the paralysis is dependent on the location of the injury. Typically, paralysis occurs downward from the point of the injury or trauma to the spinal cord but paralysis can also cause a lot of secondary issues such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Depression
  • Bladder and bowel control problems
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Skin issues

Victim of paralysis will most likely need a lifetime of additional care, making medical bills extremely costly. If you or someone you know is suffering from paralysis, you must contact a lawyer who can get you the maximum compensation you deserve.

Damages Recoverable in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Because spinal cord injuries are much more severe than other injuries, you may be entitled to more compensation than in other personal injury cases. The specific amount will be dependent on a number of factors but in most cases, the plaintiff is able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills – These are not capped in California so you can receive compensation for past and future bills.
  • Pain and suffering – Noneconomic damages such as pain, suffering, mental or emotional anguish are hard to measure. The cap on noneconomic damages in California is $250,000.
  • Lost wages – In most cases, paralysis means the victim is unable to work and provide for themselves and family.
  • Punitive damages – These are only awarded when the defendant acted with fraud, malice or intent to cause injuries.

Liability in Personal Injury Cases

In most cases, to recover compensation for paralysis, you would need to establish the theory of negligence in the responsible party. This may be the driver of a car, the manufacturer or a defective product, a property owner, or even the government. Every case is different and it requires an experienced Dixon personal injury attorney who can help you receive compensation during such a devastating time in your life.

    Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled.

BURN INJURIES

SACRAMENTO PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer

A fire or burn injury can be devastating both physically and emotionally.

But many people do not believe that fires or burns are something that can happen to them. Numerous fires and resulting burn injuries, including death, occur each year across the United States. In fact, statistics reveal that every 19 seconds a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States. Those most vulnerable to suffer injury or death in a fire are children younger than 5 and adults over 65.

Fires have many causes including defective products and improperly maintained property. In addition to causing irreplaceable property loss, fires can also cause burn injuries that are disfiguring, painful, and even deadly. The United States has the highest rate of fire-related deaths in the developed world. If a manufacturer creates a defective product or if a property owner is negligent in the maintenance of the premises and that negligence results in a fire, those parties can be held responsible for burn injuries sustained.

If you have been burned or injured in a fire contact Sacramento personal injury lawyer at The Choyce Law Firm to protect your legal rights. Consultation is free and there is never a fee until we win.

Fire kills more Americans each year than all other forms of natural disaster combined. More than 80% of all fire deaths occur in the home. In 2004, the National Fire Protection Association reported there was a home fire every 79 seconds in the United States, and in 2003, a home fire death occurred every 170 minutes. Over $12.3 billion in property damage occurred last year as a result of fires.

The consumer products most commonly associated with fires include:

  • Wood and coal burning stoves and fireplaces
  • Kerosene heaters
  • Gas-fired space heaters
  • Portable electric heaters
  • Cooking equipment
  • Cigarette lighters and matches
  • Upholstered furniture
  • Mattresses and bedding
  • Clothing
  • Flammable liquids

Common causes of California fire injuries and deaths include careless smoking, disrepair and misuse of heating equipment, and accidents while cooking. Use of alternate heat sources such as space heaters or electric blankets increases the chances of starting a fire, especially if these items are not maintained or operated properly.

If you have been burned or injured in a fire contact Sacramento personal injury lawyer at The Choyce Law Firm to protect your legal rights. Consultation is free and there is never a fee until we win.

A burn is a devastating and extremely painful injury. A burn injury can be caused by a variety of agents, such as heat, chemicals, electricity, or sunlight. Scalds, building fires, flammable liquids, and gases cause the most common serious burns.

Burns are classified based upon severity of damage to the skin and are divided into three categories:

  • First-degree burns affect only the outer layer (called the epidermis) of the skin.
  • Second-degree burns damage the epidermis and the layer beneath it (called the dermis).
  • Third-degree burns involve damage or destruction of all layers of the skin and damage to underlying tissues. People who experience such burns often require skin grafting.
  • The swelling and blistering associated with burns is caused by the loss of fluid from damaged blood vessels. In severe cases this fluid loss can cause shock, requiring the burn victim to need an immediate blood or salt solution transfusion to restore adequate fluid levels in order to maintain blood pressure.

If you have been burned or injured in a fire contact Sacramento personal injury lawyer at The Choyce Law Firm to protect your legal rights. Consultation is free and there is never a fee until we win.

According to the American Burn Association (www.ameriburn.org), each year in the United States, 1.1 million burn injuries require medical attention, and that’s just the beginning. Approximately 50,000 of those with burn injuries require hospitalization, and roughly half of those burn patients are admitted to a specialized burn unit. Each year, approximately 4,500 burn-injury victims die. Up to 10,000 people in the United States die every year of burn-related infections; pneumonia is the most common infectious complication among hospitalized burn patients.

The most common complications suffered by a burn injury victim include:

  • Scarring
  • Cosmetic deformity
  • Sepsis (the presence of bacteria or their toxins in the blood or tissues)
  • Adult respiratory distress syndrome
  • Death

Twenty years ago, burns covering half the body were routinely fatal. Today, patients with burns covering 90% of the body can survive, but they often suffer permanent injury. Contributing to the improved survival rate are advances in resuscitation, wound cleaning and follow-up care, nutritional support, and infection control. Grafting with natural or artificial materials can also aid the healing process. Victims who have suffered a burn injury often need to recover from not just the devastating physical affects but the emotional trauma as well.

CATASTROPHIC INJURIES: LOSS OF SIGHT

FAIRFIELD PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

Fairfield Personal Injury Lawyer

PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER HELPS VICTIMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSED SIGHT LOSS

Accidents can cause all sorts of injuries including loss of sight. If you’ve been involved in an accident that compromised your vision, you have the right to make a claim for damages. By contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer, you can come one step closer to seeking compensation for any suffering you or your family endured.

Causes of Eye Injuries

Many types of accidents could lead to injuries that cause loss of sight. Some of the most common reasons for eyesight problems are:

  • Head trauma
  • Sharp objects
  • Particles in eyes
  • Bright lights
  • Chemicals
  • Electric shock
  • Automobile accidents
  • Defective devices such as airbags
  • Medical malpractice such as LASIK surgery
  • Contact lens solution

Sometimes the vision can be saved with immediate treatment, but sometimes it can have life-altering repercussions that affect your livelihood and the livelihood of others.

Seeking Compensation

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious eye injury, it’s important you have your case evaluated by a skilled personal injury lawyer. No case is ever the same. Some injuries can come from industrial accidents, some by car accidents, or defective products. Whatever the circumstance, a lawyer will need to evaluate it and give your best options.

When an accident is the cause of negligence, liability must be proven, which can be tricky depending on the circumstances. If you are contacted directly by an insurance company with a settlement, do not accept the offer until you consult with a lawyer. Very often, the settlement offer is well below what will require your expenses or what you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Some of the compensation you can be entitled to are:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Physical, occupation or vocational rehabilitation
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Noneconomic elements
  • More

The best thing to do is contact a personal injury lawyer who can represent you and get the maximum compensation you deserve.

CATASTROPHIC INJURIES: LOSS OF HEARING

ACCIDENT ATTORNEY IN DIXON

Accident Attorney in Dixon

INJURY ATTORNEY HELPS VICTIMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSED HEARING LOSS

Loss of hearing is a devastating and life-altering injury. If you or someone you know suffered an injury that resulted in a loss of hearing, contact a skilled personal injury attorney to fight back and get the compensation you deserve. The inability to hear properly can not only impact your work life, but also your social life. The feeling of going from hearing everything to hearing nothing because of an injury is a frightening feeling, especially if the cause was due to someone else’s avoidable actions! Accident attorney in Dixon can help you through this emotional time and get you compensation for pain and suffering you and your family experienced.

How Does a Hearing Loss Injury Occur

A hearing loss can be a result of many different types of accidents such as:

  • Severe blow to the head
  • Work related accidents
  • Motorcycle and automobile accidents
  • Explosions
  • Defective Products

Often, hearing loss is work-related. For example, an employer using machinery or devices that emit loud noises can cause hearing damage. In a situation like this, the employer may be liable for damages. There are some medical procedures and operations that could increase your level of hearing after any type of loss, however, these treatments are usually very expensive. Contacting an experienced accident attorney in Dixon can make sure you receive compensation for such treatments.

Typically, hearing loss injuries result from:

  • A prolonged exposure to overy-loud noises
  • Injuries to the head during an accident
  • Exposure to a sudden, extremely loud noise

Contact our injury attorney if you’ve suffered hearing loss from any of those injuries.

Keep in mind that in order to receive compensation and have a strong case, the victim must have suffered from an event in one that he or she did not willingly submit to. That means, for example, if you went to a fireworks show and then became hard of hearing, you cannot file a personal injury lawsuit and seek compensation for your injury. Every case is different and only a skilled personal injury attorney can advise you in your situation. Contact our injury attorney if you’ve suffered hearing loss from an accident.

CATASTROPHIC INJURIES: BURNS & SCARRING

PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER IN VACAVILLE CA

personal injury lawyer in Vacaville CA

HELPING VICTIMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSED SERIOUS INJURIES

Severe burn injuries almost always lead to extensive scarring which is not only emotional but can be painful as well. Worse, it could lead to permanent disfigurement. If you have suffered burns or severe scarring from auto accidents, construction site accidents or any other type of accident, contact a personal injury lawyer in Vacaville CA for a free consultation as you may be entitled for financial compensation. Damages that are awarded are to compensate current and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and for the impact the injury has had on your life and the life of your family.

Types of Burns and Scars

The damages you receive depend on the type of burn you suffered. There are three different classifications of burns:

  • First degree – the least serious of the classifications and only affects the outer layer of the skin
  • Second degree – this type of burn penetrates beyond the first layer of skin into the dermis layer, which is the second layer of skin
  • Third degree – these are the most serious types of burns as it affects all layers of the skin and can even damage the underlying tissue

Scarring is an essential part of the healing process of a burn. Damage to the outer layer is healed by rebuilding the tissue of the skin. When the damage the tissue beneath the skin, healing becomes more complicated and leads to different types of scars:

  • Keloid scars – these scars result from an overgrowth of tissue and are generally red or pink but can darken over time. These scars typically expand beyond the site of the injury.
  • Hypertrophic scars – these scars look like keloid scars but do not go beyond the location of the injury
  • Contractures – these develop when normally elastic skin becomes inelastic due to a serious burn injury

The type and severity of the scar depends on many factors such as location and genetics. No scar or injury is ever the same and it’s important you talk to a skilled personal injury lawyer in Vacaville CA who can look at your case and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.

Available Compensation

As with any personal injury lawsuit, it is difficult to make an accurate prediction of what the settlement will turn out to be. Burn injuries tend to have higher settlement value due to the pain and permanent scarring but only a skilled and experienced lawyer will be able to get you the maximum compensation.

No burn injury is ever the same because they could occur in a variety of accidents such as:

  • Hot coffee
  • Chemical exposure
  • Electrical fires
  • Construction accidents
  • Car fires and car accidents
  • Road rash
  • Explosions related to truck accidents
  • Warehouse fires and explosions
  • Other serious accidents

And within each accident there are a multitude of factors that take into play. Because of that, it is a good idea to consult with a personal injury attorney. If the defendant acted intentionally or very negligently, the burn victim may be able to receive punitive damages which are meant to punish the defendant. The defendant must not only compensate for the physical pain of the burn but also the emotional pain the victim has suffered.

The psychological impact of scars is severe. Not only do scars impact the way we look at ourselves but it also impacts the way others perceive us. Additionally, scars serve as a constant reminder of the trauma the victim endured. If you or a loved one has suffered the devastating effects of a serious burn injury, don’t wait to talk to a personal injury lawyer in Vacaville CA.

INJURY LAWYER HELPS VICTIMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSED BADLY BROKEN BONES OR CRUSHED JOINTS

There are many different types of accidents that could cause broken bones or crushed joints. Each case is different and the factors that will determine the settlement will vary. It’s always best to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer who can evaluate your case and guide you through the process.

Fortunately, for the most part, broken bones are not life-threatening and usually heal with time. However, broken bones can affect the victim and the victim’s family in many other ways such as:

  • High medical bills associated with treatment
  • Temporary disablement or immobilization
  • Lost wages for having to be out of work during the healing process
  • Complications leading to ongoing chronic pain
  • In addition, insurance companies and medical providers often overwhelm the victims with complicated paperwork and obstacles. Having an experienced injury lawyer can relieve you of the complications and enable you to direct your attention to healing.

Types of Broken Bones

One of the most important factors in any personal injury case is evidence. When it comes to a broken bone or fracture, there is no question that the injury took place. Having an x-ray will make your settlement a lot easier but there are still other factors that are involved. Valuing the case involves examining how bad the injury is.

There are a few different categories your injury can fall into:

  • Open Broken Bone Injuries: This is when a bone breaks the skin’s surface. It has the additional risk of a deep bone infection called osteomyelitis which could be acute or chronic and is caused by infectious germs.
  • Closed Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bones break but do not cause a hole in the outer skin. They are also referred to as simple fractures.
  • Displaced Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bone snaps into one or more pieces and moves out of its normal positioning.
  • Non-displaced Broken Bone Injuries: This is where the bone cracks but does not move or break.
  • Greenstick Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the bone has been bent because of trauma but has not broken. It is more common in children.
  • Transverse Broken Bone Injuries: This is when the break is at a right angle to the bone.
  • Linear Broken Bone Injuries: This is the opposite of a transverse injury.

There are many different types of bone injuries and only a medical examiner can properly identify which category your injury falls into. Severe bone injuries could be caused by a car, bus, motorcycle, truck, defective products, medical malpractice and many other accidents that involve a negligent party acting irresponsibly. If someone was acting negligent and caused you to suffer a severe bone injury, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact a personal injury lawyer for help.

    This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!

    Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.

    “This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him. Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!”
