Knowledgeable Orange County Personal Injury Dedicated to Helping Accident Victims Recover Fair Compensation for Their Injuries

Irvine is a city located in Orange County, California, with a population of well over 200,000 residents. It is the seventh-richest city in the United States among those with a population of 65,000 people or more. Irvine is divided into townships called villages, each of which was initially designed to have its own unique architectural theme. The city is home to UC Irvine, a branch of the University of California, which happens to be the city’s largest employer. All this to say, Irvine is a busy place, and accidents are common.

We represent clients who have been hurt in all types of accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, incidents of medical malpractice, as well as those involving defective products and poorly maintained property.

Irvine Personal Injury Cases

Most Irvine personal injury cases fall under the theory of negligence. In this context, “negligence” refers to a party’s failure to exercise the appropriate degree of care in a given situation. Reasonable care is defined as how a sensible or prudent person would have acted in the same situation. This is the standard for most ordinary personal injury cases, such as car accidents or slip and falls, but the standard of care is more specific in some contexts, such as in medical malpractice cases and other cases involving professional negligence.

The most common types of personal injury cases in Irvine include:

  • Car accidents,
  • Truck crashes,
  • Motorcycle accidents,
  • Dog bites,
  • Slip and falls,
  • Workplace accidents,
  • Construction accidents,
  • Rideshare accidents and
  • Accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists.

Pursuing a Medical Malpractice Claim in Irvine, CA

Medical malpractice is a type of professional negligence that occurs when a healthcare provider breaches the applicable standard of care when treating a patient. To establish the standard, the plaintiff must use expert testimony to demonstrate what a healthcare provider in good standing in the same specialty would have done in treating a similar patient.

As with other negligence cases, the defendant’s breach of this duty, or the actions that fell below the standard of care, must have been the direct cause of the victim’s harm. Under California law, a patient can file a medical malpractice claim up to one year after the injury is discovered or up to three years from the date that the injury took place. Statutes of limitations are somewhat different than in other personal injury cases, especially involving cases against government entities, such as some healthcare providers.

What Damages Are Available in an Irvine Personal Injury Case?

Two types of compensation usually will be available to a plaintiff who prevails in a negligence claim. Economic damages often include medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, property damage, lost wages, and other tangible costs arising from the accident. Non-economic damages include less easily defined forms of harm like pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and scarring or disfigurement. Since these damages are relatively subjective, it is important to enlist a capable attorney who can help show during settlement negotiations or at trial how severely your injuries have affected your life.
