Liability for Personal Injury Accidents
When one person’s negligence causes another person to suffer preventable injuries, the at-fault party may be legally responsible for the expenses, injuries, and suffering the victim experienced. This type of personal injury accident can occur in many ways. Some common personal injury accident types include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Dog bite incidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent security accidents
- Construction accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Wrongful death
Jacoby & Meyers Law Offices may also represent clients who were hurt in other ways due to another person’s bad behavior. To hold a person responsible in a personal injury case, we must prove negligence. Negligence occurs when there is a law or rule in place, the at-fault party ignores or violates the rule, and this leads to an incident or accident. The victims of that accident can then file a claim based on liability and seek compensation.
For example, property owners have a duty of care to ensure their guests are not at an unreasonable risk of injury. If a customer trips on a torn carpet because the owner did not repair the issue, the property owner may be responsible for the injuries and related losses the customer suffers.
If we represent this fall victim, we will collect evidence and file a claim based on the property owner’s liability insurance policy. We will use the evidence to prove the case and negotiate for a just settlement with the liability insurance provider.
Developing a Case for Holding the At-Fault Party Accountable
A Norwalk personal injury lawyer from Jacoby & Meyers Law Offices can gather evidence and develop a strong case for compensation. Protecting accident victims like you since 1972, we focus on the services we can provide to our clients and the representation we can offer throughout the claims process.
We keep our clients informed of any developments in their case, the progress of their claim, and other new information. There are always open lines of communication so that they can ask us questions or discuss their concerns.
We can assign liability and determine what happened and why it led to your injuries. We will also identify and catalog your injuries, losses, expenses, and future needs related to the incident. This allows us to know what damages to seek and the potential value of your case. Using this value, we will seek a payout that fairly compensates you.

Recovering Damages in a Personal Injury Case
Jacoby & Meyers Law Offices files liability insurance claims for our clients and seeks out-of-court settlements from the insurance company representing the negligent party. These recoveries may compensate our clients for their damages, including past and future medical care costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering. We can also file a lawsuit if the insurance company refuses a just settlement agreement.
Our team also helps our clients by filing their property damage claims, if applicable in their case. This most commonly includes vehicle repairs following a collision but may include other personal items broken in an incident, such as eyeglasses or a cell phone broken in a fall.
When the victim of a personal injury accident dies from their injuries, certain family members may qualify to file wrongful death lawsuits per California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §377.60. We handle these cases based on contingency, as well.
There is a time limit on filing personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. In general, if we do not begin this process within two years, CCP §335.1 may prevent us from doing so. Reach out to us early so that we can get to work with time to collect relevant evidence and attempt an out-of-court settlement.
