Car Accidents

Serving the people of Fontana, the most common personal injury claims we see are car accidents. With Southern California traffic being as congested as it is, it is no surprise.

There are many things to remember when you have been in a car accident; the first thing to do is remain calm and do not confront the other driver(s) in a combative manner. This can be used against you and will likely lead to the insurance company denying your claim.

Below is a list of things to do after you have been in a car accident:

  • Check yourself and your passengers for injuries;
  • When it is safe, get out of your car and make sure the other people involved are okay;
  • Exchange the following information with them:
    • Insurance information;
    • Name;
    • Phone numbers;
    • Drivers license
  • Take pictures of the scene of the accident as well as the damage done to your car and any injuries you and/or your passengers incur;
  • Contact the police to have them come down to the scene of the accident.
    • This will be extremely important because they will not only get your statement and the statements of others involved but they can also get statements from any witnesses to the accident;
    • The responding officer will also be able to help determine who was at-fault in the car accident;
  • Note: if someone is seriously injured, contact emergency services to the scene right away. Do not try to treat anyone unless you are formally trained to do so.

We know this can be a lot to remember, especially in the moments directly after an accident. When you are needing someone who will advocate for you after an accident that has left you and/or your family members injured, contact a car accident lawyer at Silverthorne Attorneys today! Consultations are free!

Dog Bite Related Injuries

After a person is bitten by a dog, a dog bite lawyer will evaluate what could have prevented the incident in the first place. Whether that be looking into the history of the animal to see if they have a history of biting or even if the owners have a record of some sort.

If the wound becomes infected and you need surgery or need to be hospitalized for your injuries, you deserve compensation that will not only pay for your medical bills, but will also look into any future ramifications. Whether that be further surgeries or even loss of potential earnings; we will make sure the responsible party will pay for their negligence.

Food Poisoning

Every year, more than 3 million people in the United States suffer from food poisoning, and approximately 70 percent of these victims are harmed by a restaurant’s food. However, numerous studies have shown that less than 2 percent of individuals who experience food poisoning will request compensation.

If a foodborne illness affects a client, personal injury attorneys can obtain a list of dishes that the victim ordered and evaluate the likelihood that certain foods contain harmful bacteria. Sometimes, injury lawyers may receive reports from other patrons who were negatively affected by the potentially toxic food.

When a bodily injury lawyer obtains a sample of the dish, the plaintiff attorney may be able to determine whether or not the food was undercooked. By evaluating the recipe and the restaurant’s instructions, plaintiff lawyers can sometimes find mistakes that could augment the risk of food poisoning.

Slips and Falls

Numerous factors can cause a person to unexpectedly fall; some of these include wet floors, objects that have fallen in a hallway, cracks in the cement, steps that are uneven or wires that are on the ground. Additionally, faulty ladders commonly precipitate falls that may be initially blamed on the client. According to one analysis, less than 10 percent of construction companies thoroughly inspect their ladders at least once per month.

If an individual falls, our injury attorneys may examine pictures of the property and analyze actions that could have caused the fall. An injury lawyer can also determine whether or not the property’s owner was aware of the risk.
