Personal Injury

Bakersfield Personal Injury Lawyer

Accidents are an unfortunate part of life. Here in Bakersfield, CA, we have our share of car accidents, hit and runs, premises liabilities, wrongful deaths, and dog bites. As cell phone usage has increased, we have seen a rise in roadway accidents caused by distracted driving, even though other drivers on the road have a responsibility to drive safely. By the same token, the owners of the stores where you shop have a duty to avoid negligent behavior, but unfortunately, they sometimes fail to uphold that duty, leading to severe injuries and, in the worst cases, death. Dog owners also owe it to others to keep their dogs from injuring others, but oftentimes, that does not happen.

Residents of Bakersfield often face dangerous situations that lead to injuries impacting their physical, emotional, and financial well-being. You will likely face intensive doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, surgeries, and immense pain when you get hurt. Coping with a severe injury is emotionally and physically draining. You may feel depressed, anxious, angry, or traumatized. You may also find yourself with many unexpected bills and lost wages, putting a financial strain on you and your family.

When someone else causes your injury, a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer at Colvin Accident Lawyers could help you get financial compensation for your losses. Call a dedicated attorney today to get started on your case

What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Just as drivers have a responsibility to drive safely and maintain adequate insurance, property owners have a responsibility to maintain the safety of their land here in California. If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another, you may have a personal injury case. Whether you’ve suffered a slip-and-fall or were injured due to a poorly maintained structure, a personal injury attorney can help you determine if you have a strong case to pursue. Attorney Donald Colvin will work on your behalf to receive the maximum reimbursement owed to you for your personal injury and to hold the other party responsible.

The goal of a civil suit for a personal injury is to make the plaintiff financially whole by demanding the at-fault party pay for the plaintiff’s injuries, pain, and suffering. The court examines whether a reasonable person would have acted differently and taken steps to prevent the injury. When a lawsuit is successful, the injured party receives monetary damages to help them pay for their losses or other expenses resulting from the accident. Dedicated attorneys in Bakersfield have many years of experience helping people navigate complex legal claims involving personal injuries
