Legal Options for Injured People in Ontario, CA
If you are left permanently disabled after an accident, you can suffer from serious hardships. You may need to pay for thousands of dollars in medical care, accommodations to your home and vehicle, and mobility equipment. The physical and psychological impact of the disability can be challenging to cope with.
In these situations, you could recover compensation to pay for these losses by filing an insurance claim or lawsuit. Depending on the cause of your accident, you could pursue many pathways to justice, such as the following.
- Workers’ Compensation Claims: Many disabling injuries occur at work. If you are injured on the job, you can file a workers’ compensation claim and recover benefits for medical expenses, wage replacement, and long-term disability payments. All California employers are required to provide this coverage.
- Civil Lawsuits as a Private Citizen: If you were injured due to someone else’s negligent actions, you could file a lawsuit against the person responsible for your injury. Liable parties may include landlords, motor vehicle drivers, or private companies. You can even file product liability lawsuits against manufacturers of defective products. An attorney can help you identify the correct defendant.
- Civil Lawsuits as an Employee: Filing for workers’ compensation prevents you from pursuing a lawsuit against your employer unless your case meets certain criteria. However, you could file a lawsuit as an employee if your case involves a negligent third party. For example, if you are assaulted and injured by a subcontractor, you could file a lawsuit against a third party.
