What Is Considered Personal Injury in California?

Personal injury or tort law is a legal framework intended to compensate those who have suffered physical, emotional, or financial damages due to someone else’s negligence. At Callahan & Blaine, we have experience handling several types of complex personal injury claims, including the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Product liability
  • Brain injuries
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Spinal injuries
  • Wrongful death

Whether your claim involves one person, multiple parties, or large corporations, we have the skill, knowledge, and resources to conduct a detailed investigation and develop an effective strategy.

Elements of a Los Angeles Personal Injury Claim

California is an at-fault state, which means personal injury victims must seek compensation through the liable party’s insurance. Therefore, developing a strong claim that identifies a liable party, demonstrates their negligence, and shows the damages you suffered is essential. Our skilled Los Angeles personal injury lawyers help you establish these elements and achieve just compensation.


To establish negligence, your claim must prove the following four points:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care.
  • They breached this duty and acted negligently.
  • This negligence directly caused the accident and your injuries.
  • Your injuries resulted in damages.

We gather evidence, like medical bills, police reports, video footage, and witness testimony, to clearly prove fault and hold the negligent party accountable. In personal injury claims involving defective products or extremely hazardous activities, the responsible party may be liable regardless of fault.


Personal injuries can impact all aspects of your life, so we consider every detail when presenting your case. Depending on the severity of your injuries and details of your claim, you may recover costs of the following:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Property damage
  • Prescribed medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress

We thoroughly assess your injuries and how they have impacted your life to determine your claim’s worth. We understand your injuries can have long-term effects, so we include these losses in your claim to help you achieve fair compensation.
