  • Improper treatment 
  • Pharmacy errors 
  • Medication mistakes 
  • Birth injury 
  • Failure to diagnose serious health conditions such as cancer

These are complex cases and should be left for an expert personal injury lawyer to deal with. 

Wrongful Death 

Wrongful death is death due to someone’s carelessness. You have the right to file a lawsuit to claim compensation. These deaths occur due to medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, car and truck crashes, airplane accidents, construction accidents, or use of a dangerous or defective productive. You can hire an Oxnard personal injury lawyer to determine and claim compensation. 

Workplace Accident 

Injury or death can occur in the workplace. The injured employee can initiate a personal injury claim to get proper compensation. There are laws in place to protect the rights of temporarily and permanently disabled workers. You need to hire a lawyer to determine and get compensation and cover costs related to medical bills, loss of wages, and more. 

Premises Liability 

Sometimes defective and dangerous conditions on someone’s place can cause accidents. This type of accident can occur anywhere including public or private swimming pools, your neighbor’s house, malls, and retail stores, gas stations, restaurants, and grocery stores or any other commercial property. Slipping on a wet floor, tripping over an obstacle, falling down a staircase with no handrails and a lot of dangerous conditions can lead to premises liability. 

Products Liability 

Using defective and dangerous products can cause injuries at work, in public places, and in the home. Improper warnings and operation manuals, dangerous drugs, foods, defective vehicle parts, medical devices, chemicals and toxic materials, children’s products, and many other consumer’s products can cause injuries and even death. A business, individual, government or any other responsible parties have to provide you with compensation.
