Broken bones can occur in many different ways. They can be caused by accidents, falls, and sports injuries. As with any other injury, some situations can cause broken bones:
Construction workers fall off ladders or scaffolding, truck drivers get into accidents on the road, and factory workers suffer injuries while operating heavy machinery. These injuries are usually severe because they involve heavy machinery and large vehicles that can cause severe damage if they hit someone.
If you or a loved one was injured in an accident that resulted in broken bones, you must prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care and breached that duty by failing to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety. In addition to proving breach of duty, you must show that the breach caused some form of injury. This element is often known as causation – the actual link between the defendant’s actions and your injuries.
Also, California law states that the defendant should have foreseen the likelihood of causing harm. Lastly, the plaintiff must prove that they suffered actual damages due to the breach of duty.
If you’ve been in a car accident or injured due to someone else’s negligence, you must know your rights as a victim.
If you have been involved in an accident and are questioned by the insurance company, you have the right to refuse to answer. This is because the insurance adjuster is likely looking for an opportunity to use anything said against you – even a simple apology could be twisted to suggest that you admitted liability!
Victims injured in accidents have a right to pursue damages against the responsible party for their losses. This means that if someone hits your car while they are driving recklessly or texting while driving, causing you injury, they can be held financially responsible for your medical bills, lost income, and other expenses related to your injuries.
