A personal injury attorney at Cohen & Marzban can explain what damages you might be entitled to claim based on your unique case and circumstances.
In a legal context, personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
There are three grounds for a personal injury lawsuit, namely:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission (failure to act) by the other party that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others.

Accidents that might cause personal injuries include the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are one of the main reasons residents of Monterey Park sustain personal injuries. Typical causes include speeding, driving under the influence, tiredness, wrong turning, aggressive driving, and distracted driving.
Truck Accidents – Trucks are typically less maneuverable than other vehicles on the road. A large truck weighing significantly more than your car is often unable to stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid an accident.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is a fun and economical way of commuting in Monterey Park. However, as a rider or passenger, you have a higher risk of suffering serious or even lethal injuries if you are involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists often don’t pay enough attention to motorcycles on the road, until it is too late.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, have become a popular and convenient way of traveling in Monterey Park. However, that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a safe way to travel. As the number of people using ride-hailing services increases, so do the number of Uber and Lyft accidents.
Slip and Fall Accidents – According to the World Health Organization (WHO), falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. And Monterey Park has its fair share of slip and fall accidents. Reasons typically include walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
