Personal injuries, within a legal context, refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
The three grounds on which you can file a personal injury claim are:
- 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 you or others.

Accidents that might cause personal injuries include the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are the most frequent reason given by residents of Sherman Oaks for personal injuries sustained. Typical causes resulting in car accidents include speeding, driving under the influence, fatigue, improper turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.
Truck Accidents – Large trucks are less maneuverable than other vehicles on the road. Truck accidents often occur when a truck is unable to stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid another vehicle or pedestrian. According to statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), about 97% of vehicle occupants killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck are occupants of the passenger vehicles.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is a pleasant and economical way of traveling in Sherman Oaks. Unfortunately, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher chance of being badly insured if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists often don’t pay enough attention to motorcycles on the road.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are a popular alternative to conventional public transport systems to get you from A to B. And if you’re planning on meeting friends or family in Sherman Oaks for drinks, it’s not safe to drink and drive. But that doesn’t mean using a ride-hailing service is always a safe way to travel. As more and more people use ride-hailing services, the number of Uber and Lyft accidents increases.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO) show that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Every year residents in Sherman Oaks suffer injuries from slip and fall accidents. The main reasons include walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
