A personal injury occurs when someone suffers an injury, either physical or psychological, as a result of an accident. In order to obtain compensation for injuries, many personal injury matters are pursued under the law of negligence, if the injury results from another’s carelessness. Every person has a responsibility to conduct themselves like a reasonable person to protect others from harm. If someone’s acts or omissions are negligent and cause harm to someone, the negligent person can be held responsible in our civil justice system.
When an injury occurs due to the fault of someone other than the injured person, the injured person may be entitled to monetary compensation, called damages from the person who caused the injury. Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage and pain and suffering.
Regardless of the severity of your injury, if you were injured due to someone else’s negligence, you can seek financial compensation. We also handle personal injury cases which arise out of another person’s intentional wrongdoing or recklessness such as assault or battery claims or drunk driving. Other types of personal injury cases handled by Rahman Law PC:

If you have been harmed by the wrongful conduct of another, you must bring a lawsuit within a limited period. This is called a statute of limitations. Failure to bring a lawsuit, or take the required legal action, such as filing a claim where required with an administrative government agency, may eliminate your right to recover damages if someone is liable. Therefore, you should contact RAHMAN LAW in our San Francisco office or our Paso Robles office immediately for a free consultation.
