Negligence essentially means failure to take action or mistakes in actions. Accidents that could have been prevented through the use of reasonable caution give rise to a claim for personal injury. To have a personal injury claim there has to be bodily injury or emotional distress. Physical injury has to be documented. Claiming bodily injury, but without evidence to support the claim generally result in little or no compensation. It is not uncommon, especially for men to suffer and injury, but forgo medical treatment. If there are no medical records to support the injury, there is essentially no evidence to support the injury claim. An exception would be a very objective injury such as a severed finger, toe, or other body part. A wrongful death claim arises when a death results from someone's negligence. If someone fails to take reasonable care to prevent injury or death and a person dies because of someone else's negligence a claim for wrongful death arises. A personal injury claim as well as a wrongful death claim is personal. One cannot make a personal injury claim for the injury to a relative, friend, or spouse. The same is true of a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim is personal and claim cannot be made on behalf of someone else. Wrongful death claims are strongly related to probate rules. Heirs are those that are financially dependent on the deceased and that have a strong kinship relationship. Claims for emotional distress have be documented as well. If there is no medical evidence to support the claim, generally the claim is minor. The need for a Sacramento Injury Lawyer arises when there are significant damages. Minor damages do nor require an attorney. If you suffer what are called soft tissue injuries and have medical bills of a few hundred dollars. It is unlikely that you need legal representation. If you suffer a serious injury, such as fractured rib, herniated disc, food poisoning requiring long term care, scars to your face, a dog bite needing stitches, or an injury requiring hospitalization, then the need for an attorney is much higher.
