All injuries are “personal.” Yet, when you are involved in an accident, the impact goes beyond just medical care; both you and your family can face severe physical, emotional and financial hardships. If you have suffered a serious personal injury, or lost a loved one to an accident, you need to rely on experienced professionals to assist you.
With over 60 years of combined experience working extensively both with and against the insurance industry and self-insured companies, the attorneys at Tiedt & Hurd bring a unique perspective to the handling of personal injury litigation. We know how the insurance companies operate.
Tiedt & Hurd is committed to representing those client with serious personal injuries or who have wrongful death claims that often are only resolved in either trial or arbitration. We focus on helping those people who have been badly injured, and the families of people who have been killed, because of someone else’s negligence.
While not all of our personal injury cases proceed to trial, we prepare each case as if it will be presented to a jury in court. Our years of experience have taught us that even if a case never goes to trial, the knowledge that we are ready, willing and able to try a case encourages the other side to take the case seriously. This results in better results for our clients when the opposition knows that we do not have to accept their offer and are willing to take our case to a jury.
We believe that a good trial lawyer organizes the evidence and the documentation in a way that is understandable to a jury. We will take the police reports, medical reports and the seemingly tedious collection of other voluminous records and turn them into a compelling story about the accident, the injury, and the impact it has on your life and your family. A good trial lawyer is honest with the client about his or her chances. Most importantly, a good trial lawyer is tireless in pursuit of justice for the client.
Personal Injury Lawsuits: How Inland Empire Injury Lawyers Can Help
Civil Code section 1714(a) provides, in part: “Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person…” Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care to prevent harm to oneself or to others. A person can be negligent by acting or by failing to act. A person is negligent if he or she does something that a reasonably careful person would not do in the same situation or fails to do something that a reasonably careful person would do in the same situation. [Judicial Council of California Civil Jury Instruction 401] What this means is that everyone is responsible for their wrongful conduct.
If you have been seriously injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to recover for past and future medical expenses, past and future loss of earnings, and for general damages to reimburse you for your pain and suffering.
The essential element of any personal injury claim is the ability to present evidence that your injury was caused, even if only partially, by the wrongful or negligent conduct of another. Your injuries may be physical, emotional or both. The attorneys at Tiedt & Hurd can and will assemble all necessary medical information, and utilize the best experts and use state of the art presentation media to make the most of your case.
