Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld Relentlessly Protecting California Workers' Rights Since 1956

Santa Barbara Personal Injury Attorney

When a person is injured in an accident, it can lead to some of the hardest times in their lives. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to earn a living and enjoy time spent with family and friends. Old hobbies may no longer be possible, and a long road of recovery often lies ahead. When that injury comes because another person—or organization—was at fault, the injured plaintiff deserves justice. That justice comes in the form of a fair financial settlement. Our Santa Barbara personal injury lawyers have a long track record of successfully securing the settlements our clients depend on.

How To Win a Personal Injury Case 

It’s important to point out that if the injury in question happened on the job, it will be covered by workers’ compensation. However, this does not preclude also seeking a personal injury settlement. The benefits offered by workers’ comp are limited and cannot address the far-reaching quality-of-life losses that a personal injury claim can. But—and this is no less important to point out—a workers’ comp case only requires proof of injury. A personal injury case requires proving the fault of the defendant. 

To secure a settlement in personal injury cases, the injured plaintiff’s lawyers must demonstrate that the defendant was negligent. Negligence is a specific legal concept that has four components. All four must be proven, or there is no basis for a lawsuit. While most cases are settled in negotiations rather than in court, it remains important for your lawyer to demonstrate that they can prove negligence if a case is allowed to go to trial. Having this leverage is crucial to obtaining the fair settlement you deserve.
