Injuries occur in seconds and can change lives forever. If you have been injured at work, in a car accident, at a place of business or on public property due to the negligence of someone else, the personal injury lawyers at Hanna Leung, Professional Law Corporation, in San Francisco, can help.
The financial fallout of a serious injury can be crippling. Hospital bills and other daily costs mount while you are unable to work and collect a paycheck. If the accident that caused your injury was caused by someone else, we will pursue a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf, allowing you to recover:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Property loss
- Compensation for pain and suffering
Work-Related Accidents That Can Lead To Personal Injury Lawsuits
Many of the personal injury cases that we handle stem from work-related accidents. Although California workers’ compensation laws prevent employees from suing employers in most workplace accidents, you may pursue a personal injury claim if the accident was caused by a third party. Examples include an injury caused by an independent contractor, a motorist who caused an accident while you were driving for work purposes, or a workplace injury caused by defective equipment.
We do not collect a fee unless we recover a financial settlement or judgment for you.
In addition, if a worker is injured due to the “serious and willful misconduct” of an employer or the employer’s managing representative, the amount the injured worker can recover may be increased by 50 percent of the total amount collected. “Serious and willful misconduct” by an employer is broadly defined as any intentional act — or failure to act — combined with the knowledge that serious injury is likely to result from that failure to act.
