How do personal injuries occur in Camarillo?
Many people think of personal injuries as happening only in car accidents.

- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Uber or Lyft accidents
- Bus accidents or other mass transit incidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Premises liability accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective product incidents

It is important to understand this is not a complete list of how injuries can occur. If you have been hurt because of another person’s actions, contact our personal injury lawyers for a free consultation of your case.
These injuries have unexpected expenses
A personal injury can lead to a variety of expenses that a victim may not expect. On top of immense medical expenses related to the injury, there are also other “hidden expenses” that a victim and their family could incur. This could include lost income if they cannot work while they recover. This could also include expenses for medication or medical devices necessary for a person to make a recovery. In many cases, a personal injury victim will need to make modifications to their home or vehicle in order to aid their mobility.
These expenses may not seem realistic, but those suffering from the following injuries often incur tens of thousands of dollars in damages:
- Traumatic brain injuries or open head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries with possible paralysis
- Internal organ damage and internal bleeding
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
Be aware of the statute of limitations for these claims
In California, the statute of limitations stipulates that a personal injury victim has two years from the date an injury occurs to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Cases filed after this two-year period will likely be dismissed.
