Personal Injury Attorney Los Angeles: Securing Compensation against Medical Transport Company
At Fassonaki Law Firm, P.C., a Los Angeles personal injury law firm, we recently represented a client who fell from a wheelchair in a car operated by a medical transport company due to a braking movement made by the driver. Our client was severely injured.
Our legal team at Fassonaki Law Firm P.C. investigated the details of the accident and collected all the relevant evidence. In this case, the driver did not fulfill the duty of care for their passengers under California Civil Code (hereinafter, CIV) §2100. Insured is also bound to provide vehicles that are safe and fit for the purposes for which they are used under CIV § 2101.
Under the CIV §1714, everyone is responsible for his or her lack of ordinary care which results in injury to another person. The doctrine of res ipsa loquitur may also apply and add another layer of liability.
It was our team's effort and commitment that led us to a great victory. The driver and medical transport company were at fault for the incident under California law and accepted liability for the loss. Our client was entitled to compensation for his bodily injuries, including economic and non-economic damages.
