Experienced Ontario, California Personal Injury Attorneys
There are an unlimited number of ways that we can be injured in our daily lives: a slip and fall on a wet floor inside the grocery store, a car accident on the way to work, or a defective product that breaks and causes a serious burn or cut are just some of the ways we can find ourselves needing medical attention. We may be tempted to shrug off some of these injury incidents as just another “cost” of living in an imperfect world. However, some personal injury incidents can result in severe harm to ourselves or to our loved ones. The harm is not just physical: medical bills can quickly accumulate, days missed from work turn into weeks or months, and before we know it the cost of our injuries has reached a level we cannot bear ourselves.
There is no need to be victimized twice: if you have been injured in a personal injury accident caused by the actions of another person, you may be able to hold that other person accountable for the harm and expenses he or she has caused you. The experienced Ontario, CA personal injury lawyers at Schwartzberg | Luther, APC are equipped to help you do just this.

The Centerpiece of a Personal Injury Case – Negligence
In order for a person to be held legally liable for your injuries and expenses after a personal injury incident, you must be able to present proof to a court that it is more likely than not that:
- The other person owed you a duty of care, requiring him or her to act in a reasonably careful manner so as not to cause harm to you or another;
- The other person then breached the duty of care by acting in a manner that was unreasonable and careless under the circumstances;
- The other person’s unreasonable and careless behavior caused you to suffer an injury;
- The injury you suffered can be compensated through an award of monetary damages.
Once this is shown, you must then prove the extent of the harm that the other individual’s negligence caused you. So long as you can establish (1) the extent or “cost” to you of an injury or loss and (2) that the injury or loss was caused in whole or in part by the other person, you can obtain a judgment ordering the other person to compensate you for the injury or loss. This can include an order that the other person pay:
- Your medical expenses;
- Your ongoing treatment needs;
- Your lost wages;
- Any future income you could have earned but are not able to because of disability;
- For your pain and suffering.
