Duty of Care
A duty of care refers to the type of care a reasonable person would use in like circumstances. For example, when you drive responsibly, and another driver fails to use the same respect, the resulting accident can cause you unfair and expensive injuries.
When a person, company, manufacturer, or other fails to use care, they are often negligent for your harm. This negligence can make them liable for your damages.
Understanding duty of care and proving negligence is best left to a Fresno personal injury lawyer. These critical elements of a personal injury case are what make civil cases complex and challenging.
A member of our team can get to work piecing together the details of your case. They can then present your case during negotiations with an insurance company or at trial.

The Cost of Your Injuries
The financial impact of suffering serious harm can leave you unable to work and facing insurmountable medical costs.
Possible compensation in a personal injury case include:
- Medical costs associated with transport, hospital fees, and other related expenses
- Ongoing medical costs for therapies, treatments, and medications
- Lost wages due to your time spent recovering
- Diminished earning capacity, if you are unable to return to your job
- Pain and suffering due to your diminished quality of life
Each personal injury case is unique, and the outcome of your case depends on various factors. Pursuing compensation requires skillful negotiations with an insurance company, and in some cases, it requires going to trial.
You have a two-year time period for filing your civil lawsuit under California Code of Civil Procedure (CCP) §335.1. Do not miss your opportunity for legal action. Contact Ben Crump Law, PLLC today.
If you lost a spouse, the loss of their income is just one form of compensation possible. The loss of their companionship is a non-economic loss that is priceless to you, yet difficult for an insurance company or jury to understand
At Ben Crump Law, PLLC, we can convey the significance of your loss in a way that resonates with others. In addition to a spouse, the following may also qualify for a wrongful death case under CCP § 337.60:
- Domestic partner
The unexpected loss of a child can result in substantial costs, like that of a funeral and burial. Possible compensation for your loss may include the reimbursement of these costs, along with the final medical expenses for your child.
Wrongful death lawsuits must meet the same two-year statute of limitations as personal injury cases under CCP § 335.1. If this time expires without your case filed, the court may no longer consider your legal claim valid.
A two-year time period is not very long as you deal with your loss. Ensure your case meets the required time limit by allowing Ben Crump Law, PLLC to work for you.
