San Diego Personal Injury Lawyers

San Diego Personal Injury

San Diego is known as the birthplace of California.  A historic center of the United States Navy, major port of international trade, and more recently a center of biotechnology and tech innovation, San Diego’s mild climate and beautiful beaches attract millions of visitors each year.  San Diego is also a gateway to Mexico and a significant hub of transnational trade that is crucial for the health of the broader economy of the United States.  In short, San Diego has earned a reputation as a highly attractive economic, cultural, and innovation hub of California, a reputation that has resulted in significant growth in recent decades.

Unfortunately, more people means more risk.  San Diego is cross-cut by some of the most dangerous highways in the state, and each year thousands of San Diego visitors and residents are injured in car accidents.  Those beautiful beaches abut a dangerous ocean that poses a significant risk of drowning for unskilled swimmers.  Everyday hazards like unsecured construction sites or slippery restaurant floors are likewise a constant risk for unwary citizens.

Luckily, the distinguished personal injury lawyers at The Dominguez Firm are available to help all injured San Diegans, whatever the cause.  With over thirty years of experience helping thousands of clients in San Diego and all over the Golden State, The Dominguez Firm is the right choice if you want to secure compensation and justice for your injuries.

San Diego Accident Statistics

According to the San Diego Department of Public Health, in San Diego County between 2011 and 2016 there were:

  • 21 drowning accidents
  • 307 fall incidents that required medical intervention
  • 49 firearm-related accidents
  • 1,201 injuries that were not self-inflicted
  • 389 poison-related injuries

By far, the biggest injury risk to San Diego residents is motor vehicle accidents.  Car accidents take more lives than intentional murders in San Diego.  According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, in 2016 in San Diego there were:

  • 9,476 traffic accident-related injuries and fatalities
  • 714 motorcycle injuries and fatalities
  • 753 pedestrian injuries and fatalities
  • 457 bicyclist injuries and fatalities

What Kind of Compensation Can San Diego Injury Victims Win?

Under California law, personal injury victims are intitled to compensation relating to damages arising from injuries that occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct.  In other words, if you are injured either because of someone else’s direct actions or their failure to take appropriate precautions to ensure your safety or otherwise exposing you to unjustifiable risk, you may be entitled to compensation.

Damages may include economic losses such as:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medications and medical equipment
  • Cost of ongoing treatment
  • Physical or occupational therapy
  • Loss of income or income-generating capacity
  • Property loss or damage

Damages may also include non-economic losses such as:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)    
  • Physical pain
  • Debilitation or disfigurement
  • Negative impact on quality-of-life
  • Loss of companionship or consortium

Non-economic damages relate to emotional, psychological, or relational losses that result from an accident or injury, and thus are more difficult to quantify.  However, for many victims, these losses are the most meaningful and difficult to bear—and at The Dominguez Firm, we understand that compensation for all losses, economic and non-economic, are crucial for our clients in order to allow them to move forward.

Donald Nielsen

Thank you so much for giving us a quick a great service! I was assigned an investigator the same day I called regarding my husband’s accident. Our investigator was professional and kept us updated regarding his arrival to our meeting. He answered all of our questions and right away assigned us to a chiropractor.

Delia R.

One of the best law firms in the world! I truly want to address the dedication and trust the Dominguez Firm gives. As a woman, it’s really hard to find good people to trust. I was very pleased how [they] handled my property damage. Not to mentioned the great service that my paralegal had towards me and my family. He was very tentative towards my questions and concerns. He helped me get the health care I needed towards my injury. My attorney tried to get me and my family the right compensation and he did. I’m truly blessed to have found the Dominguez Firm!
