Who is Liable for My Injuries from a Los Angeles Moving Van Accident?
Questions of negligence, liability, and damages in accidents involving Los Angeles, CA moving vans are rarely straightforward. Moving van accidents may be caused by negligent drivers or van rental companies that don’t keep their vehicles safely maintained.
Federal law provides that vehicle owners that are in the business of renting out their vehicles are not automatically liable for an injury to another person. To hold the van owner liable for your injuries, you’d have to prove that the van owner is engaged in the business of renting vehicles, and the van owner itself was negligent.
Proving negligence can be difficult. You have to show that:
- The moving van owner or driver owed you a legal duty to reasonably protect you from harm
- The defendant breached that duty by engaging in unreasonable conduct
- The breach of duty was the actual and proximate cause of the accident
- You suffered damages as a result
For example, if the owner rented the moving van to an unqualified person who caused a crash, the van owner, or their insurance company, could be held liable. Or if the owner failed to maintain the moving van in a reasonably safe condition which resulted in an accident, they could also be held responsible.
Because any number of people could be liable for the injuries you sustain in a Los Angeles moving van accident, it’s important to have a seasoned personal injury attorney review your case. M&Y Personal Injury Lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation into your accident to determine who is responsible for compensating you for your injuries.
What Types of Damages Can I Recover for My Los Angeles Moving Van Accident Injuries?
Accidents involving moving vans can cause injuries from minor cuts to traumatic brain injuries. No matter what your injuries are, if you were hurt in a moving van accident because of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to your full spectrum of damages.
The law allows you to recover your economic damages. These compensate you for your reasonable and necessary out-of-pocket expenses like your medical bills, cost of rehabilitation, lost wages, property damage, and other financial losses as a result of the accident.
You can also recover non-economic damages, which compensate you for your pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other subject, non-monetary losses.
