AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT, DOG BITE, OR VICTIM OF A SHOOTINGThese types of cases are civil matters. A crime has not been committed but rather an accident or negligence has occurred. These are the type of cases that TERRY M. GOLDBERG can handle at Goldberg & Gage.
In the event of most accidents, people don*t hurt each other on purpose and so it*s not a crime. Jail time is not a punishment for an accident. The at-fault person is not charged with any felonies or misdemeanors. Instead, a civil wrong is referred to as a tort. A tort is a wrongful act or an infringement of a right leading to civil legal liability. In other words, the injured party has the right to be made whole by the person responsible for the accident. Our goal is to see that our client receives a sufficient settlement to meet their needs resulting from an accident. These needs may include payment of medical bills, repairs or replacement of a vehicle or other property damage and compensation for lost wages or compensation for lost capacity to function in normal, everyday activities. Some cases are settled at an early stage and some cases result in the filing of a lawsuit.
At Goldberg & Gage we can decide with your approval the best approach to take for you. Call Terry M. Goldberg at (818) 340-9252.
