Personal Injury

The four major types of personal injury cases that attorney Matthew Paré handles are (1) auto accidents, (2) trip-and-fall, (3) product defect, and (4) medical malpractice.  In general, if you have suffered harm due to the negligence or recklessness of another you may be entitled to compensation.  The monetary compensation will be for medical bills, loss of earnings, and general pain and suffering damages.  Attorney Matthew Paré can help obtain compensation for significant and painful physical injuries or the loss of a loved one.

The most common scenario that gives rise to a personal injury claim is an auto accident.  This can involve cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, scooters, or pedestrians, and attorney Matthew Paré has extensive experience in litigating all such cases.  In fact, he is regarded as the best car accident attorney in Chula Vista and has helped clients obtain very significant monetary damages.  Common legal issues that come up in auto accident cases include questions of insurance coverage as well as causation of injuries and the extent of the injuries, and attorney Matthew Paré’s experience and familiarity in these matters will help result in the best possible outcome.  He also has connections with the best doctors both to treat patients as well as serve as expert witnesses when necessary.

Trip-and-fall cases are a type of premises liability case where an injury occurs at a particular location because of a hazardous or dangerous condition.  Typically, this will be an unsafe sidewalk or something that was spilled on the floor, for example.  One of the challenges with such a claim is establishing liability because in order for the defendant to be legally responsible for the injury there must be negligence.  Negligence is proven in a trip-and-fall case by showing that the defendant had notice of the condition and did not correct it.  Establishing those facts can involve extensive discovery, including depositions, and expert testimony as well.  Another issue that is common in premises liability cases is the idea of comparative negligence and it is especially important to have an experienced attorney litigating these matters.  Attorney Matthew Pare has successfully resolved cases with the City of Chula Vista, the City of National City, the City of San Diego, the County of San Diego, as well as numerous private businesses on trip-and-fall cases.

Product defect cases are when someone is injured by a defective product.  The defect can be a design defect or a manufacturing defect, and if the defective product injured someone that can give rise to an injury claim.  Just as a couple of recent examples, attorney Matthew Paré successfully represented someone who was significantly injured on a Jet Ski and someone else who was injured on a defective bicycle.  If there is a recall on the product that can be helpful in proving the defect.  Expert witnesses can also be very important in product defect cases, including engineers and medical experts.

Medical malpractice cases are when a medical provider was negligent and injured a patient as a result of their negligence.  Attorney Matthew Paré also has extensive experience in such cases against doctors, medical groups, and dentists.  There are unique challenges in medical malpractice cases, including limits on the recovery of non-economic damages and medical malpractice cases are very expert intensive because expert witnesses must give testimony about the standard of care and the cause of the injury, as well as the diagnosis and prognosis.  Attorney Matthew Paré is intimately familiar with the nuances of medical malpractice litigation.  In fact, attorney Matthew Paré was the plaintiff’s attorney in the first civil jury trial in San Diego County after the courts were closed for a long time during the pandemic, and the case settled during the trial itself.

The bottom line is if you have suffered injury due to the wrongdoing of another, you may be entitled to have your medical bills paid, as well as receive compensation for lost earnings and pain and suffering.  It is important to contact an attorney immediately to ensure that your rights are protected.  It is also critical to obtain medical care in a timely manner shortly after an injury-causing accident.  Even if you do not have health insurance attorney Matthew Paré will be able to ensure that you obtain the medical care you need and can refer clients to medical providers that can see patients on a lien if necessary.  Receiving the necessary medical care soon after the accident occurs is best for your health, as well as your personal injury claim.
