Sacramento Attorneys Hold Negligent Parties Accountable for Your Injury

California lawyers press your case for compensation statewide

From our law office in Sacramento, the attorneys at Mastagni Holstedt, APC represent people throughout California who have been injured due to the negligence of another. Our practice extends to all cases of personal injury and wrongful death, including premises liability, medical malpractice, and products liability. Our Sacramento car accident attorneys also handle every type of injury, from dog bites to motor vehicle and aviation accidents and other catastrophic injuries.

Negligence at a Glance

Everyone owes a duty to act with the reasonable care that one would expect from the ordinary, average person. When someone violates that duty through careless or reckless conduct, that person was negligent. When the breach of that duty causes injury to another, the law allows the injured party to sue for the damages that were inflicted. Injured plaintiffs are entitled to recover for economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses are ascertainable costs such as property damage, past and future medical expenses, and lost wages from missed work or future diminished earning capacity. Non-economic losses are less tangible, including such damages as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.

In some cases, attorney fees and court costs may be recovered against a negligent defendant. In cases where the defendant’s conduct is found to be particularly egregious or malicious, punitive damages are sometimes also assessed.

Premises Liability

Property owners owe a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe manner, free of dangerous conditions. It is the duty of the owner to inspect the property and either fix any dangerous conditions or post adequate warnings. Slip and fall accidents in restaurants, supermarkets, and department stores are examples of premises liability cases. Other common causes of premises liability injuries include:

  • Wet and slippery floors from spilled food, drinks, or grocery items
  • Wet or icy sidewalks
  • Cracked or broken sidewalks
  • Unmarked steps
  • Broken escalators or stairways without adequate handrails
  • Bumps in carpets
  • Exposed wiring

Wrongful Death

When an accident due to negligence causes death rather than personal injury, the family of the deceased may sue for wrongful death. Plaintiffs in a wrongful death action are usually the spouse or surviving children of the deceased, but may also be grandchildren, dependent parents, or next of kin, depending upon the circumstances. Damages in a wrongful death action are those suffered by the surviving family members. Economic damages include funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of household services. Non-economic damages include loss of companionship, loss of marital relations, and loss of training and guidance.
