While most people get injured due to someone else’s negligence sometimes people are injured as a result of an intentional battery. Frequently, these are committed in connection with a road rage incident.
Road rage incidents can lead to severe injuries but getting compensation for them can be very challenging because California law prevents insurance companies from providing liability coverage in situations where the defendant’s misconduct was intentional in nature. In such cases it is possible to proceed with a compensation claim but only if the defendant owns real estate or other substantial non-exempt personal assets.
In one memorable case a client of Landis Law Firm was driving his car on a narrow country road in the Corralitos area and was attacked and severely injured by an aggressive stranger in a road rage incident. Fortunately, we were able to determine that the man who attacked our client was a homeowner near the site of the incident and at the end of the litigation the perpetrator was forced to transfer the equity in his home to our client.
If you were injured as a result of a battery you should contact Landis Law Firm for an appointment right away.
