Vehicle Service Injury Attorney


Vehicle Service Injury Attorney sue liability lawyer compensation incident

When it is time for a car, truck, or SUV to be serviced, most drivers find it easier and much less time-consuming to take their vehicle to a vehicle service center or car dealership service department for the necessary maintenance or repairs. It might only be a simple oil change. But what takes you an hour or two to complete can be finished in a fraction of the time at one of the many vehicle service centers in California. In most cases, the time savings and mostly reasonable cost of these services make the choice easy for vehicle owners. However, your point of view might change once you have suffered a vehicle service injury, such as a slip and fall or injury from a falling object.

Sadly, vehicle service facilities are not the safest or cleanest places. If you are asked to walk into the work bay to look at an issue with your car or pick it up when the work is completed, you could be taking a severe safety risk. If you or a loved one recently sustained injuries at a vehicle service center, please know that you do not need to face these financial challenges and issues alone. Our skilled vehicle service injury attorneys are just a call away.

What Is The Time Limit To File My Vehicle Service Injury Lawsuit?

Many people considering legal action have no idea there is a time limit to file a lawsuit with the court. The Statute of Limitations defines how long you are given to have your lawsuit prepared and filed. While this time limit can vary based on the legal material of the claim, once the time limit has passed, the victim will permanently lose the right to seek justice and compensation via a lawsuit. So, it is vital to seek legal guidance soon after suffering a loss to ensure you understand how long you have to file a lawsuit if you decide the best resolution to meet your immediate and long-term needs.

In cases related to a vehicle service injury lawsuit, you will be given two years from the date of the incident to have your case prepared and filed with the appropriate court. If it is not filed at that time, you will lose the ability to seek compensation, as there are minimal exceptions to the time limit. Please reach out to DTLA Law Group as soon as you are able to discuss the facts of your injuries and claim. Our staff will help you understand the average time needed to gather facts before preparing your lawsuit and explain the advantages of filing a claim rapidly.

Common Causes Of Injury Accidents At A Vehicle Service Center

When you sit in the waiting area and look into the service bays of the average auto service center, the space looks relatively hazardous. Pieces of equipment are everywhere, and tools are scattered about the space. So, it is not hard to imagine suffering a slip and fall, trip and fall, or other injury when you walk out to see the issue that was discovered under the hood of your car.

As you make that trek, be sure to be on the lookout for these common hazards that could result in a severe injury:

  • Oil, grease, or other slippery materials that were spilled or leaked onto the floor
  • Hoses or cords that are lying on the floor
  • Tools or small parts left on the floor
  • Unmarked or poorly marked ramps, steps, or transitions from one flooring surface to another
  • Inventory items that are improperly stacked on overhead shelves that could fall on you
  • Equipment that is overheated and could cause a severe burn
  • Damaged or malfunctioning equipment that could result in an injury
  • Bay doors that are closing
  • Vehicles moving into or out of a bay that could result in a vehicle versus pedestrian incident
Who Is Responsible For My Vehicle Service Injury?

If you slip and fall or trip and fall in a vehicle service area, you might feel responsible or partially responsible for the injuries you suffer. However, if a tire falls from an overhead shelf and strikes you, you are likely to blame the service center for the injuries you sustained. What most injury victims do not understand is that all property owners and their staff have an obligation to guests of the property regarding ensuring their safety.

Duty of care is part of premises liability law that defines the level of care a property owner or their agents must provide with regard to safety on the property. The minimum level of care that must be provided is to be equal to what the average prudent person would offer in a similar situation. That makes it easy for property owners and their staff to understand what is expected of them and deliver it.

For example, if tools or other small items are strewn on the floor, you would pick them up before someone walks through the space. Likewise, if there is oil spilled on the floor, you would clean it up and even mark the area with a sign or other warning to alert others to the increased hazard. These are the same actions most people would take and consider to be common sense acts. They are also the actions required by the staff at a vehicle service facility under duty of care.

If the staff fails to provide the proper level of care, they are said to be negligent in their duty of care. In addition, if at a later time that negligence is found to have caused an injury accident or contributed to one, the property owner can be held liable for the victim’s losses and expenses due to their injuries. Please get in touch with DTLA Law Group at your earliest opportunity if you have suffered an injury accident at an automotive service center and believe that staff negligence could have been the reason you were injured. Even if the staff was only partially to blame, you could seek some compensation to help cover the cost of your medical care and other expenses.

How Much Is The Average Vehicle Service Injury Lawsuit Worth?

It is critical to understand that the value of a lawsuit will be based on the losses and expenses suffered by the victim. That means the value of a case where the victim sustained severe injuries will be significantly more than the value of a claim where the injuries were less serious. You will work closely with the staff at DTLA Law Group to compile all your allowable losses and expenses created by the injuries you suffered at the vehicle service center to ensure you are fully compensated for your losses. Items typically included in a personal injury lawsuit are:

  • All current and future medical expenses related to the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of the injuries suffered at the vehicle service center
  • The replacement cost of any personal property that was destroyed or damaged in the incident
  • Your lost income if the injuries you suffered prevent you from performing your normal job until you are fully recovered or if you miss time at work to attend medical appointments related to the injuries sustained at the vehicle service center
  • All expenses and fees related to your vehicle service injury lawsuit
