Personal Injury

Personal injury is a genetic term and covers a wide variety of lawsuits and resulting injuries.

These injuries can result from dangerous products, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, fires and burns, landowner negligence, workplace injuries, environmental injuries, as well as automobile and motorcycle accidents


Whether it’s a dog bite, medication error or vehicle accident, you have a legal right to be compensated for your injuries if they occur as a result of someone else’s reckless behavior.


In many cases, an experienced and skilled personal injury lawyer may be just what you need to convince an insurance company into paying you the compensation you deserve for injuries sustained. Many personal injury cases can quickly become complicated and convoluted.


One of the most important decisions you will need to make is hiring the right personal injury lawyer to help with your case.


Types of Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury law or tort law refers to the rules that allow an injured plaintiff to get compensation when another person’s negligent or intentional act caused the plaintiff's injuries. There are a wide variety of different circumstances that can result in a personal injury case.


The situations that can give rise to personal injury litigation include:


  • Workplace accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Medication Error
  • Insurance Bad Faith
  • Toxic poisoning
  • Wrongful death
  • Premises liability
  • Head injuries
  • Burns
  • Dog bites
  • Elder abuse
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Injury from violent crime


Not every situation in which someone is injured will mean that someone is liable. The case has to include other elements, including negligence and actual injury.


Pursuing a Personal Liability Case

In the immediate aftermaths of suffering an injury because of another person’s negligence, the first thing the victim must do is address any medical needs. Whether you have decided to file a lawsuit for the injuries or are unsure, you should speak to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.


The first few days following the accident may be the most important time in the case because the evidence from the accident can be found and preserved. Witnesses also have a better recollection of what occurred, and any injuries can be accurately documented.


That’s why you should speak to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and understand what your options are regarding a claim. In many cases, the insurance companies will contact you earlier to make you believe they have your best interest at heart. However, in most cases, they will only protect the interest of their client.


If you or a loved one suffered a personal injury due to the negligence of another party, you should contact a personal injury attorney who will represent you with dedication and tenacity.
