What Is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury is any type of harm that is caused by another person or company's negligence or carelessness. In order to file a personal injury claim, the incident must have been caused by another person or company.
There are many different types of personal injuries, including the following:
Who Is Responsible for My Injury?
In order to file a personal injury claim, you will need to prove that someone else was responsible for your injuries. You will need to show that this person owed you a duty of care, that they failed to uphold this duty, and that this failure resulted in your injuries. If the person or company who is responsible for your injuries is unable to pay the compensation you deserve, you may be able to sue multiple parties who all contributed to your injuries.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for a wide range of damages. These damages can help you get back on your feet after your injury and can help you pay for the expenses you will face in the future. Our team can help you recover compensation for all of the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
In some cases, we may also be able to recover punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant for their actions and can help deter them and others from engaging in similar behavior in the future. Punitive damages are only awarded in cases where the defendant has acted with extreme recklessness or malice.
Do I still have a case if I received a traffic citation stating I cause of the accident?The situation depends if the accident was not completely your fault. You can still recover damages from the other driver for the portion of the accident that was his or her fault.
What is a wrongful death claim?This type of claim can be filed by the survivors of an individual who has died due to another party’s negligence or misconduct.
What types of recovery are available for the families & survivors of wrongful death victims?The family members & survivor of victims may be able to secure damages for economic loss, pain and suffering the victim went through before their passing, loss of parental guidance, and the loss of services the deceased provided.
Who has the right to bring a wrongful death claim?
Relatives of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim. However, if the person filing the claim is a minor, they may require an adult guardian in order to file a lawsuit. Depending on the situation, other legal dependents and members of the victim’s family may be able to pursue claims.
What is medical malpractice?
Law defines medical malpractice as negligence committed by a professional health care provider - a doctor, nurse, dentist, hospital, hospital worker, etc. - whose performance fails to meet the standard of care expected of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient. The profession itself sets the standard for medical malpractice by its own custom and practice.
